Xiaomi 12S Ultra vs Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max Camera: Which is better?

The iPhone is the most mainstream phone, making it almost the “default smartphone.” This means anytime a major Android smartphone arrives, it should be compared against the iPhone, even if they don’t appeal to the same market. That’s the case here, as the Xiaomi 12S Ultra has been grabbing a lot of attention for its 1-inch camera sensor with Leica optics, even though the phone is selling only in China now.
