If you were a fan of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 series, you’ll love the iPhone 12 series! Apple brought back the flat-edge design with rounded corners. This iPhone 12 feature gives the phone a sleek and futuristic look despite the reuse of the design! Compared to the iPhone 11, Apple reduced the display borders on the iPhone 12 to make more room for the screen. The iPhone 12 series has a ceramic shield front which is said to be the toughest smartphone glass in the market today. The iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 have a glass back and aluminum design. 

On the other hand, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max have a textured matte glass back and stainless steel design. These high-quality materials make the phones have 4x better drop performance! With this in mind, you will no longer have to fear accidentally dropping your phone. But for peace of mind, you can opt to buy an iPhone case for added safety. To make it even grander, the entire iPhone 12 series are water and dust resistant! The iPhone 12 Pro Max, being the top of the line model, has over 3.4 million pixels which makes up the Super Retina XDR Display. It will not leave your eyes wanting more!

Without a doubt in mind, the iPhone 12 Pro camera and LiDar are definitely one of the iPhone 12 features that makes it to the top of the list. The innovations and exceptional technology that Apple poured out into the cameras surpass the benchmark for phone cameras! The wide camera lets in 27% more light which makes it 87% better when taking low-light photos. The cameras also have a 5x optical zoom range, but it doesn’t stop there! Apple takes it to a whole new level with the new optical image stabilizer (OIS) which stabilizes the sensor and not your camera lens. This huge shift makes your shots steady even if you aren’t! But for added stability, you can opt to buy phone stabilizers to make it as smooth as ever. The iPhone 12 series also has Smart HDR3 which automatically adjusts the shadows, highlights, and contours in every photo you take! 

Taking magnificent photos is not the only great thing about the iPhone 12 cameras. Apple takes it a notch higher with 10-bit Dolby vision HDR recording with 4K resolution and 60 frames per second! With this in your hands, you can create Hollywood-worthy movies. To top it off, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max have LiDAR which even NASA uses! This gives these phone AR capabilities and automatically focuses in low light. You won’t have to worry about leaving your selfie light at home anymore!
