    It wouldn't hurt to try though. I mean, the phone is broken anyway, wouldn't be such a bad idea to give it to one of those shops and ask them if there's anything they could potentially do to fix it. Best case, you get a working phone, worst case, the phone is still broken.

    Some are legit and you can check for reviews on google maps or something. Still, the phone is broken so it's worth a shot IMO.

    You're in India, you should have people repairing phones in malls who will do a better job than any "authorised service centers". The latter don't even try to repair things, just swap major components with new ones for full price.

    You could try giving it to a repair shop or something, but I doubt that it would be worth the money. Or maybe you can look for a replacement main board? Although I don't think you can find one for a reasonable price. Have you considered buying an older used phone to use in the meantime? I think you can find some old Galaxy A series phones for really cheap (<$50).

    One day, Apple will finally use USB-C on iPhone. Today is not that day.

    Different people have different opinions, I guess. I use a 144hz monitor with a 60hz and even the smallest thing like moving my mouse around or scrolling through a document feel more responsive on 144, so for me the difference is definitely noticeable.

    It's not really a necessary item, but this has more to do with convenience. I don't think anyone is thinking "I really wanted to buy an iPhone 12, but no charger in the box is a huge deal breaker." At the end of the day this is a $700+ phone, I shouldn't have to spend another $50 on something that should be included in the box. I wouldn't have a problem if they could be given to you for free as an option. 
    Have you used 120Hz on a phone? It makes everything feel snappier and more responsive. Even 90Hz would have been a huge improvement over 60.
    Probably but I think Pixel's amazing processing might still be able to make up for the hardware deficit. Have you seen what they can do with the 4a? The pictures it takes could easily be mistaken for pictures from a flagship phone.

    Again, that's an opinion. My answer to both questions would be yes. High refresh rate doesn't make a difference if you are reading text, but if you are scrolling through text it makes a big difference and even in general usage it makes my device feel snappier and more responsive. Is 60hz a deal breaker? Hell no, 120hz definitely more of a nice to have than a necessity.

    My point is on UI refresh rate isn't something you notice. Sure you can drag tabs about in windows on 2 different monitors but in general usage your eyes adapt to the rate. Unless you're doing something where the extra frames mean something (a FPS game for example) there's not much point. I have dual monitors, one with 165Hz and one at 75Hz, for just productivity I don't notice the refresh rate difference because it's not doing anything that would make it matter.
    I mean mid tier chipset in relation to cameras, Snaps are behind the A series by a LONG way to start with and the 5 is using a mid tier chip which you'd think would hinder the camera processing. Overall though there's not much left for phone cameras to improve on. They aren't and won't rival even an entry level mirrorless so if you're really into photography just get a proper camera (I tested my 11 Pro vs my bottom tier mirrorless and it doesn't get close). Cinematography is another story where the iPhone is a good entry camera for people to mess around with and shoot like student films or even YouTube on, though it's nice to see Apple continuing to push video on when android hasn't caught the XS yet. Focusing on 8K video that looks horrendous rather than getting 1080p and 4K right.
     
     
    Personally I'm not getting the 12, I got the 11 Pro to stop me getting the 12 because it's a big update and I'll just wait for the next one when all the kinks are ironed out. The new Homepod and how it integrates is interesting though, might be worth a test run.

    Believing that apple has removed the included charger for environmental purposes is just dumb. A $700 smartphone is still within the "expensive" category, adding $50+ isn't going to make things any better. I hope android manufacturers don't follow the same trend.
    Adding 120hz or even 90hz would be a nice feature, it doesn't have to run it out of the box. They could inform the users that battery life will take a hit and let them choose. There's no excuse not implementing it for that price.
     
    And yeah, they finally used a 2340x1080 oled display on their cheaper devices.

    120Hz would have been far more interesting that Dolby HDR video or whatever TBH.
    Video wise? iPhone has always been better. Camera wise, we'll see, a lot of Android manufacturers are focusing much more on their cameras.
