iPhone 12 Vs iPhone XS Max! (Comparison) (Review)

by birtanpublished on November 7, 2020

Welcome back everyone time to do another comparison this time around between the newly released iphone 12 and the kind of older iphone the iphone 10s max now both these phones were kind of flagship i mean the iphone tennis max was the flagship flagship of that year the iphone 12 has gone up in value making it closer to the flagship price and that's why i'm kind of weirded out with the iphone 12 this year but i'll save that for a different video now the iphone tennis max obviously isn't a thousand dollar phone anymore 10.99

It now you can pick these things up for like around five hundred dollars even less than that on a lot of places the iphone 12 brand new cost 829 dollars but i'll find the cheapest ones of both these link them down in the description below you can get them from there and i'll support the channel at the same time now side by side you can definitely see the iphone 10s max is a far bigger phone than the iphone 12 and rightfully so i mean that iphone 10s max has that 6.5 inch amoled display i mean this thing was a really good phone when

It came out and the screen was really really nice you have very little bezel around the whole entire display you have the notch up top and and for the most part it's a really really good panel i mean anything you're going to do with it you're not going to feel like the 12 or the 12 pro even the 12 pro max from what i've heard i haven't used a 12 pro max but even with the 12 pro all these panels are pretty much the same i would not go from a 10s max to the 12

Or 12 pro or even maybe even a 12 pro max i don't know that one yet because it hasn't came out but i'm going to assume i wouldn't go for those phones just because of the screens in my opinion now the iphone 12 on the other hand does have a 6.1 inch panel so a little bit smaller but the phone does feel pretty small in the hand compared to the 10s max because they made the sides completely flat on this phone and honestly that really kind of shrunk down the body bezel of it entirely

Because of the curved display and the curved body of the iphone 10s max there's a little bit more of a bezel to it in a way the iphone 12 the iphone 12 and the 12 pro kind of eliminated that which is really cool there's still a little bit of bezel but it's not as bad as something maybe even like a tennis max but even the tennis max is not bad at all so definitely when it comes down to the panels the iphone tennis max i think looks you know just as good as the iphone 12 but i don't think there's like a

Huge you know reason to go from a tennis max to 12 or vice versa just because of the panels but if you like a bigger phone then the tennis mic is probably the one for you now in terms of the thickness the iphone tennis max is definitely a thicker phone and you can kind of feel it when you're feeling both in the hand now the one thing about the iphone 12 though is that because apparently it's a little bit thinner from the previous model but it feels a little bit thicker than the previous model because you're always going to be

Feeling that thicker part with the tennis max it is a thicker phone but you're not necessarily always feeling the thickest part the thickest part is like over here but you're kind of just feeling a curve so you're kind of feeling it thinner it feels thinner but it's a little bit harder to explain hopefully you guys get it and on the back we have dual camera setups on both as well as glass backs i do have a skin on my tennis max but the 12 still feels really good i mean the 12 has a really good glass back

The iphone 7s max has the exact same glass pack as far as i know no frosted backs or anything like that now on the outside of the iphone 12 you do have that magsafe capability now it's on the outside but it's internally so you can you know connect those magsafe charges which is really cool you have better ip certification on the iphone 12 as well which is really awesome and so in terms of the outside that really pretty much covers it up for the most part now hitting on the software lifecycle of

Both the iphone 12 is definitely going to outlast the iphone 10s max the tennis max came out in 2018 so it's just a given it's not going to last as long as something like an iphone 12 and definitely when it comes down to it i still think the iphone 10s max is going to last for a very long time it's not like tomorrow either one of these devices are going to be outdated you can pick up the iphone 12 or you can pick up the iphone xs max and still feel like you have a pretty good performing phone in terms of the

Software you're getting day one updates the same day the iphone 12 gets an update it's probably going to be 99 of the time the same day the tennis max gets an update as well so that's a pretty big asset for both phones i don't think one is going to crazily outlast the other one like twice as long but definitely if you're thinking long term the iphone 12 is going to outlast the iphone tennis max when it comes down to software updates now let's go and hit on a little bit of

A speed comparison between them the iphone 12 has that apple a14 bionic chip with four gigabytes of ram the iphone 10s max has that apple a12 bionic chip with four gigabytes of ram as well so let's go and see which one is the faster phone between both of these okay now that we're back let me go and clear all the apps in the background and i thought they were clear on the iphone 12 but i guess not but luckily it's pretty fast to clear these out so and i totally screwed that one up let's do safari and let's go and load up some web

