And that example proves the difference between the two cameras - in the best possible lighting conditions.
This is what the average person cares about - the newer cameras take much better pictures under a variety of conditions. If you go zooming in looking at the pixels, yes, you are certain to find flaws.
FWIW, the difference between the two images I posted above was all the more obvious when I viewed them on my 27" iMac.
The swipe to open with Face Id is so you can see and read the notifications on your lock screen. Lock screen notifications would be completely useless if every time you looked at your phone it opened to the homepage.
It has a crappy tiny camera sensor - it’ll be way better than the 6s but isn’t ever going to touch the low light capability at high ISO that a DSLR can. And you don’t need to be zooming in 100% - even big prints will look fine
you just need more time with it - indoor is pretty low light and images can look dull. Take some different types and get used to it for a few days
I know not sure where he’s coming from but opening apps is faster. My xs max is faster than my mom iPhone se (same processor as the 6s) so no way the 12 isn’t noticeable.B- troll effort.
The difference is noticeable for 5 or 6 year difference regardless of phone brand.
It was a Best Seller book about how to deal with change.What does this mean 😂
I don't even say anything about performance. The 6s has an obvious shortcoming, which is battery life. Since you don't seem to have an issue with that, that's an indication of your typical usage. So instead of being defensive, just return the 12 and save some money, which what I was recommending you to do. I mean what do you expect people to say, to convince you to keep a phone you're not happy with?May I ask you what is heavy use? I check my emails, check news, browse some sites, take photographs, use photography apps and more every day. My phone is not glued to my hand and I try to keep phone in my pocket as much as possible. Maybe heavy use is constant FB/Insta scrolling?
BTW what is actually the "heavy" use where you take the crap out of your phones performance like the A14 which is performance monster?
Being disappointed in the camera is clearly subjective. My son has a 6s+ and we compared shots to my xs max. Less of a difference in bright daylight, much more of a difference in lower light shots. From what I have seen the 12 is a nice upgrade from the xs.I am genuinely surprised by some of the rather hostile responses to your post and I fully understand how you are disappointed by the performance of the camera. After all Apple set expectations quite high in their presentation.
What are those serious shortcomings. Do you have legitimate sample that show these serious shortcomings?Compared to other flagship phones iPhone 12 pro is still using very small 1/2.55 and 1/3.4 sensors and Apple tries to compensate the small size with computational photography. While it works great for example for HDR in daylight it has some serious shortcomings at night.
Isn't that how "night mode" works on every phone that supports this type of photography?As it relies on multiple exposures basically it means that you either need to have a very steady hands or tripod and still subjects. Any movement especially in night mode will make the images blurry.
Since you have dslr you might be aware of Lightroom mobile. Its free to use and you can shoot raw with it and adjust the shutter speed to your liking which might help to catch your kids in motion. Naturally you have to increase iso speed at the same time but at least you have full control of the settings.
I basically always shoot with Lightroom unless I need HDR which the standard camera app does quite well. Hopefully coming ProRaw will be added to Lightroom as well.
Yes, there is a difference, it doesn't mean Apple missed anything. While I get we would like our phones to work the way we want, it's not always possible to have 100% of the way a phone works, working to our 100% specifications. My wife had the same comments going from a 7 to an xr and within 10 minutes those comments disappeared.My girlfriend got the 12 yesterday coming from a 7 plus. She hasn’t used the modern iPhones so I was interested to see her first reactions.
Now she is not a techie so her excitement was basically just the prospect of getting the new phone. Within 5 minutes her first comment was something like please change the battery icon to percentage on the home screen. I told her you can’t do that without swiping down. It goes to show that Apple still misses some basics with user experience. That, and the swipe up function to log in with Face ID (yes I know it’s for notifications but you could easily change this in the OS such that you only have to swipe up when notifications are present). These are little things obviously but they do make an impact on the way we interact with our devices.
I have an xs max and am fighting the upgrade urge, although I will probably lose.My thoughts (I have an xs) are that these are beautiful, powerful phones. The camera and especially night mode is so much better than even my two year old phone. But the rest is relatively the same and I am not compelled to upgrade for another year or two. Wait enough time and everything becomes a more significant and meaningful update.
Please, tell what the difference un performance between 6s and 8 plus is. Do you mean Safari opens 0,0007 second faster? Photos appear on the screen 1 second faster. 8 Plus boots 1 second faster. Give real meaning to significant gains. Cause if the gains are in the range of 1 second, can you call that honestly significant. Are you such in a hurry? But if you're a gamer, which I'm not, I can understand.I have a 6s at home and I’m using an 8 plus (12 getting delivered today). The difference in performance between my 6s and 8 plus is so significant I can’t help but think that you’re trolling a little
You nailed it and that's why I'm sticking to my 6s. And BTW, I'm a semi-professional photographer. I don't shoot, I do photography whatever the subject. Then I use my DSLR. I find a bit strange that all the conversations about iPhone or any other phones for that matter, is revolving around photography. As if an iPhone is not a phone anymore. Then it should be renamed. I wonder if owners still make calls with their 1200$ toy. To me, there are no more iPhone, there are expensive gadgets to take pictures in the dark and call this the summum of photo technology. But I still want to place a call and don't hear hiss and "noise on the line" and cut conversations. Am I such an old bastard? Such a boomer? Such a dinosaur? Maybe after all.You can tell that someone who is still satisfied with a 6s today means that the person's usage of the phone is fairly light. The 6s has the smallest battery ever on an iPhone from the iPhone 6 onwards. Most people on it complained about the battery life. Clearly the OP can be served better by sticking with the 6s or getting the 2020 SE and save some money. None of the 12 features will wow him/her.
