Just like the rest of the World, Apple introduced two variants of iPhone 7 in Pakistan. Namely, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus following the legacy of iPhone 6 and 6s. iPhone 7 was released with 3 different storage variants. The smaller variant, iPhone 7 came with 32GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage with 2GB of RAM and iPhone 7 Plus came with 32GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage with 3GB of RAM. Both variants are available in various color options namely, Jet Black, Black, Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, and Product Red.
Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have been superseded by the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, but 2016’s top-tier iPhones remain on sale and have benefitted from a price cut. The biggest difference between the two is their prices. iPhone 7 price in Pakistan is under 74,000 PKR ad off 2019 whereas iPhone 7 plus price in Pakistan is for 82,000 or above.
Let’s take a look at our comparison to see which is worth your cash. Being a bigger phone, the iPhone 7 Plus is larger and heavier. It has the same chunky bezel as before, and a 5.5-inch 1080p display opposed to a 4.7-inch version. It’s better for media and playing games, but it’s still a sizeable phone that’s difficult to use comfortably in one hand. The biggest differentiator between Apple's two phones is their optics. While the iPhone 7 has one 12-megapixel OIS camera on the back, the iPhone 7 Plus has two. One is a wide-angle lens, while the other a telephoto. You'll be able to switch the two sensors or use them together to offer an optical zoom-type of effect. When it comes to video, the offering of both phones is the same: 4K at 30fps; 1080p at 60fps; and 720p at a slow-mo. 240fps. Powering both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is a brand-new chip, the A10 Fusion, stepping up from 1.8GHz to 2.4GHz. Battery life is the other big differentiator between the two phones where iPhone 7 comes with 1960 mAh battery as compared to 2900 mAh battery of iPhone 7 Plus. The differences between the 7 and the 7 Plus offer up a clear winner in our opinion. While the Plus is more expensive, it proves worthwhile as a result of the better screen, superior camera, extended battery life, and greater RAM. The regular iPhone 7, meanwhile, is a bit of a disappointment –, especially in the battery department. But if you cannot afford the plus and iPhone 7 price in Pakistan fits your budget, go for it.
Apple has always been in the hit list of tech critiques when it comes to consumer usable storage of a phone. Apple was releasing their phones with the 16GB base model until the iPhone 6S series knowing that users cannot insert memory cards in iPhones. However, fortunately, Apple introduced the 32GB base model with iPhone 7 yet people who needed more storage had no other option than to go for 128GB internal storage variant. 128GB variant being in middle slot became the most favorite pick for buyers all around the Globe and Pakistan is no exception. Out of 128GB storage, 7.78GB of storage is reserved for the system so users can avail 120GB of storage for their preferred data. 256GB variant being most expensive is not in the list of many people plus a lot of normal users do not need storage more than 120GB to be utilized in a phone.
One can buy iPhone 7 in used and refurbished condition in Pakistan from many online sales groups and C2C websites like OLX. However, normal users are not aware of fraudulent activities attached to these sources especially related to PTA compliance and registration. Many buyers are reportedly affected with their SIM blockage because sellers did not inform them of PTA noncompliance status while selling the phones. This issue is a general one and not just attached with iPhone 7. For consumer’s own peace of mind, we always suggest to go for crystal clear purchase and one can still find best deals on iPhone 7 in the market and online stores like daraz, telemart, homeshopping, etc.
