First things that comes in my mind after reviewing iPhone 7 Plus is, it need to have better design. Even the phone has 5.5 in display reaching out to its power button is quite hectic sometimes and also the phone can be made more slicker with no 3.5 mm jack. We may find this refinement in Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models this year.
