If you’ve been paying attention in the smartphone world lately, you’re probably aware that Apple just recently announced the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The lovely folks at TabTimes have been really busy lately, going hands-on with the new phones, comparing the new color options, dunking them in water, and yes, even dropping them on the ground.
Yes, the new iPhones are an iterative upgrade over the iPhone 6s/6s Plus. Yes, the new iPhones are running iOS. That doesn’t mean they’re bad phones, though. And as an Android smartphone blog, it’s our duty to talk about all things relating to Android handsets, not just the Android handsets themselves.
Compared to the Android competition, it’s easy to think that the latest iPhones just don’t compare on the spec sheet. Both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have lower screen resolutions than most flagship Android phones, their batteries are quite a bit smaller, and many argue that Apple drags its feet when it comes to introducing new (and unique) features to iOS. Still, there’s a lot to like about these phones. Although the megapixel count isn’t as high as other flagships, the cameras on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are really good. Also, Apple’s new A10 Fusion chipset seems to be quite a bit faster than last year’s processor, and the company also gave the new phones an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance.
