As you would expect from an Apple product, the iPhone 12 is beautifully crafted, meticulously engineered, and relentlessly efficient. This is the phone Apple designs for the typical phone user. As such, it does everything well and excels at a few things. Software integration is seamless. No phone matches the iPhone for efficient software use. While people will ding the phones for their RAM, the truth is, iPhones simply do not require the RAM other phones do. This phone will run as much as you want to throw at it and never falter. If you are looking for social media, browsing, email, messaging, photography, and media consumption, the iPhone is above average in every one of those areas. What's more, you can rest assured Apple will support the phone for years and it will be a long time before the phone feels the least "outdated". The only issues I've found with the phone? The battery is only above average. If you press the phone with video consumption, heavy gameplay, or heavy social media consumption, you will need a top off before the end of the day. Also, its about time iMessage was able to text non iPhones on wifi. There is simply no good reason Apple doesn't do this, and it would be very useful in low service areas where users may be completely dependent on wifi. Besides that, when compared to other phones, as a daily driver from 2020, the iPhone simply has no peers. As I said, it does everything well!

Pros

  • Software integration
  • Design
  • Value
  • Long-term dependability
  • Apple support
  • Camera
  • Ease of use

Cons

  • Battery could be stronger
  • iMessage should work with Andriod phones on wifi.
