    Review Summary

    Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is a recently introduced foldable smartphone by Samsung. The phone comes with Dual 120Hz displays, Snapdragon 888 processor, 5G connectivity, S-Pen support and an under display selfie camera. However, the phone is costly, has old camera specs and there is no in-built holder for the S-pen.

    On the other hand, Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max is an Apple phone that comes with the best performance because of the A14 Bionic chipset, a ceramic shield back glass that makes the design quite gorgeous, Super Retina XDR OLED Display, LIDAR camera technology and 4K HDR video recording. The list of USPs of this phone goes on and on but  it also has a few drawbacks like the absence of a 64GB variant, same old battery life and no in-box charging brick.

    We will now compare the detailed specifications of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 vs Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max.

    Processor and Storage

    Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 runs on Android v10 and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. The phone can perform better heat management and results in better performance so that one can play gaming sessions for longer hours. On the other hand, iPhone 12 Pro Max runs on iOS 14 and is powered by Apple A14 Bionic chipset. The phone is a better performer than most of the phones in this series. The phone can easily handle gameplay even if it is high-end games but the phone does heat up while heavy gaming. This might be quite disappointing because you are paying a huge amount for the phone. Overall, the phone is quite snappy and fast and there are no complaints at all.

    Camera

    Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 has a triple-rear camera setup similar to its predecessor which consists of a 12MP primary camera, 12MP Telephoto lens and a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens.

Daylight photography is pretty awesome on the phone which helps you to capture pictures, zoom into them without losing any single detail with the optical zoom. In low-light, the pictures come out with accurate details and a little post-processing can make the pictures look amazing. 

    Considering Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 vs Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max front cameras, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 comes with a dual selfie camera setup with 10MP primary and 4MP under-display selfie camera. On the other hand, iPhone 12 Pro Max comes with a single 12MP selfie camera.
