  • I'm upgrading from my 7+ 256 to a 12 Pro Max 256, however, I'm worried that maybe 256gb is not enough. My 7+ has 125gb available which is plenty however I want to ensure my 12 PMax will get me through the next 2-3 years without running out of space. My 7+ has every digital photo stored on it since I began taking digital photos in 2004 so id just needs to make sure that I can add another 2-3 years of iPhone 12 photos and videos. I'm conscious that iPhone 12 Pro Max files will be bigger.

  • Hands down ...Pro Max!

  • I like the benefits especially the camera and battery for the pro max. It will be particularly good if you use IG for business and want good quality snaps. However, as a guy having to carry this in your pocket is a bit much it’s huge and wide! You also can’t really text one handed because it’s so wide... fml

  • I love my iphone pro max I understand people saying it is big, it is. But I don’t notice it since iphone has given the Max or plus size I have gone for it. I think it would be really hard for me to size down. I look at the smaller sizes and find myself saying that it is just too small. Also loving the pacific blue. I’m stoked that they went back to the shape of the Iphone 4s and 5 because my first iphone was a 4s and I love that shape!!

  • Rule of thumb: if you’re used to a large phone size (iPhone 6s+ for instance), you can easily adapt to a 12 Pro Max size (or if it’s too much, an 11 Pro Max when it’s cleared for clearance; adopt!)

  • Save your money people. This iPhone is actually a huge disappointment. There is absolutely nothing new. Maybe a slight upgrade to a camera maybe a slightly slightly bigger screen. They don’t even give you new ringtones or text tones. They don’t even include a brick or headphones in the box

  • Im on 7 plus now and pretty sure im upgrading to 11 pro max after a price drop. 5g isn’t available where I live and battery is better on 11. As you said camera difference is minimal with 12, and the 12 pro max is too big for my taste...

  • 12 PRO MAX over 12 PRO: 1) bigger battery 2) better camera 3) Bigger screen makes typing easier and doing some work if you can't work with PC or laptop. 4) Better loud speakers

  • I've ordered the 12 Pro Max and am looking forward to exploring the capabilities of the camera. Also, very interested in the raw mode and raw editing software that will be forthcoming. The design is a fresh look, which they really, really needed. I like it. The next thing they need to allow is customization of the app icons on the home screen. The widgets are great, but I enjoyed the flexibility to change the entire look of my Android screen simply by choosing a different icon design group.

  • Pre Ordered my Graphite 12 Pro Max, always gone for the big phone mostly because of battery life and screen size. The added benefits in the camera and extra RAM are just bonus’s and it’s literally just £100 more. I see no reason not too if you’re spending £1000 already, unless you really really don’t need or what the bigger size.

  • I'm learning toward the Pro Max, but I have to hold it in my hand & see how it fits in my pocket. Then I'll decide if the extra features are worth it or if it's just too big to handle comfortably.

  • The author nails it. I won't buy the 12 Pro, because I don't want to run around with the second best smartphone camera on the market. But I also won't buy the Max because of its rediculous size. So, I'm hoping that Apple gets his sh** done for the iPhone 13.

The biggest problem is I ordered it thru T-Mobile in October and shipping keeps getting delayed now as late as Jan 4, 2021. I hope my phone makes it to that point. But every week it keeps getting pushed back.

    Wax FWax F26 days ago
  • glad they have kept the shape and design. i ventured out of the iPhone world when the Galaxy 10 plus launched. i always make sure i have an otter box before the device shows up so as soon as i open it it goes into the Defender case the minute its opened before its even powered on. So i did the usual and had it there waiting. well since they tried to do that weird screen that wraps around the edges it makes it almost impossible to fully protect it and basically after the second drop the phone was turfed and couldn't even see the other half of the screen when it did crack so i couldn't even use it with the cracked screen. I have been so use to throwing it in the otter-box and never having to worry as i had dropped my iPhone 8 max hundreds of times including it falling out of the holder on my streetbike when i was doing a wheelie going about 80 mph, turned around blew it off and no scratch on it not even the case. So after that i brought it back out thank god i didn't trade it in and now i just pre-ordered the 12 pro max and should be here through Comcast by Nov 20th and already have the otter-box on the way. not only did i regret the decision of spending 1000+ on a s10+ the screen repair was going to be about 300 which is insane too so now i have a nice paper weight. cant wait for the 12 to get here at the end of the month. still dont get the whole no charger thing. Figured they would have at least took a few bucks off for the no charger too but of course not lol just spent 1400 on a phone and still have to buy a charger base SMH

  • Of course it's worth the wait if you gonna buy something go full tard on it; get the best of the best my philosophy you only live once if you have the means to buy normal iPhone 12 you have the means for the pro max 😉 . I preordered mine pacific blue 512gb pro max no second guesses as soon as I heard the dates I waited so I hardly can't wait; plus already got meself the accessories 😉 like a tard. Not gonna lie though the mini iPhone looks cute and all for the ladies so that one is no second guesses as well😇

  • More natural bokeh too on the wide because of the larger sensor surface too. Yep, when it comes to digital cameras, the bigger the sensor the more versatility and better the images. Sensor shift should make OIS much better too. The telephoto will give you more reach at the cost of less light. Maybe computational photography may make up some of that ground, but I don't have it in hand so can't say. In general, more light = better image, so expect a degradation in image quality in lower light scenarios. BTW, I don't put my 11 Pro Max in my pocket - I use a belt holster (which is where I'm going to keep my 12 Pro Max). The $100 incremental cost is peanuts over the life of the phone - just as the $120 cost increment from the iPhone 12 to iPhone 12 Pro is pretty small (once you bump the iPhone 12 up to a usable storage tier).

  • *iPhone 12 Pro Max for me!* *Upgrading from the 7 Plus. I take lots of low light photography & cannot wait to see what the 12 Pro Max can deliver. Definitely the larger display because my phone is my primary research, communications, navigation, entertainment, filmography & photography device. Optimistically waiting to see real world side-by-sides before I order one.* *Question is: 256GB or 512GB model? My 7 Plus is 256GB & it’s almost full with my photo album, my home films & video library for entertainment. Yes, I do stream shows but I have all Stargate SG1 on my 7 Plus. That’s definitely staying. I think I’ll be considering the 512GB model so it’ll last me as long or longer than my 7 Plus has.* *Bring on that 12 Pro / 12 Pro Max side-by-side real world comparison video!*

  • For those who can’t decide because of size. It’s best to go BIG on this one and choose the Pro Max to have the largest Apple iPhone Screen ever, and by the way first year for Apple in 5G. Then on the next Apple iPhone you can downgrade size if you still don’t like the size of a Pro Max at that time.

  • With the biggest jump in camera upgrade, great battery life and not to forget, the delays caused in 12 pro shipment. Why not go for 12 pro max instead? At least, you can use it for a couple of years. It sucks the cheapest iPhone will have the worst battery life. People like compactness but using that A14 chip for just a few minutes sucks.

At list to feel like it’s a new model. The bad thing is that ones you put a case on it, they all look the same. Lol don’t get mad at me, I like apple too.

I want to get the 12 pro max but I’m going to miss Touch ID. I wish Apple could make a phone with Touch ID and face recognition. Should I wait for the iPhone 13?
