The 2022 Apple Autumn New Product Launch Conference arrived as scheduled, and the iPhone 14 series was officially launched. As a user of Huawei Mate 40 Pro, the author also stayed up all night to watch the “Spring Festival Gala” in the technology circle. By the way, I sorted out some of my views on Huawei Mate 50 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro. I want to know which of the two super flagships is better. How to choose? It’s all in this article.
Let’s talk about the conclusion first: If you like the curved screen, choose the Huawei Mate50 Pro, and if you want the straight screen, select the iPhone 14 Pro; Huawei Mate 50 Pro has more comprehensive image parameters, a larger main camera aperture, and a leading telephoto function;
The author’s above summary of the purchase of these two flagships. Next, the author will analyze the price, screen appearance, image, and comprehensive configuration of the two, hoping to help everyone.
Before the release of the iPhone 14 Pro, all information was very transparent, but the price was the biggest suspense and a point of concern for users.
It can be seen that the starting price of the iPhone 14 Pro is 7,999 yuan. Like the previous generation, the 256GB version is 100 yuan more expensive, but the overall increase is not large.
Regarding the Huawei Mate50 Pro, the starting price is only 6,799 yuan, and the plain leather version is slightly more expensive at 200 yuan, but it does not exceed 7,000. If your budget is in this range, and you want to start a high-end flagship with a brand name, there is no doubt that Huawei is the most suitable choice.
In terms of appearance, there are a lot of color schemes for both. There are 5 kinds of Huawei Mate50 Pro and 4 kinds of iPhone 14 Pro. They are all popular colors, including trendy purple, which is enough to meet consumers’ needs for personalized color matching.
High-end flagships don’t need to worry too much about artistry and materials. Huawei Mate50 Pro uses a middle metal frame and a glass (plain leather) back case, while the iPhone 14 Pro uses a stainless steel middle frame + glass back case. Standard flagship materials are used. The author uses Huawei Mate50 Pro, and the actual texture is still good. Although the iPhone 14 Pro has not been obtained yet, I believe that I will not lose points on this with reference to the iPhone 13 series.
In terms of feel, the Huawei Mate50 Pro is likely to be more popular, not only because it is lighter (in fact, the iPhone 14 Pro is not heavier, only 1g more), but also because the front and rear are 3D curved design, which is more suitable for holding with one hand. In the palm of the hand, the iPhone 14 Pro still has a right-angle middle frame, and the feeling of cutting hands will not be reduced, which is a significant difference between the two in holding.
In terms of screen, the iPhone 14 Pro is equipped with an OLED LPTO screen, which supports 1Hz-120Hz adaptive refresh rate adjustment, which theoretically takes into account power consumption and smooth experience, but whether it has an effect or not can only be known after getting started. In addition to supporting a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz, Huawei Mate50 Pro also supports 1440Hz PWM dimming. Daily reading and watching dramas are indeed more eye-friendly.
This time, the iPhone 14 Pro has changed the design of Liu Haiping and chose a more unique “pill” design, officially called “Smart Island”. Personally, I think this is the most amazing functional innovation on the iPhone 14 Pro. It not only retains the Proactive and 3D face recognition, this is also equivalent to a freely transformable display area, which can display various notification messages, so that “hole digging” is not just “hole digging”; perhaps only Apple can do it.
The design of the Huawei Mate50 Pro is quite satisfactory. It continues the strategy of Liu Haiping and also supports 3D face recognition. However, because of the curved screen, the frontal look and feel are still very open, there is no false touch on the edge, and the visual effect is still in place. Many say that the curved screen is more advanced, and the straight screen operation is more comfortable. This can only be said that it varies from person to person. If you like a curved screen, then choose Huawei Mate50 Pro. If you want a straight screen, you should naturally prefer the iPhone 14. Pro now.
