Last Friday, October 23, sales of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro smartphones began in several countries. The devices just fell into the hands of users, and immediately a lot of flaws were discovered that darken the joy of owning a new toy.
Many fans of digital technologies, even a few months before the announcement, paid attention to the continuity of the design. The appearance of the iPhone 12 has something in common with the flagship of 2012 iPhone 5. However, the smartphone has adopted not only the style of the legendary ancestor, but also one of its main drawbacks. Paint is easily chipped off the side faces of the device. This is confirmed by the photos of the “showcase” iPhone 12 published on the Web, which in a couple of days came into a very unsightly look.
Another significant flaw was described by the authoritative insider Max Weinbach (Max Weinbach). In his Twitter account, he said that on his brand new iPhone 12 Pro, for unknown reasons, the back cover cracked in the area of the main camera block, confirming his words with a photo. Weinbach claims that his smartphone did not fall. However, Apple’s technical support service replaced the device with a new one without any problems. Here I would like to note that replacing the back panel, according to Apple itself, costs $ 449 for the iPhone 12 and $ 549 for the iPhone 12 Pro.
In addition, users complain about the ergonomics of the smartphone with sharp edges. Some even claim that they are able to leave cuts on their hands, confirming their words in the photo. We can only hope that Apple will quickly respond to customer complaints and fix at least paint and rear issues in the next batch of iPhone 12.
