I planned an iPhone upgrade this year but I’m so impressed with Apple’s new eco friendly strategy that I will support their vision by not buying one at all.
@J Cino did anyone ask you to state that? no
@J Cino shut up
@J Cino and hi
@J Cino18 people asked
To be honest with you, I'm glad Apple brought back the square-shaped version for the iPhone 12 ever since the iPhone 5.
@Razaan weak genes? Sucks to be faulty 😂
It does look pretty sleek
@R3K7 nah 5 got it, my previous iPhone was 5s and it was that shape
I have always adored the sleek flat design of the 5/5s, glad it's back in 2020!
Its the one good thing happened in 2020.
Trash talk someone your own age, buddy
@Godzilla Kaiju GK! 🅥 honestly I feel like people forget about the 5 way before the 4 when mentioning this comparison
oh are u blind? that kaiserdesign, with a 720p ips display, single old iphone 7/8 cam/ 2gig ram/64 gig of storage thats not expandable, tiny battery and that sucky lightning port? wow if u gonna buy this phone and then brag bout it, im gonna come up with my Galaxy S10 youre gonna cry ;) i have no support for ppl buying this angent peace of tech and thinkin they got some new and good, pls no :P
Please stop forgetting about the iPhone 4 and 4S
apple: no we are removing ports next iphone, charge with a magsafe.people:ok what about earbuds and headphones?apple:we already assume you have at least 1 of our airpods by now.
Thats good tho
@Andrew Ahrenholtz do somehow attach cords to your AirPods? If so, I have a much cheaper alternative for you 🤓🥴
It was hell during the iPhone 12 launch when I worked at MetroPCS... everyone would get mad at us and say " how do we charge our device?" We said "you have to buy theType C Charger separately" and they would get mad at US. Lol
Even though i dont have an iphone, i use airpods for my android🤣
Definitely agree with the battery drain, been testing the 5G here in Australia and wow it’s a drainer for sure
Never mind so the the phone dies a lot
Wait you live in Australia and have the 5g band on the right? I live in Australia like not that far away from Melbourne but I don’t the 5g band
@Theo Argyros $1199 idiot
@NepaliTech Reviews your Nepali government doesn’t give a shit
@H0901 base iPhone 12 is $800, pro is $1000 and I’m pretty sure the pro max is $1100
You have been one of my favorite Clip-Share channels for a while now. Thank you for all the work you put in - you’re always professional yet entertaining.
@Christopher Salmeron Hi :)
Hello how are you doing.
@katelyn Joubert Oh hey sister
i love your last name
I bought mine about 2 months ago and I’ve gotta say I was coming from an iPhone XS and the screen size felt like it was gonna be a deal breaker for me, but after getting used to it, it has become the perfect phone size, if you’re getting it I would recommend to go for bold text in settings and maybe making text size a bit bigger which will help visibility, battery life is decent and the cameras are ridiculously good 👍 all in all very happy with my purchase
@ArmaDolo scuse me 54 so lol? You sayin I’m old
@CRB - LL Z ROASTED
@ArmaDolo are you 10?
Are you like 50 years old?
The amount of work they put in this video is crazy good! That Ceramic Shield animation is what sets them apart from the rest! Great job guys!
uh that animation came from apple’s launch event
Great review and excellent thought on the oops, magsafe charging direction. Not everyone likes wireless everything, though the portless concept opens up room for more chip features.
*Can't wait for the pro review!*
I love Samsung .. Apple is not good this days 🙂
I’m waiting for the mini how long will the battery last?
@Donye Swinton End of 🖕
@Akhil Naidu end of what
@Donye Swinton This is the End.
The iPhone 5 was my all time favorite phone. I’ve had an iPhone 6 Plus that my grandma gave me when she was done with it 3 years ago. I had android for a few years before that. I’m definitely wanting the 12, I’m impressed. I want that nostalgic feel so bad. It’s an iphone 5 of the future lol
I got the iPhone 13 pro, and both this and the 12 pro hold similar designs. It’s just beautiful. Stainless Steel around with frosted glass in the back, it’s just what makes me love apple
I must say mkbhd changed his way of reviews past few months....now it’s more grounded for common users....loving the new contents..keep it up 👍
I’m really happy that they went back to the flat design. I just wish the camera doesn’t protrude without a case. I still love the old iPhone 4 glass back with aluminum steel band. That was classy as hell.
