  1. Samsung’s latest flagships i.e. the Galaxy S21 Series do not come with a charger or headphones in the box which sparked funny reactions from fans. However, the company has now confirmed in a statement to The Verge that the South Korean giant will apply the same approach to other models going forward. © Youtube_y Vo Xuan Samsung mobile communication EVP and head of customer experience Patrick Chomet wrote in an FAQ that Samsung will be taking a “gradual” approach to removing chargers and earphones from the boxes of the forthcoming smartphones. He noted Samsung customers can already reuse accessories from previous owned devices and the removal will address sustainable consumption issues and remove any pressure that consumers may feel towards continually receiving unnecessary charger accessories with new phones. "We’ve also been implementing standardized USB-C type charging ports since 2017, so older chargers can still be compatible with our newest Galaxy models," he added. Samsung smartphones for the past three years support USB-C Power Delivery Fast charging which makes it easier for existing customers to use previous accessories. Users can also purchase any third-party PD charger for fast charging needs which makes it a bit easier to make the transition for Samsung as compared to Apple. However, we don’t know as of yet which future models will be removing the accessories from the box. © Samsung Budget-friendly devices such as the Galaxy ‘M’ and ‘A’ series tend to have chargers in the box. However, it will be interesting to see if Samsung will take the same approach for the cheaper models. © Samsung Samsung mocked Apple for removing accessories from the box soon after the iPhone 12 line-up was launched. The company soon after scrubbed its social media accounts of critical posts prior to the Galaxy S21 series launch. What do you think of Samsung following Apple’s footsteps to remove accessories from the box of the Galaxy S21 Series? Let us know in the comments if you would favour this move if Samsung opts to go for the same approach for budget smartphones as well. View the full article
  2. It seems like WhatsApp can’t catch a break after it decided to update its terms of service and force users to accept them or face permanent deletion. Last week, certain WhatsApp groups could be found on Google Search via indexing and it seems like now phone numbers of WhatsApp Web users are now exposed. © Youtube_Softonic Even though the app has been facing intense backlash from existing users, it seems like this new debacle is worse than any of the other grievances. Personal phone numbers are now exposed via the same indexing method on Google Search. Many working professionals have been confined to their homes thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic due to which many people opted to use WhatsApp Web for better productivity and as a way to multi-task. However, Independent cybersecurity researcher Rajshekhar Rajaharia shared screenshots with IANS showing indexing of personal mobile numbers of WhatsApp Web users. "The leak is happening via WhatsApp on the Web. If someone is using WhatsApp on a laptop or on an office PC, the mobile numbers are being indexed on Google Search. These are mobile numbers of individual users, not business numbers," Rajaharia told IANS. © Reuters Google is able to index invite links to private WhatsApp group chats that are shared publicly and it seems like the same method worked for exposing the personal information of web users as well. While the indexed WhatsApp group chat links have now been removed from Google; personal phone numbers are still exposed. "Despite WhatsApp advising users and telling Google to remove the earlier exposed group chat links, the mobile numbers via WhatsApp Web application are now being indexed on Google Search," Rajaharia noted. The latest leak of personal mobile numbers via WhatsApp on Web has not been addressed by Facebook, WhatsApp nor Google. For now, WhatsApp has delayed its new terms of service where personal data of users will be shared with other Facebook-owned companies if they have interacted with a business. Businesses use WhatsApp as a mode of communication with customers for support, food orders and other types of commerce. If you have interacted with a business on WhatsApp or continue to do so in the future, WhatsApp will share your personal data with Facebook and companies under its umbrella of corporations including Instagram, Messenger and Facebook ads. © Reuters Many WhatsApp users have already started to flock to other messaging apps that have a better privacy policy and does not force its terms on them. Amongst them, Signal saw a massive increase in new users which led to the servers of the app crash on Friday night. If you are looking to switch between Telegram or Signal, check out our detailed comparison of the two apps and its privacy features here. View the full article

