Our Verdict

  • Superb camera with impressive low light performance
  • Water-resistant exterior gives real peace of mind if you're accident-prone
  • Add a super-sharp screen and long-life battery and there's a lot to like about the iPhone 7
  • Disappointing it's the same design as iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s
  • Lack of standard 3.5mm headphone slot is a bit annoying and means you need to use the adaptor supplied
  • There's no fast charge mode for the battery
