JDK, 13 Oct 2020It says that the drop resistance is 4x better, though.That still remains to be seen as how well the latest glass actually performs in real world tests. The Victus glass made some bold claims, but a drop was all it took to shatter the front of the Note 20 Ultra, as per some early test video on YouTube, while some other video showed it as living up to the hype but all in all, whenever a company makes a claim about the glass, it's usually hard to believe
Now those susceptible to PWM/headaches with OLED have no new iPhone option. Call that a fail in my book.
AnonD-804996, 13 Oct 2020I wonder if this Ceramic Shield has anything to do with Victus glass or is it really something... moreeither it's a fancy schmancy name for Victus or it's some kind of "ceramic infused glass" which may turn out to be bunk and "scratches at a level 6", and we'll have no idea if it's any more shatterproof than current phones.
nevertheless I'm excited for the mini, first time I've been genuinely excited for an apple product since the 2016 SE launch.

mmwave is barely there in other countries.
12 Mini is interesting in many ways. It's SMOL or super compact, almost as big as the Galaxy Alpha, lighter than SE 2020, uses a standardised resolution at 1080p like the iPhone 6-8+, costs the same as iPhone 11 at launch, no price increase despite adding 5G support.
George, 13 Oct 2020I hope android oems will copy the form factor.it is about time already !!!Never going to happen.
1) except Samsung, LG and Motorola, all other have most of their sales in Asia. Ppl there ( mainly Southeast ans East) prefer big screens.
2) smaller phone has higher R&D costs , you need to find ways to insert everything big version has. Not always possible
3) only Sony ever cared about compact flagships. They would never cut many things like Apple has done to 12 Mini. It does not have the mmWave hardware like the Pro, no 3rd camera, no ToF and battery must be bit less than 2300mAh. And there is no jack .
So if anyone here wants to see a 13,7cm version of S20 Ultra, 1 ii , P40 Pro or Mi 10 Pro, I am sorry. That is an impossible dream now.
I desperately wishing Xiaomi copy mini design in redmi phone's (non note)
Panda eyes, 13 Oct 2020I really love the return of the flat/chamfered edges, love boxy designs. Drawn towards the min... moreSame here. Especially if the phone is slim, boxy edges are the only way to easier handling.
Sadly nokia also not selling good boxy designs now
Really admire that iphone 12 mini , as small as it is with all that capability ... AMAZING, but the price is too high Foreal!😑💔
AnonD-948658, 13 Oct 2020Be sure to buy a powerbank with the mini or don’t stray too far from a power outlet1 android phone = 1 iPhone mini 12 +power bank. But yes the battery life will prevail.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2020Well the iPhone 12 mini is a super star indeed. India pricing at 70k converting to $ 930. But... moreBe sure to buy a powerbank with the mini or don’t stray too far from a power outlet
George, 13 Oct 2020It is because of exynos.S10e is from last year.Any suggestion from 2020 ?Pixel 4a and Pixel 5, with a length of around 144mm. Not as compact as the iPhone 12mini, though, but still more compact than most Android phones out there.
AnonD-804996, 13 Oct 2020I wonder if this Ceramic Shield has anything to do with Victus glass or is it really something... moreI guess since the Note 20 Ultra boasted of being the first phone with the Victus glass, which puts it at an advantage over other phones, iPhones including, so they thought they must come up with something of their own to compete with it
I'm happy Apple released the iPhone 12 Mini... Now, Android Phone manufacturers will copy the iPhone 12 Mini by releasing compact Android phones with flagship-level specs and headphone jack at competitive prices... Thank you, Apple from an Android user...
So... Can we get cheap android flagship killers now to compete with these?
The prices are getting ridiculous for top specification phones in android world.
Hope android OEMs will follow the fruit company "trend" again.
Apple does what andron't - android needs a compact flagship. Indeed the pixel 5 is your best bet and priced even below the mini. A Samsung S30 mini with 5,5" bezelless w/ punchhole would sell like hot butter even at 1000$ .
Memyselfandi, 13 Oct 2020This comment is familiar!! Every time Apple releases a Phone I read similar comments. Ha what did you expect.It is apple it is always the same 😁
Price too high.
