Apple iPhone 15 Pro long-term review

GSMArena Team, 19 April 2024.


It's been seven months since the launch of Apple's premiere smartphone. The iPhone 15 Pro has been in regular service with us every day since then, put through the daily grind just like any other phone. We didn't even bother putting on a case just to see how that titanium holds up, even though we had Apple's fancy new FineWoven case at hand.

At this point, the iPhone 15 Pro needs no introduction. It's the phone you get when you are either seemingly made out of money, have been part of Apple's ecosystem for years, or want a break from Android (while also being made out of money). And we wouldn't blame you for it; the 15 Pro, along with its Max, variant was listed in six out of ten of our top phones of 2023 lists across all our editors so clearly Apple was onto something this generation.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro long-term review

That something doesn't have to be any one particular thing but rather a combination of several things done at once. After all, you wouldn't want your expensive flagship device to just be excellent at one thing and mediocre at others. Being an all-round impressive device is really what you should be hoping for after paying that much and few smartphones do it as well as the iPhone, especially in the Pro range.

So with that out of the way, let's see what the iPhone 15 Pro does so well in a way that makes it the crowd favorite while also unpacking the less savory things that you only learn after living with something for months.
