This has been on my mind a lot lately and it just keeps getting worse. I have the iPhone 7 Plus (128GB). This thing should be an absolute beast performance-wise. It's the newest addition to the iPhone family, it has the dual cameras, and 3GB of RAM to top it all off... However... I can't help but feel really disappointed in the performance of this thing. I still see stuttering in a lot of places in iOS 10.2. 1. App switcher stutters like crazy. 2. Opening and closing animations aren't consistent. Sometimes it stutters, sometimes it's fairly smooth. 3. Scrolling stutters in various areas 4. Rotating the home screen is glitchy at times. Sometimes the dock flickers and sometimes a few apps will become un-aligned with the rest and then suddenly jump into place after the animation is already finished. 5. Switching to another app from the app switcher stutters sometimes. 6. I probably don't have to say this, but pressing the home button makes me cringe every time I see that stupid laggy animation. If you've been under a rock... it's the effect where the app starts to zoom out slowly, then picks up speed, but the wallpaper didn't get the memo and lags behind after the animation should've been completed. It feels disconnected and just looks plain wrong. No other iOS devices have this dis-jointed app closing animation. Why do I always feel like I bought the wrong iPhone? The iPhone 4 had antenna issues and they ended up even changing the way the signal bars looked in iOS because it made people think they had more signal when really it was just a different graph. Then when I got the iPhone 6, there was bending concerns and iOS 8 was decent on it, but iOS 9 ran like absolute crap. iOS 10 ran a lot better on it, but it still felt smoother than my iPhone 7 Plus. The camera in the iPhone 7 Plus is it's only redeeming factor... other than that, it doesn't seem much better than my old trusty iPhone 6 in terms of performance... actually, there are a lot of places where I feel that my iPhone 6 ran more smoothly. I have to say... this is the first time I've ever purchased a brand new iPhone and felt the performance was lacking... especially running an OS that was basically made for it. I feel like Apple has really spread themselves way too thin on how many devices have to run iOS now. They've got iPad Air 1, 2, iPad mini 3, 4, iPhone 5, 5s, 6/+, 6s/+, SE, 7/+, iPad Pro models, iPod touch... there's just so many freaking devices now on iOS... it's crazy. Anyone else underwhelmed by their iPhone 7? This supposed to be the best iPhone experience, but it feels worse than the 6s in many places (except for camera).