  4. If you recently purchased a foldable phone, you may need to worry about where you use the phone as cold weather is breaking its displays. According to Sam Mobile, both the Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy X Flip are breaking in South Korea’s bitter winter where it is currently experiencing -18 degree Celsius temperatures. © Sam-Mobile Pictures of foldable phones were posted online and it shows that the screens do not have any noticeable cracks. It's clear that the devices were rendered useless due to the weird blotches appearing on the screen. These smartphones were probably being used in extreme weather conditions that could have caused the displays of the foldable phones to falter. Having said that, it is currently not confirmed that extreme cold weather is the culprit behind causing malfunctions however it is the common theme amongst these faulty phones. Smartphones like many other gadgets, mechanical equipment and other types of devices can malfunction in sub-zero temperatures. The cold temperatures can cause brittleness which can impact a device’s functionality. In the case of foldable phones, cold temperatures can impact a phone’s foldability functionality since the displays are made of several layers and materials. © Sam-Mobile Samsung does offer a one time free replacement of the display for its foldable smartphones within the first year of ownership however it is currently unclear whether Samsung will honour replacements for these cases. Generally, Samsung phones do come with a warning about using its devices in extreme temperatures in its manual. “The device can be used in locations with an ambient temperature of 0 °C to 35 °C. You can store the device at an ambient temperature of -10 °C to 50 °C. Using or storing the device outside of the recommended temperature ranges may damage the device or reduce the battery’s lifespan.” However, the warning only refers to battery longevity and says nothing about display malfunction caused by extreme weather. Since there is no physical damage to the screens, it is possible that Samsung might repair or replace the phone at a cost. It could also be possible that the malfunction was caused by something completely unrelated and cold weather is not to blame. Source: Sam Mobile View the full article
  5. Samsung confirmed today that its latest Galaxy flagship smartphone will launch next week on January 14th at 8:30 PM IST. The Galaxy Unpacked event will be Samsung’s first major announcement of the year and will take place on the last day of CES. © LetsGoDigital “Over the past year, mobile technology has taken centre stage in everyday life as people are working remotely and spending more time at home,” Samsung’s invitation reads. “The accelerated transition to a mobile-first world brings with it the need for devices that can transform everyday life into an extraordinary experience.” Much like before any event, a lot of information on the upcoming smartphone has already leaked such as features, the design and what we can expect from the smartphone. Samsung has not officially detailed which smartphones are expected to launch, however, it’s all but certain that Samsung will be announced the new Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra. The company is also expected to announce a new pair of Galaxy Buds and possible a tracker much like the Tile products. © Github While we can expect the usual slew of information about the phone unveiling next week, one particular leak has been rather persistent. It seems like the company will be bringing stylus support to at least one of the models where the device will be able to function similarly to the Galaxy Note series. Samsung is also expected to push “more accessible” foldable smartphones in 2021 and we could expect the company to announce something along those lines at the event. The new range of foldable phones is also expected to have support for Samsung’s S Pen stylus as it was the only missing feature needed for the company’s foldable lineup. Samsung smartphone chief TM Roh has already discussed the possibility openly and we should know more once the event kicks off next week. © LetsGoDigital To know more about the Galaxy S21, check out all of the previous rumours here.

  6. Xiaomi has officially launched the new Mi 11 smartphone in China. It comes with a new design and upgraded specs and it gives a good look at what to expect from high-end flagship phones in 2021. On the front, it sports a 6.81-inch display with support for up to 120Hz refresh rate. What's more interesting is that it has a resolution of 3200x1440 and it's an AMOLED panel too. On paper, it sounds like one of the best smartphone displays, so we can't wait to check it out in person. © Xiaomi The Mi 11 is powered by the new Snapdragon 888 SoC and comes with up to 12GB RAM. As you'd expect, the Mi 11 supports Wifi 6 and 5G. But sadly, the phone will not come with a charger in the box. This was already confirmed by the CEO Lei Jun, so we're not entirely surprised. In terms of the optics, the Mi 11 sports a triple camera setup at the back which includes a 108-megapixel main sensor, a five-megapixel telephoto, and a 13 megapixel ultra-wide. It'll be interesting to see how the camera performs. Lastly, it's also worth pointing out that the Mi 11 supports faster 50W wireless charging for its 4,600 mAh battery. The Chinese version of the phone is available for pre-order today and it starts shipping on January 1. The base model of the Mi 11 is priced at 3,999 Yuan which roughly translates to around Rs 45,000. We don't know the pricing of the other versions, but we're sure they'll be adjusted when it arrives in other markets. Overall, the Mi 11 looks like a very promising phone and we can't wait to check it out. As of now, there's no info about its arrival in India, so we'll just have to wait for more info. In the meantime, you can check out the Mi 10T Pro that was launched not too long ago in India. View the full article
  7. This article will reinstate your faith in luck for sure! Don't believe us? Well, read on then. In an interesting turn of events, recently a man who declared on social media that he wouldn’t get married until he got a recently-launched smartphone was in for a pleasant surprise. The brand actually decided to gift him one. (Kaun hain ye log? kaha se aate hain?) Twitter user Kamal Ahamad from Uttar Pradesh tweeted that he wouldn’t get married till he got a Mi 10T Pro and as luck would have it, he actually received one.

