  • thegarmac

    Yes, it’s beautiful, but the main question is: WILL IT BLEND??? 😛

    • Trần Trái Dừa

      If you put it in a blender, yes

  • RobDigital413

    Seems like a 7 plus in a smaller case with a face lift……waiting for next OLED model with more RAM
    Owner of 7 plus 256 GB Apple Watch and 3 iPads and 2 Apple TVs by the way and been with Apple since iPhone 4s….this is the worst launch

    • Shinonuke

      I have been with Apple since the 3GS. I am going to wait to see if there are any defects before getting one. I love the 6 core processor and the full screen display. One thing I don’t like about their advertising tactic is the resolution ratio of 1,000,000:1. Most likely this ratio is the dynamic and not the static. Previous models have been advertising the static resolution ratio which is a better indicator of the clarity of the pixels.

    Time to Get it sooner

    Said this in a different post but I’m pretty disappointed that the $1000 phone doesn’t some with the wireless charger. That’s a little ridiculous apple.
