Yesterday, while I was spending Thanksgiving with my family, my cousins boyfriend who actually works at the Apple Store, finally got himself an iPhone 7 Plus. that's right, the big dog. And unlike the iPhone 7, it's big, but offers some grate features. Here's what I got from my experience playing with it:
1. The sise and the weight was huge! it's so huge that not even my pockets can hold it. But still, Apple has done an amazing Job with the phone. I compared it with my current iPhone, the iPhone 5s, and yes, it is a bit bigger than the 5s. I'm much happyer with my iPhone 5s since it's smaller. And not only that, I much prefer smaller iPhones.
2. The apple team was correct, no earphone jack, but an adaptor is included for 3.5mm lovers. all that's their is the mic, the lightning port, and that's it. the tuchscreen was a bit larger to navigate with voiceover, and the home button was a bit different compared to the push button on previous iphones. I also felt the haptic feedback when pressed to activate the home screen, or when helled down to activate Siri. The power button is still present, but it's now on the bottom left instead of on the top.
3. and finally, the sound quality with it's built-in stereo speakers is simply incredible! compared to the mono speakers found in previous iphones, this monster can bring lots of power! I also tested the internal microphone using the built-in voice memos app and the quality was the same when recording, but when played back, I could here it in stereo. simply amazing! great job Apple!
Overall, I'm totally impressed with the iPhone 7 Plus. unfortunatly, I didn't take a look at it's little brother, the iPhone 7. Even if I did, it would include the same features as mentioned above, but a lot smaller. But you know what? I had a lot of fun playing with the iPhone 7 plus. The question is, would I be interested in purchasing it in the future? probably not, besides I'm happy with my current phone, but maybe in the future I could possibly go with the iPhone SE. but for now, I'm happy with my current iPhone 5s. Oh and one more thing, I also didn't test the 3d tuch gestures on the iPhone 7 Plus using voiceover, but aw well, maybe next time. Apple really thought it forward this year, and as long as they do not break accessibility, it's going to be fine.
