Matt James Paradise, 23 Feb 2021Long term would be two years. This is not long term. 🤦Then by that period this iPhone12 will be trash like every other Android phones except for Pixel phones. Those Android phones won't be updated anymore.

The dreaded green bubbles that effectively makes you a second-class citizen.

The camera lense glare on the pictures after taking the shot due to direct light is the biggest downside!

iPhone is the best

After all switching to Android makes my life simpler and more fun. Period. I don't want to go back to iPhone ever since

It was tested with the Sony Xperia 5 II .. and the Sony won almost in everything.

Guys what about the camera performance?
Seems to me that i12 has a lot of ghosting and little to none difference from i11

Real world gaming prowess is tested with real games.
It can't go beyond 45fps on Genshin Impact due to lack of cooling. Snapdragon 865 easily scored 58-60fps on a proper gaming phone like ROG 3.

Keep your benchmarks to yourself as IPhone scores 1600 in GeekBench yet loses to ROG 3 with score of 960 in real world speed test.

Air triggers are super useful. Only people downplaying then are people who don't have it on their phones.

I don't get it. When android phone has no 120hz is out of date, iPhone is not. When android phone has no jack or sd slot is very bad, for iPhone it is fine. When camera setup is last year's it is a problem only for android phone. And so on and so on...

MrDong, 14 Feb 2021The iPhone 12 Pro Max does not even have a thermal throttli... moreNaah! Gaming on a 60 hz display for competitive gaming is outdated just like the recent iPhones are. They have great GPU but limited by hardware. Lack of any cooling solution is also a problem. OnePlus 8 Pro is much better for gaming than recent iPhones.

Highest for a modern flagship. Compare this to some flagships where a screen replacement also requires a new battery like Samsung. The Note 20 Ultra only received a 3/10. Screen replacements are also very expensive.

I have a Samsung S20 FE 5G with 240Hz touch sampling rate but my iPhone 11 with half the sampling rate responds much better based on personal experience. The touchscreen accuracy is a lot better and near-perfect.

Airtriggers etc. do not appeal to most consumers anyway. Can just buy a dedicated console.

Watch some PUBG Mobile tournaments and phones such as the Xs Max and 11 Pro Max are being used by top players due to its great optimisation and high accuracy touchscreen.
