Just got this phone today (4-19-2021). It's the black 64 GB model. Won't use it until my case arrives. This is my first iPhone in 11 years and since the 4 where I plan to use it as my daily driver. I will always be Team Android. I was on iOS first but I used Android as my platform for a good 10 years.
I only decided to return to iOS for my Apple Watch and most of my family are on iOS. When I was using iPhone as my daily driver (2008-2011), most people around me weren't on iOS. It became big once it was available for all carriers by 2012. Now I return to Apple where everyone now has it.
I like the design so far because the back is reminiscent of my 4 and the band is reminiscent of the slate 5 which scuffed easily. That's why I don't plan to use it until my case arrives. Had to trade-in my 7 to get the 12 mini and I won't regret it. My 7 was a Tracfone which is expensive to unlock. I got $530 bill credits from T-Mobile for my 7.
Mini phones are great but trust me, most will not like the battery life
Sivaraghu, 31 Mar 2021Apple!!!whatever it may be mini,pro,pro max.S21 eyes closed !!!
well... you pay a lot of money and your phone refuses to let the wifi printer connect to his royal aass and and the wireless charging shots down itself after 1-2 days forcing you to restart the phone to work again so you cannot charge and use headphones at the same time. not worth the money. do not change from 11 if you have it! only the pictures are better and the sound is good but... little difference for the money. I switched from Ipone 5 SE and still do not not feel I received much improvement... but rather more problems.... as I am concerned.
LukKook, 19 Feb 2021Hi, yes it makes sense to upgrade. I switched in November from redmi note 8 pro to iPhone 12 m... moreOh wow so glad I read your comment. I am currently using the Redmi Note 8 pro and love the battery life. Also thinking of trying out the iPhone mini. Scared of the small battery but the iPhone just seems so small and powerful. The Xiaomi has stutter issues throughout the user interface. It is my main pet peeve with the brand. I even tried out a Xiaomi with 120hz refresh rate on the screen but because the UI is so freaking unoptimized it means that even simple tasks like unlocking the screen you are met with stutter.
soukou, 16 Feb 2021Hello! I own a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 pro for two years and three months and it keeps running lik... moreHi. I have the same problem as you. I also own a Xiaomi and love the battery life. I am not a fan of the MIUI though. The iPhone mini reminds me of my SE(2016). Its fast and capable. I am scared of that battery life.
Perfect compliment to my 12 Pro Max which I use at home. The Mini is great as a travel phone. Fits in a suit pocket without showing. Now fully converted to Apple gear. Client gave me a Samsung Android phone to use and I could not stand it. I guess a lot is personal taste.
Alitaghavi, 30 Mar 2021iPhone 12 mini or iPhone 12 or Galaxy S21 which one is the best option? Thank you for your help 🙏Quite honestly, the main competition is between the IP12 and the S21, I wouldn't bother including the mini phone.
It's no mystery why this phone failed, but the real mystery is why Apple is planning to release future models of this phone.
