But, with competition from Samsung, Vivo, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Google, and Oppo do the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max stand out? Let’s find out in our comprehensive iPhone 14 Pro review. Before we go any further, let’s take a quick glance at the prices of the this variants. To begin with, the main difference between the 14 Pro and the14 Pro Max is that the latter has a larger screen and battery.
The base 128GB edition of the iPhone 14 Pro costs Rs 1,29,900 in India. Furthermore, the iPhone 14 Pro is available in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB capacities, with prices starting at Rs 1,39,900, Rs 1,59,900, and Rs 1,79,900 in India, respectively.

More on Features
The iPhone 14 Pro maintains the same design language as its predecessor, although with a bigger notch and a larger camera bump. Apple keeps the stainless-steel frame with matte textured glass on the back of the 14 Pro. The 14 Pro also has a ceramic protective coating on the screen for added protection. The materials utilized here, in my experience, are incredibly durable and among the toughest on the market.
The iPhone 14 Pro is also dust and water-resistant, with an IP68 rating. The 14 Pro follows in the footsteps of its predecessor’s beautiful design formula. The phone is somewhat heavy, weighing 206 grams and measuring 7.85mm thick, although the changes are insignificant. The button, port, and slider positions are nearly identical. Apple continues to favor the Lighting port over the USB-C port, though this may change in the future.
The display on the iPhone 14 Pro is a 6.1-inch LPTO Super Retina XDR OLED. The panel has a resolution of 1179 x 2556 pixels and a pixel density of 460 ppi. The 14 Pro, like its predecessor, employs Apple’s ProMotion display, which can scale from 10Hz to 120Hz. Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG are supported by the screen, providing a fantastic viewing experience for shows, videos, and movies.
It’s also quite bright, with a peak HDR brightness of 1,600 nits and an outdoor brightness of 2,000 nits. The iPhone 14 Pro is also the first to include an Always-on display, which will benefit from LTPO technology.
Aside from specifications and features, the iPhone 14 Pro boasts one of the nicest smartphone displays I’ve seen. The screen becomes incredibly bright and can be seen clearly in any lighting condition, while the colors appear bold yet true. Furthermore, Apple employs True Tone technology to automatically adjust the display’s color and intensity to fit the light in your area.
Furthermore, gaming on the iPhone 14 Pro’s screen was an utter thrill. Despite the fact that Apple has only recently introduced the Always-on display on the iPhone, I believe it is one of the best ever, presenting a muted version of the lock screen with notifications and widgets.
Even among premium devices, the display on the iPhone 14 Pro stands out. Aside from the stunning display, the most notable feature of the 14 Pro is the addition of the new notch. Apple calls it the “Dynamic Island,” and it goes beyond the standard waterdrop and hole-punch camera cutouts. The Dynamic Island is a pill-shaped notch on the iPhone X that contains the new front camera and Face ID sensor, but it can do so much more.
In terms of performance, there are no compromises here. The A16 Bionic chip from Apple is one of the fastest in smartphones, greatly outperforming the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipsets. The A16 Bionic is a 4nm process chip with a 6-core CPU, 5-core GPU, and 16-core Neural Engine. In addition, the A16 Bionic has one billion more transistors than its predecessor.
And the strong chip has its advantages, since it makes navigation exceedingly smooth, while gaming performance was excellent. The iPhone 14 Pro ran every game I put at it with ease, capable of running Diablo Immortal, Call of Duty: Mobile, BGMI, Apex Legends Mobile, and Asphalt 9: Legends with minimal trouble.
When you spend more than a lakh rupees on a phone, you have high expectations for the camera. And the iPhone 14 Pro does not disappoint, bringing a significant camera boost over the iPhone 13 Pro (Review). The main attraction is a 48 MP primary sensor. It is 65 percent larger than that found in the iPhone 13 Pro. The main camera is joined by an improved 12 MP ultrawide sensor and a 12 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom.
You also receive sensor-shift optical image stabilization of the second generation to help with focusing. Additionally, the iPhone 14 Pro benefits from software updates and a new Photonic Engine powered by the A16 Bionic chip. The Photonic Engine offers improved detail and color reproduction under all lighting conditions.
Finally, the 12 MP front-facing camera has been improved and now includes Autofocus. But enough about requirements; let’s look at some real-world examples. Furthermore, the phone shot images with minimal shutter lag.
