iPhone 7 being the 12th generation phone made by Apple since the past ten years. Despite Apple have been the top smart phone manufacturer for a decade, still there is notable issues lie behind the consumer product. The iPhone 7′s new A10 processor is claimed to be fastest and save more battery than ever.
#1 Hissing problem
both the regular iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus producing hissing sounds when they’re subjected to a heavy processor workload, such as a game.
#2 Unresponsive home button
Just the first week of using the new iPhone, some users complaint that the home button just can’t take it home. And many users prefer the old home button in the 6S. And we believe that the hap-tic feedback is gonna consume more battery each time it vibrates.
#3 Finger prints all over on the Jet black iPhone 7
Perhaps users who chosen the latest jet black color will need a casing to protect the phone body
#4 Poor battery life
With larger battery capacity and the more efficient A10 Fusion chip, the battery life in the iPhone 7 is claimed to be longer lasting compare to its predecessor iPhone 6S, however, still many users complaint about rapid battery drain.
Go to Settings > Battery, you can turn “Low Power Mode” on to stretch your battery further, but it sacrifice functionalities such as Mail fetch, Hey Siri, background app refresh, automatic downloads, and some visual effects will be reduced or turned off completely.
#5 Lightning earpod stop working
A few users have run into an issue with the Lightning EarPods comes in the set. Sometimes the remote control buttons stop working and become unresponsive, thus preventing you from playing, pausing music. Apple has acknowledged this glitch, however, and is currently working on a software fix.
Solution: Unplug the Lightning EarPods and plug it back in again. This should bring the control functionality back, at least temporarily.
Is the iPhone 7 worth it? I still love the IP67 water resistance, 32GB storage option, cameras and more. However, the iPhone 7 is more of a fine-tuned iPhone 6s and not the next step in the iPhone life-cycle. Think evolution, not revolution.
Guideline for buying one:
1. The only way to get unlocked iPhone is to buy full price at official Apple online/ Retail store. All unlocked iPhones can now be used at anywhere in the world, regardless of supported bands.
2. To people who are buying from China or Hong Kong: Be warned that the model number for sale in Malaysia (A1778/A1784) is different from the iPhone sold there. Same goes to Japan or US iPhone too (unless you go with AT&T or T-mobile).
