The iPhone mini was supposed to be the perfect smartphone. Which style to choose?


First the iPhone 12 mini and then the iPhone 13 mini – each looked like a really small smartphone. Is it worth choosing today? Why might the old fashioned be the best choice?

I really appreciate what smartphones offer us today, but maybe everyone is overwhelmed by constant communication or not everyone needs a laptop with a big screen. The variant of the mini iPhones from 2020 and 2021 is the answer to certain needs, which in theory were great, and in practice turned out to be quite poor. The sales of the iPhone 13 mini were so low that the processing power was transferred to other models, and this year we may not even see its successor (although the latest leak contradicted all the previous ones and maybe we will see it on September 7). .

iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini

Regardless, most people will decide between the 12 mini and the 13 mini. Both models replaced the 12 Pro in everyday use. What did I focus on? What differences are immediately visible, what should you remember? I left out one feature in the video quite carefully: the lack of a telephoto lens, which I use more often than the wide-angle one, so I would have preferred the smaller series to go the way of the iPhone X instead of the iPhone 11, but it seems that Apple has no intention of changing this.

Both types of smartphones were loaned for testing purposes by X-kom, thank you!
