Table of Contents

Recently, Apple has introduced the all-rounder iPhone for every type of user. The iPhone 12 is a new-generation mobile phone, available in 4 models, i.e., iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. 

The entire series is suitable for all types of users. These models work similarly to iPhone 4, 6, and 6 Plus. But this time, Apple has introduced four models at the same time. Every user has a different preference in size, weight, price, camera, and other features. After understanding different perspectives, Apple comes up with four models that will satisfy everyone’s needs. 

 

Today, we will be discussing more iPhone 12 review, in which we cover all the features in different models. The iPhone 12 and mini versions have the same features, excluding the size, and similarly, iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max have the same features. Let us start exploring their specifications and compare two similar models. 

Main Features

  1. Design 

The design of the iPhone 12 is similar to iPhone 5. There are no curved edges, and the screen does not wrap its edges. It looks flat like a slab. It gives a quite classic look to your mobile because it is well-finished. In iPhone Pro, there is a band of stainless steel, which is wrapped at the edges. It gives a bold and stunning look to mobile. 

It is easy to move the display in the up and forward direction. The Super XDR display provides fantastic contrast and resolution. The screens are well-covered with glass and nano-ceramic crystals for extra protection. These models are dust and water-resistant.  

  1. Camera Quality

The 12 and 12 Pro models come with excellent camera quality because their software, hardware, and other process are upgraded. There is no space zoom feature available in these iPhones like in Galaxy S20. It is easy to take a picture and highlight small details in it. If you are fond of photography, then you will love this Apple phone. 

The A14 Bionic chip is added to improve the camera functionality, and the software change can correct the distortion of the lens. The Smart HD3 lens helps you to take amazing pictures with perfect contrast and colors. Many new features have been added in this version, like ultra-wide night mode, smart HDR3, fast processing, deep fusion, and screen recognition. 

  1. Speed

The A13 Bionic chip is installed in new versions to improve the speed of the processor. It enhances the performance and let you do all the tasks quickly. If we compare it with other models, then the iPhone 12 is the fastest one. Now, you might be wondering about the battery. 

The Pro version lasts for at least 15 hours, and the standard 12 one lasts for at least 17 hours. You will get a USB C to lightning cable for high speed. There are no wired earbuds and power adapter in the packing. You can try the MagSafe magnet charger, which can efficiently charge your phone. But you have to buy it separately. 

  1. Size

The size of the iPhone 12 is 6.1 inches, and the mini one is 5.4 inches. The Pro one is 6.1 inches, and the Pro Max is 6.7 inches. These models are different in size and weight. But if you compare it with the old modes, you can get the smallest and the lightest iPhone. You can choose to buy any suitable version according to your needs. The smaller one is also less expensive as compared to the Pro Max version. 

  1. Colors

There is plenty of color option in these four models, i.e., Blue, red, black, green, white, etc. If you compare them, then this feature is quite similar to iPhone 11. All the colors look attractive and pleasant to the eyes. Every person has a different choice of colors, and you can buy any available ones as per your wish. 

  1. Water Resistance

All the models of the iPhone 12 are IP68 water-resistant. It can withstand the water at least 6 meters depth for at least 30 minutes. It is a similar case with iPhone 11, but it can withstand only 4 meters of depth. Therefore, this one holds better submersion. There is less risk of water damage in this phone. 

The models are also dust-resistant and can carry various dust particles with ease. If the mobile is exposed to rain, accidental spills, splashes, etc., it will not affect the device. There is no warranty by Apple regarding the liquid damage. You need to pay to fix such damage. 

  1. 5G Connectivity

The iPhone 12 models are the first smartphones that support 5G networks. These devices are compatible with Sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G types. It supports 5G connectivity for both short and long ranges and connects people living in rural, urban, or suburban areas. Apple has created the customized antennas for enhanced connectivity. The company claims that it does not consume additional battery power while dealing with 5G networks.
