Big, heavy and definitely expensive. What does it offer in return? An equally large and spectacular display and an autonomy of one and a half days. For everything else this iPhone 14 Pro Max is identical to the 14 with its excellent performance, the Dynamic Island and the new cameras.

Packaging and content
In packaging we find only the USB-C to Lightning cable, the pin to extract the SIM trolley (in the US version there is no since it already goes only with e-SIMs) and a sticker.
Design and touch-and-feel materials
THE materials del Pro are different because if front and back we find the same glass with Ceramic Shield for the frame we find steel instead of aluminum, more robust but also heavier. The thickness is 7.9mm and the weight of 240 grams make this 14 Pro Max chunky and heavy and in the hand it feels. The square design, however, helps to make grip.
Yes, finally we can also say it for an iPhone: thealways-on display there is! About the connectivity we find 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, dual-band GPS and, only in the USA, the satellite service to send emergency requests.
The display it’s a OLED LTPO from 6.7 “ with refresh rate a 120Hz, Dolby Vision and peak brightness of well 2,000 nits which has no defects when set to the minimum and is always clearly visible when it is at maximum, even in direct sunlight, the sensor that automatically adjusts it is double. In short, I would say the best display ever seen on the iPhone, on a par with the Samsung tops with the only defect, common to the iPhone 13 Pro, which when it’s really hot goes into protection and reduces the maximum brightness.
Processor and memory
The processor it’s Apple A16 Bionic at 4nm flanked by 6GB from RAM LPDDR4X and 128, 256, 512GB or 1TB of internal memory not expandable.
There battery it’s a 4.323mAh 16.68 Wh which recharges at 20W, 50% in 30 minutes, or wirelessly a 15W.
Autonomy is its strong point, if the 14 Pro with always-on active took me to the evening with the remaining 15%, it does so with even the 40%! Batteryphone.
There telephone part it is excellent both for reception and audio quality, capsule or speakerphone, what is now really anachronistic is the dialer that does not allow quick search among contacts and does not report possible SPAM numbers.
Photo and video
The room compartment is formed from:
- room principal from 48MP with 4in1 pixel binning for bright 12MP shots even in low light, f / 1.8 aperture and OIS,
- room ultra wide angle from 12MP with f / 2.2 aperture and 120 ° FOV field of view,
- 3X telephoto lens from 12MP with f / 2.8 aperture and optical stabilization (OIS).
- LiDAR sensor,
- room front from 12MP f / 1.9.
Top cameraphone, there was no doubt, especially the king of the tip and snaps on the fly and then confirms the improve absolutely for spin the video. Too bad they haven’t introduced the switch between 4K / 60FPS cameras and that the “Action Mode” stops at 2.8K. On the other hand, the quick contour function of the photos is very nice, perfect for creating stickers.
The audio is stereo, well balanced and powerful, the bass is not lacking. What is missing, as usual, is the headphone jack.
Apps and gaming
We certainly weren’t expecting power problems and in fact he runs very well and always is fluid, if already with the 13 Pro I mounted the videos in 4K what limits will this A16 Bionic have? The vibration feedback is excellent, finally also present in the numeric keypad of the phone app.
Let’s start with the most important thing. How much? Let’s start with 1,489 euros of the version 128GB, we move on to 1,619 euros of the 256GB (almost mandatory if you shoot a lot of videos) and then 1,879 or 2,139 euros respectively for versions from 512GB And 1TB. The latter are intended for creators, who maybe run in ProRes, a format that takes up 6GB in just one minute of recording.
Choose him or iPhone 14 Pro? The differences are clear, size and autonomy. The Max is therefore intended for those who see us less closely and want to enlarge the characters without reducing too much the number of contents on the screen, for those who simply watch a lot of multimedia content and maybe don’t have a tablet and for those who need exaggerated autonomy!
