What’s bigger, the iPhone 12 or the iPhone 12 mini? Well, they’re both iPhones, so they’re both small, but they certainly have their differences in size. Let’s break down the comparison between these two gadgets and see if we can figure out how big of a difference size actually makes when it comes to Apple products.
Is There Such a Thing as Too Small?
If you are in search of an iPhone with a screen size that is small enough to still be considered portable, there is no need to worry because both of these new models should satisfy this need. But which one will work best for you? For many people, there is a clear-cut answer.
iPhone 12 Mini Cons
Smaller screen can make it difficult to read articles and reply to messages. It also may be harder to take photos at concerts and other crowded events without being blocked by taller people around you. The speaker may not sound as good as its larger counterpart, which could make it difficult to hear your music or have an audible conversation during a phone call if you’re using earbuds or headphones. The camera does not have optical zoom capabilities like the 12’s does.
The battery life might be shorter than the 12’s due to more battery draining features.
You might experience hand cramps after holding the device for long periods of time due to its smaller size, especially when typing on a virtual keyboard.
It’s more expensive than the 12’s ($699).
Who Is the iPhone XR For?
Most of us who work in an office or carry around a larger bag usually have a reason to switch to either size. iPhones have gotten so big and yet, for some inexplicable reason, this new one is a bit less than half an inch shorter. I know that doesn’t sound like much but, if you’re looking at which device will fit better on your lap, it could make all the difference. The biggest drawback here is that with smaller phone designs it can be more difficult to type on and using their lack of ergonomics can result in wrist pain and muscle cramps. That’s why going with something closer to a tablet-sized design may make sense for some people.
At least then they won’t have to stretch their thumbs as far up the screen. It would also help them avoid getting a kink in their neck from bending down so low over the keyboard for long periods of time. However, we don’t know how much longer battery life would be if there was more room inside such a phone – after all, bigger batteries need more space too. Plus, not everyone needs something as large as what a 9+inch iPad Pro offers; nor does everyone want such a large display on their device.
What to consider before buying an iPhone XR
We’re just over a month away from Apple’s new release date for the 2019 iPhones. Should you wait, buy now, or buy later? I’ll break down all of your options.
You can purchase an iPhone XR and receive it in November when they’re shipping out, get it on launch day (11/2), or wait until they release a newer phone and then purchase that one when it comes out. It really depends on what you need in a smartphone as to which route is best for you.
If there’s something specific about your current phone that isn’t working well, then buying now might be the way to go since there will likely be more phones coming out soon. However, if there are no major complaints about your current phone and it works well enough for your needs, then waiting would probably be best. Keep in mind that if any more updates come up before December rolls around (iPhones with Face ID being unlocked) then we’ll have to re-evaluate this decision! There are so many considerations to make when purchasing a new device.
Common Features of all iPhones
The IPhone is arguably one of the most popular, iconic phones on the market. Since 2008, over 1 billion iPhones have been sold to date, making it one of Apple’s top-selling products. With a staggering 60% share of global smartphone sales in Q3 2018, it’s not difficult to see why.
Here are some features that both phone sizes have in common: *Super Retina Display *Touch ID fingerprint sensor *Innovative face scanning technology *Lightning port connector for charging and data transfer *A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine for processing speed and artificial intelligence capabilities *AR (augmented reality) capabilities *Accessories like AirPods, cases, and chargers *Features like Siri, FaceTime video chat software *Health app The only major difference between the two is size.
The Iphone 12 has a 4.7 inch screen while the Mini has a 4 inch screen so as you can imagine there are many people who would prefer either option depending on their needs and preferences. Some people might feel more comfortable with an extra inch or two of space when reading text messages or scrolling through social media feeds but others might find this to be too cumbersome for their taste.
Others may find that they want to utilize the increased screen size if they plan on using their device more heavily such as watching movies or playing games which require larger touch targets than what can be found on smaller screens.
If a person is looking for portability, then the Mini would be a better choice since it weighs about half as much and takes up less space in your pocket. If someone wants more information at their fingertips without having to scroll, then they should go with the larger option because even though it has a slightly lower pixel density (326 ppi), there’s still enough room to comfortably view web pages and watch videos without any fuzziness whatsoever.
Ultimately, these two phones serve different purposes. Depending on your lifestyle, these are simply two different tools to get things done that do the same thing exceptionally well.
Always On Display Feature
Both phones have a similar 5.8-inch screen, but what sets them apart is the lack of features on the new iPhone 12. This lack of features means that there is no need for a Always On Display feature, which can greatly affect battery life and performance. Plus, with less real estate to display on the display, there will be more room for other applications to live on your phone.
So does size matter when it comes to an Apple product? With these specs being so close to one another, it’s hard to determine what makes one better than the other–it really all depends on personal preference! The truth is, as long as you’re happy with your purchase, it doesn’t matter how big or small your phone is.
New Features in iOS 12
iOS 12 offers a ton of exciting new features to owners of iPhones running iOS 11. These new features are great, but they come with a high price. Not everyone can afford to buy a brand-new smartphone to get access to these features, so they are forced to wait. If that isn’t bad enough, it turns out that iOS 12 isn’t compatible with last year’s iPhone 8 and earlier models—meaning that even if someone can afford a newer phone, they have no way of getting these new features!
Some hope is on the horizon for people who want access to some of the most attractive new features coming with iOS 12. The original iPad Pro 10-inch and 12. 9-inch sizes have been replaced by an all-new size called simply iPad. It has a much more compact design than its predecessors, and the screen is closer to what we’re used to seeing on smaller devices like the iPhone XS Max. It’s also more affordable than its predecessors, which means more people will be able to enjoy what this device has to offer.
In addition, there will be three storage capacities: 64GB, 256GB and 512GB—which means you’ll never run out of space!
