The iPhone 15 is being marketed as a significant upgrade, but in reality, it doesn’t offer much more than the iPhone 14, which was already quite similar to the iPhone 13.
Given the $200/€250/£200 price difference between the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, we believe the base iPhone 15 isn’t a wise purchase for these reasons.
Display quality on the iPhone 15 is inferior. While it has some improvements like the Dynamic Island cutout and higher brightness, the rest of the display remains the same: a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED with a 60Hz refresh rate.
The lack of a 90Hz refresh rate, which is present in the 15 Pro, is a notable drawback.
The performance of the iPhone 15 is only a marginal improvement over the previous A15 chipset.
The 15 Pro, powered by the new A17 Pro chip, offers a substantial boost in CPU and GPU performance, making it a better choice, especially for gaming.Camera capabilities are also a distinguishing factor.
The iPhone 15 has a 48MP main sensor but lacks the advanced camera features found in the 15 Pro, such as the telephoto module, ProRAW image capture, and optical image stabilization on the front camera.
Another drawback of the base iPhone 15 is the slower USB-C speeds compared to the 15 Pro.
The former uses USB 2.0, offering limited data transfer speeds, while the latter supports USB Type-C 3.0, providing significantly faster transfer rates.If cost is your main concern, you can still consider the iPhone 13, which Apple is offering at a reduced starting price of $599/€729/£599.
It’s a cost-effective alternative that doesn’t sacrifice much in terms of features compared to the iPhone 15.
