The new iPhone 12 was launched on 13 October in Pakistan with a price of Rs. 189,000 besides the other two variants of the phone iPhone 12 pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max which are are more costly. Built upon radically modern technology, iPhone 12 is one of the ideal phones for anyone and like other Apple mobiles, it has gained popularity among the users in less than no time. The new iPhone 12 offers more powerful features at an affordable rate which we have covered in our article. So let us have a look at the detailed review of the new iPhone 12.
iPhone 12 specification
Being the successor of the old iPhone 11, iPhone 12 comes with a 6.1 inches display that has a screen resolution of 1170 x 2532 Pixels and scratch-resistant glass for screen protection. The phone has a glass back with the two halves of the device sandwiching an aerospace-grade aluminum enclosure which is available in five colors including blue, green, black, white, and red.
iPhone 12 models also offer IP68 water and dust resistance and can stay in 6 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. The phone is operated by the Hexa-core (2 x 3.1 GHz Firestorm + 4 x 1.8 GHz Icestorm) processor with Apple A14 Bionic (5 nm) chipset. If we talk about the internal storage then iPhone 12 has three different variants of 64/128/256 GB internal storage and 4GB RAM.
Proceeding on to the camera the iPhone 12 has a dual camera of 12mp wide-angle and 12mp ultra-wide camera with dual-tone flash. It has a 2815 mAh nonremovable battery which will give you a stand by time of up to 17 hours. The phone also has a fast-charging feature. Let us move onto the detailed review of the iPhone 12.
The new iPhone 12 has an elegant design which makes the phone appealing for buyers. The best thing about iPhone 12 is its durability factor. The phone has a new ceramic shield material which makes the phone durable. According to the conducted drop tests, the phone did not crack when dropped from the height and the display was not affected even by the fall from 10 feet.
Although the iPhone 12 with 164 grams of weight is slightly heavy and difficult to hold so you can go for iPhone 12 mini. In particular, if we talk about its colors, the iPhone 12 offers five different colors which are quite good. But most of the buyers have preferred green color which they say is brighter and different than other colors offered by the company.
Thanks to the 6.1 inches Super Retina XDR OLED display with a 2532×1170 resolution which increases the clarity of the screen and allows you to enjoy movies on a big screen. Any movie would not look as alluring on any other screen as on the screen of your iPhone 12.
If we consider the brightness of the phone, the iPhone 12 tops out at 569 nits at its highest setting which is low if we compare it with other iPhone mobiles.
You will be able to enjoy the 5G in your new iPhone 12. You will also figure out that the apple 5G is slightly different than the other smartphone’s 5G. The iPhone works on both sub-6GHz 5G and offers much faster internet. However, there is also a drawback to this.
The fastest 5G on your iPhone 12 will demand more battery drainage for which Apple has also built up the Smart Data Mode by which you can switch between your LTE and 5G depending upon your needs and the speed you require for your work.
For example, if you are simply using Spotify for music with your phone’s screen off then you do not need to turn the 5G. But if you are browsing or making a facetime call then it will automatically switch to 5G for faster speed. Therefore Smart Data Mode is optional to use.
Apple’s new A14 Bionic processor delivers first-class performance. The A13 Bionic chipset in the previous iPhone 11 was already the fastest one than the other smartphone’s processors and this new processor has made the performance even better for the users and does not prevent you from multi tasking at all.
Battery life and charging
As we have already mentioned that the latest iPhone 12 comes up with the fast charging feature. You would be able to charge your iPhone 12 from 0% to 57% in just half an hour. At a peak speed of 15 watts, the iPhone 12 will now also charge wirelessly, which is considerably more than the lethargic old 7.5-watt mandate of Apple.
However, like other mobiles, Apple has failed to raise the battery capacity for the iPhone 12 with 200 mAh less battery capacity than iPhone 11 pro.
You wouldn’t think, observing from the outside that a whole lot has changed in the latest iPhone camera department. The rear dual-lens shooters are designed in a similar way as they were last year, and 12-megapixel sensors back up both the large and ultra-wide optics.
The primary camera, in particular, offers a 27% improvement in low-light performance, In combination with developments in Smart HDR and Deep Fusion, this could translate into more detail in even the least desirable conditions. It allows you to capture stunning night scenes and sharper images. In the iPhone 12 and 12 mini, the A14 chip includes a faster and more powerful image signal processor that provides new capabilities for the camera.
There is a built-in magnetic ring on the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro models that are designed to work with a MagSafe charger and other magnetic accessories. The charger is compatible with old iPhones but is designed mainly to work with the latest versions of iPhones.
As waterproof phones are preferred by most of the users, the new iPhone 12 and 12 mini are IP68 water-resistant and can tolerate a depth of up to 6 meters (19.7 feet) for up to 30 minutes. The iPhone 12 models can survive rain, splashes, and unintended spills, but deliberate exposure to water should be prevented because, with standard device use, water and dust resistance can diminish over time.
The iPhone warranty from Apple does not cover liquid damage, and although AppleCare+ does a fee would be expected to be charged for the damage to be repaired.
Now if we talk about some of the drawbacks of buying an iPhone 12, you will not get AirPods and chargers in the box. You will only get the mobile in a slim box with just a standard USB-C to Lightning cable. Moreover in an expected software update, according to Apple, a bug that is causing hearing aid difficulties with iPhone 12 models will be resolved but has not resolved yet.
The users have claimed that they are experiencing sound quality issues with unexpected noise, loud static, interrupted or sporadic audio. Some customers encounter a problem with the display of the device, which experiences blinking, a green or grey glow, or other unwanted variations of brightness. However, Apple has said to resolve the problem.
