Anyone done iPhone 12 Pro Max vs 13 Pro Max comparison themself?

So I got my 13 Pro Max and before I gave my old 12 Pro Max to my father I took 8 scenes in my room comparing indoor lighting and extreme low light conditions using the wide and ultra-wide lens. The result were very disappointing.

iOS 15 allows preserve Night Mode setting so both phones have Night Mode turned to max exposure time. Ultra-wide, 13 wins both scenes with less noise, lower ISO, more detail except 12 have better highlight preservation.

Problem is the main wide lens. 12 have better WB, color accuracy, and shadow detail. 13 just show black what 12 can see color and have weird processing artifacts around letters that 12 doesn't have.

Anyone have 12 Pro Max and 13 Pro Max and can confirm my finding?

My room is a mess so I am not going to upload most of the photos except these 2 taken with only the light from my MacBook during ZOOM class. I'll see if I can meet up with my father tomorrow and take some outdoor night photos

12 Pro Max, f/1.6, 1/43s, ISO 640

13 Pro Max, f/1.5, 1/54s, ISO 500
