Kingslayer, 08 May 2021I love hardware of this phone. It's not really that mini. It's more of the size of a... moreThis is because you are an android fan. iOS is definitely superior to android, but that’s not your case.
Don't be deceived by the size, this phone is really good, at least for a moderate user like me.
- Camera is great with deep fusion, able to take nice photos
- Battery can last about 1.5days for me, I use mostly for social media, listening songs, reading, and calls.
- Screen size is perfect, exactly what I wanted.
- Speakers just nice, not as loud as in mi phones I previously used.
- Pocket friendly. So handy and easy to bring around. The squarish design makes it easier to hold
- A14 chip makes the phone just blazing fast. Love that!
All in all, I'm a happy user of this phone, I'm not a fanboy for Android or iOS (I like both anyway), but this phone simply suit my preference and need.

I considered buying 12 mini to replace my aging 7 but I think I'll switch back to Android, I miss having the most basic functionalities of a phone like a proper file manager, ability to download mp3 from webpages and not from apps and so on. Iphones have a high quality hardware, cameras are excellent, OS is optimized like Android never will be, guaranteed updates for 5 years if not more and so on. If all you need is a phone for just calling and messaging and want a high quality phone with a great camera, look no further. Anything more than that and get an Android, it's completely different to iOS.
Ajis, 07 May 202112 mini or 11 pro?11 pro if you want a more premium feeling phone, a nicer display, better battery life and triple cameras. 12 mini if you want the A14 bionic, flat edges and a smaller phone.
I will consider buying the iPhone mini only if Apple improves the battery life
In 2-3 years from now when Apple has finally moved on from this 2017 design and they decide to use this design and size for their next SE phone, will definitely be interested in that- true compact phone in the midrange market.
mini / 12 / 13 mini...?
Which should i pic / wait for ?
Need- Lightweight + camera
Most people have concerns regarding the battery life of this phone, consider that seemingly tiny 2227mAh battery. And while true; it is a low capacity, the phone is so efficient it makes up for a majority of it I feel. I came from an Asus ROG Phone 2, a phone with a monstrous 6000mAh battery and honestly, I do not feel like my battery life has been shortened significantly, if much at all. This is coming from a person of whom plays games often on their phone, being games such as BTD6 or other semi-intensive games. So if battery is a concern to you, feel assured that this phone isn't as poor as the specifications may indicate.
The biggest mistake that I have ever made was going with SamSung .. I have always been with Android since they came out .. I will never buy another Samsung again .. I bought the S10 week later got a fault .. they replaced it .. it's still under warranty till Sept 2021 .. another fault now when I get a call can't hear the person talking .. unless I hang up and redial then it works OK .. Intermittent fault sometimes it's fine .. I will just use it like a tablet .. Yesterday I bought the iphone 12 Mini .. 😍 .. It's Amazing!! .. I also have an S10e which is fine at the moment .. when it's time to upgrade .. It will be with Apple!! ...
Best thing in apple is processor. No over heat issue like android. 12 mini boxy body i really love it. its very fast and light weight. so far battery backup is very good. almost half day with heavy usage like Teams call. skype call normal calls and gaming. its fantastic device. I never fell any issue since last 6 month i am using this device.
S, 06 May 2021How`s the call quality on this phone, is it loud and clear, any signal reception problems???Yes the signal is better than the 11 series as it uses a qualcomm antenna
I bough it Decembef 2020, still 1x charge everyday untill now. I love the compact size and the screen. no complaint for the battery. dont be fooled by the number, love this phone!
While the battery life is not the best, it is better than the SE (2020) I traded it in for.
The device is well built, and beyond the battery, there is no compromise compared to the iPhone 12. Excellent camera, lighting fast, and good build quality as is usual from Apple.
For everyone concerned about the battery life of 12 mini, I bought my 12 mini in march and now it is may and in 2 months i have been consistently getting 11 hours SOT on every single charge. People talk about the numbers.. numbers are not everything, i have s20 ultra and that phone has 4000 mah battery but that still doesn't last me more than 9 hours even on airplane mode.. while my 12 mini is giving me 11 hours SOT every single time, i just use dark wallpapers and dark mode always + background app refresh disabled for apps like facebook and some other apps which are known to eat battery, and lastly no 5g because 5g is bullshit. it makes no noticeable difference at all so i'm just using 4g and it is always enabled 24/7 and location also turned on 24/7 even then my 12 mini is giving me 11 hours SOT.. Don't look for youtuber's reviews, the reviews are far from real life experience ! if somebody wants any proof from me i can send screenshots of my 12 mini's battery life as proof.
