Samsung Galaxy

Foldable phones have taken the world by storm, yet not everyone finds them appealing. Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro proves itself reliable with its shallow center crease and five colors to choose from, plus various cases and MagSafe accessories to choose from.

Samsung cameras produce vibrant and colorful photographs that make great conversation pieces; however, fine details may look artificially enhanced or enhanced in other ways.


The iPhone 14 Pro and Samsung Z Flip 4 are two $1,000 smartphones that take excellent photos, but which is best? That depends on whether or not you prefer foldable phones like an iPhone over more traditional iPhone designs.

Apple device features four cameras: 48MP main sensor, 12MP ultrawide camera with 120-degree FOV and 12MP telephoto lens offering 2x and 3x optical zoom respectively; as well as 10MP front facing camera and an A12 Bionic chip featuring machine learning to enhance low light performance.

The camera capabilities of the new Nexus are truly outstanding, especially in low light conditions where it can shoot photos up to 15x faster than its predecessor. Furthermore, Night mode automatically optimizes image quality based on what scene you are shooting in and is great for capturing night scenes and starry skies.

Samsung’s Z Flip 4 may not compare to an iPhone when it comes to taking high-quality pictures, but it still manages to create captivating photos that stand out. For example, its photo of a bridge features more vibrant saturation compared to that from Apple.

While the iPhone offers more natural tones and higher levels of detail in its photos, as well as having better white balance and less pixelation than its rivals, making it more suited for capturing everyday scenes.

Both phones feature their own operating systems, but the iPhone stands out. iOS’ latest update allows for lifting objects from photographs and an enhanced Lockscreen enables you to personalize your screen with photos and messages of friends or family members. Furthermore, its larger display and more powerful battery are more comparable with that of an iPhone 14 Pro than with any smaller model such as Galaxy Z Flip 4.


Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro is a compact and fashion-forward folding smartphone that folds open like a flip phone. While this may seem like a novelty feature, it actually adds extra features while bringing back memories from yesteryear and making use of cool accessories such as magnetic wallets or HiFi DAC interfaces easier. But does it stack up against its counterpart, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4?

Both phones should offer top-of-the-line hardware and fast processors, impressive cameras, and 5G connectivity; but ultimately it comes down to personal preference – perhaps more people will prefer the unique design of Galaxy Z Flip 4 than traditional bar-shaped iPhone.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 boasts a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED main display and 1.9-inch Super AMOLED cover screen, featuring maximum brightness of 1,200 nits which can be reduced down to 1Hz for power conservation purposes. Furthermore, Samsung’s screen adapts automatically to ambient light using color sensors to automatically adjust its brightness settings accordingly.

As opposed to its Galaxy Z Flip 4 counterpart, the iPhone 14 features a smaller and more traditional design with its 6.1-inch OLED screen and maximum brightness of 1,836 nits – though this can be reduced for conserving power use – plus has LTPO 2.0 technology to lower power usage while dynamically scaling brightness up or down as needed.

Both smartphones have similar RAM and storage capacities, but the iPhone has slightly higher battery capacity at 3,700 mAh. Performance on benchmarks was similar between devices; the iPhone’s A15 Bionic chip contains an extra GPU core that improves graphics performance, while Samsung’s Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 scored 1313 single-core and 4147 multi-core tests on Geekbench 5. Both phones boast high camera quality but Samsung may provide greater benefit with its Dynamic Island feature that displays glanceable info or ongoing activities on your cover screen for easier usage reducing screen time usage.


The Apple 14 Pro and Samsung Z Flip 4 are two of the most advanced foldable phones currently available. Both boast powerful processors, high-resolution cameras, 5G connectivity, sleek designs with unique folding capabilities, powerful processors and unique folding mechanisms – as well as being top-of-the-line choices for those who seek premium mobile experiences.

The Samsung Z Flip 4 features OneUI 4.1.1, an attractive Android reskin that provides many extra features such as customizable clocks and live wallpapers; erase objects in photos; use Smart Boost to get maximum battery use out of your phone; dual camera system and 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED main display with 1.9-inch Super AMOLED cover screen; as well as fast charging capability and powerful battery capacity.

Furthermore, this phone offers more robust build quality as well as Crash Detection and emergency SOS via satellite, plus better multitasking software which displays quick notifications on its Dynamic Island cutout.

Both devices feature front-facing speakers, but the iPhone 14 stands out with its superior sound quality and speaker; its louder and clearer speaker and stereo microphone capture sounds more precisely. Furthermore, its Apple A15 Bionic chip outshines that of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 found in Z Flip 4.

The Z Flip 4 boasts a small circular fingerprint sensor and a unique hinge that allows it to open like a book for convenient use in tight spaces or while on-the-go. Furthermore, this durable plastic design protects against drops while its water resistant feature can keep its contents safe. There’s even an eSIM slot if physical SIMs aren’t needed! However, MagSafe accessories or additional case options are currently unavailable with this device.


If you’re shopping for a foldable smartphone, there are two great choices to consider: Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4 and the iPhone 14 Pro are both reliable choices with similar camera specs at competitive prices – which one would best meet your needs?

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 boasts an even more impressive display than the iPhone 14. Its 6.7-inch AMOLED 2X display is perfect for high-end gaming, designing and streaming. Furthermore, it comes equipped with an external display for TikTok notifications as well as SMS, calls and calls notifications – although this may cause some slight distortion along its central area when looked at closely. Unfortunately there is an invisible shallow crease running along its middle but that can only be noticed under close examination.

Performance wise, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 offers a superior SoC than that found in iPhone 14 Pro. The former boasts more energy efficiency while providing increased processing power and RAM memory capacity; moreover, its battery can charge faster and supports fast charging capabilities.

Camera-wise, the Z Flip 4 outshines the iPhone 14 when it comes to taking photos. Both its wide-angle camera and main camera produce vivid, clear pictures without losing their vibrancy or reality.

In addition, its camera uses Apple’s A12 Bionic processor and offers several software features like Smart HDR and Object Eraser to further improve photo capture quality.

Both phones offer similar features, such as fingerprint scanning and video lighting. Both also include a USB Type-C port for charging purposes and support NFC for mobile payments, though the Apple iPhone 14 Pro offers lower download speed than its competitor and slightly longer battery life. Furthermore, with its IP68 dust/waterproof rating it provides greater durability against drops from 5 feet. In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 only boasts an IPX8 rating which may not hold up against such extreme drops.
