Size doesn't matter: Why iPhone 12 mini is so intriguing

Cult of Mac Today
I’ve long been a fan of big iPhones (currently sporting iPhone 11 Pro Max) but I gotta admit, the iPhone 12 mini looks really intriguing.
Unlike Apple’s other small phone, the SE, the mini isn’t compromised in any way.
It packs most of the features and improvements of the other models in the lineup, including an edge-to-edge OLED screen, Face ID, an Ultra Wide camera, a 12-megapixel camera sensor, an A14 Bionic chip, 5G, MagSafe and so on.
What it doesn’t have is the fantastic camera system in the bigger Pro models. So if you’re looking for the best camera, you gotta go bigger. But for everyday use, the mini camera should be more than adequate.
Starting at $699, the mini is the first iPhone in years that truly caters to customers who want a smaller phone, without compromising premium features. It might be time to go small.
