iPhone 12 Pro Max and its design
Similar to iPhone 12 mini, even in this case, the “wow” effect starts before being taken out of the box. The paper packaging is black, it is thinner (absence of adapter) but overall larger. No surprise inside is the biggest smartphone Apple has ever made. On the other side 20W adapter is missing.
After you have separated the top of the box from the bottom, there’s a huge piece of consumer electronics in front of your eyes. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is prestigious and thanks to the stainless steel frames acts as a “gem”. The test model was a combination of white and silver (Silver) and although I prefer not to admit, he left an impression.
At this point, it should be noted that I use the iPhone 11 Pro (5.8 ″) myself. I didn’t really expect to be enthralled by the altered square design. The front and rear are all the same, but the flat frames are something new and radically refresh the product. Certainly thinner chins also help, while the display covers a larger part of the device.
Visually, I give the iPhone 12 Pro Max ten points out of ten. No matter what angle and color I looked at, it always looked great. Of course, it’s just a matter of subjective judgment but I think most of you will personally agree. You can try your phone, for example, in m: zone.
Huge exhibition and its use
As I mentioned, this is the largest smartphone ever made in Cupertine and should be considered when using it. One-handed operation will be problematic a this is especially true when extending your thumb to specific corners of the display unit. However, I was surprised to use the keyboard, which I managed (with my longer fingers) without considerable effort. The buttons are larger so they can be pressed with one hand thumb.
The negative aspects of this area are playfully offset by use. Whether you play video, flip a game or a photo editing app, you’ll always work almost as well as on a smaller tablet. It’s just about your choices. I decided for the 6.7 ″ model, which I have already ordered.
Flatter edges are smarter, but you get used to it quickly
There would also be a need to comment on flat edges. As I noted in iPhone 12 mini, the material is not as comfortable as the rounded resolution of its predecessors. However, these shapes cannot be said to have particularly hindered me. All in all, they’re smarter, so you see them a bit denser. I got used to it in about 2 hours of use. Probably the same for you.
Compared to the smaller iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is similar, but not exactly the same thing. In addition to the dimensions, it also differs in the rear part, where the camera module has grown. The sensors are magnified, which has ensured better images during poor lighting conditions.
In practice, these are very few differences and will only be appreciated by professionals. All three lenses protrude into space a bit more prominently than on the other iPhones, which might bother someone, but I liked this effect. It worked valuable.
Finally, I’ll answer perhaps the most frequently asked question concerning the “Pro” versions of the iPhone 12. How do they deal with fingerprints? To put it bluntly, it’s not “anything much”. The shiny stainless steel frame acts as a magnet for dirt or grease. All you have to do is hold it in your hand for a few seconds and then you will see for yourself how quickly it will eventually become “frustrated”.
But the good news is the presence of frosted glass at the back (unlike iPhone 12). Here, the fingerprint only appears on the Apple logo and the camera lens. These days, you probably can’t avoid them with any device. My little tip is to choose a darker version. In the Gold and Silver versions, the fingerprints are much more prominent, if on Pacific Blue whose Graphite.
iPhone 12 Pro Max with amazing battery life
A large body also comes with a large battery. I used the iPhone 12 Pro Max for a few days and my stamina took my breath away. In the past I had a brief experience with the iPhone 11 Pro Max and I am not afraid to say that the new generation would win by direct comparison. Although it hides a smaller battery in its bowels (3687mAh compared to 3969mAh), The A14 Bionic chip demonstrates its energy efficiency capabilities.
In normal use I had to charge once every two days. For me, absolutely optimal. As part of the testwhich included replay games, videos, web scrolling and social networks I found in time 9 hours and 1 minute. Just to give you an idea, the iPhone 12 mini passed 6 hours and 9 minutes in the same test. That’s a decent difference.
If you suffer from infrequent charging, you will love the iPhone 12 Pro Max. As such, he is one of the real leaders, and if you tried, he would probably manage 3 days without release. However, this would be an extreme case where the vast potential of technology could not be exploited…
Is it worth buying an iPhone 12 Pro Max?
Before I make the final judgment, I would like to point out that I will comment on performance, cameras and other functions only after a long test. But if I could sum it up, A14 Bionic does not hesitate for a moment and the lenses along with the LiDAR scanner create beautiful pictures or video.
The phone takes better photos than its predecessor, which we can thank a larger sensor as well as more favorable aperture numbers (eg f / 1.6 for basic wide-angle lens) + LiDAR.
If you own an iPhone 11 Pro Max, The exchange is worth considering. Aside from the slightly better design and cameras, you probably won’t appreciate it. Owners of the iPhone XS Max and older versions, “Plus” will applaud. This is the best and largest offer of the current offer. So I definitely recommend it. It’s perfect for its target group.
You can buy iPhone 12 Pro Max from an authorized dealer m: zone. You can also come and try it at any of the branches at Žilina (Aupark) or v Bratislava (Aupark, Eurovea).
