The iPhone 7 Plus is the best iPhone available right now, giving you a whole heap of power, water resistant body, not one, but two cameras on the back and super slick performance - although it's just been upgraded by Apple, and you can read all about that in our iPhone 8 Plus review.

The 7 Plus does use the same design as previous handsets, and Apple's removed the headphone jack and upped the price - but if your pockets are deep and headphones wireless you'll love the 7 Plus.

The camera is a big improvement on the 6S Plus, while the improvement in power makes usage even slicker and battery life is better than previous iPhones.

  • What's next? Well, the new iPhone 8 Plus has been announced and is currently going through TechRadar's labs for proper testing. Will it be the best on the market?

Also consider: The standard iPhone 7 is very good too, with a more manageable form factor and lower price point it's the phone that's likely to appeal to a wider audience - but for those looking for Apple perfection it has to be the 7 Plus.
