iPhone 12 review: new standard

1 095 659 Näkymät

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.

  • Thx for this perfect review bro ´ This new I Phone looks absolutely awesome ! But it steals pretty much expansive... I personnaly buy the iPhone XR on BACKMARKET. Very affordable, and it works perfectly . I recommand this web site! I’ve got a non use promotion code for it. If it can help : 1607021448267

  • Apple has removed ‘Capture Outside the Frame’ from iOS 14. Please make a review about this. I have photos with & without the feature. WITH the feature, I was capturing photos up to 17MP with my 12MP camera. Now that’s gone. I’d be happy to provide you with examples if you review this travesty.

  • Hello everyone! If you require the service of a professional hacker to help track your partner's cell phone remotely, contact cyberhackanswers , he helped me hack my wife's phone without physical contact. They do all types of mobile hacks and computer hacks; get unrestricted and unnoticeable access to your partner/spouse/anybody's facebook account, email, whatsapp, text messages. they also make changes in any database/website such as your college/university grades. Getting the job done is as simple as sending a text/whatsapp message to +1 626 578 5544 or send him a dm on instagram to @blonde_hacker_ stating what you want to do. Thank me later ';];.'];'.'];'.']';.'[];.[];.'

  • 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 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!!

      MintChipMintChip17 päivää sitten
    • @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 LadymonCorey LadymonUukausi sitten
    • 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.

    • @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

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.
