Design and Build
The Apple iPhone 12 has an aluminium frame with a glass front and back made of Gorilla Glass. The phone is IP68 certified for water and dust resistance which means it can last up to 6m for 30 mins underwater. Black, White, Red, Green and Blue are the colour options you can choose from. The dimensions are 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4 mm and weigh in at 164g.
The screen is a 6.1″ Retina XDR OLED of 1170 x 2532 px resolution and a pixel density of 460ppi with a typical brightness of 625 nits and 1200 nits at peak brightness. The screen is protected with scratch-resistant ceramic glass and oleophobic coating. Other display features include; HDR10, Dolby Vision support, wide colour gamut and True Tone.
User Interface and Performance
Apple iPhone 12 comes installed with iOS 14.1, upgradable to iOS 14.4. It is just as fast as the previous iOS thanks to the Apple A14 Bionic chip (5nm) – Hexa-core (2×3.1 GHz Firestorm + 4×1.8 GHz Icestorm) Apple CPU. It has a four-core Apple GPU which is good enough for solid gaming.
Storage options for the iPhone 12 are 64GB, 128GB and 256GB which is enough for the average user. There is still no dedicated card slot for storage expansion and at this point, I don’t think Apple will ever add one.
Apple iPhone 12 has a dual rear cameras setup which is both 12MP. A wide f/1.6, 26mm, 1.4µm, dual pixel PDAF, OIS, Dual Pixel AF and an f/2.4, 120˚, 13mm ultrawide, 1/3.6″. the camera also has Dual-LED dual-tone flash and supports HDR for both photo and panorama.
This takes some solid photos with will please the enthusiast. Daylight photoshoots are good and the night mode is quite capable. The photo enthusiasts will definitely enjoy the iPhone 12 shoots.
The selfie camera is not that different from the one that came with the XR with a Dual camera – 23mm 12MP f/2.2 front-facing camera with HDR. It features an SL 3D sensor for depth and biometrics.
The capabilities of the iPhone 12 in terms of video recording are very good with 8K still not supported by any of the 12 series. The rear cameras can take 2160p at 60 and 30fps, 1080p at 30, 60, 120 and 240fps video recording with HDR and Dolby Vision HDR supported up to 30fps.
The selfie camera is capable of 2160p at 23, 60 and 30fps, 1080p at 30, 60, and 120fps video recording with HDR and gyro-EIS support.
Apple iPhone 12 comes with a 2,815 mAh battery equipped with 20W fast charging. It also supports 15W Qi wireless charging using MagSafe which uses magnetic attachments. Battery rating according to Gsmarena’s endurance test sits at 8hr which is better than the higher Pro model.
The iPhone 12 comes with either a Single SIM with eSIM support from the carrier or a physical Dual SIM on 5G and 4G. Supported Wi-Fi tech a/b/g/n/ac/6 with Bluetooth 5.0. The single Lightning port which Apple is surely working on probably getting rid of in the future.
The phone also supports GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS; NFC; Apple U1 chip ultrawideband.
