Best iPhone 12 Buyer’s Guide – Don’t Make these 6 Mistakes in 2021

Best iPhone 12 Buyer’s Guide – Don’t Make these 6 Mistakes in 2021

For the first time ever, Apple has released four new iPhone models, now including the iPhone 12 mini, so i can say with absolute certainty that it’s never been this hard to decide which iPhone you should actually buy, especially since we also have the $400 iPhone SE that’s still a great deal!

So what I’m gonna do in this artical is tell you guys the real-world differences and recommend each iPhone for different use-cases, helping you decide which one you should buy. But before I get into the Buyer’s guide portion of this artical, I want to go through 6 different mistakes that you MUST be aware of so you can avoid them when buying a new iPhone, so let’s get started with

Mistake #1:

Don’t buy the iPhone 12 Pro models thinking you need them for the best 5G coverage, the fact is that the regular
iPhone 12, and even the 12 mini, have identical 5G support, including mm Wave 5G and everything else like WiFi 6, so don’t spend the extra cash on the Pro if that’s all you really care about.

Mistake #2:

is buying the iPhone 12 mini without considering the battery life impact. This phone is super small, in fact, smaller than the iPhone 6, so if you really really care about battery life, I would steer away from the mini model, and just pay $100 more for the larger iPhone 12.

Mistake #3:

is buying the iPhone 12 Pro models thinking you need them for the better display, water resistance or the thinner design. What’s really shocking this year is that the regular iPhone 12 gets the same exact Super Retina XDR display with 1200 nits of peak brightness and the same crazy good 460 pixels per inch. The only downside is that in typical
usage, it’s limited to 625 nits compared to 800, but that’s it.

In terms of water resistance, the regular iPhone 12 models get iP68 at 6 meters for up to 30 minutes, exactly the same resistance as the Pro models, which wasn’t the case last year since the iPhone 11 only had 2 meters of IP68. And what’s even more surprising is that the regular iPhone 12 models have the exact same thickness as the Pro models, 7.4mm.. Which wasn’t the case last year since the iPhone 11 was really thick at 8.3mm.

Mistake #4:

is buying the iPhone 11 Pro if you want the absolute best camera quality. The iPhone 12 Pro Max gets massive camera improvements, including a much better main camera sensor that is 47% larger and improves low light by a huge 87%.

It also gets the new sensor-shift stabilization feature which is gonna make for super smooth video and sharp photos, and it gets an improved telephoto lens with a longer 65mm zoom compared to 52mm on the 12 Pro, so definitely buy the 12 Pro Max if you want the absolute best camera quality.. And it’s great that it’s only $100 more.

Mistake #5:

if you’re planning on buying the regular iPhone 12 models, don’t miss out on the crazy good value storage upgrade. For only $50 more, you get double the storage up to 128GB, which is a MUST if you take a lot of photos and video. I currently have the 11 Pro Max with 64GB and it’s nowhere near enough, so I recommend that $50 upgrade on the regular models.

Mistake #6:

is thinking you should buy the iPhone 11 Pro model for less cash now that the iPhone 12 is out.. And my answer is a very strong NO! Even if you can find the iPhone 11 Pro brand new for $800, absolutely 100% buy the regular iPhone 12 model instead because it’s almost got all of the same features like the OLED display,

but it gets even better camera quality, it’s got much better cellular service, it’s quite a lot thinner, and it’s got the new design with flat sides which should should be staying around for the next few years. So even though it’s missing a couple of features like the telephoto camera, absolutely buy the regular iPhone 12 instead of the 11 Pro.
