So I upgraded from my iPhone 12 Pro to an iPhone 14 Pro. Here’re my takeaways after 1 day:
The camera module is huge. There’s a perceptible slope to the phone when lying flat. The phone looks stupid without a case. Like it has sprouted a tumour.
But the cameras take very nice macro images. Will get creative with this in the days to come.
It is and feels heavier than 12 Pro. I am glad I didn’t get the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which I almost did. My little finger is already suffering.
FaceID is noticeably faster.
The dynamic island is cool. Even the parts with the FaceID sensor and the camera are touch sensitive. Hope more apps develop cool features for it.
Although, the notch on the older iPhones had become invisible to me, I still can’t un-see the dynamic island. Also, the Dynamic island sits a bit lower on the screen compared to the older notch, so app content starts even lower. This change is just barely perceptible.
The always on display is cool. Time will tell how much battery it uses up.
The display is cooler (as in colour temperature). I think my iPhone 12 Pro Display was unnecessarily warm.
The 120Hz display difference is visible, especially during screen animations and when using the 12 Pro.
Will sell the iPhone 12 Pro once my eSIM situation is sorted out, hopefully in March 2023.
