Apple iPhone 7 Plus Rose Gold 32GB smartphone review
For two years, fans of "apple" products have been waiting for the release of the next version of smartphones. Finally, September 2016 was marked by the launch of the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Competent marketing policy regularly fueled interest with hints of revolutionary innovations, so the release was eagerly awaited. Looking ahead, we can admit that the revolution did not happen. Several interesting developments were presented, but there are no cardinal changes. Only the expectations of fans of taking selfies and videos came true - the new technologies used are really good, and if they do not keep up with professional cameras - then only a little. All changes are well thought out and long-awaited.
Appearance of the Apple 7 Plus smartphone
Fans of the new iPhone 6 model line - the color "Rose Gold" - were especially worried. And they were not disappointed - because the model in this color was sold very successfully, they decided to keep it in the 7th issue. "Rose gold" is a soft pastel shade that is equally suitable for both women and men. This option is available for both the Apple iPhone 7 and the enlarged plus model. What else is so good about this color? It is not so noticeable small scratches and external damage, so there is no need to immediately buy a case, as in the case of a fashionable novelty of the seventh issue - "black onyx".
What else has changed in the appearance of the "seven"? The display in Apple iPhone 7 Plus has become completely symmetrical and slightly increased in size. This happened, first of all, due to the complete refusal of the audio output. For headphones, there is the possibility of wireless connection via the Lightning port. Of course, wireless headphones are becoming increasingly popular. But it is difficult to deny the fact that the quality of some wired devices is an order of magnitude higher, both in sound and in convenience. So this is a rather controversial step, but such is the decision of the manufacturer.
The screen is still touch 5.5 "IPS LCD (1920x1080 pixels, 401ppi). Note some advantages of this display:
Retina HD and 3D Touch technology;
There is a sensitive LED backlight;
The contrast of the screen is quite comfortable, 1300: 1.
Thanks to the built-in sensor of external illumination in the dark, the brightness of the screen is adjusted automatically. It is very easy to use and comfortable for the eyes.
The iPhone 7 plus jet black introduced a second speaker, which finally led to stereo sound. Other manufacturers have long and successfully implemented this technology. It's Apple's turn. But we must pay tribute - the sound quality is excellent. Developed for a long time - but done well. The only truly revolutionary technology was the Apple Taptic Engine - a "Home" button with a tactile function. Of course, it remained completely sensory. But for those who like to press buttons, it is possible to set one of three vibration modes when pressed. Thus, the illusion of a real button is created. In fact, this limits the functionality of the new technology and creates the illusion of functionality. But she has her fans who were delighted with it.
The "Home" button only works when the iPhone is turned on and the owner touches it, thanks to the built-in fingerprint sensor, which significantly increases the reliability of the phone's use - only the owner will be able to use it. The phone is still charging through the Lightning slot, so chargers from previous versions will work, but will not work - from smartphones from other manufacturers. If you suddenly have problems with the iPhone 7 Plus camera, you can repair it in the ICOOLA service.
The novelty boasts an updated system with increased performance. The Fusion system on the Apple A10 chip is designed to eliminate all the shortcomings of previous models. The quad-core processor is designed to speed up the system with applications, both built-in and those that you have installed through the Apple Store. In normal mode, the phone continues to use all the same two cores as before. But when the load increases, two more are connected. At the same time part of the power goes to reduce battery consumption to perform all functions. This technology has been used by competitors for more than a year, in particular, by Samsung, but only at Apple it is brought to perfection and works really well. For fans of graphics applications - the system uses a six-core graphics processor. This is a very high level of quality recognized by graphics professionals.
The map remained the same, one, nano-seven. Unfortunately, manufacturers continue to adhere to the concept of single-card phones. Given that most users still have several phone numbers - this is certainly not very convenient. Especially since all competitors have long been for two SIM cards. But this is Apple's principled position.
Camera review at iPhone 7 Plus Rose Gold
The main camera of Apple iPhone 7 Plus Jet Black 32GB is offered in a new version - it is dual, and has as much as 12MP. In case of problems with the iPhone 7 Plus camera, you can perform repairs in our service center. Almost every photo aspect was affected by improvements:
Dual optics with tenx digital zoom;
There is an effect of adjusting the depth of field - you can determine how blurred the background will be;
Specialists have also implemented an improved stabilization system, this time for both photos and videos. In fact, the shooting quality on the new Apple iPhone 7 Plus is equal to shooting with a professional camera, so fans of the hashtag ShotoniPhone were satisfied.
