Here is a two minue review of iPhone 14

Even the best food, if eaten too often, sooner or later gets bored. I had similar feelings after spending about two weeks with a new Apple smartphone. The iPhone 14 is a really good gadget, but too familiar and a bit boring.

I think if Apple had placed the iPhone 13 instead of the hero of the review on the window of its stores, the vast majority of visitors would not have noticed the difference, even when they picked it up. There are so few visual changes compared to its predecessor that it is difficult to distinguish the new generation from the previous one.

The effect is definitely enhanced by the notch at the top of the screen. Its presence is also not good, because the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max received Dynamic Island. Not only do they not have a “bangs”, but also the island on the display was used in a very ingenious way.

In the regular model, we’ll just get the notch that’s been shoved into iPhones since 2017, when the Anniversary Model X debuted. Of course, it was shrunk last year, but it’s hardly a big change.

Unpacking and kit

We have a typical two piece white cardboard box, very small in size.

Inside which we find:

  • USB Type-C to Lightning cable
  • SIM eject tool

That’s all!

Design and appearance

Yes, we are already familiar with this design and are used to it, so sharper edges do not evoke such emotions as during the iPhone 12 premiere . But, in general, the fourteenth model is quite attractive. I will say more, if instead of a “bangs” on top there was a Dynamic Island, I would consider the base model one of the most beautiful on the market today.

It is impossible not to say about the quality processing and even the perfect fit of the elements. The brushed aluminum sides, at first glance, do not look as prestigious as the stainless steel in the 14 Pro. On the other hand, they should stand up to everyday use much better.

The front and back are covered with a layer of glass. Apple calls them Ceramic Shield, and the coating boasts high drop resistance. If nothing has changed compared to previous iPhones, then the device should withstand drops quite well. I will add that after a period of testing, I do not see scratches, although I often carried the phone in my pocket.

I also have Ceramic Shield installed in my iPhone 12 Pro , but this does not help. Moreover, the glass front and back is quite slippery, which increases the risk of slipping out of your hand. The back also likes to collect any fingerprints, especially in dark color versions. For aesthetes, this will be a problem, and the silicone case resists fingerprints much better.

I have to say that in general the iPhone 14 feels like an expensive smartphone when we hold it in our hands. Made with high quality, the fitting of the elements is on top, plus the already mentioned nice-to-touch aluminum on the sides and supposedly durable Ceramic Shield glass in front and behind. Perhaps few people pay attention to this, but clicking the buttons here is quite pleasant.

 

Screen frequency 60 Hz

iPhone 14 price in Sri Lanka

So, we have a 6.1-inch OLED panel, called Super Retina XDR by the company. The resolution is 2532×1170 pixels at 460 ppi with a maximum brightness of 800 nits (HDM) and a peak brightness of 1200 nits (HDR). Added to this are HDR and True Tone technologies.

We cannot manually personalize the colors of the screen – for example, make them brighter, as, for example, in Samsung. The colors are natural, however, and look very good without having to fiddle with settings. I also have no objections to the sharpness of the picture.

The temperature will be different outdoors and indoors with artificial lighting. This makes the image look better and more pleasing to the eye. We also have a Night Shift feature that aims to make display colors less tiring for the eyes in the dark.

I like the light/dark switch mechanism. Just open the quick settings panel, go to screen-related options, and switch to light or dark mode. The change occurs almost instantly, both in the entire system and installed applications.

Despite these handy features, the iPhone 14 only has a good, not great, screen. The higher refresh rate is also missing – a modest 60 Hz here. It is worth adding that 120 Hz ProMotion technology can already be found in Apple smartphones, but only in Pro models. Also missing is the Always On Display feature that the 14 Pro has but not the base models.

iPhone 14 camera

Apple iPhone 14 price in Sri Lanka

First, 12 MP ƒ/1.5 with OIS system and automatic matrix stabilization. The second is a wide-angle lens – 12 MP, with an aperture of ƒ / 2.4 and a field of view of 240 degrees. Both lenses are protected by sapphire glass, which is designed to provide high resistance to any damage.

The main difference in terms of camera is the 48 MP lens. It is absent from the base model, as is the optical zoom function with a lidar scanner. We’ll have to put up with a modest 5x digital zoom.

I decided to compare the iPhone 14 camera with the 12 Pro camera. I confess that I did not see any significant progress. The photos are of similar quality, although I have reservations about the test iPhone. Photos look less natural – the colors are enhanced. I prefer the approach used on the 12 Pro, which offers more natural color reproduction.

On the plus side, there are no clear color differences between the main lens and the wide-angle lens. Thanks to this, when switching between cameras, we do not have to worry about getting completely different shots.

I think that most of the received photos, despite the color improvements, are satisfactory. However, I note that the iPhone 14 sometimes has problems with the sharpness of a near object – the blur effect is not always applied correctly.

The front camera is also slightly improved. We now have 12MP with an ƒ/1.9 aperture compared to ƒ/2.2 on the iPhone 13. Does it take good selfies? I think social media users will be happy, although I don’t like taking selfies. So I don’t have much experience with this.

Software

Apple iPhone 14 price in Sri Lanka

Right out of the box, the Apple iPhone 14 runs iOS 16, which is Apple’s latest operating system for smartphones today.

Due to the lack of Dynamic Island, the software looks the same as on other iPhones. Describing every feature and solution in iOS does not make much sense, because the system has not undergone major changes for a long time. Nevertheless, I decided to tell you about one of the most important new products.

Apple has finally decided to update the lock screen, giving users noticeably more personalization options.

