If camera quality is paramount to you, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max has a higher-rated camera system, both for still photos and videos, compared to the Motorola Edge+ (2023). The iPhone also has a slightly larger screen and higher screen resolution, which means crisper images and more screen space, but at a premium price. The Edge+, while more affordable, offers more storage space and a higher refresh rate screen, which can result in smoother scrolling and better gaming experiences. The Edge+ also runs Android, providing an alternative to Apple's iOS with more customizable options. If battery life is crucial, both phones offer similar longevity, but the iPhone edges ahead by a small margin. Consider the iPhone 14 Pro Max for its superior camera and display if the price isn't a deterrent, or choose the Motorola Edge+ (2023) for its higher storage, smooth display, and lower cost.

Pocket-lint

Britta O'Boyle | March 2023
"The Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max is not just big in form, it's big in character. There's a refreshed design that's really striking, especially in this larger format, coupled with performance enhancements, battery improvements, camera improvements, the Always-On Display and the Dynamic Island feature. It will be too big for some, but if you're looking for the best iPhone Apple has made to date in the biggest possible format, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is definitely the one - it is excellent."

"Just about everything I want in a high-end Android phone is here. The Edge Plus looks and feels [sic] great, the display is outstanding, performance is rock-solid, the software is organized and helpful, battery life is phenomenal, and it doesn’t take too long to get the phone back to 100% when it does eventually die. The best part? You get all of that for hundreds of dollars less than similar phones from Google and Samsung."
