Is the iPhone 7 a real improvement over the 6s, or is Apple just fiddling around a bit, tweaking design here and there while swapping in a few new parts? Let's find out.

9,3 is to low

Just came here to tell that they had deleted my comments. Because i did not agree with their beautiful 9.3 score. I even asked them to give it more marks because in PA, apple means +2 automatically. Deleting comments because your readers did not agree with your review? So professional. I will come again and comment PA. Even after u delete this comment too. And for apple fans, i do agree that iPhone 7 is a good phone. It has a stupidly fast processor, a nice camera package, and good GPU. But to condemn other phone like sony which uses the same design and praising apple for beautifully hiding the antenna lines is absurd. Dear PA team, I'm not done. This is just the beginning

Save your money an Honor 8. It's like the iPhone 7 & Galaxy S7 had a baby but it's still way better looking than you would have expected it to be. EMUI may be an issue for some people, but if you're coming from iOS, you may be pleasantly surprised. If you're a stock Android fan, you can of course just load the Google Now Launcher. Other than that it looks great, has a great screen, a very good camera, an IR Blaster, 4GB RAM and the Kirin processor seems to do a perfectly respectable job. It's probably 9/10ths of these devices but for 2/3rds the price.

It is definitely better looking. The Pixel phone sorta copied some of its design

Battery test results are in discrepancy with the tests results I found in the other sources on the Internet. All sites write that battery performance of iPhone 7 is poor.

This review is laughable. The real test for reviewers next year is if Apple releases an iPhone 7s, they would be effectively using the exact same design for 4 years in a row without it affecting the score of the phone in the slightest while if an Android manufacturer made a similar design, not exact, for two years they get destroyed in the review. Double standards at its finest. Lol

A review on iPhone 7 / iPhone 7 Plus simply cannot be complete without reference and comparison (to some degree) with HTC 10. To my knowledge, iPhone 7 series' speakers come with a very similar configuration as HTC 10, so those who care about external speakers of iPhone 7 are obviously curious how they compare with that of HTC 10. Please note that HTC 10 speakers DO offer stereo separation, in addition with the differentiation of mids/highs and bass on different speakers. This is in contrary with one review on HTC 10's speakers in PhoneArena, and I suggest reviewers here to actually go listen to one. All in all, HTC 10 came up with this almost exact configuration many months ago, so please offer a direct comparison of iPhone 7 (plus) speakers and HTC 10 speakers.

Seems like a high score for a phone with an absolutely dull and basically reused design (and it was just an okay design 2 years ago) no headphone jack which almost no one is happy about, and the new home button feels like junk compared to satisfyingly tactile clickey feel of iPhones of old.

Great review!! We just bought the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus, we love them! Our Thunder Tech cases also just came in, and they are great quality cases that really protect our phones. If anyone's looking for a phone case, here's where we got ours on Amazon. Highly recommended! Look on Amazon under Thunder Tech!
