The iPhone 12 has largely impressed Apple users as it comes with some amazing features like 5G, and a fresh design for Apple’s new MagSafe chargers.
However, a few things remain missing which would make a user switch from Android.
1. Expandable storage
Apple does not allow users to expand storage using a micro SD card and the new iPhone 12 is no exception.
If you plan on shooting many 4K videos or downloading a lot of large, graphically demanding games then you should look at the higher capacities.
2. Fingerprint scanner
Apple retired the classic home button with its built-in fingerprint scanner several generations ago. It was instead replaced with FaceID.
FaceID doesn’t work with face masks so people are back to typing in PIN codes in order to access their phones.
Many Anroid phones have built the fingerprint scanners into the display. They’re invisible and take up no additional space on the phone, making them the best solution to biometric security when face scanning is impossible.
3. 120 Hz screen refresh rate
A faster refresh rate gives a smoother look and feel to the phone when it is being used.
This feature is increasingly common on Android phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S20and OnePlus Nord.
Apple opted to stay with 60Hz to help improve battery life, particularly as the addition of 5G makes the phones even more power-hungry.
4. Telephoto lens
The iPhone 12’s camera takes some superb images with its default wide view and with the super wide lens. What it can’t do is zoom in with the telephoto lens found in previous generations. Telephoto lens provides additional shooting options.
Apple’s upcoming ProRaw is an image format that uses some of the computational photography capabilities of the cameras but allows for deeper editing options. It is much like a raw image file taken on a professional DSLR.
There is a chance that Apple could bring the feature to phones beyond the Pro line.
