Already sold at a lower price than its successor, the iPhone 12 benefits from an additional reduction at RED. A price drop that you can take advantage of, whether you take a mobile plan or not.
Replaced for a year and a half by the iPhone 13, the iPhone 12 has not been downgraded. Far from there. The former figurehead of Apple, which was awarded a 9/10 with us, is still today a premium phone, which does not skimp on performance.
It even has an advantage over its successor: a lower price. Where the iPhone 13 displays a price oscillating between 820 and 850 euros, the iPhone 12 can boast of being sold for 719 euros on the official RED store. And this, thanks to an immediate reduction of 30 euros, valid on the bare phone, without you needing to take a mobile plan.
A smartphone that hasn’t aged a bit
Despite its short year and a half of existence, the iPhone 12 does not lack power. It embeds the A14 Bionic chip, compatible with 5G, which offers high performance on a daily basis… and for many years to come. You can clearly run all the 3D games of the moment in the best possible graphical conditions, and without the slightest slowdown.
The user experience is also at the forefront since the iPhone 12 benefits from the latest iOS 15 updates. What’s more, this smartphone will continue to receive major updates for many years.
Even in photos, the iPhone 12 continues to offer stunning shots, in all situations. It has a dual 12-megapixel camera, respectively a wide-angle lens and another ultra wide-angle.
Only the autonomy is a little behind the iPhone 13. That being said, the iPhone 12 is quite capable of holding a full day of use. Not to mention its compatibility with fast charging and wireless charging via MagSafe (or via any other Qi standard device), allowing it to recover stamina quickly.
Always pleasant to use
Bigger than the iPhone 13 mini, the iPhone 12 is a joy to hold. Its 6.1-inch OLED screen displays a very beautiful image, thanks to its Full HD+ definition of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels.
Its rectangular design, with straight aluminum edges and slightly rounded corners makes it a great phone. Above all, you won’t twist your thumb to reach the top of the screen.
The size of the screen, as well as its calibration with small onions, allows you to view all the streaming content in excellent conditions.
The iPhone 12 benefits from an ultimate good point: its price. It is now offered at 719 euros at RED, against 749 euros, a drop of 30 euros.
Other RED promotions
As always, RED does not just offer a single smartphone on sale. The operator regularly multiplies good deals on phones, of which here are the most interesting.
The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G at 379 euros
The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is an upgraded version of the classic Galaxy A52. We therefore find the very good design of the classic Galaxy A52 with a colored shell (green, lavender, white or black), composed of a matte plastic back and matching metallic contours. The 6.5-inch Super AMOLED screen offers a definition of 2400 x 1080 pixels and above all a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The photo module does not move either, with 4 cameras, including a main 64-megapixel one.
The real difference to the classic A52 is under the hood. The Galaxy A52s 5G features a Snapdragon 778G SoC, a chip that is 40% more powerful than that of the classic Galaxy A52 and 83% more efficient in terms of graphics. The user experience is fluid, whether for multitasking, running demanding applications or 3D games.
Usually offered at 459 euros, the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G goes to 379 euros at RED thanks to an immediate promotion of 80 euros.
The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE at 349 euros
With its curved design, rounded edges and corners, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE may be very classic, but it has to be recognized as having a certain charm. Its 6.55-inch screen is based on AMOLED technology. It offers an FHD+ definition of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Enough to enjoy all the streaming content directly on your smartphone.
It is especially marked by a punch at the top left which houses a 20-megapixel selfie camera. The Xiaomi 11 lite 5G NE also incorporates three cameras on the back. There is thus a main camera of 64 megapixels (f / 1.79), an ultra wide-angle of 8 megapixels (f / 2.2) and a macro lens of 5 megapixels (f / 2.4).
Finally, under the hood, there is a recent Snapdragon 778G with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. A configuration that is more than enough to navigate and play without slowing down.
Normally, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE has a price of 399 euros. That said, thanks to an immediate discount of 50 euros, it drops to only 349 euros.
