    My apologies for all the words but it seems everything around here must be official or it doesn't count.

    Despite the claims by the minority that the 7 is plagued with problems, I am 100% completely pleased with my iPhone 7 Plus in Black. My phone doesn't hiss (unless I put my ear to the back in a silent room and run geekbench 4, so I won't do this too often), it doesn't look yellow, it doesn't click when I twist it because I'd never twist my phone, & it has no connectivity problems (despite having the oh so dreaded intel modem /sarcasm).

    -The black color is sexy. Space gray was boring and uninspired and I'm so glad to have a black phone again

    -The camera is great. Who knows how much it's better than the 6s/6s plus but it takes great picture in my opinion.

    -I love the home button. I tried using my wife's 6s and thought the home button felt archaic already. No more crunch home buttons is a huge plus.

    -I love knowing I can accidentally drop my phone in my beer/pool/toilet/sinkhole without worry (depending on the depth of the sinkhole of course).

    -The thing is fast. Yes the 6s/6s Plus were fast too but at some point we won't be able to tell which is faster. We are nearing that point and I have zero complaints with speed.

    -Raise to wake, rest finger on home button to unlock is awesome. I know the 6s/6s plus have this too but I love being able to unlock without clicking anything.

    -I actually love the new design with the antenna bands more hidden and no headphone jack. It looks nice and symmetrical now.

    -The camera hump looks way better than 6s/6s plus.

    I guess I got the unicorn iPhone since it's not plagued with such issues like the rest of this forum. Who else got a unicorn?

    You can set the home button to unlock with just a touch on any iPhone in iOS 10. Don't need a 7 for that.

    Correct. I guess I was just saying it's nice to just be able to unlock a phone without clicking anything on the 7 and 6s.

    It may not mean much, but curious what your production build week is?

    jet black scratches like ****. can deal with that cause life is short and its a PHONE not a baby. camera bump looks like a pimple, dont care. screen isnt any brighter, dont care. screen isnt as blue, with a slighty tint of yellow, dont care. camera quality is better, still dont care but better than a smack in the face. good to have a 4.7 again after 2 years of that paving slab. mine doesnt HISS. i dont sit on phones cause i dont keep them in my backpocket like a dick. always HATED the physical homebutton since 08', new one is amazing.

    all in all im a happy guy. it looks sharp in JB from front to black and it goes well with my extensive trainer collection.

    My phone is flawless. Perfect build, perfect (non-yellow) screen, and totally silent.

    iOS 10 animations are laggy though...noticeably more so than on my 6S. Probably not hardware related.
