Uswitch experts review of iPhone 12 Pro Max

Ray Ali, Uswitch mobiles expert reviewed the iPhone 12 Pro Max when it was first released.

“The 12 Pro Max is bigger than the 11 Pro Max. But its design, which is the same squared look as the rest of the range, means it doesn’t come across as too big.

It’s even better than the 12 Pro. As well as the bigger screen, it’s also got a better camera system which includes a telephoto lens and the biggest sensor of any iPhone.

Size and usability wise, yep it’s pretty big. But as mentioned, its square-edged design doesn’t make it look quite as big as the 11 Pro Max did, even though it is slightly bigger.

The screen is stunning too, and you can see the difference in the camera even when you compare it to the iPhone 12 Pro.”
