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

by birtanpublished on October 30, 2020

Welcome back everyone as most of you guys know apple just went ahead and released their iphone 12 to everyone so i went ahead and got it okay it came in the iphone 10s has been out since 2018 this was they're pretty much their flagship of that year so i want to compare these two see which one is the better pickup i'm sure most of you guys will probably assume and i'll probably tell you the iphone 12 is the better phone it costs the 829 to pick up right now though with the iphone 10s does not cost that you can pick these things up on amazon

For less than 450 in a lot of different places so that's a pretty big price difference this one is isn't really half but it's almost like half and you can pick up both these in the links in the description you can get them from there and help support the channel at the same time now side by side you can kind of see that the iphone 12 really isn't that much crazier bigger or anything like that than the iphone 10s even though it has a bigger display the

Iphone 12 has a 6.1 inch display the 10s as that 5.8 inch display the biggest difference is probably the side of these phones there's less of a side i guess on the iphone 12s you can see the iphone 10s has that curved design on the left and right side and pretty much everywhere else on the phone the iphone 12 is pretty much flat which is really cool and i really do like that i'm sure you guys already know what the iphone 12 looks like there but because of that it kind of gives the illusion that there's less bezel around that

Display on the iphone 12 which is something that's really cool and i think that's pretty much what you're paying a premium for for the 12 as well as the newer chipset and better screen and all that that's still a pretty big deal on the iphone 12 in my opinion then on the iphone 10s now staring at the front screens the iphone 10s had that 5.8 inch panel like i said it was a super retina oled display it was 1125 by 24 36 and for the most part like i said before it was pretty good looking panel

Anything i did with it at all it did the job done they got it right like i didn't have any problems with this i think the iphone x display was really good too you have true tone on it and you actually had you know 3d touch on it which is something i kind of miss you have ios 14 on it which kind of i guess only takes some haptic feedback it looks like no i guess you can still force such but yeah i think ios 14 i think iphone 10s display and everything was great and true tone really helped it out a lot the iphone 12 though

I think kind of does take it to the next level i think you know with that 6.1 inch display it's an oled panel now and it's 1170 by 2532 so it technically is a higher resolution for the most part and you actually do have you know more pixels per inch on an iphone 12 than on the iphone 10s now another big thing in my opinion is because of the lack of bezel on it around i guess the lack of side bezel i would say you're getting kind of a narrower more device even though it has a bigger

Display even though you know it is pretty much a bigger device it's not as narrow as something else you know like some other display in my opinion so for sure when it comes down to the front i will definitely give the edge to the iphone 12 pro it just makes more sense maybe the iphone 10s is pretty much up there too but if you like a smaller phone get the 10s i don't think one is way better than the other one but that is something that i would probably note now in terms of thickness you can easily

Tell that the iphone 10s is you know it kind of feels a little bit thinner at first but i think that's mostly because the iphone 11 is the flat sided one so some people may prefer the curved one a big advantage of the curve is that it kind of feels a little bit thinner in the in your hand which is something i've always found devices like the galaxy s20s and oneplus 8t pros and phones like that they curve on the sides to make it feel thinner the iphone 12 just kind of you know it's

Flat so it may feel a little bit thicker so kind of keep that in mind and on the back we have dual camera setups on both and glass backs on both too and they're both kind of the same type of glass back this one has a skin on it but pretty much the same type of thing we have a mag safe right here on the iphone 12 where we don't have that on the iphone x but both of them support magsafe charging this one just charges faster so in terms of the bodies on the outside that really pretty much covers data for

The most part both of them have ip certification as well but the ip certification on the iphone 12 is a lot better people would probably technically say it's like three times better on the iphone 12 but if you get water on both it's gonna be fine but the iphone 12 will be able to handle it better so definitely keep that in mind for sure now in terms of the outside that pretty much covers it up in terms of software this is a pretty big difference you're probably going to

Be getting a longer software supported phone on the iphone 12 for the time being right now you know both of them are going to be lasted for a couple more years for sure the iphone 12 is going to be lasting longer than the iphone 10s like i stated if you get both these phones right now both of them are going to be supported for a couple years later and i think i just repeated myself and i said this before but with the iphone 10s if you get this phone now maybe it'll last you know up until like 2023 or something like that

You may want to get a phone a new phone then the iphone 12 will get expired at like 2025 maybe it'll get its last update there so that's kind of the time frame we're talking about if you need a phone for a couple years the tennis or the 12 will definitely do fine if you have all the money in the world getting the 12 will probably do better there though so in terms of software that pretty much covers it up now let's go ahead and do a little bit of a speed comparison between them

The iphone 10s has that apple a12 bionic chip hex core cpu with four gigabytes of ram on each of the models there with the iphone 11 on the other hand has that apple a14 bionic chip with four gigabytes of ram on each model so let's go and see which one is the faster phone between these two okay now that we're back let me go and clear all these apps in the background should only take two seconds now i have the iphone 12 on the right as you guys may be able to see i have the iphone 10s on the left so let's start loading these bad

