Like a lot of recent SmartPhones this was one of a range of models. Having told you about one of the lower specification’s model I now get to test the top of the range model – the one they use in the TV ads – so what does this latest offering from Apple have to temp you away from your current SmartPhone?

The Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max measures 16x7.8x1cm the last figure the thickness at the top left the square where the cameras protrude, the rest is .8cm thick, the weight is a substantial 240 grams probably due to using surgical grade stainless steel for the body.

The viewable screen is far larger than the other models in the range with the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 6.7inches the other items in the range are no more than 6.1 inches.

It is available in a choice of four colours Sierra Blue, Gold, Graphite and Silver.

You have a choice of four storage options, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB. The price I give at the end is for the 128GB option.

Cameras as always on recent phones are where the advances have been made and the ability to shift the focus is something that may temp you.

Viewing what you have just captured is seen in its best light with the Super Retina HDR display which can have a refresh rate of 120Hz.

The graphics processor is an all-new 5 core offering and using the improved battery life capability you can get up to 28 hours of video playback from a single charge.

The CPU is a six core offering with two performance and four efficiency cores.

The units three rear cameras are all 12MP they are wide angle and ultra-wide angle to get more in the frame when space restricts you moving further back. You also have true depth and telephoto so all normal everyday shooting is catered for. The one thing the majority of SmartPhone cameras does not have is optical zoom and here there is 3x zoom in and 2x zoom out capability along with the more normal digital zoom here its 15x.

The units screen is 2778x1284 pixels, there is plenty of brightness and only when you have sunlight straight onto the screen is it less than perfect.

Returning to the cameras you can capture 4K video at 24FPS, 30FPS and even 60FPS. There is slow motion capture at 120FPS in 1080P mode.

So far no minus points here is one that may cause a problem the charge cable is not standard with the other end being USB ‘C’ so think about where you can charge.

It takes good images and videos even in low light and that is what people seem to want.

Have we reached the limit for new features for the phone part with all the work seeming to be on the image and video side?

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is available from Vodaphone below for various prices from £62 per month with £49 upfront.
