Checkout Apple iPhone 7 Specs, Why All The Hype?

Apple finally launched iPhone 7 yesterday but the specifications isn't near to my expectations considering all the hypes and media praises. Yes it has Water resistant, dual camera, AirPods & more but in actual sense and when compared with Samsung Galaxy Note 7 i don't think the device worth all the admiration.

Some of the highlight features on the iPhone 7 is the Static home button that is now in solid state, which means you can't physically press or click it in -- kind of like the Motorola Moto Z and OnePlus 3. It's pressure-sensitive, including "taptic feedback", which just means that apps can give you three levels of pressure and haptic feedback, like a light or strong buzz. It doesn't feel like a button and definitely takes getting used to, but so far it seems to get the job done.

Another highlight specs is the faster processor in a A10 Fusion chip which is a 64-bit, quad-core processor that Apple says is 40 percent faster than last year's A9 processor. Two cores are high-performance, the other two are "high efficiency," which means they'll conserve battery while handling tasks. Take-away message: deeper visual graphics, especially with gaming

The next is the replacement of headphone jack with apple's new new EarPods headphones which connects through the Lightning connector port; you'll also get an adaptor in the box. Apple's also pushing new, funky-looking AirPods headset connects wirelessly through auto-pairing. These worked pretty well, actually, and sounded pretty good in a the loud demo room according to Cnet.

Then what is the need of all those features when Apple can't work on their iPhone battery performance? Why embedding a non removable 1,960 mAh poor battery on this device? It's absolutely hilarious.

Also why can't Apple at least increase the screen size of this device to at least 5-inches? Why just 4.7-inches? Only this two aspects of the device is a deal breaker for me on this device. Well, take a look at the full phone Specifications of iPhone 7 below.

  2. In answering your question, i won't buy the device at such an amount

  3. Most of the hyped features have already been experienced by Android users before now.

  4. Battery capacity is arguably one of the outstanding features a geek look out for when purchasing a new smartphone because without the battery, everything on the phone is useless; in fact, it is as useless as a brick in your hands and smartphone manufacturers has noticed this.

  5. According to Taiwanese media, a woman named Wu from Taichung City had purchased the gold variant of the 64 GB iPhone 8 Plus on Sept. 23. The phablet was working fine until Tuesday afternoon, when it exploded while it was kept on charging.

  6. With 70 percent of the battery power left on the iPhone 8 Plus, the woman had kept it for charging by using the original charger. Reports claim that the handset exploded in just 3 minutes. The following images show that the impact of the explosion was such that it separated the display panel from its body.

  7. Reports reveal that the woman has been an iPhone user since iPhone 4 and she has never encountered such a situation before. The Taiwanese media have also claimed that the exploded iPhone 8 Plus has been sent to the factory for investigation.
