Apple iPhone 7 doesn’t need any special introduction. If you’re into smartphones, you know what we are talking about. But, isn’t Apple iPhone 7 a little overrated? Well, unlike its brother Apple iPhone 7 Plus, this one isn’t overpriced, and both smartphones work well. The hardware is great here, boasting a Quad-core 2.34 GHz (2x Hurricane + 2x Zephyr) CPU and PowerVR Series7XT Plus (six-core graphics) GPU. The 2 GB of RAM is, in theory, a minimum, but iPhone 7 works unbelievably fast with these specs. A 4.7″ display with a somewhat HD resolution isn’t going to blow your mind, but it’s good.
What IS going to blow your mind is that there isn’t microSD slot nor 3.5mm jack. If you decide for 32 GB version this may be a downside, but there are 128 GB and 256 GB version of this smartphone, so we can choose. A 12 MP camera here is solid, but the battery is under 2000 mAh and is little lackluster.

I know that Apple smartphones are generaly expensive, but i don't think there is a price that could match this quality. I bought it a few weeks ago and haven't noticed a single hitch in performance. Its 12 MP camera also blew me away with its possibilities. Definetely recommended!
I always been an iPhone guy. So, as usual, Apple didn't disappoint me with their new flagship smartphone, the iPhone 7. A great device from a great company. Always loves Apple and will continue supporting iPhones. iPhones are love. Haters stay away.
