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.

  • 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 :/

  • 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'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.

  • 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.

  • 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!!

      MintChipMintChip7 ימים לפני
    • @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)

    • I agree it’s a design/iconic element for them, just thought it would have been gone by now lol!

      Corey LadymonCorey Ladymon24 ימים לפני
    • 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.

  • 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 GluttonThe Cake Glutton29 ימים לפני
    • @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

  • 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.
