Overview of the new iPhone 12
The iPhone 12 is the latest edition of Apple’s iPhone series. There are many people questioning whether the iPhone 12 is really worth it for customers with the price being so high. To begin with, there will always be a slightly smaller target market that Apple has where they will buy whatever is released as soon as it hits the stores, this allows Apple to boost their prices. The question is, however, is it worth the extra money for basically having the same model as the previous iPhone model?
After reviewing the video attached, it can be inferred that the new iPhone provides new features such as the apple A14 bionic, 5G, traditional LCD display, Dolby vision, night mode on the camera types, focus on camera is faster, sharper photographs and a wireless charging system. These features could potentially sway some customers into wanting to buy it as it does seem to be more advanced. However, there is an argument that the iPhone 12 does not possess heavy benefits and quality that exceed previous phones by a large scale.
In depth review on benefits/features
Techradar conducted a very impressive review on the features of the new iPhone 12. They consider from all of the factors on whether the iPhone 12 is really worth it for customers. Here is their view:
“The screen has been significantly upgraded, too, replacing the older LCD with newer OLED technology hitherto reserved for the “Pro” iPhone models. The display is brighter and more colourful, with significantly improved blacks and a higher pixel density making it crisper. It is one of the very best displays you can get on a smartphone, and has a new cover to it that Apple calls “Ceramic Shield”, which it says has four times the drop resistance of previous glass on iPhones. Anything that helps prevent smashed screens is a bonus. It takes 25 minutes to charge the battery to 50% but more than 90 minutes for a full charge using a $19 Apple 20W USB-C charger – no power adapter is included in the box, just a USB-C to Lightning cable. Fully charging using Apple’s new MagSafe wireless charger takes more than three hours connected to the same 20W USB-C charger.”
Now that you have had a bit more of a read on the new iPhone 12, what do you think? Is it worth it for customers and are the benefits and quality of the phone seem to have improved drastically? Are the features good enough to satisfy new and existing customers?
