Is Apple's iPhone 7 worth the upgrade?

The Verge's Walt Mossberg has a decidedly mixed, but still positive review of Apple's new flagship smartphone:

"... this new iPhone just isn’t as compelling an upgrade as many of its predecessors. Some might want to wait a year for the next really big thing — and maybe a better audio solution to boot."

The New York Times' Brian X. Chen cuts through the headphone jack kerfuffle:

"The bottom line: Those who have been waiting years to buy a new phone are in store for a major upgrade with the iPhone 7."

TIME's Lisa Eadicicco went a step further, saying the iPhone 7 is "barely" Apple's best smartphone and—while a great smartphone—not necessarily worth the upgrade:

"Speaking with CNBC earlier this year, Apple’s CEO teased that the company would 'give you things that you can’t live without that you just don’t know that you need today.' Do the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus live up to that statement? Not quite. If you’re already carrying an iPhone 6s, there’s little need to upgrade."

And early pre-orders from wireless carriers seem to indicate the iPhone 7 will be worth the upgrade for customers, in record numbers.

Fans on Twitter seem pretty bummed about there's no headphone jack and the phone boasts the same physical design. Is Apple losing its innovative edge?

But iPhone 7 fans are pointing to some huge upgrades in camera technology, haptic feedback and the fact that the phone does not blow up in your face, as reasons why Apple's smartphone is totally worth the price tag.
