iPhone 14 Plus vs iPhone 14: How are the two Apple phones different?
When size matters
For ‘non-Pro’ users, the difference between an iPhone 14 and an iPhone 14 Plus comes down to either choosing an entry-level iPhone or a large entry-level iPhone. But it's one we're glad we're able to make. Gone is the bite-sized iPhone mini, and in its place is the new iPhone 14 Plus, which looks like a magnified version of the iPhone 14. With the Plus variant going on sale tonight, let’s look at how the two new iPhones differ.
Design and Display
The iPhone 14 Plus looks like the iPhone 14, which in turn mirrors last year’s iPhone 13. The biggest difference is clearly the size. Besides the dimensions, the iPhone 14 Plus – at 203 grams – is a tad heavier than the iPhone 14 (172 grams).
In terms of the display, you get a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens respectively. As for the tech, there’s no Pro Motion, which continues to be reserved for the Pro iPhones. Instead you get a Super Retina XDR OLED display with 60Hz refresh rate, 1,200 nits of peak brightness, and Ceramic Shield protection.
Apple has stuck with the A15 Bionic chipset, which was introduced last year with the iPhone 13 series. That said, on the iPhone 14 models, Apple has included an extra GPU core and improved cooling.
Storage also remains the same with three options – 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. Both iPhones get the Crash Detection and satellite-powered Emergency SOS safety features introduced this year.
Owing to the iPhone 14 Plus’ larger form factor, there’s more real estate on offer, which has been suitably used by Apple to add in a bigger battery. There’s a 4,323mAh unit powering the Plus variant, which is bigger than the 3,279mAh unit powering the iPhone 14. While real world figures remain to be seen, it is clear that the battery on the iPhone 14 Plus will last a day or two depending upon one’s usage.
Both iPhones share the same camera configuration – two lenses at the back, and on up front. At the back is a pair of 12-megapixel wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses. For selfies, there’s a 12-megapixel camera. One big difference though is what Apple calls Photonic Engine. This is basically a fancy name for image processing with a particular focus on getting better low-light shots.
The bigger size brings with it a slightly bigger price tag. iPhone 14 Plus Prices for the start from Rs 89,900, and go up to Rs 1,19,900. The iPhone 14, on the other hand, is priced between Rs 79,900 and 1,09,900. In essence, the smaller of the two iPhones costs Rs 10,000 less than its larger brethren. Both share the same colour options – Purple, Blue, Midnight, Starlight, and (PRODUCT)Red.
If you have to choose between the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus, it’s the size that matters the most. Both devices share the same design and set of specs and features. The Plus variant, as the name suggests, comes with a bigger display and a bigger battery. The choice then comes down to a matter of preference.
