The iPhone 12 is more angular than its predecessor and finally features 5G and an OLDED display. It is a lot lighter and slimmer than last year's model. Find out whether Apple has once again landed a big hit in our review.

Having recently looked at one of the previous models in the range 23-9-20, I now get my chance to test the latest version from Apple. Out of the box it seems to me to be rather chunky compared to other phones, this of course may help it to survive the odd drop, while the corners are shaved off the sides are a perfect sandwich shape. This is not the Max or the Mini it’s the iPhone 12.

Should you still buy an iPhone 12 now or wait for the iPhone 13?
Source: CNet English
As the saying goes, money talks. If you can find a significant deal on the iPhone 12, it may be enough to ease your indecision. Perhaps you're planning to switch carriers. If so, the wireless provider you'd like to move to may offer trade-in specials. It could offset a lot of the cost of a new phone. Also consider holding out until the iPhone 13 is announced. Then, prices for the iPhone 12 will certainly plummet. Depending on what the iPhone 13 turns out to be, getting a heavily discounted iPhone 12 may be a better option.

iPhone 12 might be good enough. How to know if you really need the Pro or Pro Max model
Source: CNet English
The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are among the highest-rated phones CNET has ever reviewed. With features including 5G, a super-fast and powerful processor and fantastic rear cameras, the iPhone 12 line will likely be a top choice for anyone in need of a phone. But Apple released four iPhone 12 variants, including the iPhone 12 Pro Max and a whole new model called the iPhone 12 Mini. The company is splitting these devices into two distinct categories: the regular iPhone 12 line and the Pro models, aimed at people who love photography and have more money to spend. (One difference between the two? Only the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini come in Apple's new purple hue.)

I’m of two minds about the iPhone 12. There’s no question this is a great phone overall, and many of the changes Apple has made to its most popular iPhone are for the better. The new Super Retina XDR panel is a phenomenal improvement over the disappointing LCD panels in previous models at this price, even if it lacks a high refresh rate. And the fresh new design, MagSafe system and excellent dual-camera system all earn the iPhone 12 high marks.

80% Apple iPhone 12 review: The best iPhone for most people
Source: Expert Reviews English
The iPhone 12 is more than just a collection of benchmark numbers, however – more than the sum of its parts. It represents the accumulation of 13 years of development and it definitely shows. This is a very, very good phone. It may not be the pinnacle of what Apple offers – but it is better than the iPhone 11 and hits the sweet spot of size to features to value for iPhone fans. I expect it will be the most popular phone Apple sells this year and into next. However, for smartphone agnostics looking for the best all-rounder, there are many more alternatives. None have the incredible video capture quality of the iPhone 12 and its siblings, but our favourite mid-range Android phones – the Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5 and OnePlus 8T – can compete on stills photography, features and design and come in at prices that undercut the iPhone 12 significantly.

Purple iPhone 12 hands-on: Wait for the iPhone 13, or buy a new phone now?
Source: CNet English
Apple released a new color for the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini, and it's purple. It goes on sale Friday, but I got my hands on an iPhone 12 with 256GB of storage in purple. And I can indeed confirm, it's purple. But the timing of the new color is six months after Apple launched the iPhone 12 series and about six months away from the rumored iPhone 13. So should you buy one or wait? I promise to explain.

It’s easy to dismiss the iPhone 12 as just 'more of the same', especially when you consider the new and compact iPhone 12 mini is also an option. However, 5G networks are rapidly rolling out across the globe, and the MagSafe addition could prove groundbreaking – these things, combined with an improved design and screen, mean the iPhone 12 will become more useful the longer you own it. It’s more expensive than last year’s iPhone 11, and it doesn’t come with a charger in the box; yes, there are environmental benefits to this, but you may need to factor buying a new charger into the cost of your new iPhone on top of the higher price.

