IT’S 2022, IS IT STILL WORTH BUYING AN IPHONE 12 IN KUWAIT?
Let’s find out!
The iPhone 12 came out in October of 2020 bringing major improvements to the more budget-oriented side of the iPhone line.
The iPhone 12 was the successor to the iPhone 11 but brought the experience on the more budget phone a lot closer to the pro experience with the vibrant gorgeous OLED screen and just generally more sleek design, we also got the iPhone 12 mini the smallest phone apple had made since the iPhone SC in 2016.
In addition, of course, there was that gorgeous blue color you cannot beat that the iPhone 12 truly was the complete package offering fantastic flagship-level features at a reasonable price tag, at least relative to how expensive the 12 pro could get.
I used the phone for the whole year until the iPhone 13 pro came out having nothing but good things to say about the display, the performance, the camera quality, and the battery life.
The iPhone 12 is, in my opinion, one of the most solid iPhones Apple has ever made and that’s a bold statement that being said despite all the good do not buy the iPhone 12 in 2022 as it is no longer worth the price Apple is currently selling it for. So in this review let’s talk about why exactly that is and why I still very much like the iPhone 12.
My last review on the iPhone 12 was back when it came out so I think we’re long overdue for a revisit. I bought it when it launched and used it for a full year until the iPhone 13 pro was released at which point I made the switch.
I loved my iPhone 12, it was a very straightforward, reliable, and premium experience which is exactly what I want from a smartphone. It came with all the modern commodities with a nice display, a great camera, fast performance, and more than decent battery life.
1. WORTH THE PRICE AT WHICH THE IPHONE 12 IS ON SALE RIGHT NOW IN KUWAIT?
I’ll of course be looking at all the typical review points of the phone a little later on, but for now, we do need to talk about value the iPhone 12 in 2022 is no longer worth the money and it’s not because it’s by any means a bad phone it’s still great the problem is that the value factor is not there and turning to apple’s website we can quickly find out why exactly that is with the launch of the new iPhones in late 2021.
Apple reduced the price of the iPhone 12 at 128 gigabytes to 230kwd from 290kwdand then the 12 mini from 275kwd to 230 on paper sixty Kuwaiti dinar reduction doesn’t sound so bad and might even be worth it but the all-new iPhone 13 or 13 mini is much more worth it by a long shot. Check the iPhone 12 price in Kuwait above.
It replaced the iPhone 12’s old price point starting with 128 gigabytes for the standard iPhone 13, so for a 35 KD more you get a year newer device with double the system storage.
If you’d like you can upgrade the iPhone 12 to 256 gigs when you’re buying it and doing so brings your price only a little less than the same amount of storage in the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 hasn’t necessarily been improved by a huge margin.
But it is still a full year newer. It brings a slightly smaller notch, a newer chipset, and quite a bit better battery life. It’s not worth saving only a hundred dollars for an iPhone 12 over the 13 and it’s quite confusing to me why apple lined up their prices like this.
Of course, these prices are the ones when you buy straight up unlocked from apple, and going through a carrier with a plan of some sorts will likely change things significantly if you find a deal for the iPhone 12.
I mean go for it, it’s a fantastic device and one that was not for the 13 I’d still be recommending wholeheartedly. It’s a big jump over the iPhone 11 which is still a great phone but is missing the much better-OLED panel that gives true blacks vibrant colors and a higher resolution.
In terms of cost per performance, the price of the iPhone 12 in Kuwait is not justified, compared to iPhone 13.
2. iPhone 12 vs iPhone 12 mini in the year 2022
I’ll be referring to the iPhone 12 and 12 mini simply as just the iPhone 12 as they’re completely identical besides the fact that the 12 mini is well mini.
Practically speaking it doesn’t make much difference beyond the screen size though I’d expect battery life to be a bit worse and the phone’s also a similarly priced device in Kuwait so don’t get the mini just to save some money the phone is right about the same size as that old iPhone 5 5s and so on just with the edge to edge display and that’s simply going to be too small for I think most smartphone users these days. Most people are just accustomed to the larger screens but if you are someone who enjoys small phones by all means go for it and your wallet will feel a bit better about it too.
So backing up a little and talking about the iPhone 12 and what it brought over the iPhone 11 we got two major changes there was the design and then there was something else you might remember from apple’s event it was very subtle they barely mentioned it and that was 5g networking
I am kidding, they said that word like 50 times. Yeah, the iPhone 12 has 5g networking something that not everyone can use yet but depending on your carrier and location 5g can give you access to significantly faster internet speeds than LTE for me it’s never been much of a big selling point.
