This is the iPhone 14 plus it's basically the Big Vanilla model of the iPhone 14 lineup it's for people that want that larger form factor but find the pro Max a bit outside of their budget I'm will for GSM Arena and let's see what the iPhone 14 plus has to offer in our full review

Created a new model for this year's iPhone lineup the iPhone 14 plus its claim to fame is that it's big it's the same size as the pro Max but almost 40 grams lighter the plus doesn't bring the pro-grade features like the new Dynamic selfie cutout always on display latest chipset and high-res Main camera instead there's the vanilla feature set which is mostly recycled from last year's iPhones the iPhone 14 plus has a chipset and Main cam which come from the iPhone 13 Pro Max however the screen refresh rate is only 60 hertz instead of the 120 hertz we see on the more expensive models at least this year does bring autofocus to the selfie cam which is welcome except for the size the plus is just like the regular iPhone 14. the design is the same with a flat glass back rounded corners and flat aluminum frame there's full ip68 Ingress Protection too with water resistance to a depth of 6 meters a larger form factor means you get a bigger display than the vanilla model the OLED display is 6.7 inches the same size as the pro Maxes and pretty much the same resolution too you don't have a high refresh rate here though this means that swiping and scrolling on this screen might feel a bit less smooth than on the iPhone Pro Models or high refresh rate Android phones regardless this screen is quite bright we measured a maximum of around 800 nits with the manual brightness slider the same as on the vanilla iPhone 14. there's no extra boost available on top of that but it's plenty with a pixel density of nearly 460 PPI content looks sharp on

this display and you get the great contrast possible through all that technology their support for hdr10 and Dolby vision and color accuracy is great and while the notch cutout does eat into the usable screen space it's not as big of an issue here like it is on the smaller display of the vanilla model the other advantage of a large size is a bigger 4 323 milliamp hour battery the same capacity as the pro Max for some reason though the battery life isn't quite as great the iPhone 14 plus scored an endurance rating of 102 hours in our proprietary tests that is better than the vanilla model's 90 hour rating but significantly less than the pro Max's 121 hours as usual you don't get a charger with the phone but with a 20 watt Apple adapter we were able to charge the iPhone 14 plus from 0 to 47 percent in half an hour the rest of the package is pretty much the same as the vanilla model there's a pair of stereo speakers for your audio and as you'd expect they are great they scored very good in our loudness test and the sound quality is excellent

The chipset of the iPhone 14 plus is not the latest a16 bionic but it's the a15 bionic from last year's Pro Max which makes it the version which has five GPU cores it may not be the most exciting since we've seen it before but it still provides excellent Benchmark performance on par with last year's iPhone 13 Pro Max especially since they have the same six gigabytes of RAM for storage you get your choice of 128 256 or 512 gigs on board there's no terabyte option like there is on the Pro Models
now let's talk about the interface Apple's new iOS 16. it brings a handful of updates compared to the previous version but nothing too groundbreaking overall the lock screen here doesn't double as an always-on display like it does on the pro Max it's still quite functional

though you can check your notifications and add widgets you can customize several different layouts too and switch between them on the Fly the lock screen layouts can be linked to specific Focus profiles giving you a different look and functions depending on the situation and
now the focus profiles have the additional functionality to connect your email and messaging apps to filter your messages and notifications right from the source plenty of apps have seen upgrades including FaceTime and the wallet app and there's a new region-specific satellite connection you can use it to contact emergency services if you don't have network coverage finally let's go over the cameras both the iPhone 14 and 14 plus have a 12 megapixel main Cam that comes from the iPhone 13 Pro Max while the 12 megapixel Ultra wide cam is identical to the one on the iPhone 13. this year Apple also brings an update to the HDR image stacking tag
now called photonic engine before it was called Deep Fusion in daylight the 12 megapixel photos from the main cam are great there's plenty of detail low noise and natural looking colors the dynamic range is good but not too wide the quality looks just the same as on the iPhone 14 and pretty similar to all of the recent iPhones actually that includes the over processed look you see in fine details like foliage portrait shots from the main cam are very good with excellent subject separation 12 megapixel photos from the ultra wide camera have a solid amount of detail good contrast and accurate colors the dynamic range is again balanced but not too wide unlike some of the other recent iPhones there's no autofocus on this camera and this means you can't use it to shoot close-ups in low light conditions the iPhone 14 plus will apply night mode processing automatically the photos from the main cam are clean looking and detailed with plenty of detail preserved in Shadows light sources are well controlled too low light photos taken with the ultra

wide cam also use in Auto net mode the images have balance exposure and saturated colors but they're still a bit soft and noisy on to the 12 megapixel selfies the front-facing cam has autofocus and is quite reliable and the photos have plenty of detail and nice looking textures and skin tones there's low noise and the contrast and dynamic range are praiseworthy too the iPhone 14 plus can record video at up to 4K at 60fps with any of his three cameras and all modes also feature an expanded dynamic range thanks to the smart HDR 4K videos from the selfie cam are excellent they have low noise and plenty of detail the colors and textures look nice the stabilization isn't perfect but it does a good job ironing out bigger bumps and Shakes 4K videos from the main camera have plenty of detail true to life colors and solid dynamic range we have no complaints here the 4K videos from the ultra wide camera are just as great they're among the most detailed we've seen from this sort of camera overall the stabilization on the iPhone 14 pluses videos is excellent there's optional Eis for all of his cameras and the main cam also has ois there's even a new action mode which offers an extra smooth effect at the cost of some resolution and a narrower field of view

So that's the iPhone 14 plus you get the nice features of the iPhone 14 inside of a larger body with a bigger screen and Battery so could this be a reasonable alternative to the iPhone 14 pro Max I would say sure you do save some cash here but since this phone uses mostly last year's Hardware anyway you could argue that the iPhone 13 Pro Max or is still available is an even better deal for a 10 price premium over the iPhone 14 plus you get an optical zoom camera a 120 hertz screen and better battery life and you'd still be paying 200 Euros less than the asking

The absence of a larger iPhone for the masses has been quite obvious for the last couple of years and it was high time for Apple to answer that call. And it did, in its own way.
