Apple has announced a Plus edition of the iPhone for the first time ever: the iPhone 14 Plus. It is not the most sophisticated model in the 14 series, but it is a larger version of the vanilla iPhone 14, with a larger battery and display. Many individuals are asking whether it makes sense to buy this variation instead of the Pro models in the same range. This is why we chose to do a comparison with the Pro Max. However, you may substitute another Plus phone for this new Apple iPhone.
We’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus, which is another intermediate model. A direct comparison is the only way to determine which one is the greatest. So, here’s a comparison of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus and the iPhone 14 Plus’ essential characteristics.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus has a more unique look, I prefer the iPhone 14 Plus. I prefer it due to has greater build quality. It includes a glass back that is covered by Ceramic Shield and an aluminum frame that is water resistant. This phone’s IP68 certification allows you to submerge it in water up to 6 meters deep for 30 minutes without fear of harm. However, many individuals may prefer the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus because of its unique design, particularly the camera module, and the absence of an unsightly notch, which has been replaced by a punch hole located prominently on the display. It is waterproof, exactly like its opponent, but it can be submerged for 1.5 meters without being damaged.
Because of its very high 120Hz refresh rate, the display of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus appears great for gamers. It has a 6.6-inch diagonal AMOLED panel, a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, HDR10+ certification, and extremely high peak brightness, as well as an in-display fingerprint reader for verification. In terms of visual quality, the iPhone 14 Plus appears to be superior. It sports a 6.7-inch diagonal Super Retina XDR OLED display with a Full HD+ resolution of 1284 x 2778 pixels, HDR10 certification, Dolby Vision compatibility, and a peak brightness of 1,200 nits. It lacks a fingerprint reader, but it depends on a more secure way of authentication: 3D face recognition, courtesy of the Face ID technology offered by hardware sensors positioned inside the notch.
Specs & Performance
Despite using a chip from last year, the iPhone 14 Plus offers superior performance owing to the incredible optimization of the iOS operating system. It is powered by the Apple A16 Bionic chipset, which is manufactured in a 5 nm technology and has an octa-core design. The SoC is made up of two Avalanche performance cores with a maximum frequency of 3.23 GHz, four Blizzard energy efficiency cores with a maximum frequency of 1.82 GHz, and a 5-core Apple proprietary GPU with 6GB of RAM and up to 512GB of NVMe native storage. The Samsung Galaxy S22 is available in two variants: one with the Samsung Exynos 2200 mobile platform, which runs at a maximum frequency of 2.8 GHz, and another with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 inside, which runs at a maximum frequency of 3GHz. The CPU varies by market and comes with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of native storage.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus has the most flexible camera. It has a triple rear camera setup that includes a 50MP primary sensor with OIS, a 10MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and OIS, and a 12MP ultrawide camera. The iPhone 14 Plus lacks optical zoom, but it does contain two 12MP sensors with OIS and an ultrawide lens.
According to Apple, the iPhone 14 Plus has the longest-lasting battery of any iPhone. With a capacity of 4323mAh, it also sports one of the largest batteries ever seen on an Apple phone. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus features a larger 4500mAh battery, but the battery life is reduced owing to the presence of the Android operating system. On the other side, it has a quicker 44W charging technology.
Price & Availability
The iPhone 14 Plus has a starting price of Php63,990 (prices vary based on the market), but the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus requires at least Php56,990. Which would you choose?
