iPhone 7 updated review

Introduction, design and screen Let’s get right down to it: if Apple had launched the iPhone 7 in place of the iPhone 6S last year, it would probably have been the phone of the year.

One of the new things about the just-unveiled iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is the Jet Black color version, never before seen on an Apple mobile device.

What’s new with the iPhone 7? Either a lot and very little, depending on what matters to you in a phone. On the one hand, it’s now imbued with far superior sonic performance, a much better camera and a more pleasant-to-use screen – and now has no port to plug your headphones into. On the other hand, barring some slippage of the antenna bands on the rear of the phone, this looks remarkably similar to

iPhone SE: Updated

Introduction: a new / old era for Apple There’s a part of me that doesn’t understand why Apple gets the amount of interest it does with something like the iPhone SE. It’s a phone that’s in an identical chassis to the one released three years ago, and beyond a new color it’s impossible to know which model is which. It’s the iPhone ‘Special Edition’. Then I look around the train carriage on the way to work and count

Apple iPhone SE: Time-saver edition

Apple iPhone SE: Time-saver edition

  IntroductionThe iPhone SE is a perfect fit for a time-saver review, it seems, as Apple didn’t come up with a new design or new internals. Instead, the innards come from an iPhone 6s, while the design is a direct copy of the iPhone 5s. While on paper this sounds like a great combination, it’s not exactly breaking news, is it?One way to interpret this move is to conclude Apple is taking the easy road and is merely recycling an existing chassis design to produce a lower-cost iPhone without hurting margins. Another possible interpretation is that they are reviving the iconic iPhone…

Some modders at ComputerBild decided that the iPhone SE was stuck in a body much too old to be sold as a new phone. We don’t blame them, the iPhone 5 was introduced in fall of 2012 so its about 3 and a half years old. These modders decided to buy an aftermarket housing for an iPhone 5(S) from AliExpress that you can use to effectively replace the iPhone SEs outdated exterior. The new housing they chose features the iPhone 6(S)s curvier
