iPhone 7 Plus (32GB)


Unveiled along with the classic version in September 2016, the iPhone 7 Plus is the third phablet of Apple. Mixing between the iPhone 7 (for the technical platform part) and the iPhone 6S Plus (for the design), this great mobile also relies on its own strengths to seduce and justify an extra cost of 140 euros with its small brother. What are they?

First a large 5.5 inch Full HD screen, for a resolution of 401 pixels per inch. This is actually the same resolution as the year before, but the screen has the same improvements as the iPhone 7 in terms of brightness and contrast.

A phablet to seduce photographers

Second argument: the iPhone 7 Plus has a larger battery. It would be 2900 mAh and it would offer, with optimizations on iOS, 2 hours of additional autonomy vis-à-vis the iPhone 6S Plus. The phablet also has 3 GB of RAM, with 2 GB for the classic version. This surplus would be particularly useful for the last asset of the phablet, and an exclusive in all the Apple catalog: a double photosensor.

Both sensors offer the same resolution (12 megapixels), but the two lenses are radically different. One is wide-angle and opens at f / 1.8. The other is a telephoto lens and opens at f / 2.8. Two advantages to this: the ability to create real background blur and the arrival of a 2x optical zoom. The sensor is stabilized, as on previous phablets. The flash is a quad LED. And the focus is phase detection (Focus Pixel technology). The set is protected by synthetic sapphire. At the front, the webcam is the new 7-megapixel Full HD Facetime camera.

A10 Fusion Chipset, Dual Speaker, and Capacitive Touch ID

For the rest, the iPhone 7 Plus relies on the platform and connectivity of the classic iPhone 7. So we find the Apple A10 Fusion chipset, a dual dual-core that distributes the workload according to the principle big.LITTLE as Snapdragon 820 Qualcomm. The built-in modem on the iPhone 7 Plus is LTE Category 9 compatible, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC, VoLTE, WiFi ac dual band MiMo. The smartphone is obviously equipped with two speakers of the iPhone and the new button Touch ID, not mechanical, but touch. It is 3D Touch compatible (like the screen) to create multiple levels of interaction.

The smartphone is animated by iOS 10, of course. Its chassis, which looks so much like that of the iPhone 6S Plus is IPX7 certified against shallow baths. The 3.5 mm jack is not present. Its role is supported by the Lightning port (an adapter is offered in the box). It measures 7.3 mm thick. It weighs 188 grams. It comes in five colors (black, glossy black, silver, gold and rose gold) and three storage options: 32, 128 or 256 GB. Count 110 euros to go from one level to the next.
