The big dilemma: iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max?

Is its size really scary?

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is preceded by a scary headline: “The largest iPhone ever”. And yes, this iPhone is the largest phone Apple has ever made and that can be a great advantage or a huge inconvenient. On the one hand, of course, you are going to enjoy the best multimedia experience you have ever had with a phone made in Cupertino. And we are talking about nothing less than 6.7 inch screen, a panel of good contrast, brightness and colors with which you will practically not miss any type of support or extra equipment – without going any further, I can tell you that during the time that I have been using the Pro Max as a personal phone, I have barely used my iPad.

The side bad, Of course, with this we also have a tremendously large phone. I must confess that I am quite a fan of large smartphones. I have always defended them and they have always liked me because they usually offer me a wider panel and also a bigger battery. However, with this Pro Max I thought a lot about whether to finally bet on it or not because hardly the first time you see it you will like it and don’t think it’s giant. It will be as the days go by when you finally see if you either get used to it or, instead, you end up confirming that it is uncomfortable to use with one hand or that it is too bulky for day to day.

The battery, its other great attraction

Being that big at least has one special advantage over its Pro brother and that is autonomy. This Pro Max is a real delight in terms of battery and it has been one of the reasons why in the end (alert: spoiler) I have ended up betting on it against the iPhone Pro 12.

Unfortunately, now I don’t travel as much as to be able to test it on the go, but I can confirm that with normal use of the terminal, you can allow yourself to charge the phone one day and one day, given its great endurance, which with its little brother, the iPhone 12 Pro, does not pass.

Photography: is there so much difference?

On the issue cameras -I sure you are wondering- there are also differences, but in this case they are so small that I would not even dare to tell you that you should buy the iPhone 12 Pro Max for its lenses. In the morning, with favorable light conditions, the results are, in fact, tremendously similar so it is quite difficult to opt for the photography of one model or another. Yes, you will appreciate a small qualitative leap when using the zoom, Since the Pro Max has a 2.5x optical zoom compared to the 2x of the 12 Pro and you will enjoy something more sharp and especially close in the shots. Even the 12x digital zoom of the Pro Max comes out quite well, so we can highlight a better work in this area in favor of the graded of the couple.

Regarding the portrait, Well, again the work of clipping and bokeh effect is very similar (slightly more pronounced in the Pro Max), only that with the larger terminal we will get a little closer to the subject (in equal distances with respect to the Pro model) and that can like more or less -in the video that you have a few lines above you can see examples of all the situations and scenarios I’m pointing to, by the way.

By night yes I could tell you that I have observed certain details to lean towards the iPhone 12 Peo Max with something more definition and texture in certain situations, but again it is about such small and subtle differences that it is difficult to emphasize them in a forceful way.

And what about record a video? You probably know that the iPhone 12 Pro Max enjoys improved stabilization thanks to a motor internal while the iPhone 12 Pro works this function by software. People who are experts in the field of recording and cinema claim to find differences, but, most likely if it is not your field, it will happen to you like me: you will know that the Max is superior but you will rarely really see an obvious difference between its results and those of the iPhone 12 Pro.

For a very specific audience

My pulse does not shake when I tell you that the iPhone 12 Pro Max is undoubtedly one of the phones, in terms of dimensions, most risky that I have ever had to evaluate to recommend. I would tell you, in fact, that only if you attach extreme importance to a large screen already one bigger battery, bet on it, although this will always mean sacrificing other aspects related to its comfort of use.

Not even the camera I think can be a weighting factor given its small differences and only in very specific cases, in which you really care a lot and are very special with photography, it will really make up for the jump. It remains for you to value it.
