Surprisingly, the device’s temperature remained within acceptable limits for a game of this caliber. While it did get warm, it never reached untouchable hot levels, ensuring a comfortable gaming experience even during extended sessions.

Stunning Graphics

The iPhone 15 Pro Max delivered a visual feast with graphics comparable to high-end PCs. The level of detail and realism in Death Stranding was truly impressive, showcasing the device’s capability to handle demanding gaming content.

On-Screen Controls

One major drawback was the on-screen controls. Despite the powerful hardware, the gaming experience was hindered by the limitations of on-screen controls. The lack of freedom, fixed positions, and interference with on-screen text made the gameplay less enjoyable. Exploring workarounds or an option to switch to a display-only mode would greatly enhance the gaming experience.

On the positive side, the iPhone 15 Pro Max demonstrated exceptional performance with zero lag. The powerful internals of the device ensured a smooth and responsive gaming experience, contributing to the overall enjoyment of the game. You’d think there’d be some level of performance drops due to thermal throttling or any other matter but that doesn’t appear to be the case based on my experience.

Control Frustrations

Unfortunately, the frustration with on-screen controls overshadowed the gaming experience. After around 15 minutes of gameplay, the cumbersome controls became a significant impediment, detracting from the joy of the game. Finding a way to switch to display-only mode could potentially alleviate this issue and enhance the overall user experience. Alternatively, a mobile game controller would help immensely.

In conclusion, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max showcases impressive capabilities in handling high-quality gaming content like this one, the limitations of on-screen controls need addressing. A seamless and intuitive control scheme is crucial to fully unlock the gaming potential of this powerful device.
