🐘 iPhone 12 mini Review: eeworld.info/chat/13-RlmaKp4qYs74/video

Yes, the iPhone 12 Pro is the same price as the iPhone 11 Pro. A bit less, even, when you adjust for storage, especially for storage upgrades.
The regular iPhone 12, though, well that’s $100 to $150 bucks more, depending on your carrier and AC adapter situation. But, for that money, you’re getting an iPhone 12 that’s closer, just far closer than ever to being an iPhone 12 Pro.
Similar redesigns, just different colors and an aluminum band with a gloss back instead of a stainless steel band with a mate back. Very similar OLED display, just not quite as bright when not showing HDR. Identical A14 Bionic chipset, just 4GB of memory instead of 6. Identical LTE and 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, and U1 ultra-broadband. Same App Store and Apple Store support. The only big difference is the additional telephoto camera and LiDAR scanner, and double the extra base storage.
And then, for just $150 more than that, you’re getting the full on iPhone 12 Pro with… all of that.
For me, that makes the Pro worth it. Aide from connecting to the internet, the camera is just the most important feature to me. To quote someone I met in an iPhone line, I can never go back in time to get better photos so I always want the best camera I can have at any time.
If you’re coming from an iPhone 6s or 7 or 8, even a X or XR, everything taken together, from the OLED display to the better cameras and radios, MagSafe, just everything, makes for a really compelling upgrade.
If it’s just too much cash for you, if you weren’t asking for OLED or 5G, Apple just did their Usual price drop on last year’s model as well, and you can now get an iPhone 11 with LCD and LTE starting at $600, which Might just be super compelling in 2020. The iPhone XR from 2018 is now starting at $500 as well, and this year’s new iPhone SE, which is kind of like iPhone 11 guts in an iPhone 8 body, is at $400.
If you have an iPhone XS or 11, especially 11 Pro, and you don’t just have money to burn, and aren’t on an annual update program - or, of course, work in the tech industry - then you’ve got to really, really not just want but need the new camera, especially on the 12 Pro, to even remotely consider it.

  • If you have to even CONSIDER the cost of the charger you can’t afford this phone. Be an adult and get an iPhone SE or nothing at all Bc chances are your current phone does it job fine.

  • Oh and everything above 4K and 12MP is bs. Having 8K and like 40MP does NOT let you punch in better because the pixels are too small which creates more noise and less details because of that. That's why EVERY Android OEM that is advertising their phones with 108, 64 or whatever MP is outputting only 12-16 as they did before. These higher MP numbers are ONLY for marketing and have not a single benefit to it. and 8K is just even worse because it's limited to the main camera on Samsung phones. Use the 2x zoom on the iPhone at 4K video and you have literally the same sharpness but less noise thanks to bigger pixels.

  • Finally, at least someone mentions that Apple - as the only one(!) - habt increased the pricing year over year. Unlike all people on social media still make fun of. Sure the 12 became $100 more expensive but only after last year DROPPING in price and the most premium iPhones as a fact stayed at the same price since the iPhone X. Compared to Samsung who started with $1000 phones in the same year as Apple but they increased it even more and more but for some reason no one blames Samsung for that but people blame Apple for increasing the prices despite that not even happening.

  • My iPhone 12 pro was shipped to me with defected speakers. Apple made me send it back to them before sending me a new one? WTF? What am I supposed to use while the 2 weeks that it will probably take to send me a new phone? Totally unacceptable!! What a horrible experience. I guess Apple doesn’t really care about customer satisfaction. I’m not very happy with this experience.

I checked about 15 iPhone 12 in diffrent stores and every had a warmer/ yellow tint screen compared to the previous iPhone’s. Im asking because i want to know is that a screen defect, previous iphones also had it but now literally every 12 seems to have it

I wasn't determined to only get it in Pacific Blue, so I asked about how long until I could get the Graphite model, and that one will be shipped to me by November 17. So, Graphite it is!
