iPhone 12 Review: The perfect iPhone | Trusted Reviews


With the iPhone 12, Apple has brought down many of its ‘Pro' level features from last year's iPhone 11 Pro down to the cheaper model.

Fantastic new design reminiscent of the iPhone 5;Exceptional performance;Very reliable cameras

Screen lacks some of the benefits you’ll find elsewhere;If the notch annoyed you before, it’ll annoy you again

Apple iPhone 12 review: excellent in almost every way


The iPhone 12 is still one of the best iPhones for most people

Fantastic HDR screen & high-quality camera ; Future-proofed with 5G and powerful innards ; New design and build quality

Average battery life ; Only a dual-lens camera ; 60Hz screen

The iPhone 12 is the ideal iPhone for most people, thanks to class-leading screen quality, high-quality cameras and great future-proofing (including 5G). But these features come at slightly high price compared to competitors.

Impressive OLED display ; Musical sound ; Slick and speedy interface

Apple iPhone 12 review: Still a solid choice


Apple's standard iPhone model took a step up in a couple of areas. Is it still worth buying?

OLED display ; More powerful processor ; Better camera experience ; Dolby Vision support ; MagSafe ; 5G

No telephoto lens ; Smudges easily ; Colours aren't as playful as previous years ; Price bump over previous year

For the group of people who want a new iPhone without the price tag of the iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 13 range, this is a great choice. There's no settling for second best with this smartphone.

iPhone 12


The iPhone 12 is the most capable iPhone to date, making it harder than ever to justify the upgrade to the iPhone 12 Pro range.

Apple iPhone 12 review


Say no to Pro?

Stunning to look at and impressively light in the hand ; Finally an OLED display for the non-Pro iPhone ; 5G future-proofed ; Brilliant, versatile camera system

We’d rather have a telephoto than the ultra-wide ; 5G may be here, but most people won’t find much of it yet ; Battery life decent rather than brilliant

Better design, a better display and all the power you’ll ever need make the iPhone 12 a marked improvement over the already great 11 – but don’t buy it for 5G

iPhone 12 Review


There are few things more predictable than the yearly iPhone launch, however the iPhone 12 brings with it more upgrades than usual. It likely won't interest those who picked up an 11 Pro last year, but if you're still clinging on to an older device...

– Fantastic new design, reliable cameras and a huge display upgrade

– Zoom skills are poor, no charger included

The iPhone 12 is great, and a worthy upgrade if you’re hanging on to an older model or you simply must have the latest iPhone. It has a great screen, all-day battery and a design that puts pretty much everything else to shame.

Apple iPhone 12 review: The best iPhone for most people


It's difficult to find fault with the iPhone 12, but Android phones still have the edge on value

Dolby Vision video capture ; 5G in an iPhone at last ; Thinner and lighter than the iPhone 11

No high refresh rate display ; Middling battery life

The iPhone 12 is more than just a collection of benchmark numbers, however – more than the sum of its parts. It represents the accumulation of 13 years of development and it definitely shows.

iPhone 12 review: The best iPhone for most people


Apple's more affordable 6.1in phone is almost indistinguishable from the 12 Pro in all the key areas. Our iPhone 12 review explains why this is the best option for most people right now

Blazingly fast ; Superb camera setup ; 5G-ready

Battery life is so-so ; No telephoto lens

Considering how close the iPhone 12 comes to the 12 Pro in the key areas (design, speed, camera performance) while costing £200/$170 less, we'd recommend this as the best choice for most iPhone buyers right now.
