iPhone 13 Pro Max vs iPhone X Comparison

iPhone 13 Pro Max vs iPhone X: battle of the greats

The iPhone 13 Pro Max and the iPhone X are two iconic Apple smartphones on the market today. Although released 4-years apart from each other, there are still plenty of useful specifications that are catered for users today.

iPhone 13 Pro Max vs iPhone X: camera, battery, resolution, storage and design

Beginning with the exact release dates, the iPhone 13 Pro Max was released in September 2021, while the iPhone X was unveiled in November 2017. When it comes to technical specifications, there are some clear differences between these two devices. The display size of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is 6.7 inches compared to 5.8 inches for the iPhone X, and its resolution is 1284 x 2778 px compared to 1125 x 2436 px for the iPhone X. In terms of battery life, you can expect up to 4352 mAh from the 13 Pro Max compared to 2716 mAh from the iPhone X - this means that when web browsing or streaming video you can expect around 10 hours from an average charge with an iPhone 13 Pro Max versus around 6 hours with an iPhone X. The camera quality on both models is impressive but there's a clear difference here too - a triple 12 MP camera system with 12 MP selfie camera too for the 13 Pro Max, whereas the iPhone X has a dual 12 MP camera system and 7 MP selfie camera only - so if you're looking for a device that takes great photos then you'll want to go with an iPhone 13 Pro Max over an older model like the iPhone X. In terms of RAM capacity and storage capacity, again there's a clear difference between these two models: 6 GB RAM and up to 1 TB storage capacity for an Apple 13 Pro Max versus 3 GB RAM and up to 256 GB storage capacity for an iPhone X; so if you're looking for more power then again it's worth going with a newer model like this the 13 Pro Max over something older like the iPhone X. Finally when it comes to design both phones look sleek but they do differ slightly; while both come in multiple colors, the iPhone X is only offered in space gray and silver, whereas the 13 Pro Max has 3 additional colors on offer (gold, blue and green).

Clear winner: iPhone 13 Pro Max

It was no competition between the two models as the 13 Pro Max clearly has significant upgrades from the iPhone X, but this was expected due to the 4-year gap between the 2 smartphone releases. However, if you’re not too fussed about having the latest features and looking for a super-cheap smartphone, then the iPhone X can certainly fulfill this requirement. It's also worth noting that buying refurbished products such as iPhones can be great way not only to save extra money but also help reduce your environmental impact; by buying refurbished products instead of new ones we can help reduce waste and conserve resources which helps us all move towards greater sustainability!