  9. Concept phones are a great way to showcase what a particular company is cooking behind the scenes and what we can expect from them in the future. It's totally understandable getting excited about concept phones, but it goes without saying that you may never see that concept phone in reality. But we love checking out some cool concept phones because it at least tells us that the manufacturers are still putting in some effort to bring new innovations. And that's exactly why we're so pumped to see the new concept design from Oppo. Oppo has showcased a new concept device called the "slide-phone". It's working with a Japanese design studio nendo to put out this wild triple-hinge design concept. Here, take a look - Today, we’re showcasing two new design concepts produced in collaboration with leading Japanese design studio, nendo. First, is the ‘slide-phone’, which features a triple-hinge foldable screen system. #OPPOxnendo pic.twitter.com/r6YNrc2EmP — OPPO (@oppo) December 14, 2020 As you can see, this concept phone has three hinges that allow it to get a triple fold. The phone essentially transforms into a small pocketable device that's very easy to carry. Sliding up one fold reveals 40mm of the screen and the second fold will reveal an 80mm screen. It eventually opens up to become this phone with a tall form factor that somewhat reminds us of the infamous iPhone meme from the past. This one - © Twitter It's just a random meme generated by the users back when iPhone X had come out. It was basically to mock Apple to show how their phones are getting bigger and we'll eventually reach this tall device in a few years. As is the case with most concept phones, there's no release date, timelines, or any commitments. Heck, we don't even know if there's a working prototype yet but it's an innovative step that we're super excited about. If not this, we'll at least be getting something very close to the concept as a finished product. Source: Oppo View the full article
  10. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 is now official and it delivers some great improvements over the existing flagship SoC. We can expect a host of high-end phones to be powered by the Snapdragon 888 next year and beyond. That being said, we already a lot of phones that are confirmed to come out with the new processor.

  12. Micromax recently launched their “In” smartphones in India that have now started to appear in the hands of some of their customers. However, to many people’s surprise, some devices have been found to be faulty out of the box suggesting poor quality control. Customers took to Twitter and posted videos, pictures and their experiences with the new phone where some of them happen to have major issues. In two instances we found users who received a phone that had the back panel detached from the main body of the phone. This tends to happen during the quality control of a smartphone at the factory and it seems like some phones were overlooked for their unreliable build quality. I hope #Micromax is problem ko OTA update se solve kar dega ...........!! pic.twitter.com/Rt0wBbJFdi — Rakesh (@GyanTherapy) November 26, 2020In some cases, users also found that the display of the phone was either entirely misaligned or “popping out” causing durability and quality control concerns amongst customers. The misaligned screens with gaps have been the most common complaints we’ve seen from users online so far. Was just checking out my IN Note from the edges and as you can see, the display panel is not aligned with the frame. Showing you a close up of the right bottom side and the left one. There’s a gap with glue visible here. A pic.twitter.com/PUZP0jN1Xa — Nimit (@gizmoddict) November 26, 2020Well @Micromax__India you need to look after your quality control. And this thing is going on YouTube soon!! The phone coming out from the frame lol Smiling face with open mouth and tightly-closed eyes #MicromaxIsBack #MicromaxInNote1 pic.twitter.com/EVgslT0b5Q — Saaquib Neyazi (@saaquib_neyazi) November 25, 2020 Some users are also reporting that their brand new devices are coming with dents and scuffs out of the box. While it may be minor at first, the fact that the phone has a dent right out of the box, is yet another testament to Micromax’s lack of quality control. Having said that, many phones are tested at factories including drop tests from different heights which could be the reason behind this user’s dent on the phone. Having said that, this is no excuse for letting something like a dent pass up in the final quality check of the smartphone. Devices that are used for drop tests at factories aren’t usually meant for sale as a final product, however in this scenario, we suspect this might be the case. View the full article