Technical specifications for professionals also say a lot:
ƒ / 1.8 autofocus;
True Tone Quad-LED flash, which allows you to take quality pictures in any lighting;
Hybrid IR filter;
Record high quality 4K 2160p video;
Slow-mo 120 fps;
Panoramic shooting is available.
Features of the lens also deserve attention, it is wide-angle, with a brightness of f / 1.8, there is a sapphire protective glass, proven optical image stabilization, HDR technology. Each photo or video can be automatically tagged, so you'll never forget where it was taken. And posting photos immediately online has become much easier.
The front camera for selfies also got better:
Expansion of 7 MP;
New wide color range;
And most importantly - Retina Flash system with advanced flash for photos in any environment.
Video recording from the front camera has also improved thanks to new stabilization technologies. This was done mainly to support the ability to actively use the front camera for video chats and filming on the go. Now it can be done really well. The video stabilization function works very well. The camera really turned out great. Of course, this is not a revolution.
Other specifications in the Apple iPhone 7 Plus Rose Gold 32 GB have also been slightly improved, in particular, the screen has become brighter. Added support for additional Galileo and QZSS communication systems. Operating system - iOS10.
There are no slots for memory cards, the built-in memory is 32GB, and it will not be possible to increase it in the traditional way. But this model retains support for all wireless modes - Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi Direct), Bluetooth, GPS, 3G, LTE, NFC.
Of course, there is a fingerprint sensor for safety, as well as a barometer, accelerometer, distance sensor, ambient light sensor and gyroscope. So all the important functions of past models have been successfully transferred and are functioning.
External speakers are quite powerful, but, according to user reviews, fail quite quickly. The sound becomes quieter over time. Perhaps the manufacturer will find an opportunity - to fix it, at least, would very much like.
Battery in iPhone 7 Plus of 32 GB
According to the manufacturer, the battery can hold a charge for up to 16 days in standby mode and up to 21 hours in talk mode. However, practice shows much smaller figures. Unfortunately, it was not possible to fundamentally change the battery. It is also prone to the harmful effects of cold and is not intended for many hours of autonomous use. The principle of operation of the battery has not changed - lithium-polymer. So there was no revolution here either. The battery capacity has increased slightly, but this has not significantly affected its functionality.
In the mode of listening to music, the manufacturer promises up to 60 hours of battery life, in the mode of watching videos - up to 16 hours. However, practice shows that often the numbers are still much lower. Of course, it all depends on the source of music and video, but in general the battery is still not so good.
The battery is lithium-polymer, with a capacity of 2900 mAh, as always - non-removable. This is not always convenient when it fails - you need to carry the entire phone for repair. And just change the battery over time to a new one is quite problematic. In this regard, the devices of Samsung and similar manufacturers are much more convenient - over time, the battery capacity decreases, and it can be very easily replaced yourself.
According to user reviews, the smartphone keeps the charge in medium intensity for about a day. More accurate figures, of course, depend on the quality of reception, type of communication, type of Internet used. In the mode of constant surfing on the Internet, a fully charged battery lasts for 15-16 hours of use. And in this regard, the new model is not happy - still users expected drastic changes. In addition, there is still the problem of turning off the phone when used in the cold. Unfortunately, in the cold season it is recommended to use the phone with extreme caution.
Water resistance in iPhone 7 Plus
Another novelty - the iPhone 7 Plus has become waterproof. According to the manufacturer, immersing it in water to a depth of one meter will not affect its performance. This is, of course, great, now falling into a puddle does not seem to be critical for a smartphone. But we do not recommend checking. Note that moisture getting inside the case is still not an insured event. It seems that Apple itself does not believe in the water resistance of its model. So don't take any chances.
The smartphone is also declared dustproof and less prone to external influences. The case is metal, with the increased shock resistance. Which is also not recommended to check.
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Rose Gold 32GB - a great stylish reliable gadget. It is pleasant to hold in your hand, it performs its functions perfectly, first of all, provides excellent quality of communication and the Internet. Most of the novelties were aimed at improving the usual options - camera, photo lens. I would like to note the quad-core processor, which allows you to work with applications more efficiently. Pleased with the long-awaited stereo sound. This is not a revolution in the world of technology, but it is nice to note that the functional reliability of the "apple" increases with each new release. And pay special attention to the shade of "Rose Gold". He is really beautiful, and absolutely not flashy.
The new model did not disappoint fans of "apple" products, they basically got what they expected. But they also failed to attract fans of other brands - there are no technologies that would be unambiguously available only in iPhones, and at the same time - critical for users.
