In this article you can read how the latest high-end smartphone OnePlus 12 compares to the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max. These are the differences!

OnePlus 12 vs iPhone 15 Pro Max

When it comes to weight, it really doesn’t matter whether you have the OnePlus 12 or choose the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The latter is exactly 1 gram heavier and that is of course negligible. The OnePlus 12 is slightly longer and slightly thicker than the iPhone 15 Pro Max, but the differences are small. What about the other specifications? We put them together for you!

Overview

A large and a slightly larger screen

The screen of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is already quite large at 6.7 inches. The slightly longer OnePlus 12 has a slightly larger screen, namely 6.82 inches. As a result, the screen-to-body ratio of the OnePlus 12 is also slightly higher (90.8 percent vs. 89.8 percent). The OnePlus screen, with 3168 x 1440 pixels, also has a higher resolution than the iPhone (2796 x 1290 pixels). Both devices have an always-on display.

Aluminum vs titanium

The iPhone 15 Pro Max is the first iPhone with a titanium casing. The housing of the OnePlus 12 is made of aluminum. Titanium is heavier, but also stronger than aluminum. The iPhone is protected against dust and water according to the IP68 certification (waterproof up to 6 meters for 30 minutes). The OnePlus is stuck at the IP65 certification and is not waterproof when submerged.

Main cameras with many megapixels

Both the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the OnePlus 12 have a main camera with many megapixels. The iPhone has 48, the OnePlus even 50. With f/1.6, the OnePlus 12 also has a slightly larger aperture than the iPhone 15 Pro Max (f/1.8).

Furthermore, the OnePlus 12 has a 64 MP periscopic lens with an aperture of f/2.6 and a 3x optical zoom. The periscopic lens of the iPhone 15 Pro Max has 12 MP, an aperture of f/2.8 and a 5x optical zoom. The ultra-wide-angle lens of the OnePlus has 48 MP, the iPhone’s is stuck at 12 MP.

We only find a LiDAR scanner on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. This sensor determines the distance to an object, allowing you to take sharper portrait photos. The OnePlus 12 has a sensor for light color identification.

The selfie camera of the OnePlus 12 also has more megapixels than the iPhone 15 Pro Max (32 MP vs 12 MP). At f/1.9, the iPhone does have a larger aperture than the OnePlus (f/2.4).

Sensors and batteries

For most iPhone users, Face ID has become indispensable. However, this function is not available on the OnePlus 12. It has a fingerprint sensor. It is optical and is concealed under the screen.

The iPhone has a Li-Ion (Lithium-ion) battery with a capacity of 4441 mAh, the OnePlus has a Li-Po (Lithium-polymer) battery with a capacity of 5400 mAh. The iPhone has a battery life of about 14 hours, the OnePlus lasts a little longer at over 17 hours. By the way, the OnePlus battery charges a lot faster with the right adapter than that of the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Storage and working memory

With the OnePlus 12 you can choose from the following amounts of storage and RAM: 256 GB and 12 GB RAM, 512 GB and 16 GB RAM, 1 TB and 16 GB RAM, 1 TB and 24 GB RAM. The choice for the iPhone 15 Pro Max is as follows: 256 GB and 8 GB RAM, 512 GB and 8 GB RAM, 1 TB and 8 GB RAM. There is no difference in terms of storage space, but even more so in terms of working memory.

OnePlus 12 vs iPhone 15 Pro Max: conclusion

The OnePlus 12 has the best specifications in many respects and is also cheaper than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. However, that does not necessarily mean that the OnePlus is better. With the iPhone, the hardware and software are perfectly matched and that is actually not the case with any other smartphone. This results in more speed, better photos and longer battery life.

The iPhone 15 Pro Max has been available since September 2023. It is therefore logical that the OnePlus 12, which has only been available since this month, has better specifications. Nevertheless, the iPhone is better protected against water with its titanium casing and has a LiDAR scanner and a 5x optical zoom.
