iPhone 12 Vs iPhone XR! (Comparison) (Review)

by birtanpublished on November 2, 2020

Welcome back everyone let's go ahead and do another comparison this time around between the newly released iphone 12 and the somewhat older iphone 10r i'm pretty sure everyone knows what the iphone 10r is this was kind of like a budget phone that came on in 2018 from apple and this is kind of like its successor but the price tags are way different on these apple's still selling the iphone 10r this thing is 499 brand new from apple the iphone 12 on the other hand costs 829 dollars so definitely a lot more money for the iphone 12.

Is it worth it i guess we're going to go and find out if you want to pick up either one of these i'll find the cheapest ones on amazon link them down in the description below you can get them from there and help support the channel at the same time now side by side i do have the black iphone 10r and the white iphone 12 not that matters and you can see that definitely side by side they are almost kind of like the same phone one thing i've been able to see with the iphone 12 series is that they kind of seem less wide you know the

Iphone 10r definitely seems a little bit more wider because of the side bezel or the body bezel the iphone 12 because of the flat sides it really like lost a lot of that black type of bezel that you're seeing from that size here so the screen sizes are exactly the same though you have a 6.1 inch panel on the iphone 10r it is an ips panel the resolution is a little bit above hd not full hd keep that in mind but it's still a pretty decent panel you

Have true tone on it you have haptic feedback and of course when it first came out a lot of people were you know kind of hating on it including me but ever since then i've been kind of you know grown into it and i don't think it's a bad panel at all and i think for sure even in 2020 a lot of panels like yeah of course they're not it's definitely not the best but looking at this iphone and looking at the iphone 12 it's really not a bad panel now when you compare this panel to a galaxy s20 or

Something then it's a whole different league but since we're comparing these two phones it's a little bit different the iphone 12 on the other hand has that 6.1 inch oled display so we're going from an ips to an oled panel which is really cool on top of that it kind of shaved off a lot of the size like i stated and on top of that it also has a high resolution display so this one is a little bit above full hd which is really cool

So you're going basically from hd to full hd which that in of itself is a pretty big deal in my opinion and the panel itself looks pretty good i don't know if it's like a hundred thousand times better like it's definitely i guess better if you want it to be like that but i wouldn't necessarily go from an iphone 10r to the iphone 12 just because of the way the display looks in my opinion there may be some other areas for that but in terms of the display the iphone 12 wins but

I think the iphone 10r still holds up in the display department for sure now in terms of the thinness you can kind of see that the iphone 10r it kind of first of all it kind of appears to be thinner but it may not be the case apple said the iphone 12 is technically thinner than i guess the thickest point of the iphone 11 and i guess it's kind of the same thing here the iphone 10 kind of feels thinner because the sides are curved so kind of keep that in mind and on the back you can see a dual

Camera setup on the iphone 12 and a single camera setup on the iphone 10r glass backs on both pretty much the same type of setups they feel almost exactly the same in the hand you do have that magsafe type of capability on the iphone 12. we do not have that on the iphone 10r but you can still charge it magsafe wirelessly but it just won't connect the magnetically if you know what i mean so you're going to be getting better water resistance on the iphone 12 as well they both are ip certified but you can go six

Meters waters here waters water here which is really cool so in terms of the outside that really pretty much covers it up there's not a lot to hit on here and there's not a lot to hate on either both these phones are very good still obviously the iphone 12 is the better phone when it comes down to the outside though in terms of software the iphone 10r and the iphone 12 are both running ios so it's not really a crazy huge comparison that needs to be done here really we just look at the chipsets

Inside in the year they came out the iphone 10r came out in 2018 and we can theoretically say because this one has the a12 chip this one has the a14 we can probably say that the iphone 12 is going to outlast the iphone 10r so in terms of software updates this thing could theoretically get like two years of more extra versions of software than the iphone 10r so that's a big deal if it's a big deal to you but either one of these phones you pick up now it's going to be perfectly fine

It's not like you're going to pick up the 10r and it's going to be out you know expire tomorrow same thing with the iphone 12 these phones are going to be lasting for many many more years and i would honestly say you're probably going to update your phone or sell this phone or break it before you even have to worry about when it's going to end in software so in terms of that that pretty much covers it up now let's go ahead and do a speed comparison between both these devices the iphone 10r has that apple a12 chip

Like i stated before with three gigabytes of ram inside of it with the iphone 12 has that apple a14 chip inside of it the a14 bionic if you want to get super super technical with four gigabytes of ram inside of it so let's go and see which one is the faster phone between both of these okay now that we're back let me go ahead and clear out all the apps in the background and i've said this before and i'll say it again i really need to start closing these apps out because i always forget to do so okay we're all cleared out let's go and