A wise man once said: “Glass is glass, and glass breaks”
@Jorge Fernando it is
@RSHD whats your problem of him saying that u chill buddy
That’s the truth anyway 😂
Marques, dude! Your reviews are the most pragmatic one. I mean we all watch a hell lotta of different reviewer and many of them really good with their videos but you being out the very practical aspects and probably that's why people relate to you! Cheers man
Really good phones, they really did good this year. Hopefully on the next iPhone they make good phones with good batteries.
Just recently acquired this device and it’s my favorite iPhone ever mostly because of the nostalgia I get from the 5s but all in all I love it so far !
went from a 6 to the 12, best upgrade i ever did however the sizing did take a while to get used to as its pretty wide and square compared to the thin 6
I’ve just upgraded from a 6 to a 12. How are you finding it?
thats why i got a mini
can we talk about how marques and his team is just pumping videos out for us to watch. Hats off!!
its techtober he gotta keep it going
@Robert Patterson his standard is qualifyhe literally used to mention it in his intro
@Jiwoo Park That’s just his standard bro
@Robert Patterson yeah but he takes the time to make it quality for us
Omg he did his job?! Seriously...
Coming from the XR, I definitely notice all the differences. And of course I’ll be using this for at least 2 years.
Yeah from xr I jumped to the 12pro and it’s too beautiful
I remember watching these last year and i am so obsesed with it now im getting it in a few hours , really my dream phone😭❤
Why not the 13?
My favorite iPhone design. I loved the iPhone 5 and SE. Glad they brought it back and made it bigger. Feels great in hand
You're so amazing, you told me anything i ever needed. I always wanted to see if the phone is flat because i don't like the curved ones and i don't know much about them.
He is the most honest honest technology legend I’ve ever seen en the best thing is that he is continuing being honest even getting millions of subs!Great work @mkbhd
Appreciate the review! I’m sold on the iPhone 12. So much so, I purchased it and expect it Thursday to enjoy! It is an upgrade from the iPhone 11 and I’m glad to hear about the screen, how it is prone to scratches. I already plan to put a screen protector on it, and a cover like I did with the 11. Great review, and thanks! 👍🏾
@veterinarian 🐶 the battery does very well! It lasts all day for me and sometimes, I can go into the next day with more than half the charge. Never had to worry about battery issues.
@Ieoninc how’s your iphone 12’s battery ?
I just got this one in 2022. I didn't like the new color schemes and this model fits my needs. Maybe if next year they come out with something awesome, I'll upgrade to it.
I have an iPhone 12 pro in Australia and the Australian versions did not come with the ultra wide antenna. Amazingly most of the country is within a very short time is going to have a version of 5G as the roll-out is going very fast
As a material science major, hearing Marques talk about toughness vs. hardness is such an epic crossover for me
@vivian garcia still better than simping to a random girl on the internet
@Bricknose91 it is ngl
@KrazyKillers40 thank you for thinking my major is a flex 😭
@vivian garcia you have an anime avi you’re the real virgin here
@Gilbert Lopez king
Excellent videos!! Thank you! 👍🏽 What service should I get when I buy the iPhone12? Should I buy the 12 from the same place I get service? Is there a good emergency battery bank for if you lose power in a storm? Do you like 64 or 128gb? I never had a cell phone before and hope to keep this one and be done. Is the 12 the 1 I should go for? I’m clumsy, so should I get screen protector and otter box commuter or defender? Can I use my iPad charger for the phone and vice versa? Thanks for great video and explaining 5 G, etc.
When I got my 11 pro max I put on a $1 screen protector, and a $5 clear case. I went to the beach the other day and took both them off, and as I thought, phone looks brand new. (Don’t worry I bought a new screen protector and used the same case)
I upgraded from an iPhone 7 to the 12 recently and am honestly amazed, other than slight glitches it's perfect.
I was using a 10R, felt how light my friend’s 12 was & with +1gb of ram I upgraded a few days later.
Crazy how a 5-6 year old design can feel modern when reintroduced.
Apple arrt genius! Give you a phone from 2010 and charge 1000-1500 for it lol
What’s old is new again
That's what Retro is all about. (:
same with fashion.
So I'm not the only one to realise that!
Question on the 5G. I just got my 12 so curious about the smart mood. Does the phone automatically switch itself to lite or do you have to adjust it somewhere on your settings?
Its auto. You wont even realise
The scratch resistance and shatter protection is so true . Dropped my phone a couple times , no cracks but a whole lot of scratches from things like putting the phone down on a rough surface or slightly dragging the phone trying to pick it up if I accidentally put it face down on a table . XD .
Marques, Great Review. I wanted to check if you can throw some light on the Green dots that appear in the pictures and videos shot on iPhone 12. can it be fixed by Apple or should we replace the Camera?
