Of all the new iPhones, we are very impressed with the iPhone 13 Pro. The OLED display is excellent, the hardware is fast and sturdy, and the software works very well. The cameras are of good quality. We mainly mean speed, consistency, and video quality, because the selfie camera and the telephoto camera (which you can zoom in/out with) aren’t very special.
The iPhone 13 Pro is recognizable by its straight sides instead of the rounded corners and is also much smaller than the other smartphones we recommend. If you are looking for a relatively small smartphone with a good camera, the iPhone 13 Pro is recommended.
If you prefer a smartphone with a longer battery life, iPhone 13 Pro Max is the best option. There are photo opportunities on both devices that we haven’t seen like this on other devices.
The camera is the most important improvement over all the iPhone 13 devices. The iPhone 13 and 13 Mini share the same cameras, and the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max share the same cameras. We’re glad Apple no longer requires you to buy the biggest device if you want the best cameras: so our recommendation is the more accessible iPhone 13 Pro.
The cameras on the back have a larger sensor than the iPhone 12 predecessors, which has a positive effect on the light and, accordingly, the quality of the photos. The telephoto camera can zoom in at 3x (compared to 2.5x or 2x with the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro), but it’s slightly less sensitive to light.
