  • Everyone is ranting about the battery life of the 12 mini? I'm currently using a 6s. Now I held a iphone 10/11 size 6.1inch and I just don't like the feel of it. It's so large, I just can't properly get to the corners of the 6.1 inch screen. However the battery life is kinda making my mind change. Butttt.... that 17 and 15 hour battery life... I was thinking; the 12 does have a bigger battery, but it also has a larger screen; larger screen=uses more power and 12 mini; smaller screen=using less power.. right? Doesn't that pretty much make the battery lifes the same or are my thoughts wrong?

And even if you were referring to the 11 vs 12 we're still just talking 0,7-0,9 mm here.. which is barely noticeable. Also 8,3 mm is *NOT* really thick by any stretch whatsoever..

  • None of these matter much when you can consider that you can get $800 credit towards a trade in. This makes your iPhone 12 pro $200. So why not get the iPhone 12 pro over iPhone 12 or mini. Not to mention, if you’re a T mobile subscriber, don’t even bother upgrade to a 5G smartphone because their 5G network is mainly sub 6Ghz 5g. This is barely faster than 4G LTE. ATT & Verizon has sub 6 & mmWave, which the iPhone 12 supports.

  • Why would you upgrade the storage on the 12 when you can just get the 12 pro that comes with 128GB for not that much more? Dumb. For the unlocked version it's only $120 more and you get 2GB more RAM, brighter display, stainless steel instead of aluminum, extra camera, LiDAR, night portrait mode, 60 fps Dolby vision HDR vs 30 fps, and different colour choices.

  • I’m just very torn... I’ve loved the gold color on iPhone for the longest time and my heart was set on the Pro model but you make very valid points. The Pro Max would only be $100 more and I’d get an even better camera.. I just don’t know if I’d like the 6.7 inch screen. And then on the other hand, I could save $100 with the normal 12 model but it doesn’t come in the gold color that I had wanted.... really stuck on which one I should pick.

  • what i’ve come to learn is if you’re thinking of keeping the phone for more than 4 years just buy the newest most expensive one cause it’ll be worth it in the long run, now i’m not implying that if you buy the less expensive ones you won’t get the same amount out of it but when paying $1000+ your expectation gets higher and apple delivers if your planning on switching then just get the pro version of the base model

  • I’m gonna have to disagree with you on mistake #6. Doing a side by side comparison between a 11 pro and a 12, you’ll find the “enhancements” don’t warrant the price tag, especially given peak brightness vs “typical” use brightness. The 11 pro has a typical brightness of 800 nits vs the 12’s 625 nits typical use, but it does edge out the 11 when in HDR mode at 1200 nits. If you’re new to iOS, then sure. If you upgrade annually, then this year is not worth the upgrade.
