They are the apple of Apple’s eye iPhone 15 Pro And iPhone 15 Pro Max These models are equipped with more advanced technological solutions every year, but in the case of this year’s standard models, i.e iPhone 15 I iPhone 15 Plus A lot of important changes have also been introduced that have taken these smartphones to the next level. The price has decreased slightly compared to last year’s generation.
So, if you’re wondering if it’s worth it to replace your iPhone with a new model, this is probably your best shot in the last few years.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus – specifications
The standard models are cheaper than the Pro series iPhones, but that doesn’t mean they’re worse. Moreover, this year they have gained many new functions that will definitely be appreciated by all users. The new products introduced have significantly improved the comfort of use, which will be felt daily.
So let’s move on to the details. Both smartphones are equipped with a display Super Retina XDR With a resolution of 2556 x 1179 pixels and 2796 x 1290 pixels for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, respectively. The screen diagonal of the iPhone 15 is 6.1 inches, and in the case of the iPhone 15 Plus it is 6.7 inches. Peak brightness has been increased by 2000 nitsSo there will be no problems seeing the displayed content in very bright lighting conditions.
It is also worth noting that the screen is protected by a layer called Ceramic Shield, which was released in 2021 and works great. Thanks to it, the screen is not scratched and is protected from damage resulting, for example, from Teflon falling on a hard surface.
It’s hard not to mention that at this point Dynamic island, that is, a dynamic field located at the upper edge of the screen, which replaced the indentation called the notch. The advantage of the new solution is the fact that the “dynamic island” changes its shape and size to adapt to the supported functions. From this field you can, for example, start and stop music without having to open the application, or follow route directions sent by Google Maps or Apple Maps. These are just two of the many possibilities that Dynamic Island offers.
Most importantly, turning it on does not exclude the use of other applications in full screen mode. The aforementioned notch was just a notch in the screen on which the front camera was placed. In new models, the lens is somehow integrated into the screen.
It is also worth noting the layout Apple A16 BionicThis ensures high performance in new smartphones. It has a 6-core CPU, a 5-core GPU, and a 16-core neural engine. Interestingly, just a year ago, this chip was used in the 14 Pro series models, which means that we are dealing with very high computing power.
This chip is required, among other things, for operation Dual camera systemWhich these smartphones are equipped with. It is used in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus New main lens with a 48-megapixel image sensor. The default photo resolution is 24MP, but don’t worry – the file size is around 2MB, so you don’t have to worry about running out of storage space quickly. When it comes to photos, Apple has really made great progress.
The second camera is 12MP wide-angle lens with new 2x optical zoom. Using it, you can take close-up photos without compromising on the quality.
It is also a novelty that has caused a lot of hype in the industry media Ditching the Lightning port in favor of USB-C. This is a change that means that if you have an iPhone, you will no longer have to use a special cable that does not fit any other device. The USB-C connector is universal and is installed in modern smartphones, tablets, laptops, wireless headphones and other electronic devices.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus – almost the same, but different
We already know the specifications of both smartphones, but it’s worth mentioning A few words about the practical differences between these two smartphones. There are not many of them, and they are only caused by the difference in the size of both devices.
Apart from the dimensions and resulting size of the display and battery, the other elements of these smartphones are no different. As mentioned earlier, there are some practical aspects worth knowing.
First of all, the dimensions. The iPhone 15 Plus is longer and wider than the iPhone 15, so it won’t fit people with small hands. It is difficult to hold this smartphone in your hand and reach the upper edge of its screen, and this may significantly reduce the comfort of its use for people with small hands. Choice is an individual matter.
Secondly, the presentation. There are slight differences in resolution and number of pixels per inch of screen, but they are so small that they cannot be seen with the naked eye. However, the practical advantage of a larger screen is that You can display the same amount of content at a larger size, or more content at the same size. The “With Plus” model will be useful, for example, for people with vision problems.
Thirdly, the battery. The iPhone 15 Plus case has more space and is equipped with a larger battery. Apple advertises that the iPhone 15 can play video for 20 hours, and the iPhone 15 Plus for 26 hours. As is usually the case, the battery life declared by the manufacturer will not be completely consistent with reality, but the percentage difference must be taken into account, which in this case is 30%. This means that The iPhone 15 Plus’s runtime will be about a third longer than the iPhone’s, which is a big difference.
