I’m undecided on whether to get the 12 pro or 12 pro max, is it worth spending more money for the larger battery, screen, better cameras, and the sensor-shift stabilization for the cameras? I’ve had the iPhone X since it launched

What about those of us wanting a 13 pro max but needs a pop socket & still wants to use the MagSafe charge? Also what about vehicle charging? I currently have a 7 plus & I NEED to upgrade. With that said it sounds like I’m going to have to buy all new everything! 😔

I just bought the pro max in gold upgrading from a 7+. (Bye bye home button)
The stainless steel sides are breath taking and the rims around the camera’s lenses too. The larger cameras don’t bother me nearly as much as I thought they would.
What I’m hung up on though is the size of the screen & the shade of cream colored “gold”.
My ocd would rather have a white phone than an off white phone pretending to be gold. Lol.
The siding doesn’t show with a case on so I can’t enjoy the selling point of the gold..I’m considering switching to the silver& white phone.
The gold just doesn’t HIT the way Apple advertised it to be at all. Is that just me being crazy? Or does anyone agree?
Size wise should I just try and get used to the larger phone for the camera quality as a trade off? Or should I drop down to the 12 pro?
I was considering an 11 before this video but I think you’re right. It’s not worth it.
What do you think I should do.
I’m a mess
& I need to decide like.. lol today

That was really super helpful .. I still think I will go for the 12Pro … although it seems to be the least popular solution. But one of the reasons why I am switching is that I love to take pictures and I am not carrying my camera with me anymore, because the pictures that even my old iPhone Xs take are amazing. So is it worth taking the 12 Pro instead of the 12 because of the camera?

Wellllll....if you are used to the larger screen of iPhones from 7 and up......don’t buy the baby sized iPhones! You’ll regret the small size of the screen....you lose a LOT of ability...especially when viewing maps. I just ditched my 2016 SE for the only upgraded phone I could afford..an 8 plus. I just couldn’t operate that tiny phone anymore ....yeah I’m 70 and the old eyes ain’t what they used to be....

I think many younger buy pricy for the look just to express that they can afford something, although there is people that have a job an a great camera is essential other than that we should go on strike and not buy so Apple gives back our chargers and headphones like dude I feel they really taking advantage how people are jobless but still buying they saw regardless they banking on us man

The Pro features are extremely useful...pretty bad how you just made it seem like nothing. 800 nits vs 625 can make the phone way more useable outside.
Does the iPhone 12 have the same low light quality/ capability for videos that the 12 pro and pro max has?
