Pocket-lint has an explainer on the U1 chip here, but, in a nutshell: It uses technology, called Ultra Wideband UWB , to determine location and spatial awareness. Apple calls Ultra-Wideband "GPS at the scale of your living room", and the iPhone 11 models and iPhone 12 models currently use this system to enhance Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, as well as to make AirDrop work better and smarter.
Some users complained about how the U1-equipped iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro can track location data even when the location services are turned off.

In response to this, Apple rolled out a software update to allow users to disable the U1 chip. There were also reports when the iPhone 11 models were originally released that UWB technology was not allowed in some countries, like Russia, Iran, Argentina, and Indonesia. Note: By turning the U1 chip off, your iPhone can no longer use location services to improve your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections. Breaking News.

For portrait shots of humans, the iPhone 12 keeps a natural look all around with natural-looking depth-of-field, although the Pixel 5 seems to produce a more aesthetically pleasing bokeh effect. In general low night images, the iPhone 12 uses night mode automatically, and the results are pleasing photos that are much improved over the mediocre night shots captured by the iPhone X and XS. A couple of years ago, a Google or Huawei flagship would be miles better than an iPhone if the scene was dark. For selfies, in particular, the iPhone produces unnervingly raw shots that show us in our exact real-life form, blemishes and all.
Virtually all other Android brands, from Samsung to Huawei, Xiaomi to OnePlus, apply some form of beauty filters to lessen the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, scars. Take the set of selfies below: I am a bit uncomfortable with how bad real my skin looks in the iPhone 12 selfie.
If you zoom close enough, you can see all my acne scars and pores. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro does enough touch up to ease my ego a bit better. The lack of a telephoto lens means every zoom shot of the iPhone 12 is digital, and anything beyond 2X you will start seeing a significant loss of details. Video performance is where the iPhone 12 wins quite convincingly. In general, iPhone 12 footage has better stabilization, and at night, when Android phone videos tend to suffer from micro-jitters with each step I take, the iPhone 12 still manages to keep footage relatively smooth.
Everywhere else, performance has been smooth without issues. Charging the phone can be hit and miss. The new, heavily-hyped MagSafe system is quite useful — I enjoy being able to pick up the phone to respond to some emails and texts without losing charge. And here are some quick takeaways on how the iPhone 12 compares to all of them. But the iPhone 12 Pro has a more powerful processor, is much easier to hold and use throughout the day, and is a lot cheaper.
The S20 FE wins in screen and camera versatility, but the iPhone 12 feels far more premium in the hand and has better video performance along with a more powerful chip. Part of this is just trickery — OnePlus is making animations extra fast to evoke the feeling of UI fluidity, but it works.
The 8T, like the iPhone 12, also lacks a dedicated zoom lens, but it still produces sharper zoom because it pulls data from the larger, more pixel-dense 48MP sensor. I also love the front of the phone, with uniform bezels and just a small hole-punch cut-out.
It lasts a lot longer on a single charge than the iPhone 12 too. But the iPhone 12 has significantly better video performance and perhaps the biggest win of all: the iPhone 12 can run key Google apps like YouTube or Google Docs without issues.

As I said at the beginning, I have been a happy Android user since I love being able to customize my Android exactly the way I like it, and I am a fan of the diverse form factors and quirky innovations. I still get a sense of excitement at quirky and forward-thinking Android devices like the LG Wing with a swivel design, Royole FlexPai 2 with a bendy screen, or a Vivo X50 with the gimbal camera system, more than I do a new iPhone.

The iPhone 12 is so good, I'm tempted to switch from Android. In other words, the areas in which Android won clearly in the past has been narrowed significantly. Because the iPhone 12 is that good. Instead, you may want to consider the iPhone 12 Pro Max for an even better camera system or the iPhone 12 Mini for the novelty of using a petite phone.
