7 Problems in iPhone 7, You Should Know Before Buying

There is no doubt, that apple is best brands for smartphones. Phone comes with a powerful processor, amazing RAM management, superb camera etc. But Apple is not focusing on few points which are very important for users. Today I’m writing about few important points which were expected as improvement from iPhone 6 to iPhone 7. Every time apple came with a special feature, which was not available in other phones but this time apple copied features form other phones. Lighting audio port, CDLA headset, OIS, dual-camera etc. are the features already being introduced by other brands, hence nothing is new for a user’s.

LED Notification Light:

iPhone does not come with LED notification light. In today’s smart world, every Android smartphone starting from 6K or 7K features LED notification, which starts blinking, when you receives notification. In apple you need to turn on screen every time to cheque that notifications are there or not. Also lot of flagship phones are coming with multi-colour LED and you can set it for different kind of notification. LG G5 has a special feature “always on display”, hence you can read you notifications without turning on display.

Extra Bezels:

Phone has extra bezels on display, as there is no need of that, which results in screen to body ratio of iPhone 7 is approx. 65% and iPhone 7 Plus is approx. 67 percent. On the other hand Samsung S7 and S7 edge comes with screen to body ratio of approx. 72%, LG G5 comes with body to screen ratio of approx. 70%, Le 2 Pro has approx. 75% screen to body ration. Hence the size of iPhone 7 becomes bulky with small display and creates problem in on hand operation. Lot of flagship phones are coming with one hand mode, which help you in operating phone with single hand.


Selfie Camera Angle:

No doubt camera of apple is amazing, but it does not have wide angle. If we compare it with other flagship phones than angle of selfie camera is not that great. Hence in taking a group selfie, you might face issue. You can simply see in image below. Obviously camera of flagship phone like LG, Samsung, HTC, Sony are also very good but they also comes with wide angle so that you can click group sefies easily.


No fast Charging/Charging time:

Almost all flagship phone are coming with support of fast charging, nut there is no fast charging option in iPhone 7. It comes with a battery of 2900 mAh, which takes around 2 hours to 2 hours 30 minutes. On the other hand, other flagship phones are coming with latest fast charging technologies, which results in charging a phone in 1 hour 30 minutes. I don’t when iPhone will introduce fast charging. Also there is no wireless charging option in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.


Display of iPhone 7 is impressive, which is LED-backlit IPS full-HD display with 1080×1920 pixels resolution. But you can’t compare it with display of Samsung S7, which is super AMOLED 2K display with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. 2K display is not a new concept, as it was introduced by LG in G3 and now comes with almost every flagship phone. I was expecting a better display in iPhones but this is also a bigger disappointment from apple.

No 3.5mm Audio Jack:

It has lot of advantages as well as disadvantages. Apple says that 3.5 mm jack is an old technology, also removing it helps in making phone water proof. Obviously sound quality with lighting port is much better. But accessories are expensive. If you have headphone with 3.5 mm audio jack than you need to put an adaptor, which does not looks like premium, i mean using apple with adopter is not perfect. If a person can afford iPhone 7 or 7 Plus that, he/she can also buy accessories.

No Expandable Storage:

In iPhone 7, you will get 3 different variants based on storage i.e. 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB, but there is no SD card slot for further expanding storage. In every flagship phone you will get a SD card slot to expand storage, it could be a dedicated slot or a hybrid SIM slot to put SD card. This could be a major problem for users. You can purchase an OTG, which is also not a good concept as you need to carry that OTG in addition.
