Hands-on of iPhone 12: screen and battery draw attention in the new phone


Apple launched in Brazil, last Friday (20), the iPhone 12 line of smartphones. They are divided into four models – iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max – with an initial price of R $ 6,999. As usual, the company opened pre-sales a week earlier for consumers.

O Digital Look received a unit of the iPhone 12 in green for testing. In this new generation, it is the natural evolution of the iPhone 11, but it brings more things in common with the Pro line. Our first impressions, 24 hours after using the new iPhone, you can see now, and the full review in the coming days.

Design and canvas

The first difference of the iPhone 12, in relation to the previous generation, is the design. Although not very radical in terms of aesthetics, the cell phone is smaller and lighter. The main change is in the flatter shape both on the sides, as well as the front and rear. Apple did not change the position of the buttons, but it brought the entry for operator SIM chip to the left side.

The colors of the new iPhone 12 are white, black, green, blue and red. The shape of the camera set at the rear is similar to that of the iPhone 11, with a small square. the two sensors, the LED flash and the microphone. In addition, the back of the cell phone, which is made of glass, bears only the mirrored Apple logo.

The smartphone has IP68 resistance against water (up to six meters deep for 30 minutes) and aluminum sides. His screen, which is now OLED, is the same 6.1-inch size as the last model, but the edges are smaller – and there is still space dedicated to Face ID. The resolution also increased to 2532 x 1170 pixels, which improves image quality and is noticeable on first contact.


The two rear cameras on the iPhone 12 feature 12 MP – aperture f / 1.6 on the main lens and f / 2.4 on the ultra-wide angle (120). The front camera has the same resolution and f / 2.2 aperture on the lens. The phone also has the third generation of the HDR Smart feature and can shoot with HDR Dolby Vision, things that we will test in the coming days.

Below, you can see some of the first photographs taken with the iPhone 12. At first, it is possible to notice a good contrast ratio in the images and noise smoothing in an indoor setting with medium light.

Performance and battery

The flagship of this new generation is the A14 Bionic chip. It is produced in the five nanometer process and has six cores, in addition to the GPU having four cores. The iPhone 12 still has 4 GB of RAM and options with 64 GB, 128 GB or 256 GB of internal storage.

Right off the bat, comparing directly with an iPhone XR, the phone proved to be faster. In the past 24 hours, we have had no sign of a delay in opening, closing or switching applications. On the contrary, everything is very fluid, whether in a basic interaction, in the reproduction of a game or in the rendering of a slightly edited video.

His battery has 2,815 mAh. And, as we well know, there is no socket for charging it included in the box, just a USB-C cable for Lightning. But, considering this period of a day away from the outlets, the cell phone still had 31% energy at the time of publishing this text. Despite moderate use, management has done well.


The iPhone 12, compared to the iPhone 11, has more attractive features. And not only specifically about the design, which pleased at first, but mainly on the screen that is now OLED. One point that we will keep an eye on is the analysis of the battery, which has behaved well in the last hours.

All details about the iPhone 12 on a daily basis will be published soon in our review.
