Neither the regular iPhone 14 nor its larger version, the iPhone 14 Plus, became hits with buyers – the older iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are selling significantly better. But in a series of drop tests conducted by Allstate Protection Plans, the iPhone 14 Plus outperformed the line’s flagship.

The iPhone 14 Plus may not be the most popular in the lineup, but in at least one way it is better than the iPhone 14 Pro Max.  iPhone 14 Plus proved to be more durable in a series of drops

Allstate Protection Plans (formerly known as SquareTrade) is a mobile device insurance company, so it can hardly be accused of being biased. The tests simulated the most typical falls of devices – from a height of human growth (180 cm). Phones were thrown both with the screen down and up, exclusively on a hard surface.

Both of them crashed, but the damage to the iPhone 14 Pro Max turned out to be stronger. This is especially true of landing on the rear panel, the consequences of which were called “catastrophic”: the glass was not only completely broken – it practically spilled out. In addition, the camera unit of the phone was badly damaged.

Allstate Protection Plans also tested phones for durability when dropped on a side edge. In this case, the damage to the iPhone 14 Plus was minimal: a few abrasions in the corners. The iPhone 14 Pro Max, in addition, cracked the back panel, the buttons and the camera unit were damaged.

And while the testers note that both phones remained operational, the iPhone 14 Pro Max was more fragile. In terms of durability, it is no different from the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro. Well, the big damage to the iPhone 14 Pro Max is explained by the fact that its body is made of more malleable stainless steel, while the body of the iPhone 14 Plus is made of aluminum.

It seems that the Tecno Phantom X2 smartphone will indeed receive the largest camera module among all devices on the market. Or at least he seems to be.

A giant camera module that takes up almost half a smartphone.  A photo of Tecno Phantom X2 has appeared

A photo of the device appeared on the Web, where you can see a giant block located in the center of the upper part and occupying a huge area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe back cover. In addition, he looks very unusual.

The image quality leaves much to be desired, and one might think that this is just someone’s imagination, but the fact is that back in October this device was listed in the FCC database with exactly the same design. Of course, this does not mean that the existing photo is not a fake, but at least this is the design that a smartphone should have, since the data in the controller database cannot be false.

Earlier, Tecno also said that this smartphone will receive SoC Dimensity 9000, that is, it will be the company’s first flagship-level device, at least based on the platform. The source also talks about a 6.8-inch curved 120Hz AMOLED screen.

It’s about the platform. The Realme novelty was announced with the latest SoC Dimensity 1080, the same device will appear in India, but at least in some countries in Asia, the smartphone will be based on the Dimensity 920 for some reason.

When in some countries the smartphone is worse than in others.  Realme 10 Pro + in some markets will receive a different platform

Recall that Realme 9 Pro + is based on this SoC, that is, the new smartphone will not be better than the old one. True, in fact, the difference between the Dimensity 920 and 1080 is minimal, so in practice it can hardly be felt. But still, technically, we are talking about the fact that in some countries the Realme 10 Pro + will be worse than in others.

Recall that the smartphone is also equipped with a curved screen with a very thin frame, a 108-megapixel camera and 67-watt charging.