As a long-time iPhone user, this reviewer, for the first time, doesn't feel he overpaid for features he won't use - be it the LiDAR, a zoom camera, or a large screen. The iPhone 12 strikes the perfect balance between size, features and price, and that's why we like it so much.

There is one big difference with the iPhone 12 generation, though. It's the first time there are four new iPhones at once: the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. If you want to go small and reap the benefits of a lower price there's the Mini. If you want the biggest iPhone with the newest in iPhone cameras, get the Pro Max. But that leaves the 12 and 12 Pro which are similar (like basically-the-same-phone similar). That's not necessarily a bad thing.

Source: It Pro English
There's a lot to like here, but the iPhone 12 is a bit of a mixed bag and for all its best features, there are a few underwhelming elements, such as the poor battery life and that god-awful notch. It's amazing that the world's most iconic smartphone still sports a long bar across the top of its display. It isn't surprising though; Apple does things when it's good and ready, not as we demand it.

86% [Long term Review] iPhone 12: No longer the “lesser” iPhone
Source: Tech PP English
In the recent past, iPhones with numbers but without a suffix (pro/plus) have been considered to be the lesser of the series, and come with compromises. The iPhone 12 breaks this trend by sporting an excellent display, very good cameras, and delivering a no-compromise performance. Yes, it is not super affordable, but it is perhaps the best value-for-money new iPhone out there and better than anything Android has to offer at that price point.

The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are here and mark the beginning of a new generation of iPhone. Support for 5G, a new hardware design and camera improvements are a significant step away from the iPhone X generation of devices. This is nothing new.

The iPhone 12 is another model we can add to a successful line of smartphones from Apple. The addition of that excellent OLED display has elevated picture performance to another level and helps justify the slight price hike over its predecessor. Sound quality is as good as it’s ever been, too. All these positives combined make for a highly tempting and typically Apple package.

iPhone 12 doesn't have a 120Hz display after all: One potential reason why
Source: CNet English
The iPhone 12 is finally available, and we now know everything about the new phone's price, specs and 5G capabilities. Before it was unveiled at an Apple event in October, we saw speculation around whether the iPhone 12 (and the iPhone 12 Pro, Pro Max and Mini models) would have a 120Hz screen refresh rate -- double that of the iPhone 11. But as it turns out, that's not the case: The iPhone 12 variants all have a 60Hz screen refresh rate, matching the iPhone 11 display.

It's arguably a pretty niche feature that'll only appeal to the most dedicated of photographers (of which I count myself a proud member), so as with the telephoto lens, the more casual of shooters among you will likely never give its absence a second thought. There is a chance that Apple could bring the feature to phones beyond the Pro line, but it seems more likely that it'll reserve it as a more elite feature to help justify the upgrade cost.

The iPhone 12 starts at Rs 79,990 (64GB variant) and for most people an expensive buy.

The iPhone 12 delivers solid photo performance and impressive video capabilities, especially for those who can take full advantage of the phone’s Dolby Vision HDR processing. In terms of pure imaging performance, there are a few competitors that offer similar or better output quality, sometimes at lower prices. However, users drawn to other parts of Apple’s value proposition or who are committed to iOS could find the iPhone 12 interesting. If zoom and portrait mode performance aren’t priorities for you, the iPhone 12 gives essentially all the bang of the iPhone 12 Pro for fewer bucks.

The iPhone 12 will set you back PHP 49,990 for the 64GB variant on Apple’s authorized reseller. If you are coming from the iPhone Xs or Xr or an older generation of iPhone, the iPhone 12 is a pretty nice upgrade in all aspects. You’ll get a pretty powerful chipset, a stunning image quality from its new camera system, and a pretty ergonomic new design. However, if you own an iPhone 11, resist skipping to the iPhone 12 quickly. Even though it’s got all those flashy new features and design, I think it’s not worth the upgrade.

