    About the Mobile Phone

    iPhone 12 mini Pros & Cons

    The iPhone 12 mini fills a market need, and many consumers who want a tiny flagship-level phone will be thrilled with it. This model may be a decent upgrade for folks who prefer the size of prior iPhones. With the exception of a smaller battery and slower wireless charging, you get virtually all of the same flagship characteristics as the iPhone 12. The display is smaller but just as packed, with outstanding quality. The phone’s performance is likewise excellent, albeit it can get a little warm when pressured. With both its back and front cameras, the iPhone 12 mini can shoot excellent images both during the day and at night. Night mode is available on all cameras. Games and movies aren’t very engaging on the smaller screen, but the iPhone 12 mini is enough for casual daily use. iOS 14 is clean and fast, and you’ll get free upgrades for the next few years.

    iPhone 12 Mini Price in India

    Apple iPhone 12 Mini is more of a budget iPhone with a price tag of $699 for the 64GB variant and the price bar will rise up accordingly with the increase in the storage capacity. The 128GB variant is available at $749 while the top-end 256GB will set you back $849.

Following the recent 2021 September Apple event, the iPhone 12 64GB model is now priced at Rs. 59,990, the iPhone 12 128GB model has a price of Rs. 64,900, and the iPhone 12  mini 256GB model is at a price of Rs 74,990.

    The all-new flat frame design was all over the talk with the launch of this new lineup. The so-called flat frame design is somewhat similar to the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4. As opposed to this, wet framed shapes are something that we have seen ever since the launch of the sixth-iteration of iPhones. The iPhone 12 Mini also comes with a thinner form factor measuring just about 7.4mm thick. The device boasts an aluminium design as opposed to the iPhone 12 Pro stainless-steel frame.

    The iPhone 12 Mini comes with a smaller 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR display making it the smallest new iPhone since the launch of the 2017 iPhone 8. With the new series, Apple has decided to go with the superior OLED panels that deliver deeper blacks, perfect contrast, more vibrant colours as well as lower power consumption. The new Super Retina XDR panels offer a 2 million-to-1 contrast ratio and immersive HDR viewing experience. Sadly, Apple is still stuck with its notched display and haven’t adopted the new punch-hole trend. With that said, you’re still looking at a beautiful display irrespective of the size.

    The performance of all the four iPhones in the lineup will see a drastic improvement thanks to the new A14 Bionic chip which comes with 5nm fabrication. The latest-gen of chipsets seems to offer 20% better performance in single-core and a whopping 28% faster in multicore. These stats are taken from the GeekBench listing of the device.

    Apart from the SoC, 5G support is one of the significant addition to the lineup that will make it stand apart from the previous-gen of iPhones. For 5G connectivity, Apple has used Qualcomm’s X55 5G modem chipset that supports 7Gb/s download speed and around 3Gb/s upload speed. It is worth noting that the iPhone 12 Mini will have a sub 6Ghz 5G meaning it will not be as fast as mmwave tech.

    The iPhone 12 Mini will feature a dual-lens camera setup on the back with a regular wide-angle and the other being the ultrawide angle lens. Both the lenses are of 12MP. One big letdown in the iPhone 12 Mini is the missing lidar sensor which is featured in iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The front-facing camera has a minor but quite helpful addition. The device comes with Smart HDR 3 that uses ML to tweak white balance, contrast, texture and more on its own.

    We’re talking about the support of wide-angle support of Face ID. This means that you might be able to unlock your device even though the device is sitting flat on your desk.

    As the iPhones are getting thinner the size of the batteries is also taking a major hit. The iPhone 12 Mini is packed with a battery of 2,227 mAh battery which is something we rarely see nowadays. Considering the new chipset is power efficient and we’re looking at a small OLED panel, we think that this much battery should last for an entire day on a single charge

    If you’re looking for a smaller but flagship iPhone, then iPhone 12 Mini is worthy of your attention. Even though the size is smaller, you are still getting the powerful A14 chipset that is on the premium offering such as iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. Apart from size, you are getting some solid specifications taken right from its bigger brothers. From camera to battery backup, the device should be able to suffice your needs without giving you a hard time.
