"Apple iPhone 7 - Good phone but bad value for money"

The new iPhone 7 is certainly a well built, smooth, clean phone but it may not be what you are looking for depending on the kind of phone you are looking for:

Build Quality:
Firstly i'd just like to say that the build quality (Look and feel) is fantastic, despite not being the very best i've ever had the phone certainly does feel solid. The phone is also water proof to a certain degree without sacrificing much quality. Despite the good build quality I would DEFINITELY not want to drop this phone unprotected, it feels firm but delicate and you may want to invest in a case protector if you choose to buy the new iPhone.

Battery Life:
Something that is always important to consider is battery life and the iPhone 7 certainly does not fall flat. Due to the high spec rate the iPhone 7 clearly cannot have the best battery life however the battery life it does have is well above average and unless you're looking for something to use days on end it will serve you well.

The specs are surprisingly average for the price of the phone. The average phone user will run into no issues with the video memory but someone who tends to overuse their phone may see a drop in quality with a mere 2GB of ram to a hefty £600 price tag.

If you are an audiophile I highly recommend avoiding this phone. The removal of the standard auxiliary port renders most high quality earphones and headphones completely useless. In order to use headphones you would need a converter which will lower your sound quality. If this doesn't bother you much you may get by just fine.

Video Quality:
The screen and video quality is superb for anyone not used to the new 4K ultra HD market and will be pretty standard for those who are. The quality to me clearly shows where some of that £600 went to.

Operating System:
The OS is the same as it has always been with only a few minor tweeks in the latest updates. Personally I dislike this OS as it feels too oversimple and stale but if you're an apple fan who doesn't want to see much change this will suit you well.

Value for money:
If you are the kind of person who like value for their money then you may want to look somewhere else. As this very expensive phone starting around £600 to me really did not feel completely worth the money. With the 2GB of RAM and the only average lifespan of the battery I do feel like some of my money was stolen. That being said if you are the type to splash out this phone may suit you well.
