I WAS one of the many people eager to purchase the new iPhone 14 series as soon as it became available, as I rely on my phone more than my laptop when outside of the office or travelling.

The excitement with having an iPhone is comparable to the desire of many women to own a Louis Vuitton, Gucci, or Yves Saint Laurent bag, but my preference for the iPhone is based more on practicality than on symbolism.

I bought the new iPhone Pro Max on my existing Globe postpaid plan. I got SM MOA Globe’s first and only deep purple iPhone Pro Max 512GB. Unfortunately, the one with 1 terabyte of memory was still out of stock, so I had to settle for the one with less storage space.

Until I got my hands on my very first iPhone, an 11 Pro Max, I was not an iPhone fan like my daughters. From that point on, there was no turning back for me.

The iPhone’s capacity for fluidly switching between applications impressed me greatly. Also, it can produce completely impromptu motion pictures, which is a nice bonus. I have compiled a library of short films for posterity’s sake.

There is no other phone that I am aware of, that has that capability. The superiority of its memory is undeniable. I am relieved that I no longer have to worry about space limitations when amassing a sizable media library. Likely more media content exists on my iPhone than anywhere else on the planet. There are 57,809 still images on my phone, along with 13,893 screenshots, 1,534 selfies, and 4,613 videos. Amazing!

Unfortunately, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a reputation for heating (I never had such a problem with my other iPhones). A member of the SM MOA Globe staff helped me figure out why my new iPhone was heating up. Since then, I haven’t had any more issues. For the time being, the only problem I’m experiencing is a slight image shake whenever I’m reading Facebook notifications.

The iPhone’s features extend far beyond the advantages I’ve cited. Apple says the new iPhone 14’s camera has a larger sensor and pixels, a front TrueDepth camera, an Ultra Wide camera, and a Photonic Engine for dramatically enhanced low-light performance.

To be honest, I’m not very tech-savvy, so I can’t tell the difference between this and my other iPhones. Apple also says if you drop your phone in the water, it can “withstand about 19 feet for up to 30 minutes underwater.”
