iPhone 12 at Rs 26,900: Should You Consider this Deal?

Although the iPhone 12 was launched back in 2020, this is one of the best smartphone deals to consider. Why? You get various features that are better than a mid-range Android phone available at this price. The iPhone 12 comes with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display which is identical to that present on the iPhone 13 and 14.

The A14 Bionic chip on the iPhone 12 is one generation old compared to the iPhone 13 and 14 but that doesn’t change the fact that it is still a powerful processor that can handle multitasking and gaming well.

The camera configurations on the iPhone 12, 13, and 14 are identical. They all sport a 12MP main and a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens on the rear. For selfies and video calls, all three phone use a 12MP front shooter. The cinematic mode and autofocus mode in selfies are missing on the iPhone 12 but still, the camera can click excellent shots.

The battery life, however, on the iPhone 12 is not good compared to the new iPhones and you may have to compromise on that.

Apple will offer software support for the device until 2027, which is great. In addition, the device has received a 5G update already and supports all 5G bands in India.

So, if you are thinking about whether you should consider this deal or not? Our suggestion would be to pick this deal before it ends.
