Design

1.is dustproof and water-resistant
βœ”Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max
βœ”Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
βœ”Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max
βœ”Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.weight

228g

240g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.thickness

7.4mm

7.65mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.width

78.1mm

78.1mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.height

160.8mm

160.8mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The waterproof depth rating indicates how well the device is protected against water ingress and water pressure. Devices which can withstand more water pressure are better for swimming or diving.
The Ingress Protection (IP) rating classifies the degree of protection against dust and water. Higher ratings are better. For example, a device rated IP68 can resist immersion into water for a certain time, specified by the manufacturer.
9.volume

92.93cmΒ³

96.07cmΒ³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.pixel density

458ppi

458ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

1284 x 2778px

1284 x 2778px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass

Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.has an IPS screen
βœ–Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max
βœ–Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
6.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
βœ”Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max
βœ”Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.

9.brightness

1200nits

1200nits

A nit is a measurement of the light that a display emits, equal to one candela per square meter. Brighter displays ensure a screen's contents are easy to read, even in sunny conditions.

Performance

1.RAM

6GB

6GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
2.CPU speed

2 x 3.1GHz & 4 x 1.8GHz (Apple A14 Bionic)

2 x 3.2GHz & 4 x 2GHz (Apple A15 Bionic)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
3.has an external memory slot
βœ–Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max
βœ–Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.Has integrated LTE

8.Uses big.LITTLE technology
βœ”Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max (Apple A14 Bionic)
βœ”Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max (Apple A15 Bionic)
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.
9.Has integrated graphics
βœ”Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max (Apple A14 Bionic)
βœ”Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max (Apple A15 Bionic)
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
