Today, the iPhone 15 series is officially on sale. We also bought this new phone immediately and had a quick hands-on experience. Now let’s share our experience with you.
This time we got the blue version of the iPhone 15, but it looks a bit white. In terms of body size, there is no change in the iPhone 15 this time. The detailed parameters are shown in the figure below:
Although the body size has not changed much, this time the iPhone 15 uses a new fused glass process. To put it simply, color is injected into the glass, and then the glass surface is polished and etched to make the glass surface more transparent.
From a look and feel point of view, the back glass of the iPhone 15 this time has a matte texture similar to that of the previous Pro series. It is less susceptible to fingerprints and is more advanced.
Coming to the front of the fuselage, this time the entire iPhone 15 series uses the “Smart Island”, but due to the 60Hz refresh rate screen, the experience of this Smart Island is not very good (maybe it’s because I’m used to the higher resolution on the 14Pro) refresh rate experience). But no matter what, the look feel, and convenience of Smart Island are much better than pop-up messages.
In addition to Smart Island, the brightness of the iPhone15 screen is also significantly improved compared to the previous generation. The daily maximum brightness has been increased from 800 nits to 1000 nits, and the peak brightness can reach 2000 nits, which greatly improves the look and feel in outdoor environments.
Coming to the bottom of the fuselage, the new USB-C interface replaces the classic lighting, bringing a more convenient charging experience to the iPhone 15. If you have a C-port charger from other brands of mobile phones at home, you can charge the iPhone 15. According to actual measurements, the Cto C chargers with vivo, OPPO, and Xiaomi phones can trigger the iPhone 15’s fast charging of up to 27W.
In terms of imaging, this time the iPhone15 uses a 48-megapixel main camera, and this main camera has an “optical quality” 2x focal length zoom capability. It is the effect of 2X zoom achieved through main camera cropping on the iPhone 14 Pro series last year.
I think this main camera that supports “2x zoom” will greatly improve the imaging experience of the iPhone 15. The “telephoto lens” has always been an essential piece of hardware Apple uses to distinguish the Pro series from the standard version. Many friends buy the Pro series just for the telephoto lens. This time, Apple has used this method on the iPhone 15 to bring a lens that is more suitable for shooting. The 52mm focal length for portraits and landscapes realized that users need a longer focal length. We will also bring you a real-life shooting experience as soon as possible, so stay tuned.
The above is our quick start-up experience with the iPhone15. Time is limited. We will give you a detailed explanation of the battery life and performance experience in the subsequent evaluation content.
In general, this time the iPhone15 series is quite sincere compared to the iPhone 14, even the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12. With the new full-screen design, USB-C interface (although it is only 2.0), an imaging system that supports 2X zoom, and a full-blooded version of the A16 chip, you can even think of it as the iPhone 14 Pro with a 120Hz refresh rate. Although none of them are brand-new technologies, the progress in experience is still visible to the naked eye.
If you are currently using iPhone 13 or earlier models and have a limited budget, then the iPhone 15 is still worth buying. On the other hand, if you really can’t stand the 60Hz refresh rate and your budget is not enough for the iPhone 15 Pro series, then the third-party iPhone 14 Pro (the only Pro series currently on sale on the official website is the iPhone 15 Pro) or even the iPhone 13 Pro. Your best choice.
