Jet Black iPhone 7 after one week of use

This isn't a post to complain about how my precious iPhone 7 has been obtaining some wear and tear but the start of a series of posts to show how it's ageing over time. Since the iPhone 5 I've missed having something that I could use without a case and enjoy in the way that Apple intended. The Jet Black feels like a fusion of the 5C and 6, it feels great in the hand and as you might have read in my review one of the main reasons I chose to upgrade from my 6S.

I've been using it since last Saturday without a case and there are now some light scratches at the bottom of the phone (very hard to photograph but done my best in the first image below) and nothing anywhere else that I can make out.

I hope you enjoy seeing these posts, let's see how this thing looks over the next year.

macOS Sierra: What is photoanalysisid

After my iMac updated to macOS Sierra I started to run into out of memory errors. On checking Activity Monitor I spotted a process called photoanalysisid, which was taking 130% CPU time.

Loading photos I saw that it was scanning photos for faces as it does on iOS 10. I have an album of 22,000 photos and 6 hours later the analysis was done.

So if you are running into a slow mac or out of memory errors on updating here's your culprit.

iPhone 6S camera vs iPhone 7 camera

Now I've got two devices I can do some comparisons, first up a few photos that I took over the weekend. Nothing award winning but shows some difference. Colours on the 7 seem richer and more natural. Maybe 20% improvement over the 6s, nothing mind blowing but a nice incremental update.

iPhone 7 Jet Black Photo Gallery

I was on the fence about updating to the iPhone 7 but when an apparent glitch on the John Lewis site happened I ended up ordering a 4.7" 7 in Jet Black.

I'll be posting up my opinions but wanted to share some images I took of the unboxing.