Page so i'm just going apple.com321 and you can see iphone 12 definitely was faster there and i just realized this light wasn't on the whole entire time so hopefully it looks better now and in my opinion there really wasn't a crazy big difference between them in terms of loading that web page up let's do the app store three two one definitely the iphone 12 was the fastest one there too scrolling through you may be able to see they look kind of the same not a ginormous difference but definitely when it came down to it

The iphone 12 was the faster one there now i have a bunch of these third party apps we can get into let's do temple run two three two one and as you can see the iphone 12 is noticeably faster than the iphone xs max not like a crazy big difference but definitely a noticeable one for sure the iphone 12 right there was faster the iphone tennis max a little bit behind getting into some gameplay let's see if there's going to be a ginormous difference and as expected it's not really looking

Like the case both of them are about the same when it comes down to the speed performance aspect let's go and do bofa three two one and iphone 12 pro iphone 12 was faster iphones had a smacks a little bit behind suit dropbox three two one iphone 12 again is faster iphone tennis max a little bit behind let's do quizlet three two one twelve again is faster tennis max a little bit behind netflix three two one and the iphone 12 was slightly faster the iphone tennis max was just a little bit behind it but not a big one

Snake vs block 321 and the iphone 12 again was the faster one the iphone tennis max as expected was just a little bit behind it again and that really pretty much covers that one thank you three two one again iphone 12 is the faster one and the tennis max who would have guessed it was a little bit behind gameplay-wise they look about the same i don't really think there's a actually when i swiped out of that game it looked a little bit more steadier here stack or stack321 and the iphone 12 again was the faster

One let's go ahead and get into a little bit of some gameplay and i think they're going to be roughly about the same i don't think there's going to be that big of a difference between them and i already screwed myself up here fruit ninja 321 and again the iphone 12 is the faster one the tennis max i know you guys already heard it before but tennis max kind of stuck there for a second i don't know why it stuck there for so long and i think gameplay is going to be about the same here too i'm definitely

Seeing some pretty big differences in terms of the app opening speeds let's do instagram three two one i think i'm already logged in here so i probably won't even count that one paper out two three two one now i think that's i'm already kind of saying something you know the tennis max is slower to open up these apps and in terms of the gameplay they're going to be about the same i think and that's probably how it honestly sum it up and ram management should be

Theoretically the same too but i'll test on a second now the paper out 2 on the tennis max did stutter up a little bit so kind of keep that in mind you're just going to be getting overall better performance i think from a 12. let's go and open up facebook three two one twelve is faster tennis max and otis will be behind twitter three two one again the 12 is faster tennis max behind it it's gonna do snapchat or really racing three three two one i thought it had snapchat i

Guess i don't have it and we i've always been running into these super weird issues on these phones it's like the app or like load back in and that's so weird i don't get it i think the iphone 12 will probably be faster and the iphone 12 was faster and the iphone tennis max is going to be a little bit behind it so i think what i've been pretty much seeing consistently is if the iphone 12 is overall faster than the iphone 7s max and i say that confidently i think there may be a time where the

Iphone 7s max may be a little bit faster and the ram should directly as i think is better than the iphone 12 and i think the ram is actually better on the iphone 12 than the iphone x max and actually i take that back well we restarted on this one and i think for sure the speed and performance is going to be better on the iphone 12 100 fact the ram management is kind of going back and forth between both but i think to load these apps up and gameplay and everything i think the gameplay may be somewhat similar but just the kind of animations

And opening apps and all that stuff i'm seeing kind of a consistent winner on the iphone 12. so definitely when it comes down to both these in terms of a ram management standpoint i feel like it is a lot and i won't say a lot faster i would say it's noticeably faster than the iphone 10s max for sure so if you're getting one because of the performance you're going to be getting better performance off the iphone 12 than on the iphone xs max in my opinion so ain't even better ram management

Sometimes so in terms of performance that pretty much covers it up for let's go ahead on the cameras i'd forgotten already hit on the performance dual camera setups on both 12 megapixel wide 12 megapixel ultra right on the iphone 12 we have a 12 megapixel wide and then a 12 megapixel telephoto lens on the iphone x max now looking at the user interfaces on both i can definitely tell you they are more similar than not there's like very little differences between these two and i would not

Necessarily go from one device to the other just because of the way they look but definitely i think the bigger differences lies in the front cameras you can do 4k 60 on the front camera of the iphone 12 where we can only do 1080p on the front camera of the tennis max it may not be a big deal to you but you're going to be getting a better front-facing camera from something like an iphone 12 than on the iphone tennis max in terms of the camera module

