What happened to the iPhone 7 Plus in the color “black onyx” in a week after using no cover [photo]
In the new flagship the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has improved almost all of the key features and added two new colors: black matte anodized and “black onyx”. The last color scheme was the most popular among buyers, but also caused a wave of complaints.
Although Apple States that the strength of the body of color “black onyx” is not inferior to other anodized “Apple” products, as it can scratch. “If it bothers you, we recommend you to choose a case to protect your iPhone”, — said in Cupertino.
Blogger Zach Hall shared a photo shoot of your smartphone iPhone 7 Plus, which he used throughout the week without a cover. According to him, he doesn’t like to hide the beauty behind a nondescript box, so I decided not to listen to advice Apple.
“Glossy aluminum surface feels like glass. I don’t think the touch will I be able to distinguish the display or the back cover of the smartphone. For this reason, the body of the new iPhone collects fingerprints like glass. I constantly have to wipe the surface of iPhone edge t-shirt, just like I do with the screen,” explained Zach.
In Apple claim that to achieve a gloss effect iPhone case 7 color “black onyx” subjected to high-precision nine-the process of anodizing and polishing. The result is “so deep and uniform black color that the boundary between the glass and the aluminum are virtually indistinguishable”.
Despite the complex process of anodizing a week of use without a protective case the iPhone 7 Plus covered with micro-scratches.
“Most micro-damage concentrated at the bottom edge of the iPhone. I think they came from something that I tend to get a smartphone from his pocket and put it on the table, noted the blogger. – However, these micro-scratches only visible under bright direct light and cannot be felt with the fingers.”
Many potential buyers iPhone of color “black onyx” choose this model for an attractive appearance. And the cover really hides the “luxurious deep gloss” color, as it is characterized by Apple itself. On the other hand, and scratch that result from the use of, eventually will bring all the beauty. So to use this model without a protective case extremely short-sighted.
