The iPhone 15 Pro is the Best iPhone Ever

I wasn’t planning to review the iPhone 15 Pro this year and mainly because I didn’t think people were still interested in the iPhone anymore, but I was wrong. After watching countless TikTok’s of the long queues in Dubai and then similar long queues in Kuwait of people lining up to get their hands on the new iPhone, I realized, people still care a lot.

Full disclosure, I have a long-standing relationship with Xcite who provided me with this iPhone to review. They’ve been very supportive from the very early days of the blog and I’m a huge Xcite fan.

I’ve been using the phone for over a week now after upgrading from my iPhone 13 Pro, and to be honest, it doesn’t feel any different. This isn’t a phone that’s going to make Android users want to switch over, and it also isn’t a phone that’s going to make existing iPhone users run out and buy one.

But, this is the best iPhone ever made.

People complain about Apple’s incremental updates but I don’t understand why they make it sound like it’s a bad thing. The new iPhone is faster, has a better screen, better camera, better battery life, is lighter, and now even has USB-C. It’s better in every way compared to the previous iPhone but that doesn’t seem enough.

I tend to want to upgrade to a new phone because of the camera which I use a lot for my blog. I do have my Fuji X100V always nearby, but the iPhone’s standard 28mm and the ultra wide lens tend to be more useful than my Fuji’s 35mm and the iPhone is always on me while the Fuji isn’t. So any extra bit of improvement in the camera is always beneficial for me.

So, should you upgrade?

I upgraded from an iPhone 13 Pro and didn’t really notice much of a difference overall. If a friend with a 13 Pro asked me if they should upgrade, I’d tell them they didn’t have to. On the other hand, if you’re an iPhone Max user, the weight difference alone might be worth the upgrade. A friend who uses a Max felt a huge difference moving to the 15 Pro Max.

In any case, as of right now it’s still difficult to get a hold of an iPhone 15 Pro in the color and size you want from an authorized reseller. So good luck with that.

You don’t understand why people are upset at small incremental changes? Because the competition does groundbreaking things like foldable devices, rollable screens, satellite calling on demand, etc… I’m an apple fanboy and will continue to be because android is just not secure, but I am not happy at how slow and incremental things have been lately.

What you described as “groundbreaking” isn’t groundbreaking, they’re gimmicks and nobody is buying those devices. People don’t care about foldable or rollable screens in the same way they didn’t care about the curved edge display. Satellite calling on demand even I don’t know what that is and so isn’t something people know of or care about. But, Apple does provide that for emergency situations. Nobody is breaking any new ground with phones, they’ve his a plateaux so all you’re getting from everyone is these incremental updates (for example compare the galaxy this year vs last year or the Pixel).

I own a tech business that deals with Apple & Android technologies. I used to be an Android user ive been with Apple for several years now. To correct you, Androids are more secure than Apples. Thus why i am most likely switching back to Android.

It’s gonna sound lame but USB-C and specifically the transfer speed. I got a thunderbolt cable and moving photos off my phone onto my iMac is now instant.
