The iPhone 12 comes with different versions based on their storage bases and contracts with the phone carriers. Here are the pricing details that you could check on the market:

Unlock Device with 64 of Storage starts from $829. if you purchase the device through the specific carriers (Verizon, T-Mobile, or AT&T), it will start from $799 with the same model.

Track the deals in your location to get the best price for this buddy. Keep in mind that the unit does not come with headsets and chargers so you will need to prepare the charger by yourself.

The Design

There are some light revisions in the model of the iPhone 12. but no matter how small the change made by the designer, you will quickly notice it. It indeed has the new appeal that you won’t find in its predecessors.

The flat edges are the game-changer. The ceramic shield material fortifies the gadget to the next level. You could take a look at the torture test video posted by an expert on YouTube. You will quickly vouch for the new design.
You will notice that iPhone 12 has thinner bezels compared to XR and 11. it is also available in various colors including black, white, blue, mint green, and red.

The Water resistance

This unit comes with IP68 water resistance. So, you can drown your phone up to 20 feet for 30 minutes, no more. It is the top-notch capability that you’d want to expect from a flagship phone.

MagSafe

The ring of magnets positioned on the back of the iPhone 12 has gotten rid of the necessity to purchase other accessories for safety.

The MagSafe itself also provides great spots to add such relevant accessories from the hard cases, soft cases, attachments, wireless charging, and so on.

The 15W MagSafe charger took an hour to charge in full. It is a bit slower than the 20W charger from Apple itself. But we don’t see it as a huge issue here. After all, you won’t see such convenience in other smartphone models.

Display

The iPhone 12 Pro comes with a 6.1 inch Super Retina XDR OLED display. In a maximum setting, you can get 2532x 1170 resolution, big enough to enjoy your Netflix series in HD. The HDR10 rated video recording capability makes sure you will get the best videos with a single tap of a finger.

The fresh rate is 60Hz. I know what you’re thinking. It is still lower than the other flagships in the same price ranges. But the 569 nits screen will give you the colors you need.

Cameras

I am convinced of its dual-lens rear shooters. These come with wide and ultra-wide optics with such great sensors. With ultra-wide optics, you can make an independent movie with just a single device.

There are the Deep Fusion and Smart HDR, the features that improve the details of your shoots although you are using your phone in the most difficult conditions.

The Night Mode allows you to translate better performances for your night scenes. Going to a camp without enough lighting? Don’t worry. Use your night mode and the result will be awesome.

Video

The quality of your video will be maxed out with the 4K HDR video recording capability.

The models can record the Dolby Vision video with 30 FPS quality. For those who haven’t known, Dolby Vision quality is above the HDR10 format. It has a much better visual quality than the siblings.

Becoming the first in line with Dolby Vision certification, you can make great chunks of cinematic experiences without having to get a thousand dollars camera.

5G

5G Network is indeed the foremost by far. And you will get it when unboxing your iPhone 12 at home. It will provide you such seamless connectivity that will support your activities out there.

but embracing the 5G comes with the takeaway. It might demand your device’s battery higher than using the 4G. it is cool to switch to 4G if you want to save your battery.

Performance

The A14 Bionic processor is ready to help you to do any task through your beloved handset. This processor is already faster than the top-tier Snapdragon 865. so, literally, you have beaten all of the competitors in performance out there.

The Geekbench 5 test provided such great results. It only took 25 seconds to encode 4K video to 1080p using the Premiere Rush app. The Galaxy S21 Ultra took 1 minute and 5 seconds to encode the same exact video.

Battery

For multimedia, it comes with a top-notch guarantee. The iPhone 12 can play 17 hours of video playback and 65 hours of audio before the battery gets drained. It lasted a half-day on 4G connectivity. Meanwhile, it will only take 8 hours with 5G connectivity.

PROS and CONS

It is imperative to conclude the overall pros and cons of the iPhone 12 to give you an overview of the device that you are about to buy or not.
Without further ado, here are the pros and cons of the device that we can find out.

Positive Points

• The MagSafe design really changes the game;

• Seamless 5G connectivity;

• Dual cameras with high resolutions and great results;

• Speedy performance;

• Long battery life – great for avid outdoor lovers;

Negative Points

• The 64 GB Base storage might not be enough for most modern users;

• It only comes with a single slab of the device – no charger, no headsets Verdict;

The iPhone 12 strikes the market with such unbeatable features. It has a great and sleek design, seamless 5G connectivity, high-resolution cameras, as well as reliable multi-tasking performance.

Our only complaint is the lack of a charger in the box which requires the users to spend additional dollars from their pocket to get this smart buddy.
