What customers say about "Display"
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • A 5.5-inch Retina HD display with wide color and 3D Touch is also impressive. Performance of the 7+ is much faster, colors more gradient and sharper.
  • The display is exceptional quality with 401 PPI resolution I love watching videos on the screen and using Hi-Res apps.
  • The retina HD display with 3D touch that allows users to press the pressure sensitive display that allows you to access shortcuts faster.
  • The Retina display is the standard 401 pixels per inch for the Plus series, and it is still a better looking display than the 326 pixels per inch of the regular iPhone 7.
  • One of the last great things about this phone is the display. When I first placed my order, I wondered if the display would live up to the claims. Wider-color gamut, 25% brighter.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Unlocked Phone
  • Phone display , camera clarity amazing. Gold colour looks superb.
  • Edge Display with AMOLED screen is beautiful. Glass design on front and back is good but is not meant for clumsy hands or oily fingers.
  • Stunning display. Impressive 5.5 quad -HD screen shows crisp colors from various angles. Best screen on any smart phone.
  • The screen is crystal clear. The phone can take 4K Ultra HD videos which is great.
  • The phone is great in every respect except for the edges. I kept getting false imputs due to not-too-great palm rejection.

What customers say about "Processor"
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • It has the A10 fusion processor which enhances its performance and balances the battery consumption.
  • This is the pinnacle of the IOS software experience. The 2GB of RAM, the A10 processor, and the implementation of IOS 10 is great. Everything runs well and quickly.
  • The processor, its amazing, but so is the processor in just about every phone now a days. But considering this phone is more powerful then any MacBook or MacBook Air, or Even iPad ever created, its pretty remarkable.
  • The processor seems slow. I was looking forward to these fast speeds that eliminating the headphone port was supposed to alllow. Again, I don't seem to notice any improvement over the 6.
  • The phone lags and heats up for no reason.... I dont think the phone is smart enough to handle the fastest processor on the market! Sorry and it's waaayy too overpriced.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Unlocked Phone
  • Great phone especially with exynos processor.
  • This is a good phone- the Exynos processor is powerful and efficient so it has relatively better battery life compared to the US version that has a different processor.
  • Love it. Exynos processor is much faster than us version
  • The processor (this one has the international processor--much faster than the US processor) and battery life is wonderful!!! Right now it's 5:04pm and it's been off the charger & heavy use since 7am and I have 60% battery!
  • The US version of the phone uses the latest and greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. This is a 64-bit quad-core CPU. It's fast, it consumes little power, and it is very efficient.

What customers say about "Camera"
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • There are definite upgrades. This features two 12MP cameras for high-resolution zoom and an ƒ/1.8 aperture for great low-light photos and 4K video. This was a biggie for me
  • The advantages are the dual camera that has a 12 megapixels with 7 megapixels for the second camera with DSLR quality, which enhances the colors and quality, has 2x the optical zoom and records 4k videos.
  • The Dual camera- it takes really sharp pictures much sharper than my iPhone 6 Plus up to the 2X magnification.
  • It has a wonderful camera, and the pictures are much clearer and sharper than my V10, which had a pretty good camera.
  • The camera on the iPhone 7 is exceptional. The phone actually has two rear facing cameras. One is for normal range photos and the other is for longer range photos.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Unlocked Phone
  • The camera's auto focus is super fast and I feel like I'm able to get a capture a lot of moments that my previous phones were too slow to shoot.
  • Great pictures with rear facing camera and has physical image stabilization(shake the phone and you hear the clicking from the lens bouncing around)
  • reat design, smart, camera is wonderful even in the night time with bad light.
  • The camera is exceptional, have auto focus and it is impossible to have bad pictures
  • The only problem is that it is so sensitive that a single harder touch can become multiple pictures

What customers say about "Features"
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • The touch ID and home button are on the front at the bottom. Both of your volume and power buttons are on the side.
  • Siri is definitely the best assistant out there, and I'm going to use her a lot.
  • The dual speakers are wonderful. I've had many different brands of phones, and the speakers on this one are finally loud enough to where I can have a phone conversation with them on, and hear perfectly.
  • I like the fact that one can still assign photos and specific ringtones to contacts.
  • I hate the home button. It's really irritating to have to press that thing instead of swiping left or right when I want to access something. In this respect, they're way behind Android.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Unlocked Phone
  • The edge feature is pretty cool because you can have the phone lying on your nightstand and still see what time it is without sitting up. You can have it display the time on the edge of the device which goes down the side of the phone. It is a little thing, but I like it!
  • All accesories came within sealed box (headphones, sim remover, usb adapter, charger, device, etc)
  • Like headjack on the bottom, now you can slip you phone in the pocket without flipping it over to make headjack on the top while it is in your pocket.
  • Only thing that came with very low, cheap quality was the AC adaptert. Look like the one you buy in grocery shop at half dollar.
  • The headphone does not work. I guess that's why it's cheap.

What customers say about "Power"
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • As for the phone itself, it has a battery that lasts for several days (depending on usage), far superior to my now aging iPhone 5, and is super fast!
  • Nothing to say as it is IPhone just go ahead to buy this time battery is too good from Apple
  • This 7+ also has the longest battery life.
  • The only thing that bothers me is the battery charge time. It's a 3 hour charge compared to a 1 hour charge on my S7 edge.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Unlocked Phone
  • The battery life is amazing and requires little charging(guess this depends on your usage).
  • The battery - so powerful, i can use my phone for all day and the battery will not dead.
  • Battery life is great. The wireless charger is a fantastic addition.
  • All day battery life as long as you're not running GPS for 12 hours(did this, drove from east coast to mid west in a day. Bring fast charge capable charger)