Even once I switch to a carrier that has 5g in my area and could use it apple loves talking about it and I know some people want 5g so it’s certainly worth mentioning the change. I was personally more interested in was with the design and boy what a change it was!!
In terms of size and usability, the price of the iPhone 12 in Kuwait is justified.
3. DESIGN, DISPLAY, AND BATTERY of iPhone 12
The iPhone 11 and Xr didn’t look bad but they were very obviously the cheaper counterparts to apple’s main iPhone and this was especially noticeable from the front as you had thicker bezels and lower-resolution screen and there was just that overall less premium look.
It was very clear they weren’t the best iPhones even if they were still good phones and that was the intention on apple’s part. so when the iPhone 12 went and flipped this on its head I was pleasantly surprised the iPhone 12 retains the aluminum frame and glossy glass back but flattens the design making the phone look and feel much more compact.
The edges are smooth and flat just like the 12 pro and on the front of the phone we now have reduced bezels and for the first time OLED on an iPhone that isn’t the most expensive. That display is 6.1 inches the same as the smaller 12 pro and it’s almost the perfect smartphone size in my opinion.
If it’s in the hand with relative ease and gives a ton of screen real estate without being too uncomfortable to use, OLED differs from the LCD of the iPhone 11 and Xr. it allows the phone to turn off individual pixels and give true blacks resulting in deeper more vibrant colors. the resolution is also quite a bit higher than the older phones which mean more pixels and a sharper image.
The pixel density of 460 pixels per inch versus the iPhone 11 pixel density of 326 pixels per inch the screen isn’t going to make or break the iPhone 12 for the average user but if you’re someone coming from an old led smartphone or want the best display possible on your device then you’re going to want to look higher than the iPhone 11.
Interestingly the iPhone 12 mini has a slightly higher pixel density than the regular 12 at 476 pixels per inch this is just due to how the phone is sized and it won’t be noticeable in real-life use. The size we get here is 5.4 inches which might sound decently big but the phone itself is again about the size of an iPhone 5 or 5s that’s quite small.
I’m really glad Apple made a small phone like this it had been asked for by a very dedicated group for quite a few years and more variety and choice in the market is a good thing
my friend who owns 12 minis here in Kuwait has a pretty large hand but still prefers the small phone and that’s fair for the iPhone 12 or literally, any iPhone Apple sells.
I would recommend a case as glass backs look nice but tend to be delicate. the glass here is used to accommodate wireless charging. we also have fast charging as well which you can use assuming you have a compatible charger.
The iPhone 12 is water-resistant though you probably shouldn’t go swimming with it while these features have been around for a while. we did get a big new feature with the iPhone 12, and that is mag safe, there’s this magnetic ring around the apple logo within the device that allows you to seamlessly attach various make safe accessories such as their magnetic wireless charger or magnetic portable battery bank, that battery bank in particular only cost you about a kidney or two.
You know no biggie, you can also buy mag-safe compatible cases which admittedly are pretty cool and I have been using them since I got the 12.
Inside the case is that magnetic ring which means it’s compatible with all the chargers as well as various other accessories. There are non-apple products that do support mag safe and are a bit cheaper a lot of the time.
Going back to the phone itself the iPhone 12 and 12 mini are identical as I said except for the display and the battery life. since the 12 is physically larger than the 12 mini it’s got a bigger battery and thus should perform a bit better in that department.
However, both phones from my own experience and from people I know, seem to perform fairly well when it comes to battery life. Battery life lasting a day without much trouble and moderate to heavy usage my iPhone 12 wouldn’t last two days but even with pretty heavy usage, it would more than last a day.
If the battery is a worry I would get the bigger one but you should be looking at the iPhone 13 as it was a pretty decent spec bump in the battery life. I think Apple said two and a half extra hours in the iPhone 13 over the iPhone 12 and then one and a half in the 13 mini over the 12 mini.
In terms of Design, Display, and Battery, the price of the iPhone 12 in Kuwait is justified.
4. CAMERAS of iPhone 12
So that’s quite significant that the iPhone 13 improved a lot of little things including the camera setup.
But it didn’t make any major changes there, the iPhone 12 is pretty darn similar. We have a very good camera setup. There are two lenses on the back both being 12 megapixels one is a normal wide lens and the other is ultra-wide just like with the iPhone 11.
