    I've gotten to go hands-on with the new iPhone 7 Plus. So, if you have any questions, ask me anything and I'll do my best to answer!

    Default I've used iPhone 7 Plus: AMA!

    Is the iPhone 7 Plus noticeably faster than the iPhone 6s Plus (processing things)? Then again, iOS 10, isn't officially released yet, but... Thanks Rene...

    Hi Rene

    Does the Plus telephoto lens also have optical image stabilisation ? If not , do you know how to works to keep shots aligned.

    Cheers

    Apple A10 Fusion is as faster and more efficient than the A9X in iPad Pro. But that's like saying a Veyron is faster than a Lambo — how much you notice is dependent on how fast you're pushing it.

    How much of a finger print magnet is the jet black option? Does it still feel like metal?

    Did you use the Jet Black iPhone 7 plus, was it a finger print magnet on the back? How do you think it will hold up with scratches?

    Is Tony Soprano dead?

    Is it noticeably lighter than the iPhone 6S Plus?

    I second the question of how is the home button. What's your thoughts.

    Have you tried the new camera features, including depth of field? If so, is it easy to use, or is there a learning curve?

    I believe they're both stabilized but I'll double check.

    It's the same look as iPhone 3G/S, so you'll see the prints you expect to see. It feels like gloss

    Yup! It'll show prints and it'll scuff. If that bothers you, matte black is a better option (or a case). I ordered a jet black iPhone 7, though, because it doesn't bother me.

    The audience is dead

    And no, I didn't notice a difference at the event.

    I figured it was like the old 3G/a was back in the day and that didn't. Other me at all plus I will have a nice case on it as well. Thanks

    Depth of field wasn't available on the demo iPhones so we'll have to wait for October

    How is the color compared to the 6s Plus? It's supposed to be better, as is the screen, are they?

    How well are the antenna lines blended in with the regular black iPhone? The pics appear to almost hide them.

    You mean you have a review unit (:

    Do you think the matte black will be as prone to getting scuffs as the original iPhone 5 in black?

    How does the stereo sound compare to other devices you have used (I know you have tried a couple of Androids you never speak of)?

    Show your work. Yes, you may use a calculator.

    I think he mentioned he ordered a Jet Black iPhone 7 for himself, and basing this post on the demo units at the event. He said the Jet black will be prone to scuffs and scratches like the iPhone 3s (I think).. but he got one anyway.

    Yeah but I'm more curious what he thought of the regular black since it's more closer to the color of the iPhone 5 black.

    The Jet Black was off my list as a consideration from the moment I saw the promos lol
