iPhone 12 Pro Max: What is Different in this as compared to iPhone 11?

iPhone 12 Pro Max feels large in the hand. It is considerably larger than the earlier iPhone 11 Pro Max. The resolution has been improved along with the screen size. The weight is the same as the last version despite of having a steel frame and a ceramic coating. The phone does feel luxe when you hold it in your hands.

The new version comes with a flat edge and a very stylish design. The flat edges do make the phone a bit difficult to grip sometimes. You can counter that problem by investing in a good and protective cover.

The camera has been upgraded as well. The new phone has a larger telephoto lens that can do a 12x zoom as compared to the 10x zoom before. This new feature is not even present in the iPhone 12 Pro. The Max version can also shoot in Dolby Vision HDR at up to 60 fps. The additional Lidar sensor gives a sense of depth to the camera. 

Another striking change is that the new Max version comes with a 10% reduction in the battery as compared to the iPhone 12 Pro, although there is not much change in the battery life.

iPhone 12 Pro Max: Detailed Review:

This phone has clearly outsmarted all its rival phones and set a new standard of smartphones. The phone comes packed with the best processor on the market along with a professional-grade camera, stylish design and stunning display. Although Apple has been using the same processor for all its phones in a year, the Pro Max does have better tools that enhance the performance of A14 Bionic processor.


This phone feels quite large in your hand.
It has new squared edges, just like the industrial design of the new iPad Pro range.
The phone offers some mature color choices. The outside frame is a shiny stainless steel finish and the front accent and rear of the phone are available in colors like Graphite, Silver, Gold and Pacific Blue.
The shiny outer rim is prone to fingerprints and you might have to polish it repeatedly.
The design and colors look worthy of their price.
The Siri/Screen lock button are on the left and the volume keys are on the right.
One of the cameras protrude a lot and make the phone unable to lay absolutely flat on a surface.
This phone is the largest iPhone ever made featuring dimensions of 160.8mm x 78.1mm x 7.4 mm. 
There are no charging blocks or Earpods provided in the box now. The phone only comes with a charging cable, which is a USB-C to lightning. You will need to buy a charging block separately.


The display quality of the 12 Pro and Pro Max are identical.
The display is Super XDR OLED display that gives you a clear, bright and sharp screen with excellent colors.
Owing to the thinner bezels around the phone, the Pro Max display is able to stretch further to the edges of the device giving you a 6.7 inch display as compared to the earlier 6.5 inch. 
Although the OLED panel is similar to the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, it is more pin-sharp. The streamed and downloaded content appears more dynamic. 
The Ceramic Shield in all the iPhone 12 range makes the phones four times less likely to crack in case of a fall.
The company also claims the 12 range to be scratch resistant because of the ‘dual ion exchange’ process.
The hardiness of this phone has definitely been improved, but it is still recommended to use it with a cover.
The camera array of the iPhone 12 Pro Max has been upgraded.
These include three 12 MP cameras including standard wide, ultra-wide and 2.5x telephoto zoom. 
The night mode is now available for the ultra-wide sensor and also as the main shooter.
This phone has the best camera till date in all the iPhones.
The new Smart HDR 3 technology looks for different scenes where the photo has been clicked and grabs multiple exposures and stitched them together intelligently to give the best photo.
The night mode can also turn a dark, gloomy setting into a very vibrant and rich one.


The phone has a lightning fast processor – A14 Bionic. It is the first 5nm chip in a smartphone. Apple is undoubtedly commanding lead in the smartphone performance category. 

Final Verdict:

Buy this phone if you need to click great pictures, if you have deep pockets, if you need the fastest performance on the market and if you need to prove your worth to your peers.
