So 2016 is midway through just a few months to go before we head into a new year.What are a few things that 2016 showed us? Well apart from the usual political hype surrounding the world and elections’ booming here and there a very much awaited iPhone 7 plus was looked forward to in the technology world. iPhone lovers everywhere are sitting on the edge waiting to get their early Christmas gift, but the question is how much did they upgrade it from the previous iPhone classics? Are the differences worth the while to upgrade to the new iPhone 7 plus? Today I am going to show you 10 Differences Between iPhone 6S Plus & iPhone 7 Plus the decision is then all yours.
10. Weight: Looking at its display the iPhone 7 plus has made minor tweaks here and there. Some of the features remain exactly the same like the dimensions of the iPhone 7 plus are the same as the iPhone 6S plus. However one of the things that one may look forward to or not depending on what you like is that the new iPhone 7 plus is heavier in weight as compared to the iPhone 6S plus. The iPhone 6S plus weighs in at 172 g whereas the iPhone 7 plus weighs in at a whopping 16 grams heavier 188 g. This can be a good upgrade if you like a heavier built adding to a sturdier look.
Now I know that all those technological upgrades do count for all those techno whizzes out there however for those who like to get their vogue on trying out different colors the iphone 6s plus lacked that pizzazz because it was available in silver, space grey, and gold, however the iPhone 7 plus has introduced two new colors including black with matte effect and jet black with a glossy finish to make it even more stylish and add that extra bit of oomph.
8.1 Home Button: The iPhone 6s plus although with its stylish display had a physical home button making it a bit hard for touch lovers to get use to hard handling the home button but with the new iPhone 7 plus Apple took it to the next level by exchanging the physical home button with a capacitive home button make it more easier and friendlier to use I mean really friendly thanks to the genius Taptic Engine technology. the capacitive button is able to mimic the feeling of being touched so you barely have to press it or put any effort after a long hard day to enjoy your phone.
8.2 Sensor: let’s talk sensors baby! The iPhone 6s plus has a second generation touch id sensor which claims to be faster than the rest of the sensors but what this now I hear? The iPhone 7 plus has a second generation touch id sensor that is even faster than the one in iPhone 6s plus. Now for all those folks who are like what does that even mean? It basically means that the new iPhone 7 plus is more secure this way because a faster touch id sensor means that the faster you can get into your phone and can be sure that no one but you gets inside your phone.( unless they have the same fingerprint as you which would be really creepy!)
7. Brightness: it’s the small things that make a difference right? So how about the brightness? “Star night star bright make my phone as bright as the sunlight”? Maybe that’s what someone was wishing for and it indeed came true as the new iphone 7 plus is an enormous 25% brighter than the iPhone 6s Plus. So no more squinting your eyes (especially all you glasses folk) just go ahead and adjust to the brightness you want.
So we talked aesthetics but how about what goes on inside? Apple went big on this one if you were impressed by iPhone’s’ performance in the past well then sit back and hold tight because you’re in for the ride with iPhone 7 plus A10 fusion chip. This chip has allowed the phone to work up to 3 times faster than the A8 chip found inside the iPhone 6s plus, whereas the chip found inside the 6s plus was dual core 7s plus has turned it up a couple of notches with a quad core chip both with two low power chips and two high power chips. So gamers can get their game one all day long with this kind of speed.
This is what you can do with the iPhone 7 plus. Click! Click! And more clicks the phone has definitely upgraded its camera for the better. Packed with colossal 12mp rear end shooter and dual lens technology as compared to the 6s plus 8mp camera the iPhone 7 plus camera has an added element of a 6-element f/1.8 aperture vs. the 6s plus f/2.2 aperture, this allows the 7 plus to absorb up to 50 % more light allowing for more beautiful pictures. Another added benefit of the camera is that the upgraded version in the 7 plus provides for an optical zoom of up to 10 times. Now this is something that the previous 6s plus lacked completely. Not only is the camera better but get this even the video quality has been enhanced providing videos in 4k resolution as compared to 6s plus video recorder limited to full HD resolution at 60fps.
4. Battery Life
With all the features that the iPhone has to provide one has to think about whether it can take it out or does it wear it out in terms of the battery and the 7 plus does indeed take it out, up and above claiming to provide for the best battery life in the history of iPhone’, however realistically speaking it will give you one more extra hour of battery life as compared to the 6s plus, but hey who knows maybe the one extra hour does count depending on how and who is using it.
3.Water And Dust Resistant
Certainly a very distinct feature of the iPhone 7 plus is that it is water resistant yes you heard me right you can throw it in the water (or even swim with dolphins). The standard IP67 certification and rating ensures that phone can be submerged in the water for up to 30 minutes without any damage done. The IP rating also provides for a dust proof integrity of the 7 plus ensuring that it is dust-proof. There is no IP rating for the 6s plus.
Apple has undoubtedly refined the space in the iPhone 7 plus starting with a base storage of 32GB and raising it up to a 128GB variant and it doesn’t stop there the iPhone 7 plus is also offered in 256GB storage whereas the iPhone 6s plus stops at 128GB. So if you’re one of those people who do not like deleting their pictures then this may be the phone for you.
Music lovers beware this may just be the phone for you, tired of all those wires getting tangled up and in your way well iPhone 7 plus just came up with a solution for it , a major upgrade from the iPhone 6s plus. It simply said goodbye to the 3.5-millimeter audio jack. Now this may be a controversy or it may be a blessing however in any case the iPhone 7 plus uses air pods which to say are quite expensive if you get a pair of them lost however if you can handle it then no worries music will be delivered to your ears through lightning connector or over Bluetooth.
