iFixit has many comments on all the iPhone 12 series, but the two that stand out are
Thus far, the iPhone 12 series has struggled to accommodate some hefty 5G hardware. The result is deep cuts to battery capacity, speakers, and even the Taptic Engine.

It’s the best of all possible worlds if you don’t mind the biggest of all possible worlds.
The glass on front and back doubles the likelihood of drop damage. If the back glass breaks, you’ll be removing every component and replacing the entire chassis. Ouch!
