iPhone 12 Pro Max Unboxing & First Impressions (Gold) – Apple’s BIGGEST Phone!

by birtanpublished on February 5, 2021

What's going on guys my name is wade with tech daily and in this video we're going to be unboxing the brand new iphone 12 pro max this is the biggest and most expensive iphone in the lineup this year and in fact it's actually the largest iphone apple has ever released there are quite a few other things that separate this device from the rest so let's go ahead and just get right into it and i'll go over everything you need to know about this new phone first things first

In regards to the unboxing experience there's not really anything that's different with this device compared to the other iphone 12s we've already unboxed but i'll go ahead and just quickly show off what all comes inside the package sliding off the lid the first thing we see is the iphone itself of course and right away you can really tell just how large of a device this thing is obviously i got mine in this nice gold color but it also comes in silver graphite and the new pacific blue color this year as well

We'll set it to the side for just a second and going a little deeper inside the box you'll find not much else at all just a mini-sized collection of paperwork and a single apple sticker as well as a lightning to usbc cable and as you guys probably know already apple has stopped shipping the power brick and headphones now to help reduce waste so everything from the box size to what all comes inside now is super minimal with all that stuff out of the way here

Is the iphone 12 pro max once again and like i said a second ago you really feel just how big this phone is this is a 6.7 inch device last year's iphone 11 pro max came in at 6.5 inches so not only are we getting a little bit more screen real estate in general like i said at the start this is also just the largest iphone apple has ever released and if you're curious here is how this 6.7 inch pro max stacks up against the regular iphone 12 pro which comes in

At 6.1 inches now this smaller iphone 12 pro is also actually bigger than last year's iphone 11 pro as well so both of these new iphone 12 pro phones get a decent bump up in screen size over last year's devices but with that pro max in particular i don't really think i can overstate just how large of a phone it is not only is it quite a bit taller but it's significantly wider as well compared to the regular 12 pro it's not any thicker but it's heavier

For sure and certainly a lot to handle for me i do generally like big phones but one handed use on this thing is a bit of a stretch to say the least you're definitely going to be doing some hand position shifting as you attempt to reach all four corners of the screen and areas like the notification center control center and app switcher and honestly even typing one-handed is kind of tough i'm much more comfortable using both thumbs with all that being said though

I think one of the biggest reasons you'd even consider this phone really is because of that huge screen and this is great when you're watching content for example it's really pretty nice to look at the 12 pro max offers apple's super retina xdr oled display with hdr 10 support it's bold it's super bright very colorful and it comes in at a resolution of 2778 by 1284 packing in around 458 pixels per inch that's not a particularly high

Resolution for a screen this size but i still think it looks plenty sharp and anything you want to watch is going to look great now i do want to point out that aside from the size the display technology on this phone the super retina xdr panel that's actually going to be the same on all of the other iphone 12s from the mini to the regular 12 to the smaller 12 pro so with this phone you don't get anything better just much much bigger and by the way all

These new iphone 12s this year have what apple is calling their ceramic shield coating across the front glass and this is supposed to make everything a bit stronger in the event of a drop i'm not gonna test that here glass is glass and it still has a chance of shattering but in theory it should be a little tougher than last year the rest of the phone of course is very familiar it's still an iphone after all and you can see a lot of the design cues on this iphone 12 are what we saw last year the front still has that large

Notch across the top for the speaker front camera and all the face id sensors so no change there and the body and frame are a combination of all glass and stainless steel the back is once again a frosted finish similar to what we had last year and it looks super nice and certainly feels premium the camera module also has a polished glass accent and pretty much everything else you see is the polished stainless steel now honestly i do think this gold color

Looks really nice but just keep in mind that almost immediately it will get covered in fingerprints the stainless steel gets smudged up pretty easily but if you can look past that this is absolutely the high-end premium looking smartphone that you would expect coming from apple taking a look around everything else is where you'd expect on the left side you'll find the silent switch volume buttons and the sim card tray towards the bottom

On the right is the power button and below that there's also a new sort of slit or little detail here this is just a 5g antenna and this is for iphones here in the us it's kind of hard to tell on camera also but it's not like gray or black in color it is the same sort of gold color as the other antennas around the phone and it isn't quite as obvious in person as it looks here down below there's the lightning port speaker and microphone grilles this phone does have a stereo speaker setup of course with the other speaker inside

The earpiece up top and around back the 12 pro max rocks a triple lens camera setup paired with that new lidar scanner and i'll talk about what all is going on here in just a second just one last thing to note about the housing of course this 12 pro max also has that hidden magnetic circular ring underneath the back glass and this is going to be used with all those magsafe accessories that apple now sells for these phones like the cases and the wallet add-on and the magsafe charger inside

The new iphone 12 pro max obviously packs apple's latest and greatest chipset the a14 bionic but just like with that oled display this new chipset also comes in all the new iphone 12s from the mini to the regular 12 to the 12 pro so no matter which phone you choose this year you are getting the fastest and most up-to-date processor with the ram this 12 pro max gets 6 gigs inside which is 2 gigabytes more than the 12 mini and regular iphone 12. so in that case

Going with either the 12 pro or the 12 for max does get you a little more and performance wise of course this new device is the fastest and most powerful iphone apple has ever made now with this 12 pro max you aren't necessarily paying for better specs but one big thing you do get over the rest of the lineup is a much bigger battery this phone has a 3687 milliamp battery inside which is almost 33 larger than the regular 12 pro now obviously that big battery still needs to power the

Huge display but generally speaking you should be getting the longest battery life on this phone under normal use compared to any other iphone 12 this year however with that being said if you had an 11 pro max last year it doesn't seem to be from initial tests at least any better than that phone and it's sort of interesting apple didn't really tout any real improvements to longevity really the only other thing you are getting in going with the 12 pro max

Is a slightly better camera setup this phone has three lenses around back the standard shooter the ultra wide and a telephoto lens now when compared to the 12 mini and regular iphone 12 for example those phones miss the telephoto lens and when stacked up against the smaller 12 pro that phone gets almost the same three lens setup but a less capable telephoto lens so for example this pro max has five times optical zoom

Versus just four times on the regular 12 pro and a little further digital zoom furthermore the telephoto lens itself can potentially let in way more light which could yield better low light shots and with video the 12 pro max should also offer even better stabilization than the rest of the lineup with its dual optical image stabilization of course you also have things like dolby vision hdr support at 60fps and the rest of the great features and improvements that are on the rest of the iphone

12s like night mode with all the lenses even the selfie camera and nighttime portrait shots too all in all it'll be interesting to see how much better the 12 pro max's camera setup actually is in comparison finally just a quick side note this new 12 pro max just like the rest of the iphone 12 lineup this year now does support the 5g network capabilities with this though it's really just going to depend on where you live what network you're on or if 5g is even supported by your

Carrier so all in all you'll need to do some research to see whether or not 5g is something you can take full advantage of it's really just going to depend on a lot and like i said in my last few iphone 12 videos i wouldn't necessarily get these new iphones specifically because of 5g simply because i think it still has a little ways to go so just to sum things up here in going with the 12 pro max you of course are getting a massive display

Potentially longer battery life with its much bigger size and a minor upgrade to some camera capabilities is that enough to justify the 100 price bump compared to the regular 12 pro well i think that's really going to depend on what you value in a phone but what do you guys think is the 12 pro max something you're considering let me know in the comments down below i'd love to know your thoughts of course but hopefully you guys did enjoy this video be sure to follow tech daily on twitter
