Apple iPhone 12 at Media Markt
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are part of Apple’s latest generation of smartphones, offering OLED displays, 5G connectivity, the A14 chip for better performance, improved cameras, and MagSafe, all in a new, squared-off design.
While the iPhone 12 seems to be the best all-round iPhone option currently available, users who need pro-level camera features or want a more premium design should opt for the $999 iPhone 12 Pro. Similarly, for the largest and most fully-featured iPhone, there is the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max, which dwarfs the iPhone 12 by over half an inch and starts at $1,099.
On the other hand, if price is your main concern, the iPhone 11 or iPhone XR may be more appropriate than the $799 iPhone 12, featuring the same 6.1-inch display size for as little as $499. There are some tradeoffs with the iPhone 11 or iPhone XR however, such as the LCD display and use of an older chipset.
Likewise, if you are looking for a more inexpensive alternative to the $699 iPhone 12 mini that still prioritizes one-handed use and pocketability, then the $399 iPhone SE may the best option.
