Thankfully, there are still a lot of cyber Monday TV deals. It is not often said how long they will last – some will return very quickly to their standard price, while others will pull a discount to change some stocks by the end of 2020. Others still hold the discount as a permanent price reduction, where the discount is decided by the manufacturer rather than the retailer.
It’s already Friday, October 23, in Australia and New Zealand, which means some customers who purchased an iPhone 12 or 12 Pro already have their new devices in hand. We’ve seen dozens of reviews of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro from media sites, but now first impressions from regular Apple customers are available.

New iPhone 12 and 12 Pro owners are sharing their opinions of the device on the MacRumors forums, and for those awaiting their own new iPhone or considering making a purchase, impressions from average consumers provide useful insight.
MacRumors reader Boardiesboi shared several photos and says that the lighter weight of the 12 Pro is immediately noticeable coming from an iPhone 11 Pro Max. The color of the Pacific Blue iPhone is described as “beautiful,” and Boardiesboi found the squared-off edges make the iPhone “nice to hold” and “less slippery.”

A Redditor who got the new Pro also in Pacific Blue said that he’s glad he didn’t chose the mini because the squared off shape makes the iPhone 12 more compact. He also said the shiny edges of the iPhone attract a lot of fingerprints.
