The Editor's Choice iPhone 12 Pro Max is the best iPhone you can buy. In our iPhone 12 Pro Max review, we found that the iPhone 12 Pro Max lives up to its name and isn't just a bigger iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone features a better camera than the regular iPhone 12 Pro and considerably longer battery life.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max has a larger main sensor than the iPhone 12 Pro, which is designed to deliver an 87 percent improvement in low light conditions vs the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The main lens on the iPhone 12 Pro Max also features a fast f/1.6 aperture and a LiDAR sensor for faster auto focus.

On the Tom’s Guide battery test — which involves continuous web surfing over 5G — the iPhone 12 Pro Max lasted 10 hours and 53 minutes. That's nearly two hours longer than the regular iPhone 12 Pro, which endured for 9:06.
