Design and Display of the iPhone 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus

Ergonomics and Build

Both, the refurbished iPhone 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus boast a chic aluminum Unibody, and are IP67-certified water-and-dust-resistant (this still doesn't mean you're allowed to go deep-sea diving with it).

At 4.7 and 5.5 inches respectively, even the piano-fingered will toil, handling the refurbished iPhone 7 Plus one-handed (unless you're a limb contortionist or something). At 138 grams, the iPhone 7 is definitely lighter than its counterpart by 50 grams.

Colors and Display

Bling Alert!! Both, the refurbished iPhone, 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus come in Silver, Rose Gold, Black, Jet Black, and Gold color options. Accessorize these with some great deals on Back Market.

Both models boast an LED back-lit Retina display with a wide color gamut that allows for brighter colors. The 3D Touch function on the refurbished iPhone 7, and the refurbished iPhone 7 Plus is pressure-sensitive, and you won't need to push too hard.

One difference though is that the refurbished iPhone 7 Plus will give you better screen resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels!) The iPhone 7 isn't far behind at 1334 x 750 pixels.

Sounds and Audio Input

Both the refurbished iPhone 7 and the refurbished iPhone 7 Plus are fitted with on-board stereo speakers however Apple decided to eliminate the 3.5 mm headphone jack. No worries though - they've kindly thrown in a converter, and wired ear pods that can be connected to the lightning port, at no extra charge.

Technical Specs of the iPhone 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus

RAM and Storage

Expect faster performance with the refurbished iPhone 7 Plus' 3 gigs of RAM. The iPhone 7 meanwhile comes with 2GB RAM. It's simple math really. More RAM = more performance, more longevity, and more multi-tasking.

A pet peeve with iPhones in previous years used to be the 'not expandable' storage. This time though things have changed, and both the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus come in 3 options - 32GB(base model), 128GB, and 256GB memory. Say goodbye to those harassing 'out-of-storage' error messages.

Battery Life

With regards to battery, the refurbished iPhone 7 Plus' battery (2700-3000 mAh) easily outperforms the refurbished iPhone 7 (1700-1900mAh). Expect a 10-20% difference. This should bode well with those who enjoy time away from cables , adapters and power banks.
