Excellent performance and disappointing battery life
Masable: when you open an app or browse content on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 pro, youll feel faster. Lidar scanners also help ensure that augmented reality applications run more smoothly. The iPhone 11 Pro doesnt seem to last much longer than the iPhone 12 pro. Under normal circumstances, Apples new machine can stand by for a whole day. However, when it is frequently used, about 22% of the electricity will remain after about 7.5 hours.
The camera is great, as always
Wired: video is Apples strong point, it provides smooth and stable visual effect, only Samsung can match it. In the iPhone 12 pro, we are now able to capture HDR video at 4K and 60 frames per second, enhanced with Dolby vision technology. Dolby vision is a software technology that can increase color depth and dynamic range. Users need a screen that supports Dolby vision to experience all the enhanced features.
CNET: the main wide-angle cameras on both phones have faster lenses that allow more light to come in. The new lens, combined with smarthdr3 technology, can produce stunning photos with accurate color, stable dynamic range. Night mode now appears on ultra wide angle and self timer cameras. The pictures taken in night mode are very good. Compared with the iPhone 12, the long focus camera on the iPhone 12 Pro has made great progress in zoom.
5g and lidar are good, but they may not work yet
Masable: please dont buy the new iPhone just to experience 5g. All four of Apples iPhones released this year support sub-6 (slower) and millimeter wave 5g networks, but thats not important at the moment, because neither technology is widely used. It is also important that even if 5g networks are deployed in the users area, they must upgrade the carrier package to use it.
CNET: We tested these phones on T-Mobile and Verizons 5g networks in Greenville, South Carolina. The service coverage of the two operators is impressive, but 5g speed is not always the same. With Speedtest, the download speed of iPhone 12 running T-Mobile network is between 10.4 and 14.9 Mbps, while that of iPhone 12 Pro is between 97.9 and 104 Mbps using Verizon network.
The verge: unless users like ar gimmicks or night portrait mode, the lidar sensor on the iPhone 12 is of little value. When taking pictures in normal light, the camera will focus as usual, and the lidar sensor is not activated at all.
Is it really necessary to upgrade?
Wired: if a user has already bought an iPhone 11 or an iPhone 11 pro, it may not be necessary to upgrade to the iPhone 12. If users want a better camera and have enough disposable income, the iPhone 12 is already a good choice. If users want to change their lives by owning a 5g phone, there is no need to buy the iPhone 12 now.
