iPhone 13 Pro Max review: Apple’s heavyweight superphone


The iPhone 13 Pro Max Price in Pakistan is 360,000. The 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED display is excellent: clear, brilliant, and silky smooth, matching Samsung’s best. Faster screens, like pin-sharp retina panels before them, are a ratchet: once you use one, it’s tough to go back.

However, while it looks wonderful, its big dimensions and solid-feeling stainless steel sides come with a massive disadvantage: weight.

Last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max already was heavy at 226g, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max is even weightier at 240g. Direct competitors, such as Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra at 227g and Google’s Pixel 6 Pro at 210g, are much lighter than the normal iPhone 13 Pro, which weighs 204g. Several other devices are under 200g and the difference is quite discernible.

The weight of the 13 Pro Max is apparent in the hand, in your pocket, or in your bag, and it makes it difficult to hold one-handed for an extended period of time without being tired.

The iPhone 13 Pro cameras bring you even closer to your subject

A new macro option is available on the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, which activates automatically when you reach within a few centimeters of your subject. I went the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 to the Feast of the Field, part of the yearly Euphoria culinary event in Greenville, South Carolina, to put the cameras and Macro capability to the test. This resulted in a delectable camera test.


The way macro photography works is that as you go closer to your subject, the camera adjusts from wide to ultrawide mode automatically. With autofocus, the ultrawide can now lock focus on objects as close as a few centimeters away.

iPhone 13 Pro Max Review and Photography

Macro photography using the iPhone worked well in both bright and medium settings. It’s not quite as good as a mirrorless camera with a specialized macro lens, but it’s one of the finest macro modes I’ve seen on a smartphone. I photographed food, coffee, and even shot a terrifying video of ants crawling all over an abandoned grapefruit.

I learned two things at the event’s main dinner: For starters, gooseberries are wonderful. The iPhone also switches to the ultrawide camera to snap a macro photo in low-light situations. The wide-angle camera on the phone is the best, and it also performs well in low-light situations. Because the phone must be so close to the subject, some of the light is blocked, resulting in mediocre close-ups.


There is currently no method to disable the macro feature. According to Apple, a new feature will be enabled in a software update this fall that will allow you to disable automatic camera switching when taking macro photography and video at close distances.

Cinematic mode on the iPhone 13 Pro

A new function called Cinematic mode is available on all iPhone 13 Pro models. It creates a 1080p video at 30 frames per second using the back cameras or the True Depth camera array. The fact that everything except your subject is out of focus adds to the video’s appeal. Even a shifting focus from one topic to another is possible with the iPhone. It has a striking and amazing effect.
