I am tempted to get it and replace my current one which is iPhone 11, anybody else thinking of after watching the event today?
What's the big difference since the last one? They're too far outside my price range, so haven't followed this launch much.
So, what can you really expect in the States? I'll quote PC Magazine's comprehensive September 2020 speed test of the major wireless networks:
In other words, if you want to buy an iPhone 12 to get faster speeds than you've ever seen before from a smartphone, you're wasting your money . You're also throwing your cash away if you want to get one today to "future-proof" your phone for 5G. By the time, if ever, 5G becomes truly valuable--again except for rural users--you'll be wanting to buy an iPhone 14 or 15.AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon take very different approaches to 5G. To make a long story short, AT&T 5G right now appears to be essentially worthless. T-Mobile 5G can be a big boost over 4G, but its speeds are only what we'd expect from a good 4G network—it isn't a new experience. Verizon's 5G is often mind-blowing, but very difficult to find.
I hope you are not expecting faster speeds with a iPhone 12.
5G is no reason to buy the iPhone 12 - or any phone
Oh dear !!! You would think that these things would have been addressed before launch. Don't they do extensive testing nowadays?
