Recently Apple has presented their new products – iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro. However, many users are unhappy about the new line of the company, though they even got the new A14 Bionic core inside all of their models.
The problem is Apple decided to decrease the battery capacity of all 12 series devices, but according to the information given on the official website, the number of working hours didn’t change in comparison with iPhone 11 series. Unfortunately, when the situation comes to 3D-gaming sessions, the issue has become even more perceptible.
According to the Phone Arena 3D Gaming Battery Test results, iPhone 11 can be playable 2,5 times longer than the new flagman of the Apple company, where iPhone 11 can stay out of charge for more than 7,5 hours and iPhone 12 can be used for only 3 hours. This fact neglects the user experience of using A14 Bionic, to the side of its previous version. What is the most striking, that iPhone 11 can handle even more time without charging, than its higher brother iPhone 11 Pro.
However, many mobile gamers search for playing on non-iOS phones, as Android-powered phones give them more opportunities and better gaming experience. For example, if you look at the top segment of Android phones, you will be highly interested in using Xiaomi Mi10 Pro, that can handle around 10 hours of gaming, and Samsung Galaxy S20 (and it’s FE version), with more than 8 hours no-charging gaming, as these phones are completed with powerful 8-core processors (Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 for Xiaomi and Exynos 990 for Samsung).
Concerning regular users, iPhone 12 Pro, surprisingly, is on the top of the PhoneArena Browsing Battery test, but still stays lower than Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro and Google Pixel 5.
Generally speaking, I would not recommend buying iPhone 12 series for those, who use their phone mostly for playing games, but for those, who prefer style over high performance it will really be a great choice!
