The Pros and Cons of the iPhone 12 According to Gadget Reviewer Marques Brownlee



The iPhone 12 that Apple announced a few weeks ago still leaves euphoria among gadget lovers. Some of them got the chance to try out the iPhone 12 lineup earlier.

One of them is the famous gadget YouTuber, Marques Brownlee, who had the opportunity to explore the iPhone 12. "The iPhone 12 looks and feels good to me, very solid, a little heavy actually," is Marques' first impression that he revealed in a video entitled "iPhone 12 Unboxing Experience + MagSafe. Demo "which aired on his YouTube channel.

Marques admitted that he was very interested in the new design that Apple was carrying. He calls the iPhone 12 similar to the iPad Pro or iPhone 4 or iPhone 5.

The iPhone 12 body, which is square shape (box) instead of rounded (curved), is called Marques, which is more comfortable to hold. However, he regrets that Apple still uses the Lightning port instead of USB-C.

"It looks like they would be better off using USB-C, but as you know, it looks like that is not possible," he said.

Apart from the iPhone 12, Marques also reviewed the iPhone 12 Pro unit. In terms of body, one of the differences is on the side of the frame or casing frame.

The iPhone 12 Pro has a frame made of stainless steel, while the iPhone 12 has a matte aluminum frame. "But I prefer aluminum," said Marques.

According to him, the fingerprint scanner panel used in stainless is not very unsightly. To note, the iPhone 12 fingerprint scanner panel is located on the side.

In the uploaded video, Marques also tries out MagSafe, Apple's new wireless charger that has 15 watts of power.

As previously reported, Apple did not include a charger in the box to buy the iPhone 12 on the grounds that it is more "environmentally friendly".

Users are welcome to use a previously owned iPhone charger or purchase a USB charger separately. You can also buy MagSafe for 39 US dollars (around Rp. 570,000) or bundling with Leather Wallet with MagSafe for 59 US dollars (around Rp. 870,000). That, too, if you have more budget.

One of the things that Marques criticized was that Apple only included a cellphone unit, guidebooks, Apple stickers, and a USB C to lightning cable converter.

Meanwhile, Apple has included a charger head with a USB A port. "So most likely iPhone 12 buyers only have a USB A charger head and have to buy a USB C charger head that Apple sells," said Marques.

Regarding MagSafe, Marques himself was not satisfied. Because, when I tried it, the magnet wasn't too strong, so the MagSafe panel often fell off the back of the iPhone 12.

In addition, Marques also mentioned the position of the 5G antenna on this device. "Many wonder what piece is on the right, under the power button because all the physical buttons are located on the left side? That piece is actually a 5G antenna," said Marques.

As is known, all lines of the iPhone 12, for the first time, support 5G connectivity.