In terms of parameters, the Huawei Mate50 Pro is much better than the iPhone 14 Pro in many aspects, even if the iPhone 14 Pro has been upgraded this time and even abandoned the “ancestral” 12-megapixel main camera and upgraded a larger sensor and aperture, as well as the second-generation sensor displacement anti-shake technology. However, the data on paper is still incomparable with Huawei Mate50 Pro.
First Huawei Mate50 Pro uses a 10-stop adjustable physical variable aperture for the first time, and the maximum aperture even supports F/1.4. In professional mode, the depth of field and the degree of blur can be adjusted by yourself. If you often use the professional method of Taking pictures, the creative space is undoubtedly much larger. Of course, even if you do not use a professional manner, the system will automatically adjust the aperture for you and control various scenes.
Secondly, the Huawei Mate50 series supports 100x digital zoom and has a zoom range of 200X, which is far stronger than the iPhone 14 Pro, at least in telephoto functionality.
As the two most representative flagship mobile phones of their respective camps, the images undoubtedly represent the peak level of current mobile imaging. However, this is the most difficult to compare. On the one hand, we do not have the iPhone 14 Pro. On the other hand, the parameters are not equal to The actual performance; whether it is 50 million pixels or 48 million pixels, it cannot be an absolute indicator to measure the strength of the image.
Huawei’s imaging capabilities are obvious to all, and Apple also “has never won the parameters, and the experience has never lost,” so it depends on our later hands-on evaluation.
In terms of performance, the iPhone 14 Pro brings a newly upgraded A16 processor, directly claimed by officials as the fastest smartphone chip ever. Power consumption is 20% lower than the previous generation. At the same time, this chip also focuses on upgrading the display chip and shooting capabilities, especially the former, which is the foundation to support the smooth dynamic experience of “Smart Island.” “n contrast, Huawei Mate50 Pro has equipped with Snapdragon 8+ processor, which is also based ona 4nm process. Although the performance has improved compared to the previous generation, it is still far from A16. In addition, Mate50 Pro does not support 5G. A big pity; if you need extreme performance and 5G, the iPhone 14 Pro is more worth considering.
Of course, the performance of The Huawei Mate50 Pro is very good. After all, the Snapdragon 8+ is also an excellent chip. The experience will not be a big problem whether playing games or daily use.
In terms of charging, Huawei Mate50 Pro has a built-in 4700mAh battery, which supports up to 66W fast charging and 50W wireless charging; iPhone14 Pro only supports 20W wired charging, 15W Magsafe wireless charging, and 7.5W Qi wireless charging, ObviouslyHuawei Mate50 Pro is fast charging. The advantage is still relatively large. Consumers who care about the charging experience are more suitable for Huawei Mate 50 Pro.
In terms of protection, both flagships support IP68 water resistance; still, the Huawei Mate50 Pro supports up to 6 meters of water resistance, and the plain leather version is also equipped with Kunlun glass, which increases the Huawei Mate50 Pro’s drop resistance to 10 times. However, the super-crystalline porcelain panel of the iPhone 14 Pro also belongs to the category of tempered glass, and it is not easy to compare which is more resistant to falling.
However, there are more cases of accidental failure. It is recommended that users put a mobile phone case on the phone, which is more reassuring than any tempered glass.
The above are the advantages and disadvantages of the two mobile phones. To sum up, the benefits of the iPhone 14 Pro are mainly concentrated in the ultimate performance, lighter and thinner design, a screen that supports adaptive refresh, and the “Smart Island” that I think is amazing. Innovative features: In terms of the Huawei Mate50 Pro, the advantages are mainly concentrated in the hyperboloid body, stronger telephoto image, more creative variable aperture solution, faster charging, and lower price. Take your pick; buy on demand.
Finally, I want to say one more thing. iPhone 14 Pro and Huawei Mate 50 Pro are two very special products. They are both high-end flagships. Balance is their biggest selling point. The longboard is long enough, but the shortboard is not straightforward.
Some unnecessary parameters can be ignored by consumers who like the two brands. After all, the actual experience is the most important thing, and I believe these two mobile phones will not disappoint everyone. Do you think this is true? Woolen cloth?
