We’ve taken a look at the new iPhone 12 to see what it offers (a lot) and where it falls a bit short compared to rivals. You can click on the box below to see how you can get your hands on the best iPhone 12 deals.

iPhone 12 – Details

iPhone addicts have four iPhone 12 models to choose from: iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

For the purposes of this feature, we’ll focus on the base handset, the iPhone 12. It features a 6.1” Ceramic Shield screen with 2532 x 1170 resolution, a pixel density of 460 pixels per inch, and a Super Retina XDR display. The iPhone 12 comes with 64, 128 or 256GB of internal memory, 4GB of RAM, dual SIM, Bluetooth, NFC, and wireless charging.

The iPhone 12 is thinner and lighter than the iPhone 11. Working within the device is the iOS14 operating system and A14 Bionic processor. Its IP68 rating means that the phone can be submerged in 6 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.

caught on camera

For photography, the iPhone 12 camera system still consists of three lenses, but has undergone substantial upgrades. The main camera has a wider, brighter aperture and a new seven-element lens arrangement. But it’s the phone’s ability to capture 10-bit Dolby Vision video footage, which enables cinema-grade video captured, edited and shared from your handset, that’s truly eye-catching.

Another feature that is new in the iPhone 12 is the MagSafe connector on the back of the handset. MagSafe is a mounting and charging system for all models of the iPhone 12.

As well as offering fast charging, this magnetic connection technology enables you to attach accessories like a charger or case, and you can even tell what’s connected via a special chip. iPhone accessories like MagSafe camera mounts and game controllers are likely to open up a whole new ecosystem.

The iPhone 12 comes in six colors: white, black, blue, green, purple, and red. The red version is technically called (PRODUCT) RED, because the product is Apple’s partnership with the RED brand, which raises funds to fight HIV/AIDS. However, every red iPhone 12 purchased donates cash to combat COVID-19.

Apple’s first 5G phone

Arguably, the newest addition to the latest iPhone is that all handsets in the iPhone 12 range are 5G ready.

5G is the next generation of wireless technology, and it is a game changer. UK mobile networks have been rolling out their 5G networks for the past few years and we are now starting to see more 5G-capable handsets on the market to take advantage of more widespread coverage.

To use 5G on the iPhone 12, you’ll need to have a 5G mobile tariff and be in a 5G-enabled area. Currently, 5G coverage is mainly limited to major towns and cities, although reception varies from region to region. Different networks have different coverage in different locations, so keep that in mind when you’re researching the best iPhone 12 deals.

How to Compare iPhone 12 Deals

There are so many iPhone 12 deals to choose from. Do your homework, as it’s important to find the right tariff for your needs.

Some networks, such as Sky and Tesco Mobile, offer a 36-month contract. O2 (which announced its merger with Virgin Media earlier this year) also offers 36-month device plans combined with flexible airtime tariffs.

You can calculate the total cost of a mobile phone deal by multiplying the monthly cost by the number of months, adding up the upfront fee, and subtracting any cashback amounts. This will give you the total contract cost to compare with other contracts of similar length.

face facts

As fancy as the iPhone 12 is, it lacks certain features. For example, there is no fingerprint recognition option for starters. Balancing this, it has Face ID which is widely considered to be faster and more convenient, but equally secure.

But Face ID doesn’t work well with face masks, so if you’re still taking COVID precautions you might be better off with a phone that recognizes your fingerprint.

Apple has never enabled users to expand iPhone storage with a microSD card on any of its phones and the iPhone 12 is no exception. This means you need to assess in advance how much built-in storage you need, as well as how much you can afford. The 64GB iPhone 12 is the cheapest at £799, the 128GB model costs £849, and the 256GB device is £949.

All iPhone 12 models have a screen refresh rate of 60Hz – half of the 120Hz refresh rate offered by the Samsung Galaxy S20 and OnePlus Nord – and is somewhat disappointing for Apple fans who were hoping for more.

Lastly, there’s no charger in the box but dedicated Apple fans will probably already have one (or several!) at home.
