    In normal use, without zoom or bokeh effect, are there any differences between 7 and 7+ cameras????

    Yes. The extra 1 GB RAM allows a much quick processing of the image and hence faster (by mseconds) shot.

    I could be wrong, but doesn't the 7+ camera also take better low light shots?

    No difference whatsoever in primary camera, the Plus just has the additional camera that allows for the optical zoom and bokeh.

    I believe there USED to be a major difference between Plus and Standard iPhone cameras.

    The Plus had OIS while the Standard lacked it.

    That difference has been eliminated.

    Other than that, NORMAL use, as you asked about, is no different between the two models.

    To the average user, the only real difference is the ability to switch between the two cameras and the added "Portrait Mode" feature coming in IOS 10.1. However, if you want to get technical, the situation isn't as simple as it seems.

    The iPhone 7 has one 12mp Camera with a 28mm Wide Angle F/1.8 Aperture 6 Element lens. On the other hand, the iPhone 7 Plus has two 12mp Cameras one with a 28mm Wide Angle F/1.8 Aperture 6 Element Lens (same as the non-plus) and Second one with a 56mm Telephoto F/2.8 Aperture 6 Element Lens.

    However, and this is where things get tricky, the iPhone 7 Plus is actually almost always using both cameras at the same time, using something called "Computational Photography". Now to the average user, you may never actually notice a difference. However, this could lead to the iPhone 7 Plus having improved dynamic range, improved noise reduction, and improved image sharpness.
