Here’s Why You Should Choose iPhone 15 Over iPhone 15 Pro
1. Dull Colour Variants
In contrast to the vibrant colour options that are available in the iPhone 15, the iPhone 15 Pro variants come in dull colour variants like natural titanium, blue titanium, white titanium and black titanium. Industry experts opine that the titanium colour of the smartphones is on the account of the titanium finish that the iPhone Pro models feature.
2. Same Storage
The iPhone 15 Pro features a 48MP camera that can capture ProRAW images and is capable of shooting 4K/60 FPS ProRes videos. These functionalities necessitate a significant amount of storage space. However, the pro models come with the same 128GB storage which might restrict the full utilization of the camera’s capabilities.
3. Notable Upgrades in iPhone 15
Apple has made significant improvements in the iPhone 15 by adding a 48MP primary camera and a Dynamic Island layout which was initially featured in the iPhone 14 Pro. Display enhancements make the device capable of delivering a remarkable 2,000 nits of brightness, ideal for outdoor visibility. The iPhone 15 starting at ₹79,900, seems like a more compelling investment compared to its Pro version if one is ready to sacrifice the ProMotion and a 5x telephoto camera system.
4. Apple’s Software Upgrade Policy
Apple’s primary goal is durability which relies on a robust software support system. Apple’s software upgrade policy ensures that major iOS software updates are accessible to all iPhone users for a minimum of five years. This eliminates the need for an iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 13 user to switch to an upgraded model of the iPhone given that the existing model is suffice to cater to their requirements.
5. Similar Charging Speed
The iPhone 15 Pro doesn’t align with the approach taken by some Android phones, which utilize USB-C connectivity to attain quicker charging speeds. According to a report from Tom’s Guide, it seems that the iPhone 15 Pro continues to adhere to the familiar 20W charging speed that Apple has employed for a considerable period.
