iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone X Comparison

How does the iPhone 7 Plus shape up against the newer iPhone X?

With so many phones on the market, picking a new one can be overwhelming! Why is there a big price difference when many phones look similar to one another and perform all the same functions? Usually, there’s a reason, but understanding the difference can help you work out which phone is right for you. If you’re on a tight budget, buying a refurbished phone can save you lots of money.

iPhone 7 Plus – a sturdy classic with good battery life

The iPhone 7 Plus still works with Apple’s home button. Many have now eschewed this in favor of larger screens and Face ID, but others still prefer it for its ease of use. To give you an idea of size vs screen. The iPhone 7 Plus measures 158.2 x 77.9 mm, weighs 174 g, and has a 5.5-inch screen. The iPhone X on the other hand measures 143.6 x 70.9 mm, weighs 188 g, and has a 5.8-inch screen. So it’s smaller, although a little heavier, and has a bigger screen. The iPhone X outdoes the iPhone 7 Plus in several aspects, just because it features newer technology, but the iPhone 7 Plus offers great battery life (2900 mAh compared to 2710 mAh) and has a dual lens 12 MP rear camera, and a 7 MP front camera, the same as the iPhone X. 

iPhone X – newer and faster

The iPhone X may have the same 12 & 7  MP cameras as the iPhone 7 Plus, but it has increased technology for better images. The iPhone X is faster than the iPhone 7 plus as it has an A11 processor compared to an A10, and the screen isn’t just bigger it’s better. The iPhone X has an OLED screen which is sharper, brighter, and generally more impressive than the older LCD screen on the iPhone 7 Plus. It also has fast charging and wireless charging.

Which is best?

Although the iPhone X outperforms the iPhone 7 Plus in some areas, it doesn’t completely put the iPhone 7 Plus out of the running. If your phone needs are pretty basic, you’re not a big gamer, and you don’t watch many videos on your phone then the iPhone 7 Plus has a lot to offer. If you’re all about the big beautiful screen and the fast experience then you’d be better with an iPhone X. Whichever model you choose you can save money by buying a refurbished phone.
