iPhone 15 Review: A Dynamic and Durable Device


I have been using the iPhone 15 for a week now, and I am very satisfied with this device. It is not just a minor upgrade from the previous generation, but a noticeable improvement in design, performance, and camera. Here are some of the reasons why I think so.



  • Display: 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, 1179 x 2556 pixels, 60Hz

  • Processor: A16 Bionic chip, 6-core CPU, 5-core GPU, 16-core Neural Engine

  • Memory: 4GB RAM, up to 512GB storage

  • Camera: Dual 48MP main and 12MP ultra-wide, HDR, Dolby Vision, Cinematic mode, 4K video

  • Battery: 3,240-mAh, wireless and fast charging

  • Software: iOS 17, Dynamic Island feature

Design and Build

The iPhone 15 has a sleek and elegant design that looks and feels like a premium phone. It has an aluminum frame and a color-infused glass back, which are durable and scratch-resistant. The phone comes in five colors: blue, green, pink, silver, and black.

The phone is not too heavy or bulky, and it fits well in my hand and pocket. The phone also has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, which is a nice touch.

The only downside of the design is the notch on the front, which still houses the Face ID sensor and the front camera. It is not very noticeable, but it does take up some screen space.

Display and Sound

The iPhone 15 has a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, which is bright and sharp. The display supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, which enhance the color and contrast of the content. The display also has a 60Hz refresh rate, which is smooth and responsive.

The phone also has a feature called Dynamic Island, which is a small circular area on the top right corner of the screen that shows notifications, battery level, time, date, weather, and more. The Dynamic Island can also be used to access shortcuts or widgets by tapping or swiping on it.

The sound quality of the iPhone 15 is also good, thanks to the stereo speakers that deliver loud and clear sound. The sound quality is rich and immersive, especially when watching movies or listening to music on the display.

Performance and Battery Life

The iPhone 15 is powered by the A16 Bionic chip, which is one of the most powerful processors on the market. It also has 4GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage. The phone runs on iOS 17, which offers a smooth and fast user experience.

The phone handles everything I throw at it with ease, whether it is browsing the web, playing games, editing photos, or streaming videos. The phone does not lag or stutter at all, even when using multiple apps on the Dynamic Island. The phone also stays cool and does not overheat.

The battery life of the iPhone 15 is decent, but not exceptional. The phone has a 3,240-mAh battery that supports wireless charging and fast charging with a USB-C cable. The battery can last for a day of moderate use, but it drains faster when using the Dynamic Island or playing games.

Camera and Video

The iPhone 15 has an advanced dual-camera system on the back: a 48MP main camera and a 12MP ultra-wide camera. The cameras are capable of taking sharp and detailed photos in various lighting conditions.

The main camera has good dynamic range, color accuracy, and low-light performance. The ultra-wide camera has a wide field of view and can also take macro shots with good focus and bokeh.

The video quality of the iPhone 15 is also good, but not great. The phone can record up to 4K videos at 60fps with electronic image stabilization. The videos are smooth and stable, but they lack some features like HDR10+ support or audio zoom.

The front-facing camera on the iPhone 15 is average at best. It has a 12MP sensor that can take decent selfies or video calls, but it is not very flattering or detailed.


The iPhone 15 is a dynamic and durable device that offers a great user experience and value. It has a beautiful design, an amazing display, a powerful performance, and a solid camera system. It does not have many flaws or compromises that other phones have.

The iPhone 15 is not cheap, though. It costs $799 for the base model with 64GB of storage. However, it is still cheaper than the iPhone 15 Pro or the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which are its main competitors.

If you are looking for a standard and affordable iPhone that can do almost everything you need, the iPhone 15 is the one for you. It is not perfect, but it is one of the best phones I have ever tried.
