iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12 Comparison

iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12: what are the design differences?

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 Pro have modern, elegant designs, but the iPhone 11 Pro looks more premium. This is mainly due to its stainless steel frame, whereas the iPhone 12 has an aluminium frame. The iPhone 12 also makes a return to angular edges, while the iPhone 11 Pro keeps rounded edges. The iPhone 12 supports wireless charging with MagSafe. The iPhone 11 Pro is smaller, making it more suitable for smaller hands and pockets. However, some similaries are that both models unlock with Face ID, and neither has a mini-jack, which has been absent since the iPhone 7 series.

iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12: which iPhone has the better screen?

The screens of the iPhone 12 and 11 Pro are very similar. They both have a resolution higher than Full HD, plus Super Retina XDR OLED technology with Dolby Vision. Both allow a wide range of colours to be displayed and have True Tone. The iPhone 11 Pro has better sunlight readability, but the iPhone 12 offers a wider and more nuanced range of colours. Both models have excellent displays, so you don't lose out in this department between the two phones.

iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12: which is more powerful

Performance is where the iPhone 12 shines. Its processor, the Apple A14 Bionic, is a year newer thus slightly faster and smoother. Plus the iPhone 12 will be better positioned to receive Apple's updates and maintain performance as the years go by. The iPhone 12 is also 5G compatible, unlike the iPhone 11 Pro. 

iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12: which one takes better pictures?

The iPhone 11 Pro has a third sensor, the telephoto sensor, which allows 2X optical zoom without any loss in quality. The iPhone 12 has only the wide angle and the ultra wide angle. The front sensor is the same on both: 12 Mpx with a 3D SL sensor to calculate Depth and to activate facial recognition. The iPhone 12 does have a slight advantage, as it captures more light. This makes it suitable for taking low-light shots.

iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 12: which has better battery life?

The iPhone 12 has a larger screen, but the battery capacity is smaller. This doesn't mean that the iPhone 12 is less self-sufficient, because the Apple A14 Bionic is more efficient. However, 5G tends to decrease the battery life, so we recommend turning it off if you want it to last longer. Wireless charging is faster on the iPhone 12 when compared.

What's the price difference between iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 12?

When it was released, the iPhone 11 Pro was priced at £1,049, as it was part of the high-end range, the equivalent of the iPhone 12 Pro in 2020. The iPhone 12, on the other hand, was sold new for £799. Since the iPhone 11 Pro is a year older than the iPhone 12, its price has had time to drop and you can find it for as low as £314 on Back Market now. The iPhone 12 is also cheap and available for £385 on Back Market currently.
