Upgraded from iPhone 6 to this 12. Very happy with much improved performance vs. the iPhone 6. The newer IOS takes a little getting used to but easy to adapt to. Glad to be on the newest IOS to be able to take advantage of the latest features. All apps/data were transferred from old iPhone to this phone in the Best Buy store at the time of purchase and took under 1 hour. Unfortunately, not all the contacts came across automatically, so that has required some extra work. Battery life much improved over older iPhone.
So much faster than my 2016 SE. The transfer of data had gotten so much better, even transferring all of my passwords and app icons to the same exact place they were. I only wish my iTunes music I imported from CDs was there too. I had a couple issues with CarPlay but I think I have those worked out, so I’m happy. Also, sometimes the transfer from 5G to other will cause a dropped call, but generally it’s been good. Should be for this much money.

What I thought. Upgrading to a new iPhone. Considered mini but seemed too small for aging eyes. Wished it had a finger print sensor as when I check the phone at night the face recognition does not work. Also if wearing a mask it does my work either which make apple/google pay not easy and you have to enter your passcode. Otherwise transfer from old phone was easy and I did it myself.
Other than not having headphone jack, I haven’t found anything I did not like about this phone yet. The way some things in it function are definitely an adjustment and that has made both Google search and YouTube my new best friends. The photos are amazing and I love how it doesn’t let calls or notifications come through while I’m resting. Thanks to that I can FINALLY get a good night’s sleep.
If you have a non-Bluetooth car, like me, you’ll definitely need to buy a dual audio splitter in order to run the phone through your car’s audio system. Either that or use Bluetooth headphones. But overall I love this phone!
Coming from a Samsung to an iPhone has been a real learning experience. But the qualify of the photos is outstanding. I also like the size of the phone. So far, the battery functionality has been okay but it's really dependent on how much I'm using it. My big issue is figuring out how to do things. Thank goodness for Google and YouTube! I'll likely update this review later once I learn more on how to use the phone.
I love iphones. I don't love the fact that my previous iphone died (green screen of death.... didn't know they'd do that) on me and I had to get a new phone ASAP. I'm sad this happened so close to the release of a newer version. Those are the reasons I took off 1 star.
Best Buy was great. I needed another phone immediately. I was able to get this one, in stock, at my local Best Buy. I had already shopped around and this was the best price for this phone and same day pickup.
