If having a superior camera is important to you, the iPhone 15 Plus offers a sizable improvement, especially for photography enthusiasts. It also has a larger screen, which can be an advantage if you enjoy watching videos or gaming on your phone. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 Pro is lighter and more compact, which might be preferred if you like a phone that's easier to handle and carry. Battery life is an area where the iPhone 15 Plus has an advantage, so if you find yourself often needing to recharge your phone during the day, you might appreciate the longer lasting battery of the 15 Plus. Both phones operate on iOS and share many features, but the iPhone 15 Plus is also newer, which usually means a longer potential lifespan in terms of updates and support. Give Feedback

Android Authority

Dhruv Bhutani | October 2021
"The basic foundation of the phone is rock solid and essentials like UI navigation, apps, security, and privacy features are polished to a sheen. The camera works consistently well and takes some of the best pictures you can get out of a phone. The phone further embellishes it with performance that won’t have you reaching for a replacement for years, and the battery life is hands-down amongst the best you can get on a flagship. If you’ve been eyeing an iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro is as good as it gets."

Eric Zeman | October 2023
"Apple's iPhone 15 Plus is the phone to get if battery life and budget are your top concerns. It outlasts the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro, coming in second only to the top-shelf Pro Max. Otherwise, it includes a larger display than the standard iPhone 15, the same speedy processor, a fine pair of cameras, excellent wireless radios, and a waterproof build."
