After about a month of use, I realised the iPhone 15 Pro Max was a big mistake for me. In this video I share why that is and my experience so far, as well as sharing with you what I think would make the iPhone 15 Pro Max better in future. I also answer a few questions on the video quality, camera quality, overall A17 Pro performance, battery and overheating issues. Did Apple fix these problems on the iPhone 15 Pro Max? Is iOS17 finally fit for such an expensive device?

    Your videos get better and better. And I for 1 am glad I've supported you since you started. Amazing Video and production!! You really make me think with your reviews, went to O2 yesterday to get iPhone 15 Pro Max as like you I have up 14 Pro and Apple watch for S23 Ultra, problem is I can't bring myself to leave this phone now, I ended up walking out and sticking with S23 Ultra as I still really feel Apple is stale now, it really needs a massive overhaul like you said, untill then I can't see me going back just now. Keep up the amazing work!! 😎

    Face ID is the best on the market. No company can compare with it. As for the rest I’m enjoying the iPhone 15 pro max with no heating issues at all.

    There is nothing wrong with the iphone 15 pro max. Yes as far as tech goes samsung is putting out better stuff but the iphone is good at what it does. If you want a simple phone thats smooth and takes good pictures and video for social media then the iphone is great for you. If you want a phone thats more of a power house and can do more then rhe s23/s24 ultra is probably more your style. I dont use social media and prefer the s23 ultra but i understand why someone would want an iphone. I just dont like using them.

  4. P Rana

    I upgraded from X max to 15 Pro max and I love it. Brilliant phone ❤

  5. Still using my oneplus 7pro, was gifted samsung s21 plus ,one ui animation to me is still awful,dropped it and still using my one plus 7pro,hopefully this dec,will be getting the 14pro max,samsung should work on their gestures and animations

  6. Noctis Yic

    I like The Dynamic Island, very creative way to make use of the space. And it has to be there because of the camera and Face ID sensor?

  7. naresh lal

    Apple has minimalistic approach now…if u want to have more productivity u need Android….no doubt on that

  8. Adam Orellana

    Thank you for the Black Keys throwback! I used to love that song and I got chills hearing it again.

  9. Tonia Mc Caskill

    Ive carried one samsung and one iphone for a few years now simply because the iphone camera produces some of the best portrait photos on a cell phone. The s20 ultra came so damn close then in one camera update made it trash. Samsung has really stepped up otherwise in their creativity, wide variety of phones and tablets are sick with multitasking. I get by doing 90% of my daily tasks on a samsung device and 10% on iphone or ios. A real split screen for multitasking on an iphone would be nice. 🪽

    The only thing I don’t like about my 15 pro max was the data signal. Sucks

  11. usachatnow

    The Dynamic Island will prevent be from upgrading. I’ll stick with the 13 pro max until they get rid of it

  12. Bruce Klein

    Apple steals a lot from Samsung, and they are still behind when coming to multi-tasking and other things still.

  13. Brian Stone

    iOS. Haven’t been hitting that good lately. And can we please fix the iPad and I just a new ones but the old ones how you gonna treat the one that’s one year prior to the M1 like trash?! Yes I do have a M1 but they lying is no way that they can’t do everything that the M1 can do with six gigs of ram

    When every other computer, I know with six gifts or even four, does just fine with multitasking and displaying video on the screen.

  14. GrizzlyBear

    160 comments in 10 hours. That says a lot about your videos. I love that they're chill, relaxed. None of that mrwhosetheboss bazzaz that makes you dizzy. And not too techy like MKBHD. Please stay down to earth without bs.

  15. Damn Alex your videos look like A1 Grade commercials wow your editing is no.1 on YT in my book obviously I love your reviews too keep it up mate 👍🏻

  16. Sergio Goncalves

    Awsome review. I have to say you’re one of the very few youtubers where I don’t just forward the video into some part. it’s not just the video production value, it’s also the quality of the “script” and the way you express your opinions! Great work! Um abraço de Portugal!

    Car Comparison…
    You've got the 2014 Gumpert Apollo S.
    It's fast, it's got ok handling.
    It's got a, powerfull and reliable Audi 4,2L V8.
    Overall, it's a good hypercar.
    However..it looks ugly as fu(k!!!!!

    It's absolutely non customizable! No choises!
    Can't even move, adjust the seats!
    Nothing whatsoever.
    And the price…💥
    And this is exactly what the iphone 15 series is!!!

    As Basil Fawlty once said: "A waste of space!"😉🤙

    And then there's the Pagani Zonda F.
    Looks stunning!
    Fast, reliable AMG engine.
    Quality and choises, customization.
    Multiple choices! It's just Superb!!!
    Priced high like the Gumpert (awfull name btw), but still..for what you get it's worth it.

    And that's the Galaxy S23 Ultra!

    You catch my Drift?

  18. Nabokovcoffee

    Proper file management, split screen is a must at this point.

  19. Anze Kralj

    I would love to have 15 pro max 🥰 So Alex if you don't know what to do with 15pro max i am the first in line for a give away 🥰🥰🥰

    The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max along with the BMC app has been game changers for me. I was able to get both due to insane deal my provider gave me for trading in two phones (old Samsung and iPhone SE) that I rarely used and really despised. These have suddenly changed my whole workflow and streamlined it. In some cases the iPhone 15 Pro with the 3X is the best choice and the Pro Max with 5X is a poor choice when you are doing video work. Everyone has to make their own choice based upon their work.

  22. Toretto

    Wow 😮 Really Strong Words Mate BUT IT NEEDED TO BE SAID. BRAVO 🙌🏾
