Every iPhone 12 other than the iPhone 12 Pro Max has terrible battery life. It's the obvious choice for me, but then again, big phones aren't for everybody.

For people who don't actively use their phones however, I can see them getting the iPhone 12 Mini for it's "niche" size and more affordable pricing.

Just my opinion:

If you own an i11 then only the i12 Pro Max makes sense. i12 may be OK because of the OLED panel, but the i12 Pro is a bit overpriced in this respect.

If you own an i11 Pro/Pro Max then just skip the i12 Pro/Pro Max as it's an incremental upgrade.

It looks like only the i12 mini or i12 is worth buying this year. The Pro models are quite tasteless. Besides the iPhones (even older models) have a boatload of issues thanks to poorly made iOS 14. Some iPhone users have been switching back to Samsung or some other Android phones recently because of this.

No one should get new phone every 12 months unless phone is broken.
One reason why companies charge too much.
