You sir or madam possibly win the PA internet today. The iPhone is going from having female ports to being whatever the opposite of a hermaphrodite is.

ahahaha You're so silly, do you even believe what you're saying? i won't even start with IOS 10 which is a paste/copy from android, i'll get to the basic, hardware: 1. No Headphone Jack- All the way back in October 2014, OPPO released its R5 smartphone, a super-thin Android phone without a headphone jack. And LeEco’s Le 2, Le 2 Pro and Le Max 2 as well as Motorola’s Moto Z and Moto Z Force all came out this year without headphone jacks. 2. Dual Rear Camera- The first major smartphone to come with a dual camera was the LG Optimus 3D in 2011, and the HTC HTCCY +% EVO 3D which followed just a few months after. More recently, the HTC One M8 came out in 2014 with its “Duo Camera” setup then the LG G5, released in the US in April 2016 3. Stereo Speakers- Android beat out iPhone in the race on this category, with the HTC One M7 coming with stereo speakers all the way back in 2013, and then following with the M8 and then the M9 this year. The HTC 10 was released in May this year with dual speakers–one on the top of the phone and one on the bottom–just like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. 4. Water Resistance-The Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and Note 7 are all rated at to IP68, a level up from the new iPhone’s IP67 rating. IP68 means the Samsung phones should be able to withstand being submerged 1.5 meters (almost 5 feet) for 30 minutes. Going all the way back to the Motorola Defy in 2010 and the Sony Xperia Z in 2013. The Xperia Z was IP55 and IP57 rated, meaning it had some limited protection from dust, could withstand jets of water from any direction, and could be immersed from between 15 centimeters (6 inches ) and 1 meter (3.3 feet) in depth. The Defy was IP67-rated just like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Sooooo next time you write down nonsense please educate yourself you're welcome

That's the kind of sound before the device blows up. Damn, they even copied the bad feature from the note 7... /s Waiting for crazy fans to claim samsung boys are making things up :)

Thats the special iSnake feature where the snake will come out and bite your a** when you stress out the "innovative" Quad core CPU.

Another issue that Apple needs address asap, it would seem. This only makes one wonder if Apple rushed production the new iPhones. Looks like Apple needs to step it up in the QC department.

Well they sub everything out. So it'll just be a subcontractor QC issue.

They need to have their own people running point on QC, from beginning to end, on every device they build.

Snapdragon... Dragon Inside... Literally! Woah, Apple A10...? Twister Cores, eh? Perhaps, A Twister Inside, eh? A tiny little one...? Seriously though; That's... THAT'S EXACTLY WHY I DON'T BUY BRAND NEW STUFF ON THE VERY LAUNCH DAY... I wait like a tree, a GREEN tree, very patiently and quietly... I patiently listen to reviews, recalls, flaws and long term updates... And when a good deal shows up... Like a coiled viper... I STRIKE... And the truth is, almost all iPhones were prone to little problems here and there so... Oh well... G'Day!

Ladies and Gentlemen presenting the All New iFan to cool the chip from blowing up. Isn't it awesome?

I like how PhoneArena keeps the balance... One fluff piece to the Samsung crowd, the other to the iPhone crowd...! That's how mothers treat their twins! I like it...! First a Samsung Clamshell flagship... Now iPhones hissing like a snake... Everything needs a balance...! One day Samsung Boys are crying and iFans are cheering, the next day it's the very opposite! Make your viewers happy and keep them looking for more...! Brilliant strategy... And it doesn't affect NEUTRAL BLOKES like me...! G'Day!

If I heard that coming from my phone I'd run! That sounded like an explosion waiting to happen! And I'm no Fanboy or sheep. Both apple and Samsung have things I like and dislike.

Let's hope for all the pathetic isheep in here that it's just a one timer. Otherwise I'm gonna laugh my ass to pieces after this note 7 s**t.......

Is there a reason PA didn't get earlier a review unit for iPhone 7's? Most of the sites have the reviews out days ago and they all stated they had the phone for a week before the reviews came..

That's the sound of the new power system, Apple Juice. It's like steam power, but with organic apple cider instead of just water.
