iPhone 14 handset

iPhone 14 review

Made publicly available on 16th September 2022, the iPhone 14 has quickly become one of Apple’s flagship handsets.
The Plus version followed shortly after on 7th October 2022. Both devices exemplify technical excellence as well as effortless style, so it’s easy to see why they’re so popular among high-end mobile customers.
Our iPhone 14 review investigates what sets both the standard and Plus handsets apart from the competition.


The iPhone 14 front and rear cameras are both 12MP for consistent image quality. This is the same on Plus as well as standard handsets.

To paraphrase Apple’s own USP for this product, the iPhone 14 camera offers pro-level capabilities when it comes to taking whoa-level pics! Improved image processing allows for more sensational shots in all kinds of light - especially low light.

Likewise, Action Mode means you get more stable shots on even the shakiest videos. If you want smooth handheld footage of your morning run or simply some cool scenes from a long-awaited hiking trip, the iPhone 14 camera won’t let you down.


Both standard and Plus versions of the iPhone 14 offer 256GB / 512GB storage capacity, so there’s more than enough room to keep the media that matters most to you.

This also includes Apple’s very own iOS 16, with its latest features and apps for a convenient user experience.

Forget memory card slots; these handsets have all the storage you need embedded directly into their processing!


Both models incorporate a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, featuring MagSafe wireless charging up to 15W and Qi wireless charging up to 7.5W - trust us, you’ll have more battery power than you know what to do with!

Charging can be facilitated via USB to computer system or power adapter, depending on your preference, and both devices are fast-charge capable: up to 50% charge in around 30 minutes with a 20W adapter or higher.

Only looking at mobile phones with the best battery life? Well, look no further than the iPhone 14.


Bigger and better than previous iPhone models, the 14 has a vibrant Super Retina XDR display just over 6 inches wide. Also, OLED technology makes it ideal for showing bright whites and true blacks.

The iPhone 14 Plus goes one step further with 21% more screen (6.7 inches), making it supersized but surprisingly lightweight.

What’s great about both handsets though is that high resolution and colour accuracy make everything look sharp and true to life, so no matter what you’re using your iPhone 14 for, you’ll be able to see everything in picture-perfect clarity.


Think an iPhone doesn’t do robustness? Think again!

Tougher than most other types of smartphone glass, the iPhone 14 fuses nano-ceramic crystals - which are harder than most metals - into its build. This gives the glass far greater durability, so you don’t have to worry about the odd accidental knock or drop.

Protection against nicks, scratches and everyday wear and tear is a commitment Apple definitely upholds with both standard and Plus iPhone 14 handsets.

Another added bonus is the update to their internal design, which delivers better thermal efficiency so you can stay on your phone (and enjoy the things you love) for longer.

Extra features

Buying an iPhone 14 standard or Plus also means you get:

  • Support for graphically intense games and augmented reality (AR) apps, providing ultra-fluid feel
  • Emergency SOS via satellite
  • Crash detection, as well as 999 calling and emergency contact update
  • Fun new ways to customise your lock screen!
