Should you buy the iPhone 12 mini?

The iPhone 12 mini is now out there its no secret. Alongside the bigger bro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, these phones are unique in their ways. I want to focus on the smaller one the iPhone 12 mini. I will help you decide if its the one for you to buy or to consider the other three iPhones or to choose other phones instead.

The iPhone 12 mini is the flagship smartphone in a compact size. A lot of people have been asking for years for a more good in hand small iPhone and this is the phone. So if you are someone who loves small phones but still wants the premium feel then the iPhone 12 mini is just a good phone for you.

It's the same as the iPhone 12, same design, same main cameras, same performance, same software features just that iPhone 12 mini is smaller. How small you might be wondering? It's 5.4 inches in size.

So as you may know a smaller phone means a smaller battery, the 12 mini has a smaller battery. The battery life on the iPhone 12 mini is manageable, on heavy days you can kill the battery before the day ends if you use it too intensively

It has great standby time though so if you are a light user you should probably be good so you can get it and it won't be any problem in terms of battery.

However, if you are that type of person who does a lot of navigation, gaming, keeps Bluetooth on and have a lot of screen on time in general well, you might consider getting the iPhone 12 instead. It has a bigger battery than the iPhone 12 mini.

Remember it has a 1080p OLED screen which is stunning. You might be watching videos on YouTube, watching a movie on Netflix, playing games, or perhaps watching videos shot on the iPhone it's crispy clear the screen is really good.

It's a small phone so watching videos might be a little pretty weird but you might get used to it but overall it has a great screen so if you are considering buying the iPhone 12 mini based on the screen quality then you should get it. If you like big screens then you should get the bigger iPhone 12 Pro Max, it has a huge screen.

The iPhone 12 mini has the A14 Bionic chip so gaming is easy on this smartphone and it handles tasks easily and the cameras are good too. When it comes to the camera, it has excellent video quality. Compared to the smaller iPhone SE it has an excellent camera by far.

If you play music using the speakers or watch videos you might want to know this. The iPhone 12 mini has smaller speakers. It has two little grills on the bottom left and four small ones on the right side. They sound ok but are not good enough like the 12, 12 Pro, or even the 12 Pro Max.

If you care more about great sound from the speakers then you should choose the iPhone 12, 12 Pro, or 12 Pro Max. Moving to the back of the phone it'ss small Such that the MagSafe wallet fits perfectly on the back of the iPhone 12 mini.

Still on the back of the phone MagSafe charging using the MagSafe wireless charging, charges at 12 watts on the iPhone 12 mini instead of 15 watts on all the other iPhones.

It could be a thermal thing since it's a smaller phone I don't know why, but you might not even notice when you charge it. When you charge a phone using wireless charging when the phone is about to fill up the battery starts to slow down. The phone just peaks at the beginning of charging so it's not something to worry about.

This phone is compact and it is premium so you will enjoy using it. In a world of phones which are huge in size, some people just want smaller phones. The iPhone 12 mini is small and nice to use I highly recommend it.

If you don't like the smaller battery, smaller size, and you want something big with 120Hz you should probably buy the OnePlus 8 Pro or the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus.

Maybe you want big phones and you don't care about the 120Hz refresh rate but you love the Apple ecosystem then you might just get the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

This has been it I hope I have helped you make the correct decision whether to buy the iPhone 12 mini or buy another phone instead. Be safe and catch you guys on the next one.
