Apple iPhone 12 Review: Smaller Than iPhone 11 But Powerful

Whenever Apple releases a product, they always make a big innovation and breakthrough that other brands never imagined before. Last year, Apple finally released the new version of its top product, the iPhone 12.

People said that this is the best Smartphone ever released in 2020 based on its design, colors, specification, and price. Now, let’s take a look more at what this new Apple device has for you.

iPhone 12 Simple Yet Beautiful Design

As stated in this review title, iPhone 12 has a smaller size than the previous model, iPhone 11. This new device dimension is 5.78 x 2.82 x 0.29 inches. It is a perfect size that fits with anyone’s hand. This size also makes it easier to carry around inside your pocket or bag. 

It is well-known that Apple rarely makes a change in the iPhone product series. Therefore, if people see the minor change, we can easily see it. And, it could become one of the best things or sensations that comes along with the product released by this brand. How about the iPhone 12?

Apple did some small revisions or changes to its design. It uses the flat-edge style, which makes it look beautiful. This new touch also gives it a luxurious appearance, which is a total improvement compared to the previous model.

In short, the design is one of the best things you can find on this new product. Furthermore, Apple also gives you the MagSafe case. It adds not only beauty but also an extra protection case on iPhone 12.

Improvement in Display Department

People are disappointed with the many disadvantages that they found on the iPhone 11 LCD. It started from its durability, size, and of course, the image quality. Apple realized that and improved the display quality for the iPhone 12. This display can produce up to 2532×1170 pixels resolution, which is one of the best you can find today.

iPhone 12 uses the Super Retina XDR OLED display to create the best possible image resolution you can get from a mobile device. Furthermore, the display specifications have a slightly bigger size than the previous model at 6.1-inches in size.

So, we can conclude the Apple has learned a lot from their mistake on iPhone 11 regarding the display. They did it and give us the best display specification for their mobile device.

Powerful Specifications 

As we all know, Apple always brings nothing but the best, if it is about the component that supports the device’s performance. iPhone 12 is no exception. One of the most attractive changes is the core. This device uses the new CPU unit developed by Apple, which is called A14 Bionic

Even before this device was released, this core has become a topic of discussion among expert and mobile device users. Its ability to process the AI command is much better than its predecessor. It even has a double amount of capability compared to the previous version.

That makes this core become the fastest CPU ever planted on a mobile device. With a powerful core unit like this, we also can expect the best performance from it. 

Storage seems to be the one that brings quite dissatisfaction amongst the users. The base model has 64GB space, which is not that big compared to other Apple devices. It is true. However, Apple also launched the different models in this series that have a bigger storage capacity at 128GB and 256GB. Storage won’t be a problem here.

Apple adds two 12MP main/rear cameras in this device. the front camera also has 12MP, which gives you maximum quality for a selfie. Then, the connectivity feature also has what you need. It supports a 5G network. Plus with the long battery life, you can use it for browsing and using the internet as much as you want.