Open up the phone calls three two one and about the same on both in a ginormous difference let me go and turn with the brightness here and sliding out you can see they're about the same two in terms of animation we do safari and we can go ahead and load up some random web page apple 321 and this may have a lot to do with the network connection uh the iphone 12 is still ahead of it though just going through you can see about the same not a ginormous difference here either swiping out of here let's do the app stores three two

One and you can see the app store on the iphone 12 definitely looked way faster i don't know if there was a specific reason for that if you guys know let me know maybe it's because the phone's faster loading and everything seems about the same too but definitely when it came down to the iphone 12 was the faster one there as always i have a lot of these third party apps we can get into let's go into temple run two three two one

And you can see again the iphone 12 seems to be faster than the iphone 10r and we see this time and time again you know the newer iphone i'm expecting to be faster i want it to be faster and this is the case the iphone 10 are shortly behind it not a super crazy deal but definitely the iphone 12 was noticeably faster for sure gameplay should be about the same i think the attender glitched in the beginning but kind of caught up there so not a ginormous one in terms of gameplay

Dropbox three two one iphone 12 is faster iphone 10 are a little bit behind quizlet three two one iphone xr again is the faster one iphone 12 a little bit behind it netflix three two one again iphone 12 is the faster one iphone 10r behind it again snake vs blocks 321 does anybody even play this game anymore i feel like i'm the only one who still uses this game and iphone 12 was the faster one iphone 10r is a little bit slower

And gameplay i guess we'll see again is a basic game i feel like the iphone 12 glitched up there a little bit but in terms of gameplay they're both going to be around the same as well thank you three two one again iphone 12 is the faster one iphone 10 are definitely a little bit behind and more than just being you know which one is the faster one i'm sure the iphone 12 will be the fastest one every single time i'm very curious to see how much faster it is and there's a little there's a

Noticeable amount of difference for sure stack three two one it's not as you know low as something like the 11 pro to the iphone 12 that was there really wasn't too much of a difference with these ones i'm starting to see a pretty noticeable difference i still wouldn't even call it a huge difference or ground breaking or earth shattering i'll probably start seeing those when i do like an iphone 7 or iphone 6s but still this is like a pretty close one but there's some big differences for

Sure still fruit ninja three two one and the iphone 12 is faster iphone 10r noticeably behind it again it doesn't even seem like though that it's glitching up as more than i would say the iphone 12 it just seems like it's slower in my opinion facebook three two one iphone 12 faster iphone l10r a little bit slower twitter three two one twelve is faster ten hours slower instagram three two one with the older icon here i remember that

And of course i'm logged in i just should have known that paper io2 321 and the iphone 12 is faster iphone 10 are a little bit behind it getting into some gameplay let's see if there's a difference and you guys don't know what the struggle of playing two different games at the same time is and no i gameplay but still able to load faster on the 12. let's get into real racing three three two one now this is a big game and i may have to download if it glitches up and shows the downloading page then it's

Probably messed up okay so it's probably not gonna download or you know load it for some reason that's a really weird glitch i would probably assume that the iphone 12 is faster here so to kind of some of the speed comparison what i can tell you is there's a lot of differences for sure and i'm actually really really happy that the iphone 10r was slower i know it's kind of weird to say but i've been kind of seeing there haven't been too many crazy differences going from one phone to the other you know at least with the iphone 12

Series and i don't know why this phone restarted and this was able to keep it but in terms of the speed opening like app opening speeds i'll definitely say the iphone 10r is slower than the iphone 12. so if you have an iphone 10 or going to an iphone 12 you're going to be seeing at least faster app opening speeds and just faster speeds in general when you're playing games and everything like that now in terms of ram management they're both looking to be about the same

Still when you like the app closes and you go to reopen it it's still going to be faster on the iphone 12 but so far what i'm seeing they're both closing out at the same times which isn't really a good thing for the iphone 12. so hopefully apple fixes that in the future update but in terms of the speed comparison aspect faster iphone 12 ram management is about the same though so let's go and hit on the cameras now like i said before dual camera setup here 12 megapixel wide 12 megapixel

Ultrawide where you have a single 12 megapixel ultra wide angle lens on the iphone 10r it's not an ultra right it's a wide angle lens here now i've said this before and i'll say it again that the user interfaces and everything are going to be about the same you can do 4k at 60 on that back camera and i feel like in the back camera the iphone 12 is automatically going to win because first of all it's better it's a newer camera and you have that ultrawide sensor where this one only has one lens

