Big step up from my 7 plus. The 5G antenna performance is very good and works in areas I previously got poor reception. The migration from my old phone to the new one was very easy and only took about 30 min, and didn’t have restore from backup.
Despite being only 2 grams heavier than last year's 11 Pro Max, the iPhone 12 Pro Max feels even more solid and well-built. The flat edges, the matte-etched glass back and stainless steel sides are another level of premium fit and finish. If you want the best of all things in an Apple smartphone, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is it. The large and bright display, the enhanced camera, the longer battery life and awesome grunt inside make this a compelling smartphone. If your hands can cope with the extra heft (and your wallet with the heftier price), this is the model to go for.
An awesome device, coming from a prior Android user. I’ve supported Apple phones at work for years, but stayed with Android until now. Obviously there are differences and gaps, but I’m very happy with this device - definitely feels and operates as a premium phone.
The LiDAR scanning is insane to have available on a consumer device - pic for reference. I can’t wait to see what app developers do with this capability.
Best Buy’s curbside service was quick and easy. Their staff is always friendly and helpful.
Most people will have already decided whether they want an iPhone or Android device. The last iPhone I had was a 3S (yes - long time ago), but I've had a few android phones between then, Sony, LG and HTC. To be honest, all of them did the job, but never had the same classy feel as an iPhone. Small details on the iPhone such as
Classy feel -Quick responses , Option of colours is great (I went for blue) , I would have gone for a space grey, but didn't think it worth buying a iPhone 12 pro (I have an iPad pro, but for what I use it for may as well have bought an iPad air).
I haven’t up graded in so many years. So much so that I still had an iPhone 5. So getting a new iPhone was such a big deal for me! Just the bigger size is amazing to me. This iPhone 12 Pro Max is definitely so far living up to everything it was advertised as! Also the customer service at Best Buy was amazing! They even installed my new screen protector and new phone case! I did not expect either of those to be installed for free either! Thank you Best Buy for helping me so much!
The performance of this model outweighs the previous versions by far. Seems to be built for iOS14 and is snappy quick. The 12 pro Max is same size as my previous 8 Plus but with the smaller bezels, reaching to the top is a bit of a stretch. Either enable accessibility features to reach or use a second hand and it’s not as bad. Easy to get used to. Gaming and streaming is quick and picture is super sharp. Taking photos and videos has been amazing! So crisp and great low light performance! I have not played with photo or video editing much yet but look forward to all the advanced features! MagSafe seems very limited right not and I’m not able to find (or make) an accessory that work for me. Hopefully the MagSafe ecosystem expands soon. In the end, worth it.
