Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro is beautiful to look at and hold, but isn’t much different from the less expensive iPhone 12. On top of that, the bigger iPhone 12 Pro Max stands to offer a better camera, which puts the 12 Pro in a tough spot. Nilay Patel has the full review of the iPhone 12 Pro.

  • Look at all the lens flare in the night shots starting at 6:00 minute mark. This is not a problem I had on my Pixel 3XL, or Samsung Galaxy S20. My partners 12 Pro Max has awful lens flare in all pictures taken at night.

  • See the thin little glass circles covering the rear-facing camera lenses? Do this: drop the iPhone 12 Pro on its rear-facing camera array from 3 feet high onto some gravel rocks. Watch in horror as the glass covering the lenses shatters like a soap bubble. Then call Apple to get a repair estimate. It's around $500 to replace the rear-glass / lens cover piece. Nice job Apple!

    • @Cleezty on IG Really? Well, hmmm...after owning (and oc·ca·sion·al·ly dropping) iPhones since iPhone 4 in 2010, my new iPhone 12 Pro camera lens glass did not hold up to a 2 foot drop onto gravel. The drop shattered the glass covering camera 1 and 2.

  • To be completely honest mag safe is useless. It solves a problem that already has a solution, in case you want to use your phone while charging just plug in the wall and turn on the switch. I dont think there are any hardcore wireless charging fanatics out there who would need this, and even if there were they arent really getting the complete wireless charging experience now, are they? Its just a gimmick since apple had no new feature to showcase this year for their brand 'new' iphones.

  • Weird question but just want to know if this is normal. I noticed in a well lit room (noticed under the light), if I move my phone on a certain angle I can see a red light in the front facing camera. Read online it’s the proximity sensor but is it normal to see that red light glare in the light like that?

  • Alert! I'm having an issue with certain many Android users..doesn't matter which carrier..I can not receive messages from them. I have the iphone 12 pro. And this issue is with Everyone with the iphone 12 and possibly other models..but more prevalent to the iphone 12. This hopefully will blow up with Apple face asap!
