The i12 Pro Max beats Note 20U and Mate 40P in low light photography. Daylight photography is still not up to par due to minimal processing. As usual, potraits and videography is still where iPhone excels.

If you are upgrading from i11 to i12 Pro Max, it still makes sense. To regular i12 and i12 Pro? Useless. Besides the i12 series are plagued with software and hardware issues.

Gsmarena, please compare the cameras of :
1. Huawei Mate 40 Pro Plus
2. Huawei Mate 40 Pro
3. Samsung galaxy note 20 ultra
4. Iphone 12 Pro max
5. Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra
6. Pixel 5

Reason why Mate 40 Pro Plus and Mate 40 Pro needs to be seperately compared because they have an totakly different camera system.
Mate 40 Pro Plus has an OIS on the main camera, (the Pro model lacks OIS), An wider 14mm ultrawide lens compared to the 18mm on the Pro model, an additional 3x Telephoto lens, an 10x Optical zoom lens

I am finally going for an Iphone after 10 years of Android. Should i get the 11 Pro or the 12 Mini? Pricewise they are the same. Pros on the Mini: newest form factor, better wide angle camera, great size. Cons on the Mini: glossy back, worse battery, not such an ergonomic form factor, have to buy charger.
I would like advices, thanks.

If you have an iPhone 11 series phone, don't bother upgrading to the 12 series as there isn't much improvement overall like the improvements on their Android counterparts with big boy sensors.
Even the 12 pro Max as tested on YouTube didn't match up to the expectations and produces less sharp, softer images with weak secondary cameras like Ultrawide and telephoto.

Most of these things have percolated on budget Androids while iOS users left to the beg.

Nice camera shoot out review. There‘s really no point upgrading from 11 pro. Better save money for the pandemic emergency and wait for 2021 iPhones with much more improvements like 120hz screen and finger print reader. Entering passcode every unlock is so much cumbersome!

Bigger is always better.

Why this camera comparison? All have same sensor, similar image quality.
Plz give us camera comparison of all 2020 flagships.

Thank you GSMArena for this comparison. I am happy with my 11 pro Max, of course I am not a guy who upgrades every year.

For some mean reason I love how GSMArana has to mention at the end of any iPhone review something like, "well we had to write that whole load of words, because it's our job, but we know you don't care, because you're buying anyway"

12 and 12 = obviously equal due to same camera

12 pro = worse than 11 pro (Congrats to Apple !!!!!! )

  • AngryLithuanian

11 pro outdid both, am I right?
