Compared to the 11 it looks like it’s better when 4g is used but worse with 5g enabled. Likelihood is gsmarena had the phone in 5g auto as that is how the phone is set by default

Regular 11 is still using LCD, which is usually less efficient than OLED panel. The 12 loses against the 11 Pro, but when MrWhoseTheBoss tried all phones on Antutu, I was surprised that the 12 had a big performance gap despite all phones become warm and required restart.

From what I have seen from other battery tests (for example, Mrwhosetheboss's battery test on YouTube), the iPhone 12's battery performs better than iPhone 11's when only 4G is enabled.

I typically have 17 hour days and the phone can do it without needing charging throughout the day. If I were to use it a lot during the day I reckon I could kill it but my last phone required a top up every day after about 14 hours so I see this as quite good
[deleted post]But many Chinese phones rely on Qualcomm for their chipsets, does that make them American phones?
We need to convince people, in some way or another, to stop buying iphones.
Next year Harmony OS comes around and I'll be switching to a Mate 40 Pro. Hopefully Harmony might incentivize some iphone users as well. And this needs to continue until Apple wakes up and opens up the platform to everyone, allowing it to communicate with other platforms well and also stop the anti-repair crap they're pulling off for years.
Davy Jones, 29 Oct 2020Well you better buy an xperia 5ii if you want a small phone instead of this half baked fruit phone.u joking , right ?
[deleted post]I also don't buy Chinese phones. Maybe except Huawei and probably Oppo. Just stick to Samsung.
Just some opinions based on GsmA's review (and from other users/reviews)...
Very good phone overall, but definitely not the best phone out there.
It's impressive how Apple makes the phone lightweight while making it one of the most rugged phones on the market, with 6m water depth resistance. Camera is quite good, iOS has come a long way, FaceID is still the market-leader.
What hurts is the battery life of course. The performance is decent. It's the fastest in terms of system performance, but not sustained performance. Watch out for thermal throttling thanks to weak cooling, small build, and thick chassis (avoid iPhone 12 mini for heavy gaming at all costs). I assume sustained performance is only equal to Kirin 9000 and SD865+, so behind (most) SD875 phones. The notch is still huge too.
I will definitely try the iPhone out in the store, but I don't think I'll buy the regular 12 after all. Looking forward to 12 Pro Max.

I'd rather get a Pixel 5 :)
Davy Jones, 29 Oct 2020Well you better buy an xperia 5ii if you want a small phone instead of this half baked fruit phone.With size like a Fold 2?
AnonD-945200, 29 Oct 2020he aint cried , you are the one who crying
you dont even have a better point to argue with h... moreLet your frustration out...iPhones are for the one who can afford not to look at 700-100€
Based on your words and on your nick...you are all in for what you get for your buck
iPhone remains the best overall product into a very big ecosystem like ios-macOS-watchOS
I don't understand what the problem is with chargers. I hope they enforce that NOTHING can be bundled.
Do I RELLY need 10 chargers and 10 earbuds lying around? I do not. Nobody does. Buy them separately if you do.
WHen you make the best overall product....you will sell big for another year
nice words in the end:
”Many Android smartphones will easily solve most of these for you, but if you are after an iPhone, well,... you are after an iPhone”.
I thought about buying the iphone 12 mini, but man coming from a 90hz phone to a 60hz phone will be tough. Plus it makes me how apple goes on about the planet and all that stuff but still uses their own power adapter, amagian all the people switching to apple and finding out that all of their cables are useless.
So it seems magsafe chargers are not very efficient.