But the front cameras i think are the bigger differences on the iphone 10r you can do 1080p at 60 frames per second but the iphone 12 you can do 4k at 60 on that front camera and that is really really cool no matter whoever is going to use it i personally use the front camera way more so me personally i would automatically rather choose an iphone 12 over an iphone 10r but the iphone 10 camera is still really good as well you know for really anything you're going to do with it and even though it's a single sensor it's

Still a really really good single sensor for the most part the software really adds a lot of enhancements to it now again if you're comparing this lens and this camera to something like a galaxy s20 or even a galaxy s10 you're going to see that these cameras just don't really stack up there's just not a lot of features built in you still have portrait mode and 4k at 60 but compared to the s20 you know it's it's in a different league and i can compare the iphone 12 in that same as that category two by comparing these two

Iphones to iphone these kind of fault in the same area so this camera quality i think is still great for the most part it's really not even that bad it's just a front camera i don't really like about these things now with the iphone 12 i can definitely tell you this is a step up in the right direction 4k 60 ultrawide sensor and you can do a lot with this camera lens as well and this is still a brand new camera and it still kind of falls in the same area as the iphone 10 are

There's no first of all 8k capability which the s20 already has i was expecting more from these iphones in that sense you can do 4k 60 on the front camera which automatically makes it better in my opinion than the iphone 10r but when you look at the competition and i'm not even including the iphone 10 or here we'll just let this one go away but when you look at the phones like the galaxy s20 and those type of phones it's really crazy what you know these other manufacturers are able to do and

The features they're able to put in into these type of cameras with apple they're i don't know what they're doing even the pro max has the same features in the camera department for the most part in terms of software as the iphone 12 and i really wish that wasn't the case i wish these phones just all as a whole had way more features built in but in terms of these two the iphone 10r has a great camera but the iphone 12 is the better one at the end of the day now in terms of the battery life this is actually

Maybe a surprise to you if you're picking up brand new phones at both these i truly do feel like the iphone 10r will have the better battery life but i will do a better like a bigger speed of battery comparison first of all it will be a full one this is just like a quick one of me kind of assuming it but you know both these battery sizes are within like a couple hundred million powers within each other and because the iphone 10r is a little bit less powerful it's you know has a lower resolution display its ips panel i'm going to assume that the iphone 10r

Has probably better battery life but the iphone 12 with that a14 chip maybe a little bit more optimized so we just never know at this point but to kind of sum up this video and say answer the question should you pick up the iphone 10r should you pick up the iphone 12 well i'll tell you like this if you're trying to save as much money as possible and getting the iphone 10r is the better way to go in my opinion there's really not anything crazy that the iphone 12 can do that the 10r cannot do

You know you can still do everything it's just the front camera i feel like on this phone is really its only downside but when it comes down to it the iphone 10r is a tremendous phone has tremendous build quality has software support for a very long time it's still pretty powerful like you saw with the iphone 12 it was behind it but it wasn't like crazy behind it wasn't like it was super unuseful the iphone 10r still has a lot of power within it ram management seems to be kind of about

The same on both phones so i don't know what's going on there it's still a powerful phone you have ios on it for a long time you have ios on it in general which is really cool and it's still a good looking phone you can buy brand new and it's much much cheaper than what the iphone 12 is but if you have all the money in the world and getting an iphone 12 is probably the better way to go if you're trying to get a phone now that'll last you for many many more years this is your phone this phone will last you for a very long time and that's not

To say that you know all new iphones are the best ones there are some areas where the iphone 12 doesn't really compete well with against the iphone 12 battery life is one example even if they're the same battery life it's kind of weird because the iphone 11 has better battery life in my opinion than the iphone 10r and this phone's battery life is worse than the iphone 11 so even if you don't want to pick up the iphone 12 to get the iphone 11 that's like in the middle of these two phones

That's not a bad idea either but the iphone 12 is one of the best iphones you can pick up right now it costs a little bit more obviously than the iphone 10r but if you have the money i would say go for it but if you're trying to get the best bang for your buck the iphone 10r may be the better way to go or even an iphone 11 the iphone 12 i think is a great phone it's a new design you know it looks good it feels good magsafe on it you know better display which is really cool

But i don't know how many people are really going to be super hyped up about that internally they're almost they're very similar there's a lot more similarities and there are differences in my opinion so that really pretty much covers it up for the most part if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment section below hit the like button now me so much but definitely hit that subscribe button every single subscriber that we get really discount so means so much if you
