A report from startup company Aspectiva has shown that the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus devices were well received, with over 70% having favourable things to say regarding the new handsets.

Aspectiva specialises in consumer opinions and uses the latest in machine learning to analyse public feedback. The company has today released a short report detailing what people thought of the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets.

Overall, the report concluded that the launch was a positive one. 74 percent of people had positive opinions of the new Apple iPhone 7 handsets, while only 26 percent were disappointed.

Apple iPhone 7 headphone jack was not well received

The headphone jack was obviously a major talking point and took first place, with the majority of those surveyed saying that it was “a shame” Apple decided to remove the jack in favour of using the lightning connector. Other areas that people disliked included the design, which was described as “poor”, while battery life and the lack of microSD support were also negatively received. Interestingly, the Jet Black case – which we personally loved, came in second place and was seen by many as ugly.

Popular things about the iPhone 7 included the enhanced waterproofing features and its improved camera, while the ‘shiny appearance’ also attracted a lot of positive attention. This seems to contradict the fact that people hated the Jet Black finish, perhaps suggesting a few mixed opinions from the public.
