  • Why do they keep putting out a new phone every year that's only a slightly modified from the version before it, making all the older versions basically obsolete? I personally think it's a ploy to get you to have to buy the upgrade since eventually they stop carrying the older iphone components like chargers, cases, etc. I had a 4S which was fine, but when I could no longer find anything I needed for it, I upgraded to a 5S, which will soon be out, too, even though it still works perfectly fine and I actually prefer the smaller screen size. Sigh.

      That's exactly what it is. It's a way for them to make sure they're getting money.

      Omg you people, have you ever heard of technical progress? That's why companies release everything new every year, to push technology further.

  • Water resistance
    Tons of Android phones are water resistant

    dual cameras
    I'd rather have one camera with higher megapixel then another camera which has optical zoom

    stereo speakers
    I have an external speaker. i don't need this

    Wide color gamut (apple website says)
    Meaningless

    No headphone jack
    You pay 300 dollars on contract for this phone and then you have to pay even more money to get apple headphones and you can't use the ones you already have. Fuck that.

    Redesigned home button
    Redesigned how? Better? Worse? I'll admit, if they brought the scroll wheel back that would be pretty cool.

    Jet black color
    I couldn't care less. My 300 dollar phone (300 dollars OFF contract) is jet black. Budget smartphones are jet black.

    25% brighter
    Great. Wasn't aware the old display wasn't bright enough

    Apple is being a lot greedier then I thought they would be given the tough competition from Samsung. Forcing people to buy their headphones now. If I was Apple I would become less exclusive, not more.

    A lot of the features they are introducing are gimmicks. And a lot of features have been a mainstay on android phones for a while now.

    I will definitely not be getting one. I think it's a waste of money. Just wait until the Iphone 8 comes out and they make a big deal out of adding the headphone jack again.

    Water resistance is cool I guess.

      I heard they are making an adaptor cable that plugs into the Lightning pin spot for charging that would turn into something you could plug older headphones or an aux cord into

    • 2mo

      @kirstengrace they give you the adapter in the box when you buy the phone. It's such a non-issue. I mean my aux cord for my car cost me $5 from Amazon, ill just buy a cable that's updated.

  • I prefer my Samsung Galaxy Edge. However, guaranteed my sister is going to try and get me to let her get an upgrade with her Iphone, but it's not going to happen. I have her on my phone plan. The last time that happened, I ended up having to pay almost $600 for her phone. She promised to pay me back, but she didn't. She has been hinting at getting another phone lately. If she asks, I'm going to tell her to get her own phone place then if she wants to upgrade. I'm not getting stuck with that bill again.

  • While I love Apple and particularly macOS I think their products are like Porsche. They hardly ever change and are boring. They're good, but boring. I have the iPhone SE though. I love the design - its timeless. And I get so annoyed by Jonny I've doing his stupid recorded announcement with each new product "Oh this is the best product we've ever done, this is so good, that is so good" blah blah blah. They make good products, but they could be so much better and more forward thinking. The VAIO laptops were the best hardware in my opinion.

      Porcshe cars are boring? Really? If you've tried driving one, even a boxer, you wouldn't be saying this. They may have not changed designs dramatically over the years, but that's actually a good thing, it preserves its' sentimental value and vintage look.
      Take for example the Carrera GT, the car that Paul Walker died in (may his sould rest in peace). It was produced from 2003-2007, never changed the design, look at it now, it doesn't age a bit! I'd gladly trade the most exotic Lambo or Ferrari for that babe.

    • 2mo

      Windows 10 sells your private info and browsing habits to 3rd parties, that's a disgusting violation of privacy. But you can easily disable them with a little software. Mac has been sending your private info behind your back since Mac OS 8.0 and you can't disable it. Good luck.

  • I really dislike the fact that there's no headphone jack! I have tiny ears and the earphones barely hold in my ears as it is, never mind completely wireless ones :(
    The plan was to get one when I upgrade at the end of the year, but really really doubting it.