Boys up let's do phone calls three two one and both were about the same not a big difference safari let's just load it up and both loaded up apple and a couple of different things on both scrolling through they both have a couple of different panels on them for sure but let me go and refresh these pages and as you can see they're about the same scrolling through they're about the same maybe i don't really think one is way better than the other one here

Music 321 and about the same here too this one does have to load up this one which kind of takes a while i don't know why app store 321 and probably the 12 was a little bit faster there as you guys saw the iphone 10s was still pretty much right behind it and the iphone 10s i think is doing a pretty good job for the most part scrolling speeds you can see d12 is pretty much doing better there now as usual i have a bunch of these third-party apps that we can go and get

Into we can do something like temple run two three two one and that probably be that the 12 is faster as you can see the 12 is noticeably faster so far the 10 has definitely taken its time for sure but definitely not a bad thing but again the tenants came out in 2018 i would be more surprised if the 12 was slower than the 10s and as you can see as expected the iphone 12 was faster than the iphone 10s getting into some gameplay i'm pretty sure we're going to be able to see that

The 12 and 10 is probably gonna be around the same here it's not a super intensive game here so let's let this one slide we can do bofa three two one and definitely the iphone 12 is faster 10s shortly behind it dropbox three two one 12 faster 10 that's behind it quizlet 3 2 1. again 12 is faster 10 is behind it we can do netflix 321 and i think the 12 was slightly faster but the tennis was right behind that one

Snake versus blocks three two one and you can see again the iphone 12 was the faster one and i'm seeing a recurring trend here which is really good this is what i love seeing for these type of devices i want the newer one to be faster maybe some people think i want it to be the opposite that's not the case at all we can do tank you three two one i want the new devices to be faster because i'm spending more money on them basically with the iphone 12 heroes faster iphone

10 is a little bit behind you know what i'll say is with the iphone 12 it's definitely holding its own i don't think it's a horrible device or anything like that you know the iphone 12 was doing perfectly fine stack 321 i was sometimes you know i've seen some cases where older phones are a little bit sometimes maybe faster than the newer ones and for this case with these batch of iphones it seems not to necessarily be the case i've been saying more times than not the newer ones being noticeably faster and with a phone like

The tennis even though it's not the predecessor it's the predecessor's predecessor and it's really cool to see the differences here we do fruit ninja three two one hopefully we don't have a pop-up here which i feel like we probably are i guess not and the 12 was definitely faster there the iphone 10s was noticeably behind it for sure facebook three two one it's a pretty basic app you know 12 was able to load into it twitter three two one pretty basic one two we're

Already into it let's do instagram three two one about the same there too for sure paper io two three two one and the twelve was faster followed by the iphone 10s i almost called out the iphone 11 and you can see they're about the same here too not a really big gaming difference maybe the 12 is a little bit smoother there but i'll let you guys kind of be the judge in this case and we can end it off with real racing

Three three two one we may have to download it on the iphone x if that's the case then i'll probably still give the edge to the iphone 12 a little bit of a hiccup right there for the tennis but i guess we'll be able to see what happens very shortly the iphone 12 is the faster one as you guys can see the iphone x is still loading which there's nothing wrong with that you know it's a older device it's expected but well i'll probably just say the iphone 12 is the faster one i don't know if i want to wait this long

For this just to even get into the downloading panel so that one we'll just kind of let's we'll just say in terms of speed the iphone 12 is definitely the faster one that's for sure and if you're going from an iphone 10s to an iphone 12 you're definitely going to see an improvement in the speed department for sure in terms of ram management so ram management should theoretically be better on a phone like this and so far that's kind of what i'm seeing i haven't really seen

Either phone hiccup at all which is kind of what i'm looking for so that's a really really very important thing anytime i see a device like this and right there was it just me or did the iphone 12 actually hiccup and i actually take that back you have the same amount of ram on both these devices i thought this was the iphone 12 pro for some reason you have the same amount of ram on both these devices and i just saw that the iphone 12 actually restarted there which was very

Weird and i want to see if i can replicate that i don't know if i'm going to be able to but i'm going to try one more time and if it does then we're going to have a huge problem okay both look about the same let's go into the next one okay this one restarted so maybe it was just a one-time thing i think more times than not the iphone 12 is probably the better one i will do a full speed comparison at some point as you can see the iphone 10 is restarted too so maybe it was just

That one out but that pretty much covers it up in the speed comparison let's go and do a camera comparison between them and as they did before this is just a quick one i'll probably do a full one very soon but you have 12 megapixel cameras on both you have an ultra wide sensor on the iphone 12 though where you have a single telephoto lens on the iphone 10s so you have an ultra wide sensor telephoto lens both wide angle lenses here all 12 megapixel sensors on both lenses

