iPhone 7 Plus comes with 10x digital zoom to let you capture pics with more perfection. Check out the handy guide to get started with zoom on the phablet.

The verdict is out… iPhone 7 Plus has got the best camera which can make even a pro photographer feel proud. Now, you no longer need to carry a DSLR everywhere to capture stunning shots. The phablet is fully equipped to snap photos with amazing depth of field as well as bokeh/blur effect. Indeed, the ultra-large phablet is the most endearing mini-DSLR in the market.

iPhone 7 Plus boasts of 10x digital zoom to let you capture far-off subjects with more clarity. Moreover, you can effortlessly adjust it. It’s something you would love to have while watching a football game, enjoying tennis or making the most of a cricket match. Personally, I am going to use the digital zoom a lot while traveling.
