“Best camera and incredible battery life.” What reviewers in the US are saying about the iPhone 13 Pro

Post a Comment

In Russia, pre-order for the new iPhone 13 will start only tomorrow, and in the USA the first reviews of the entire line have already been released. They are usually divided into pairs: the iPhone 13 mini was tested with the iPhone 13, and the iPhone 13 Pro was tested with the iPhone 13 Pro Max. In this news, we present excerpts from the review of the iPhone 13 Pro by the authoritative publication The Verge. Looking ahead, it can be noted that the author of the review liked the novelty, but it was not without criticism.

iPhone 13 Pro reviewer gave 9 points – a high result. Most impressed by the camera. Moreover, this time between the cameras of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, you can put an equal sign, since they do not differ at all, unlike the cameras of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

With enough light (for example, shooting outdoors on a sunny day), the photos taken by the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro cannot be distinguished – the iPhone 13 Pro manifests itself in low light: a larger sensor with larger 1.9 micron pixels, and the lens with an aperture of f / 1.5 does the trick: “Combined with some tweaks and tweaks to computational photography, the 13 Pro’s low-light performance is simply unmatched.“.

Here are some examples of shots taken with the iPhone 13 Pro at night:

When shooting in low light conditions, iPhone 13 Pro shots have less noise and a wider dynamic range. Apple has also tweaked the black point processing algorithms so that exposure is more accurate. Also, the iPhone 13 Pro is less likely to switch to night mode as often as the iPhone 12 Pro does.

The ultra-wide-angle camera is also improved in terms of more light capture, but the difference from its predecessor is not so pronounced here. The introduction of autofocus is much more interesting, which allows you to take very interesting photos, including in macro mode.

The iPhone 13 Pro debuts a new telephoto lens with 77mm EGF and 3x zoom (iPhone 12 Pro Max has 65mm and 2.5x zoom). It has become less aperture (aperture F / 2.8 versus F / 2.2), but this is compensated by the addition of night mode with a telephoto lens.

Below are many examples of photos taken with the iPhone 13 Pro camera.

Cinematic Mode is like portrait mode, only when recording video. However, unlike portrait mode, Cinematic Mode does not use lidar to determine the depth of field – face and body recognition is carried out exclusively in software. The magic of Cinematic Mode is to automatically switch focus from foreground to background. For example, if at first the face of a person is in focus, then as soon as the person begins to turn, the focus shifts to the background. Moreover, Cinematic Mode works with both the main camera and the front camera. But there are also limitations: the maximum video resolution in this mode is Full HD, and the mode does not work in low light conditions.

IPhone 13 screens are improved with new Super Retina XDR panels with ProMotion. The second part is especially important, as it was not there before. In fact, this means that the iPhone 13 Pro dynamically adjusts the frame rate in the range of 10 to 120 Hz. Therefore, for example, when scrolling quickly, the text does not blur, but remains readable. And when watching video, the frame rate of the screen adjusts to the frame rate of the stream. “This is an improvement that may only matter to some, but will subtly make life more enjoyable for everyone who uses it.”

Display, camera, and what about autonomy? She did not disappoint. The observer gives an example. The iPhone 13 Pro, when playing 4K videos at maximum screen brightness, worked from early morning until 23:00, while still having 20% ​​of the battery charge. Apple says the iPhone 13 Pro lasts 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro, and a reviewer confirms that.

As for the disadvantages, they include an average front camera (meaning the quality of photos and videos), a Lightning connector instead of USB-C and limitations of the Cinematic Mode. But otherwise, the iPhone 13 Pro didn’t disappoint. The opinion of The Verge is clear, but what do representatives of other specialized publications say about the iPhone 13?
