Apple iPhone 12 mini Review

Score: 10.28/10

Apple iPhone 12 mini is a breath-taking iOS device launched in 2020, including a comfortable 5.4-inches screen, a Hexa-Core CPU speeding at 3100 megahertz, and two cameras, a 12 MP back camera and a 12 megapixels front-facing camera. We will get a better understanding of this cellphone's advantages when we get into deeper details.

Apple equipped the iPhone 12 mini with a Apple A14 Bionic system chip, which holds a very powerful Hexa-Core processor clocking at 3100 megahertz with a great 4 GB RAM memory. This cellphone has a 64 GB great internal memory and although it doesn't count with an external SD slot, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone doesn't feel very lightweight for a cellphone of this size, weighting 4.76 ounces. This phone is incredibly slim, being just 0.29" thick. Whereas the Apple iPhone 12 mini only has 5.18" long and 2.53" wide, it's able to fit a a 5.4 inches display. Apple made this cellphone in a variety of colors like black, blue, green, purple, red and white. Talking about its construction, this cellphone is mostly manufactured with Glass and Aluminum .

This cellphone features two cameras, a 12 megapixels back-facing camera and a 12 MP front side camera. It is capable of capturing videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) up to 240 frames per second (8 times slower ). In addition, this cellphone's camera also includes auto-focus and time lapse video.

Apple designed the iPhone 12 mini with an awesome 5.4-inches screen, and a 1080 x 2340 resolution, giving this cellphone a perfect graphical experience.

The iPhone 12 mini has Wi-Fi connection (and it can be provided to other devices acting as a wireless router), 5G insanely fast connectivity, 4G (LTE-A) super fast data connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (a lower speed 4G network) and 3G fast internet connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The iPhone 12 mini supports dual sim cards to be able to to use 2 different phone lines and even different carriers.

This cellphone uses a big 2227 mAh Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that provides this cellphone a below average battery lifecompared to other similar phones. A possible problem to consider is that this device's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts losing capacity, leaving no choice but to buy a new device or hopefully take it to an expert who can open it and switch its battery.

The Apple iPhone 12 mini also features plenty of cool features such as Facial unlock, Wireless charging system, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (enables communication with other cellphones, computers and accessories) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

Apple is selling this cellphone for $ 729, which is a quite high price for comparing with similar phones. No matter if you are an amateur photographer, want it for work, will use this phone to play games or want it mainly for social networks, you will definitely be very satisfied with it. Apple packs the Apple iPhone 12 mini with Documentation and USB-C to Lightning Cable.
