sadh, 29 Oct 2020Why so many people making judgements based on their own preferences?
Many people, some men ... moreApple are greedy they dont want to give us good battery in the 12 mini .
If you want to see a good battery live in a compact phone look at this
Flagship in its time . 835 snapdragon and with 108h battery test.
and this is few years ago and small phone.
go ask Apple why they are not making a similar one. nd they CAN
some of you people need to get a grip, you have some sort of size complex if smaller size phones makes you this upset for existing, or somebody preferring it.
Pityko, 30 Oct 2020They will sell a ton of these, most people have been begging for smaller flagship phones for years. Exactly my thoughts
Mini will wash away, when front camera black portion is too big for Screen Size! Nonsense

This phone is perfect for people with small hands like my sister.
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2020No matter what screen size, watching movies on a phone is dumb. Try watching movies in a public train using a 4k 70 inch TV. Remember to bring your 50km extension cable.

Browsing might be better. But you will need two hands and will be holding a phone just a shade under a quarter kilo. Carpel tunnel anyone? I know a lot of people complaining about eye strain and headaches from watching videos extensively on the phone. You need at least 10 inches (ideally more) for viewing comfort.
Zoom meetings with a single person should be fine. But multiple windows and conference calls again need at least 12 to 14 inches.
Nevertheless, there are millions of phones in the size category you prefer. But the Mini is the only one. It's not ideal. I expect poor battery life. They could have increased thickness by 2mm and weight by 20gms for a thicker battery. I know 5 inch phones with 4000mah batteries. But I do hope this inspires other OEMs to make 5.4 inch phones. They are a necessity.

Anonymous, 30 Oct 2020Ah, that's why their phones go boom. :)
Samsung is there to sell you phones, they know... moreWhy you still dragging note 7 exploding fisaco into this? That was a one off.
No other Samsung models have exploded since.
When did the M series with 6000mAh battery explode?

Samsung is there to sell you phones, they know you want specs, so they squeeze and squeeze.. compromising your safely for that bit of $$. And they know, the android running it is a hog.. it will keep squeezing that battery.
Apple is the other way around, they engineer their product for safely first, then optimize it. If a phone is good, customer will always come back.
Besides, One is Li Po, the other Li Ion. Sure both have tendency to go boom, but for iPhone, its under very extreme cases.. Hope you have that insurance for your Samesung ok. :)

What bigger better things can one do in a phone that's 1 inch larger? Say 6.4-6.7 inch? Write a book? Create edit audio video? Develop a game? Use computer aided design? Launch a satellite into orbit? Watch a 2 hour movie or binge watch a web series without ruining your eyes?
Pixel 3A 151.3 x 70.1 x 8.2 mm (5.96 x 2.76 x 0.32 in) = 86970 m3 / or 10606m2 surface area
iPhone 12 mini 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4 mm (5.18 x 2.53 x 0.29 in) = 62473 m3 / 8442m2 surface area
ip12 mini is 72% of p3A by volume. or by surface area 79% of p3A.
iPhone 12 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4 mm (5.78 x 2.81 x 0.29 in) = 77618.97 m3 / 10489 m2. SO basically p3A is BIGGER thEN the normal sized iPhone 12.. WHAT A BIg shame.
