New home button feels.. different but its pretty cool. I didnt have any haptic feedback in the iPhone 6+ and the little vibrations are cool. 3dtouch is cool too.. I was already aware of how it worked and integrated with how I used the phone but didnt have it on my phone. Its nice to have that.

Well I just picked one up a few minutes ago from the Apple Store across from me. I'm not sure how many of them were for reservations, but there was still plenty of phones stacked up at the back counter. Had a couple lines going - one for reservations, one for walk in - neither was very long. The whole area was crowded for this time on a weekday - it was like mid day on a holiday weekend.

We'll see if the headphone dongle annoys me, otherwise it's going back for a 6S.

I got my iphone 7 yesterday and restored it from the latest backup from iphone 6. It worked very nicely. The biggest difference is I saw the much less load time in every games and also it loaded the apps really quickly!

I can't complain. I'm very satisfied with this new phone. I also find the new home button so interesting. I'm not used to it...so I need to get used to it. I changed the haptic setting to 1 for the home button.

You had to order in the first 10 minutes if you wanted a plus size on launch day. First 2 minutes if you wanted a jet black. I ordered the first minute and got a matte black.

Apple didn't underestimate... Suppliers just can't make the phones fast enough. They are better served selling phones than artificially limiting supply.

How is Apple managing to provide pretty significant bumps in overall performance with each new iteration of its iPhone/mobile chips when Intel can only manage 5-10% bumps in performance with each new generation of processors? No competition for Intel so they don't see a reason to or because of something else?

iPhone 7 Problems Exposed, Is Apple Flying Or Dying?

Quote:
Before that, the launch event had waxed lyrical about the new Jet Black color. A highly reflective surface, with a fantastic tactile feel that increases the friction between your hand and the iPhone to reduce drops. The audience was also told that it will pick up micro-abrasions over time so you should get a case as well.


Seriously, Apple? You stood there, showed the mystical machines the created this amazing finish, and then said that it was actually a bit rubbish and get ready to have your precious iPhone scratched like a hire car entering the Daytona 500? As the reviews started to come in the genteel press kicked in again… Apple was right, you need a case for the Jet Black iPhone, but that’s okay, look how shiny it is!
Quote:
While it is tradition that Apple will ‘run out’ of stock on the launch day, this year the tradition seemed excessive, with announcements the night before on the lack of certain handsets at Apple stores, and network partners picking up far less stock than they expected. Wait times now stretch out into late October in some cases, and there is a new level of anger in online reports.

Well I got both phones yesterday. It's a quick phone. The colors of the screen is a preference I believe. It's a better screen but hoenstly unless you really cherry picked a photo you wouldn't say it's better more of just different. The phone is very snappy but so is my 6s/6s plus. The 6s is a better phone aside from the camera. There is an audbile audio quality downgrade with that dumb adapter with better earphones/ headphones, and the new button is just fing stupid. Also, I guess this has to do with the software? The second camera on my 7 plus does nothing. I can cover it completely and photos come out the same zoomed or not.

Second camera seems to only work in the right lighting. If its in a dark room/not well lit room it will opt for straight digital zoom than using the second camera. But, if you go outside where its sunny or in a very well lit room it will work and use the zoom lens. If you switch to other modes besides photo(like panorama or slow mo) it will always use the second lens when you switch to it regardless of the lighting condition.

No hissing noise on my phone though.

Bill try hawking this link at around 12am if youre up:

https://reserve.cdn-apple.com/US/en_...lability?iPP=U

New stock goes in everyday and people have had success just reserving one and picking them up in store. Faster than waiting for youre pre-order.

In terms of overall performance for day to day users, is there much of a difference now v/s what you had with a 6s?

Re: Intel, they are reaching limits with regards to what they can do with the process size and features. Some changes in the near future may let us progress faster, but not yet. We haven't reached similar points for mobile processors just yet.

You would think there would be better shielding for devices by now, as well as testing to address this.

Unless they tested in a noisy environment, such as a snake pit, or the Slytherin set at Hogwarts.

The wifey just got her 7 from FedEx today. My 7+ should arrive on Thursday. I'll set it up and check for "coil whine" but I'm not overly concerned.

Yep, same here. I went through a few Nvidia GTX's back in the day due to coil whine. It is SO annoying.

So turns out my 7 plus is a dud. My silver one came in today and since apple has no replacements for my matte black I just gotta wait. The phone was getting hot as **** really easily, battery would drop literally 1% a min doing nothing, and the home button feedback is just not there anymore. My silver one seems to be a lot smoother but am I the only one who finds these phones laggy now and then. On my 7 I notice lag as well. Happens often in settings menu the most and now and there. It's by far from smooth. My 6s experience was smooth in regular use, these things are laggy in comparison.

not a good sign for using this on 115f phoenix days and leaving it in the truck

I can leave my 1520 in the truck all day and it works fine as long as it was not in direct sun light
phoenix inside car temp can get 150f
