IPHONE 14 PRO VS SAMSUNG GALAXY S22 ULTRA: DESIGN

Samsung continuously adds some recognizable color combinations with its S22 Ultra smartphone. In addition to it, S22 Ultra has fully replaced Samsung's Note Series by including a dashing S Pen Stylus with it. It has signature sharp edges, glass, and metal sandwich design with Corning's tough Gorilla Glass Victus on both front and back.

There are four color options for the iPhone 14 Pro: Deep Purple, Silver, and Space Black. The camera hump on the back has only slightly increased in size, but the Pro versions no longer have a notch in favor of what Apple calls Dynamic Island. The TrueDepth camera and privacy indications are located here, and it can extend to become a notification area for things like connecting your AirPods, seeing what music is playing, knowing when your cab will arrive, and other things.

IPHONE 14 PRO VS SAMSUNG GALAXY S22 ULTRA: CAMERAS

We all know iPhones are known for great camera but the new iPhone 14 Pro Max comes with something new too. The latest iPhone 14 Pro Max offers extreme stabilization in your videos so that you can create your own film without any difficulties. This new Apple iPhone has a triple camera setup, similar to iPhone 13 Pro Max but with 48MP quad pixels camera sensors while in low light, you can expect great images and videos from its dual 12MP sensors.

The primary camera's f/1.78 aperture, the ultrawide camera's f/2.2 aperture, and the 12MP 2x and 3x telephoto cameras' f/1.78 and f/2.8 apertures all have better low-light performance. Although there is a new 2x zoom option, the maximum optical zoom remains at 3x.

A major selling point for both of these phones is their cameras. With a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 108MP wide camera, and two 10MP telephoto cameras, one with 3x optical zoom and the other with 10x optical zoom, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra retains the same lenses as its predecessors. A 40MP front-facing camera is also available for taking selfies. While the hardware hasn't changed, the software has, thanks to a fantastic new Portrait mode, Night Mode shooting that is considerably enhanced, and amazing AI-powered optimization. Additionally, the program offers a 100x Super Zoom, which is an extremely amazing non-optical zoom.

IPHONE 14 PRO VS SAMSUNG GALAXY S22 ULTRA: PERFORMANCE AND BATTERY

Depending on where you live, the Samsung is powered by either the Exynos 2200 or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. You may choose between 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, or a massive 1TB of internal capacity. There is no microSD expansion slot, unlike earlier Samsung models. The Ultra runs Android 12 with Samsung's One UI and has a 5,000mAh battery with up to 45W cable charging and 15W wireless charging.

The 6-core A16 Bionic, which powers the iPhone 14 Pro, is said to be 40% faster than the nearest rival. The high-performance cores utilize 20% less power than the A15 while the 5 GPU cores have 50% greater memory bandwidth than before. The operating system is the new iOS 16, and Apple hasn't yet disclosed information about the RAM configuration. You may select between 1TB of storage and 128, 256, or 512GB of storage. As usual, Apple advertises "all-day battery life" and offers two charging options: MagSafe or Lightning.

IPHONE 14 PRO VS SAMSUNG GALAXY S22: DISPLAY

This time around, the refresh rates are adjustable from 1HZ to 120Hz, enabling that amazing always-on display. The iPhone 14 Pro Max's 6.7-inch display is brighter than before - up to 2,000 nits outside and 1600 nits peak HDR - and this time around, the brightness is up to 2,000 nits. It has the aforementioned Dynamic Island and thinner borders than before.

The Samsung Galaxy Ultra S22 sports an exquisite 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X Edge QHD+ screen with a maximum brightness of 1,750 nits and adjustable refresh rates that range from as low as 1Hz to a smooth 120Hz. It has an always-on display, just like other Samsung products over the past few years.

Winner: IPHONE 14 PRO VS SAMSUNG GALAXY S22

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is perhaps the best flagship phone for Android fans, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is the best iPhone to date if you prefer Apple's philosophy. This is more about ecosystems than individual phones. While Samsung has the more capable cameras on paper, Apple's computational photography is superb, and both versions are comparably priced, powerful, and clever.

With the condition that because the review units are only now being distributed, we haven't had a chance to put the iPhone 14 Pro Max through a lengthy test yet, we're going to declare this one a tie. Therefore, we'll hold off on making a definitive decision until we can compare the two phones' cameras in-depth.
