Design & Build Quality

It has ceramic shield glass at the front. Apple claims that the front glass is tougher than any other smartphone out there, which is true because ceramic glass is made by Corning, the same company that makes Gorilla Glass.

The iPhone screen might be tough, but it scratches easily. So if you’re planning on using the iPhone 13 or any other Apple smartphone, get a screen protector and a case. The frame is made from stainless steel, and the rear is made from glass.

NOTE: The glass at the rear isn’t as strong as the front, so that’s another reason why you must use a case.

It weighs 249g with an IP68 rating for dust and water-resistant, so even if you get beaten by the rain, there is nothing to worry about.


The iPhone 13 Pro Max comes with a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with variable refresh rate. It can go down to as low as 10Hz and to 120Hz. That’s one of the reasons the battery life on the iPhone 13 Pro Max is very good.

The display has a resolution of 1284 by 2887 pixels with accurate colours and support for HDR content.

It’s good for consuming media content, and the notch won’t interfere when you are watching any video. You might think it would, but it will disappear when you start playing the video.

Processor, Gaming & Multitasking

The A15 Bionic chip, which is a 5nm chipset, can handle anything you throw at it like it’s nothing. It plays both PUBG and Call of Duty at very high graphics and maximum frame rates, gameplay is very smooth on this device.

True multitasking isn’t something that exists on the iPhone. The iPhone 13 Pro Max has 6GB of RAM. It can remember all the apps you’ve used before, but you can’t use split-screen unless you modify your phone through jailbreaking.

The iPhone does a decent job of reopening apps where you left off. However, if you want real multitasking and the ability to split your screen, the iPhone 13 Pro Max might not be the best choice for you.

Camera & Video Recording

Moving to the cameras, the front camera has a 12-megapixel sensor and it takes really good pictures. Portrait shots look amazing; the skin tone it produces looks great. The way the iPhone processes its pictures would make you think you’re the best photographer alive because it’s really easy to take good-looking pictures with it.

For the rear camera, the iPhone 13 Pro Max comes with a 12-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto camera, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera. The pictures captured by the iPhone are simply impressive, and it’s going to make you bring out your smartphone more often to take pictures. Creating videos is where the iPhone 13 Pro Max shines.

You can record 4K videos at 30FPS, and the video quality has been more than sufficient for me.

Battery Life & Charging

The iPhone 13 Pro Max Sports a 4352mAh battery, and you can get up to 10 hours of on-screen time over a single charge. You can charge this device from 0-100% in just 1hr and 40 minutes. It has an amazing battery life compared to the previous models, so battery life would be an issue here.


The only thing I don’t like about the iPhone 13 Pro Max is the weight, I think it is too heavy. Another thing is the fact that Apple is still reluctant to improve on the multitasking side of things. Let me know your thoughts on this device in the comment section.
