What do all of the critics think of the iPhone 7? (The 3:59, Ep. 105)

The iPhone 7 illicits a 'meh' from everyone but you're probably gonna buy it anyway.

The iPhone 7 reviews are in, and survey says Apple's latest smartphone gets a lukewarm response.


Despite its faster processor, improved cameras and better battery life, the iPhone 7 and its big brother, the iPhone 7 Plus, offer a lot of upgrades over their predecessors. But that wasn't enough to impress reviewers. The smartphone is worth it if you're due for a new phone, but patience could be a virtue if you own an iPhone 6S.

You don't have to take our word for it: see our own professional photographer's side-by-side camera comparison between the iPhone 7 Plus, the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6S Plus.

On Tuesday's podcast, we talk about the neutral reactions to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and whether or not it's worth it to upgrade.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and Producer Bryan VanGelder.
