If having a larger screen and a larger battery is important to you, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is a solid choice as it offers a 6.7-inch display and a bigger battery. However, if you prefer a smaller phone that's easier to carry, the iPhone 15 Pro offers a more compact 6.1-inch display and is lighter, with newer internal components like the A17 chip and Wi-Fi 6e. Both phones have high-quality OLED screens with HDR and a 120Hz refresh rate, excellent cameras, and robust build quality. The iPhone 15 Pro also switches to USB-C, while the 14 Pro Max retains the Lightning connector. Give Feedback

Pocket-lint

Britta O'Boyle | March 2023
"The Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max is not just big in form, it's big in character. There's a refreshed design that's really striking, especially in this larger format, coupled with performance enhancements, battery improvements, camera improvements, the Always-On Display and the Dynamic Island feature. It will be too big for some, but if you're looking for the best iPhone Apple has made to date in the biggest possible format, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is definitely the one - it is excellent."

"The iPhone 15 Pro is the one to get if you want a powerful flagship you can easily use it with one hand. Not only is the titanium design stronger and lighter, Apple made the design smaller with slimmer bezels. You also get very strong cameras with night mode and portrait improvements, blazing performance from the A17 Pro chip and a smart Action button."