But while all this is just fine for iPhone 12, the story gets worse for first time iPhone users. If iPhone 12 is your first-ever iPhone, you will have to pay more to get a charging brick since you just get a Type-C to Lightning cable inside the box, something that seems like a formality at this point. Even worse is those old iPhone users will have to stick with their old charging brick and lightning cable. To use the new cable you would have to buy a type-C adapter. You’re lucky if you already have one.

This year, the iPhone 12 is where Apple's most substantial upgrade budget went to. It loses the "budget-iPhone" image, being upgraded to an OLED display, a fully tricked out camera system and practicaly every feature, hardware and software found on the more expensive iPhone 12 Pro. Our testing reveals that the iPhone 12 manages to once again take the lead in performance, while also delivering one of the best imaging experience. What you lose in comparison to the iPhone 12 Pro is a telephoto lens,the LiDAR sensor and the fact that you get 2GB RAM less. Despite all of that, the iPhone 12 manages be a great performer, being the most value for money iPhone for this year.

Discreetly but surely, Apple improves the audio quality of its iPhone series. While no new earth-shattering audio technology is advertised, nearly every sub-score is higher than the previous generation’s — especially in recording, where the iPhone 12 performed consistently better than its predecessor. Apart from certain audio and user artifacts, the iPhone 12 is a solid performer across all our tested attributes and use cases, with a great timbre performance for both playback and recording, powerful dynamics, immersive and realistic spatial attributes, highly satisfying volume attributes, and natural background renderings.

After 2 weeks with Apple's new iPhone 12, I think I finally have my verdict on how much value it packs and who exactly should be upgrading.

It’s easy to dismiss the iPhone 12 as just 'more of the same', especially when you consider the new and compact iPhone 12 mini is on its way. However, 5G networks are rapidly rolling out across the globe, and the MagSafe addition could prove groundbreaking – these things, combined with an improved design and screen, mean the iPhone 12 will become more useful the longer you own it. However, it’s more expensive than last year’s iPhone 11, and it doesn’t come with a charger in the box; yes, there are environmental benefits to this, but you may need to factor buying a new charger into the cost of your new iPhone on top of the higher price.

85% Apple iPhone 12 review: Best premium smartphone for most people
Source: India Today English
I have no doubt that the iPhone 12 is a excellent phone. It does everything well. Then there is value that longevity brings. The iPhones are supported longer with software updates. Their performance doesn’t dip as alarmingly as an Android phone’s after a year or two. I do wish it had more storage. 64GB feels low in a Rs 79,900 phone. I also wish users wouldn’t have to spend extra on a separate charger. And I hope Apple improves the notification shade and centre in the iOS 15.

iPhone 12 First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
You get the same Apple A14 Bionic SoC that the iPhone 12 Pro has, and also the same 6.1-inch 1170x2532-pixel OLED Super Retina XDR screen (but no 120Hz refresh rate), 12-megapixel front camera, IP68 rating, 17 hour claimed battery life, magnetic MagSafe wireless charging compatibility (though you'll need to buy Apple's own power adapter), and 5G (sub-6GHz) network support.

Considering how close the iPhone 12 comes to the 12 Pro in the key areas (design, speed, camera performance) while costing £200/$170 less, we'd recommend this as the best choice for most iPhone buyers right now.

The iPhone 12 is great, and a worthy upgrade if you’re hanging on to an older model or you simply must have the latest iPhone. It has a great screen, all-day battery and a design that puts pretty much everything else to shame.

The iPhone 12 sports a gorgeous new design, full 5G support, great cameras and even better performance. However, the lack of a charger in box and limited base storage are drawbacks.

In fact, we’d go as far as to say that if you think you can live without the telephoto camera (and most people probably can), you should save yourself the £150-£200 (depending on which configuration you go for) and get the 12 ahead of the Pro. In so many ways it’s exactly the same phone, and is just as 5G-ready, though don’t let that be the reason you upgrade.

