How much can I save on the various models?
iPhone 12 remains of good value with solid technical specifications. It comes in a 6.1-inch size and Super Retina XDR OLED displays, 5G connectivity, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6.0, an A14 chip, improved cameras, and MagSafe. In contrast to Samsung's Galaxy Note 20 measuring 6.7 inches, the iPhone 12 is 9% smaller and 26 grams lighter. The iPhone 12 also offers better photo and video recording camera quality. However, it’s fair to mention that the battery life is slightly worse compared to Samsung's Galaxy Note 20. The iPhone 12 flat edges differ from the rounded edges of prior models and look like the iPad Pro. Apple also improved its front side protection by a ceramic shield infused with nano-ceramics which offers 4x better drop performance than the standard cover glass of previous models.

iPhone 12 Mini
If you fancy smaller phones, you can consider buying a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini instead, which is technically identical to iPhone 12 aside from the screen size and battery life. Both iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini have aluminium and glass designs in contrast to iPhone 12 Pro phones which come in stainless steel body. Another major difference between iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 pro series is in variety of colours. While iPhone 12 series come in blue, green, red, white, black, and purple iPhone 12 Pro series comes in more prominent silver, graphite, gold, and a new pacific blue colour.

Iphone 12 Pro
Although iPhone 12 Pro features the same 6.1-inch size as regular iPhone 12, it is slightly heavier due to its more premium stainless-steel design. However, this stainless finish along with the colour differences are pretty much the only design differences between regular iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. The phone runs on the same 14 Bionic chip and features a 16-core neural engine as iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max which is 80% performance boost over its predecessor iPhone 11 series. The iPhone 12 Pro has one of the best cameras on any current smartphones with 12mega pixels wide lens, an ultra-wide lens and telephoto lens for varying angles. Although iPhone 12 Pro is slightly more expensive option than regular iPhone 12, it comes with more RAM which will help if you are big on mobile gaming.

iPhone 12 Pro Max
A huge 6.7 inches display with 2778 x 1284 resolution puts iPhone12 Pro Max to the number 1 spot for the biggest iPhone display yet. However, the size is the only significant external difference that set it apart of iPhone 12 pro. The phone weighs 228g which is more than iPhone 12 pro or iPhone 12 series. iPhone 12 Pro Max also comes with extended battery life allowing up to 20 hours of video playback which is 3 extra hours in comparison to iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12. There are a couple of differences between iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max when it comes to camera. First and foremost, is a 47% larger image sensor for the main wide camera on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. This explains the reason the Max’s camera module is noticeably bigger, but it also has the simple benefit of letting in way some more light than its little sibling which make an iPhone 12 Pro Max a low light king.

iPhone 12 series round up
Frankly, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are cut from the same cloth so your choice will depend on the size of the phones you like. Obviously, if you are fan of larger models, iPhone 12 will be your pick. This applies to iPhone 12 Pro series as well where size is the most significant external difference between iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Despite the performance similarities, iPhone 12 Pro Max is slightly better when it comes to camera and battery life. This is a simplified conclusion that can be drawn from our comparison, so if you are considering buying one of the phones we have discussed, 4gadgets will help you to save money and get you the best quality second-hand apple phone.
