From the Verge, the iPhone 14 Pro review is a great phone, with a number of useful improvements over the 13. But it’s a small handful of new features, and that leaves the 14 in a tough spot.
The iPhone 13, released a year ago and which Apple is still selling. Is almost identical to the 14 and costs a little less, while the iPhone 14 Pro introduces many exciting new features.
In general, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus reviewers say the display is nearly identical to the iPhone 13. Allison Johnson of The Verge said it’s a good display, but noted that there are other options. that offer more advanced displays with 120Hz refresh rate for the same price or less. Not that it makes a difference in average use, but on this iPhone 14 it lags behind several even cheaper Android devices.
In terms of performance we are on the levels of the iPhone 13. As for the battery, The Verge stated that in the real tests the iPhone 14 ended the day with about 40-50% of remaining autonomy, adding that, although it is difficult making a comparison with the iPhone 13 due to the variable usage, should be enough for most users.
Finally, the camera. According to CNET, the iPhone 14 takes acceptable photos in low light conditions and handles details well.
Dynamic island on iPhone 14 Pro
Exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models, the Dynamic Island replaces the traditional notch found on all standard iPhone 13 and 14 models. Thanks to the software, the cutout transforms into different shapes. And sizes to display incoming calls, alerts, notifications, Face ID authentication, timers, turn-by-turn navigation, live activity and more.
While it is certainly more useful than the notch of previous iPhones. The Verge’s Nilay Patel says the potential of this feature is not yet fully realized, as no third-party app supports the dynamic island at launch. Third-party apps will be able to support Dynamic Island when the Live Activity feature is available later in the year.
Always active display
TheStreet’s Jacob Krol said the iPhone 14 Pro’s new always-on display didn’t have a major impact on battery life during its tests. So, to protect your new display there are some new amazing cover case.
Input’s Raymond Wong put the iPhone’s new 48-megapixel primary lens to the test. And was impressed with the ProRAW photos, but added that he barely noticed the difference with the 12-megapixel photos taken in daylight.
I’ve tried Android phones with high-resolution camera sensors more than once, and somehow they’ve always let me down. Apple’s ProRAW DNG was a little underwhelming for the iPhone 13 Pro and 12 Pro. There is barely more detail from a 12 megapixel RAW than from a 12 megapixel JPEG. Not so for 48-megapixel ProRAW files – these images are huge. (often between 70 and 80 MB). So, the amount of detail you can get is bordering on insanity for a phone.
Wong’s review includes numerous photos taken with the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
