During the 12th series of iPhone’s launching ceremony on 13th October 2020 December, iPhone 12 Pro Max was the eldest of all. Along with iPhone 12 Pro Max, three other iPhones were also revealed. i.e. iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12, and iPhone 12 Mini. The iPhone 12 Pro Max price starts at $1,099 and is available in Nepal at the starting price of NPR 185,990.
It is the model to grab if you can carry a bulky phone and spend even a hefty budget. But still, people are bewildered to choose among the iPhones of the 12th series. Here we are trying our best to make you more explicit about what different features iPhone 12 Pro Max offers.
iPhone 12 Pro Max Overview
iPhone 12 Pro Max is the biggest iPhone of all the time. It has a great screen, massive battery, and enhanced camera. If you are looking for the iPhone to have all the best things, it is the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It also has 5G on board. However, the Pro Max has a significantly less gap with the iPhone Pro in the cameras’ performance. Still, the camera quality is the deciding factor to choose between iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max aside from the size.
Design and Build Quality
The bezels around are shrunken to give a larger screen of 6.7 inches. It has an OLED screen of 1,284 x 2778 pixels protected by the new Ceramic Shield. Similarly, the screen supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision content.
The most awaited 120Hz refresh rate is yet to arrive; instead, Apple focused on bringing the 5G feature. On the other hand, it has a 120Hz touch sampling rate. It also offers excellent color accuracy even at the 2nits.
The display on the front has a thin bezel and notches housing the selfie camera, Face ID tech, earpiece, and sensors. There are volume keys, SIM tray, and silencer on the left, while the power key is alone on the right side.
Likewise, you get a mouthpiece, lightning port, and other stereo speakers on the bottom. The top is neat and clean. The rear camera on the back is present inside the square module, just like in iPhone 12 Pro.
iPhone 12 Pro Max weighs 228 grams, the heaviest iPhone ever. It is available in four color variants: Silver, Graphite, Gold, and Pacific Blue.
Apple offers only the Face ID and has no intention of providing a fingerprint sensor.
Powering the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the Apple A14 Bionic chip, while the GPU is also Apple’s 4-core. The performance is impressive across the system. The new 16-core NPU is 70% faster in AI performance. Pro Max has 6GB of RAM and internal storage of 28GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The processor in the 12th series is the most powerful of all.
The Pro Max provides a better cooling system and less throttling for gaming.
All the iPhone 12s have iOS 14.1 pre-installed, while the iOS 14.2 will be already waiting for you. The new widgets and App Library are added on the iPhone. Likewise, you can use either Face ID or PIN to unlock the phone securely.
Siri- Apple’s digital assistant, with whom you can do all sorts of things, has a more compact interface. On summoning Siri, you will get your answer in a small pop-up window while you will still be able to see the active app on your interface.
The Pro max version packs a triple camera on the rear identical to the iPhone 12 Pro and 11 Pro with different hardware. The newly introduced camera hardware is exclusive to the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The primary camera flaunts an upgrade after a long time with a 12MP sensor and 1.7µm sensor pixels, which help capture better pictures in low-light. Similarly, the ultra-wide camera is a 12MP snapper with 1.0µm pixels and 13mm f/2.4 aperture. The telephoto camera on the Pro Max has longer-range zoom, offering 2.5x optical zoom.
The portrait night-mode is available only on the primary camera. Images are identical to the rest of iPhone 12’s; however, the low light photos are better in Pro Max. Similarly, portrait images were never so good before. Overall, images are excellent but could have been better if Apple tuned its processing a little and lessened the images’ sharpening.
The selfie on the front is a 12MP sensor identical to the other 12th series iPhones with 1.0µm pixels and 23mm f/2.2 aperture.
Selfie is incredibly the best even in the portrait mode. The noise is significantly less, details are abundant, and colors are true to life.
Due to the EIS plus sensor-shift, videos have high stabilization. Pro Max captures videos up to 4K at 60fps. The videos are lively and have an outstanding dynamic range.
After the larger screen, the battery is another reason to grab the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It has a 3678 mAh battery, which is still smaller than the previous generation’s iPhone 11 Pro Max. For charging the battery, you can use both wired and wireless charging.
USB Power Delivery can charge the battery as fast charging. You can also buy Apple’s 20W PD charger as the new iPhones don’t ship with a charger. Additionally, any other 20W USB PD power adapter works perfectly.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max refills 55% of the battery in 30 minutes, using Apple’s 20W charger. At the same time, the 20W adapter takes 89 minutes. A full charge for the battery takes around 90 minutes.