      I think headphones can plug directly into the lightning jack now. I'm sure there will be some cheapo adapter for it.

What Guys Said 40

  • The new audio jack is a good move, other electronics will eventually adopt it too. What people don't know is that the 3.5mm jack is stupid, it's analog signal and it takes plenty of room inside an already crammed up device.
    Further more, the new port can serve multi purposes: recharge phone, connect to PC and audio output, maybe even HDMI output and so on, because it's digital and it can be programed. It can also send power signal to accessories that need it.
    Lastly, since it's digital, it can simulate 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound if you have the right headphones, or even just plug it into your home theatre.
    By the way, you can get a special little dongle that plugs into this new port and has a normal 3.5mm port that you plug a normal headphones into!
    Lastly, I hate Apple and their products, they are arrogant and they are for amateurs.

  • I think I like the plus model which is the one with a redesigned twin camera & better zoom & telephoto ability.

    Black is fine but I'll stick to the Gold one.

    To imagine I just bought a new 6s Plus a month ago ha ha

    Guess wait a few months & they'll come up with a 7a plus too with some more features 😋

    Stereo speakers are welcome just as much as the wireless headphones. Only problem being you can't charge when headphones are on. The idea of allowing other headphones is a good idea thus the jack / adapter for those as well.

    I'd say wait a few months & they'll come up with something better

      Yes and only with Apple's patented headphones. Bluetooth is a POS technology that does not work.
      I had to replace the bluetooth-connected mouse and keyboard that came with my iMac with hard-wired ones, because the bluetooth technology was not reliable.

    • 2mo

      @cth96190 Bluetooth does suck I agree. It's also the least secure too. But it's something they had to come up with that is for short-range use only AND Wireless. The whole connection process was a real bitch too, with the procedure typically of discovering available and enabled bluetooth devices, then you have to pair them, and then connect to bluetooth services that are supported and available.

      So yea, I'm not a big fan of Bluetooth myself either.

      Just stick with Wireless standards instead, if it has to be "Wireless" in the first place. stuff that's has these types of wireless specs or standards: "2.4 GHz wireless for long range and minimal interference"

    • 2mo

      Wi-Fi basically. The Wi-Fi standard is >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Bluetooth standards when it comes to peripherals that are cordless and wireless.

  • Just like ps4 pro, just like Xbox Scorpio, and so on. This shit should beeeeeeeeeen put into iPhone 5. Or 6s. The specs more specifically. I hate how they slap shit on the market and fix it and add to it then sell it and call it new.

  • Yeah, I'm planning to getting one.

    Yes, I know I can get samsung or whatever android equivalent specs for cheaper , but let me just say that the people that are buying Apple products, money is not a major concern for them. They are buying the brand (and the App store that come with it)

    Apple phones generally have a higher resale value compare to Android counterpart.

  • in my opinion the biggest factor of the iPhone 7, is the water resistance.

      Not without the headphone jack. That's a big nistake they made.

  • The head phone jack is pointless to most Iphone users. I only ever use the iphone issued head phones. Everything else connects through Bluetooth. Also, the phone comes with an adapter in the box if you need it.

      People are really having a hard time with this missing headphone jack. Im willing to bet the most Android based phones will do the same soon but with a mini-USB plug instead.
      If that ever happens half these will never buy a new phone ever apparently.

    • 2mo

      Its just a transitional point. Its wear the change is occurring. Once that ship has sailed, wireless will be everywhere and it will be yesterdays news

      But One day those wireless headphones are going to run out of juice and you won't be near a charging outlet. Guess no music...

    • 2mo

      @TripleAce you're right. I think the next steep is removing all external ports and having the device charge like a electric toothbrush. Maybe head phones using inductive transfer of the sound signal to the headphones? Who knows.

  • The lack of a headphone jack would deter me from buying one... and I am a loyal Apple user.
