Apple iPhone 12 review: The best iPhone for most people

 

Apple has four new iPhones, but one draws the most people: The iPhone 12. It offers incredible value and calls into question how many people should buy a Pro.

Excellent camera performance ; Fast and consistent software ; Beautiful and colorful hardware ; Good battery life ; 5G connectivity

Light body feels a bit cheap ; MagSafe offers little right now

iPhone 12 Review: The perfect iPhone | Trusted Reviews

 

With the iPhone 12, Apple has brought down many of its ‘Pro' level features from last year's iPhone 11 Pro down to the cheaper model.

Fantastic new design reminiscent of the iPhone 5;Exceptional performance;Very reliable cameras

Screen lacks some of the benefits you’ll find elsewhere;If the notch annoyed you before, it’ll annoy you again

iPhone 12 review

 

The iPhone 12 may not be a gamechanging handset, but it has some big potential.

Colorful OLED display Future-proofed with 5G MagSafe is intriguing

Cameras are similar to last year Battery life only okay Hike in price over iPhone 11

It’s easy to dismiss the iPhone 12 as just 'more of the same', especially when you consider the new and compact iPhone 12 mini is also an option. However, 5G networks are rapidly rolling out across the globe, and the MagSafe addition could prove...

Apple iPhone 12 review: excellent in almost every way

 

The iPhone 12 gets a host of new features and upgrades in an improved design… but it comes at a higher price

Fantastic HDR screen ; High-quality camera system ; Future-proofed with 5G and powerful innards ; New design and build quality ; Small and lighter than iPhone 11

More expensive than iPhone 11 was ; Average battery life ; Only a dual-lens camera ; 60Hz screen ; Face ID-only isn't ideal in masked times

The iPhone 12 is the ideal iPhone for most people, thanks to class-leading screen quality, high-quality cameras and great future-proofing (including 5G). But these features come at slightly high price compared to competitors.

Apple iPhone 12 Review

 

Excellent Night mode camera ; Better 4G (and 5G) than previous iPhones ; Beautiful build ; Solid battery life

Several similar, but not-quite-the-same models ; AT&T and Verizon 5G underwhelms ; Charging and power adapter situation is confusing

The iPhone 12 series brings top-notch design, world-class connectivity, and an improved Night-mode camera to the nation's most popular phone. But with four similar models, which one is best? It's complicated.

Apple iPhone 12 review: raising the bar

 

New screen, new design, new 5G, new MagSafe. That's a lot of new, but is it enough?

Excellent camera ; Elegant design ; Promising MagSafe ecosystem ; Upgraded display

The 5G tax ; Battery is a small regression ; More expensive

Apple has put a lot of new things in the iPhone 12: a new OLED screen, 5G, MagSafe for charging and accessories, and a whole new design. Does all that add up to a must-upgrade? Only if you really need one.

Apple iPhone 12 review: The iPhone for everyone

 

Apple's "regular" iPhone model takes a step-up in a couple of areas.

OLED display ; More powerful processor ; Better camera experience ; Dolby Vision support ; MagSafe ; 5G

No telephoto lens ; Smudges easily ; Colours aren't as playful as previous years ; Price bump over previous year

For that group of people who want a new iPhone, but just can't justify the price of the iPhone 12 Pro range, this is a great choice without having to feel like you are settling for second best.

Apple iPhone 12 and 12 Pro Review – Look beyond 5G

 

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are the more sensible half of Apple's new smartphone range for 2020, and that's as it should be. Nestling right at the heart of the mobile market, they r…

Physical design looks and feels great ; Excellent cameras ; A14 Bionic performance is stellar

5G is nice, but not reason alone to upgrade ; Battery life doesn't match last year ; Still Lightning not USB-C
