Apple iPhone 12 Pro review: it has a lot of 5G, LIDAR, MagSafe stuff

APPLE IPHONE 12 PRO REVIEW

  The new iPhone 12 Pro has a lot of things including 5G, LIDAR, and MagSafe

IPhone: The iPhone 12 line has been completely redesigned and features four models - iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max - in a range of screen sizes and price points. Across the board, Apple added new video features, a new MagSafe charging system, a new A14 processor, and all the hype it can collect for 5G

IPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro features and specifications

IPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro both have the same basic design, very similar OLED screens, and the same processors and 5G capabilities. IPhone 12 Pro adds an extra telephoto camera lens, a LIDAR sensor, a little more RAM, double the primary storage, and a shiny stainless steel frame all of which will cost you $ 999, about $ 200 more than the basic iPhone 12 at a company-backed price. Transfer is $ 799

IPHONE 12 PRO specifications and prices

So the real question for the iPhone 12 Pro is whether the small list of additional features justifies a price hike of nearly $ 200 over the standard iPhone 12. And if you're spending a lot more, it might be worth waiting a little longer. Spending another $ 100 on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which will add a bigger screen and a larger main camera sensor combined with an intriguing new sensor stabilization system, could deliver a huge leap in image quality


IPhone 12 Pro Design

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro share the same new basic design, and it's very square and very flat - shockingly flat. Almost every other phone has a curved edge and a clear border between the screen and the frame, but the iPhone 12s looks a lot like a single piece. It reminds me a bit of the iPhone 5, but more importantly, it looks completely different from any other modern phone, in the way Apple has historically distinguished itself in making old designs look instantly out of date

Strangely, the square design makes the iPhone 12 Pro look more substantial than it actually is. It doesn't look like it, but it is thinner than the iPhone 11 Pro

iPhone 12 Pro is glossy, and the brushed stainless-steel frame captures fingerprints instantly. This is a phone that you'll try to keep clean a lot if you don't put it in a box


The front of the phone is covered by what Apple calls "Ceramic Shield", which is a combination of glass and ceramic. Among the new materials - you can't call it "glass" because it's technically not glass - and the new design, Apple claims the iPhone 12 line has four times better performance than previous models, with the same scratch resistance. (I drop my phone a lot, so I'm excited to see how it goes.) On the back, you'll find the same kind of glass as last year, but the new design should improve drop performance as well, Apple says. One thing Apple won't tell me is how resistant this stainless steel frame is to scratches and scrapes ... and we had already placed a small notch in the frame of our review unit, even though all that was really done was to go from shooting video to video shoot

IPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro features and specifications



The iPhone 12 Pro’s OLED display is larger than the iPhone 11 Pro, at 6.1 inches, and the phone is slightly taller as a result. The display is otherwise basically the same as last year in terms of brightness and pixel density, which means it looks excellent, although it’s still a 60Hz refresh rate, which at this point is behind virtually every Android phone at $700 and up


On the sides of the phone, you’ll find four standard antenna gaps, and US models have a millimeter-wave (mmWave) antenna window for ultrawideband (UWB) 5G on Verizon. Apple told us that holding the phone with your hand over this window shouldn’t affect wireless performance and that there’s no particular guidance on how to hold the phone. I have large hands and basically can’t hold the phone without covering the antenna window unless I try, and I didn’t have any issues during my brief UWB tests


The back of the phone features Apple’s new MagSafe magnetic wireless charging and mount system, which feels like the connector equivalent of the summer before college for the first time: the future is bright and exciting, and you get to reinvent your whole situation from scratch. But the days of the Lightning connector are obviously coming to a close, and it’s okay to be sad about it


MagSafe is extremely clever as a concept and exceedingly fine in reality. I am excited about magnetic car mounts and stabilizer gimbals and other accessories that don’t require fiddling to attach. I also think there will be neat uses of the additional alignment magnet just below the charging coil; that’s the one that keeps Apple’s just-okay wallet case attached correctly. Apple seems confident that an actual MagSafe accessory ecosystem will develop, unlike the iPad Smart Connector. There are already third-party chargers and car mounts and things being announced. (Apple claims taking its more standard cases on and off the phone is easier because of the magnets, and I have no idea what they’re talking about. It seems just the same as ever

IPHONE 12 PRO Camera
iPhone 12 Pro has the best camera in a smartphone


The main camera has a slightly brighter lens than last year, which helps it in low light, and Apple's new Smart HDR 3 processing appears to be a bit smarter. Noise reduction has been improved and looks better than iPhone 11: Photos look less grainy, there are more details. Pictures are also a little more contrast. Every year, Apple seems to be more willing to make the highlights stand out and the shadows to be shadows, a look that I personally love

All four cameras on the phone can now turn on night mode, which is very cool, but very useful in the front camera for selfies in night mode. Using tele or ultrawide works for night mode shots, but I'll stick with the main camera. It's the best camera on a phone, and it takes the best photos

There are some other small but noticeable improvements for images compared to the 11 Pro: the ultra-wide lens is slightly distorted at the edges, and photos from the ultra-high-definition and telephoto lens are sharper and more detailed. There are also some new settings: You can actually turn off lens correction, and you can turn off both Smart HDR and Scene Detection, which attempts to intelligently recognize the shot and display it correctly. It's nice to see Apple adopting additional camera options, but overall I let everything slip; If you get offended by the automatic camera modes then you should just use an app with good manual controls like Halide

 
The 12 Pro also has a new LIDAR sensor on the back, which is something we first saw on the iPad Pro. If you dive into augmented reality tricks, you'll love the LIDAR sensor. It makes AR tricks better than ever


Most people will benefit from the LIDAR sensor in the Pro 12 in low-light conditions, as it allows the camera to focus more quickly - up to six times faster, according to Apple - and also to capture night mode photos
