Apple Proves it Again…

Released in Oct 2020 Apple iPhone 12 challenged the Pandemic with Blockbuster Revenues.

Apple Designed its Success, going untraditionally and Trying new Ideas with Technologies.

As we all know, it has been 2 years that people didn’t get any of the fancy phones and life is going like every other day there is a new phone and not everyone gets surprised by the release of the phone. But the big companies like Apple and Samsung don’t get affected by the pandemic and don’t stop their production and Apple released the new Apple iPhone 12 whereas, on the other hand, Samsung realized the s21 series and OnePlus realized the 9 version series in the market.

The latest Apple iPhone 12 was released last year October only. And as we all know that it was surprising for the audience to make trust in the new iPhone as after a very long time, they have seen such a new model with the update in almost every feature and with the 5G connectivity, that makes it a unique product in the market.

The iPhone 12 comes with an OLED screen, a couple of cameras, and speedy hardware, Along with this, the main feature is that attracts most of the audience is that 1080p OLED screen, which is better than the iPhone 11’s 720p LCD.

Most of the sources also knew this time that Apple will bring something new to the market as from the past 3 generations the company was not launching any of the big changes with the new iPhone.

Moreover, most Apple lovers are also praising the company as the company didn’t launch the phone with the name the iPhone 12 5G, and launched it with the name iPhone 12 like always. And on the other hand, most of the companies are making their phone different in the market under the same name.

Despite the pandemic Covid-19, the iPhone 12 series received a very warm welcome in the market. Moreover, when the phone was out in the market, then it went out of stock for some time, as after the launch it attracted almost every person and even the middle man somehow managed to buy the new iPhone 12, because of its features, design, camera, chipset, and other specs.

 

But when there are so many advantages, some of the dissatisfaction includes that the mobile phone’s box doesn’t contain the charger and earphones. So, now here comes the iPhone 12 long review and about every spec that the new buyer should know before buying the phone.

First comes the Pros And Cons Of The Apple iPhone 12

Pros:-

1. The mobile phone has a 1080 p OLED screen

2. Then comes the camera set up of the mobile phone which is commendable.

3. The next plus point is the Battery life of the phone which is better than the older versions of the iPhone.

4. The next comes that the mobile phone has a MagSafe charger addition to the mobile phone like always.

5. The mobile phone allows 5G connectivity.

Cons:-

1. The mobile phone costs more than iPhone 11.

2. There is no USB-C port like the MacBook

3. There is no Telephoto camera.

4. There are no earphones in the box nor the charging adapter.

Design

Now here comes the major point for which Apple is being appreciated the most, that the new iPhone 12 is made up of the mixed shells of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 and with the modern twist in between. Moreover, the fans finally got the iPhone SE with the bezel-less screen and the updated hardware in the form of the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 mini can be said an updated version of the iPhone 8.

Moreover, the sources that were expecting that the company would launch not one, nor 2, nor 3 but 4 series phone together in the market were right but didn’t expect that after the analysis by the company of the iPhone SE 2020 sales that were not so good, the company decided to launch the new iPhone SE after few months only in the year 2021.

The first thing is that the iPhone 12 is lightweight and comfortable in hands, that is the reason most people found it to be secure on the hands. As we all know that due to the curves in the iPhone X, XS, and iPhone 11 Pro, made the phone difficult to pick from a desk when kept somewhere, so a user might need to have a protective case at back to pick the phone from the desk.

On the other hand, the new iPhone 12 has a flat frame, that allows it to easily be handled by a person and a person can easily handle it and can pick it up from a table or desk without the use of the protective layer.

Moreover, while the shoot also the phone is comfortable in the hands of the user. Moreover, after using both the IPhones the pro version, and the pro max version, the use of the flat frame is only beneficial in the iPhone 12 and the mini version.

Both the Pro versions have glossy stainless-steel frames, which allows the user to use them perfectly, but where the grip is concerned, both mobile phones lie at that point. Along with this, the pro versions are also absurdly slippery, that is why they can be slipped anytime from the user’s hand if the protective case is not there and both of them are difficult to be handled when the thing comes to pick up the same form a table or a desk.

