Apple launched two of its newest flagship phones, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, during the live stream event on Sept. 7. While 7 might be the lucky number of the company, it is also possible that it wins the competition against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7.
The loyal fanbase has been long expecting the crown jewel device ever since the rumors surfaced online. Needless to say, most of the features that readers anticipated are in the smartphone.
Before digging deeper into the assessment, here are the highlights of iPhone 7, according to USA Today. First of all, Apple has proven that there will be no more headphone jacks on the new savvy device.
Instead of sticking to the old school way of enjoying music, the Cupertino-based company invented a new device called AirPods. This pair of innovative headphones is run by the power of Bluetooth, just like what the speculations suggested.
However, it comes with a separate price. Those who want to purchase the AirPods will get it for $159 (207.88 AUD).
Despite that, the latest model is an impressive improvement over its predecessor. The new features include a faster A10 Fusion processor and IP67 water resistance. It can also store memory up to 32GB.
As for the camera, it sports a 12-megapixel camera with an f/1.8 maximum aperture and 7-megapixel selfie camera. Furthermore, the new device now has stereo speakers that should be a lot louder than before.
Now, let us go to Apple’s advantage over Samsung Galaxy Note 7. According to the website, the latter may have the point when it comes to its stylus.
The reason for that is it allows the users to scribble using the Note 7. On the other hand, the South Korean company is currently facing battery issues, so Apple might be taking this opportunity.
The Verge reported recently that Federal Aviation Administration does not recommend bringing the Galaxy Note 7 to planes.
