Unlike seniors iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, which are strongly sought, even in stock, the youngest iPhone 12 mini is not interested by many users, even the portable version or genuine VN / A.
And this is the iPhone 12 mini box (right) that you may not see on the street in the near future because most people use the iPhone 12 Pro / Pro Max. As soon as I borrowed it I noticed something strange. Compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, I understood what it felt strange at that time. This mini-box is so small that you have to cringe when standing next to the eldest brother in the house.
Apple this year removed the charger for environmental reasons, so all iPhone 12 cases are cut in half the thickness. Inside now only the device, USB-C to Lightning charging cable and instruction paper.
Here’s the iPhone 12 mini: Surprisingly small!
Previously I used to try the iPhone SE 2020 and thought it was quite compact, just in the hand, now this iPhone 12 mini has overtaken the Apple phone line this year. iPhone SE 2020 measures 138.4mm x 67.3mm, while the iPhone 12 mini is only 131.5mm x 64.2mm, which fits in the palm of your hand.
This is the smallest handset in size from Apple this year.
It feels very “cute” because it’s tiny in the hand, manipulating everything with one hand is also easier and you don’t worry about falling – which exists when holding oversized phones.
However, there is one thing you should keep in mind, for those with big hands, typing on this phone is not easy. For a person with a height of 1.65m like me, typing on the iPhone 12 mini is often mistaken, leading to fast chat is also very difficult. Thus, for those of 1.7m or more, it will be even more annoying.
Compared to the oldest brother of the iPhone 12 Pro Max, this youngest is a tiny baby.
The iPhone 12 mini has an aluminum bezel and looks rougher while the iPhone 12 Pro Max is a glossy steel bezel. Also because of the gloss, some users do not like the eldest brother because it is too easy to fingerprint, looks very uncomfortable. The iPhone 12 mini is the opposite, you can use the ceiling without worrying about fingerprints on this bezel.
Contrary to the bezel, the back of the iPhone 12 mini is glossy and the iPhone 12 Pro Max is rough.
The rear camera cluster is still classified in the square module, but the iPhone 12 mini has only 2 cameras and the iPhone 12 Pro Max is 3. In terms of parameters, the iPhone 12 mini has a 12 MP wide and 12 MP ultra wide camera, the camera is missing. Telephoto and LiDAR sensor as in Pro Max. The quality of the camera comparison of the two will be done in the following article.
The bottom edge of the device is also reduced by some speaker holes.
iPhone 12 mini equipped with Super Retina XDR screen with a size of 5.4 inches, while iPhone 12 Pro Max is 6.7 inches, the largest ever of the Apple family. Both screens are covered with Ceramic Shield, which according to Apple can increase the durability 4 times compared to previous generations.

Despite being the youngest, the power of the iPhone 12 mini remains the same with the Bionic A14 chip and still supports 20W fast charging. However, battery life is a factor that should be considered because of its tiny physique, the iPhone 12 mini has only a 2227 mAh battery, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max has 3687 mAh. In return, the weight of the iPhone 12 mini has been significantly reduced, only 135g compared to the oldest 228g.
Our battery life test as well as camera performance comparison will be conducted in the near future, inviting readers to watch.
