Is the iPhone 12 Pro Max worth that price?

iPhone 12 Pro Max It is the next phone in the expected iPhone 12 series and this phone will be the best version that comes with the strongest specifications and the strongest price as well. The phone is expected to come at a high price due to its value and specifications in addition to the reputation of Apple, which is famous for its phones being the most expensive in the world of smartphones. The phone will come at a price exceeding $ 1000, which is undeniably very expensive, especially in those days when the whole world suffers from the repercussions of the Corona virus, but is the phone really worth this price? Will the phone please the user and make him feel like he didn't spend all that money for nothing?

Noticeable improvements to the screen

As it is the best phone in the series, the phone will definitely come with the best screen like what we expect in a phone Samsung Galaxy S21. Indeed, it did not violate our expectations, as the device will come with a high-resolution OLED screen and not with any ordinary screen. Rather, Apple has added new improvements to it that we are witnessing for the first time, such as:

  • 120Hz refresh rate
  • 800 nits max brightness
  • Dolby Vision
  • HDR10
  • Wide color gamut
  • True-tone
  • 120HZ touch-sensing

Apple has been late in adding the refresh rate to its phones as we have already seen it in many phones previously like Samsung Galaxy S20 A year earlier, we had seen this feature in the OnePlus 7T series of phones.

It is worth noting that this is a significant upgrade as the base model is expected to come يأتي iPhone 12 With a normal IPS LCD screen. This screen is expected to have a fantastic visual experience, especially when watching multimedia and gaming, and what also supports this is the very sufficient screen size.

Processor and performance are not everything!

Regarding the processor, we have here the Apple A14 processor, which is the same as the one in iPhone 12 Pro. The A13 processor that was present in last year's series was already an outstanding processor and was proven by everyone to be the most powerful processor in the world due to its ability to run the heaviest applications and all the games that require high graphics.

But performance is not everything, even the new phone from Apple is in the middle class, which is

 iPhone SE 2020 And it comes with an A13 processor but not many are excited to buy it, so one piece missing in our review of the phone is the camera. The phone will come with four cameras as follows:

  1. First: 12 MP (wide), f/1.8
  2. Second: 12 MP (Telephoto), f/1.8 aperture, 3x optical zoom
  3. Third: 12 MP (ultra wide), f/2.2
  4. Fourth: TOF LiDAR 3D Scanner (Depth)

With features such as dual-tone LED flash, panorama, HDR and the ability to shoot 4K video at 60fps, similar to the camera setup found in Samsung Galaxy Note 20.

It seems that Apple will continue to provide a distinctive photographic experience to its users, especially after the addition of the fourth sensor, which is expected to add the required depth in the images, which will contribute to the production of high-resolution cinematic images full of details and saturated with colors.

With regard to the battery, it will come with a capacity of 3969 mAh non-removable Li-ion model and will support fast charging with a capacity of 18 watts, which from our point of view is a relatively low charging speed compared to competitors, specifically Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Plus. Which by the way will be launched about a month before it at a similar price, but it will come with a 4500 mAh battery and will support 45W fast charging, do you see the difference?


There is no denying that this phone is high-end and will come with leading specifications, and it cannot be argued that whoever will buy it will enjoy a distinguished use experience and features that are not found in many phones such as the wonderful screen and the most powerful processor in the world, and certainly the camera, which ranks one of the most prominent advantages of Apple phones over the years. Ages But Are All Those Features Worth Spending Over $1000? This is relative and may differ from one buyer to another, this amount will not constitute an obstacle for a businessman or a wealthy employee, but it may be difficult for an ordinary person and may have to borrow money in order to buy the phone and here comes our role as there are many phones that will give you the same experience Usage or less with slight nuances such as a string OnePlus 8.
