iPhone 12 Mini review: Design, Camera, Specs, and More


iPhone 12 Mini review. The Apple iPhone 12 mini is one of the lineups of the iPhone 12 that was recently released by Apple. The phone as its name implies “mini” is a very small phone with a premium design.

This phone is the smallest of Apple phones no doubt, even when compared with the iPhone SE 2020, it is still very small. However, the good news is that the phone does not lose any of the premium qualities that were found with the iPhone 12.

Although, you will get a little improved experience if you opt for the iPhone 12 Pro or even the iPhone 12 Pro Max. All thanks to their bigger battery, powerful engines, and some other improvements.

iPhone 12 Mini Design

The design of the phone is just top-notch. And it is the best phone for those who love Apple iPhone in a smaller size. Of course, not everyone loves or is too familiar with bigger phones. Most people love small phones, so this mini phone is just the best for them.

Though it has the same design as the iPhone 12, the only difference is the size (the mini phone is smaller).

The phone displays a 5.4-inch screen with dimensions of 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4mm. It is a lightweight phone and weighs 135 grams and can be easily slipped into the pocket, however, it is not so cheap.

Like I said earlier, if you are a fan or lover of small phones, you do not need to look further. The phone is the best you can get in the lineups of the iPhone.

The power button of the mini phone is positioned on the right-hand side of the phone. While the silence switch, as well as the volume buttons, are on the left-hand side of the phone.

On the bottom, you will find the Lightning port for charging, as well as the stereo speaker together with a grille on either side of the connector.

Its colors are white, black, red, blue, green.


iPhone 12 Mini Display

Thanks to the 5.4 inches of the iPhone 12 mini as you can easily reach all corners of your phone even while using one hand.

The resolution of the 12 minis is also greater than on the Apple iPhone 12 at 1080 x 2340 which is noticeable.

The only cons about the iPhone 12 mini are that it lacks the high-refresh-rate screen and it is still making use of the 60Hz display which makes the scrolling experience less impressive.


The iPhone 12 mini rear camera makes use of two 12MP shooters and it works so well.

Its camera features a 12MP standard wide-angle camera with an f/1.6 aperture, a 12MP ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view as well as an f/2.4 aperture. But it has no telephoto sensor as on the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, meaning that any shot you zoom in won’t look so impressive.
