Gamers: don't buy an iPhone 15 Pro (at least for now)

Buy a gaming phone instead

There's been a lot of controversy around the iPhone 15 release lately, with plenty of loyal Apple fans making the jump over to Samsung instead and purchasing the flagship Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra model. Many consumers aren't sure if the latest smartphone is really as great as Apple has implied, and I have to be honest that as a photographer, I have no interest in buying the iPhone 15 Pro Max

What I'd really like to talk about, though, is the reported sub-par and questionable performance of the iPhone 15 Pro when it comes to gaming. In a recent YouTube video uploaded by popular unboxer, TheRelaxingEnd, a game test of the iPhone 15 Pro model uncovered some serious lagging issues and the device seemed to struggle during what should have been a basic Genshin Impact fight.
