iPhone 12 Pro Max vs Samsung S21 Ultra - which should you choose? This is a real clash of the titans, with both being the line-leaders in their respective iOS and Android platforms. These are highly-priced phones with a host of specifications that are likely to reel in anyone who is looking for a smartphone with excellent photographic credentials. 

Both have a multiple-camera setup, both have large displays and both offer other useful features such as 5G connectivity, wireless charging and various capacity options. However, there are also plenty of key differences - such as when it comes to video capabilities, the number of lenses and, of course, the operating system and native camera apps that each device uses.
