My thoughts on the iPhone 15 Pro
After using it for a few weeks, I can say that this iPhone is particularly wonderful.
The iPhone 15 Pro has been my daily phone for the past couple of weeks, and I’ve got to be honest with you: it’s one of my favorite phones of the entire year.
But what makes it my favorite phone might not be appealing to you or to everyone else.

In the midst of all the chaos of Techtober (the tech community’s shared nickname for October, one of the busiest months for product launches), I don’t have time to plunk out a full 3,200+ word review.
