iPhone 7 vs. iPhone 7 Plus: What are the differences between Apple’s 2016 Smartphones?
Apple stuck with the same screen sizes and overall design for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. If you’re the type that upgrades their iPhone when there’s a big redesign – as there has been every two years since the first phone almost a decade ago – you’ll be disappointed.
Here are some common the differences in features between iPhone 7 vs. iPhone 7 Plus.
Size: The 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus have the exact same size as their previous one.
Screen: Apple stuck with 1334 x 750 resolutions for the smaller iPhone and 1920 x 1080.
Batteries: The iPhone 7 has a smaller battery than the iPhone 7 Plus, but battery life has been bumped up across the board. The iPhone 7 gets two more hours of battery life than the iPhone 6s, while the iPhone 7 Plus gets and an hour of extra life compared to its predecessor.
RAM: Apple never mentions the memory size in its phones, so a teardown will clarify this. But the iPhone 7 is expected to have 2GB of RAM, while the iPhone 7 Plus will get 3GB of RAM.
Main camera: The iPhone 7 has a single-lens upgraded camera. But the star of the show is the iPhone 7 Plus dual camera that has several tricks up in comparison to the iPhone 7.
Price: The iPhone 7 Plus is $120 more expensive than the iPhone 7, which is slightly changed compared to previous years when the Plus model has been a $100 upgrade at each tier.
The iPhone 7 now has stereo speakers – one at the top and one at the bottom – which are a big improvement.
The processor has been upgraded to Apple’s “A10 fusion” chip. This makes it 40 per cent more powerful than the 6s and twice as powerful as the 6.
Thankfully, the iPhone 7 now comes in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB memory, finally ditching the 16GB that was simply not fit for purpose.
