Although it sports a similar look and feel to its previous iterations, the iPhone 7 has other nifty features up its sleeve including water resistance and more powerful dual speakers. Its unique and more powerful specifications make it a worthwhile buy despite its above average price. Here’s a rundown of its specifications and features.
In contrast to its predecessors, the iPhone 7’s chassis now sports a water-resistance protection, allowing it to survive accidental plunges into a swimming pool. However, for Apple, this extra protection means the removal of the headphone jack on the bottom of the device. Nevertheless, the iPhone 7 makes up for it by having Bluetooth-enabled airpods that offer similar audio quality as earpods. The iPhone 7 also comes in a variety of color options including silver, black, jet black, red, gold, and rose gold. Unlike its previous iterations, Apple throws in the all-new red color to the iPhone 7, which was created in support of the AIDS charity called RED. All in all, the iPhone 7’s design looks impressive and is thicker due to its waterproofing feature.
Crisp, Clean, and Clear Visuals
The iPhone 7 retains the traditional display size of 4.7 inches, however, it offers better brightness and color reproduction. The device comes with a resolution of 1334x750 pixels that provides crisp, clean, and clear visuals while internet browsing and movie watching. The display also exudes rich colors and a depth that is reminiscent of a cinema screen. Not to mention, it offers just the right amount of brightness to make it easier to look at during day time or night time. Another improvement on the iPhone 7 over its predecessors is the white balance which now casts a warmer tone.
Aside from having a much-improved display, the iPhone 7 houses a top-of-the-line A10 Fusion processor under its hood – a step up from its previous iterations. Its chipset contains four cores, with two cores handling demanding tasks while the other two manages tasks that don’t need much power. As for the processing speed, the iPhone 7 delivers well whichever task you throw at it, whether it’s photo adjustment in Adobe Photoshop Express or heavy video processing on Videoshop.
Better Camera Performance
The iPhone 7’s 12 MP primary sensor may seem average in today’s industry standards but it’s not the number of pixels that makes its camera exceptional; it is its improved ability to capture color and light into the lens. Not to mention, it comes with an enhanced aperture of f/1.8 for capturing photos in low light and built-in image processing chip to hasten things while taking multiple snaps.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 7’s front snapper has been slightly upgraded to 7 megapixels to provide good quality selfies in daylight or in dimly lit surroundings. All in all, the iPhone 7’s sensors tick all the right boxes, especially when snapping photos in low light where the images appear brighter and sharper.
