Although Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will go on sale on October 23, many media have already got the prototypes and tested them. The biggest selling point of this year’s new iPhone is that it supports 5g. At the same time, it has greatly improved the performance, display quality and camera, but the battery life is disappointing. < / P > < p > masable: when you open an app or browse content on iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 pro, you feel that the speed is significantly improved. Lidar scanners also help ensure that augmented reality applications run more smoothly. However, the iPhone 12 Pro doesn’t seem to have much longer battery life than the iPhone 11 pro. Under normal circumstances, Apple’s new machine can stand by for a whole day. However, when it is frequently used, about 22% of the electricity will remain after about 7.5 hours. < / P > < p > Engadget: even though Apple has introduced a lot of new features this year, the battery life of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro is comparable to that of the iPhone 11 pro. This means that it can last 11 to 12 hours after full charge, and even stand by until the next day on weekends when it is less used. Usually, that’s not too bad for a phone of this size. But in fact, the iPhone 12 is worse than the iPhone 11, which has a standby time of up to a day and a half. < p > < p > < p > connect: video is Apple’s strong point. It provides smooth and stable visual effects that only Samsung can match. In the iPhone 12 pro, we are now able to capture HDR video at 4K and 60 frames per second, enhanced with Dolby vision technology. Dolby vision is a software technology that can increase color depth and dynamic range. Users need a screen that supports Dolby vision to experience all the enhanced features. < / P > < p > CNET: the main wide-angle cameras on both phones have faster lenses that allow more light to come in. The new lens, combined with smart HDR 3 technology, can produce amazing photos with accurate color, stable dynamic range. Night mode now appears on ultra wide angle and self timer cameras. The pictures taken in night mode are very good. Compared with the iPhone 12, the long focus camera on the iPhone 12 Pro has made great progress in terms of zoom. < / P > < p > < p > WSJ: these two new models have the same ultra wide angle camera, which is very suitable for capturing the whole scene. They were significantly improved in the low light test of the iPhone 11. But the iPhone 12 Pro adds a telephoto camera for close-up shots and a lidar sensor that uses lasers to capture depth information. This will improve the AR application and also enable night portrait mode. < / P > < p > masable: please don’t buy the new iPhone just to experience 5g. All four of Apple’s iPhones released this year support sub-6 (slower) and millimeter wave 5g networks, but that’s not important at the moment, because neither technology is widely used. It is also important that even if 5g networks are deployed in the user’s area, they must upgrade the carrier package to use it. < / P > < p > CNET: We tested these phones on T-Mobile and Verizon’s 5g networks in Greenville, South Carolina. The service coverage of the two operators is impressive, but 5g speed is not always the same. With Speedtest, the download speed of iPhone 12 running T-Mobile network is between 10.4 and 14.9 Mbps, while that of iPhone 12 Pro is between 97.9 and 104 Mbps using Verizon network. < / P > < p > the verge: unless users love ar gimmicks or night portrait mode, the lidar sensor on the iPhone 12 is of little value. When taking pictures in normal light, the camera will focus as usual, and the lidar sensor is not activated at all. < / P > < p > connect: if a user has already bought an iPhone 11 or an iPhone 11 pro, it may not be necessary to upgrade to iPhone 12. If users want a better camera and have enough disposable income, the iPhone 12 is a good choice. If users want to change their lives by owning a 5g phone, there is no need to buy the iPhone 12 now. < / P > < p > the verge: the iPhone 12 Pro costs $200 more than the iPhone 12, and the former does look cooler. Some people value its telephoto lens, its ability to take portraits in night mode, and its lidar capabilities. In other ways, however, there is little difference between the two, so don’t rush to buy the iPhone 12 pro. The iPhone 12 Pro Max has a much larger screen, and camera performance is likely to improve significantly, and it may be worth more. Didi Qingju bicycle has entered 150 cities
