Love the new home button too. I prefer it now over the physical click button.

Taptic Engine is great at providing feedback when scrolling through pickers or toggling on switches, and invoking control or Notification Center.

Played with an iPhone 7 at Best Buy last night. Couple thoughts. The new home button isn't bad at all. The old button was better but I'm ok with the new one.

One thing that I found weird is not being able to swipe back into the main home screen from the camera once you enter that mode. It's awkward since swiping works on home screen and the widgets view. Just not camera.

Didn't really get to mess around with much else. Trying to buy a matte black 7 today.

Are you guys using the raise to wake function? I like it when I'm sitting at a desk but it's kind of annoying to have the screen turn on when I'm moving it or picking it up to put in my pocket or something.

Yeah. I find it more useful than annoying because I've adjusted my usage to accommodate the feature.

But your gripe is the exact same as mine. It inadvertently turns on when I don't want it to as I'm handling the phone. Inevitably I trigger the widget screen and the phone is taking my touch inputs. Annoying there.

Edit: you guys noticing the animation "lag" when backgrounding an app? It's not really lag per se, but the transition effect seems to have a set acceleration speed within the first half and then it abruptly accelerates. It kinda makes for a choppy transition.

Didn't happen on my 6s running iOS 10.

I have the iPhone 7 128 gig in matte black. Would have gone for a 32 gig but no one had them in stock.

Is anyone with a 7 coming from the 6? How noticeably faster is it?

It feels a little more snappy. I won't really know till I am able to reinstall my backup and start playing around with all my apps and games. Having double the ram, coming from the 6, should be a huge improvement in web browsing.

Went from 6 to 7 plus, noticeably faster for me.

All the Apple stores and ATT stores I checked were out of black iPhones. I had to get mine at a Best Buy Mobile store. It seems like 32 gigs is sold out everywhere. That's why I ended up with the 128. It's all I could find. Not sure I really need that much space.

Overall, feels like 10%-20% faster.  Very noticeble just navigating through Apps - browsing is def snappier as well (went from 6 to 7plus tho)

Come on, how about the question everyone really wants the answer to - - is surfing porn better?
post #2849 of 3195

ios10 made my 6 more responsive.  Apps open and close faster and overall feels quicker.  Don't know how much of your new phone guys' performance is hardware and what is software.

The processors in the modern iPhones have been more than enough to handle basic UI tasks like butter. It's when running apps, processing photos, etc, that you see the benefit.
