Novelty? Yes I’m here. Price increase? Yes, there is that too. iPhone 14 Pro arrives with new cameras, a new color, the new A16 chip at 4nm and a new display for the first time with the hole for the front camera, indeed, it is called Dynamic Island and is the demonstration of how Apple is able to make pleasant or even useful elements that are normally just something bad to see. In short, whether you love it or hate it, iPhone 14 Pro has arrived and net of specific uses, it is the best phone on the market at the moment. Today I’ll tell you ..

Packaging and content
There packaging We now know Apple well .. besides the iPhone we find only the USB-C to Lightning cable and an apple sticker.
Design and touch-and-feel materials
THE materials of the Pro are glass and steel instead of aluminum, compared to which it is more robust but also heavier. The thickness is 7.9mm and the weight of 206 grams but in the hand it holds well, the dimensions are the right ones and the grip is there.
Yes, finally we can also say it for an iPhone: thealways-on display there is! About the connectivity we find 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, dual-band GPS and, only in the USA, the satellite service to send emergency requests.
The display it’s a OLED LTPO from 6.1 “ with refresh rate a 120Hz, Dolby Vision and peak brightness of well 2,000 nits which has no defects when set to the minimum and is always clearly visible when it is at maximum, even in direct sunlight, the sensor that automatically adjusts it is double. In short, I would say the best display ever seen on the iPhone, on a par with the Samsung tops with the only defect, common to the iPhone 13 Pro which when it’s really hot goes into a sort of protection and reduces the maximum brightness.
Processor and memory
The processor it’s Apple A16 Bionic at 4nm flanked by 6GB from RAM And 128, 256, 512GB or 1TB of internal memory not expandable.
There battery it’s a 3,200mAh 12.4 Wh which recharges a 20W, 50% in 30 minutes, or wirelessly a 15W. It might seem small, but combined with the new 4nm A16 chip and the optimization of iOS 16 the result is excellent, it reaches the end of my stress day with still the 25/30% or with the 15% if we keep the always-on active.
Software and ecosystem
iOS 16 presents several novelties of which we have already spoken but the real news here, both hardware and software, is there Dynamic Island. Apple has managed to make what would be a classic ugly hole in the display into something pleasant or even useful. Useful because this “island” that expands and adapts to the notifications that arrive or to the main info of the applications that run in the background shows information that was not shown before or in any case makes it accessible only with a touch acting as a shortcut.
There telephone part it is excellent both for reception and audio quality, capsule or speakerphone, what is now really anachronistic is the dialer that does not allow quick search among contacts and does not report possible SPAM numbers.
Photo and video
The room compartment is formed from:
- room principal from 48MP with 4in1 pixel binning for bright 12MP shots even in low light, f / 1.8 aperture and OIS,
- room ultra wide angle from 12MP with f / 2.2 aperture and 120 ° FOV field of view,
- 3X telephoto lens from 12MP with f / 2.8 aperture and optical stabilization (OIS).
- LiDAR sensor,
- room front from 12MP f / 1.9.
Top cameraphone, there was no doubt, especially the king of the tip and snaps on the fly and then confirms the improve absolutely for spin the video. Too bad they haven’t introduced the switch between 4K / 60FPS cameras and that the “Action Mode” stops at 2.8K. On the other hand, the quick contour function of the photos is very nice, perfect for creating stickers.
The audio is stereo, well balanced and powerful, the bass is not lacking. What is missing, as usual, is the headphone jack.
Apps and gaming
We certainly weren’t expecting power problems and in fact he runs very well and always is fluid, if already with the 13 Pro I mounted the videos in 4K .. Excellent feedback of the vibration, finally also present in the numeric keypad of the phone app.
We come to the painful notes. How much? iPhone 14 Pro starts from 128GB And 1,339 euros but the most balanced cut in my opinion is the 256GB and it costs 1,469 euros. However, it must be said that if you want to record videos using the Pro Res, 6GB per minute, the 512GB becomes mandatory and we still go up to 1,729 euros. Yes, that’s a lot but, if not for specific uses, he’s the best phone on the market. In the sense, if you want the pen then S22 Ultra is the top, if you want a foldable Fold and Flip 4 are the top but for everyday use at 360 °, as a creator or not, iPhone 14 Pro is the best. Lots of 200 euro smartphones allow you to get to the end of the day without major problems but in the end it’s like saying from A to B you get there in Ferrari and also in Panda. Is there a little innovation missing? Nì ..
