Design

The iPhone 7’s design is very similar to the iPhone 6 apart from a few changes. The antenna strip has been removed on the new iPhone. The headphone jack has also been removed, this was a big concern for many consumers. The new iPhone is also water resistant, not waterproof. Colours available for the iPhone include: jet black, white, gold, rose gold

Display

Iphone 7 has the same Retina HD display and the 4.7 inch size, this results in a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels with a pixel density of 326 ppi. Apple claim that the screen can be up to 25% brighter than the iPhone 6. P3 colour gamet is a another new feature on the iPhone 7, a richer colour is the result. The Samsung s7 edge screen technology makes the iPhone’s technology look outdated, the Samsung s7 edge provides a AMOLED 2560×1440 pixels  577 ppi.

Camera

Apple have improved the camera quality from 8 MP to 12 MP, and also added the addition of optical image stabilisation which reduces blur as a result of hand shaking, Quad-LED and True tone flash which is 50% brighter than the iPhone. The front facing camera has been improved from 1MP to 7Mp, which is outstanding.

Conclusion

My opinion of the new release, is that Apple were brave with some of their improvements, for example the removal of the headphone jack, I think that wireless technology is only going to increase as time goes on. By apple introducing it, other companies will be inclined to do the same, but you could look at it as a profitable action. The removal of the headphone jack, could be trying to get more consumers to buy apples own wireless headphone, at a price of £122. I think the Samsung technology is on a different level, but the reason I don’t think that the Samsung s7 edge hasn’t had as many sales as the iPhone 7 is due to marketing and the branding of Apple. I think that the iPhone 7 wasn’t as of a success as the iPhone 6 because the queues for the iPhone 7 was dramatically lower that the release of the iPhone 6.
