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.
