  1. Well, let's be surprised, things often turn out differently than you think 😜
    I'll probably swap my 13 Pro Max for the 15 Pro Max or Ultra.

    1. There is only one argument for me to buy. The periscope camera. I'm still happy with my 12 Pro Max. Still have over 3% battery power after 90 years. And I find the pricing at Apple for new iPhones really cheeky. The periscope camera is new territory for Apple. You have to look again first to see whether there aren't the HW or SW problems that Apple now often have with new products. The Apple of today is no longer the Apple of yesteryear. This is of course also due to the increasingly complex applications.

      1. Yeah same for me. I'm not even sure I'll even buy the iPhone 15 Pro Max. It is always a risk to buy the 1st generation of such a technology.

  2. Well, then an alternative would be the Google Pixel 8Pro. In any case, their periscope camera in the 7 Pro is great. And the pricing isn't as exorbitantly outrageous as Apple's.

    1. Sure, value for money is certainly good, but entrusting all my data on the smartphone to Google... hmmmmmm. Rather not.

      1. Hi Jens,
        my wife works for an international pharmaceutical company with headquarters in Switzerland and their complete (!) corporate communication AND company data, including research, are carried out with Google tools and are hosted on Google servers - and have been for years. In this respect, I am convinced that the data is also secure with Google.

        1. Yes, I can understand that that can be an argument to trust them. But I think basically Google's motivation is to collect data, because that's what they live on. Apple thrives on services and hardware sales and has no vital connection to data collection. That's why I trust them more. But everyone can decide for themselves. I would also miss the Google Phone's integration with my rest of the Apple stuff. And I've had an Android in my hands (a phone I got as a gift) and I'm not warming to the operating system.

          1. yes jens This one “Apple thrives on services and hardware sales and has no vital connection to data collection.” is certainly correct. Also I have Apple iPhone and Mac Book Pro and Apple TV. But I'm starting to find Apple's pricing extremely borderline. The price/performance ratio is no longer correct in my eyes. I'm currently typing on a new Android tablet which is working perfectly. And the Google Fire Cube for watching TV also runs perfectly and is absolutely comparable to the Apple TV. I will almost certainly switch to the Google Pixel 8 Pro in October. The 7 Pro, which I tested for four weeks in the spring. had me fully convinced, especially the camera. Nevertheless, I will take a look at the iPhone 15 max ultra in September if the price is below 1500€ and give it a chance.

          2. Hello Bernd! Absolutely, I can understand. I thought about getting a Pixel phone just for photos, but for the money you can get decent cameras with larger sensors. So I'll just stick with Apple.