If you already own an iPhone XS or an iPhone 11, I won't recommend upgrading to the iPhone 12. However, for iPhone X and older owners, the iPhone 12 is definitely going to be a worthy upgrade. And if you are frustrated with all the Android flagships out there for some reason or another, the iPhone 12 is the one to go for.

My final verdict on the iPhone 12 boils down to two ideas: If you want better low-light camera capabilities, or you're frustrated with your Internet speeds in congested areas, the iPhone 12 is a distinct improvement over previous lower-cost iPhone models.

The iPhone 11 was an absolute slam dunk recommendation for the average user who was willing to spend more than $500 on a smartphone but didn’t want to crest that $1,000 mark. Both the existence of the iPhone 12 mini and a few small setbacks make it less easy to recommend the iPhone 12 this year, so I’m going to say it went from a dunk to a layup.

If you made it this far in my review, you already know that I’m very happy with the iPhone 12. For $799 or $829 (unlocked), there’s no greater value out there, and anyone who’s looking at the $699 Galaxy S20 FE or Google Pixel 5 should give the iPhone 12 a serious look first. And that’s without even talking about how good Face ID or the vast improvements of iOS 14.

The camera is very good, too, but doesn’t push the envelope and doesn’t have any optical zoom. The phone is also £70 more than its predecessor on launch and still only comes with a base storage of 64GB, compared with 128GB for most competitors.

Lisa Gade reviews the iPhone 12—it might not have “Pro” in the name, but it’s every bit a high end Apple phone. This year the non-Pro iPhone gets a 6.1” OLED Super Retina XDR display, an aluminum frame with ceramic glass over the display, 5G, dual rear 12MP cameras with night mode support on both, Face ID, the Apple A14 Bionic CPU with 4GB RAM, and your choice of 64, 128 or 256GB storage. It’s available on most carriers as well as unlocked, and comes in 5 colors. The 5.4” iPhone 12 Mini will arrive in November, for those who like this phone but want it smaller.

92% iPhone 12 review: One of our highest-rated phones of all time
Source: CNet English
The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are here and mark the beginning of a new generation of iPhone. Support for 5G, a new hardware design and camera improvements are a significant step away from the iPhone X generation of devices. This is nothing new. Apple did something similar in 2010 with the iPhone 4 and in 2014 when it released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The iPhone 12 arrives along with the iPhone 12 Pro. Unless you reside in the US, where the two are priced quite closely, pretty much everywhere else, the iPhone 12 will be the smarter choice of the two. It will provide you with the same user experience while still letting you enjoy all of the Series' core features such as the new design, the high-res OLED screen with minimal bezels, the novel Ceramic Shield, the latest Apple A14 chip, the 5G connectivity, MagSafe, and Night Mode on the ultrawide and selfie snappers.

The iPhone 12 strikes all the right notes — great display, great hardware, pretty colors, standard-setting camera, fast Face ID. In fact, it’s kind of hard to recommend to spend the extra $200 for the iPhone 12 Pro. The regular 12 just covers everything you might need, minus the 2x telephoto lens. And that’s it…

And the price difference isn’t small. You’ll pay either 25% or 37.5% more for a Pro than the standard model. Some people think that a more-expensive device is automatically better. To them, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the most expensive version, so it must be the best. Not in this case. It’s just the biggest. The standard iPhone 12 is really the best.

Source: Slashgear English
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are the more sensible half of Apple’s new smartphone range for 2020, and that’s as it should be. Nestling right at the heart of the mobile market, they replace the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro as the go-to choice for savvy shoppers, and this time around the list of differences between the two is even shorter. Somehow that makes deciding between them simultaneously easier and more difficult.

Prices of flagship phones are pretty nuts these days but such is the world we live in. But the way to think about it is that for a device that is such a huge part of our lives, it makes sense to get the best you can afford and then use it for as long as you can. Yup, these are great phones and I think owners will be very happy with their purchases.