I always check your reviews before i buy anything. Got my 1st iphone last week im loving my iphone 12 (black) your reviews are 🔥
Where did you buy it and what carrier advice? Thanks. Take care.
I swear Marques' reviews can single handedly affect the sales of any phone
@Dino Dumbo 13 poor kid can’t afford it so stfu
@Fido Montoya dude, is the same fucking phone and he's saying is the best ,come on hahahahaha
@Dino Dumbo 13 Don’t be a salty baby.
I mean you're not wrong
Especially an iPhone. Which are you leaning towards?
Your reviews are both articulate and awesomely to a point. I am now an attentive subscriber! -max
Great content as always 🤗
if i get the regular 12, i’m definitely going for the purple one
White is so premium
It’s beautiful :’)I’m not biased because I’m purple amongus :>
I’ll be getting the iPhone 13 Pro Max and I can’t wait! There are already apple cases for it and custom cases. Will see which one to pick.
@That High Guy how is the battery going?
I just ordered the red it’s getting delivered Wednesday I’m happy because I got the 7 plus right now
When ever I need an honest review. I know Marques Brownlee will have it.
Btw just got a iPhone 13.
This is true!
We are living in the World, where *Product Red* is *Orange* 🤨
Well its actually red on the iPhone 13 now
So damn true😅
is it coral-esque?
@Hyogo Marume I got the product red and think it looks great tbh
I just got it, it’s definitely salmon color. Kinda pissed I didn’t watch this video before ordering
with better drop protection they should just focus on shatter proof with the screen and then make a screen protector and make it mainly scratch resistant
I’ve taken a photo last night using dark mode on my black iPhone 12 and omg the results are just so crisp and clear!!
Just got the iPhone 12 Pro. Feels amazing in my hand, coming from an 11
I’ve just got this - going from a super busted iPhone 7 to a new iPhone 12 is pretty extreme
Let’s take a second to appreciate how wild techtober is and how many videos he’s outputting for us this month, not to mention keeping a consistent high quality and content ratio 👏👏👏👏👏
yeah he is kinda the best creator in the youtube for of now
Awesome, review! I just purchased my i12 yesterday 3/8/22 and I absolutely love it! I own a Galaxy s20 ultra 5G, as my backup communication source. I actually, like my i12 better than my s20 ultra. Thanks, Apple!
Another helpful review-keep em up!
I think it would be dope if they used square sides but with no rounded corners like the old xperia phones but i bet they will someday.
Yeah. They finally have oled displays, new features, usable ram, normal battery size, and usable base storage. Welcome to the smartphone world
Watching this on my new blue iPhone 12😍 Upgraded from my iPhone 6s after 3 years of use... Would have been even better if it had 120Hz display.Really happy with this tho(Suggest me a silicon case color to match my blue phone)
@VIZ Every single person who sees my phone asks this exact question🤣 Since it’s silicone even if it gets dirty a soft wipe with a cloth wd clean it…😙
@Mid G oh okay but wouldnt it get dirty?
@VIZ thanks man! But guess what.. I’ve been rocking it with a white silicone 😄
Can I suggest you?U shud go with Black silicone case
Plus. One..two..one..Three..nine... Eight..zero..Three...six...zero....four...Whatsapp for more tips
i have it mint and i really think its a great iphone. my mom has the the 12 pro max and the one thing she loves about it is the amazing ceramic shield! who else agrees ?
One thing I like about Marques’ reviews is that he is very… down to earth. I mean, he’s not easy to impress, and doesn’t let himself be influenced by marketing gimmicks
Congratulations you have been selected amongst our shortlisted winner's ✅
I bought this phone just because it sort of reminds me of the 5S. And I dont use a case because that sharp edge is just so good.
Bro you’re the only reviewer I can watch a whole 18 minutes of. There wasn’t a single point in the video where you were dragging on. Watching your videos is way too refreshing!
The recap bit at the end is really helpful even after watching the entire video, just getting a nice run down afterwards is nice.
Thank you so much for your review. I was trying to weigh my options with my company phone. We can only get the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE or the iphone 12. Which would you recommend?
