Size Weight and Performance

published

The most satisfied iPhone ever I used. Compact size phone. One hand operation is too easy.

No complaints about performance. Superb display. Excellent cameras both rear and front.

One and only issue is battery life. It's a small phone, so battery size also small.(Apple might fix in the future) However I am okay with battery life.

Purchased in at eBay for $820.

It is not perfect; it is sometimes stuck and glitchy, so I need to shut it down forcefully.

published

The camera is ok; I would not say 100%, as I am giving 70% that some images are blurry.
I am satisfied with the durability and brightness of the display.
I use it to check email, take photos and videos, use maps, and watch TV.
Apps are not smooth as there is time to glitch and get stuck, requiring a forced shutdown.

Best size ever:

published

The size of the Iphone it’s so convenient, it fits everywhere, very easy to use and quite self explanatory. Apps Work smoothly and what I really liked is that I can easily manage it with just one hand because of the size. The camera’s quality it’s amazing the pictures that the camera takes are very clear. I use the phone for work too, an app we use and it goes well. I also use it for social media and for streaming platforms where it’s astounding the quality of the shows.

Ideal size and performance

published

I am very satisfied with the size of the phone as I have always preferred a phone that could easily fit inside a jeans pocket or a small handbag pocket. You won’t get that advantage with any other big sized phones nowadays.

I also noticed that this phone is toddler proof. The phone has withstood multiple falls without a phone cover and the screen hasn’t broken yet like my previous phones.

The camera quality is out of this world! A portrait taken with this phone is so sharp and detailed!

The only fact that I was disappointed by was that the phone does not come with charger cord, adapter and earphones.

Purchased in for $800.

For price you pay, not worth it!!

published

The iPhone 12 mini would have to be the first and only iPhone I have been incredibly disappointed with. Battery life is terrible. Photo quality is also just as bad! Battery does not last a whole day without needing to be charged and battery health deteriorated quite rapidly. After discussing with Apple Care was told that was the norm but have not had this problem with any other phone purchase. Be weary when buying this phone. Great size for small hands but if you are a constant phone user throughout the day, I do not recommend!

Purchased in at Apple Australia for $1,449.

Best phone ever! Finally a compact yet capable device.

published

This phone is everything you need and more. I have been struggling with the series of larger and larger mobile devices that have been released in recent years. For me, i don't want to carry around something huge in my pocket yet i don't want to miss out on all the tech we know and love in a modern smartphone. The Iphone 12 mini is finally the right size. Still big enough to read everything with ease yet small enough that it feels like a phone and not a laptop.

Purchased in for $1,100.

Perfect size with everything needed in the palm of my hand

published

Picked up my Jew iPhone 12 mini. Being a Tradie, opted to keep my phone compact. This has been great. Small in size but big on the essentials needed to keep my business close at hand. Battery life is exceptional compared to previous iPhone models I’ve owned. Couldn’t be happier with my purchase and would recommend this phone to others looking for quality and reliability
