The iPhone 12 Pro is a stable phone that is worth your money. But it faces tough rivalry from the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
- The iPhone 12 Pro has the best cameras on a phone right now.
- Powered by the A14 Bionic chipset, the iPhone 12 Pro offers perfect performance.
- The iPhone 12 Pro supports MagSafe charging. Additionally features Dolby Vision HDR recording.
It’s that time that we have the latest and greatest from Apple.
iPhone 12 Pro is a little special in this regard. iPhone 12 Pro parts definitely peek ahead into the future with automation such as the world’s first 5nm chipset, LiDAR sensor, and ability to record videos in Dolby Vision HDR.
The iPhone 12 Pro is available in four variants. Which are somehow similar in size but vary in terms of features. Interestingly the differences between them aren’t much, but each variant cost a few extra dollars.
This review will discuss the iPhone 12 Pro and try to understand if those extra dollars are worth spending.
iPhone 12 Pro: Timeless Design
With the iPhone 12 series, Apple has adored the design language it discarded earlier. In the last few years, the company transitioned towards sleek curves and fluent design language. With the iPhone 12 series, we are back to boxlike frames, flat displays, and equally flat back panels. In a classier way.
All four iPhone 12 launched to follow the same design language. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 are identical because they enfold displays of similar dimensions. There are denoted differences in the use of glass in a frosted finish at the back of the iPhone 12 Pro, instead of glossy glass on the iPhone 12.
This specific design component makes a world of difference. It gives the iPhone 12 Pro a more elegant and classic demand. The iPhone 12 Pro back comes in silver, graphite, gold, and blue.
The iPhone 12 Pro has a shiny steel frame instead of the matte aluminum seen on the iPhone 12. This makes the iPhone 12 Pro expensive, giving it a glossy look. This shiny stainless-steel frame is also the reason why the 12 Pro weighs a few extra grams than other variants.
The iPhone 12 Pro screen is more significant than the 11 Pro: 6.1in, up from 5.8in. Apple has achieved this virtually by shrinking the bezels.
The resolution in the 12 Pro screen replacement is proportionately more significant, which means the pixel density remains almost the same (it’s now 460 pixels per inch).
The 60 Hz refresh rate still remains a disappointment. Apple users were expecting the ProMotion technology seen in the iPad Pros, which allows a 120Hz refresh rate. I see the 60Hz preserve the iPhone 12 Pro battery from the other side. The iPhone 12 pro display misses out on super-smooth animation, scrolling, and hyper-precise touchscreen functions that you see with a 120Hz display.
It’s worth wondering how better this design is resisting damage. There have been many unexpected wear and tear tests with the 12 Pro. The iPhone 12 Pro Screen did not suffer any noticeable damage in most of the tests. But still, it’s glass, use a protective case or apple tempered glass protector which we would definitely recommend.
The iPhone 12 Pro is a tough one to crack. It has IP68 water resistance one of the best seen on any iPhone before.
The display protection quoted earlier is called Ceramic Shield. It uses nano-ceramic crystals in the glass to improve its toughness. The design of the phone and the flat position of the 12 Pro screen bring out four times the drop performance and enhanced scratch resistance.
Let’s sum it up, all iPhone 12 Pro parts come together to create a phone that feels classic and modern.
iPhone 12 Pro camera
The iPhone 12 Pro camera is the best shoot camera solution on a smartphone available right now. There are numerous good cameras in smartphones in the market right now.
iPhone 12 Pro camera features the LiDAR sensor and the triple-lens camera set-up. Which works seamlessly to create good images.
iPhone 12 Pro Battery Life
The iPhone 12 Pro is the slimmest iPhone that Apple has manufactured to date. It is made possible by slightly reducing the size of the iPhone 12 Pro battery. The iPhone 12 Pro battery has shrunk from 3,046 mAh to 2,815 mAh.
This reduction in size does not really affect the user experience, likely because of the A14 Bionic chip and other iPhone 12 Pro Parts. You surely will easily survive through a day on a single charge.
The iPhone 12 Pro supports fast charging through the 20W charger not included in the box, has to be arranged or bought separately and is enough to fill up 50 to 60 percent of the battery in around 30 minutes.
The iPhone 12 Pro Battery supports MagSafe charging. It is an aftermarket solution for the iPhone 12 Pro battery. It comes with magnets lined inside their back covers, encircling a charging coil.
The advantage of using the MagSafe charging is that it is a bit faster than the regular lighting cable. The MagSafe pad can charge the iPhone 12 Pro battery up to 35 percent in 30 minutes, at 15W.
The MagSafe is expensive and everyone will not need or use it. However, you can charge the iPhone 12 pro in your car or use a third-party wireless charger.
iPhone 12 Pro review conclusion
The iPhone 12 Pro is one of those devices that’s almost perfect. From design to performance, it is capable of everything you desire. Additionally, a few extra features thrown in the iPhone 12 Pro improve the experience. But iPhone 12 Pro parts are pricey.
