Apple iPhone 12 Mini review: Tiny yet mighty


The iPhone 12 Mini is delightfully small, yet provides a complete experience with exceptional hardware, features, and camera quality. It's the best small phone.

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

Weak battery life ; Screen can actually feel cramped

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

Apple iPhone 12 Mini review


Apple's mini iPhone packs a mighty AV punch

Excellent OLED picture ; Entertaining sound ; iOS as slick as ever

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.

Apple iPhone 12 mini review: fit to size


Apple finally made a small iPhone again. Except for battery life, it's great.

Excellent camera ; Small with great build quality ; Fast

Battery life is below average ; Is mmWave 5G really necessary? ; 60Hz screen is behind the competition

Apple’s iPhone 12 mini has all the power and performance of its larger sibling, the regular iPhone 12. But having a small screen also means that there’s a smaller battery, so battery life does take a hit.

iPhone 12 mini review: a pocket-sized powerhouse


The iPhone 12 mini is a bite-sized beast

Tiny but mighty; Beastly performance ; Cute and compact ; Mid-range pricing ; Nostalgic design

So-so display ; Mediocre battery life ; No power adapter

The iPhone 12 mini is a powerful, pocket-sized phone, but battery life is curtailed by its cute, compact chassis.

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 Review – Small Surprise


The iPhone 12 mini has no right being the cheapest model in Apple's iPhone 12 family. Sure, on paper you're spending the smallest amount on the smallest display, but – like the mo…

Small size without power compromise ; Same great cameras as on the iPhone 12 ; 5G supports fastest mmWave - if you can find it

Battery life could be better ; No 120Hz display

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
