After months of speculation and dozens of leaks, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are finally here. While the world responded with mixed reviews to Apple’s latest release, the team here at BodyGuardz® is still plenty excited about the newest addition to the iPhone family.
After all, the new iPhone is stronger, faster, smarter, and more beautiful than ever. And because of everything the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have to offer, we want to help you protect your investment. If you plan on upgrading, here are five reasons you should consider investing in a BodyGuardz screen protector and case for your new phone.
1—The glass screen is still fragile
The iPhone has long been touted as the most beautiful smartphone, and for good reason. Its colorful graphics, smooth edges, and glass screen all connote luxury, delicacy, and fragility.
The problem is: the iPhone is, in fact, very fragile. And neither the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus are exceptions. The glass Apple uses on the screen has only gotten thinner over time, leading to an estimated 25% of all iPhone users breaking their screen at some point. In addition, Americans have spent $10.7 billion replacing broken screens since the iPhone was introduced in 2007.
The solution? Place a BodyGuardz Pure® 2 screen protector on your phone. While screen protectors can’t prevent all damage, they provide a buffer between your fragile screen and the world.
2—The jet black finish is prone to scratches
iPhone users everywhere rejoiced when Apple introduced a jet black finish for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The finish is sleek, sophisticated, seamlessly connects the front and back of the phone.
But while the finish is beautiful, it isn’t indestructible. According to a footnote on Apple’s website, "The high-gloss finish of the Jet Black iPhone 7 … may show fine micro-abrasions with use. If you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone.”
If you’re interested in the jet black finish and don’t want to cover it up with a case, consider buying BodyGuardz UltraTough Clear Skins for your phone. The skins are made from a thin, self-healing urethane film that will prevent scratches from taking away from your phone’s beauty.
3—The iPhone 7’s impressive internals deserve a shock-proof case
While the iPhone 7’s exterior is almost identical to the iPhone 6, Apple introduced a slew of upgrades to the phone’s interior, making the iPhone 7 the most powerful, versatile phone on the market. A few of these upgrades include:
• A10 fusion chip—This is a 64-bit quad-core processor that, in plain English, helps the iPhone 7 run two times faster than the iPhone 6 (120 times faster than the original iPhone).
• Longest battery life of any iPhone—The A10 fusion chip also helps manage and extends the phone’s battery life.
• 2GB RAM for iPhone 7, 3GB RAM for iPhone 7 Plus
• Two times more storage—Apple ditched the 16GB model and upgraded the iPhone 7’s base storage to 32GB. Notably, Apple didn’t increase the price for the increased base storage, making more storage more accessible to more users.
• 3D touch 2.0 sensor with more pronounced haptic feedback
• Upgraded camera system (more on this in the next section)
With all the heat the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are packing, you’re going to need a shock-proof case to prevent any internal damage when you do inevitably drop your phone. BodyGuardz offers a selection of cases proven to protect your phone without detracting from its beauty.
4—The upgraded camera system requires extra protection
Much like photographers care for their gear by keeping it away from water, preventing lenses from coming in contact with rough surfaces, and storing cameras in camera bags, you should take steps to care for your iPhone 7’s upgraded camera system.
The most fragile part of the system is the lens area on the back of the phone. Because this part of the phone protrudes further than any other part, it will be the first thing to come in contact with concrete, sand, and whatever other surface you set your phone on. To prevent scratching—or even breaking—the lens, place a case on your phone to provide a buffer between the camera and the world.
5—The new iPhones are expensive
The iPhone 7 is not cheap. The 7 starts at a price of $649, and the iPhone 7 Plus at $749. No matter your financial situation, that’s a lot of money to spend on a phone.
Fortunately, BodyGuardz is here to help you protect your investment. We have a full range of screen protectors, skins, and cases that will only make you love the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus even more.
