iPhone 7 v/s iPhone 7 Plus: Which should you pre-order?


The iPhone series have always been the kings of the markets because of their sleek designs, unique and out of the world features and of course, their prices.Yet, they are the most awaited ones too and owning an iPhone has become quite the status symbol in recent times.This September too, Apple launched the next models in the series, the iPhone 7 and its elder brother, the iPhone 7 plus. With all the amazing features of their predecessors, their upgrades and many new ones, these masterpieces can no longer be called mere mobile phones.

Both the iPhones have their pros and cons, and it is difficult to clearly declare the best between the two. It will solely depend on the views and needs of the customer, but all we can do isdraw out a comparison between the two and make the arduous task a tad easier for the buyer.So, let’s weigh both of these phones’ features against each other to find out which one of them you should pre-order according to your needs before their stocks run out.

  1. Size and Design:

Though both models have an aluminium body and are available in various colours (like black, gold, rose gold and silver), the two are easily distinguishable by their size and weight itself; iPhone 7 weighs 138gm and has a 4.7” screen whereas iPhone 7 Plus weighs 188gm with a 5.5” screen.Hence, iPhone 7 Plus is best for people who want big screens for playing games, watching movies and videos, etc. But if you don’t want to carry around a bulkier piece with you, go for iPhone 7.

  1. Display:

For a Full HD experience, opt for iPhone 7 plus only, because iPhone 7 simply gives you a 1334×750 pixel resolution. Though both of them offer Retina HD display, Display Zoom, a coating to resist fingerprints, reachability function and 3D touch (the icing on the cake!), it is iPhone 7 Plus which gives you the sharper images.

  1. Camera:

This is the field where iPhones has outfoxed every smartphone company. Both the phones give you optical image stabilization, face and smile recognition and a new Quad-LED True Tone Flash but the true difference lies in the number of lenses they have; iPhone 7Plus has a two 12 MP back cameras (f/1.8 aperture wide angle lens and f/2.8 telephoto lens) while iPhone 7 has only one (f/1.8).So, if you are looking for A-grade pictures to share on social media, an iPhone 7 plus is all you need.

  1. Battery Life:

Guess which one will have a longer battery life? But of course, the larger one! Plus has a battery life of up to 21 hours which is much longer compared to the other one (iPhone 7 has a 14-hour long battery life).

  1. Memory and Processors:

Both phones are available in three memory capacities, that is, 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB and both use the Quad-core Apple A-10 Fusion processors and the 10.1 version of iOS.
