The situation may change only in a year, when the iPhone 13 appears on the market.
The Neowin website published a review of the flagship smartphone iPhone 12 Pro Max, the author of which cannot recommend it for purchase due to at least one thing – the lack of a fingerprint scanner.
The editor of the edition, Rich Woods, said that the iPhone 12 Pro Max is ideal in almost every way. It has high-speed hardware, a good design, an almost perfect display, and one of the best cameras. Everything would be fine if not for the pandemic.
Now there is a pandemic, and most of us have to wear masks when we go outside. If I open OneNote in a supermarket to view a shopping list, I have to enter my PIN like a barbarian. Seriously, for a company that claims it cares about various issues, launching a smartphone without a fingerprint scanner is very strange. For this reason, I cannot recommend buying it. If this pandemic ends and we return to a world where facial recognition can be limited, I will recommend the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Until that happens, however, this device should remain on the “do not buy” list.Rich Woods
