    There are a tons of handson videos on YouTube. But none of hundred journalists have tested the autofocus speed in photo and video mode.

    So we have to wait for the next week to compare it with the ultra lighting fast autofocus of the Galaxy S7.

    I pray that Apple has speeded up the very slow autofocus speed of the iPhone 6S.

    I too am hoping they've improved the camera focusing speed as from videos I've seen of the Galaxy S7, that thing is crazy fast at autofocusing!

    Thought I'd share with you this from the Apple website:

    "More brains behind the camera. Smarter ISP.
    Why is the camera on iPhone 7 so advanced? It has an improved Apple-designed image signal processor built into the A10 Fusion chip. When you take a photo or video, the ISP powers over 100 billion operations and even uses machine learning to make your images look amazing. Other improvements include faster focus, and improved local tone mapping and white balance."

    Seems it will be at least a bit faster to focus, so that's good news!

    So a bunch of bloggers and some journalists have reviewed the new iPhone 7. They had a closer look at the speaker grills and confirmed what we know since one year.

    All big tech sites have showed us that the iPhone realley hasn't a audio jack port. They don't had a look at all these unknown interestings things. How well works the autofocus, the speakers, whats possible with the 3D-Touch home button systemwide or has different pressures no effect (yet).

    But all they showed is all the new lightning euqipped headphones and sometimes the charger and the lightning cable.

    For next year: Apple: DON'T give iPhones to Verge, BGR and other clowns. Ship the iPhones to Macrumors and they will review it.

    Journalists? You mean bloggers.
    AnandTech is one of the last remaining great hardware review sites but they're relatively slow due to the extent of their coverage.

    Have anyone received a iPhone 7 today and can compare the autofocus speed with the iPhone 6S?

    If have tested the autofocus speed in an Apple Store:

    It's a little bit faster then the iPhone 6S but cannot compete with the autofocus speed of the Galaxy S7.

    No it's faster than 6S. But much slower than Galaxy S7.

    But the iPhone 7 autofocus often can't choose which part of image to focus. That's really anoying.
