Scott recently picked up the iPhone 12 Pro Max for shooting video. He says it feels solid, but it also feels heavy. He says the camera is so good, he uses it to shoot TV shows on a local cable network. But now he needs a TV with Dolby Vision to edit the video on it.
iPhone 12 Pro Max
Leo got the iPhone 12 Pro Max and he says it's HEAVY. It also has a larger screen for plenty of room. The pixels are larger, too, so he gets better low light performance with the three-lens camera. Leo also says that the camera "bump" is pretty prominent, as well. Leo also says that could cause the camera lenses to scratch over time because the phone will rest on the bump.
How is 5G? Leo doesn't know because it isn't available everywhere, and where it is, it's likely the low band 5G, which is about as fast as LTE.
Apple's 5G capable iPhone 12 has shipped and people are already complaining about bad battery life. Leo says that's because 5G Millimeter Wave isn't widespread and your phone is spending all its time searching for a 5G tower that isn't near you.
Leo's waiting for the iPhone 12 Pro Max because of its third camera. That will be available on November 6.
Leo says that this coming Tuesday, Apple will announce four new iPhones, including the smaller 5.4" iPhone Mini. There will also be a 6.1" iPhone 12, and iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7" iPhone 12 Pro Max. Prices will start at $799. That's the rumor, anyway. There will be six different colors and Dual cameras for the smaller iPhones and three cameras for the pro versions. The pro versions will also have Gold, Silver and Graphite blue colors. Lidar will also be added for augmented reality, which Leo says nobody needs or wants.
