iPhone 12 vs iPhone 12 Pro Comparison

iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro: How different are they?

If you're trying to decide between an iPhone 12 and an iPhone 12 Pro, keep in mind that they mainly differ in design and color options. While the iPhone 12 Pro is available in graphite, silver, gold, and Pacific Blue, the iPhone 12, comes in white, black, blue and green. In terms of feel, the iPhone 12 is lighter (164 g) than the iPhone 12 Pro (189 g). As for materials, both iPhones have a glass back. However, the iPhone 12 has an aluminum frame, while the iPhone 12 Pro has a solid stainless steel frame.

 

Which iPhone 12 takes better photos?

The iPhone 12 Pro has an extra lens, a 2x 12 MP optical zoom with an f/2.0 aperture. Also, the iPhone 12 Pro has a LiDAR scanner that allows for better distance measurement in augmented reality. Both the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro have a 12 MP Front Sensor, can take photos and videos with 4K quality, and have slow-motion mode.

 

iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro: What are the performance differences?

Both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro feature the same processor, the Apple A14 Bionic with 6 cores. Image transitions and speed of execution are excellent, even in the most demanding games. The only performance difference between the two models is the RAM: While the iPhone 12 Pro is available with 6 GB of RAM, the iPhone 12 is equipped with 4 GB of RAM. However, this difference is negligible in everyday use. The internal storage capacity is also better on the iPhone Pro. The iPhone 12 Pro is available with 128 GB, 256 GB, or 512 GB of storage, while the iPhone 12 is available with 64 GB, 128 GB, or 256 GB.

The bottom line on iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro

It mostly comes down to your personal preferences around look and feel, as most of the technology under the hood is the same for both models. However, super serious photographers and those needing an ungodly amount of storage space, might want to opt for the Pro.
