    I'm sticking with my 6S+. Dual camera on the 7+ is interesting, but other than that, nothing really piquing my interest.

    If there's a new color, such as the black or blue, I might buy pre-order one and scalp it during the first week :D

    Yep, regular headphone jack now gone in favour of lightning jack. Adapter will be included.

    Hrm, tickles my fancy. Been on the Android for so long now.


    Out of curiosity why does the 4.7 display use 1334-by-750-pixel resolution?

    You can't. Apple is making you spend another A$229 to be able to do that with the Airpods. Just don't lose them... hahaha

    You do realise the iPhone isn't locked down to using AirPod's right?

    hmmmm, not real sure about these - I'd hate for them to fall out and get lost. Courage certainly is a word you can use to describe this decision, I'd say they are betting that this type of headphone is ready for mainstream use. Time will tell if this is a fuckup I guess.

    I'm just running through the tech specs on the 7+ compared with the comparable 5.7" flagship phones from the other major manufacturers. Where is the attraction to this phone? Unless you're dependent on iOS (which may be a valid reason), I just don't understand.

    Nice spec and power boost.
    I like the appearance.

    That headphone jack is a deal breaker for me though. My old car only has 3.5mm input. I plug it into the stereo while driving and need to be able to charge it too. Same story with my mates car. I would loose that adapter straight away. Likewise I can't go around buying separate headphones just for my phone.

    Sorry Apple. Gonna sit this one out.

    If they had made a slightly thicker version with 3.5mm I would be all ears.

    It will work as advertised, that is how I would sum it up. Apple haven't been one to lead the pack since Steve passed but they still know how to do seamless integration in their ecosystem. If their new wireless standard offers amazing audio quality with no cables compared to bluetooth's failed attempts then I am all for it. If you don't like the AirPods, then don't use them. I don't see the problem with the adapter personally, leave it plugged into the dam headphones and forget about it...

    I couldn't give 2 shits if phones like the Note 7 has a edgeless display or glass front and back, I want a phone that works reliably and so far, no Android phone has delivered that experience for me and I have tried 3 times.

    There will be a wireless adapter in a very short time, I guarantee it.

    Personally the only thing I hate is the fkn camera bulge. Steve would have never let that happen.
