The phones that are released today are always new and improved and are always competing for the top spot. Everyone wants to be the best and many people forget about older phones. They can be just as good as new phones if not better. The iPhone 7 is a great phone that is still usable today. Today I will be helping you decide if the iPhone 7 is something that you might want to buy for yourself! It is available at a cheap and affordable price making it great for people on a low budget.

It has a nice design and a fresh look and feel with clear display that is easy to see. The phone is easy to navigate and it is not over cluttered. It is fast and reliable and performs all tasks quickly and easily. The iPhone 7 supports 3G and 4G networks which is easily enabled by an option in the settings. This means that you will not have to upgrade your phone when 3G is switched off. The phone is still used a lot today and it is still available in many different places all over the world.

Overview

The iPhone 7 is a great phone with many useful features and a nice design that looks fresh. It has a 4.7 inch Retina IPS LCD touchscreen display with a good resolution that is clear and easy to see. The phone has a 12 megapixel rear camera with a Quad LED dual tone flash and 2160p as well as 1080p HD video recording. There is also a 7 megapixel front facing camera with 1080p HD video recording and support for face detection. Both of these cameras take decent photos and videos.

The iPhone 7 is powered by ios 10.0.0 and it is upgradable to ios 13.3 which is the latest ios operating system. It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB,128GB or 256GB internal storage depending on which one you choose. The internal storage is not expandable because there is no Micro SD card slot. There is a loudspeaker but no headphone jack and there connectivity features including WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi hotspot for sharing data, GPS, NFC, compass, a fingerprint scanner and more.

The Benefits Of The iPhone 7

There are many benefits of using the iPhone 7 starting the body. The body is waterproof and dust proof which helps you not worry if you accidentally drop your phone in water. The screen is clear and easy to see with a fresh looking display that is not cluttered. The rear camera has an auto focus and takes decent photos and has 2160p as well as 1080p HD video recording. The front facing camera takes decent photos as well and has 1080p HD video recording and support for face detection.

The phone is fast and performs well and so do the apps. It has different storage options available to suit your needs and the fingerprint scanner works well. The phone supports 3G and 4G networks which is easily enabled by an option in the settings. This means that you will not have to upgrade your phone when 3G is switched off. The battery will last a full day on a single charge and even with heavy tasks the battery should last most of the day if not the full day before running out of power.

Where To Buy

The iPhone 7 is available in carriers such as Telstra, Optus and Vodafone and also in post offices, supermarkets and electronic stores. It is also available online at places like ebay, amazon and kogan. If you buy the phone online it will be cheaper and it will come unlocked which means you will avoid paying any unlocking fees and it will come ready to use with any sim card with any carrier without any problems or limitations. If you buy it in a carrier it will be locked to that network.

If you buy the phone in a post office or electronic store it will be locked to a certain carrier most of the time. The unlocking fee is around $80 and buying it online will save you this money and avoid the fee. If you buy the phone in a carrier you will have the option of buying the phone outright or putting it on a month to month plan starting from $52 per month. If you buy the phone online you will be able to put it on a bring your own phone plan which includes data and starts from $15 per month.

Is The iPhone 7 For Me?

The iPhone 7 is a great phone but it does have it`s positives and negatives just like all other smartphones. It supports 3G and 4G networks which is easily enabled by an option in the settings meaning you won’t have to upgrade your phone when 3G is switched off. The camera both take decent photos and videos and the rear camera has an auto focus. The body is waterproof and dust proof and there plenty of storage options available. The battery life lasts a full day on a single charge.

The downsides though start with the radio because there is no radio. There is no headphone jack which is annoying because a lot of users need and want one. There is no Micro SD card slot and NFC is limited to apple pay only. There is no fast charging, wireless charging or infrared port and the black model is prone to scratches. There is no dual camera which a lot of users want and the screen resolution is not as good as other competing smartphones and some user might not like it.

Conclusion

The iPhone 7 is a great smartphone all in all with a lot of great features. It supports 3G and 4G networks which is easily enabled by an option in the settings meaning you will not have to upgrade your phone when 3G is switched off. The cameras take decent photos and there is 2160p and 1080p HD video recording as well as an auto focus and support for face detection.

    Hi Tim. Nice article, I like the fact that you are reviewing an older product. Apple iPhone 7 is a great smartphone. I had iPhone 6 a year ago and I needed to switch to 7 at the time, but then it was pricey so I decided to try an android smartphone. Still, this is a decent phone with a good camera, a great choice for someone on a budget.

      Thank you for your comment Srdjan! That is cool that you used to have an iPhone 6! How did you like it? What did you think of it? The iPhone 7 used to be pricey but not anymore! You can follow my links to get one if you like! I agree with you that it is a good choice for anyone on a budget or for anyone who doesn`t want to spend a lot of money on a smartphone! Thank you again for your comment Srdjan!

    Thank you, Timothy

    I am really impressed with your article on iPhone 7, and by any chance do you know if this type of iPhone is senior-friendly? I was thinking of this as a gift for my elderly mother, but I am not sure if this would be too complicated for her to use?

      Hi Jeffery! I`m glad that you like my review! This phone can be senior friendly if it is a person who understands technology! But it can also be complicated depending on the users level of technology experience! It is easy to see and use though and your mum should definitely give it a go! Let me know if you need any further help! Thank you again for your comment Jeffery!

    Great article, I am always looking to buy an older model whenever I upgrade, because the iphones really do work so well for so long, that there is just no reason to get the latest unless you absolutely want that technology. I wish I had seen your post just before I upgraded to the iphone 8, it would have saved me some money!

    • Timothy Balla

      Thank you for your comment John! I`m glad that you liked my article! I`m glad that I helped you out! I agree with you because I don`t have the latest technology either! I always just look for something that is good and cheap! I have other posts about cheap phones as well! Check them out as well if you are interested! Thank you again for your comment John!

    Thank you for your article, I have found it very informative. I love Apple and I always had Apple products, but I’m not one of those who sleep in front of a store to buy the new model. Currently, I have an iPhone 6 in it does the job, but I would like to upgrade to the 7. Is there much difference from one model of the iPhone 7 to another? Is it just a matter GB of memory?
    Thanks for your help.
    Wish you the best,
    Andy

      Thank you for your comment Andy! I`m glad that like my review! I`m glad that I helped you! The only differences between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 is that there is a slight difference in the camera quality, there is more storage space and the iPhone 7 is a bit faster! I recommend that you upgrade if you have the money but sticking with the iPhone 6 is fine as well! Let me know if you have any further questions or if there is anything else that I can help you with! Thank you again for your comment Andy!
