Analysis: Will purchasing an iPhone 12 series phone now make sense?
Definitely, it makes a lot of sense to purchase lasty years' apple flagship device. While the upcoming iPhone will be better, it will indeed be costlier as well. On the other hand iPhone 12 Series is easily one of the best and most powerful smartphones available in the market right now. Not only it is powered by an immensely powerful A14 Bionic chipset, but the camera performance on these phones is also unparalleled.
Apple is known to support its devices with the latest software for a longer time, iPhones, in general, offer a good return. These phones have a longer shelf life as compared to an Android phone which at max get 3 software updates (barring the new Pixel devices) which means that you’d get the latest features running on 3-4 generation old iPhones.
While iPhones are a costlier upfront investment, after these discounts, the iPhone 12 series is now available at a much cheaper price compared to some of the best Android flagship phones. Also, since the iPhone 12 series is 5G ready, you’d not have to worry about upgrading your phone again soon.
