vivo X90 vs iPhone 14: These two smartphones are the latest vanilla flagships from Apple and vivo. Their Pro models (you can check the comparisons of the Pro Models here) are more expensive but if you can’t afford the pros, the vanilla vivo X90 and iPhone 14 are worth considering too. So let’s find out which of them offers more value for money.
Prices | Availability
Apple iPhone 14 is the most expensive of these two smartphones. It has a starting price of $799 for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage model. While the vivo X90 has a starting price of $599 for the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage model. These two smartphones are now available for purchase and you can use the box at the bottom of this post to buy either of them.
Display | Durability
The vivo X90 takes the crown for the best display features. It has a 6.78-inch OLED touchscreen with curved edges, HDR10+ certification, 120Hz, and supports up to 1300 nits of brightness. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 has a smaller display that measures just 6.1 inches with Super Retina XDR OLED, HDR10, Dolby Vision, and 1200 nits of brightness. Though the phone sizes are based on user preference, however, the availability of ProMotion (120Hz refresh) made the vivo X90 a more suitable option.
But when it comes to durability, vivo was stingy and didn’t use premium material for the X90. In contrast, Apple went all out to make the iPhone 14 more durable by the industry standard. It has IP68 water and dust resistance, Ceramic Shield glass, etc.
Speaking of photography and videography, the vivo X90 is more versatile with more lenses. It has a 50MP OIS main camera, 12MP ultrawide, 12MP tele sensor (2x optical zoom), and 32MP Selfie camera. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 has a dual camera system composed of a 12MP OIS main camera, a 12MP ultrawide sensor, and a 12MP front camera.
vivo X90 vs iPhone 14: Performance | Software
The performance of both smartphones is at par. When it comes to the CPU, the iPhone 14 leads. It uses the Apple A15 Bionic chipset, paired with 6GB RAM and 128-512GB of storage. However, the vivo X90 shines more when it comes to the GPU. The X90 is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 chipset paired with 8/12GB RAM and 256/512 GB storage. Thus, when it comes to gaming, the vivo X90 is better.
Software-wise, the iPhone 14 has more advantages. Though it boots iOS 16 out of the box now, Apple is certain to give it up to 5 years of OS upgrades. Unlike the case with vivo which will only give a maximum of 2/3 years upgrade to the X90 that booted Android 13 out of the box.
vivo X90 vs iPhone 14: Battery
vivo X90 has a bigger battery size of 4,810 mAh with 120W fast charge support. While the iPhone 14 packed a 3,279 mAh with a wired and wireless charging system.
vivo X90 vs iPhone 14: Verdict
The iPhone 14 is more durable, and expensive than the vivo X90. If one should go for the vivo X90, one may be able to save up to $200. But even though the vivo X90 is cheaper, the iPhone 14 has more value to offer in the long run than the vivo X90. You can be certain of many years of software support.
