There are times I think Apple succeeds with products simply because it doesn't trip up as often as its peers. If Google and Samsung are the entitled sports stars who miss practice and occasionally whiff games, Apple is that ruthlessly competent player who rarely stands out, but is always reliable. The iPhone 14 Pro Max may do well simply because there are fewer "gotchas" that hit devices like the Pixel line, or even the Galaxy S22.I bought a 14 pro max, and Pixel 7 pro, and currently was using a S22 Ultra for the last 9 months or so.. I was going to trade in my s22 for the pixel, however, I've had nothing but wifi issues with the pixel so I've sent it back. The 14 pro max has been solid, and what I am using now. I may sell the S22 Ultra shortly.