At the grip point then, there is the iPhone 12 that is got the best grip out of the 4 phones launched together, and on the other hand, the iPhone 12 pro max is the most slippery phone that can be proved to be a nightmare to most of the users. The second feature that a user would notice will be the new bright and colorful OLED panel. Along with this, if the user is upgrading the phone iPhone 11 or XS then the picture quality is the main feature in which the user will find the main difference.

The screen has not been notch this time also and is the same as the earlier versions. And most of the sources and the rumors confirmed that the new iPhone 12 will come with a size reduction, but nothing like that happened and now the thing is expected to come with the iPhone 13 model. And from the year 2017, the users are expecting the same thing that, might this year Apple reduce the price of the iPhone.

Moreover, the iPhone also offers a nice beauty at the back panel, as it comes with a decent look that people like the most, with just only 2 cameras and a logo at the back and is also lightweight and it doesn’t come like the rivals phone design and thickness just like the S21 series that offers around 4 to 5 cameras at the back with a lot of thickness to the mobile phone.

There are around 4 colors in which the iPhone 12 is being offered and are black, blue, green, red, and white. Along with this the iPhone 12 also offers Ceramic Shield glass, the impressive IP68 rating for up to 6m water endurance, a sharp OLED screen, stereo speakers, MagSafe support, and a Face ID. And with the processor as an Apple A14 chip with 5G and Ultra-Wide-Band connectivity.

Display

The first thing comes the update to the 6.1″ OLED screen which is the best part of the new iPhone that was not there in the previous model. And this time the screen contains the Super Retina XDR panel with an extended 1080p resolution but still with a 60Hz refresh rate. the rumors suggested that the new iPhone12 will comes up with the HRR screens but we think now that the new HRR screens will come up with the iPhone 13 series.

The density of the screen is around 460ppi density and is as bright as 640nits. So, the mobile phone can be bright when the user needs it the most and can be dark as comfortable when a user is in a dark room. Till now the phone proves to be best for gaming and for watching shows or movies. Moreover, the use of the same on a bed or in a bus seems to be best and comfortable and the screening of the phone is better than that of the mini version.

The screen of the phone also supports the use of the HDR10. Along with this the auto-brightness feature also works very well on this phone. And if the dark mode is on the lowest brightness mode then the screen will look in oddly greenish color to the user while using at that time.

There comes the notch that is the big one. And the thing eats a sizable chunk of the screen and the point is new ignored because the same thing is there from the generations that the users need to adapt to it. But the thing is getting smaller generation by generation and is expected to be removed after some time.

There is no option for color calibration in the new iPhone and the user needs to use the same default color on the screen. The users find this feature to be annoying as they prefer eye-popping hues, and the thing is not possible in the iPhones. The screen comes with a 60Hz screen rate.

Battery, Software, And Performance

As we all know that iPhones always remain at the backfoot when we talk something about battery life. But this time, the thing is different as the test results state that a user can keep in use an iPhone 12 for about 36-38 hrs and the battery remained to be 20% remaining after the use of the iPhone.

The battery life this time has fulfilled the expectation of most of the users and they are happy to use the iPhone this time.

Most of the users expected this time that there will be a reduction in the cost of the phone as the company removed the charger but also when launched made a woofer to the users that they can buy the iPhone with the magnet charger at low cost but the deal has ended now and now a new user needs to buy the iPhone 12 separately and the charger separately, that will cost a user a big amount that was expected not to be.

With the wired charger, the iPhone gets a 60% charge in just 30 mins and the users are happy with it. And on the other hand, the MagSafe charger charges the new iPhone to 100% in nearly 3 hours.

The speakers of the new mobile phone are actually quite good and the sound quality is good than the previous models and the users are expecting that to be the best in time to be used by one. As most people are now adapted to the use of the Airpods, so a company to attracts customers to the sound of an iPhone now came up with the new sound effects that are there in the iPhone 12 series.

Apple iOS14 has already launched long-awaited changes to the home screen and finally bought the widgets and even a new app drawer. And with all this iOS 14 also aims to reduce app clutter and enhance usability. Along with all this iOS 14 also comes up with the changes like the user can change the default browser, and email client enhanced privacy features, and refined interface with apps.

