Design & display:
It is not A paper thin or unusually light, but the fact is that it’s just smooth all the way around makes it fit very nicely in hands. By design, it is very familiar to iPhone 6. Same shape, same dimensions, same weight, same feel on the hands but with some several improvements.
It is a 4.7 Inches smartphone with a matte finish and a deep, high-gloss jet black constructed with strong 7000 Series aluminum. Its resolution is 1325 x 750 pixels which give you the resolution of 326 ppi. And the screen is protected by lon-strengthened glass and oleophobic coating. It is a 7.1 millimetre thick and weighing 138 grams, the iPhone 7 is still looks and feel great in the hands. Its LCD is likely the best LCD screen we’ve ever seen for colour and brightness but still losses of AMOLED displays for contrast. The iPhone 7 have a much wider colour gamut than all the previous models.
The retina pixel density of iPhone 7 is excellent for day to day activities. Those who want to get their hands dirty on phones or are interested in trying out some virtual reality will be disappointed in this 750p resolution.

It isn’t the button at all, and it is the one of my favourite new feature in iPhone 7. the new Home button works on phone’s vibration system just like touch button, and it can be customized. It is now more responsive, durable, and sensitive. The new button is similar to force touch trackpads in the new MacBooks. It won’t take user long to acclimate. Manual buttons on older iPhones feel a bit clunky.
The new black model of iPhone 7 is awesome. It is created with bead-blasted aluminum, and it has a deep matte finish. It is tough to find that from where aluminum starts and from where glass starts. But the black colour model is only available in 128 GB and 256 GB phones.
