LeemHan, 22 Oct 2020Apple should implement bigger battery 4000 mah at least ... Apple is so stingy about size of t... moreMy main observation about Apple hardware is this:
1. Apple will always use the least amount hardware they can get away with. This significantly lessens costs at manugacturing level.
2. Hardware is always set as a hard-limit. Battery for the instance, lower is better but lower capacity means shorter lifespan. Same with RAM. Smaller RAM means users will always buy the next greatest phone with bigger RAM. Shorter lifespan means hard-limit and more smartphone turn-overs.
3. They're crippling cheaper ways of repair from 3rd-parties. The "Genius" bar isn't designed as a repair shop, they're mostly a "replacement" shop or "your device is dead or fix price is high, just buy a new one" shop. Less repairs, more users will buy new phone.
I would call Apple's way of feature additions as staggered or delayed improvements. Even if they knew they could, they're prefer to delay "improvements" for the next iteration to justify the next price increase, they even remove an existing feature just to save a dollar for parts, again in manufacturing level. All comes too well to create profit.
If Apple aims for the best, they'll add 120Hz adaptive display + bigger battery in there together with 5G. For the price they're selling these phones, I won't expect anything less.
Maybe the logo or the branding costs a lot? IDK.
Tom's Guide doesn't mention if it's 5G SA or NSA. NSA is a partial 5G implementation that needs the LTE radio kept on so it's power hungry. 5G SA is rare at the moment.

What phone are you using currently?
If you have used Android for 10 years, you will feel iOS like a downgrade.
not just 5g
it's the smaller battery on all models
higher resolution on iPhone 12 than 11 bigger
iPhone 11 battery was much better because 720p made look more efficient
performance increase looking questionable
definitely androids window to catch up
Loepoes, 22 Oct 2020I can only recommend you to do your own research but not on this site. This site belongs mainl... moreI am 36 years old. I worked as a design engineer for about 10 years. Now I moved in the commercial team.
I like smartphones, tablets, PC/laptops, consoles and I had almost all of them. I am not an expert, but certainly above average when it comes to these devices.
And I am almost sure that other people like me are on this site too. So, do not be so negative about this site.
Of course, young people, teenagers, even younger than that, are on this site too. And maybe a lot of misinformation goes around in here too, based on personal preference or brand loyalty. But, that is about everywhere on the internet nowadays. The best option is to know how to read between the lines. And in the end to try stuff on your own. Then you will have a complete picture of what is best for you.
joe nodden, 21 Oct 2020Y'know, what if I told you that there were phones with 5G that also had 120hz displays. Y... moreHow is that even relevant... I don't care about 5G and it's pretty obvious I'm not looking for an android phone. I know 120Hz display exist. But again, that's so not the point of my comment...

This site belongs mainly to youngsters with too much time on their hands bashing anything without proper foundations.
It's more often than not absurdly childish and won't help you in any way.
Good luck finding your own proper information before making your decision.

You talk about sales? Lol.
All I can offer you is a box of tissues so that you can wipe your tears after the brutal beating that Apple took in the smartphone and PC war, both of which Apple lost.
Apple should implement bigger battery 4000 mah at least ... Apple is so stingy about size of the battery, and brag about better optimization software battery and better A14 cip thn predessor? What a joke Apple? In performance maybe you're the top notch but in battery life? The explanation is like Apple making a super car with high performance and efficient 5.0 liter engine but with 5 liter fuel tank capacity lol....
I am a fan of Tom's Guide, the tech site... but, the chart here from them, doesn't make favor one of these handsets over the other.
joe nodden, 22 Oct 2020I must be hallucinating because I see Androids getting way larger batteries and iPhones only g... moreTurning on 5G has a negative effect on battery life. The person you were responding to wasn't talking about battery size here. Work on reading comprehension.
This is the reason why iPhone 12 doesn't have a high refresh rate display because if it did, the iPhone would have no battery life.
I heard that Iphon12 and Iphone12 pro has same battery capacity(2815mAh).
your report say that there is different battery life(8h30min vs 9h30min)
what makes this differece? plz
I can feel that with iPhone 12s in 4G enabled, the battery life may beat the iPhone 11 and 11 pro by few minutes. No doubt on the 12 pro Max with 4G enabled, it will still beat the 11 pro max.
Yikes I'd I find myself with a 5G capable phone I'm turning that shit off 💀
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2020IP68 6 = dust resistance 8 = water , 1.5m + 30 min You know.. no matter how many times you repeat that BS, the fact remains that you're the misinformed one here.
If the 12 series already have mediocre battery life with 5g imagine the 12 mini that thing is not gonna last you the whole day 😬
Hardware Hypervisor, 22 Oct 2020No surprise there iOS is hugely inefficient and has poor optimization.

I own a S20 FE 5G and iPhone 11 and I can tell the iPhone is still faster and more optimised. Battery life is certainly better in the S20 FE because of the bigger battery, but iPhone 11's battery life is actually pretty good given the size of it. The difference is not 1.5x better actually.
No surprise there iOS is hugely inefficient and has poor optimization.
I always do a real life speed test when the latest iPhone come out, and Android always demolish the latest iPhone whether in speed, display, camera and ease of use. And the result is always consistent every year.
The notion that iOS is structurally better than Android is just as fake as the existence of WMD in Iraq.
Just because many uneducated people believe it, doesn't mean it's true.

It's just a show of bravado and desperation when they upgrade to a new iPhone knowing that they don't have a choice.
