iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone 12 Pro Max Comparison

iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone 12 Pro Max

These two high-end smartphones differ in one key respect: their size. The iPhone 12 mini is a compact smartphone full of innovative technology at only 135 grams of weight. The iPhone 12 Pro Max, on the other hand, has more generous dimensions when compared. With its 6.7-inch screen (compared to 5.4 inches for the mini) and its 228 grams, it takes the lead in terms of size (if 'bigger the better' is your preference).

iPhone 12 mini, the compact and powerful smartphone

Although it is small, the screen of the iPhone 12 mini has nothing to envy to the Pro Max version. The colour reproduction is exceptional and watching your videos is very pleasant. However, its battery is smaller and for the same use, the autonomy is slightly reduced. It is still compatible with 5G technology, just like the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It also has 4GB of RAM: enough to run the latest mobile games.

iPhone 12 Pro Max, the most powerful model in the series

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is particularly powerful. Its large screen is sure to please. As for its photo capability, it is much more impressive than that of the iPhone 12 mini, especially in low light. It has a LIDAR sensor that helps with focusing and even improves the quality of the smartphone's augmented reality too. On the battery life front, it's offers a larger charge capacity which allows you to gain a few mroe hours of use. On the power side, the iPhone 12 Pro Max takes advantage of 6GB of RAM.

All iPhone 12 models are equipped with the same A134 Bionic chip.
