|Home button||Pressure-sensitive button||Physical button|
|Rear camera||Dual camera||Single camera|
|Storage capacity||32, 128, or 256GB||32 or 128GB|
First of all, the design. Weighing in at 188g, the iPhone 7 Plus is slightly lighter than the iPhone 6s Plus, despite having a larger rear camera. To me, the dual camera is undoubtedly the big difference between these two devices, but more on that later. What else do I notice? The iPhone 7 Plus no longer comes in Space Gray. You can now choose either matte or glossy black. The antenna lines in the Phone 6s Plus run horizontal, while the iPhone 7 Plus antenna lines run on the top and bottom of the phone. A change that can't be seen is the fact that the iPhone 7 Plus is waterproof.
I'm an active multimedia user. That means I need a phone with sufficient storage capacity. The iPhone 6s Plus offered me a choice between 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB. With the introduction of the iPhone 7, Apple has changed this to 32GB and 128GB. The iPhone 7 Plus is available with 3 different storage capacities; 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Keep in mind that the 32GB storage capacity version doesn't come in Jet Black.
I think the iPhone 7 Plus is a definite improvement compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 6s Plus. The introduction of the dual camera is one I welcome with open arms. After all, it changes a lot in terms of functions as well as photo quality. After a week of getting used to it, I found the new home button a good change too. Let's not forget the waterproof casing either. Now I can answer my phone when it's raining without worrying about water damage.
