[* black] The iPhone 7 shares exact dimensions (138.3 mm × 67.1 mm × 7.1 mm) with its predecessor, the iPhone 6s—but has dropped a little weight, coming in at 138 grams compared to the 143 grams of the iPhone 6s.
[* icon_note] That's a difference of five grams, or about the weight of two American pennies. Is it a big deal? Only if it doesn't cost us in terms of repairability. But that's just our own two cents...
[* black] In case you haven't heard, jet black is the new black. But if you're into fancy metals, you'll still find the iPhone 7 in gold, rose gold, matte black, or silver. We've heard the jet black [http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/9/7/12836762/iphone-7-announced-black-scratch|scratches|new_window=true] pretty easily anyway.
[* black] Also of note, the iPhone 7 does a much better job at disguising those unsightly antenna lines—but not the camera bump. It looks like the mini optical mountain is here to stay.
