RATING
Based on 41 reviews

As the big brother to Apple’s new iPhone 7, the 7 Plus takes the iPhone series into phablet territory. With the launch out of the way, reviews are rolling in.

But which one should you pick? Let’s see what reviewers are saying!

The iPhone 7 Plus shares many traits with it’s smaller sibling. However, the differences made a huge impression on most reviewers.

The biggest change is the dual rear camera setup. While the 7 Plus includes the same 12MP wide-angle lens as the 7, it also includes a second telephoto lens. This effectively allows you to enjoy 2x zoom without any of the quality loss or noise of digital zoom. Apple also plans to release updates to allow photo effects, such as bokeh, using both lenses at the same time. Many reviewers noted that this made the extra cost of the Plus worthwhile.

The phone also sees upgrades to screen size and resolution. The 1080p 5.5-inch Retina HD display was well received by reviewers. Though the increased size of the phone proved difficult for one-handed use.

Lastly, you’ll find a slightly larger battery on the 7 Plus. However, paired with a larger, higher resolution display, reviews were on the fence on how much the larger cell improved battery life overall.

Everything else about the phone is identical to the iPhone 7--including the lack of headphone port. For more information, check out our summary!

What Hi-Fi

The Plus range has finally grown into its own

from What Hi-Fi

So, is the iPhone 7 Plus the iPhone to buy right now? If you can deal with the size of the phone – not to mention the price tag – it certainly betters its smaller sibling in almost every area, including screen, sound, battery life and camera. It doesn’t chase the specs of its rival flagships, but instead chooses to hone what it has and make them even better than before. It’s a risky move in an industry of “what’s next”, but one you have to applaud when it produces results like this.

Recombu

Impressive power, stunning screen

from Recombu

If you’re sold on iOS and you want a spacious screen for enjoying media on the move, the iPhone 7 Plus is undeniably excellent. Of course, if you have the iPhone 6 Plus or 6s Plus, upgrading to the iPhone 7 is a difficult recommendation. The camera experience is improved, but not by a serious amount - after all, those earlier iPhones had great cameras too. And while the boost in performance and water resistance are nice to have, they’re not an essential upgrade.

The best iPhone yet

Apple made sure it has put enough novelties to make the iPhone an attractive purchase and a worthy upgrade. The lines of people and the depleted stock prove that. People are buying the Plus model, lots of people are opting for the new iPhone upgrade program, too. The Apple iPhone 7 Plus is a best-seller from its very first day. Today, a few months after its launch, the phone is still on back-order, so Apple surely has got something right. Our tests proved it's not just marketing that's driving these sales, but the company's marketing prowess is undeniable.

Digital Photography Review

Definitely a step in the right direction and a lot of fun to use

from Digital Photography Review

The Apple iPhone 7 Plus can't quite keep up with the best in terms of pixel-level detail but otherwise delivers very good image quality all-around. Its unique selling point is its dual-camera with a 56mm 'tele-lens.' It allows for the best zooming of all current smartphones, offers an alternative angle of view to the wide-angle and works well in Apple's new portrait mode. There is room for improvement as far as the dual-camera's low-light performance is concerned, but overall the system is a true step forward for mobile photography.

Beautiful screen, unique camera, class-leading performance

from TrustedReviews

It’s not revolutionary, but the iPhone 7 Plus is great phone. You get a lot for your money compared to the iPhone 7, though. For £120 more the 7 Plus provides a luscious 5.5-inch screen and a clever camera – but, most importantly, battery life you can rely on.

Tech Advisor

Better cameras and waterproofing make this the best iPhone yet

from Tech Advisor

The iPhone 7 Plus is an excellent phone. It’s Apple’s best yet, but it is also Apple’s most expensive yet, with a huge starting price. In some respects, the upgrades seem to justify this, but at the same time some features are arguably only catching up with what the competition has been offering for a while now – water-resistance for one. Taken as a whole, the performance, battery life, camera quality and stereo speakers are all compelling reasons to upgrade. But our advice remains much the same as for the iPhone 7: if you already own the previous generation, there’s not enough here to justify ditching a 6S Plus, especially if you’re halfway through a two-year contract. Those just coming out of contract on the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus would do well to grab a 7 Plus.

Know Your Mobile

Bigger and vastly superior

from Know Your Mobile

If you're not concerned with size, then the iPhone 7 Plus is arguably a much better choice than the standard model. It has a roomier screen, better camera setup, improved stamina and an extra gigabyte of RAM - all of which adds up to a superior phone. However, it's also more expensive and is larger than many other 5.5-inch Android phones thanks to those large bezels around the screen, so it's not an entirely perfect offering by any means.

A phone without equal

The iPhone 7 Plus is one of the best smartphones we've ever tested. It's up to you to decide whether or not it's worth the severe pain point of not having a headphone jack.
