iPhone 12 Display Gap Issue - Should you be concerned?

  Shikime 123,178


Muaj më parë

iPhone 12 may have a display gap issue. iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max bring a new, but familiar design with squared off edges and some are noticing a gap between the display and the frame. In this video I go over why there is a gap and what you should do if you see too large of a gap on the latest iPhone 12 series phones. #iPhone 12 #iphone12pro #Apple #iPhone

As we all now, iPhones are expensive... not perfected .... android’ s are not perfect as well .... stop looking for probability’s and you all will see, thing getting better, the worst problem on an iPhone, iPad, etc , on about 85% is based on a smart peace os machinery that is placed at about a few milimeters or eventually Alf meter 5 feet .... witch is .... THE USER .... OF THE PHONE.

It looks terrible. It is an issue. We don't pay a premium for that. It should be perfectly aligned on all edges. The display is not placed evenly into the frame. That is why there is a large gap on one side and not the other. The iPhone 11 has perfect alignment on all edges even with a set tolerance. The 12 is just sloppy finishing. More precision should be made into placing the glass as the final step. Tolerance is irrelevant when then display is uneven in the frame.

Yeah I understand this engineering but you would expect them to make the gaps equal around the whole display.... I had a iPhone XR and the screen was plonked in so roughly it was butted right up against the body of the frame on one side and had a disgusting gap on the other.... That’s not a sign of an well made expensive product. You spend £60,000 on a nice new car.... it would piss you off if one panel was off compared to the other side..... it’s a sign of quality and engineering if you make things as symmetrical as possible.

That’s not a problem at all it’s even better to have gap, bigger gap less prone to breaking the screen if dropped. There is a seal under and no need to worry about it.

@Hello that makes sense, when they switched back to the older design I was scared of the lifting because that happened with my old phone loll. But nice to know that they have adhesive now

When they were making the 5s they hadn’t put adhesive around the screen. They only started to use adhesive when the 6s came out! Hope this helps!!

Fabian 29 ditë më parë
Well actually, Apple just didn’t include the buffer layer to cover up the gap. I think it might be because the display won’t be as flat or there would be too much pressure or tension between materials. I think they put the buffer layer or something similar to it on the inside of the phone for that IP68 rating.

I feel like this particular design is so that the glass isn’t constantly in contact with the metal frame when the phone is dropped, this gap (in my theory) absorbs the force of the phone hitting the ground much greater than if the glass was cemented to the frame, this acts as a type of suspension system, because depending on the amount of force, the glass wont contact the inner frame, or if all - little, which means that the glass doesn’t receive as much force as the metal frame from a ‘side on’ impact point
