I can’t tell if those cases are just thicker than most or if that person has really small hands. Compared to the 11 pro max, the 12 pro max is less than 3mm taller and less than .5mm wider... there seems to be a common misconception that the 12 pro max is drastically bigger than the 11pro max. Although the screen is bigger, the bezels were reduced. It’s dimensions are also very close to the dimensions of all other Max and Plus models.

Technically only slightly bigger, but I wonder how it will feel in hands with the new flat edge design. Always get a bit amazed and terrified at the same time when I get a hold of my friends 8 Plus.

Hard to compare really as those cases are always so much more bulky than say the apple ones.

With the wide angle lens used to shoot this video it makes the case look a lt bigger than it really is.

I have an XS Max and thought I would upgrade to the 12 Pro Max. So I bought a CASEKOO clear case for the 12 Pro Max off Amazon ahead of time and when it arrived, it seemed huge -- bigger than my XS Max case. Holding the empty case in my hand, it felt very unwieldy. I could not reach my thumb and middle finger around the case like I can with my XS Max. So I returned it and opted to buy the 12 Pro on launch day at the Verizon store. I'm still getting used to the smaller size compared to my XS Max, but overall I like it.

That case does look larger than normal, but I have sitting in front of me two 12PM cases (smartish kung fu & Spigen Ultra Hybrid) and they do not look like that. My thumb can almost touch my fingers when gripping it. Not sure if like the other forum member stated maybe its some small hands or its the wide angle lens playing tricks. The 12PM is nearly the same size as the 6+.

I'm not worried one bit. Previous devices are X/XS Max/11PM. I will upgrading to 12 PM. Already received the same spigen I use on 11PM for the 12PM. Not seeing such a huge difference in size like many making it out to be. Ill be fine. Also square phone will most likely be easy to handle versus round edges.

Ya. Looks like smaller hands. Max is almost exact size of 8 plus and without bezels.

The 12PM is 0.3mm wider than the 11PM, yes only 0.3mm. It is also 2.8mm taller but width is primarily the factor for handling big phones.

Most UAG cases are monstrous, regardless of what device you put in them -- very thick and bulky, but protective as all get out. I've had them before, but they're just too gonzo for me.

Heres a better pic with an actual slim case and not a brick case

Also 10s max vs 12 pro max
