iPhone 12 Pros Max Review

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is far more than simply an iPhone 12 Pro large-screen variant. With a 6.7-inch display, this is the largest iPhone display ever. The iPhone 12 Pro Max, on the other hand, plays up to its name in other respects, with a camera that is even better than the original iPhone 12 Pro and a significantly longer battery life.

Naturally you receive the same fast blazing A14 Bionic CPU and 5G connection as all the other iPhone 12 models, but Apple phones are available for you, if you want the best. Is all this worth a $100 more to the standard Pro? Absolutely. In truth it is the finest telephone money for those prepared to pay a premium on the basis of my tests. The biggest question is if you're correct on this large screen.

iPhone 12 Pro Max review: Price and release date

Last November 13, the iPhone 12 Pro Max was released, with a starting price of $1,099/£1,099 for 128GB of storage. A 256GB upgrade costs $1,199/£1,199, while a 512GB upgrade costs $1,399/£1,399.

Regardless of storage, the iPhone 12 Pro Max costs $100/£100 more than the standard iPhone 12 Pro.

It's worth noting that the iPhone 12 Pro Max does not include a charger. A quick 20W charger will set you back $19, while Apple's MagSafe charger will set you back $39. For the most up-to-date savings from stores and all of the major wireless carriers, see our iPhone 12 offers page. If you trade in your old iPhone for an iPhone 12 Pro Max from Apple, for example, you may save up to $525 on the new iPhone.

iPhone 12 Pro Max review: Design and colors

In comparison to the normal iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is a monster of a phone. It's the difference between having a flagship phone you can operate with one hand and having one that you can't.

You receive a considerably larger and immersive display in exchange, which not only puts more material on the screen at once but also provides you a larger keyboard for typing and a tiny movie theatre in your pocket.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max has a better appearance than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. And this is due to the sleek, flat sides of the new phone. My unit was particularly attractive to polished glistening gold in stainless steel. It's the comparable smartphone of gems. But the completion is hurried to collect fingerprints.

Apart from gold, the other color possibilities include the more mundane silver and graphite, as well as the eye-catching Pacific Blue seen on the standard iPhone 12 Pro.

The iPhone 12 Pro still has a large notch, but the TrueDepth camera for Face ID is still quite helpful. I only wish Apple could integrate Touch ID into the display or the power button, like it did with the new iPad Air.

With dimensions of 6.33 x 3.07 x 0.29 inches and a weight of 8.03 ounces, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is somewhat heavier than its predecessor. Apple, on the other hand, decreased the screen's borders, resulting in a bigger display in the same size.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is also more robust this year. On the front, there's a Ceramic Shield display with four times the drop resistance and an IP68 water resistant rating that goes down to 6 meters instead of 4 meters.

iPhone 12 Pro Max review: Design and colors

The iPhone 12 Pro Max's 6.7-inch OLED display is smaller but brighter than the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra's 6.9-inch OLED panel. I loved a burst of colors while watching Stranger Things, which nearly made me forget I was holding a phone.

In addition, the iPhone 12 Pro Max has the most color-accurate display we've ever seen. On the Delta-E test, the panel scored 0.07, with 0 being ideal. The Note 20 Ultra had a score of 0.24.

In our lab testing, the iPhone 12 Pro Max's display averaged 654 nits, compared to 662 nits for the Galaxy. However, in direct sunshine, we found the iPhone's screen to be simpler to see.

The only thing lacking from the iPhone 12 Pro Max is a smooth 120Hz rate, which, as on the current Samsung flagships, would have allowed for smoother navigation and even better gaming. Let's hope for an iPhone 13!

iPhone 12 Pro Max review: Performance

On Geekbench 5, the iPhone 12 Pro Max outperformed the Android competitors, as predicted. Apple's phone scored 4,111 points on the multi-core test and 1,603 points on the single-core test. In comparison, the Snapdragon 865 Plus processor in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra scored just 3,294 and 985.

We put our own video editing skills to the test. The iPhone 12 Pro Max transcoded a 4K movie to 1080p in just 28 seconds, compared to 1 minute and 16 seconds for the Note 20 Ultra.

iPhone 12 Pro Max review: Battery life

One of the biggest reasons to splurge on the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the extra endurance you get from its larger battery.

On the Electronics Monk battery test, which involves continuous web surfing over 5G, the iPhone 12 Pro Max lasted 10 hours and 53 minutes. That’s nearly two hours longer than the regular iPhone 12 Pro, which endured for 9:06.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra was slightly behind the 12 Pro Max with a runtime of 10:26 over 5G, which dropped to 7:59 with the 120Hz display mode on.
