iPhone 12 vs iPhone 12 Pro Max Comparison

iPhone 12 vs iPhone 12 Pro Max

Perhaps you're having a little trouble deciding between Apple's 12 Series iPhones? All of them are very powerful and equipped with the brand's latest technology, and are considered high-end smartphones. This is of course the case with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which have the same square design and the highly efficient A14 Bionic chip.

iPhone 12, smaller, but just as powerful

Smaller than the iPhone 12 Pro Max, this smartphone is of course differentiated in terms of screen size. It measures 6.1 inches on the iPhone 12 versus 6.7 inches for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, it's important to mention that the resolution and display quality are not significantly reduced. The resolution is 2,532 × 1,170 px compared to 2,778 × 1,284 px for the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the displays are quite similar on both smartphones. It's virtually impossible to pick one as sharper than the other.

Another point of difference is storage. The iPhone 12 gives you storage options from 64GB to 256GB. The iPhone 12 Pro Max offers the usual increments between 128 and 512 GB.

iPhone 12 Pro Max, a smartphone with photo capabilities

Also including the A14 chip, 5G compatibility and a sharp OLED display, the iPhone 12 Pro Max features a better camera. Unlike the iPhone 12, which only has a dual camera module (12MP), the Max model has three (also 12MP). The new addition is a telephoto lens, which gives you a 5× optical zoom and an f/2.0 aperture. The main sensor is also larger and offers better image stabilisation. In addition, a LIDAR sensor enriches the set, giving the camera the possibility to better understand the scene and to adapt the settings more precisely. The results are amazing.

Photography enthusiasts will undoubtedly appreciate the great qualities of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Its additional telephoto lens and LIDAR sensor ensure your ability to capture better photos, even in low light. The fact remains that this is a large smartphone though. If you're looking for a more compact option that offers an excellent combination of performance, power and price, the iPhone 12 is the right choice for you.
