Which iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro to choose?
You must already have a small idea on which iPhone of 2021 you want the most, but let’s take a closer look at their respective characteristics, starting with the iPhone 13 mini and the classic iPhone 13 which share a lot in common. . We find, for example, the same A15 chip (with a 4-core GPU) and the same 12 + 12 megapixel camera integrating wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle sensors which are 92% larger than last year. The True Depth camera on the front is also 12 megapixels and the notch that accommodates it has the merit of being 20% smaller than in the past.
The design is the same for both iPhone 13 and takes the straight edges introduced by the iPhone 12, with an aluminum outline. The real difference comes from the format, since the screen of the 13 mini is 5.4 inches with a definition of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels at 476 dpi while that of the classic 13 is 6.1 inches with a definition of 2,532 x 1 170 pixels at 460 dpi. The maximum brightness is 800 nits and the refresh rate is stuck at 60 Hz in both cases. The autonomy of the smartphone also differs between the two, where the mini version could collect 17 hours of video playback according to Apple, and 19 hours for the classic model. That’s respectively 1.5 hours and 2 hours longer than their predecessors.
As for this year’s “Pro” models, they have the merit of differentiating themselves on points to which Apple created a surprise, because it is the first time that the Cupertino company has done something like this. Indeed, the A15 chip of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max is not exactly the same as that of the previous ones, since the GPU this time has 5 cores, for more efficiency. It will be necessary to see if there are real differences in power on the benchmarksbut this difference in design does not seem insignificant.
The main focus is on the photo. Both benefit from a composition with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with x3 optical zoom, a 12-megapixel wide-angle and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, not to mention the famous LiDAR sensor always present. Here too, the sensors are 92% larger than last year to let more light through and improve the quality of detail, especially in low light. There are many new features, with Smart HDR 4, macro mode to take a photo 2 cm from the subject, portrait in night mode or even digital zoom up to x15. In short, it’s a safe bet that the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max are excellent photophones, even better than their predecessors.
We continue with another good news, since their screens finally take advantage of ProMotion to obtain a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, moreover adaptive from 10 Hz to save battery. The panel of the iPhone 13 Pro is 6.1 inches with a definition of 2,532 x 1,170 pixels at 460 dpi, as for the iPhone 13 therefore, and that of the 13 Pro Max goes up to 6.7 inches with a resolution of 2778 x 1284 pixels at 458 dpi. The maximum brightness finally climbs to 1,000 nits, which is 200 nits more than the classic and mini versions.
Apple finally announces 28 hours of video playback for the iPhone 13 Pro Max (i.e. 2h30 more than the iPhone 12 Pro Max) and 22 hours for the iPhone 13 Pro (i.e. 1h more than the iPhone 12 Pro) . The apple brand continues to improve the autonomy of its devices, the same for recharging which is particularly fast: up to 50% charge in 30 minutes with a 20 W adapter or more. Finally, note that the four iPhones are compatible with MagSafe accessories (15 W) and wireless chargers.