We are no longer limited to wallpaper choices. Now we can decide on the color and style of the font, as well as install widgets. The widgets themselves are also a handy solution. They provide important information from individual apps, such as the weather, physical activity, battery level of paired devices, or calendar events.

The problem with widgets is their number, but this is gradually starting to improve. Among other things, Facebook and Google services are already present, with other developers due to join soon. An interesting solution that appeared with iOS 16 is the intelligent cropping of objects from photos.

All you have to do is swipe your finger over a given object (such as a person, dog, or car) and it will automatically be cut out of the photo. I will add that the option works surprisingly well. But, I used it only for short tests – apparently, I don’t need it.

Apple CarPlay also promises to be an interesting piece of software and a small revolution. Integration with the car will reach a higher level, and the interface can be displayed not only on the central screen, but also instead of the factory digital clock. Unfortunately, the changes introduced by Tim Cook at the launch of iOS 16 are not expected to be implemented until the end of 2023.

In terms of stability and speed, I have no complaints – iOS 16 and iPhone 14 are a truly commendable combination. There were no problems during testing. What’s more, I didn’t even encounter any small delay.

Component Performance

As we have already figured out, the Apple iPhone 14 received a design, cutout and screen from its predecessor, but that’s not all.

At the heart of the device is the Apple A15 Bionic chip, the same as in last year’s Apple smartphones. The new A16 Bionic has only appeared on the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models.

It is worth noting that so far, all iPhones from the main line have had the same processor, which is commendable. However, this year Apple decided to change the policy, most likely to encourage users to purchase more expensive versions.

A small change in hardware has taken place, but it will be invisible to the vast majority of users. The Apple A15 Bionic processor now has 5 graphics cores instead of 4. Yes, the graphics system has better performance, but this is not the biggest step forward.

The A15 Bionic, inherited from the iPhone 14, consists of a 6-core CPU (two high-performance and four energy-efficient), a 5-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine. Added to this is 6 GB of RAM (2 GB more) and, depending on the variant, 128, 256 or 512 GB for data. Of course, we won’t be able to get additional storage with a memory card.

Although we have last year’s chip, I dare say that no one will complain about performance. iOS 16, apps and games work very well, you can feel that the processor still has a lot of power.

The iPhone 14 system removes excess heat well – in my case, the device only got very hot once when it was connected to the charger. In all other situations, including prolonged and intensive use, the case remained cool enough.

Face ID with useful customization

For several years now, iPhones from the main line have had only one biometric user verification system – a Face ID face scanner.

Apart from the SE models, Apple has parted ways with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner and doesn’t want to restore it. Yes, it’s always better to have a choice, but I’ve been using Face ID for a long time and it’s a great system.

iPhone 14 has learned a new trick that we won’t find in previous versions – Face ID now works horizontally too. You don’t have to twist your smartphone when, for example, it accidentally locks up while watching a YouTube video.

Face ID in both landscape and portrait works fine.

I have not encountered a situation where my face was not recognized and I had to use Face ID again. Even if the phone was on the table, I just leaned slightly over the screen, the system caught me and immediately unlocked the display.

We can also use Face ID with a face mask or scarf. Although this solution is less secure, it works, so even in winter you shouldn’t have problems unlocking your iPhone using biometrics.

Sound quality

Apple iPhone 14 Price in Sri Lanka

All iPhones have high sound quality and good speakers, the Apple iPhone 14 is no exception.

We have stereo speakers at our disposal. Although the bottom emitter is considered the main emitter, it provides more power during playback and is supported by the transducer at the top. The speakers are loud, clear and really good.

Here we can talk about almost a musical smartphone, while we prefer wireless sound transmission. Probably no one will be surprised by the lack of a 3.5 mm jack. However, this is where the Lightning connector adapter comes in handy.

Autonomy Apple iPhone 14

The test iPhone 14 is equipped with a battery that, according to Apple, should provide up to 20 hours of video playback (+ 1 hour).

We’ll also get up to 16 hours of video streaming (+ 1 hour) and up to 80 hours of music playback (+ 5 hours). However, I would like to know how Apple managed to achieve these 20 hours, apparently, these were quite specific conditions. Despite this, the battery used is really good and nothing stops it from offering you a day or even two days away from the charger.

Tim Cook’s company does not spread information about battery capacity very much. But, from other sources, we know that the Apple iPhone 14 has a 3279 mAh battery, which is slightly larger than its predecessor (3227 mAh).

In my case, with a screen brightness of 25-50%, surfing the Internet, using social networks and watching YouTube, the gadget lasted about 21 hours.

Things are not so good when we decide to replenish our energy supply. Firstly, there is no charger in the box, only a Lighting to USB type C cable. Secondly, the maximum charging power is a modest 20W. And wirelessly, we can get a modest 7.5 watts.

Outcome

The main problem with the Apple iPhone 14 is its predecessor, which is still officially on sale.

The new model does not have many changes, but it costs more. Does this mean that buying the fourteenth is unprofitable? Everything depends on you. If you want a little better photos, a little better gaming performance, 6GB of RAM instead of 4GB, and a few new features like Face ID that works horizontally. Then the iPhone 14 might be a good choice.

However, if you do not need it, I see no contraindications to choose last year’s iPhone.

Is it worth buying

Overall, Apple’s iPhone 14 is a very good smartphone, but familiar in many ways. This makes it a bit boring and doesn’t bring anything really fresh to Apple’s offering.

But still it’s a new iPhone, give it a try. May be you’ll experienc it differently from mine. So, visit our store LuxuryX today and get the best iPhone 14 price in Sri Lanka.
