Hi, dear Apple fans! Are you excited to know every detail of iPhone 12? Luckily for you, in this article, we'll bring you the latest iPhone 12 feature review and also the problems coming out along with it. Let's get started!

Part 1. The Most Attractive Features of iPhone 12

The iPhone 12 series has received extensive attention at home and abroad since it accepted pre-orders on October 16th. Many media even predicted that the iPhone 12 will break the sales record of the iPhone 6 series and become Apple's best-selling mobile phone series, which makes many people look forward to its performance. Now, let's find out what kind of charm can the iPhone 12 attract so many consumers!

5G Connectivity

All the iPhone 12 model in this year's lineup made it to support 5G, and Apple has officially enabled the system update function under cellular network for these devices. The implementation of 5G connectivity allows us to enjoy faster downloads and uploads, reducing the time for us to open websites and download TV programs and movies.

Light Weight

According to the feedback from consumers, we can see that the most humanized feature of iPhone 12 compared with other Android 5G mobile phones is its light weight. In the 4G era, smart phones once pursued thinness, and even more regarded it as the main selling point. However, in the 5G era, in order to compete for market share and create high cost-effective mobile phones, piling up configuration has become the mainstream style. While iPhone 12 Mini, 12 and 12 Pro are only 7.4mm. And in terms of weight, the iPhone 12 Mini, 12 and 12 Pro are 133g, 162g and 187G respectively. By far, this slim body and weight are highly praised by users.

OLED Display

Apple has used OLED displays for the first time in its iPhone line and all the iPhone 12 models will be equipped with a Super Retina XDR display, which enables us to more true-to-life colors and paper-like viewing experience.

A14 Chip

Inside the iPhone 12 is a new A14 chip, the first chip in the smartphone industry that was built by the 5-nanometer technology, which can help to improve the performance and efficiency of mobile phones. Apple says that the 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU in the A14 are 50% faster than the fastest chip in the market at present. Besides, A14 chip includes a 16-core neural engine, which can improve the performance of machine learning tasks by 80%.

New Design
