Apple IPhone 12 Pro 128GB Review
The 3-Minute iPhone 12 Pro Review
By Rachel Hutson | December 2020
This is Apple’s big “5G is here” update to the iPhone and it has been redesigned to match the growing 5G hype. It has new video capabilities, a new design, new MagSafe charging system, new processor and with of course, 5G.
With a new stainless-steel frame and a squared off design it would be sad to put into a protective case because it’s just so nice to look at. The iPhone 12 pro is also covered in what Apple calls “ceramic shield”, which is a hybrid of ceramic and glass which makes the iPhone 12 Pro 4x more resistant to drop damage than the iPhone 11s.
On the back it’s the same glass as last year but the design of the phone also helps with drop performance. The iPhone also uses LiDAR technology, which NASA is using for their next Mars Landing.
The LiDAR scanner is used to measure how long it takes light to reflect back from objects so it can create a depth map of whatever space you’re in and because it’s so fast and accurate, AR apps can now transform a room into a realistic rainforest or show you how a new outfit will fit.
We think that the only real technical difference between the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the display size and resolution, otherwise technically they’re both very similar.
Both of them pack a huge punch with the new A14 Bionic chip which is up to 50% faster than any other smartphone chip, it has 11.8 billion transistors, an 80% faster 16-core neural engine, 70% faster machine learning accelerators and it’s the first 5nm chip in the industry which is far ahead of most smartphones.
Features & Design: 4/5 | Performance: 4/5 | Value: 3/5 | Battery Life: 3/5
The Apple iPhone 12 pro has a very interesting feature called Smart Data Mode, which controls background data so whether you’re listening to music, streaming videos or if you aren’t doing anything on the Smartphone, it will regulate between 4G and 5G in an attempt to save data. These modes are fully adjustable to user preference. Apple has also introduced its MagSafe charging system, which includes a magnet that almost always perfectly aligns itself to the rear of the smartphone, improving charge speed and there are many magnetic attachments that can be fitted to the smartphone such as wallets, powerbanks and cases.
Unfortunately, the iPhone 12 Pro only has a 60 Hz refresh rate, which means it is falling behind almost every Android phone and their own IPad Pro. With the small 2815mAh battery it keeps up surprisingly well, but as time goes on, batteries do tend to lose their charge. You will also need to keep your pockets clear of any metal shavings or keys as it gets stuck to the rear MagSafe Charging system’s magnets.
Is it for you?
Overall, the iPhone 12 Pro covers all the bases of the average user and it is very user friendly, it has unique performance capabilities for gaming and even photography.
What we like
The powerful A14 Bionic chip is very unique and the MagSafe Charging system has proven to be a good alternative to charging the iPhone with a wire, it is also very sturdy and fits perfectly, eliminating the frustration of having the wire in your way when you are gaming in landscape mode or viewing videos.
What we don’t like
The iPhone 12 Pro is very expensive, and it has a very low frame-rate of 60 Hz compared to other Android devices which have 120 Hz capabilities.
Should you buy it?
If you like value for your money, then the iPhone 12 Pro is definitely a winner for superior design quality and strength.
