Three days ahead of its launch, reviews of the iPhone 12 Pro are in. We’ve rounded up impressions of the device below.
With the iPhone 12 now featuring an OLED display like Pro models, The Verge‘s Nilay Patel said the differences between the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro are “fundamentally much smaller than last year,” when the iPhone 11 still had an LCD. In addition to OLED, both devices also feature a faster A14 Bionic chip, 5G support, and a new flat-edge design.
While the iPhone 12 has an aluminum frame, the iPhone 12 Pro features a more polished stainless steel frame, but Patel notes that it is a fingerprint magnet. His team also managed a tiny nick in the frame of the iPhone while reviewing it. In addition to the more durable Ceramic Shield front cover, Apple told The Verge that the new flat-edge design of iPhone 12 models should also improve drop performance.