The one thing that cannot be changed is the iOS file restriction. Moreover, Apple’s iOS always implies different types of logic to the apps which are completely different from Android. And because of that, only a user needs iTunes to manage files from their PC.

So, first, let’s start with the widgets that the mobile phone provides, and the topmost widget’s rotation is not so good and shows the user opposite of the thing that the user wants to display and the thing seems to be fine but not so good. The users seemed to be happy time because the app brands released the widget interface just with the release of the new iOS 14 in the market and the app widgets-rich interface was rather consistent.

One thing on which Apple relies the most is that it makes its users go deep inside the ecosystem and even if the user doesn’t want to go deep down then also the user somehow went to the same thing. And with this Apple Music is also a nice service that Apple provides. The app is well integrated with iOS and Siri, and we eventually ditched Spotify.

Moreover, Apple TV is free for most of the users and they like the shows on it like Defending Jacob, Tiny World, The Morning Show, Mythic Quest, and For All Mankind. And one of the things that most of the users have problems with an iPhone is the iOS file restrictions and in iPhone 12 also most of the people are suffering the same.

Most of the apps act like separate partitions and become unreachable to the other mobile phones. If a user wants to save a PDF, then the user might go to the Adobe PDR reader, it wants to save a photo, then to the photo, and if wants to save a document then to the word or the pages. And if wants to save the video, then in the video player.

Moreover, this time in the test result we have used almost all the apps together and the is no such thing that a person can claim that at some point of time the iOS doesn’t work and the thing is true, this time iOS 14 is working exceptionally good and users are happy with the use of it and are also waiting for the launch of the iOS 15 in the future.

Camera

Firstly, the ZXR offered 2 cameras that were capable of the portrait mode, and then the iPhone 11 offered the camera for more zooming but now the cameras in iPhone 12 also include night mode photography and even the selfie camera supports the same.

The result of the camera worker very well in the broad daylight, but we all know that Apple offers a mixed-bag and destroys foliage and the normal camera works well in the night mode but the ultrawide angel doesn’t give the satisfying image in the might mode. Along with this Apple has also adopted new things to the camera that include the Dolby Vision videos and Night Mode for all the 3 or 2 cameras including the selfie camera also.

The deep fusion feature works with the support of the Smart HDR and helps to focus on a single object and the result out is very good. The iPhone 12 covers the image with dynamic range, impressive contrast, accurate white balance, and superb contrast.

Moreover, if the user is looking for galaxy-like images, then the user might go for the option of the other phone and if the user is looking for realistic images in the future then the user might go for the purchase of the iPhone 12.

The iPhone 12 lacks a tell camera but manages to satisfy the user with the 2 cameras it provides to the user. And almost everything is proved to be perfect right from the separation and blur to detail, colors, and contrast.

With this, there is no change in the camera app also and users are expecting some of the changes over the years. But somehow, there might be some of the deep down changes in the app that got changed and the users are not in use if they regularly. And with this, the app is in the hope of a complete overhaul, both visually, functionally, and even logically and the users are expecting that Apple brings it to the app in the future years.

Verdict

As we all know that no phone is good and every phone at some point has some limitations that make the user not buy the phone or annoys the user at the time of using the phone. And the same type of thing accrued in our test result and at first the iPhone 12 looks exceptionally strong and the user found it easy to log in into the cloud for the backups and the thing is done. At moreover, at use, there were no such errors and issues on the part of the compatibility.

The iOS worked especially well than the android as it gave users the option of changing the home screen apps according to the user’s wish. With this, the Apple ecosystem also remained well-equipped and on the other hand, the user finds the Android to be full of issues and problems and for that, the user needs to do something or the other to fix the bugs.

Now the first thing for which a person buys an iPhone is the hassle-free transition and operation. the next thing is that iPhone 12 comes with an excellent OLED screen and stereo speaker system wrapped into an elegant and lightweight body of premium build. And some of the analyses and the reports also state that at this time iPhone 12 is proved to be the fastest phone and with a decent battery life that it offers.

At last, The iPhone 12 strikes the perfect balance between size, features, and price for a user. And I personally suggest that iPhone 12 is a good phone if the phone is within the user’s budget. And that’s all was the article about the Apple iPhone 12 long-term review.
