I've watched a lot of iPhone 12 mini's videos before and now after purchasing this phone (bad habit of post shopping to make sure I made the right decision) and this is one of the best. Your voice is calm and easy to listen to vs the other you tubers shouting at you and then stuffing commercials in the middle (hate that). I came from an iPhone 10X that I kept hanging on to because it still worked and there were no compelling reasons to buy a new iPhone. Well with my iPhone's battery capacity slowly diminishing, the new 5G, great camera with a new (to me) wide angle camera and the small size I took the plunge. I love it! At first I thought the size would be an issue especially typing on it but you adapt. I hold my 10X now and it seem huge. This thing fits in my pocket perfect too. Funny how after we started with the original iPhone being small and then all the clammer to have Apple make a big phone like all the Samsungs at the time, we're happy with small again. So far the phone has met all my battery needs but if the battery becomes an issue I'll get one of those battery cases. So for anyone who has made it to the bottom of the rant and you can't decide, just buy it as you'll be very happy with it.

" The battery in here is a lot smaller... physically, than the other phones in the lineup." But metaphysically it is HUGE!

I am using this phone since December, about battery life with light usage sometime I go with 2 days without charge, if I play games on this, or watch movies, I have to charge this everyday. I am getting average 5-6hr screen on time. (mobile data, wifi, Bluetooth, gps are always on) with PD enabled charger, it charge like crazy. I absolutely love this tiny phone. It feels so nice in the pocket. very comfortable.

Been enjoying my Mini, coming from a 11 pro max. Swiping is easier. and It feels good in the hand.

Hey Dave, I’m a mini user here. Everything was great until the other day I was trying to shoot a video of candles on a birthday cake in complete dark. And i got this completely annoying reflection from the candles. But then I switched to wide angle lens and it was okay but not as crisp. Does it happen to you too? Thanks

The iPhone12 has a MagSafe problem. Apple warned it could interfere with a pacemaker's function. Millions of people have pacemakers implanted.

Not for people who spend all day staring at their phones, and use other devices like their iPad, or go to something else all together.... but... Definitely for the people who don’t use their phone all throughout the day, not far from a charger, or just who love small phones.

honestly apple should have opted for 720p display on 12 mini . It would have improved battrey life a bit.

I think it could get bigger battery if apple remove the wireless charging. I think alot of people will be fine with no wireless charging 🤔

He’s so right 599 for the mini and 699 for the normal one would be considered fair but we all know Apple is miles away from being fair

A smaller battery is no issue, because everyone charge their phone when going to bed anyways. If you have 10% og 30% battery left when your day is over, you still are going to charge your phone.

I just switched to a mini from a 12 Pro. VERY happy with the switch. One thing I just noticed - the camera module protrudes less on the mini. In an Apple leather case, on the Pro, the lens rings protrude past the case - when you set it down, it's resting on those rings. Not so for the mini -- they are recessed below the case, so when you set it down, it's resting on the case only. Which is a good thing.

The original iPhone SE was my favorite phone up until I got the 12 Mini. This new phone is hands down, without a doubt, my favorite iPhone yet. I have larger hands and can once again finally use an iPhone easily with one hand. The 12 Mini is just a perfect iPhone in my opinion. I'm a light user and don't have any battery issues whatsoever.

They should have made the 12 mini about a millimeter thicker and fill it up with more battery thereby boosting its battery life. That small form factor could easily afford to get thicker. Then it would have been the perfect compact flagship.

I just switched over from my 12 Pro Max to the Mini and I am absolutely loving the one-handedness and the seamless pocket-ability!! I’ve been using the big iPhones nonstop since the 6 Plus, but it sure is great coming back to this size.

The only thing that annoys me is the fact that Apple hold on the MagSafe. The magnets just waste space which they could have used for a bigger battery. With a 3000 mAh this smartphone would be a literal beast

I remember you saying you would never buy the supreme phone. The one in this video is not the same (as far as I can tell) as the one you made for the other video. Did you end up buying it, making a better clone, someone gave it to you, etc.?

Why don’t US-first tech reviewers ever talk about how long a battery lasts on a phone if you use it to make a phone call? That’s what it’s for!

Brother, I'm a little tipsy right now, but put that aside. I've watched hundreds of iphone comparison videos and review videos. Yours is by far, and not even close, the best. You don't hang up on little details, don't give side stories.. you keep it simple. I respect that shit out of that. I've only subscribed to a select few people over the years, and you're not one of my select few. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, and keep doing what you do. If you're taking suggestions, I'm looking into either buying the 11 pro or the 12 mini, so if you watned to do a video on that, that'd be lit. You're the shit bro, keep up the good work. -Your newest fan
