Recent smartphones have the particularity of becoming more and more expensive, sometimes with a price equivalent to that of a laptop. This is particularly the case with the latest iPhones, especially since Apple products are rarely on sale. However, this is currently the case with iteration 14.
Despite the skyrocketing prices of the latest smartphone models and the lack of innovation compared to the previous model, the iPhone 14 is still an excellent smartphone and even one of the best on the market. If there is a change to report, it is at the level of repairability, which has been improved and therefore extends the useful life. The launch price is certainly higher than 1,000 euros in its basic configuration, but it is well below this symbolic bar thanks to a discount of 210 euros.

Apple iPhone 14 at the best price?
A premium smartphone, but it smells like heat
The iPhone 14 has an air of deja vu to it, and for good reason, it’s pretty much a copy-paste of the iPhone 13, but with a few new features nonetheless. The GPU is slightly more efficient with its additional core or even a slightly improved photo mode with the addition of autofocus and a main sensor with a better aperture. As for the design, it is the same as that of the iPhone 13 to the millimeter and we even find the notch. It is above all in its improved repairability that the iPhone 14 obtains its added value.
The 6.1-inch screen is a Super Retina XDR OLED panel with a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels and a high pixel density of 460 ppi. On the other hand, the refresh rate is stuck at 60Hz, which is a shame when you have smartphones of the same generation with a frequency of 90Hz, or even 120Hz. True Tone mode saves the day a bit, thanks With this technology, the brightness and colorimetry of your screen automatically adapt to your environment.
The power of Apple, always excellent
As for performance, we are left with Apple’s A15 Bionic chip. Although it is not the A16 Bionic reserved for the Pro and Pro Max models, it does not make much difference since the iPhone 14 will fulfill everything you ask of it without grumbling. However, it is true that this SoC is starting to get out of date when we look at the competition side, we think in particular of the new Samsung Galaxy S23 and its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Unfortunately, on the photo side, the iPhone 14 turns out to be be a bit disappointing.
Native software has been carried over to iOS 16, making the user experience more enjoyable than ever with the addition of ultra-intuitive features. Especially since it will continue to benefit from updates for a few more years, so you are making a lasting investment when you buy this smartphone. Finally, a quick word on battery life, once the downside of iPhones. During our test, it was measured at 48 hours of average usage – it’s just huge!
Clearly, the iPhone 14 is an excellent smartphone, although the Pro and Pro Max versions are still more interesting in terms of functionality, the comfort of use is still far superior compared to what is coming.
