I have never had faith in Apple, iPhone, or iOS. Still, Android, WindowsPhone and MeeGo or Samsung, Sony, and Huawei seemed better and more suitable. Now I put the SIM card in the latest and most powerful iPhone 12 Pro for 48 hours, and it wasn’t bad at all.
In fact, except for a few significant noticeable lags, in short, it’s a remarkably fast, well-thought-out user interface and software that makes great photos.
So what’s going on for someone who hasn’t used the iPhone as their base phone in years and now takes over the iPhone 12 Pro?
In terms of design, it’s unusually lovely to start with to hold a completely flat device both in front and behind – no screens with curved transitions. This screen is especially useful for playing and writing.
Right, this mobile phone also has a protruding camera capsule in the upper corner, but it is designed so that the mobile phone does not vibrate on the table when typing. The rounded corners of the iPhone are also present on this device, and there’s nothing more to say about the look. Minimalist, non-visible fingerprint back cover, a stainless steel side frame, and plenty of antenna stripes on each side. Power button intuitively in a good location on the right, volume buttons and mute button on the left.
I had an Apple ID before, and everything went perfectly. What was surprising, however, was that while all Android phones offer the ability to transfer data from both old Android and iOS phones, I didn’t have that option on this device. All applications, therefore, had to be searched and downloaded from the App Store one by one. In protest, I installed the Google Search and Maps app on my Apple device. At the outset, it was a positive surprise that the iPhone doesn’t need any back and forth buttons to move through the menu. The main processor and chips are really fast and didn’t detect any giggles when scrolling through views, opening apps, or watching videos. Besides, the device has great stereo speakers.
But I talked about the backlog at the beginning. By that, I meant what was happening with the home screen in particular. I didn’t try to find a way to change the settings, but no: all the icons are still placed on the screen so that no spaces are left, not the way I want them to be placed. Secondly, widgets’ selection is still in its infancy – I couldn’t find a classic time. It’s disturbing that the iPhone still hasn’t introduced the Always-on lock screen functionality, which also displays time and app notifications on the lock screen. It doesn’t bother to turn on the cell phone to check the time. And the “frost” or useless area at the top of the home screen is also incredibly massive. The OLED screen (460ppi, 6.1-inch diagonal) itself is very decent, and according to Apple, thanks to the technology called Ceramic Shield, it is also particularly resistant to shocks and scratches. The water and dust resistance standard for top telephones is the IP68 standard.
Okay, the iPhone 12 Pro doesn’t have a fingerprint reader at all. Instead, use the code or face detection. It is not possible to charge its battery with a USB-C charger, as with all other new mobile phones globally, but you still have to use the old course or wireless charging. The battery itself lasts a very long time; 36 hours after charging, it only announced that the charge level has dropped to 18 percent. The device does not come with a charger in the box, nor do the headphones, but a 512 GB device, for example, still costs somewhere and a half thousand dollars. The memory in the test device was given the usual 128 GB. On the positive side, all the necessary applications from competitors Google (Maps and Search), Microsoft (Outlook), and even Huawei (smartwatch app) are nicely downloadable and work. Two wide-angle cameras and one telephoto add up to a great set of really sharp, well-balanced photos with natural tones when it comes to cameras.
