Choose iPhone 7. (#UtterlyRandomThoughts)

Since there is a lot to talk about in tech, I’m starting #UtterlyRandomThoughts.
It’ll be a weekly post series that basically lets me voice out my opinion on certain tech topics.
First off,  I wanna talk about why it’s NOT wrong to choose iPhone 7.


Unless you don’t care at all, Apple releases two sizes of iPhones since 2014. Thanks to the ever-increasing demand for bigger phones, they relented and gave us the iPhone 6 Plus. Since then, Apple maintained their dominance in the smartphone market despite the competition. Last year, Apple gave a big differentiator to the bigger 7 Plus: another camera.

I recently read an article about the iPhone 7 being the wrong iPhone to buy. He mentioned the two reasons why the iPhone 7 Plus is a vastly superior phone than the iPhone 7: the screen and the camera.

 I understand that the dual-camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus gives it a significant advantage over the iPhone 7. I just can’t agree to what he says that I GOT THE WRONG iPhone.

Why Choose iPhone 7?

Here’s the thing: I choose iPhone 7 because I want the smaller phone. I don’t want a bigger screen if it means I have to carry a big phone. I KNOW, I KNOW. Bigger phones tend to have big batteries but to me, it seems like a compromise.

When was the last time you held a smaller phone? I get that bigger screens are all the rage thanks to watching a lot of videos now compared to before. Bigger phones feel uncomfortable in the hand to me though (and I have pretty bigger than average hands). I feel that the iPhone 7 feels better in the hand to me.

I have to admit, the dual camera system that the iPhone 7 Plus has is great. (The Portrait mode really tempted me to get one. Seriously.) It is understandable that people get the 7 Plus thanks to its clearly better camera. Despite that, I find that the size of the 7 Plus really turns me off. I can imagine a scenario where I would have a hard time getting the  7 Plus from my pocket.

Until we reach the point where a bigger screen can fit a phone with the same size as an iPhone 7, I refuse to accept that the 7 Plus is the right one. Fitting a dual-camera to an iPhone 7-like size is a matter of time for Apple to do.

If Apple gives me an iPhone 8 with the same size but a bigger screen, I’ll gladly LET THEM TAKE MY MONEY.

Until then, I choose iPhone 7.

    I think that when you clearly know what you want from your phone, that’s all that matters. People have different preferences and I guess buying an iPhone or any phone for that matter boils down to that – choice or preference. I know someone who just bought a bigger iPhone (I think 6 plus) then sold it the next day because she realized it’s too big for her hands. She wanted to trade it for a smaller one.

  2. I also like the small sized phones but when I saw the outstanding features of 7+ especially the portrait mode – makes me want to buy!

  3. Our first smartphone was an iphone 4s, acquired when it was first released. It’s really powerful that time. Elroy, a fellow blogger uses an iPhone 7 but it seems kuwang ang features sa camera sa 7 especially ang manual mode. But aside from that feature, the ip7 is really good.. I am thinking of saving for it

  4. I, too, am not a fan of big, bulky phones. No matter how cool or technologically advanced the features are, I just cant see myself holding these big ass phones on my hands. Im pretty satisfied with my 6s as of the moment – not too small, not too big, and still packs a hefty punch in terms of features and specs.

  5. I always love big phones or shall I say Phablet. The 7+ is really tempting but, I can wait a little bit longer. For the meantime, I will settle with my 6s+.

  6. In my own preference, I prefer the iPhone7 because of it’s size. The specs is enough for my needs tho. In the end, what matters is the own preferences of each individual.
