the iPhone 12 mini is an instant recommendation to anyone who really wants high-end phone features in a smaller body.

Battery life is notably worse than other iPhone 12 models;Notch seems more irritating on the smaller screen;You'll want to buy a charger separately

Apple iPhone 12 mini review: Appreciate the little things in life


It might be mini by name, but the Apple iPhone 12 mini is mighty by nature. It will make you appreciate the little things in life. Here's our review.

Lovely compact design ; Beautiful display ; Great cameras ; Fluid performance ; 5G connectivity ; MagSafe charging (optional)

Battery life not amazing ; No telephoto lens ; Design catches fingerprints easily ; No wall plug in the box

The smallest of the iPhone 12 range, but the mini is a fantastic little device that shouldn't be underestimated. Its lightweight and compact design, stunning display, great cameras, and smooth performance are all big plusses. Its battery life isn't...

Apple iPhone 12 mini


Apple's made small phones before but not an overtly compact flagship. With little competition, the iPhone 12 mini is the best small phone you can buy

Apple iPhone 12 Mini review


It's the little things

Great camera ; Compact size ; OLED screen ; 5G

Battery life ; 64GB is a bit measly for some

A mini marvel with all the performance high-hats as its larger sibling

Apple iPhone 12 mini review: Small and perfectly formed


The perfect phone for those who prefer a smaller phone: wonderfully compact and a superb all-rounder

Compact and pocket-friendly ; More powerful than most flagship Android handsets ; Ceramic shield glass keeps scratches at bay

Short battery life ; Still quite expensive

Battery life will, ultimately, be the deciding factor for most people. This means that the iPhone 12 will remain the most practical choice. It’s more expensive, but its bigger screen and larger battery give it the edge for me.

iPhone 12 Mini review


The iPhone 12 Mini is the smallest high-end phone you can buy, and that's reason enough to buy it if you like compact handsets. But it also has a lot more going for it, including top-tier power, 5G, great cameras, an excellent screen, and a premium build.

The iPhone 12 Mini is a true flagship that’s truly compact. So if you’d rather have a hand and pocket-friendly screen than an expansive one, then this is the phone for you.

Incredible compact size ; Great camera quality ; Top-notch performance ; Every iPhone 12 feature

Weak battery life ; Screen can actually feel cramped

Apple iPhone 12 mini Review


Perfect hand-friendly form factor ; Excellent performance ; Better battery life than other small iPhones

Shorter battery life than larger iPhones

Apple's iPhone 12 mini delivers the best price-to-power ratio of any 2020 iPhone, bringing top-of-the-line features to a phone that easily fits into smaller hands.
