The vivo X90 Series is now official, and it contains the first flagship equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. The Vivo X90 Pro Plus is the first flagship with 2023-like features, and it is a fully loaded gadget in every way. That is why it is a fantastic competitor for the iPhone 14 Pro Max: the most sophisticated Apple gadget available. These phones are reasonably priced, but which is the best? There is no uniform solution, and it is mostly dependent on your individual requirements. So, you need to assess their characteristics and features in order to realize which one meets your demands the most. Here’s a comparison of the specs of the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the vivo X90 Pro+ to help you comprehend it.
Different Look, Both Premium
According to current trends, there cannot be a more intriguing device than the iPhone. Apple removed the notch for the first time with the iPhone 14 Pro Max, replacing it with the Dynamic Island: essentially, a pill-shaped punch hole put in the center of the upper half of the screen. It not only houses the hardware sensors for the front camera and 3D facial recognition, but it may also function as a secondary screen for displaying basic information. The iPhone 14 Pro Max features a glass back and a stainless steel frame, and it is IP68 certified, making it waterproof (to a depth of 6 meters) and dustproof. It is more water resistant than the Vivo X90 Pro Plus’s IP68 certification, which allows it to travel underwater for up to 1.5 meters without being damaged. However, the Vivo is still a stunning gadget, with a leather option and eye-catching hues, as well as a curved screen with extremely thin bezels.
AMOLED vs Super Retina
On paper, the Vivo X90 Pro Plus offers a better display. It has a size of 6.78 inches, a Quad HD+ resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz (it is adjustable from 1 to 120 Hz thanks to the LTPO 4 technology), Dolby Vision compatibility, HDR10+ certification, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a peak brightness of 1,800 nits. The iPhone 14 Pro Max, on the other hand, is on the same level owing to its excellent color reproduction. The iPhone boasts a 6.7-inch diagonal Super Retina XDR OLED display with a resolution of 1290 x 2796 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, HDR10 certification, Dolby Vision compatibility, and a peak brightness of 2,000 nits. It does not use a fingerprint reader for identification, but it does use the more secure Face ID technology for 3D face recognition.
Camera & Battery Performance
The camera arrangement on the Vivo X90 Pro Plus is far superior to that of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It has a 50.3-megapixel primary camera with laser autofocus and OIS, a 64-megapixel periscope sensor with 3.5x optical zoom, a 50-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom for portraiture, and a 48-megapixel ultrawide camera, all with OIS. A triple camera of 48 + 12 + 12 MP is included with the iPhone.
The Vivo’s battery is larger, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a longer battery life due to iOS optimization. The X90 Pro+, on the other hand, charges faster owing to 80W fast charging and 50W wireless charging.
Processor, Storage & OS
The iPhone 14 Pro Max and the Vivo X90 Pro Plus have the greatest hardware departments that a phone on the market can provide. However, the iPhone 14 Pro Max outperforms the competition due to improved optimization provided by the iOS operating system. The iPhone features an Apple A16 Bionic processor with a maximum frequency of 3.46GHz, 6GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of native storage. The Vivo X90 Pro Plus is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform with 512GB of native storage. It ships with Android 13, which is modified by Origin OS or Funtouch OS depending on the location.
