Display Comparison

As with most Apple generations, there is a sizeable difference between the standard iPhone 14 and its Pro counterpart.

The entry-level iPhone 14 remains largely unchanged from the previous generation, showcasing nearly the same 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with a 2532x1170 pixel resolution at 460 ppi.

Don't get us wrong, it still offers a fantastic viewing experience that rivals a large majority of smartphones out there, providing faithful colours and silky smooth transitions, even with its standard 60Hz refresh rate.

However, you don't quite gain the Always-On display and Dynamic Island feature as found in the 14 Pro, which removes that pesky notch previously covering the front camera while bringing your phone to life with handy updates and alerts on your screen. Read more about how to access the Always-on display here.

This is also alongside the Pro's improved peak brightness, reaching about 1000 nits in standard lighting conditions—200 nits higher than the more affordable iPhone 14, allowing an overall better viewing experience.

Verdict: While the display on the regular iPhone 14 is great, it's always best to go with the Pro edition if you have cash to spare.

Refurbished iPhone 14 Vs iPhone 14 Pro: Design

Measurement-wise, they're both pretty much the same, with the iPhone 14 being slightly smaller in height and depth than the Pro edition by a few mm.

The more substantial difference can be seen in their design, with the Apple iPhone 14 Pro featuring a shiny stainless steel frame instead of the standard edition's aluminium, which helps improve overall durability to withstand daily life without a case for protection.

The standard iPhone also comes with a shiny glass back instead of the Pro's matte frosted glass finish. Whether you love it or hate, it's all down to personal preference. However, if you're someone who likes their phone without a case and gets easily annoyed by fingerprints, then it's best to go with the Pro variant.

Verdict: Although the standard edition comes in a fantastic design, we'd highly recommend the refurbished iPhone 14 Pro if you want some added finesse.

iPhone 14 Vs iPhone 14 Pro: Camera System

The Pro edition also comes with a substantial camera upgrade over the standard variant.

Both the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro feature a 12MP ultra-wide camera, used for macro photography when taking expansive scenic shots without moving an inch. Plus, you also gain camera app features like Night mode, Portrait mode, and more to allow you to adapt each photo to the situation at hand.

Yet, that's where the similarities end between the two iPhone models.

As expected of a flagship Apple phone, the Pro variant features significant upgrades in its rear cameras, including in the 48MP main camera and a 12MP telephoto lens, which outperform the standard edition's dual-camera system for taking everything from normal to up-close shots.

In the iPhone 14 Pro, you also receive additional camera upgrades like Night mode portraits and a few extra optic zoom options, enhancing your photography with clearer images in low light while offering more flexibility in framing your shots.

Verdict: The Pro edition is the clear winner in this case.

Performance Comparison

The iPhone 14 and 14 Pro also come with powerful processors that outperform both the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (as in Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra) and the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 (in the Galaxy Z Fold 4) in various tests. Read more here.

This means that both phones can handle multiple everyday tasks without any issues, including multitasking on the move or playing your favourite game at night.

But again, the Pro edition takes everything a step further by outperforming the more affordable variant in both single and multi-core benchmarks, ensuring even smoother performance and faster processing speeds for all your needs.

Plus, you also gain slightly more battery life with the iPhone Pro, lasting up to three hours longer in video playback than the standard iPhone 14.

Verdict: Although both offer fantastic processing power, it's still best to go with the Pro edition if you're someone who often uses their iPhone for high-demanding tasks.
