Engadget Review

Unless your hands can't accommodate it, the iPhone 7 Plus is probably the iPhone you're looking for. It takes the foundational improvements made to the iPhone 7 and packs them into a body with a crisper screen and beefier battery. While it might seem weird at first, the "zooming" afforded by the dual 12-megapixel cameras around back is handy too, though you'll wind up paying more for it.

Unless you’re ... ready to live the early adopter life, you won’t actually be missing out on much if you don’t get an iPhone 7. This is an iPhone that lays a marker in tech history, and it will serve as the foundation for many important changes to how phones work and integrate into our lives.

The iPhone 7 might not be a revolution, but it might be the catalyst for lots of them. Your phone will be better in a few months, and even better a few months after that. And wouldn’t that be exciting?

Sooner or later, consumers will probably look back at the iPhone’s puberty phase and accept that changes had to be made for the smartphone to mature. I, for one, am looking forward to a future with fewer wires.

Overall, Apple has packed an awful lot of great technology into a phone that cries out for a redesigned look. But it's still a great phone, and if you're a committed iPhone user you'll want it.

If you are looking to upgrade from an iPhone 6 or older this is a no-brainer. Do it. If you have an iPhone 6S Plus, are a year in, and are wondering if you should move, you should probably make your decision based on the quality of the camera and if that’s important to you.

The future seems bright for the new iPhones and Apple has nothing to worry about. Next year is iPhone's tenth anniversary, so we are sure we'll be treated to yet another pair of competition crushing smartphones. Until then, the iPhone 7 Plus is the best iPhone yet. Time for an upgrade?

TechRadar
It may not be the upgrade we were hoping for, but the iPhone 7 Plus is still an excellent phone with improved cameras, super slick performance and a handy waterproof, yet familiar design.

The Telegraph
If you're on the lookout for a new phone - at the end of a contract, for example - the iPhone 7 comes highly recommended, especially if you take tons of photos. If you're unsure, it might be best to wait.

PC Mag
Absence of headphone jack aside, the 7 Plus is the best iPhone you can buy, with more memory than its smaller counterpart and dual cameras that peer toward Apple's future.

CNET
Apple's best camera phone pushes the envelope to offer great results, but its full potential hasn't yet been tested.
