Tuesday, January 26th, 2021


If you’re looking to upgrade to Apple’s best recent iPhones, you’re probably looking at the recent iPhone Pros. Now the real question is, how do you decide between the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro? And is there actually a difference? Here’s a clear and easy breakdown to help you decide what phone is the best for you.

Money makes the world go around. Getting a new iPhone is an investment so let’s break down what you’ll pay for each phone. The iPhone 12 Pro starts at £999 for 128GB of storage. Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 Pro started at £1,049 for 64 GB when it launched in 2019 but it can be picked up right here on Unlocked Mobiles for £999. Best bang for your buck? Buying on Unlocked Mobiles saves you money on both phones and offers Sim Freedom to maximize your savings!

There wasn’t any huge visual design changes between these two models. The iPhone 12 Pro features a 6.1inch display in a fairly compact design that measures 146mm x 71.5mm x .29mm and weighs 189 grams. While the iPhone 11 Pro offers a 5.8inch display in a handset that measures 144mm x 71.4mm x .32mm and weighs in at 188 grams. The real difference lies in durability. Unlike the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone 12 Pro offers a Ceramic Shield front with 4x better drop performance. It is also has a deeper maximum depth in splash, water, and dust resistance. Care more about battery life? The iPhone 11 Pro has a slightly longer video playback life, while the audio playback life is identical in both phones. Our Vote? The iPhone 12 Pro is the clear design winner in measuring durability and resistance. You no longer need to be nervous about those beach days!

The OLED displays on the iPhone 12 Pro (6.1inch ) and the iPhone 11 Pro (5.8inch) are stunning. We’re talking, your grandpa will think he’s looking out a window kind of stunning. The phone’s brightness, colour, and photo accuracy is the best you’ll find on any phone. The displays are identical across the board from colour quality, to brightness, to contrast ratio. The main difference is the iPhone 12 Pro has a slightly higher pixel resolution. No wrong choice here. The handsets are very similar but hit up the iPhone 12 Pro if you want the most modern and innovative image.

But what if your amateur Instagram photography business is taking off and you need to come through with quality pictures? It’s no secret that Apple has been killing it with their phone cameras. Both the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro have a triple 12MP camera system with Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto lenses. Not to mention, both phones record Dolby Vision video in 4K for stunningly colorful footage. What about photography at night? If you’re looking to shoot in the dark, the iPhone 12 Pro is the one for you. The Wide Camera has an f/1.6 aperture. This allows 27% more light than the iPhone 11 Pro for better low light photos and videos. The iPhone 12 Pro also introduces Night Mode Portraits to maximize night mode quality. Both phones will capture masterpieces but if you’re looking to the capture adventures under the night sky, you have to go with the iPhone 12 Pro.

So there you have it! There’s no wrong choice. The iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro are both sleek, high-speed devices that excel industry-wide in display quality, performance and photography. If you want my two cents, I’d go with the iPhone 12 Pro for the best durability, photography, and the most powerful chip in a smartphone. You can get both phones on Unlocked Mobiles today for sim freedom, and fast delivery!

How does the Lumia 650 compare to the Lumia 950 and 950xl?

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Yesterday saw the launch of the Microsoft Lumia 650, a budget friendly Windows 10 handset, with a decent set of specifications for the price tag. Marketed by Microsoft as a budget friendly, smaller alternative to the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950xl we take a look at what this has to offer in comparison to the flagship handsets.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL are the more powerful of the Windows devices being compared, but they also have the higher price tag to match. The Lumia 950 offers 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory with microSD expansion and a Snapdragon 808 processor. The larger Lumia 950 XL offers the same as the 950 in regard to RAM and memory, but runs on has the Snapdragon 810 chip.

Microsoft 650 vs 950 vs 950xl

The more budget friendly Lumia 650 features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with microSD storage expansion. This is obviously a compromise in spec compared to the flagships, which is also seen  in terms of camera and battery capacity, but in our opinion it does offers more than the other budget friendly Lumia, the Lumia 550 in most specifications.

When comparing cameras on the handsets, the Lumia 650 does reveal it’s budget friendly price tag, with a mere 8 megapixels – quite a drop from the 20 mega pixels of the 950 and 950xl. However all models offer the same 5 megapixel front facing camera, which is useful when holding FaceTime meetings or capturing selfies.

The recently released Lumia 650 is the thinnest and most lightweight Windows 10 device currently on the market, making it good for those who travel frequently. The 650 offers an AMOLED display similar to the flagship handsets, but it is slightly smaller at 5-inch, with a pixel resolution of 1280 x 720.

All handsets offer the best of Windows 10, including OneDrive and Office allowing you to be more productive thanks to the ability to sync across Microsoft devices. However, Microsoft have left some disappointed with the lack of one useful Windows 10 feature from the new Lumia 650: Continuum.


Microsoft has responded to the lack of Continuum, stating:

“We are aiming to deliver the most productive Windows 10 Mobile devices at all price points,” said an official Microsoft Spokesperson. “With the Lumia 650, our goal was to create a beautiful device that’s affordable for businesses to buy and deploy.”

“In this price range we are giving customers smart business tools, including seamless Office and OneDrive integration and Cortana, so users can stay productive and synced across all Windows 10 devices. We encourage users looking for Continuum productivity features to explore the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.”

You can purchase the Lumia 650 Sim Free and the Mozo Back Cover Case for the 650 with next day delivery today.
