The 4.7 – and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 and 7 Plus many advantages over the 4-inch iPhone in the SE part of the functionality. Performance, higher quality display, camera. However, some users prefer smartphones with small screen sizes, which are easy to use with one hand and which can easily fit in a pocket.
After three months of use, the iPhone 7 Plus browser iMore Lori Jill told whether iPhone owners SE go to a 5.5-inch flagship Apple.
The advantages of iPhone 7 Plus
The users of 4-inch smartphones will be difficult to get used to the big screen. What motivates you to go to the main smartphone of 2016? First and foremost, the camera.
iPhone 7 Plus got a module with two lenses. The usual wide-angle camera has a resolution of 12 megapixels and an aperture of f/1.8, and the second telescopic 12-megapixel, but with an aperture of f/2.8. With this design, iPhone 7 Plus lets you take pictures with two-times zoom without loss of quality. Also, the smartphone is a portrait shooting mode, allowing you to take photos with a bokeh effect, just like on professional SLR cameras.
Among other advantages the iPhone 7 Plus – display with wide color gamut (DCI-P3), stereo speakers, processor, Apple’s A10 Fusion. But the truth is, users are primarily interested in the camera and it makes you wonder about buying a “large” model.
Daily use of iPhone 7 Plus
In short, it’s a pain. If you use the device in landscape mode with two hands, there is no problem. But let’s be honest – who use a smartphone this way? During correspondence or e-mail the hand’s tired, and use the gadget without the help of the second hand is simply impossible.
The games also have to hold the iPhone with one hand and the second support. In most cases, after 10 minutes of the game to keep the device becomes uncomfortable due to the sharp edges of the Lightning port. The same problem applies to the little finger of the right hand in normal use of the device.
Someone’s problem may seem far-fetched, but it really delivers serious inconvenience.
Is it worth to sacrifice convenience?
If you like the 4-inch iPhone, but want to upgrade to the iPhone 7 Plus just for the camera and new hardware, you should first think, why are you still using a compact smartphone. If the answer is – because a 5.5-inch devices are too big for you, you should still remain with a 4-inch device, or at least go to the 4.7-inch iPhone. To get used to the dimensions of the iPhone 7 Plus and very difficult to use at first, the smartphone is almost impossible, as to carry. Big screen, vivid color and perfect performance – it’s all there for 9.7 inch iPad Pro, which, incidentally, is about the same level of portability that the iPhone 7 Plus.
If the issue is convenience, and you’re not particularly worried about the diagonal, then we can think about such upgrade. Of course, the fact that the iPhone 7 Plus will hardly fit into a pocket, frustrating, but it can’t be the only reason you are using a 4-inch smartphone. If you are willing to put up with the size of the phone, you can buy a bigger bag or even to carry the device in your hands.
If the problem is the price, you should look at the iPhone 6s Plus. He has a lot of advantages over the iPhone SE – 3D Touch screen, more memory, 5-megapixel front camera. Is last year’s flagship 11 000 rubles cheaper “sevens”, and it’s still one of the most powerful smartphones on the market.
Despite the better camera, the excellent screen, new Home button and a record production of iPhone 7 Plus, Laurie preferred the iPhone SE simply because a 5.5-inch gadget difficult to use. Portability and the ability to carry the phone in your pocket or bag turned out to be more important than the camera and the top of the processor.
However, the experience of using Lori Jill may differ from yours. Before buying a new iPhone think about why you are using a compact smartphone. It may be that 5.5 inch screen – just what you need, and it is worth the inconvenience it brings.
