If battery life and camera are priorities for you, and you're open to Android, consider the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, which has a slightly longer battery life and an overall camera quality that is very close to the iPhone 15 Pro. The Galaxy S22 Ultra also has a larger screen, which might be beneficial for multimedia consumption and productivity tasks, but it is heavier and has a curved screen which can be a matter of personal preference. However, if you prefer iOS and are looking for slightly better camera performance, the higher-priced iPhone 15 Pro is a strong choice with its powerful A17 processor and consistent build quality. Keep in mind that both devices offer 5G support, high refresh rate displays for smoother visuals and are made of glass, which allows for wireless charging. Give Feedback

Tom's Guide

Mark Spoonauer | September 2023
"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."

Android Authority

Eric Zeman | February 2023
"The Galaxy S22 Ultra is a bit of a “greatest hits” compilation of Samsung’s best ideas from former devices. Moreover, it packs much of the same productivity-enabling software as previous Note devices coupled with the power of the S Pen while keeping the total package reasonable in terms of cost. The phone has more features, more cameras, and more software to put to use than many competing phones. It’s a hardcore device that nearly has it all."