  14. Xiaomi has been enjoying its top position in India when it comes to the smartphone shipments market share. The company has great success in the Indian market largely due to its Redmi smartphones. But the company has been trying hard to break out of that 'budget phone maker' bubble for a long time. And with the launch of both the Mi 10 and the Mi10T series, we think the company has done a great job of accomplishing that. With the Mi10T Pro 5G, I wanted to see if the company is really capable of breaking into the flagship market in India. Well, I've been using the Mi10T Pro 5G as my primary phone for a month now and I think I am ready to put my money on Xiaomi's flagship phones. Read my full review below to know exactly what I like about the Xiaomi Mi10T Pro - Design & Build Quality © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Like most people, my expectations from a flagship phone are fairly straightforward. I want the phone to look premium so that people know I am using a flagship device, and I want a solid in-hand feel that, you know, makes me enjoy using it more often. And the Mi10T Pro fits the boat very well, at least for me. It may not look like the most sophisticated phone on the market, especially with the amount of smudges and fingerprints it attracts, but it looks very premium with that glass sandwich design. It fits nicely in hand, thanks to the curved edges at the back. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer On the right, the Mi10T Pro sports a capacitive fingerprint scanner that doubles as a power button. Above that, you'll have the volume rockers as well. The left side of the phone is completely bare. On the top, you'll find a speaker port, IR blaster, and a microphone whereas, on the bottom, you'll see a speaker, microphone, a USB-C port, and the dual SIM card tray. If there's one thing that I don't like about the Mi10T Pro design, then it's got to be the camera module. More specifically how much it protrudes from the body itself. I am not a huge fan of using phone cases but it forces me to use a case to protect the module. I also don't like the fact the Mi10T Pro doesn't have an IP rating, but it's not a huge deal-breaker for me and it helps keep the cost of the phone as low as possible. Overall, I absolutely love the design and the build quality of the Mi10T Pro. It looks elegant and has a premium in-hand feel. I think this is also a good time to mention how crisp the Mi10T Pro's haptics are. It adds to an already premium feel of the phone and makes me want to use it more. Good job, Xiaomi. Display The Mi10T Pro sports a 6.67-inch IPS LCD on the front and it supports up to 144Hz refresh rate. It feels super responsive and you'll immediately notice the difference and appreciate it if you're coming from a regular 60Hz panel. Xiaomi has also included AdaptiveSync technology with which the display dynamically switches between refresh rates depending on the on-screen content. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The AdaptiveSync technology isn't something revolutionary or unheard of. A lot of us use gaming monitors that support this technology as it eliminates tearing and stuttering. But in all fairness, the Mi10T Pro is the first smartphone to have it and I am happy to see it here. Thanks to AdaptiveSync tech, the display doesn't always have to run at 144Hz at all times and it can dynamically switch to save battery. I'd say it's an absolute banger of a feature and it acts as a catalyst to save more battery in addition to the power saving features that are built into the phone. Speaking of the display itself, I think it's one of the best LCD panels I've ever used. It's probably not as good as the OLED on the Mi 10 but it's got likable color contrast, great viewing angles and it gets adequately bright as well. The panel also supports HDR10, making it great to watch movies and TV shows. Overall, I really like the display of the Mi10T Pro and I couldn't find anything to complain about. Performance As expected from a good flagship phone in 2020, the Mi10T Pro is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC along with 8GB RAM and a rapid UFS 3.1 storage. I can confidently say that the phone will breeze through most of the day-to-day tasks without a hiccup. The user experience is also very smooth and the faster storage helps with loading times, be it for an app or while gaming. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Part of the reason why I had such a smooth experience while using the phone also has to do with the MIUI software. It's still a heavily-skinned UI but it's not going to hinder your experience. In fact, most of the UI changes from the stock Android experience are very useful and a pleasure to use. MIUI has come a long way from what it used to be back in the days. It's a great experience and the performance of the Mi10T Pro is rock solid. Add a high refresh rate panel to that and you get a phone that feels faster than it actually is and it's great. Camera The Mi10T Pro sports a promising set of sensors at the back to fulfill your camera needs. It retains the 108MP f/1.7, 26mm, 1/1.33-inch from the Mi 10, and there's a 13MP ultrawide camera with 123-degree FOV and a 5MP macro sensor. The images taken from the main 108MP sensor, as expected, looks great. In fact, I was able to take some phenomenal images with minimal effort. The photos have accurate colors, balance contrast and they look quite sharp. I'd say the photos have great details in good lighting conditions. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer In darker situations, however, the sensor struggles a bit. I noticed that it either struggles to pick up details in shadows or it messed up the exposure when there are multiple light sources in the frame at night. It's not really bad but the photos can certainly look better. You can check out the samples below to see exactly what I am talking about. The Night Mode helps quite a bit but I found myself taking pictures without the Night Mode because of how much light the sensor manages to capture by default. I found the pictures to be more accurate and better to look at without the night mode at times. I also had a lot of fun shooting with the macro lens and I am definitely going to be using it more in the future whenever I can just to get a different perspective. Battery Life The Mi10T Pro packs a 5,000 mAh battery inside which I think is pretty good for a flagship phone in 2020. Especially with a high refresh rate, anything less than that would've been alarming. But thanks to the AdaptiveSync technology, it's safe to say that the Mi10T Pro goes heavy on the battery. The 33W charger that's included with the phone is also really helpful to quickly fill the tank. The Final Say The Mi10T Pro is priced at Rs 39,999 in India. For the price, I think you're getting one of the most balanced flagship phones of 2020. It looks super-premium and it has a stellar display to impress anybody who picks it up and uses it for the first time. It has also powerful internals for solid performance and great battery life to let you enjoy it without worrying about charging. What else do you want from a premium phone? © MensXP/Karthik Iyer I think the Mi10T Pro is a great option if you're looking to buy a flagship phone in 2020. I bet you'll struggle to find a better flagship at this price and it makes me want to see what Xiaomi has to offer in the future in the flagship space. I think Xiaomi is indeed ready to make a name for itself in the premium segment of the smartphone market in India. View the full article
  15. The iPhone 12 Pro is easily one of the best smartphones ever made by Apple and it can be attributed to several features on the phone. From its design to camera capabilities, the iPhone 12 Pro truly is a flagship phone in every sense even when considering the competition. We decided to pick out all the top features we love on the iPhone 12 Pro that makes it one of the best phones to buy in 2020: 1. Premium Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla There’s no other phone out there that truly feels like a luxurious premium phone like the iPhone 12 Pro. With its brushed glass back, the stainless steel frame and the squared-off design make it one of the most unique smartphones in the market. When you are holding the phone in your hand it feels like a cold piece of steel instead of a frail smartphone that could break at any moment. It is by far the only smartphone that truly redefines smartphone design with clever usage of materials and an overall plush look. 2. Ceramic Shield © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We’ve tested all of the iPhone 12 smartphones without a tempered glass and were astonished to see the durability of the screens on every phone. The iPhone 12 Series comes with an additional coating of protection which Apple calls ‘Ceramic Shield’. Apple has embedded ceramic crystals that make the screen four times more durable than ordinary glass screens on smartphones. We drop tested all four smartphones from waist level and all four devices were unscathed. The Ceramic Shield doesn’t necessarily prevent scratches but it does add an additional layer of durability that wasn’t present before. 3. Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The display on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are among the best we’ve seen on smartphones yet. It even won DisplayMate’s award for the best display on a smartphone and broke 11 records in the process. Video, photos and games look gorgeous where colours are vibrant, thanks to the highly accurate contrast ratio. 4. Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The iPhone 12 Pro smartphones are truly meant for users who want the absolute best when it comes to mobile photography. The iPhone 12 Pro is particularly awesome at capturing images in low light and thanks to the wider f/1.6 aperture, the iPhone 12 Pro is easily one of the best smartphones to use for night photography. We’ve managed to capture some incredible images at night during Diwali. Having said that, the new LiDAR sensor also aids in taking faster and more accurate images in low-light. Thanks to the new sensor, users can now capture Portrait images in the dark with more accuracy and have a faster camera running in darker environments. The LiDAR sensor truly does take Night Mode capabilities to the next level, thanks to which we can now use it in the ultra-wide mode as well. Check out our gallery from our reviews to know more about how good the cameras can be on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. 5. A14 Bionic © Apple Apple made the world’s first 5nm SoC in the form of A14 Bionic which is currently the most powerful chipset in the world. Not only is the chipset more powerful, but it is also the fastest and most efficient in its class. Geekbench 5 results are more than impressive and in real-world usage, the iPhone 12 Pro is easily one of the fastest phones we’ve ever used. It can run games like Genshin Impact, Samurai Jack and online multiplayer games at 60 frames per second without any dips or stuttering problems. The phone can also edit and transcode 4K videos without using too much power or by draining battery life. Even with heavy usage, the iPhone 12 Pro manages to last 14- 15 hours on a single charge. 6. MagSafe Charging © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla One of our favourite features on all of the iPhone 12 smartphones is the ability to attach MagSafe accessories. From cases to wireless chargers to even a leather wallet, Apple has truly expanded the use of accessories in its ecosystem. You can attach a MagSafe case or a leather wallet to the back of the phone without having to worry about it falling off. Each time you attach a MagSafe accessory, the iPhone 12 makes a sound and displays an animation. Similarly, using magnets also removes the problem of not having wireless chargers properly align with the coils in the phone. The MagSafe seamlessly attaches to the back of the phone and charges it using Qi wireless technology. Since the MagSafe charger attaches to the back of the phone, you can use your iPhone normally while having it charge wirelessly as well which is not the case with other wireless chargers.

  16. POCO is all set to launch its new phone, the POCO M3. We already got our first look at the phone last week and it looks like the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk Edition phone. It's an interesting design decision but we'll reserve our judgments for later. The company will be hosting an event to launch the phone tomorrow but they've already revealed some key specs of the phone. According to POCO, the M3 will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 662 processor and it'll have a 6,000 mAh battery inside. In addition to that, the company has also revealed the phone will sport a 6.53-inch display on the front and it'll have a triple camera setup at the back. The official teasers are also in-line with what POCO has revealed. #POCOM3 POP QUIZ What does 662 stand for? A. The number of days you have been in love with POCO. B.

For now, it certainly looks promising but it remains to be seen if/when it'll come to India and at what price. View the full article
  17. The iPhone 12 Pro Max might seem like the bigger version of the iPhone 12 Pro but it comes with camera upgrades that no other iPhone 12 comes with. It sets itself apart from the rest of the lineup with phenomenal photography capabilities and the largest display Apple has ever used on an iPhone. Fundamentally, the iPhone 12 Pro Max has a lot in common with the rest of the lineup - it has 5G support, uses an OLED display, and a squared-off design, similar to the rest of the phones in the lineup. The phone supports MagSafe charging, has the same ceramic shield coating and is powered by Apple's 5nm A14 Bionic chipset too. Here's what we think about the iPhone 12 Pro Max and why it's the best smartphone Apple has ever made: Design and Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The iPhone 12 Pro Max has the same design ethos as the iPhone 12 Pro, albeit in a larger chassis. The phone has the same squared-off design that has been influenced by the iPhone 4/5. While the design aesthetics remains the same, the Pro Max comes with a 6.7-inch OLED display making it the biggest iPhone Apple has ever made. When you first use the phone it does take some time to get used to the size due to its squared-off design. This design change also makes it harder to wield the phone at first until your muscle memory kicks in and you know how to exactly hold the phone. I can grip an entire basketball with one hand and still felt the 12 Pro Max was quite large. Apart