Review of Apple iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max: Top-Tier Phones
Same as powered by the new A15 Bionic chip, but watch out! For the first time, it is not the exact same A15 chip on the standard iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Mini. This year, Apple added an additional core core for Pro models, which should mean an increase in gaming or running other visually demanding apps. I noticed Genshin Effect ran small much smoother than the Pro Max than its predecessor. If you’re a heavy player, there may be a reason to take advantage of this especially tree. But for day-to-day tasks, my benchmark computing scores are no much higher than the results from last year’s A14 Bionic.
Apple says that it adjusts the battery packs to accommodate more batteries on both of these iPhones, and they are comfortable to last me a full day of heavy use. The iPhone 13 Pro Max, for example, hits an impressive seven -hour screen on time, with the regular Pro coming a little behind. As such, it would be nice if an iPhone could finally last two full days. now that be a part of Pro.
It may have been brought in by Apple sensor-shift stabilization the tech of the main camera on every iPhone 13 model, but the Pro iPhones have more different cameras than the cheaper siblings. Sure, they all have an ultrawide and a main camera, but on the Pro, both can provide light. That helped produce sharper photos at night. Afterwards there is an additional 3x optical zoom camera for even more innovation; it can zoom closer to your subject than the Pro could last year.
All three cameras are very reliable. You can take a more detailed and vivid photo after sunset, especially now that Apple’s Night Mode operates on all three sensors. I just wish the camera was better about automatic awakening in Night Mode; always, I get better results after hand opening it when it’s clear it’s dark enough. Then there’s Portrait Mode, which works very well with my dog’s shots, and thanks to the Pro-exclusive touch sensor, you can take Night Mode photos with the best results from rivals like Google Pixel 5.
The ultrawide camera can autofocus at this time, and so it carries double the functionality of the Pro models and doubles as a macro camera. Macro is another feature that can be used by almost everyone cheap android phone, but Apple offers some of the best image quality here. The camera will automatically act on it when you are about to approach a subject. You can get close to 2 centimeters a distance of 0.78 inches! It’s great for bugs, plants, and my dog’s snoot. It still works in video mode. It’s a fun addition, but I’ve tried macro cameras on other phones before and inevitably end up with it being a feature I completely forgot about. I done there are some problems with autofocus in macro mode; it kept shifting as I tried to control it, so I recommended using a tripod. The camera also keeps switching to the main camera (no dedicated macro mode). To make the experience as smooth as possible, switch first to the ultrawide camera and then move closer to your subject. That way, it won’t try to move the sensors when you move away. (Apple says it will add a toggle to prevent it from shifting in an update later this year.)
It’s a very good camera system, but there’s nothing alone here that gave it a huge edge over last year. Brighter and sharper photos are always welcome, but I want to see something… different, no different from the 10x optical zoom Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Something that is new Photographic Styles, which is a filter, but don’t call that. Technically it’s the style of photo you choose ago you take the photo-Rich Contrast, Vibrant, Warm, Cool-and Apple’s image processing agilely uses image changes that don’t affect things like skin tone. Let’s just call it a better filter, OK? But ambot what? This is not exclusive to Pro models.
On the other hand, the video mode, where I spend most of my time testing out these new Pro cameras, and it’s all because of the Cinematic Mode. I took photos in Portrait Mode all the time, so you can imagine my excitement when it was brought to this new video mode. You get a blur effect, similar to the bokeh you get from professional cameras, around a subject. What’s unique here is that Apple recognizes topics and can automatically shift the focus to whatever the topic looks like as they turn their head. If the camera is faulty, you can easily edit the clip in renewal the target. This is unbelievable.
But there are some big caveats in Cinematic Mode. You are prohibited from capturing video in 1080p, not in 4K. It also needs a lot of light to use effectively, so it won’t go out at night or in low light. I also have a hard time focusing-if I look at a door, my dog at a small distance, or a tree, the focus keeps me on, so I have to manually to tap the screen to change it (while filming or post-capture).
Apple says the effect is most effective when switching between two faces, and when I tried it with my partner, the camera done correctly shifting focus to her to turn her back on me.
