Apple iPhone 12 mini review

Face ID does not work with a mask....I like that :)
If only there was an android equivalent , and since the Galaxy A3 2017 there is not really a small phone.
The price is ridiculous though and without a charger.
Then there is "How do I charge the phone if I am out and about ?"
Apple wind / solar powered hat chargers ?...only $600.
If someone gave me one I would probably sell it.

I thought this was going to be my next phone to replace my aging Xperia XZ1 Compact, was even willing to jump to iOS even though i have necer liked it, but then Apple decided to put a tiny pecker in it. Now I have to hope this actually sells well so that we might see Sony bringing back the Compact lineup and show how real compact phones are made.

Is it a victory for you when others use your favorite products? What are you compensating for, your inability to reproduce? If someone switch to Android youre like “welcome my children”?

They are very clise in size, 12mini is closer in size to the original SE than to SE 2020, yet the display is bigger than 5 inch phones 2-3 years ago. Battery of mini is way better than both, and camera is insanely far ahead. Im not in doubt, 12 mini is the best smartphone ever.

If you cannot get by it with ios file management then the problem lies elsewhere.

Anonymous, 23 Nov 2020What does iOS "needs better file management" mean?It means that iOS file management is absolute garbage compared to Android.
It is non intuitive, cumbersome to use, non user friendly, etc.
The OS is called handicapped for a reason.

Apple simply gives you small battery so that when users complain, they can urge them to buy the bigger expensive models.

They propably won’t, Apple have very long experience with small phones. Also for the size of battery iPhones always been very power efficient. So if you get average battery life with this phone, how you think Android phones would do with similar battery. I don’t think competitors will find a way how to put everything into such a compact phone. That’s propably reason why Android phones got bigger and bigger. Easier to fit everything inside.

I'm still with an old SE, I love that size and I love the phone.
Was hoping for a similar sized model but the mini might do.
On the other hand, for which I use the phone the old SE is still doing a great job.
Maybe the competitors will also come with smaller sized phones and a race to smaller will start ☺.
Probably as long a Apple updates the IOS I'll stick to my old SE.

If Apple gives him 720p display, he'll justify how that is better than QHD+@120hz display.
If Apple gives him empty box without phone, he'll praise Apple for reducing everyone's carbon footprint.
The guy is a Complete joke. Nothing but a glorified trrrollll who racked up 1000 posts.

I’m curious how the battery fares when 5G is turned off, when LTE is selected in the settings.
I’m still on the first generation SE and have been long waiting for this upgrade.
The best sized phone I’ve owned was the Xperia Ray. A tiny bar with a 3.3” screen which had higher resolution than Apple’s “retina” screens at that time. Hell, that thing did fit into the small Zippo pockets of jeans.

You and boy below you can be found in every Apple article bashing Apple. You both clearly don’t care about Apple and yet you both are in every Apple article? Where this obsession comes?
