If camera quality is a priority, the iPhone 15 Plus offers slightly better photo and video quality than the iPhone 14. For those who need a longer battery life, the iPhone 15 Plus also has a longer battery duration. However, the iPhone 14 is more affordable while still delivering high-quality camera performance and adequate battery life. The screen size on the iPhone 15 Plus is larger, which might enhance your viewing experience, but this also makes the device bigger and heavier. Both phones operate with iOS, have OLED screens, and offer similar brightness and resolution, but the iPhone 15 Plus has a higher peak and typical brightness. The iPhone 15 also has a newer processor, which may provide slightly better performance. Consider the iPhone 15 Plus if the camera, larger screen, and longer battery are worth the higher cost; otherwise, the iPhone 14 presents a more budget-friendly option with slightly lower performance in certain areas.

TechRadar

Lance Ulanoff | October 2022
"The iPhone 14 is a capable smartphone with a seriously snappy CPU, lovely screen, and good cameras. The iPhone 14’s camera array is better than the iPhone 13’s, and will make most mobile photogs very happy. It also lasts more than a day on a single charge. This isn’t the fastest or most feature-rich iPhone, but it’s light, fast, and attractive."

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."
