Apple iPhone 12 Mini review: Tiny yet mighty

 

The iPhone 12 Mini is delightfully small, yet provides a complete experience with exceptional hardware, features, and camera quality. It's the best small phone.

Incredible compact size ; Great camera quality ; Top-notch performance ; Every iPhone 12 feature

Weak battery life ; Screen can actually feel cramped

Apple iPhone 12 mini Review

 

Perfect hand-friendly form factor ; Excellent performance ; Better battery life than other small iPhones

Shorter battery life than larger iPhones

Apple's iPhone 12 mini delivers the best price-to-power ratio of any 2020 iPhone, bringing top-of-the-line features to a phone that easily fits into smaller hands.

Apple iPhone 12 mini review: fit to size

 

Apple finally made a small iPhone again. Except for battery life, it's great.

Excellent camera ; Small with great build quality ; Fast

Battery life is below average ; Is mmWave 5G really necessary? ; 60Hz screen is behind the competition

Apple’s iPhone 12 mini has all the power and performance of its larger sibling, the regular iPhone 12. But having a small screen also means that there’s a smaller battery, so battery life does take a hit.

iPhone 12 mini review: a pocket-sized powerhouse

 

The iPhone 12 mini is a bite-sized beast

Tiny but mighty; Beastly performance ; Cute and compact ; Mid-range pricing ; Nostalgic design

So-so display ; Mediocre battery life ; No power adapter

The iPhone 12 mini is a powerful, pocket-sized phone, but battery life is curtailed by its cute, compact chassis.

Apple iPhone 12 mini Review – Small Surprise

 

The iPhone 12 mini has no right being the cheapest model in Apple's iPhone 12 family. Sure, on paper you're spending the smallest amount on the smallest display, but – like the mo…

Small size without power compromise ; Same great cameras as on the iPhone 12 ; 5G supports fastest mmWave - if you can find it

Battery life could be better ; No 120Hz display

Apple iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone SE (2020)

 

The iPhone 12 mini is already official, and fans of compact phones should bask in the joy. What about the iPhone SE (2020) you may ask? Well, it seems like compact phones are returning in one form or another, which means more freedom of choice. Good,...

Apple iPhone 12 mini review: min-maxing it the Apple way

 

The iPhone 12 mini is the closest you can get to the good old iPhone 5s. And it's good!

Tiny, cute, pocketable, comfortable; Same great display as all iPhone 12 series; Same great camera as iPhone 12; MagSafe is cool and has potential; Fast performance, lots of headroom

The camera module looks a bit goofy on a mini phone; No charger, no headphones in the box; Battery can drain fast; 64 GB starting storage is OK, but feels a bit stingy; 60 Hz refresh rate

Apple iPhone 12/mini vs iPhone 11

 

Should you upgrade to the new 5.4" iPhone 12 mini 5G or 6.1" 12 from the lowly iPhone 11? We preview the new form factor and display sizes, the specs and camera differences, so you know whether to switch.

Apple iPhone 12 Mini review: Proof big things can come in small packages Review | ZDNet

 

The smallest iPhone 12 of the lot, the Mini is just as capable and powerful as its bigger counterparts.

Strong performance ; Photo quality is fantastic ; OLED display ; Small design

Battery life might be an issue for some ; 5G support isn't widely available to benefit everyone
