Thoughts on Day 1 of my new Rose Gold, 256GB, iPhone 7 Plus:
I hate it! Right now, I am 80% certain that I will return it and continue using my iPhone 6 Plus instead.
When I press on the Home button, the entire lower panel clicks. I feel like I am clicking on a toy.
I took photos of my iPhone 7 Plus using the iPhone 6 Plus and vice versa. I do not notice any difference in the quality of the photos.
The speakers are supposed to be twice as loud than the previous ones, I hear absolutely no difference.
I notice no increase in speed or performance when compared to my iPhone 6 Plus.
The breaking point is the fact that they took away the headphone jack.
I will shamelessly admit that I am an Apple fan, and have all of their gadgets.
When they decided to change to the lightning connector, I upgraded our iPads just so that they also use the lightning connectors.
I am also a minimalist, which was why I didn't want to have to remember to carry around different connectors, especially when we travel.
But this time, Apple has gone too far by removing the headphone jack! It is the most selfish, greedy, and non-health-conscious decision they have ever made so far! Not to mention how egotistical and unconcerned they are about people who have been loyal supporters of their products throughout the years!
They are basically saying to their fans that 'You are just a bunch of sheep, and it doesn't matter what I do, you will follow'!
The decision to remove the headphone jack was not due to 'courage', it was due to PURE GREED! Since I still use 'normal' headphones for my Surface Pro 4, I now need to carry the stupid Apple headphone adapter so that I can also use the normal headphones to listen to music on
my iPhone 7 Plus.
I was shocked at myself when I suddenly felt that Airpods, which are a complete waste of money, started feeling more like a 'necessity' because Apple took away the headphone jack. And I will probably have to buy another one of those stupid headphone adapters to carry in my bag in case I accidentally leave them at home.
Last night, I listened to music using my iPhone 6 Plus, and this morning, I listened to my meditation music using my iPhone 6 Plus as well.
I asked myself, I got the iPhone 7 Plus for what? Just so I will now have to carry more accessories around all the time?
Removing the headphone jack also shows that Apple has no concern for the public's health, and now wants to brainwash everyone to start using wireless headphones/earbuds 24/7, which causes a lot more exposure to EMF radiation. This is what angers me the most!
I have never hated an Apple product, but I hate that they took away the headphone jack!
