While Samsung might be in grave danger of losing billions in terms of profits that would have come out of selling the Galaxy Note 7, Apple is also not missing out on a share of these problems with its own iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Of course, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus aren’t bursting into flames like the Galaxy Note 7, but there have been new reports of problems that have been facing those with the phones, particularly connectivity issues.
According to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus consumers, there have been recurring connectivity issues that end up distorting the user experience of these two handsets. Reports have come from Verizon, AT&T as well as T-Mobile users with respect to the data connectivity issues of the two phones. While these can easily be termed as “normal” problems that accompany new devices that are also running on new software, they are not something you’d wish to have on a device that you just shelled out over $650 to buy.
There have also been further complaints regarding the Home button of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. As you may know by now, this Home button no longer depends on physical pressing and instead, it is pressure-sensitive and works with haptic feedback. In case of a hardware failure with the Home button, there is a workaround that lets you access an on-screen home button, at least until an update is made available.
Other than these few complaints, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are actually turning out to be great phones. The latter model is set to enjoy the market now that its fiercest competitor – Samsung Galaxy Note 7 – is no longer a huge threat. This could go on into 2017, especially since market experts predict that very few will be willing to keep up with the Galaxy Note brand. Still, this will have to wait for a year before we can tell.
