The below are the main reasons for buying iPhone 7:
- More Affordable than iPhone 8
The most important reason is the cost that is more relative to the other new iPhones. With the latest update, iPhone 8 is available for $599 and iPhone 8 Plus is available for $699. But iPhone 7, 7 Plus are available at $449 and $569 respectively. However, when compared with the latest versions of iPhone they range more than $1000, which is costly.
iPhone 7 is nearly half the price of iPhone X and in the refurbished store the price shall vary (lowers than usual). Still considering, iPhone 7 is reasonable and is effective in terms of cost. There is an option to buy iPhone via EMI depending upon the flexibility of money.
- Improved Battery Life
With the introduction to Taptic Engine which reflects 3D Touch, the battery life has been dropped in iPhone 6, 6S. Accessing of headphone jack consumed more battery adding a 14% space upon the size 1955 mAh.
But merely claiming the results of iPhone 6,6S, there has been an improvement in the iPhone 7 model with 4.7 inches and A10 Fusion Chip. This improvement has increased efficiency by helping the phone save more power. However, there are some concerns against the previous versions that are modified in the latest ones. There are many manufacturing changes in updating the versions, so it is better to compare models before purchasing.
- Resistant to Smudges
In the latest version, iPhone 8 and X, the support of QI charging has become a headache and resulted in side effects like smudging and susceptible glass backs and fingerprints on the screen.
Meanwhile, iPhone 7 has metal backs that are resistant to fingerprints and smudges. When compared with glass backs, metal backs are more repellant. It protects the device from overheating as well.
- Size Flexibility
The iPhone X doesn’t come in different sizes. But iPhone 7 offers two different sizes. iPhone 7 has a 4.7-inch display and iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5-inch display. Both are convenient to handle while iPhone X is sized with a 5.8-inch display, which becomes bigger in small hands.
As seen with the new editions, the size is variable depending upon the features it provides. While we are not suggesting an optimal size, you should opt for the one that is comfortable to carry.
- No Notch
Notch is not intrusive while using applications. Many nuisances occured during video watching resulting in disturbances. When expanding to full-screen the notch in the iPhone cuts off the bottom and top of the video.
But technically, in the iPhone 7, the notch is disabled, which means it is not applied. So, there is no worry when watching videos simultaneously in different applications.
- Touch ID
Both iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have perfect Touch ID recognition, which helps to unlock the screen and make App Store purchases. For signing into any application, Touch ID is required and is fast and reliable.
Practically, iPhone X has Face ID recognition, but it is not as fast as Touch ID. The sensor responds very slowly but it is more secure. The manual options for passcode are also enabled in every version of iPhone.
Purchasing a smartphone these days can be quite confusing. But then many advertisements and reviews mention relative capabilities of each and every version. The only thing to concentrate on is to compare and test models according to their convenience and usage.
Because of the benefits and reasons mentioned above, iPhone 7 has been purchased by most business people and is relatively adapted to enhance its features comfortably. Try out other specifications in iPhone 7 and purchase it soon.
