Apple iPhone 12 Review

Score: 10.29/10

Apple iPhone 12 is a very complete cellphone released last year, which features an extremely powerful 3100 megahertz Hexa-Core processor, an enormous 6.1 inches screen, a 12 MP back-facing camera and a 12 megapixels front side camera. Great! That's it? No, it's just the starting point of a detailed review.

Apple decided to design this cellphone using an extremely fast Hexa-Core processing unit ticking at 3.1 GHz, bundled in the Apple A14 Bionic chip with a great 4 GB of RAM memory. A great aspect of this cellphone is its huge 64 GB internal storage and although it doesn't include an SD card slot, it it is more than enough to store lots of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without worrying about running out of space at all.

The iPhone 12 construction uses Glass and Aluminum . This cellphone is a compact cellphone, taking into account that it presents a 6.1" display and it is only 5.78" long. This device is very slim and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.29". Apple made the iPhone 12 in many different colors, black, blue, green, purple, red and white. The iPhone 12 doesn't feel very lightweight comparing with today standards, weighting 5.78 oz.

This phone is equipped with a incredible 1170 x 2532 6.1" screen, making everything look amazing.

This cellphone includes wi-fi connection (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a modem or router), 5G cutting edge data connection, LTE-A 4G really quick connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a bit slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device has dual sim cards so it can to use 2 different phone numbers.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back side camera and a 12 megapixels front facing camera. It can also shoot 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 fps, and slow-motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 240 frames per second. The camera also features auto-focus and time lapse video.

This cellphone also features plenty of cool features as Biometric facial recognition, Wireless charger compatibility, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Apple iPhone 12 counts with a high capacity 2815 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery that would have been good if this cellphone wasn't so energy consuming. A possible problem to consider is that this device's battery is non-replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to get older, leaving no choice but to buy a new cellphone.

This cellphone is being sold for around $ 829, which is quite a high price for a device this level. If you need a work cellphone, will use it as a social phone, are looking for a gamer phone or you love taking pictures, this phone is definitely a very good choice for you. When you buy the iPhone 12 you will also receive Documentation and USB-C to Lightning Cable.
