is usually a powerhouse for reviews, performance tests and endurance of the new and desired devices that come on the market.

The announced

iPhone 12

is one of the stars of the platform, and as such it was subjected to

blows, hammer blows and falls

to determine the durability of a phone that is around a thousand dollars in its superior model. 

Specifically, the insurance company

Allstate

conducted a series of tests in order to determine whether the touted Apple smartphone, which incorporates a

Ceramic Shield

coating on the screen

,

is the most reliable that has ever been tested in terms of

resistance to bumps and falls

.

In a report they claim that both the

iPhone 12 (US $ 749)

and the

iPhone 12 Pro (US $ 999)

survived

three drop tests of almost 2 meters

on an uneven surface, one from the front down, one from the back down and one sideways. 

Eventually, the models suffered

considerable damage

in all three tests, and the slightly heavier iPhone 12 Pro was directly affected in consideration on the glass rear.

When the iPhone 12 fell with the screen facing the ground, it

suffered only small cracks

and scraped edges.

This is significantly better than its predecessor, the iPhone 11 and the Samsung Galaxy S20, they said from Allstate.

The iPhone 12 Pro, which is 25 grams heavier than the iPhone 12,

cracked in the lower half of its screen

 but suffered no noticeable malfunctions or functional damage.

Although it was scraped along its corners and edges after impact, the iPhone 12 was

virtually uninjured

when it was dropped on its back from 2 meters.

However, the back of the iPhone 12 Pro was

completely destroyed

, causing the glass to loosen and crack in its wide chamber.

Lastly, side-down drop tests: When dropped sideways, both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro suffered scrapes and sharp steel edges, especially along the corners, but were otherwise undamaged.

Based on tests conducted by Allstate it can be determined: "The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro […]

performed better than any smartphone

tested previously […] The Ceramic Shield front is a huge improvement. That said, both phones were damaged when dropped on the floor. "

And they added: "Given its high repair costs, we recommend that everyone

wear a protective case

and treat their new iPhone 12 with the care you would give an expensive camera."

On the other hand, the new flagship of Apple phones, iPhone 12 Pro, is

available from Friday, October 23

, a renewal of the iPhone 11 Pro with OLED panel, A14 Bionic processor, triple camera system and connectivity support. 5G.

This device works with the A14 Bionic processor, manufactured with a 5 nanometer process, which improves the speed of the GPU by 50% compared to the best chips from other brands.

It includes a 16-core Neural Engine, which

increases performance by 80%

, and can perform 11 trillion operations per second even in the most demanding environments.