Apple’s iPhone 12 is all about the cameras — iPhone 12 review
Source: Yahoo English
Apple wisely chose to upgrade all aspects of the iPhone in addition to the adding 5G as a hedge against any backlash the company may have faced from customers. Now, instead of people wondering why they bought a phone with 5G that’s more or less what they can get out of 4G LTE, customers will get a completely overhauled experience. And one that’s certainly worth picking up if you’ve got an iPhone XS or older.

This year’s iPhone 12 is a huge leap by almost every measure from the iPhone 11. And better still, the gap between the 12 and the Apple’s Pro iPhones has closed dramatically. The iPhone 12’s blend of design, performance and price make it as close to a no-brainer as possible, though people who loved the iPhone 11’s battery life will be a little disappointed. Even so, we have no doubt that for most people, the iPhone 12 is absolutely the right choice.

The main takeaway from my time with the iPhone 12 is that across the board, the average iPhone user likely won't need the features that the iPhone 12 Pro offers, especially now that the smartphone includes a great-looking and vibrant OLED display. On the other hand, if you're a smartphone photography enthusiast, the incremental improvements the iPhone 12 Pro offers could be worth the upgrade.

Apple iPhone 12 review: Closer to a Pro than ever
Source: Engadget English
I've been testing the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro for about a week, and it wasn't long before I stopped thinking about how big a deal these things were or weren’t. No, I couldn't help but dwell on more practical matters, like just how similar these two phones really are. The gap between a "regular" iPhone and a Pro iPhone has grown smaller than ever. That's great news for anyone who doesn't want to spend more for a smartphone than they have to, but it also means deciding between the two is no easy feat.

Model:

One of the highest-rated phones on the market at the moment has to be the Apple iPhone 12. In comparison to its predecessors, there are a lot of new things in the iPhone 12. Firstly, Apple has built in the usual upgrades, like a faster processor and an improved camera. While this is definitely great, it is obviously something that was expected from Apple. In addition to all of that, there is a new design, a new OLED screen, 5G support, and an entirely new charging and accessory ecosystem with MagSafe.

In terms of its design, the Apple iPhone 12 is much smaller and lighter compared to the iPhone 11. The phone also has flat sides and a flat screen. Ever since the iPhone 6, the company has incorporated curved edges in its designs, so the flat sides in this latest iPhone 12 feel absolutely new. Despite all of those flat edges, the seams and the corners are bevelled just enough to make the phone comfortable to hold. Apart from that, it should be noted that the aluminium rails on the iPhone 12 have a matte finish.

The front of the iPhone 12 is a glass-ceramic hybrid which Apple has branded “Ceramic Shield.” They basically put ceramic crystals within the glass itself to improve the drop resistance. Apple has added that this hybrid is four times more resistant to breaking from drops compared to having just the glass. As far as the screen is concerned, Apple has switched over to an OLED screen in this model, which is one of the reasons for its smaller size. Apple has also increased the pixel count in this device to 1170 x 2532, which is definitely a great upgrade. While there are various Android phones at this price point with a refresh rate of 90Hz or 120Hz, the iPhone 12 still manages to hold on to its standard 60Hz refresh rate.

Apart from everything mentioned above, MagSafe is definitely a unique feature of this phone. It is essentially an entire system for attaching things to the back of the iPhone via magnets, which includes wireless chargers, cases, car mounts, wallets and other things like gimbals. In terms of the camera, the most important changes are not in the sensors or the lenses, except for the main wide-angle camera going from an ƒ/1.8 aperture to ƒ/1.6 in order to allow it to be slightly lighter. Instead, the bigger differences lie in the software and the capabilities of the new A14 Bionic processor that runs everything on the phone. It is worth noting that the A14 has unlocked night mode (even portrait) for all of the cameras on the iPhone 12, including the selfie camera. Overall, the iPhone 12 has definitely made an impact in the iPhone family and deserves exploration.
