iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 12 Pro Max – Which should you choose?

[quads id=1]Hi everyone  iphone 12 pro and the iphone 12 pro max are both fantastic phones and they have a lot\xa0 of similarities but there are some differences as well and so i wanted to help you decide which\xa0 one would be best for you and so the first thing is the price the iphone 12 pro comes in at\xa0 999 dollars and goes all the way up to 1299 the iphone 12 pro max is a hundred dollars more\xa0 for the same storage options so 1099 up to 1 399. you can get it in 128 gigabytes 256 or 512. and it\xa0 comes in four different colors this year last year they had a green color that’s now gone and\xa0 replaced by this new pacific blue color that i have here you also have silver gold and graphite\xa0 graphite is just a replacement name for space gray but they basically look the same from year to year\xa0 now obviously you have a very big size difference between the two of them and a weight difference\xa0 as well the iphone 12 pro is 6.66 ounces or 189 grams or the iphone 12 pro max is 8.03 ounces\xa0 or 228 grams it’s definitely heavier you feel the difference and it feels much larger in your\xa0 hand this year because the edges are squared off the edges are stainless steel this year and you\xa0 have the same sort of layout you’ve had every year so you have a stainless steel edge glass\xa0 front and back and you have your power sleep wake button on the right hand side followed by your\xa0 5g millimeter wave antenna in the united states so not everyone gets this but it’s for millimeter\xa0 wave if you have that specifically verizon or a t on the bottom the speakers are the same although\xa0 you have a couple less speaker holes this year just on the smaller size so it’s sort of\xa0 symmetrical four verse three when it comes to the microphone and five verse six when it\xa0 comes to the speakers now on the other side on the left hand side again you have the exact\xa0 same thing so you have your volume buttons your silent switch and your sim card tray and they’re\xa0 in different spots this year and you can see the edge of

this is an absolute fingerprint magnet and\xa0 you will have to wipe it off often but the back being that it’s matte doesn’t have that issue\xa0 now obviously one of the biggest differences is the displays and the displays are very similar as\xa0 far as their overall pixel density but the iphone 12 pro is 6.1 inches or 2532 by 1 170 pixels with\xa0 a pixel density of 460 pixels per inch the iphone 12 pro max this year gets a 6.7 inch display the\xa0 largest display ever on an iphone and it’s 2778 by 1284 with 458 pixels per inch they both have\xa0 fantastic viewing angles they go super bright 800 nits of brightness at normal brightness\xa0 and then 1200 when playing back hdr video and they both look fantastic both of them\xa0 do use pwm to control the brightness which means the screens are flickering even though you\xa0 can’t see this with your eye but they do flicker but they’re at a high enough rate this year\xa0 where they don’t bother my eyes at all where they have in the past so if you had issues with\xa0 that you really shouldn’t see a difference now the other big difference between the two\xa0 of them other than weight and overall size is the battery the iphone 12 pro has a 2 815\xa0 milliamp hour battery and the 12 pro max has a 3 687 milliamp hour battery and that battery does\xa0 make a difference when it comes to overall screen on time and usage when you’re using your phone\xa0 day to day the iphone 12 pro will get about six hours of screen on time depending on how you’re\xa0 using it with the iphone 12 pro max you can expect closer to about 11 or 12 hours of screen on time\xa0 with normal use this is my daily phone here and you’ll see if i go back a few days depending on\xa0 the day it’s going to vary greatly but generally i’ll get about 10 hours of screen on time 3 hours\xa0 and 49 minutes of screen on time 16 minutes of screen off time and i used it about a quarter\xa0 of the battery so it lasts throughout the day the iphone 12 pro in my normal use i got five\xa0 and a half six if i was lucky so i use it the exact same way you can see i have the same icons\xa0 and everything so i used this one the 12 pro swapped the sim card to the 12 pro max and then\xa0 used it that way now when it comes to the cameras on both of these phones the forward-facing camera\xa0 is identical in every way it looks great does 4k 60 has hdr but the rear cameras are a little bit\xa0 different this year the camera module in the 12 pro max is much larger as you can see here they’re\xa0 just it’s a bigger overall which allows for a 47 larger sensor on the 12 pro max that allows better\xa0 detail and low light when you’re taking photos and video so that could be a huge advantage although\xa0 we’re not seeing a huge difference yet but as you can see in these photos from the main camera we\xa0 have a 1.6 aperture there’s nice depth of field but you can’t really see the difference unless you\xa0 zoom way in so there’s not a huge difference here but one thing you do get that’s a little bit\xa0 different on the 12 pro you have optical image stabilization which actually makes the lens\xa0 itself float on the 12 pro max it’s actually image stabilized via the sensor or sensor shift\xa0 optical image stabilization similar to that of the mirrorless camera i’m recording to now the sensor\xa0 itself is larger and on a float that way the lens is not sort of jiggling around all the time so\xa0 the sensor moves instead which usually ends up being a better way to do that you also have ultra\xa0 wide of course and telephoto but the telephoto is different on the 12 pro max as well it can go up\xa0 to 5x optical zoom when punching into the sensor where the 12 pro can go up to 4x you can zoom in\xa0 digitally as well a little bit further but the difference is very small so because of the overall\xa0 sensors and things the major difference is with the main camera with the larger sensor now both\xa0 have lidar which helps for better depth of field and night portraits and also augmented reality\xa0 and then both of them record in 4k 60 hdr which is really incredible i recorded my 12 pro max review\xa0 in hdr if you want to see that i actually uploaded it in hdr so if you have an hdr capable display\xa0 you can see it but you’ll see the option 4k 60 and down here hdr so you have the hdr option which\xa0 is really impressive and it does a great job now other than what i’ve already mentioned everything\xa0 else is the same you have the same face id sensor you have the same water resistance ip68 six meters\xa0 for 30 minutes you have the same a14 cpu with six gigabytes of ram which means the phone is super\xa0 fast has great memory management or ram management and also you get the same fast charging with\xa0 magsafe so both of them support magsafe this year where it will fast charge and align itself using\xa0 the magsafe adapter and charge it 15 watts however if you use a wired charger with a 20 watt adapter\xa0 you can charge 50 in 30 minutes on either it will slow down after that and take about an hour and\xa0 a half total to charge depending on your phone and so both of these are very similar and it\xa0 really comes down to size and battery life i think for most while the cameras are different and\xa0 i think in the future we’ll see more improvements with the larger sensor on the 12 pro max right\xa0 now it’s very very close and i don’t think it really matters to a whole lot of people the\xa0 5g is the exact same you get the same speeds the same quality connections with a qualcomm modem\xa0 and the major difference is size and battery life so if you really want a lot of battery life then\xa0 i would go with the 12 pro max if the battery life doesn’t matter as much and you want something that\xa0 fits in your hand a little bit better well then i would go with the 12 pro both are excellent phones\xa0 being that they’re within 100 of each other that extra 100 may make a difference for you as well\xa0 so just keep that in mind but really they’re very very close and the camera is a little bit better\xa0 this year in the 12 pro max otherwise there’s no difference whatsoever the same speakers the same\xa0 microphones the same reception just size battery and the cameras are the major thing now hopefully\xa0 that helped you decide which you should choose whether that be the 12 pro the 12 pro max or maybe\xa0 even sticking with a different phone or going with something else hopefully this helped you out let\xa0 me know in the comments below if you picked one of these up which color and which storage size i’d\xa0 love to hear from you in the comments below of course if you’d like to get your hands on this\xa0 wallpaper i’ll link it in the description like i normally do if you haven’t subscribed already\xa0 though please subscribe and if you enjoyed the video please give it a like as always thanks for\xa0 watching
