iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12 Comparison

iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12: slight evolution but no revolution 

The iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 12 are two of the most popular smartphones in the refurbished market currently. The iPhone 12 was released more recently, in comparison to the iPhone 11 Pro which was released 1 year earlier, in September 2019.

Subtle differences to suit your preference 

When it comes to camera quality, both phones have a 12 MP rear camera and a 7 MP front-facing camera. However, the iPhone 12 has an additional ultra-wide lens for capturing wider shots. The battery life of each phone is also different; with its 3046 mAh battery, the iPhone 11 Pro can last up to 10 hours when web browsing or streaming videos. On the other hand, the iPhone 12 has a 2815 mAh battery, and will last around 8 hours from doing similar activities. In terms of display size and resolution, both phones have OLED displays but differ slightly in size; the 11 Pro has a 5.8 inch display with 1125 x 2436 px resolution, but the 12 has a 6.1 inch display with 1170 x 2532 px resolution for sharper images and videos. Similar to other iPhone generations, the Pro models have always been a bit smaller in size when compared to the entry-model of each series - a design that perhaps entices users to the Pro model over the cheaper entry-model in each series. Both phones come in multiple colors, but the iPhone 12 arguably has a more colorful array of options to choose from such as red, green, blue, and purple to name a few, whereas the 11 Pro is offered in more darker matte colors such as gray, gold, silver, and green. Both models offer similar storage options, except the 11 Pro has an additional option of 512GB available whereas the highest option on the iPhone 12 is 256GB. In terms of chipset and processor speed they are quite similar and hard to tell on the surface, but technically the iPhone 12 has a superior chipset with the A14 Bionic chip, whereas the 11 Pro has a slightly older A13 Bionic chip instead. Both models are still capable of providing great performance speeds regardless of what you’re doing on your device – be it gaming or multitasking!

iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12: can't go wrong with both!

Finally when it comes to design there isn't much difference between them apart from their sizes; however if you're looking for something more compact (although slightly heavier) then go for an 11 Pro. But if you’re looking for something more recent, with a brighter display and technically better camera software, then opt for the iPhone 12 instead!
