Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max Review

The appearance of each generation of iPhones is traditionally eagerly awaited. Millions of users around the world are interested in both the presentation itself and the start of sales. In 2020, along with the iPhone 12, Apple's largest model was introduced - the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It is very similar to the iPhone 12 Pro, but differs in its size and display, battery capacity and camera parameters. Let's look in detail at its characteristics.

Design

iPhone 12 Pro Max completely repeats the appearance of the iPhone 12 Pro, but is larger. Its dimensions are 160.8 x 78.1 x 7.4 mm. The smartphone weighs 228 grams. Its frame is made of metal, and the front and back are made of glass. Like we said, this is the biggest iPhone. It surpasses the famous Max and iPhone 8 Plus in size. At first glance, it is clear that the iPhone 12 Pro Max will not fit in every pocket. Even people with large palms may not be able to work with it with just one hand.

On the back of the iPhone 12 Pro Max we see a matte panel that looks great. Protection against water and dust according to the IP68 standard is provided. The new color is called Pacific Blue and will become a favorite of many. Depending on the light around you, it slightly changes its shades.

Display

The main reason for the increase in the case is obviously the screen, whose diagonal in the iPhone 12 Pro Max is 6.7 inches. The resolution is also higher, with a pixel density of 458 inches. The frames around the screen are visible, but this does not negatively affect the overall impression. A distinctive feature of the display of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the nanoceramic coating of the protective glass. According to the manufacturer, it is 4 times more resistant to falling.

Apple has taken care of the safety of its users this year as well. The iPhone 12 Pro Max has TrueDepth sensors that support the Face ID feature. The smartphone scans the face of its owner and thus you may not enter a password to unlock the system, pay cash or access certain applications.

Productivity

As with the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, an A14 Bionic processor is installed in combination with 6 GB of RAM and 128, 256 or 512 GB of internal storage. With 5G the situation is also repeated, but not everywhere this modification will be present.

The speed of the iPhone meets the expectations of a modern flagship device. The graphics run perfectly, applications load quickly, photos and videos are processed instantly, and more.

Cameras

One of the advantages of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the cameras, which this year differ slightly from those in other models. The smartphone is equipped with 3 cameras that have received a resolution of 12 MP, the aperture of the main camera is ƒ / 1.6, the ultra-wide angle - ƒ / 2.4, and the telephoto module - ƒ / 2.2. The optical zoom in the iPhone 12 Pro Max is 2.5 times. Specific to the main camera is that it is capable of capturing more light and has improved stabilization.

As a result, with this iPhone you will enjoy wonderful photos day and night. From the first frame you will have a decent result, and this will definitely appeal to everyone who follows you on social networks.

With the new stabilization system, video recording with the iPhone 12 Pro Max is even easier.

Autonomous work

Given the dimensions of the device and its screen, battery life is definitely an issue that excites. The battery capacity of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is 3687 mAh. Tests show that it offers a run time of 40 minutes less than its iPhone 12 Pro counterpart and much better results compared to smaller iPhones.

This Apple smartphone works with induction charging stations, you can also charge it via a computer.

Conclusion

iPhone 12 Pro Max is a large iPhone that you will have to work with both hands to fully enjoy it. On its huge display you will be happy to work with any content. The good news is that Apple's engineers have tried to improve its battery life.

Pros:

  • Beautiful and memorable body
