Cons and Demerits of iPhone 14/Pro/Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max
Battery Still Poor

Many android phones support up to 4000 mAh battery, like Samsung Galaxy S22, Huawei P50 Pro, to name a few. It's disappointing that there's still no significant boost on iPhone 14/Pro/Pro Max battery life. You'd better prepare a power bank for your iPhone 14 if you need a long trip.

UPDATE 1 Day ago
No appealing design

The new iPhone seems to have no ideas. Every year, we see faster processor, new iOS, improved battery, and better camera. But we don't see no exciting new features.


iPhone 14 starts at $799, while iPhone 14 Pro, Max and Pro Max are priced at $999 or above. True, components now are replaced by advanced versions, such as A16 processor, 5G support plus other fresh designs. But, hey, the price tag is high!

iPhone 14's Demerits in File Transfer

Connect your iPhone 14 to computer via a USB cable, and you can transfer files between them freely? Time to wake up. iOS, be it earlier version or new iOS, doesn't allow users to access iPhone files on PC/Mac directly, let alone file sharing. This is, as always, a big disadvantage of iPhone (14/Pro/Pro Max) to be reckoned with.

iTunes and iCloud are designed for iOS data transferring, however coming with various defects. iTunes is dead now. Let's name a few here. iTunes, covering media playback, digital store and iOS devices management, turns out to be a complicated app, running slow on computers and strictly limiting video audio format to MP3/MP4. Relying on internet connection, iCloud works slowly too when syncing files, especially large ones. Worse still, only 5GB free storage is available, which is far from enough for media backup. Upgrade is allowed at a price.

Luckily, there's an easy-to-use and professional iPhone 14 file manager!

 Other Mobiles Compared to iPhone 14 
iPhone 14 vs. Samsung Galaxy S22

6.8-inch curved screen of Galaxy S22 makes this Samsung flagship look much different. The Samsung Galaxy S22 is available in 8GB RAM + 128GB/256GB storage configurations, while iPhone 14 also features 128gb, 256gb, 512gb and 1TB storage capacity. Galaxy S22 uses Snapdragon® 8 Gen 1 processor, and iPhone 14 employs Apple A16 chip. Plus, running on latest Android 12 and iOS 16, Galaxy S22 and iPhone 14 can deliver faster speed and greater performance.

iPhone 14 vs. iPhone 13

How the New iPhone 14 could be different from the current iPhone 13 models? The biggest iPhone 14 vs iPhone 13 change is the design. Apple ditches the notch on the Pro models while also eradicating the camera bump around back. But there’s a lot more changes in terms of specs upgrades, camera improvements such as 48MP camera, the Dynamic Island, always-on display, and even a new model as Apple tries to hold to its best phone title.

iPhone 14 vs. HUAWEI P50

Compared with HUAWEI P50, iPhone 14 comes with all-screen OLED display along with all iOS 16 new powerful features. The Huawei P50 Pro is a well-put-together phone, albeit it lacks Google Mobile Services. It focuses on photography which is skilled in producing images that are more realistic and utilizes the new Huawei XD Optics and Fusion Pro software, plus a unique four-sensor camera array for main camera shots. iPhone 14's batter life is expected to be the same as iPhone 13. On the other hand, Huawei P50 has price advantage.

iPhone 14 vs. Pixel 7

Both iPhone 14 and Pixel 7 come with the largest screens and feature ambient light sensor, Proximity sensor, plus having an extra large phone like these two means that the processor like A15/16 bionic and Google Tensor inside can run at its best and highest performance without overheating. Also, keep in mind that so far, we only have rumors and leaks for the iPhone, while Google has already officially given us a very official glimpse at the design of the Pixel 7 Pro. Still, the two phones are only coming in the fall, so stay tuned and get more details here.
