Apple’s new iPhone 14 lineup is finally here. But how do Cupertino’s latest phones compare with those in Samsung’s GalaxyS22 family? Let’s dig into what each flagship lineup bring to the table to help you figure out which phone is best for you.
iPhone 14 vs. Galaxy S22: Price
An essential factor to consider when choosing a phone is how much it costs. You want to feel like you’re getting a good value for your money, especially if you’re directly comparing two phones.
Unfortunately, price can’t help you choose between the base iPhone 14 and Samsung Galaxy S22 because each starts at $799 and offers 128GB of storage.
If you move up to a larger screen size, however, you can save a bit of money with Apple: The iPhone 14 Plus starts at $899, whereas the GalaxyS22+ goes for $999. Both models offer 128GB of storage.
Moving to the top-of-the-line (and largest) phones, the iPhone 14 Pro Max starts at $1,099 for the 128GB model and the Galaxy S22 Ultra starts at $1,199 for the same amount of storage. If you want the performance of the Pro Max with a smaller screen, you can get a 128GB iPhone 14 Pro for $999.
So if you’re looking for a bigger phone or a top-end model, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max are slightly more affordable. You won’t see a dollar figure difference with the base models, however.
iPhone 14 vs. Galaxy S22: Design and Durability
You probably already know whether you like the look and feel of Apple or Samsung phones better. There’s no wrong answer here because all the phones in each lineup are visually appealing and available in plenty of colors. However, if you don’t like notches on your phone screen you probably won’t like the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus because they both still feature that design element. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, on the other hand, include Apple’s new Dynamic Island, which offers a more distinct look and useful OS integrations. None of the S22 models have a notch, though they do have small circular cutouts for the selfie cameras.
