Decided before the New Year to change your old IPhone to a more recent model. The main criteria when choosing a new device: powerful processor, good battery, camera, and larger screen to comfortably view and consume content.
And of course, do not want to overpay quite a large sum of money for the latest IPhone model, the prices of which overcome all of the psychological mark at the time of the start of sales.
That is why my choice fell on the model 2016 — IPhone 7 Plus, which meets all my requirements.
Where to buy
Next, I started looking for where it can be purchased for the maximum price. Decided to save a little and order the IPhone Aliexpress, through the Russian branch of the online electronics store Tmall.
At the time of ordering it the price was 39990 rubles, the delivery was carried out from a warehouse Tmall, which is located in Russia. The next day after ordering, the parcel was Packed up and sent to me. After 2 days the courier will deliver my purchase right to the house.
IPhone 7 plus original 32 GB in silver color. Was packaged in the original film. No signs of the autopsy and any scuffs.
As soon as I opened the box, there first is the required information and instruction on the use of the device in the form of securities. And then face lay the phone itself.
Under the IPhone were headphones with lightning connector and adapter. Also in the box was the unit charging with the Russian plug and cable.
The quality and originality
The phone is quite big and at first it was hard for me to get used to his size. Only used two hands, but then the size and the weight used. And even more to the big screen (5.5 inches), which is very convenient to read the news and flipping the tape.
First «punched» serial number IPhone by IMEI and made sure that the phone is not «gray» and official warranty and can be repaired in the service center Apple.
When you first turn a new device I immediately set up all functions, for example, a new button «Home», which in the seventh iPhones is touch, not a mechanical one.
Restore all your accounts and passwords. After that started to check. Tested the performance of 3D Touch applications and so on.
One of the most important moments were dual camera (wide-angle, 12 megapixels and a telephoto lens for photos in the «Portrait») made a few test photos, I became convinced that the camera is just awesome, especially felt the difference in quality if to compare with old IPhone models.
Next in line for the check was the CPU. The IPhone 7 Plus installed Quad-core A10 Fusion. Installed a couple applications and several energy consuming games. P
rocessor showed sufficiently high performance, then what I needed. Set up Touch ID and noticed a huge increase in the speed of action of the fingerprint.
Checked the wear level of the battery, it was 100%, this means that telephone were never used and the battery is fully new.
Phone is used for the fifth month, gripes there.
Works quickly, all functions are perfectly perform their task.
During my use the battery has worn down only 2% and now stands at 98%, which is very good.
Not sorry that I bought it from a Chinese website, and thus have saved about 5-7 thousand rubles. I believe that a small difference between the online purchase, in particular from a Chinese website, and purchase in the store.
I can recommend another headphones i7s — a copy of the original headphone from Apple, only much cheaper.
