Comparison and differences: iPhone 14 VS iPhone 14 Pro

0 0

The game of seven differences is not enough when it comes to comparing iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. The two premium mobiles from Apple, unveiled on September 7, 2022, are indeed very far apart if we look at their technical data sheet, even though they seem very similar at first glance…

iPhone 14 VS iPhone 14 Pro in a nutshell:

  • best photos on iPhone 14 Pro
  • same size screen
  • chip A15 Bionic VS A16 Bionic
  • cheapest: iPhone 14
  • battery: slight advantage for the iPhone 14 Pro

Two not so different ranges

Material

We said it; at first glance the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 look a lot alike. And for good reason: both designed by Apple, they differ more in terms of pure technical specifications than in terms of design and functionality. We notice that the format is identical: a 6.1-inch panel sits at the front, the stereo speaker and a microphone are located on the lower edge alongside the charging socket and the buttons are on the side . On the back is the photo sensor with flash and logo headed in the middle of the chassis.

Under the hood, Apple offers 5G connectivity , the most advanced generation of Bluetooth and super-fast Wi-Fi to communicate or send files with AirDrop. On the security side, the TrueDepth sensor is available on both iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 and Gorilla Glass protects the screen in the event of a violent impact or against scratches. Finally, be aware that the water resistance has also been compared and it is identical on both models: 6 meters deep for 30 minutes maximum.

iOS 16

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 are also powered by the same proprietary operating system: iOS 16. If you’ve already tested it on iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13, nothing changes on the services side . You will thus benefit from all of Apple’s multimedia offers, including TV+ for films and series, Music for audio streaming or Photos to manage your photos. There is no difference anyway between the preinstalled apps, including communication side with Messages, Mail or FaceTime.

iOS 16 also has a whole host of other features intended to defend your personal data that many consider very effective compared to the solutions offered on Android. Among them, the Locate app finds your lost iPhone, iCloud+ can hide your email address and the iMessage format encrypts your exchanges from start to finish. On a daily basis, the interface of iOS 16 on iPhone 14 Pro and on iPhone 14 is fluid and responsive and the efforts made to work hand in hand with Mac & iPad clearly make the difference against the competition.

What changes

iPhone 14 Pro VS iPhone 14: performance

Now let’s talk about what clearly differentiates iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14. Starting with performance. On iPhone 14 Pro, Apple offers us for the first time an A16 Bionic processor where the “classic” iPhone 14 is limited to an A15 Bionic chip. In benchmarks, the power difference reaches 9% in single-core (no difference in multi-core). You will therefore not notice anything if you perform basic tasks such as office automation or writing e-mails.

In the case of very greedy games or video editing, perhaps at times, the iPhone 14 Pro can take the advantage. Still, the A15 Bionic chip of the iPhone 14 and the A16 Bionic of the iPhone 14 Pro have the same number of GPU cores: 5.

Conclusion: therefore difficult to give the advantage to the 14 Pro in terms of performance.

Photo comparison

If you take a look at the back of the iPhone 14 Pro, you will immediately detect a noticeable difference in the photo sensor since it has three lenses , where the iPhone 14 has only two . The missing lens is the one that allows you to take very close shots, not to mention the case of the LiDAR radar capable of better measuring distances for augmented reality or portrait mode. Overall, zoom , both optical and digital, is better on the iPhone 14 Pro.

All lovers of quality poses will tell you: the rear photo block of the iPhone 14 Pro is incomparable with that of the iPhone 14, because of these two additions. We could also mention the case of the front photo sensor, but it is of such good quality, both on iPhone 14 Pro and on iPhone 14, that the differences here are negligible.

The screens

Also good to know: the iPhone 14 Pro display has an adaptive frame rate that can shoot up to 120 frames per second. Compared to the iPhone 14 which does not take advantage of this advantage, you will therefore consume less energy in the event that you read plain text. However, as soon as you launch a gaming session or play an action movie, then the graphics will certainly be more pleasant, but they will also consume more energy. A key difference if you enjoy the seventh art in transport or over long periods with your mobile…

Otherwise, on iPhone 14 Pro, you not only benefit from a brighter panel , but also from the new “Always-on screen” technology. This allows you to keep a display always present on the screen of the smartphone, even when it is put to sleep. The screen of the iPhone 14 does not have this novelty.

Autonomy: iPhone 14 VS iPhone 14 Pro

Probably thanks to its ProMotion screen, the iPhone 14 Pro holds a charge longer in video, with 23 hours of battery life announced in video playback and 20 hours in video streaming. Compare with the 16 hours of streaming and 20 hours of playback on the iPhone 14, i.e. 4 and 3 hours difference . Which is not noticeable at home, but can quickly decide you to opt for the iPhone 14 Pro on the go. In audio playback, oddly, the iPhone 14 is announced with 80 hours of battery life, 5 more than the iPhone 14 Pro!

Two slightly different designs

There are also some differences between iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 on the format side, because the first is barely heavier with 206 g on the scale, against 172 g for its little brother. Otherwise, the dimensions are almost identical. But the iPhone 14 Pro benefits from a case designed in stainless steel where the iPhone 14 is content with aluminum bodies only.

The front panel differs all the same with a Face ID notch present on iPhone 14, when the iPhone 14 Pro integrates its front captures in a pill-shaped opening. This is otherwise called Dynamic Island . It is reactive, depending on the applications displayed on the screen, and can even respond to certain touch commands!

There are also different colors depending on the versions chosen: Blue, Mauve, Midnight, Stellar Light and PRODUCT(RED) for the iPhone 14 or Violent Intense, Gold, Silver and Space Black for the iPhone 14 Pro.

Price comparison

The prices of iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 are different depending on the storage capacity chosen during the purchase:

  • 128 GB: 1,019$ for iPhone 14, 1,329 $ for iPhone 14 Plus
  • 256 GB: 1,149 $ for iPhone 14, 1,459 $ for iPhone 14 Plus
  • 512 GB: 1,409 $ for iPhone 14, 1,719 $ for iPhone 14 Plus
  • 1 TB: 1,979 $ for iPhone 14 Pro, the iPhone 14 not being offered with this capacity

Which of the iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro is for you?

Now that we’ve compared every aspect of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 in detail, it’s time to give you our final shopping tip. The iPhone 14 is the one that caters to the lower budget audience , as it’s far more affordable. It is also an excellent gateway to iOS while remaining in the high end and without sinking into the compact diagonal of the third generation iPhone SE . In this mobile, Apple has succeeded in everything without exception, so that it is sometimes difficult to compare it with the iPhone 14 Pro.

So of course, the iPhone 14 Pro does better on several points, especially in photography, video games and video . But is it worth 310 $ more? It’s not certain, especially when you know that there is also an iPhone 14 Pro Max and an iPhone 14 Plus with larger screens that will really make a difference. In any case, the iPhone 14 Pro is better on paper and will make you less regret Apple’s higher prices against the competition, because there are some real high-end elements here that the iPhone 14 doesn’t have.