Now looking at the uis on both you can see that they look kind of the same and you're obviously able to see that there's already a little bit of difference between them this color kind of looks a little bit brighter a little bit more warmer the iphone 10s looks a little bit different not a bad thing or a good thing just kind of something i noted and i think in terms of both they both have the same features portrait mode video all that stuff you have 4k at 60 on both phones which is really nice

But i think all the front cameras is where you're going to see a bigger difference you can do 1080p at 60 on the front camera of the iphone 10s but you can do 4k at 60 on the iphone 12 which is really cool so the iphone 10s i've pretty much been saying for a very long time has had a pretty good camera i think the iphone 7r had a really good camera too and this one is pretty much no different it'll pretty much get you from point a to point b it'll be able to handle everything you throw at it it's definitely not the perfect camera in the

World but for a majority of people out there for whatever photos you're going to take it's going to be able to handle it this one does have a telephoto lens though which some people may not like i personally am okay with it but i like having an ultra white sensor more i feel like i use that more than i have a telephoto i mean i like having both to be honest but if it had to be one or the other maybe the ultra white sensor would be the better way to go but the quality is still gray here like

I said i think the bigger difference comes in the front camera i use my front camera way more than the back camera the 12 has the 4k at 60 this one has 1080p at 60 so pretty big difference i would say and the iphone 12 camera like i said i'll be doing a full camera comparison but i think you know it probably has the better camera quality too but like i said i think that front camera is where it's definitely going to be able to be seeing the more differences this thing with its you know single camera setup on the front

4k it's 60 on this camera only 1080p at 60 on here like i said before so it is what it is but i'll let you guys kind of be the judge there i'll drop a full comparison very very soon hopefully in the next couple of days or weeks but i guess we'll see what happens you know i have a ton of videos to do but whenever it happens you know i could probably just tell you when to synopsize this camera department the iphone 12 is probably the better way to go when it comes down to in terms of the camera so in terms of camera that pretty much covers it up

Now ending it off with the battery life this is an area where you know i think going from this device to this device you're probably going to get better battery life but going from the predecessor of the iphone 12 which is the iphone 11 to this battery life was a downgrade on the iphone 10s you had a 26 58 million power battery here the iphone 12 had a 28 15 millibar battery here so between both you're getting probably gonna get better battery life here but i still find it very weird that

Apple decrease the battery size on this device just like how they did on the 10s going from the iphone 10 the 10s had a smaller battery life the same thing with the 11 to the 12. so you're going to have better battery life on the iphone 12 which is great but the 10s had never really had amazing battery life it was pretty average from the day it was released too so to kind of sum up this video and to answer the question should you pick up the iphone 10s did you pick up the 12 should you upgrade from the tennis to the 12.

What i will tell you though is that with the iphone 10s i think it's a great phone for the most part and if you already made it last this long it's perfectly fine i feel like the only times the iphone tennis kind of falls flat on its face is probably around the battery life department and maybe in terms of the performance but the performance really wasn't that bad i don't even have a problem with it some people may say the size you may be a little bit smaller than you so you want to go for the 12

You know by all means go for it but i think that some of the pros for the iphone 12 are the same things for the pros the iphone you know 10s and vice versa great software on this phone great build quality pretty good camera still it's almost half the price as the iphone 12 which is a very important thing to note that is extremely extremely important whether you know you want to upgrade or not that's very good to know that this phone doesn't cost as much as the iphone 12.

The screen is very good on this phone the battery life is okay you still have ip certification everything so for sure the iphone 10s i think is a tremendous phone still and i would still say the iphone 12 though is the better phone but it's better because you know it's the newest one and it's more expensive too it's not like it's the same price this thing is over 800 this thing is under 450 and when you phrase it like that this one seems like the better phone but not as better as you may think

It has a great camera i think it's better than the iphone 10s better battery life by a little bit you know maybe better build quality if you're into this kind of like side thing which i kind of like a little bit you have better ip certification better performance and a better looking screen quite possibly but again i think for a majority of people if you already have an iphone 10s going to the iphone 12 if you don't already have an upgrade or if you have all the money in the world to spend then obviously go for the iphone 12

But i think for the average person out there sticking with an iphone 7s or even getting an iphone 10s is really not that bad of an idea like i think it's actually not a bad idea at all if you like the iphone 12 go for it if you already have an iphone 10s i would recommend keeping it but if you have the money go for the iphone 12 i think it's a worthwhile upgrade but i would definitely tell you if you're getting the iphone 12 you might as well just spend a little bit more money and get an iphone 12 pro

You're getting a better you know just phone overall for a little bit more expensive but it's probably going to last you long you're probably going to get a better experience from that phone than you are going to get from an iphone 12 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 if you want to pick up either these ones like i said links are down in the description if you guys enjoy the video definitely
