The Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is packed with the beloved S Pen, has me choked because it is very convenient to take notes easily as a journalist who attends various tech events and has to record a huge amount of information on a regular basis.
I’m also part of the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 40MP selfie camera. Images are displayed in warmer colors compared to the 12MP iPhone 14. butI can’t deny that iOS 16 is a beautiful, smooth, and compelling enough mobile operating system to impress my #TeamiPhone.
I recently decided to download one of the best mobile games, Yodo1’s Rodeo Stampede: Sky Zoo Safari, on iPhone 14 during the battery runtime test. Imagine my surprise when a message popped up asking for my permission to access files, like my photos and videos, that aren’t necessary to run the game.
Knowing that the game is also installed on my Galaxy S22 Ultra, I wondered how much data the app has collected from me so far. However, on iOS, Apple tells you right out of the gate that an app intends to track your every move — and you have the ability to decide if you’re willing to allow it.
Apple began implementing app tracking transparency in April 2021, which requires developers to ask users for permission to continue their activities outside of the app. Of course, most people don’t like to be chased. According to data from troubledOnly 15% of users agree to opt in for app tracking.
Moreover, the Apple App Store is indisputably more secure than the Google Play Store. It has stricter audits and audits for application submissions, ensuring that malware and other bad guys slip through the door and infect its users’ devices less frequently. As we reported last year, Google Play Store’s built-in security only recognized 31% of spyware threats.
2. Easy data transfer using AirDrop and iCloud
If I want to send photos to my computer, I can use Phone Link, which allows me to pair my Galaxy S22 Ultra with Windows. However, it needs a lot of work. The app is very slow when it comes to syncing photos. And while I appreciate its ability to display texts from my phone, Phone Link has been known to fail periodically to display notifications.
On the other hand, getting content from my iPhone is seamless with services like iCloud. After logging into my online account, my photos are immediately accessible for download. Hell, I can even download videos too – something a phone link can’t do.
Granted, I can use Google Drive to download photos and videos, but iCloud, which instantly syncs your content across devices, removes the annoying steps of having to select the photos and videos you need before waiting to upload, which sometimes fails for me for an unknown reason .
For ease of data transfer alone, I’m ready to give up my computer and Android for my MacBook Pro and iPhone.
3. Siri dictation is elite
Google Assistant and Bixby wipe the floor with Siri when it comes to entertainment value, sharing, and artificial intelligence, but one thing Siri calls dictation.
Thanks to the new iOS 16 update, using dictation to create texts is smoother than ever. For example, while dictating a text to a friend, I no longer have to interrupt the flow by pausing to add an emoji. I can simply say ‘cry emoji’, and Siri, as expected, will insert a file actual Crying emoji without a hitch. When I try it on my Galaxy S22 Ultra, it will write the words instead of putting in the icons I want. helpless!
4. iPhone has better features for travelers
If you often vacation in places where you can’t speak the local language, in my experience, you’ll be better equipped to deal with language barriers with your iPhone. If you find a sign that you don’t understand, you can simply take a picture of it, long press on the text, and get an English translation. This cool feature, known as Live Text, was introduced in iOS 15. Apple later expanded this feature to include videos (something Google Translate can’t do).
You can also do the same for price tags. It’s easy to overspend in countries if you can’t calculate remittances in your mind. For example, you can take a picture of a price tag that says “5,000 yen” and with a quick long press, you can get a quick conversion of your local currency (in my case, it’s $34.55).
5. Working mode is a great video feature
The Galaxy S22 Ultra might let you record in 8K, which is a nice little feature for YouTube creators, but the iPhone, especially the 14, has indisputably better video features. Cinematic mode is great, but Action mode is where it’s in!
If you are recording any fast-moving activities, such as a salsa dancer or a busy crowd, the motion mode ensures that the videos are more stable. I tested the motion position while recording a set of runs in Central Park, and was impressed by how stable it was (as if I was holding a rack).
Keep in mind I only got the iPhone 14 for review, which doesn’t have Pro perks like the eye-catching Dynamic Island UI, a new 48MP camera, and more. If I had the chance to try out the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, who knows how fast I would have jumped off the Android ship?
