The Apple iPhone 12 has a lot of new stuff: a new OLED screen, 5G, MagSafe for charging and accessories, and a whole new design with a ceramic shield screen. Does all that add up to a must-upgrade? Only if you really need one, even though it's great.

iPhone 12 and 12 mini are the best iPhone of the year

I would like to see MagSafe fail. I'm very bitter that Apple refuses to put USB-C on iPhone.

Great review! Picked up the iPhone 12 a few days ago, the iPhone 12 still suffers from camera lens flare/light ghosting/green dots issue when taking pictures and recording video.. haven't seen anyone talk about that :/

I have a question which phone has a better battery life the iPhone 11 or the iPhone 12 ? Cuz I want to make sure I get the iPhone that has a better battery life.
Firey939Drago Před 11 dny
Loved the review. I was in dilemma after watching so many videos which say the same thing but end up with different verdicts. This gave me a clarity about which iPhone 12 to buy. Subbed and keep up the good work

I watched it over again many times because of the video quality ... Amazing!

I've handled and operated a 12 on four separate occasions now and I like how it feels light for its size unlike all the previous ones. But the size is still just too unwieldy and awkward. Thanks but no thanks. Every time it's confirmed why I ordered a 12 mini. I'm not missing anything. I thought my old XS was more screen than I need. I think the small battery life with the 12 mini is overblown.

I can get up to about 400 MBps in Victoria, BC, Canada on the Rogers 5G network with my iPhone 12 Pro. So far my experience with 5G in Canada has been surprisingly good, and even the somewhat rural area I live in gets 5G.

So, I have Sprint at the moment and was considering switching carriers. I heard Verge say in the video AT&T is bad, so what carrier(s) would be a good recommendation?

As ever, for those coming from an iPhone that's three years old, this'll feel like a decent jump. For those coming from one that's over five years old, it'll be a massive jump. For less than three years, it's probs not worth it. Imo this is fine.
Darren Evans
Darren Evans Před 17 dny
Nowhere near the level of phones like find x2 pro or oneplus. They have always been very behind the times. I can't believe it has a notch

I just emailed iPhone: I have NEVER had one complaint for my Mac/Apple devices. I’ve been a loyal customer for 30 plus years. I am RETURNING the FOUR iPhone 12 we just purchased. I CANT believe that you MUST use a MagSafe to charge this phone. What the heck Dudes!!! I own Audi and and Infinity vehicles. All tout the best performance and have wireless charging. Image my FRUSTRATION after a hard day at work and NONE of my wireless chargers work with this phone. It Died!! U didn’t provide one and after$600 for ech of these phones u want me to go buy wireless chargers. Let’s add this up- u guys r smart! 4 phones. 4 vehicles. 4 work spaces. 4 nightstands that I now have to replace alllllllll the wireless charging stations in my home w MagSafe!!!! NO way. We are Returning these!!

I think I want the mini. I’m coming from 7plus. So getting a tiny phone with similar size screen is to enticing. The thing I hate the most is size in hand and on hand usability

Scrolling,"looks better" yes. It also decemates battery life and causes a pain in the arse for the whole time you will own the phone. Stop encouraging apple to sell us devises that have awful batter life and then need to upgrade after a year or two

The notch should be gone at this point! They had 4 years to figure out how to remove or at least make it smaller.

I have the iPhone 12 rn and to me it doesn’t bother me that much but your mileage may vary 🤷‍♂️
Hiếu Béo
Hiếu Béo Před 25 dny
@Corey Ladymon I don’t think the notch will be removed anytime soon, Apple will do it when they have some kind of technogy which is incredibly fast and easy to use (maybe camera under screen or screen finger print, but must be easy to use, not like in Android devices), to replace Face ID as you want (like the way face id replaced touch id in the past)
Corey Ladymon
Corey Ladymon Před 25 dny
I agree it’s a design/iconic element for them, just thought it would have been gone by now lol!
Misael Souza
Misael Souza Před 25 dny
They will never make it smaller, they will remove, or do something else, but they are not going to make it smaller just like every single android out there, the notch is iconic, they will only replace with something that will distinguish the iPhone from the rest of the phones.

Is it worth upgrading from iPhone 6s to iPhone 12? Or wait till 13. Have had 6s since it came out in 2015

Only two design gripes? Have we all just learned to accept camera humps now? Radical idea: Why not make the entire phone as thick as the camera part and fill that volume with more battery?

The Cake Glutton
The Cake Glutton Před 29 dny
What’s the fascination with being able to charge “wirelessly” and use the phone at the same time. How’s that more practical than actual using the cable, which gets less in the way and surely charges faster??
The Cake Glutton
The Cake Glutton Před 26 dny
@Vince but you would probably continuously misalign it, since it’s not as strong as it looks. And just get a longer cable if that’s your user case, like I did since I wanted to use it in bed
T H Před 27 dny
It's a solution in search of a problem
Vince Před 27 dny
MagSafe would be a lot less prone to breaking and twisting. You also would not have to worry about yanking the charger.
The Cake Glutton
The Cake Glutton Před 27 dny
@Alejandro Islas the only convenient use case to me is when you get in the car, tuck it away in the dashboard and get the phone's in-car experience through the car infotaiment screen

Thanks for the great review, YAY!! . But I have a problem with providing us with the cutting edge SMART reviews, when the reviewer is wearing a mask outside in the country of Marin County, I know so well. This is not SMART in any way and a sign of misunderstanding the use of masks, which are 3% effective anyway. A complete misunderstand standing of Science and common sense.