from the big design, the iPhone 12 Pro Max uses the same design aesthetics as the iPhone 12 Pro. It has the same matte coating at the back and a stainless steel frame to give it that premium feel. The phone also has magnets inside like the other phones in the lineup which let accessories snap on to the back of the phone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The 6.7-inch OLED screen is the main attraction here as it not only makes the phone a bit taller, it also seamlessly fits with the large design of the phone. The display on the iPhone 12 Pro Max is probably the best we've used on a smartphone and the folks at DisplayMate also agree. It has already won the award for having the best display in a smartphone and broke 11 records at the same time. The display is probably the most vivid screen we've used with high image contrast accuracy, highest contrast ratio ever in a smartphone, and highest visible screen resolution. It really is a dream to use the display of the iPhone 12 Pro Max and it stands out the most when watching content on Netflix, Crunchyroll and other OTT platforms. The big display is also rated for HDR10 and Dolby Vision content which not many phones support at the moment. Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The iPhone 12 Pro Max's camera setup is largely the same as the iPhone 12 Pro but there are some differences that need to be pointed out. It has the same ultra-wide-angle sensor and selfie cameras. The main 12MP sensor has the same f/1.6 aperture lens for faster photography and better low-light performance. However, the main sensor is a bit different from the iPhone 12 Pro's as it has sensor-based optical image stabilisation instead of lens-based OIS that is found on the iPhone 12 Pro. This helps in better low-light imaging and capturing video with better focus than the iPhone 12 Pro. Even the Telephoto lens is a bit different on the iPhone 12 Pro Max as it is capable of 2.5x optical zoom as compared to 2x optical zoom on the iPhone 12 Pro. These small differences may not sound significant on paper, but in reality, it does result in better pictures and videos. Apple made the iPhone 12 Pro Max with one goal in mind i.e. the best camera smartphone on the planet. In our testing, we did find the iPhone 12 Pro Max's performance to be amongst the best we've ever seen on a smartphone. It takes incredible images in low-light compared to the smaller iPhone 12 Pro. Night Mode images from the iPhone 12 Pro Max have incredible balances and we managed to capture some awesome images this Diwali in Delhi even with all the smoke in the air. Our favourite shot happens to be a firecracker that we managed to capture without any warning. It also proves how fast the iPhone 12 Pro Max's camera really is even in low-light. Images captured indoors also look incredible with enough details and colour accuracy. Check out our gallery below to get more context: Performance The iPhone 12 Pro Max is powered by Apple's latest 5nm A14 Bionic chipset which also has a direct impact on the performance of the phone. It's currently the most powerful chipset for a smartphone and on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, we get to see its true potential. Even amongst all of the iPhone 12 Series phones, the Pro Max scored the highest in our benchmark tests. The phone scored 1592 (single-core) and 4096 (multi-core) in our Geekbench 5 test. It's faster than any of the new iPhones making it the fastest and most powerful amongst the lot. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Gaming performance on the iPhone 12 Pro Max remains largely the same where it can handle most of the graphic intensive games from Apple Arcade and the App Store. There were barely any frame-rate drops even when we played some of the games with the highest settings. The large screen is also a dream to use when playing games. The most impressive feat on the iPhone 12 Pro Max is its battery life which Apple doesn't really detail much. However, in our usage, the 12 Pro Max lasts about 19 hours on a single charge which is quite impressive when compared to Android smartphones that come with high capacity batteries. You can fast-charge the battery using any 18W PD charger and the UBS-C to lighting cable. Alternatively, you can use the wireless MagSafe charger that attaches to the back of the smartphone magnetically. The Final Say © unsplash/martin-sanchez The iPhone 12 Pro Max is perfect for photography enthusiasts who are looking for the extra edge. However, the highly expensive price tag is not for everyone and the cheaper iPhone 12 or the 12 Pro are still great options to consider as they are highly capable phones as well. However, if you want to capture the best images and video for social media and professional purposes, and have the best battery life in an iPhone, the 12 Pro Max is a great option to consider.
