The iPhone 12 Pro is great, but is it great enough? Especially considering Apple's own competition?

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are a little different this year. They have the same screen size, same screen resolution, similar form factor, the same A14 Bionic; frankly, the similarities are so great it's easier to count the differences. And most of them are in software. Night mode Portrait mode photos are cool and the extra RAM could come in handy along with the new LiDAR sensor, but does it *really*? And does 5G iPhone make a difference? Does mmWave even matter? We talk about this and more to help you decide which of the two mainline iPhones are best before the launch of iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro.

  • just got a 12 pro and this clown is saying this, do they really do it for the views lmaoo?

  • thank you for your honesty, I was thinking the 12 pro but now I'd rather go for the 11 pro!

  • I had no idea my mother could stain and scratch and leave fingerprints.

  • Yep I agree with the weight being too much. The stainless steel is unnecessary and doesn’t make sense for a portable object that should be as light as possible. Aluminum is strong enough. I just want the 3 lenses though but I’ll probably get the mini.

  • You have the BEST review Ive seen yet. SO, opinion......Im leaving Android for the first time since the GS5 (2014) for iOS. Looking at the Pro models in 256gb. 11 or 12 for the supposedly stronger glass? All I do on my phone is Call, text, email, browse the web, and watch the occasional movie.

  • Nah, get the pro because 6 gigs of ram future proofs your phone for future updates.

  • I like the Pro models more than the normal iPhone just because of the matte finish on the back. Actually, iPhone 12 series should have been a S series like 12S, 12S plus. For me the best iPhone is iPhone 11 Pro Max with midnight green, that colour was just amazing.

  • totally agree w u friend on every single aspect, finally, I heard what I think since the launch... the 12 PRO actually is a 12 ''PRO'', because it's not worth the name... AT THE LEAST it should have a 90 (or even better, a 120) Hz RR, especially with this new high-performing chip! Very disappointed, I'll go for the mini that actually is just A SUPER NORMAL SIZE phone... Very sad to see Apple trying to make appear 6.1 display as the normality and a 5.4 as a ''mini'' version... Till a few years ago, a 6.1 iPhone would have been 100% considered a PLUS version, and a hypothetic 6.8 (as the PRO MAX now) would have been RIGHTLY called ''PHABLET''... C'mon, I hate this sneaky induction through semantic and words! The honest names for these phones should be: iPhone 12 (instead of ''mini') - iPhone 12 MAX (instead of 12) iPhone 12 PRO MAX (instead of just 'PRO') and for the first time ever, iPhablet (instead of iPhone 12 PRO MAX) very sad... By now displays have too much height, IMO this new trend about the aspect ratio totally sucks! My iPhone7 (with no useless weak but expensive back glass) have a 16:9... AWESOME. This new iPhones are... 19.5:9! (because for the morons at Apple 19 was still too little, rather 19.5!!!) Very no longer proportioned ratio, totally sucks!!!!

  • I know it's not something that most people really care about or think about when buying a phone, but repairs are something you never mention in your reviews. This product (iphone 12/pro) are basically unrepairable without taking the phone to Apple which is dumb as hell. Even if you have a replacement part, they are tied to the logic board so you can't change them out yourself, you have to take it to Apple and pay whatever they want to fix it. It's something you should really be talking about more with the newer iphones but never seem to even mention. Apple should be punished for making the consumer's life harder and taking ownership away from the person who bought the device. This should not be treated like any other iphone release, this is the most locked down iphone yet by a wide margin and it's pathetic to see anyone honestly talk about anything other than the fact that apple is taking the customer's freedom away. It's got a fancy camera, but what if the camera breaks? Can I fix it with a part on amazon? Not anymore. I still have my iphone 5s because I can replace every part on it and it will still work exactly the same way as intended, without any nonsense created by apple. Please mention reparability in your reviews from now on, for all apple products especially.

  • High refresh rate displays are at the moment a bit overrated. Take the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra which has the option to run at 60hz and 120hz. If you run at 60hz you should get a days usage of the battery, which in all fairness is good. But if you use the 120hz option, then you'll get about five and a half hours battery life. You lose more than 50 percent of the battery capacity when using the 120hz option and the Note Ultra packs a 4500mah battery. I have a iPhone 12 Pro Max and a high refresh rate display would KILL the battery which is less than 4000mah. And I'll take battery life over a high refresh rate any day at the moment. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see an iPhone with a high refresh rate display, but at the moment it's a no for me. And regarding to mmWave, I personally prefer the sub-6 because it has better coverage than the mmWave technology.

    • @Chris Graham Yes go ahead and upgrade or if you can wait another 7 months for the iphone 12S Pro Max wait for it. But tbh upgrade to the 12 pro max because battery life and speed is highly noticeable 6 generations later

  • The trade-in value for the next few years will probably be $100 more on the Pro, so the difference is $20. Also, some reviews noticed a big difference in the butteriness of switching from camera apps and gaming apps with the Pro that they attribute to getting 50% more RAM in the Pro. IMHO, the only reason to get the regular non-pro 12 is if you want to shave nearly a 1 ounce weight off the phone or roughly the weight of a AA battery. I also notice that carriers make make device payment credits for the Pro stretch out 30 months whereas they only stretch out 24 months on the 12. You pay the same but can take the benefit of all the credits in 2 years with 12 instead of 2.5 years with Pro.

  • You were actually 100% right. Its just a one day with my phone and - its really anoying. Not comfortable in hands due to heavy wright & that fucking stainless steel is worst. I am now thinking to switch on 12.

  • So don't buy an iphone 12 Pro if you have an iphone 11 pro. Who is upgrading after only 1 year?! Of course it would not be worth it. I upgraded from an iphone 6s and my iphone 12 Pro is a massive leap and worth every penny (so far).

    • @Scott Honestly, I have not been able to use it all that much. Just a few photos and videos here and there in the house but with things the way they are I have not gotten out to take many photos. Huge improvement from my 6s (of course). I like that I can take RAW images (I'm a photographer so that appeals to me). I've heard about the flare but that is fine, and my good lenses for SLRs have flare so I'm used it some degree of it.
