Technology fans all over Afghanistan are celebrating the recent news that the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus became available for sale at Afghan Wireless stores on November 10, 2016. As Afghanistan’s only authorized iPhone distributor, Afghan Wireless is pleased to bring the most sophisticated iPhone yet to Afghan consumers. If you’re an Afghan Wireless customer, here are the top eight top reasons why you should get your hands on one of these popular devices.
- Great design
The smooth and sleek design of the iPhone 6 makes another appearance in the upgraded iPhone 7. In fact, the overall look of the iPhone 7 is much the same as its predecessor, with a few notable changes such as absence of a headphone jack and the removal of the two plastic channels found on the back of the iPhone 6. As for colors, the iPhone 7 is available in the brand new glossy Jet Black, as well as matte black, silver, gold, and rose gold.
- Better photos
One of the most exciting new features of the iPhone 7 is its twin camera lenses. In addition to the regular 12-megapixel lens, the phone has a second telephoto lens that’s 56mm (double the size of the standard 28mm lens). As a result of these dual lenses working together, better zooming is available on the smartphone camera than ever before. Unlike standard digital zoom, which typically results in blurry pictures, the iPhone 7 camera can zoom in up to 10x without any noticeable loss in picture quality. No other smartphone currently offers this feature, so the iPhone 7 is a strong candidate for best smartphone camera ever made.
In addition to the double lenses, there are plenty of other camera features that will please photography enthusiasts. Optical image stabilization yields sharper pictures and smoother video, a wider lens aperture allows for more light, and the four LEDs of the TrueTone flash provide 50% more illumination in dark settings.
- More storage
The 16GB base storage found in previous iPhone models wasn’t good for much beyond the operating system and essential apps. With the iPhone 7, the base-level storage has been upgraded to a more sensible 32GB. There are also editions available with 128GB and 256GB of storage. Given that 256GB is the typical amount of storage on many laptops, this option makes the iPhone 7 a great choice for users who rely on their phones to store photos, videos, and other large media files. (All three storage sizes are available at Afghan Wireless.)
- Longer battery life
While some users may find the lack of a headphone jack in the iPhone 7 to be inconvenient, it does allow the phone to hold a much larger battery. The iPhone 7’s battery is 14% bigger, which should add two hours to the battery life. According to details released when the iPhone 7 was unveiled, the phone’s battery can support 14 hours of 3G talk time, 14 hours of Wi-Fi browsing, 12 hours of 3G browsing, and 13 hours of wireless video playback (the iPhone 7 Plus offers extended time on all these activities). This battery boost is a welcome asset for users who want their phones to do more in a typical day.
- Improved performance speed
Not surprisingly, the newest iPhone comes with Apple’s newest and most powerful smartphone processor. The iPhone 7’s quad-core processor features two high-performance cores that run 40% faster and at a higher efficiency rate than their iPhone 6 equivalents. The two other cores run at just one-fifth the power and are used for less intensive tasks in order to help prolong the battery life. The iPhone 7 also comes with a new graphics chip that is 50% faster and three times more efficient than that found in the iPhone 6.
- Vivid colors
The iPhone 7 borrows some technology from the iPad Pro 9.7, which means that it has the most natural-looking display of any iPhone so far. The wide color gamut allows for better color saturation. As a result, pictures and video are far more vivid and lifelike.
- Immersive sound
The iPhone 7’s advanced speaker system features stereo speakers that offer an immersive sound experience that’s twice as loud and much more dynamic than older iPhone versions. The speakerphone in the iPhone 7 is also of higher quality, which is great news for business users who rely on their phones for conference calls. Finally, while the headphone jack has been dispensed of in the iPhone 7, the new Lightning Connector delivers better sound to the new EarPods, which are included right in the box, so there’s no need to get another pair of headphones in order to accommodate the new setup.
- It’s waterproof
Believe it or not, the iPhone 7 is Apple’s first waterproof phone: a piece of news that will be welcome to anyone who has ever spilled a cup of coffee on their phone or been caught in the rain while on the phone. The iPhone 7 easily resists spills, and it can even withstand complete immersion thanks to a waterproof seal which keep its delicate inner workings safe from moisture.
