Today we’re going to durability test the iPhone 12 Pro and its ceramic shield covered front screen. You might have noticed that the box is a little bit smaller this year. You know how Apple has slowly been removing things with each new product launch first was the headphone jack tried HDMI on their laptops, and now it’s the charging brick itself that’s gone. It’s always exciting to find out what’s going to decide. Next, Apple keeps you on your toes. Honestly, though, it’s probably a good thing. Their five-watt inbox charger was the slowest charger of any phone anywhere. There’s no reason not to upgrade to the faster charging anchor nano, which costs less while still charging three times faster. Oh well, stay the same size as the old brick; thanks to anchor for sponsoring this video, iPhone users will now get to experience the fast charging that androids have had for years.
I’ll leave a link down in the video description that’ll give you a 10% discount off the anchor nano because you know if Apple is your anchor for sure will. Now it’s time for the durability test. Let’s get started. I think it’s a bit says that Apple got rid of the free inbox charger when they came out with the new type of magnetic charging, which conveniently cost four-oh. By the way, I’m sure it’s all just a coincidence, though. Just like how the headphone jack disappeared at the same time, the wireless air pods came out, you know, totally normal behavior. Inside a circular magnetic attachment is a group of coiled wires that transfer power to the other set of coiled cables inside the phone. Well, let’s see what those look like for real Z’s when we open them up to the teardown video. But while we’re here on the outside, we can see where the magnets are located with some metal shavings. The attractions form a perfect circle around the outside of the copper coils trial. Thumbs up for that. I think it’s cold, even if you cannot keep your credit card and phone in the same pocket anymore.
It’s probably a good idea in general, though, to keep shavings away from your phone. If you remember, the earpiece and loudspeaker are both made with magnets, so if any small shavings get sucked out of the phone, we can tear the speakers to shreds. I’m sure the IP six-eight waterproofing will help keep the dust and shavings out, but still better safe than sorry. Speaking of being safe rather than sorry. Try Apple has stepped up their phone design quite a bit this year with a lot of focus on the screen. Apple says their new ceramic is a step beyond the glass, but it’s also essential to listen closely to their carefully structured buzzword filled sentences. Apple said they’ve included nano-ceramic crystals within the glass matrix trial medically improved toughness. And yeah, they might have found a new way of forming glass to make it more challenging, but those new crystals are still within a glass matrix, which means it’s still glass, no matter how many other words the end of the sentence.
And if the glass is still glass, you know the rest. Apple doesn’t mention much resistance, drop protection, and toughness. They also use the phrase, along with our new design, it makes the iPhone more challenging than ever. So it’s not just the new glass. I think a large part of that four times more drop resistance comes from the design with the glass flush sitting just inside the frame’s surface. A piece of glass has six files, front, back end all four edges.
And with five of those six sides protected by this drop right in a way that most smartphones are not built. It makes this iPhone 12 Pro more shatter-resistant, so I believe apples claim the glass is four times tougher. But I think the protective design has more to do with it than the buzzwords do. I’ve scratched a hundred rounds of phones in this same way, and Apple ceramic shield is still scoring at a level six with deeper grooves at a level seven. It might just be my imagination, but it does look like the level six scratches are a tad more fell, but they’re still there. The ceramic shield is not the product that will bring us to the next level of most hard drives. One thing that can always be certain, though, is that as Apple removes stuff from the box, the high price will forever remain the same.
The only way to keep your screen and scratch-free and resale value high, as with the screen protector. Try I’ve installed thousands of screen protectors from my pre-YouTube phone repair days, and it only takes a few seconds. The biggest obstacle is the dust underneath the glass. But there’s an alcohol wipe and a dust sticker in the box to help mitigate the screen protectors held in place by a thin layer of nano adhesive, so there’s no residue left on the glass when it’s ever removed. And since the iPhone 12 Pro displays a flat-screen protector, it looks like it was meant to be there. Just like you wear safety glasses to protect your eyes and a mask to protect your lungs, a screen protector is a cheap way to avoid a lot of future regrets. I’ll leave a link for D brand screen protectors down in the video description. Plus, these are your regular plastic rubbery screen protectors either. It’s an additional layer of protective tempered glass. Try no drinks, glass, and glass can. It’s much easier to replace a $10 screen protector than replace a $270 display.
I’ll leave that link in there just trial. If I’m sincere, I do have to say that the iPhone 12 Pro is one of the cleanest looking and best trial ones that I’ve held in a long time. And the frame is surprisingly hard to scratch. The row’s size is made from stainless steel, and since my razor blade is also made from stainless steel, they’re having a hard time damaging each other the paint is still going to scratch off. Most phones are usually made from softer aluminum. Aluminum is like a three or four on a low scale; stainless steel at most five is quite a bit more resilient. It’s just the paint that’s not a colored version of the iPhone that will hide this kind of damage the best. There is no expandable memory; of course, there never was. The manga back and be a handy SIM card removal tool holder.
And then, of course, at the bottom, we still have our lightning port. I’m also a big fan of the textured glass back here. You can hear the difference between my razor. When it goes from the rough plastic texture to the smooth glass on the Apple logo, the textured glass can act like sandpaper and other objects. Since glass is a rigid material, softer items like this paper leave marks behind on the glass, but the patterns aren’t permanent. It’s just dust caught on the rough surface and can be rubbed away. The top camera bump is relatively reasonable this year, when compared to Samsung’s atrocities, the bottom lens is a. megapixel two-times optical zoom telephoto. And then we have the 12 megapixels ultra-wide in the center, and the primary 12-megapixel sensor up top, and each camera lens is again covered with its own sound crystal lens cover.
It’s still getting marks levels six and seven, but you already know how I feel about that. The iPhone 12 Pro screen is a 6.1-inch super retina XDR display, meaning it’s OLED and has a slightly higher resolution than 1080 p. A cool thing, though, is that even after 30 seconds from the heat of my lab, the pixels on the OLED are still on phase with zero damage; other phones start to turn white and not recover. Now I’m no materials expert, but ceramic is a slower conductor of heat, meaning that it doesn’t transfer through it as easy. So Apple’s new screen material may be keeping the heat away from the pixels. Try doesn’t mean quite a whole lot as far as lighters go. Still, it does add a little validity to the new ceramic crystal material claim that Apple is making the oleophobic coating is evaporated, though, so don’t try the burn test on your phone.
What about the bend test. I mean, try easy to guess. But with the more solid stainless steel frame and recessed glass on both sides keeping the box rigid, the iPhone 12 Pro is a non-flexing tank of a cell phone, and I’m impressed, no kinks or cracks of any kind in the frame. Apple is and always has been premium and expensive, but lately, the materials have started to match the price tag a bit better. I use my last phone for years, and they’ve only had my current phone for about a year. So I’m not ready to upgrade just yet, try, maybe someday I’ll try out the iPhone again, but I’ll wait till next year’s iPhone 13 Pro max Ultra Plus six g no screen edition before I make up my mind.
