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 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

Apple iPhone 12 vs Google Pixel 5


Apple's iPhone 12 is supposed to be “the people's iPhone” — packed with all the essential features and all the power of the iPhone 12 Pro, but with a few corners cut, so you don't need to go out and pay $1,000 for it.

Apple iPhone 12 Review


Apple's iPhone 12 is probably the one you should get. Save that $200 and put them towards some cool accessories.

New design is pretty and compact; OLED screen, finally!; MagSafe is cool and has potential; Outstanding performance; One of the best cameras on a smartphone

No charger, no headphones in the box; 64 GB of storage is fine, but feels a bit stingy in current ecosystem; No telephoto lens; No ultra high refresh rate

Apple iPhone 12 review: 5G, improved reception, and iOS 14 widgets challenge Android phones Review | ZDNet


Samsung and OnePlus phones have always excelled at cellular reception, customized widgets, and user customization. With the iPhone 12, Apple now competes in more areas than just a friendly UI for the masses.

Gorgeous flat glass OLED ; Flat matte edges ; Vibrant blue color ; iOS 14 with Android elements ; 5G ; Loud stereo speakers

Volume buttons tough to feel ; Rather expensive

iPhone 12 review


The iPhone 12 sports a gorgeous design, full 5G support, great cameras and even better performance. However, the lack of a charger and limited base storage are drawbacks.

Attractive new design with MagSafe ; Comprehensive 5G coverage ; Impressive dual cameras ; Fastest performance in a phone ; Solid battery life

Only 64GB of base storage ; 60Hz display ; No charger or headphones in box ; Digital zoom could still use work

Indeed, the iPhone 12 is still very much worth buying, and clearly more compelling than its predecessor ever was. Had Apple gone a little further, though, I can’t help feeling it would have been perfect.

iPhone 12 Pro review


The iPhone 12 Pro delivers amazing camera and video quality, 5G and crazy fast performance in a sleeker new design.

. Overall, the iPhone 12 Pro beats every Android phone in its class in terms of performance and camera quality, even if it’s a step behind in battery life.

Apple iPhone 12 review: Awkwardly standard


The iPhone 12 is a great overall device, but it sits a bit awkwardly in Apple's own lineup. Find out why in this iPhone 12 review.

Super-fast performance ; Great display ; Amazing video quality

Awkwardly-placed in the lineup ; No telephoto camera ; Slow to charge ; No power adapter in the box

The iPhone 12 is a great overall device, but it sits awkwardly in Apple's own lineup of handsets. It's not the big one, it's not the little one, and it's not the Pro one. So who is this phone for, exactly?
