iPhone 12 mini Review | Trusted Reviews


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

Great to see phones this size make a return;No feature sacrifices for the smaller display;Great camera with excellent video;Lovely new design

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

iPhone 12 mini review


The iPhone 12 mini is a dainty (yet powerful) delight

Smaller design looks great ; Fantastic display ; Futureproofed with 5G

64GB isn’t enough for some ; Wireless charging is slower ; Middling battery life

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 little iPhone that could


It's the littlest iPhone since the SE in 2016, but Apple is keen to prove that good things come in small packages

Portable size ; Excellent screen ; Relatively affordable

Mediocre battery life

The 12 mini is the best of both worlds, combining the all-screen design of recent iPhones with the petite chassis of the older ones. It also happens to be brilliantly featured and specced, with superb cameras and processing power to burn.
