Jet-black Apple iPhone 7 is here with a water-resistant body, better cameras, 256GB capacity -- and no headphone jack (hands-on)

 

After months of rumors, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are here in the flesh! Apple announced both today at its launch event in San Francisco.

Great phone

 

Apple never disappoints me. Well except for the price of their products. I only have 1 problem with the phone and that is the headphone jack. I need it... I tried using the converter but that dosen't work in my car. Apple has no solution for this.....

Forever freezing/locking up

 

I upgraded to an iphone7 because my iphone6 constantly locked up when trying to use it. However I'm having the same issues with my Iphone7. the screen locks up entering in my password, typing a phone number, playing games, taking photos, accessing the...

Fantastic phone

 

I love my iPhone 7. Very reliable, not too much of a difference from my previous iPhone 6s. I straight away got the tempered glass, mistake I think. It didn't take long by for it to crack. There are better options on the market now for unbreakable...

Just another iPhone

 

Really not to much of a change. Takes a while to adjust to the home button but once you have that sorted it is just the same. No need to update iPhones just make sure you update ios system it's really the same just a new point to sell products with.

Apple service died with Steve Jobs!

 

o make an appointment and then come back and stand in line again for the appointment to start fixing our iPhone. Apple needs to improve its products and services. Conclusion - never buy an iPhone, other phones are better.

Bought out of habit but not a big step up from my iPhone 6

 

red of a $1000 phone being good only for a few years. I would not take the extended warranty. You're covered for 2 years under Australian consumer law anyway. There is little to recommend it over any previous model. As i said before, if you don't need...

Amazing

 

I am really happy with my new iphone 7. It is really easy to use and very intuitive. I realised I dont have to think about certain little things because the phone does them for me.(worry that I will stop a call with my ear while talking for example)...

Planned Obsolescence - Will only last you 3 years

 

Apple (like many other big corporations) are thieves, they purposely make their older models obsolete to fleece you for another $1000+. They do not sell spare parts for your phone like screens and battery, again to make it impossible for you to repair....

Apple iPhone 7 for the win

 

I have recently upgraded to the iPhone 7. There's not too much difference from the iPhone 6 but the small changes are wonderful and so practical. My fave with this phone is the camera, I use it now as my main camera and don't bother bring my Nikon....