The photos this phone can take are gorgeous and you can see the difference between the two lenses. the normal wide lens will take the better photo, generally speaking, but the ultra-wide is nice to have particularly for landscapes and any situation where you want to get more in the frame.
There is no telephoto zoom lens like on the pro iPhones but as someone who went to the iPhone 12 from the iPhone 11 pro which had the three lenses on the back. I didn’t miss it we do get some nice photography features with the 12 line all the ones that were also on the iPhone 11.
There are night photos that take brighter photos and low light situations and then there are portrait mode photos which blur the background behind the subject giving this beautiful bokeh effect from the portrait shots to the ultra wides, to the regular photos, and do whatever.
The iPhone 12 is beyond capable of capturing gorgeous images and while I’m very much no photographer I did manage to shoot at least a few nice pictures throughout my year with the phone.
Video can be filmed in 4k at up to 60 frames per second and it looks good. iPhones have been the best when it comes to the videography aspect of smartphone cameras for years now and the iPhone 12 is no exception.
Turning to the front of the device the selfie camera can also take 4k video with that single 12-megapixel lens and you can pick between a wider and more zoomed-in field of view. the wider one takes full advantage of the 12-megapixel camera.
All in all the camera of the iPhone 12 is still one of its strongest points even if it’s only slightly improved over the iPhone 11 and that makes sense given that the iPhone 11 and 11 pro were pretty massive upgrades in the photography department when they came out. the important thing is that your phone can consistently take great pictures and the iPhone 12 and 12 mini can handle that with ease speaking of handling things with ease.
In terms of Cameras, the price of the iPhone 12 in Kuwait is justified.
5. PERFORMANCE of iPhone 12
The iPhone 12 is blazing fast, featuring apple’s a14 bionic chipset and four gigabytes of ram.
For any Android users that might not sound like a lot of Ram but keep in mind because apple makes their own software called ios, they’re able to cater the experience to their devices resulting in much greater optimization and speeds.
This phone flies and can tear through anything and everything you could want to do from the basics in social media to video streaming, web browsing, and the more intensive stuff like 3d gaming and the like 5g networking. means there’s also potential for when it comes to the internet. ridiculously fast load times and all of this results in a phone that not only provides a reliable fast and smooth experience but a phone that also doesn’t feel like it’s approaching two years old only this fall.
And the future of software support looks bright. Apple is crazy good when it comes to older smartphones and while most android makers leave you behind after two to three years Apple has most recently given seven years of updates to the iPhone 6s with ios 15.
That is an absurd number for a smartphone and so even trying to be conservative I’d estimate that the iPhone 12 should get at least another four years.
If you’re using the iPhone 12 or 12 mini you’re covered for the foreseeable future and if you do end up buying one right now it will have a long life ahead of it.
In terms of performance, the price of the iPhone 12 in Kuwait is justified.
And now we come back full circle to buying an iPhone 12 in Kuwait. As we established early on buying new from apple just isn’t worth it. when the iPhone 13 has double the storage and all the new stuff for only a hundred dollars more.
However, a lot of people don’t buy their iPhones from apple they get them through their carriers often for deals and on contracts making the price a lot lower right off the bat. so if you find what you consider to be a worthy deal of an iPhone 12 or 12 mini don’t be afraid to go for it they’re still fantastic smartphones in 2022.
If you’re someone who prefers to buy from the used market that’s where things are a little bit less black and white looking to of Kuwait websites the iPhone 12 seems to be going for around 500 to 600 USD. 500 USD is about the lowest I’ve seen a little under 500 USD in a couple of cases but for only a couple hundred dollars more you can get the device brand new with a brand new battery and for me, that would be more worth it.
But then of course you might as well get the 13. the 12 mini is also a bit cheaper so the big thing is to look around for a deal. I’d try to find something under KWD 230 in good condition. if you want to buy used of course Kuwait versus other countries it varies so much it could be so expensive.
I always want to find a deal relative to what’s available. but generally speaking, I always recommend buying a new phone unless you’re quite comfortable with the used market and so with that, I think I’m right about done here.
The iPhone 12 and 12 mini are still such good phones there isn’t too much to say and you would expect just as much given that they’re not even two years old yet. but still nice to see they’ve aged well so far and will no doubt continue to do so in the coming years. if you found this article helpful or interesting maybe share it with your friends and opt-in to our mailing list for more content just like this.
