Where the iPhone 13 was still rated with five stars in 80 percent of the reviews, this is only 72 percent for the iPhone 14. The last time an iPhone on Google had so few five-star reviews was in 2017, when the iPhone 8 was rated with five stars in 71 percent of cases. Why is the iPhone 14 such a disappointment among iPhone users?

Few new features with the iPhone 14

According to the researchers, the poor rating of the iPhone 14 is mainly due to the lack of new functions with the phone. The iPhone 13 and the iPhone 14 differ little from each other on paper, for example, Apple has again opted for the A15 Bionic chip and little has changed in terms of design. More was expected from the iPhone 14, so the phone is now seen as a disappointment.

The fact that iPhone users expected more innovation is reflected in the assessment of the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. These phones were indeed well assessed. With the iPhone 14 Pro, 76 percent of the reviews give five stars and with the iPhone 14 Pro Max that is even 80 percent. With the Dynamic Island and the improved camera, these iPhones actually have more new functions.

iPhone 13 Pro Max is best iPhone according to reviewers

All iPhones since the iPhone 4 have been included in the study, which also gives us an idea of ​​what reviewers think is the best iPhone ever. A whopping 86 percent of the reviews rated the iPhone 13 Pro Max with five stars, making it the highest rated iPhone on Google. In second place are the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the iPhone 13 Pro.
