How to choose iPhone 12 VS iPhone 12 Pro?

At 8 pm on October 16th, it is the big day to pre-order the iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro. I believe many people are also looking forward to it. However, many people will also ask, should I buy iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro? This article analyzes in detail for everyone.

Difference in appearance

In terms of appearance, the biggest difference between iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro lies in the body material. iPhone 12 Pro uses refined medical grade stainless steel, while iPhone 12 uses aerospace industrial grade aluminum. Simply put, it is a sense of luxury. The iPhone 12 Pro has a shiny and moving edge, while the iPhone 12 is flatter. The iPhone 12 Pro is equally dazzling in blue and gold. However, the premise is that the user can feel the difference in the body without using a mobile phone case or a fully transparent case. The difference in materials also makes the body weight different. The iPhone 12 Pro weighs 187g, while the iPhone 12 only weighs 162g.

Difference in specifications

Basically everyone uses the same A14 processor, but the iPhone 12 Pro has 6GB RAM, while the iPhone 12 has 4GB RAM. However, multi-RAM may not feel the difference in normal operation.

Storage space

Another important point is storage space. The iPhone 12 Pro has 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and the iPhone 12 has 64GB, 128GB, 256GB. The price difference is also the amount of storage space. The 64 GB version of the iPhone 12 and the 128 GB version of the iPhone 12 Pro are the entry-level version. The difference between the two is doubled (64GB), which is worth $150.

Screen difference

Compared with the iPhone 11, the iPhone 12 is replaced by an OLED screen, so it is in line with the iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro are also 6.1 inches, and the screen is no different.

If you want to talk about the difference between iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, the biggest difference between the two lies in photography. iPhone 12 Pro has 3 lenses plus LiDAR, while iPhone 12 has only 2 lenses. Although 2 cameras can also shoot 4K Dolby Vision HDR videos, the iPhone 12 Pro can shoot 60fps, while the iPhone 12 can shoot up to 30fps.

Long focal length shooting

ProRAW support

In addition, the iPhone 12 Pro can use the Apple ProRAW format, which is a feature that professional users love very much because it can adjust the details of the photo after shooting.

iPhone 12 Pro 8

Night portrait shooting

iPhone 12 Pro has LiDAR and optical image anti-shake dual lens, low-light performance is better than iPhone 12, and can use the night mode portrait photos through the LiDAR sensor, faster autofocus in low light. And LiDAR will also help in future AR experiences.
