It also comes at some cost, as the price it is not pocket friendly. If you desire the best Apple phone that exist, you should go all in for this one. Especially photo enthusiasts and photographers.

A quick review

As earlier stated, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the biggest Apple phone to ever exist. It is the best iPhone out there, even if it comes at a huge cost. The iPhone 12 Pro Max has the same physical features as the rest of the iPhone 12 series. It has a fresh flat-side frame, a more industrial look, but it doesn’t have the best grip like the rest.

Speaking of colors, it comes in premium-looking, hushed colors and this look is boosted by the metal shiny rim that borders the edges.


The iPhone 12 Pro Max might be a little bigger in size that the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but the bezels surrounding the OLED display comes reduced, which helps the size of the screen to increase up to 6.7 inches. This display means images come clearer than ever, and the visibility increased greatly. You can enjoy watching movies on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, as well as see the alphabets on the work clearly.


When it comes to cameras, it will be difficult for any phone to beat the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It comes with three cameras that have all been upgraded, and has an improved image processor. At the rear, you have a camera that protrudes more then what you will find in any recent iPhone. This camera has undergone an upgrade with its 12MP sensor that captures more light and enhances image processing greatly.


When it comes to camera quality, you could say the iPhone 12 Pro Max doesn’t have much on the iPhone 12. But it is still better by some little margins. For aspiring photographers and movie-makers, you will want to cop the iPhone 12 Pro Max with its Dolby vision for recording at 60 frames per second with 4K. For content creators that deal with photos and videos, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is for you.

The HDR feature will also boost your image and video outlook through the good level of brightness and color. However, you will need more storage space for these images and clips.


Still on storage, the iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 128GB base model, which is the least we expect due to the image and video size and quality. You will also enjoy fast downloads, which means you might get more movies and music on your phone. However, the 5G feature might not be in use for a while as most places in the world are yet to have 5G network. It could change in few years though, and that means 12 Pro Max users would be ready to enjoy this network speed.


What about the battery life? If you want to enjoy the best iPhone battery to ever exist, the 12 Pro Max is for you. It lasted about a full day when tested at full charge. If you are the type to use your phone for a long type before charging it, you should get yourself the 12 Pro Max.

To charge this battery, Apple added the MagSafe tech that helps the 12 Pro Max to charge with a magnetic clip. MagSafe is a great addition to the 12 Pro Max and it will only get better with time. More accessories could be added to use this tech, which means you will be ready to use them if you own the 12 Pro Max.

Final Verdict

With all these features on the iPhone 12 Pro Max such as the bigger and brighter display, the improved camera, the increased battery life, and the lovely design – you should go for it. Although, that means you will have to deal with the hefty price and not-so-easy grip.

If you want all these features but with a bit of compromise on the battery level, you could go for the iPhone 12 Pro. It goes for less in terms of price, and there isn’t much of a difference in features, only little reduction in quality. Either way you decide you can trade your iPhone for cash with us and get the one you like most.
