Infinite Flight on an iPhone 7 Plus

I’ve just been thinking about getting an iPhone 7. Is infinite flight just as good on the 7?

Make sure you are connected to WiFi as much as possible as incoming calls can disrupt your signal and flight.

This is a general rule of thumb that I take very seriously when flying on the expert server as an incoming call could mess up the calibration on your phone causing speed violations and God knows whatever other ghosting related issues.

See you in the skies


6S Plus user over here as well.

I’ve had my phone for 2 years haven’t had a case on it for a year atleast, I’ve dropped it 3 times, twice in New York, once in my own country, works perfectly fine, no scratches or cracks

I have tried flying on my iPhone 7 Plus and it is very difficult to me. Far too small; makes it feel more like a video game than a flight simulator. That is mostly because I’m used to flying on my iPad. Going from an iPad to an iPhone for Infinite Flight is a downgrade unless you have an older version iPad.


Join the dark side ;)

S7 is great (I use it)


Wrong thread. I presume you meant to post here:


I use an iPhone 6 all the time. You just have to get used to it:)


iPhones are overpriced. They’re good phones but for the price you could almost get two phones withe the same capabilities. It’s not about tech or innovation anymore, people will buy the newest iPhone just for bragging rights, most people don’t even know what’s inside or what has changed from the last one. Seriously, they’ve been using the same design with huge screen bezels (by today’s standard) for 3 years now and adding a little gimmick here and there. Unfortunately even Samsung is going this way and it’s sad to see another company I used to praise for their innovation go. And about that 1000$ iPhone, that is VERY LIKELY. The (PRODUCT) RED and Jet Black iPhones can already cost up to 1119€ in Europe!

TL;DR: Apple products are getting pretty shit (and expensive)

I’d stick with a tablet if I’m being honest, Global might hit you’re phone’s storage hard, even if they do have sat imagery.

This problem doesn’t happen with Samsung phones. If the phone is being used, there is a little popup for answering and declining the call and it doesn’t disrupt anything no matter what you do with the call… it’s kinda nice really.

I suggest using a iPad then using iPhone to use firelight, LiveFlight, Etc.

microsoft is gone in the mobile industry… js

I’m not gonna debate what effect an incoming call has on a calibration for each phone manufacturer but I will just advise caution to all who are not connected to WiFi when flying on the expert server.

You could miss important ATC instruction or anything could happen. I owned a Note 5 and now I own an S7 im still cautious as my grade means everything (game related) to me . My only ghost came from a loss of callibration due to an incoming call and couldn’t enter the downwind when instructed and was subsequently ghosted. Be careful.


Honestly, all Samsung Galaxy S editions are good imho. And of course all of them have bigger screens than iPhones. I would rather use my money to buy Samsungs rather than iPhones (It’s quite useless in here so it’s a waste of money).

I enjoyed playing Infinite Flight on my Samsung Galaxy A3. Runs really smooth and I rarely find lags on Live even on heavy populated region like in SoCal TS1

@Shawn_Coleman I think it happens on all Android phones not only Samsung. Although it cant be fully blamed to Samsung on that case. Although it’s annoying but I think iPhone also do the same if there is an incoming call. Just my thought.

The only downside from Android for IF is, It has less 3rd Party App for Infinite Flight (i.e IF Assistant, LiveFlight, etc)

Anyways, the only advantage on 7+ than iPad are :

  • Bigger RAM
  • It dont use alot of battery compared to iPad

I think that’s the only different and advantage of iPhone 7+ than iPad


You forgot to mention that there are more companion apps for IF on apple