I've always found that the tennis max had a pretty good camera module for the most part it wasn't really i don't even think it was the best camera of that year but it was a pretty good camera and i think anybody you know everyone who uses a tennis max would probably say the same thing now with that telephoto lens you can zoom in a lot to a photo you still have portrait mode 4k 60 all that crazy stuff but you don't have an ultra wide sensor and i would rather have an ultrawide sensor than the telephoto lens to be

Completely honest and in this case this is a perfect example the tennis max is quality the camera crispness and all that stuff it's very good on the iphone 10 and smacks but it falls into areas not having an ultra white sensor but also not having a really deep like it has a decent front-facing camera but it's not the best and i really wish it was a little bit high resolution on the tennis max on the iphone 12 it has a really good quality back facing camera this is horrible lighting in this photo but

I can definitely tell you i've taken photos on this thing i've taken photos on my 12 pro now and the front camera the back camera it's a very good module for sure now the same thing could be said here you wish it had a telephoto lens or whatever but i actually do like the ultrawide sensor a little bit more i like having both to be honest that's why the 12 pro or 12 pro max is the better way to go but definitely when it comes down to these cameras the iphone 12

Is the better camera at the end of the day and that you're getting a 4k 60 at the front camera as well which is really nice the tennis max's camera is good enough and i think for a majority of people out there who are shooting videos and making snapchats and things like that it's gonna be perfectly fine on a phone like a tennis max but if you want it a little bit better of quality and everything the 12 is probably the better way to go when it comes down to it so in terms of that that pretty much covers

It up now ending it off with the battery life i'll actually be doing a battery comparison hopefully tomorrow but i can give you a kind of an idea maybe the iphone 12 will have pretty much the same battery life as the iphone x max i don't think one is going to be way better than the other one but again if i had to assume maybe the iphone 10s max may not be as good as d12 but again i'll let you guys know whenever i do that battery comparison which should be

Sooner than later so in terms of that that pretty much covers up everything and to kind of you know sum up the whole entire video and to answer the question should you get the tennis max should you get the iphone 12 should you keep your iphone's on smash or your 12 what i can tell you is is that if you have an iphone 10 s max you really don't need to go to an iphone 12 or any version of the iphone 12 including the 12 pro or 12 pro max i think the iphone 10s max is still a really really good device

And i'll be completely honest i think if you're going to go from one phone to the other i would recommend going from a tennis max to an iphone 11 pro max not even the brand new 12 pro max because the 11 pro max is a very good phone has bigger batteries than any of the iphone 12 series and it's a very good performing phone still great cameras and everything like that and it's cheaper than what a 12 pro max is so i would 100 recommend going for an iphone 11 pro max

But if you don't want to if it's between these two i guess the iphone 12 is the better phone it's better in almost every single category besides like the size if you want a bigger phone to go for the tennis max but i think the iphone 12 still has a lot going for it too you have a really good display you have really good cameras you have pretty decent battery life pretty similar on both you have really good ip certification great performance and again it's a very safe phone there's just not a lot of hate on it

It's a 829 dollar phone so it shouldn't be a bad phone at all and i think for a majority of people out there it's good enough for a lot of things you're going to do i would probably still recommend going to the 12 pro max or 12 pro because of the price difference but i think if you have a tennis max i would recommend keeping it there's still a lot of pros for this thing great display for the most part a big phone too if you like that and it's still pretty good in performance like it was just a little

Bit behind the twelve and i think this phone still has a lot going for it the cameras are pretty good battery life i think it would be similar maybe the 12 is a little bit better and again it's still supported for many many more years it's not like you're going to be outdated tomorrow and these things are much cheaper than a brand new iphone 12 so i would definitely tell you if it's between these two the tennis max is a better deal in my opinion and for anyone who has a tennis max

I would recommend keeping it or going to an 11 pro max or just waiting until the iphone 13s come out because those are apparently going to be like a pretty big upgrade but if you have an iphone 12 100 recommend keeping it too i mean i wouldn't go backwards like that but i think the choice is clear and if you have all the money go for the iphone 12 but if you don't if you want to save some money the tennis max is a very very good phone too and i would still probably be recommending things and i would probably

Even be recommending this even like a year or two later from now so that's really pretty much it if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment section below hit the like button know me so much but definitely hit that subscribe button every single subscriber that we get really discount so me so much if you guys could hit that also check out the other links down in the description as well my twitter my instagram my other channels more importantly that everything else i love every single one of you guys
