The iPhone 14 receive their first reviews and buying them does not seem so attractive

The opinions were more generous with the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models , which bring more news.


The new iPhone 14 are already in pre-sale and will start to be available this Friday, September 16, with the exception of the iPhone 14 Plus , which will still arrive in stores on October 7.

Some media have already had access to the new iPhone 14 and have published their reviews. What do they say about this new generation?

iPhone 14 that looks more like an iPhone 13S

The Verge does not attack the device, but does not simply recommend it: “The iPhone 14 is good. You probably shouldn’t buy the iPhone 14 ,” their review states.

Although it congratulates the performance of the device and its cameras, The Verge does not find much difference compared to the iPhone 13 , especially that it is worth $100 more.

The Wall Street Journal echoes this sentiment: “The screen on the standard iPhone 14 looks identical to the iPhone 13 to me. It even looks the same as the iPhone 12 to me , though Apple says it’s brighter.”

In the Washington Post , they compared a photo taken on the iPhone 14 to one taken on the iPhone 11 Pro from three years ago. “We had to study it for 15 minutes,” he says.

Most reviews agree that it is more convenient to go for the iPhone 13 for $100 less or spend $200 more to buy the iPhone 14 Pro .

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max: an update that convinces more

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users are finally saying goodbye to the ‘notch’ in 2022. Apple has incorporated its Dynamic Island for software to combine with the new hole for the camera and Face ID sensors. This has been liked in the reviews.

For Gizmodo, this inclusion makes “leaving Android more tempting than ever”, especially due to the multitasking potential that Dynamic Island brings, even if it is not compatible with all third-party apps.

The always-on screen or Always On Display also reaches the iPhone 14 Pro after years in the Android ecosystem .

The Wall Street Journal didn’t notice a big impact of this implementation on the device’s battery life, although the screen loses a lot of brightness to achieve it.

Engadget wasn’t too surprised by the improvement in cameras, going from 12-megapixels to 48-megapixels on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max .

“Most of the photos I took from the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro are basically identical. Sometimes the photos with the new phone were brighter and sometimes they are,” the review states.

Ming-Chi Kuo’s analysis indicates that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have generated greater expectations by bringing more news. This means that they already have waiting time lists.
