Recently Apple has launched its new smartphone iPhone 12 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Apple products are undoubtedly more evolutionary than revolutionary, the iPhone 12 sports a brand-new design, a new screen, is powered by a new processor, and is capable of performing some new party tricks including, for the first time, 5G support.
But it’s also gained a more expensive price tag and lost a couple of things from its box along the way (namely a charger and pair of Earpods). Does the iPhone 12 still deliver that all-around ability, performance and value that made its predecessor, the iPhone 11, such a brilliant buy?
Here is the complete review of Apple iPhone 12.
As you’d expect, given its premium standing, the iPhone 12 isn’t the cheapest smartphone around. It’s actually Rs. 76900 more expensive than the iPhone 11 across all its different storage sizes. The 64GB iPhone 12 is Rs 76900, the 128GB version comes in at Rs 81900, while the top-of-the-range 256GB handset will set you back Rs 94,900.
The new iPhone have the glowy, saturated OLED screens which have become necessary for high-end smartphones in the past few years. They measure 5.4 inches and 2,340 by 1,080 pixels for the iPhone 12 mini; 6.1 inches and 2,532 by 1,170 pixels for the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro; and 6.7 inches and 2,778 by 1,284 pixels for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The displays are all higher resolution, and denser, than their iPhone 11 predecessors; the 12 and 12 Pro are about the same resolution as the 11 Pro was.
Gaming & processor
One of the most notable things about the iPhone 12 is its ability to play console-level games. Anyone who purchases the iPhone 12 series will be granted three months of access to the apple online gaming platform and Google, Apple Arcade. Because mobile players will now be able to play advanced games like Team Sonic Racing, The Pathless, and Dread Nautical, other mobile developers may look into how they can also offer a more advanced game library. iPhone 12 uses Apple’s six-core A14 Bionic processor, which contains a next-generation neural engine that makes everyday use extremely smooth and responsive, but the device does get a bit warm when stressed.
It also contains IP68 water and dust-resistant rating along with dirt and grime and is water-resistant up to six meters (20 feet) for 30 minutes. However, the manufacturer’s warranty does not cover liquid damage to the phone.
iPhone 12 is a dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) mobile in which you can use both Nano-SIM and eSIM cards. The smartphone runs iOS 14 and has an inbuilt storage of 64GB so that you can store all your local files, songs, videos, pictures, docs, and more without any space constraints. In addition to this, the smartphone from Apple houses a non-removable battery that supports both wireless and proprietary fast charging.
Speaking about the camera specifications, the iPhone 12 on the rear features a 12 MP primary camera with f/1.6 aperture and a 12 MP camera with f/2.4 aperture. Also, the rear setup has an auto-focus feature. While on the front, the mobile comes with a 12 MP camera with f/2.2 aperture for clicking some awesome selfies.
We Indians are always anxious about the battery life of phones. Here is the complete knowledge about the battery. The regular iPhone 12 lasted just 8 hours and 25 minutes over AT&T’s 5G network. Because in India there is only 4G network available so you get approx 2 hours extra. Last year’s iPhone 11 lasted a whopping 11 hours and 16 minutes over 4G. To compare, we switched the iPhone 12 to 4G-only, and it endured for 10 hours and 23 minutes.
