Each Apple and Samsung have a clearly outlined design aesthetic, and their newest flagships do not deviate from the trail. In truth, you may hardly inform both machine aside from its predecessor. The most important distinction is the selection of supplies; Apple switched to a titanium chassis with the iPhone 15 Pro collection, and Samsung (clearly) adopted swimsuit. Now, different manufacturers had titanium telephones previously — the Important Cellphone involves thoughts — however no model did it on the scale of Apple (and now Samsung).

This transfer means each telephones have a texture that is completely completely different to the steel-backed designs of years previous. The Pure Titanium variant of the iPhone 15 Professional Max is great to carry and use, and it has a boring luster that appears very understated and chic on the identical time. You will get the telephone in blue and white choices, however I feel the Pure Titanium mannequin is the way in which to go.

One other large change this yr is that the iPhone 15 Professional Max is considerably thinner and lighter — a facet impact of going with titanium. It’s a full 19g lighter than the 14 Professional Max, and that distinction is instantly noticeable while you begin utilizing the machine.

Samsung, in the meantime, hasn’t finished something significant on this space, and although it additionally makes use of a titanium chassis on the Galaxy S24 Ultra, the machine is simply 1g lighter than its predecessor.

Of the 2 units, the iPhone 15 Professional Max has the higher in-hand really feel. Despite the fact that I do not like units with flat sides, the machine has slight beveled edges this time that makes a distinction in every day use. The S24 Extremely is completely different on this space as effectively, with Samsung utilizing a flatter panel than earlier years. That mentioned, there’s nonetheless slightly little bit of a curve to the machine, and contemplating the scale and weight, it’s unwieldy to carry and use.

Weirdly sufficient, I desire the iPhone 15 Professional Max on this explicit space; Samsung must do higher close to weight distribution and the sheer measurement of the S24 Extremely, and while you throw in a case, it simply crosses 260g — I used foldables that do not weigh anyplace as a lot.
