The price and the processor of a previous generation have been one of the sections that weigh the most when purchasing the new iPhone 14 and 14 Plus. However, there are many aspects that make the iPhone 14 an ideal device for most users due to price and specifications. We will analyze them below.
The evolution of the iPhone 14 cameras
The chip, inherited from the iPhone 13 Pro Max, together with the new features that the camera incorporates, makes it a device for all amateur and semi-professional users who want to enjoy the benefits of the double camera, since it includes a new Action Mode and image stabilizer that saves us from carrying many accessories. However, although the megapixels are the same as the last generation, the camera aperture is larger, so you get a jump in image sharpness and quality in most scenarios.
Continuing with the rear camera, the Photonic Engine mode is the evolution of Deep Fusion, where it adds much more detail, photo exposure enhancement and a higher level of sharpness. This improvement, together with the 4K cinema mode, represents a jump in quality that you will notice from the first moment.
Notch reduction, improvements to Face ID and front camera and accident detection.
The Notch has been reduced in percentage terms, occupying the same volume as in the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max and includes improvements such as the possibility of unlocking the iPhone from a horizontal position. Within the Notch itself, a new front camera and an autofocus stand out, which is responsible for providing the images with greater sharpness and light.
The new iOS 16 operating system includes a new layer of lock and widgets that opens up a new world of possibilities when it comes to personalizing the screen of your iPhone like never before. Therefore, the renewal of the Notch and the lock screen make you feel that the device has undergone a small facelift.
The main difference from the previous generation is the notification of Emergencies in case of Accidents, since in the event of one occurring, the device could connect with the emergency authorities via satellite, which can save the life of the owner and the members involved. This option is not yet available in Spain, but it will probably be included progressively in most countries.
Conclusion: Is the iPhone 14 worth it?
Perhaps the main problem with this device is its constant comparison with the iPhone 14 Pro, when they are devices that are part of different segments and with a different audience. It is true that there has been a price increase, and it does not have the best of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, but its true comparison has to be made with the iPhone 13, since it is its direct predecessor generation.
The price difference between the iPhone 13 and 14 is 100 euros, but if you come from several previous generations, the most recommended thing is that you buy the iPhone 14 with its improvements in cameras, Notch, processor, battery and safety in case of accidents. , in addition to having a new device that will have many more years of update support.
