- Superb Camera functionality

Last not but least, our reviewer has added iPhone 12 as a worthy contender. iPhone 12 comes with the latest A-14 bionic chip, 6.1-inches gorgeous Retina “XDR OLED” display(2532×1170 resolution), Magsafe charging facility, and 3000 mAh battery. iPhone 12 misses one rear camera, LiDAR Scanner, and telephoto capability in comparison with iPhone 12 Pro. The other functionality remains the same.
So, iPhone 12 is a good choice in comparison with two costly pro models of iPhone 12, if you do not mind with one “less” rear camera.
If you are ready to spend few dollars more and crazy about iPhone, then we present iPhone 12 before you.
