The iPhone 12 Pro Max brings together everything that is more expensive, better – and bigger – made by Apple for 2020. A robust screen, the most advanced chipset from Apple, the A14 Bionic, and the LiDAR sensor.
But today we will talk about the screen. It has a 6.7-inch OLED sensor with a refresh rate of 60Hz and a resolution of 1284 x 2778 pixels, which deliver a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a density of 458ppi. This set was analyzed by renowned analysts of the DxOMark Ranking in the displays category.
In these tests, “a variety of objective and perceptual tests are carried out under controlled laboratory and real-life conditions”. And the overall score was 88 points, behind only its most direct competitor, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which is one point ahead, with 89. The second place on the iPhone 12 Pro Max comes tied with the OnePlus 8 Pro, and puts the Apple model just one point ahead of its smaller brother, the iPhone 12 Pro.
Analysts note that the iPhone 12 Pro Max has “strong overall performance, rendering the content accurately for readability in most conditions tested, adapting color and brightness very smoothly as conditions change”. They highlight a strong video performance, which has HDR10 content certification.
On the other hand, there are criticisms of a strongly yellowish hue, seen in all conditions tested on video and static images, which impacted the score. There are also points of improvement in the brightness levels, considered to be low, especially in low light conditions, and the blue light filter generates a strong orange tone and dark areas that affect reading.
In conclusion, DxOMark points out that the iPhone 12 Pro Max honors the tradition of high quality devices, being excellent for video playback, with great brightness for HDR10 content, and that the yellowish tone is often a characteristic of Apple devices.
