Panel with outstanding calibration
Some facts about the screen of the iPhone 12 Pro Max have long been known: Apple donated the display a resolution of 2,778 by 1,284 pixels at 458 ppi. The screen diagonal measures 6.7 inches – that’s where the differences to the panel of the iPhone 12 Pro end. Both devices support the P3 color space and have a brightness of 800 nits – which increases to 1,200 nits if necessary. DisplayMate took another close look at the panel of the 12 Pro Max – and is enthusiastic about the excellent calibration.
Best smartphone display on the market
The 12 Pro Max is the new record holder in many categories – no smartphone on the market can compete with the iPhone in certain areas. The color accuracy (the visual impression is perfect), the contrast ratio and the maximum achievable brightness achieved the highest ratings that a smartphone has ever received. The energy efficiency of the panel is also impressive: the energy requirement is ten percent lower than that of its predecessor. Do the screens tend to have noticeable reflections? DisplayMate answers this question in the negative – Apple’s new flagship model does not set any new records in this discipline, but it still receives top marks. Overall, there is currently no smartphone that has a better screen, so the testers summed up – who consequently award the device the “Best Smartphone Display Award”.