Love you and your videos! Thank you so much!You’re such a pro! 😌💛
Had the I phone XR for years, just got an I phone 12 a couple days ago, loving it so far.
iPhone: doesn’t come with the chargerCharger: doesn’t come with the brick
@Major might be a bit more expensive but many manufacturers make usb c cables and samsung have been using them for a while so saying not many people make them is a load of shit 😂 hell most rtx cards have a usb c port on them and they are used for linking a quest to a pc so dunno where you got your info from 😂 go on amazon and look for usb c cables youll find plenty 😂
great way to make money! profit> all
@Major Yes compared to a USB-A, a USB-C is a lot more expensive to manufacture relatively speaking. But not in the grand scheme of things, especially not compared to the rest of the phone and the total cost of manufacturing the whole "product", so no, Apple does not have any excuse whatsoever to remove the charger, they should've been ashamed of themselves for putting that pathetic 5W in there in the first place during the last 3-4 years. And so, instead of making this piece of shit move that they just did, which is just sooo audacious, that I'm just lost for words.. they should've made amends for the 5W charger of shame and put a 15, 18 or 20W in the box instead. And while doing so, killing of that outdated, obsolete lightning port.
@Super knullisch for a normal usb charger, not a usb-c
@Ahmed Al-Sharif So how do you feel now? Feeling stupid much..?🤡😁😁
I recently bought an iphone 12 (red).And i notice, the battery drains very fast.While doing video call (with wired headset and on wifi) the battery drains from 85 % to 30 % in 2 hrs.
Great review i have the iPhone 12 Pro Max in the new blue. With case and privacy screen protector 🤘
Once again MKBHD nailed it! Getting an iPhone 12 soon🎉
7k dislikes? some people are just wack ... you're amazing. Thank you for the information and the time you put in. Haters can burn.
Marques, your videos are the best quality tech review videos out there. This is just another example of why I value your opinion over many other reviews I watch. You set the bar each and every time.I'm really looking forward to the 12 Pro review as this is the one I have on order from Sprint/T-Mobile (Sprobile?) Anyway, keep up the good work. Also, can you keep us up to date on the magsafe prints on the back of the phone? Let us know if it gets worse. I have a wireless charger already on my night stand for my Pixel 4XL that I will use for my new 12 Pro when it gets here but I may consider a magsafe charger later down the line.
Any ideas regarding the gaps between the screen and frame?
best review. comprehensible. objective. keep it up.
You know it's gonna be a good iPhone year when the review is 18 minutes long
Watching this video on an iPhone 12 and I can confirm it is a great phone
@Philippos Nicopoulos bruh that charger has type C at one end...you gotta use 11 pro brick only
@Growing Melancholy why?
@Stressball Louis Many reasons, but the reason I am referring to here is about them making people buy chargers. They say it is for environmental reasons. Okay, if that really is the case then why not make it optional? If you need a charger, they give you one for free, if you don't need, then they don't give you one. It's more about making more money.
Yeah, fuck Apple. When I need a new phone, I'll look elsewhere.
I caved in and copped the 12 today, was gonna wait for the 12s but instead i’ll keep this one till 2022 release depending on whats next
I think the average battery life of the iPhone 12 after its release was mostly due to iOS 14.1. My iPhone 11's battery life had a slight decrease when I updated to iOS 14.1. But that issue is fixed in iOS 14.3 and I am getting great battery life like before after that update. So I guess iPhone 12's battery also got better after iOS 14.3.
@Aritra Dey oh I see, thank you I was just wondering because I wanted to get the 12 and didn’t know if it was better than the 11.
@Mike The regular 12 has a longer battery life than the regular 11 (especially when using in dark mode). The 12 pro battery is a little bit worse than that of 11 pro.
Does the iPhones 12 battery last like the iPhones 11? Or lasts a little longer?
I’m upgrading to this phone from my 8+ so I’m sure this is going to be a huge difference for me. Just the other day my 8+ started having issues with the home button
@Mate O i got the 12+, its pretty good, bit of a learning curve. i dont miss my old 8+
@Mate O had it for 2 months. so far haven’t noticed that
@ceethesea and is the flickering of the display noticeable ?
@Mate O pretty good battery lasts all day and has smooth performance
How is the iPhone 12? I’m with a 7+ right now and I don’t know if to get the iPhone 12 or 11
The thing I’m not looking forward to if Apple gets rid of the port and forces MagSafe is that I won’t be able to use my Popsocket
I'm really pleased that apple in a sense took a step back, with all the "curve", and "Glossy glass backs", its a relief to focus on a more dependable longer lasting exterior. I personally really liked the more "box" like frames, it feels like you have a better grip and in my personal opinion it looks better. I do kind of wish hey would come out with more options with color and the option to have it gloss for the people who like it. Apple has always been kind of limiting when it comes to colors and styles. Overall its a good step away from all the "innovating" new tech. I like practical way more than fancy useless features.
