Water-Resistance, display and colour options.
Both the variants are water-resistant but neither of them features a headphone jack so, you’d need to use wireless earphones or earbuds. Although criticized by some, this allows a larger range of movement and hassle-free connection.
In regards to display, the iPhone 7 is equipped with a 4.7-inch and the 7 Plus, on the other hand, comes with a 5.5-inch display. Both offer accurate colours and good viewing angles.
As for colour options, both models are available in the following attractive colours options; Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, Black, and Jet Black
Both run Apple’s A10 Fusion chipset which is reputed to be a powerful chipset.
When they were first introduced, the A10 chip was the fastest mobile chipset ever created. Even today, it is yet very impressive and will easily keep pace with even the most powerful offering from Qualcomm.
Both phones provide silky-smooth performance and a great user experience. Intensive use like video editing, photo editing etc. can be performed on this device with zero lag. In addition to this, these are power efficient and easily last a day.
Both of them have the same internal so, the performance is on par.
In comparison to the previous iPhone 6 lineup, Apple has shown huge promising features in them. Low-light performance is significantly improved, owing to the iPhone 7’s wider f.1/1.8 aperture lens that lets in more light for extra details. In addition to this, both the feature Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for enhanced exposure. Another benefit of OIS is that it greatly minimizes the effect of hands shaking while taking pictures and videos. The telephoto lens featured is great for capturing landscapes or any large scenes.
