Apple iPhone 7 Plus
The iPhone 7 Plus is the first Apple device to offer a dual camera configuration. It adds a 56mm equivalent module next to the 28mm module also used by the iPhone 7. Both devices provide a 12MP image capture, image stabilization and an F1.8 aperture lens with six elements. The 7 Plus features a 5.5" Retina display that's 25% brighter than its predecessor's, and provides a wider color gamut. Video recording at 4K is available, as are 1080p and 720p slow-motion modes. The 7 Plus' dual camera enables a depth of field simulation mode.

The Apple iPhone 7 Plus can't quite keep up with the best in terms of pixel-level detail but otherwise delivers very good image quality all-around. Its unique selling point is its dual-camera with a 56mm 'tele-lens.' It allows for the best zooming of all current smartphones, offers an alternative angle of view to the wide-angle and works well in Apple's new portrait mode. There is room for improvement as far as the dual-camera's low-light performance is concerned, but overall the system is a true step forward for mobile photography.
Good for: Zooming, people photography, video
Not so good for: Low-light photography with the longer lens
