Most reviewers weren't too fond of its overall design. Both TechRadar and The Wall Street Journal said that the iPhone 7 looks too similar to its predecessor, the iPhone 6. The only noticeable differences are the placement of the camera (not to mention the dual camera of the iPhone 7 Plus) and the missing headphone jack, which raised a lot of eyebrows.
The best thing Apple did to its new iPhone lineup is making it waterproof and installing dual camera lens.
The negative reviews mostly centered on the scrapping of the headphone jack and we can see why. It's difficult enough to untangle a wired set. Now that Apple is paving the way for wireless earphones, called the "AirPod," the number one concern of everyone is misplacing them. Why not just replace it? Well, a pair is worth $159 or P7,455 so a substitute will leave you broke.
Experts gave the battery power a thumbs up, which, if true, this means that the iPhone 7 will get two extra hours of battery life versus the iPhone 6S.
Other than that, experts think the iPhone 7 isn't that much of a deal. Like any of its predecessors, it has its pros and cons, but will most likely survive.
Apple assures everyone this new lineup is an innovation of the previous one and that it has something to offer that other devices can't. We have yet to see it, though; the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are set to be released in the market on September 16.
