The Design

Its been awhile since I laid my hands to an iOS though I am using Macbook for my laptop. I remember back then I lost had an iPhone 4s. I think Apple maintained the sleek and sophisticate look of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. I was shocked when I can’t find the audio jack and they use their own jack, that’s why they included a dongle so you can attach the old audio jack that we usually use on android phones. I think iPhone 6 and 7 looks the same except for the line at the back which curves on iPhone 7. A lot of reviews says that iPhone 7 is water resistant, but I didn’t try to do it (haha!).

The Display, UI and Home Button

When I got home after I got my Globe iPhone 7, I noticed that I can’t press the home button anymore. It’s super solid and feels like glass or like the trackpad on my MacBook. You can also feel a vibration when you press the home button, plus you can set the vibration from low to high intensity.

The display is so fresh, bright and warmer, though we compare it with our ASUS phone (Selfie, Laser and ZenFone 3) my kids told me that they are still team ASUS, sorry iPhone!

No pre-installed social media apps like Facebook or Instagram. But, as always you can download it through AppStore.

The Battery

I always look for the battery’s mAh because I usually use my phone a lot at work and events. The iPhone 7’s battery can last the whole day when I am on wifi or using data, but can last for 2-3 days when not using wifi and data.

Charging time takes almost 30 to 40 minutes when plug directly to the outlet and an hour when charging to MacBook and my kids still thinks that most of the time iPhone’s battery let them down, because they are more on games and watching videos.

The Benchmarking

We use Antutu Benchmark version 6.2 and iPhone 7 scored 122,385 and ranked number 8. See more details below:

The Camera and Sample Photos

When it comes to camera I usually go for phones that I can manually set up ISO, Exposure and shutter speed, but with iPhone I just need to click it and adjust the lighting. Though you ca choose from square, photo, video, panorama, slo-mo, and time lapse. See sample photos from different lighting and ambiance.

The iPhone Experience

I did have fun using iPhone 7 though most of the time I am rattled how to use it, since I am an android user for quite sometime. I love how sleek and sophisticated the design is and I love the matter feeling of the back case of the phone. Though I am not a fan of the new audio jack and the wireless ear pods. I am getting used to using the phones camera though most of the time I switch to android.
