While some of the new features are reserved for the 7 Plus, the iPhone 7 has received plenty of upgrades as well – including a brighter lens, improved image processing, four-element flash, and optical image stabilization. Both phones also use a new, wider color gamut, DCI-P3, making for richer colors when used with Apple or other high-end displays that support the DCI-P3 standard. Apple is also proud of its new algorithms running on a beefy new image processor, that melds together several images to create the best possible result. Based on our tests, we’ll show you how the new technologies measure up.

Its ticket of around $899 represents a premium over its smaller and slower siblings, but the lens is still competitively priced against the other brands, especially when taking the f/2 maximum aperture into account.

With a Photo sub-score of 78, highlights for still photography include fast autofocus performance via the phase detection and laser-assisted autofocus system, and flash pictures with great detail using the dual-tone flash unit with no fewer than ten LED lights. The Meizu Pro 6 also delivered mostly well-exposed images with pleasant color in many of our tests, although we found dynamic range in some exposures to be a little limited in default mode.
