It is must have for the hardcore MR tech nerds who need to have a reason to update every year. And in a minute minority, there are those with certain eye conditions that can see a benefit.I am really curious...120h hz..how is this 120 hz so important ??? What for, can anyone please explain...
As much as 120mhz is subjective as being "killer" or "necessary".
Cell service has never been anything but subjective and location dependent. And as much as where I live, I won't see much of the benefits of 5G (or so I believe), when I travel into those areas that support mmwave or even plain old 5g, I would expect to see a better overall performance than 4G. To me, in my subjective opinion, that is worth more than 120mhz screens. (And yeah, hope Apple includes 120mhz screens in the future as well as touch id in the power button and other features)
We'll have to see how see how much of a battery hit 5G will cause. There should be an option to fully switch it off and people can then compare how much difference that makes. There is some balancing in that currently with limited 5G rollout, the benefits of it are equally limited but so will be its impact on battery life if it really is only used occasionally (plus the phone switches to 4G unless something requires higher bandwidth). Then in a year or two, 5G will bring more benefits, which to some degree will coincide with a larger impact on battery life.I just don't get the decision behind this 5G vs 120hz refresh rate choice. I can notice a difference between a 60hz panel and 120hz panel (iPad Pro, S20, Note 20, etc. etc.), so it is just as real as 5G (which isn't actually real in 2020). So Apple would go for a tech (5G) which is a huge battery drainer, very limited availability and use case instead of a variable refresh rate 120hz panel which is also a battery drainer but at least available most of the time.
Correct me if I'm wrong, I thought there was ability to completely turn off 5G and stay on LTE.We'll have to see how see how much of a battery hit 5G will cause.

Regardless, if the iPhone 12 didn't have 5G, plenty of people (maybe even mainly outside the Apple world) would have complained audibly. Much fewer people are complaining about the lack of 120 Hz in comparison.
Ooh how dare you use common sense and logic when there are those out there desperate to to be outraged and in a time of unprecedented global disruption. Dragged kicking and screaming to reality , you’ll rot in hell for this 😂It’s really not. Unless your one joy in life is watching your phone scroll through menus slightly smoother. Which, if that’s the case, you need to reevaluate yourself. Media is all 24/30/60 FPS, games might take advantage of it but battery life will really suffer.
Main reason it matters on the iPad is for pencil latency. For example, your pencil will be “faster” than your display on the new air, which results in a delay between writing and seeing the motion, albeit a very small one.
Just another one of those things for people to whine about since they can’t find any other reason to dislike the device.
I pretty much said as much ("There should be an option to fully switch it off."). Not least because on my iPhone 11, I do have the option to switch off 4G.
But it certainly does not make or break this phone. Calling a phone "pro" is silly anyways (but I get it). Not having some mythically awesome frame refresh rate doesn't make the phone any less usable for those who use it.It's probably not important to most people, but for fast moving action, it will likely provide a smoother display of such on-screen elements.
Most movies are recorded at 24FPS. 24--->60fps causes judder on a 60FPS screen whilst 120FPS is divided easily by 24FPS.Wouldn't most videos i.e. movies still display at 60fps as that is the framerate of their release?
Ha. Can you imagine the fallout if Apple went another cycle without 5G? You though the anti-notch movement was boisterous?Kind of... 5G is not as widely spread yet and Apple’s own 5G implementation makes it useless (not functioning) with dual-SIM iPhones. They could have easily waited for another year, IMO.
