The iPhone 14 Plus was released on September 7, 2022 in India. The phone has a larger 6.68-inch OLED display with a high resolution of 1284 x 2778 pixels that provide crystal-clear visuals. The base variant of the iPhone 14 Plus with 6GB RAM and 128GB non-expandable storage costs Rs. 89,900 in India.
The iPhone 14 Plus is especially appealing due to its camera and long battery life. In terms of battery life, the 4323 mAh battery outperforms the procedures. Overall, if you’re looking to buy your first iPhone or upgrade your current one, the iPhone 14 Plus could be a great choice.
However, there are some drawbacks in the iPhone 14 Plus that may disappoint you as well. The iPhone 14 Plus, which costs around Rs. 90,000, still falls short of some criteria that will make you wonder whether you should buy it.
Top 3 reasons to avoid iPhone 14 Plus
Here are the top three reasons why you should avoid the iPhone 14 Plus:
60Hz Refresh Rate
It doesn’t matter what’s wrong with the iPhone 14 Plus, but a 60Hz display refresh rate will undoubtedly hurt you because that’s all you get with the iPhone 14 Plus. If you spend around Rs. 90,000 on a phone, you would expect it to have a 120Hz refresh rate display, but that is not the case with the iPhone 14 Plus.
The iPhone 14 Plus has a 60Hz refresh rate, which will undoubtedly disappoint you.
If you half the price of the iPhone 14 Plus, almost every brand offers a display refresh rate of 120Hz or higher in their Android phones. As a result, if you are a gamer or content consumer, the iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Max are far better options compared to the Plus variant.
No Telephoto Zooming Lens
The camera on the iPhone 14 Plus performs much better than any other iPhone, but there is one issue that may bother you if you are a hardcore photographer—the telephoto zooming lens.
The iPhone 14 Plus does not have an optical zooming lens for taking long-distance photos. It does, however, have a 5x digital zooming sensor as well as a 2x optical zoom-out sensor that works reasonably well, but the phone lacks a dedicated telephoto zooming lens. So if you are a hardcore photographer think twice before buying it.
Slow charging speed
Apple offers a 20W charging adapter with iPhone 14 Plus, which is quite enough to charge the 4323 mAh battery in hours. However, when it comes to charging speed, it still stinks. The 20W charging adapter charges up to 50% in 30 minutes but then slows down and takes nearly 2 and a half hours to fully charge the battery.
So, if you are a super busy person who does not have time to wait for hours for your phone to charge, the iPhone 14 Plus is not for you and you should consider other iPhone 14 variants.