I can't wait for my android days to be behind me. I'm getting my iPhone when I return from my overseas trip later this year. Looking forward to it yay! I'll probably watch this again to decide whether I'll get this or the pro
Just upgraded from the first SE to the 12! Love it already!!
Regarding the portless iphone that they seem to foresee in the future, it would be possible if they made the xcode or IOS development on the Iphone/Ipad without the use of lighting cable to render the developed application let say the coming of monterey OS in the macbook pro with the feature of seamless transfer of application and can execute to different devices
Or a dock tru magsafe for both data transfer and efficient charging...you know the dock in iPad pros that connects to magic keyboards?...
It’s like the Crystal used in watches, sapphire for scratch resistance and mineral crystal for shatter resistance. Then there’s the whole thing about acrylic crystal, but that’s minimal advantages on both fronts.
I like it how all the tech youtubers are supporting each other so nicely. Like how mrwhosetheboss has featured MKBHD in his iphone video and some other videos and here how MKBHD talks about the scratch resistance and talks about zerryrig. They dont consider each other as competitors rather they talk about each others like they're colleagues.
@Prateek Kumar yeah i agree. jerry and mkbhd review tech differently but i dont think there are many ways in which u can differentiate MKBHD and MRWhosetheboss but still they are so supportive of each other. and not just in videos, in real life too. a few years back a tech youtuber Austin Evan's house caught fire and he lost his home so every tech youtuber out there banded together and collected money and bought a macbook to help him. Austin's dad literally cries in that video. and thats the support im talking about
@Robbae yeah exactly. we enjoy everyone's video and all of them are okay with their viewers watching other tech contents, its almost as if they want us to watch other channel's reviews too.
@Evilz Review did I? It was in response to the fact how in business, you don’t need a personal reason to target them. being competition is justifiable means. For Tech youtubers this is their business.
@Evilz Review in business, the fact that you don’t hold monopoly or majority market share gives you enough reason to target a business. Eg if I don’t like mkbhd, I will go watch another Clip-Sharer. But mkbhd will have no beef with said youtuber. Whereas in business, a company will always try to retain its market dominance let alone endorse its competitor
Just like (most part of) the Skincare folks, so Peaceful :")
Quick Question: is the front facing camera great for creating youtube videos?
I am not going to buy this phone but the quality of this review is just 💯.
Bought my first iPhone a couple of weeks ago, and it’s the iPhone 12. Even though it’s not really worth it, I’m in love with this phone
Same , but a day ago
i’m about to get the 12 the only thing i don’t like about it is the square design around. but with a case i don’t think it matters much
I feel like apple is slowly trying to find a way to have every accessory for iphones bought separately to where the only thing you get in the box is the phone.
@Egdar, well next to be not being up to the standards of the industry since its the fuckin most expensive phone on the end consumer market but lags behind at 7 points, Battery, design, savety (no fingerprint under display/ not even on the back) no expendable memory, to week of ROM/RAM, lightning instead of usb c, design that thick bezzals and the big notch, batter capacity, and the charging speed, i mean cmon, wheres the reason to still buy this shit? and this not a IOS vs ANDROID conversation cuz thats subjectivew and at the end of the day not really THAT mutch of a difference to make up for buying it or not :P
Or the actual box itself 😭
@Andrew Minkin That's what you call a presale.
nah nah it’s where you buy the phone separately next year you’ll only get the receipt
Apple stickers and manual sold separately or part of our new apple tech packages!
Watching this again and again to understand how my phone works 🤩
Brilliant review. I’m out to get mine. Thanks
I have 1 question. can you turn on the 5g option and turn it off or, can you turn 5g off and turn on LTE on ur own?
Im stuck between android and ios! I am currently using a samsung, and I am perfectly content with it. However, something about iphpne just appeals a lot to me. I might get an iphone, then use it for a while and make my decision. Can someone tell me, as an android user, if i do switch, will I be missing out on lots of features? Not just system features but hardware and software ones.
Apple: doesn’t add a 4th camera Everyone: *impossible*
Why are there so many accounts like this? You need QUALITY videos, like mine fors subs . PUT IN THE WORK!
They will probably add another one in their next phone since it’s rumored that they’re adding an anamorphic lens for video
wow this comment is very original and never seen before
There’s no point in a 4th camera
Great tips on reviewing the iPhone 12 👌
I went from a 7 to a 12… it surprised me how long a battery could last
There's no excuse for apple to not give 120hz displays. It could be an option like it is on much cheaper devices...
Have just changed over from Android and Samsung S10, glad I did fantastic handset and features.

This is the only popular tech reviewer who includes time stamps. Well done.
