I buy iPhone 14 ProAnd, unlike many ardent Apple fans, I have mixed feelings about it. Not getting a review sample I will eventually have to submit again. Not only will I fix a catastrophically broken screen on my device iPhone 11 Pro Max And that made my iPhone. No, I’ll buy an iPhone 14 Pro, maybe in silver or deep purple, but I’m not looking forward to it.
I’m not excited about color: iPhone colors Too boring this year. Deep Purple is fine if you live in a dull iPhone world of black, silver, and gold, but I can’t make myself love it. It’s as if Apple admits that color is only an accent, just a hint of it will peek into whatever case it slaps.
I wish there were some exciting color choices. I would like to see something dynamic, something new. You don’t need neon or pop and flair. I just want something that I haven’t been able to find on the phone in fifteen years. That would be exciting.
A camera to share is not sexy
I’m not a camera enthusiast and not because I expect to be disappointed; I’ve read the reviews (we have the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max Review included), so I know what to expect. A camera with more accurate colors, a bit of sharpening, and some significant low-light handling.
It’s a camera designed for shooting and sharing, as evidenced by the addition of auto focus on the selfie camera. The 48MP sensor accommodates smaller 12MP photos. The new 2x telephoto zoom feature is actually a sensor crop; It’s smart but not a killer feature.
The iPhone 14 Pro won’t make me give up my DSLR, or stop me from wanting a new mirrorless camera. I wouldn’t be more likely to print pictures to hang on the wall. To paraphrase the old saying, the iPhone 14 Pro will be my best camera because it will be the camera I have.
I wish there was more to her. I don’t need DSLR quality – I want something made for mobile. I want to put a really nice macro on the camera because it’s very easy to get close to the phone. I want modes that do more to combine the different lenses that are attached. Having multiple lenses and multiple sensors is one of the best advantages a phone camera has over a full-fledged camera, and despite all the amazing imaging hardware and software in the iPhone’s armament, the setup remains untapped.
Degree by any other name
I’m definitely not excited about dynamic island – It is a redesigned notification bar. Makes the punch-hole camera look beautiful. That’s reason to applaud Apple’s ingenuity, but not reason to be excited.
I’m not excited about new satellite features or auto accident detection, because any situation I actually need to get into would be the wrong kind of excitement.
I will admit that setting up my phone with an extension eSIM Sounds interesting, but that’s because I’m a phone freak who gets paid to get to know phones. No ordinary person should be excited about an eSIM.
Giving up a great phone
A big reason I’m not excited about the iPhone 14 Pro is what I’m giving up. I love those phones, but for all the high-end review samples that pass through my desk, I still have a personal phone I own. I send my personal messages from one device and only one device, the device for which I pay with my own money.
Now, this is Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. I love this phone. It takes the greatest pictures from a million miles away. It feels great and looks sophisticated. Best of all, it always seemed to grab a signal when my iPhone-using friends swore that there was no cellular in the mountains where we spent the summer.
I wouldn’t trade it for a new iPhone, because I respect the S21 Ultra a lot. Apple offers a pittance in the trade for Samsung phones. Old rivalries never die. I’ll sell the phone online instead, and hope to get double what Apple offers for the trade.
So who is forcing you?
apple. Apple is forcing me. I was a Mac OS user from 1992 until this year – when I sold my MacBook Pro. I’ve been an iPhone user since day one, literally. I used iCloud for storage and email, iTunes for my music library, and iPhoto for photos. It’s hard to sync lifetime content to a single platform. I simply accept that it is necessary to keep an Apple device to take me back to the legacy of my digital life.
I also need to connect the way Apple insists on connecting – via iMessage. There are groups of people I know who only use iMessage and iMessage, not just for simple communication. Events are planned and relationships maintained exclusively within the confines of Apple’s walled garden, and I needed a way to get in.
This appears to be a US-specific phenomenon, which is worth noting. I have many friends and family abroad and we use WhatsApp with an equal degree of privacy. It is not a matter of simple SMS messages; It is about a club created by Apple in the United States. Blue Bubble Club isn’t a substitute for messaging – it’s a social network for Apple devices. If you want to get in, you have to pay Apple for the keys. Here I am.
