I think the most optical zoom offered in a phone is 10x from Oppo and Huawei. Even though Samsung goes to 50x, the optical zoom is only to 5x. Think Apple prioritise portrait mode, which a 2x works well for.I feel this is more of an advert for the 12PM than a review to be honest. And that's coming from someone who's buying one!
The cameras are only very slightly improved on the normal 12 and the 12 pro, with the only really noticeable difference being the extra zoom on the telephoto (Which, Apple, you should take notice of, other phones are offering 50x or even more zoom which means you can get shots you simply can't get on an iPhone), so if your only reason for getting a PM over a normal 12 or 12 pro then you are wasting your money. I'm also disappointed the battery doesn't provide that much life over the smaller models - you would hope for a more significant bump given the extra space. But otherwise it's definitely a good phone and looking forward to playing with it on Friday.

On the Max, they usually beat the Android competitors from what I've seen on Youtube.More battery life would be nice and it isn't something that Apple have excelled at in the past, but an Android phone doesn't fit into an Apple ecco system in the manner an iPhone does.
Battery comparisons are a waste of time. In real world use, nobody uses their phone like the tests.I saw a battery comparison with other similar screen size Android phones and even with last year's 11 Pro Max on YouTube, and this model came out the worst.
It's the best iPhone every year because they make incremental upgrades.Every year its the same "The best iPhone yet" with glowing reviews from everyone this is getting boring when in reality apple have been playing it safe and just making incremental updates rather than be brave and give some thing next level!
It just feels like the media give a free pass to apple if it was another brand churning out the same they would cry blue murder!
Well not necessarily look at LG with the Wing phone, granted it maybe not for everyone, and Samsung with their fold phone's. My daily driver is the Galaxy Z Fold 2 awesome phone it not as fragile as one would be led to be believed. I've been using it for over month like anyway other phone not babysitting.Other brands do chuck out the same. I think the days of quantum leaps on a phone are over now. It’s just gonna be faster processors, better screens and better cameras now. The next big thing probably lies elsewhere

And by the way I'm not a apple basher I did have an iPhone X and currently own iPad Pro and Macbook Pro
I’m going to have to agree to disagree with you, yes some come companies come out with anything for the sake of it and in most cases they are gimmicks, poorly executed etc.... Not so with the Samsung Fold, I’m using one for over month and I cannot go back to normal slab phone, for me the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is actually two devices in one a Phone and Tablet and I think Microsoft with their Surface Duo is another game changer in how we use our phones. The coming years will be exciting for smartphones.I think what Apple have done well is work from what consumers want and design a product for that. There’s little point in going down the gimmick route. Like curved tv screens, folding phones will be something we look back at snd think ‘why?’. Innovation for innovations sake is pointless.
