Here’s why I am skipping the iPhone 14 Pro Max07.09.2022
Apple will announce the iPhone 14 series at its September 7 event. Over the past year, we’ve heard many rumors about the phones, particularly the Pro models. Since I switched to iPhone full-time, I am just as excited as everyone else.
Since last year, my iPhone 13 Pro Max has been my daily driver. I love its power, 120Hz display and amazing cameras, not to mention the incredible battery life. Since September last year, one thing has been bothering me: the bulk.
Although I have large hands, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is not a phone I would choose ergonomically. It is difficult to use the device with one hand due to its large 6.7-inch screen and sharp edges. This frustrates me greatly. This handset has been a love-hate affair, although it is mostly on my love side.
Despite my large hands, I don’t like large phones ergonomically. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is definitely one of those phones.
It should not surprise me that the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro is my favorite, provided Apple maintains the same screen dimensions. The smaller form factor is great, especially considering that there should be feature parity between Pro models as last year (we hope).
They should both have 120Hz refresh rates. Apple is unlikely to do the same with the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The latter will get a higher optical zoom (2x versus 2x), and sensor-shift stability.
I am more excited about the iPhone 14 Pro than any other phone, except perhaps the Pixel 7 Pro. Apple continues to make the most compact handsets, both the non-Max Pro and regular iPhone. It’s something I for one am happy for and it’s sure that many others are, too.
Some people don’t want a huge smartphone, but others do not want to compromise on features or power. The OnePlus 10 Pro, for example, has a 6.7 inch display but is smaller and more manageable than the iPhone.
You can bet that I will get the Pro when the iPhone 14 is released. I cannot wait to get a smaller phone.
