Should You Upgrade to iPhone 12 Pro?

Are you unable to decide if you should upgrade to iPhone 12 Pro? Then this paragraph will help in decision making…

Look… It’s entirely up to you. If you are a tech geek or Apple fanboy, you should definitely upgrade to iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max.

If you’re living in the USA or some other developed country, you should definitely upgrade to iPhone 12 series because it support 5G network.

But, if you’re living in India and thinking to upgrade to iPhone 12 Pro for 5G, then it’s not right.

Because the 5G network is not available in India and nobody knows when 5G will be launched in India.

Also, there is no information about the 5G spectrum in India. iPhone 12 5G India model comes with n1 (2100 MHz), n2 (1900 MHz), n3 (1800 MHz. But, TRAI hasn’t announced anything yet about their 5G spectrum.

So, upgrading to iPhone 12 Pro in India just for the shake of 5G is totally a foolish decision.

Also, due to 5G network in iPhone 12 Pro, it consistently drain your battery. That’s why battery backup of iPhone 12 Pro is much poor than iPhone 11 Pro.

So, I would rather stick to my iPhone 11 Pro until 5G roll out started in India.

Conclusion

If you’re living in the United States or any other 5G launched country, you should definitely go with iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Rest is your decision…
