New Macbook pro 14" vs 16" model

Now that Apple has released the new 14" and 16" MBP, I am looking at updating my 13" 2015 MBP. I am looking at a model with these features: Apple M1 Max with 10-core CPU, 24-core GPU, 16-core Neural Engine, 32GB RAM and a 1TB SSD.

You can get these features in either the 14" or 16" size.  The price is quite close (around 6% more for the 16" model).  The only differences I can see are: the larger screen (and more pixels) and a bigger battery. Plus, the 16" weighs more.

Am I missing any differences? Does the choice just come down to preferences for a larger screen vs a lighter laptop? Even though the 14" would be easier for travel, it's hard to accept a smaller screen when the prices are so similar.
