Passions and criticism alike, that is the truth Apple always evokes emotions Every time new devices are introduced, this time via the iPhone 12 in four flavors that arrived later than usual but always in time for the important Christmas campaign End the year in style at least its sales before Samsung recover.

The experts said the iPhone 12 would destroy Android users, but the truth is that after their presentation they only left us with the controversial novelty of arriving without a charger or headphones, in addition to the equally common sensation that hardware and news are similar always below expectations and all Hype Media collected a priori.

One of Bosses from Redmi that only the iPhone 12 was worth it, and although it is true that the models ‘Professional’ offer interesting novelties in mobile photography, it is that too The iPhone 12 Mini is the example of what we don’t want in a small top smartphone. Do you want to know why? Follow us, here is the answer …

Apple’s “small but beautiful” cell phone, the new iPhone 12 mini, shows the (wrong) way.

iPhone 12 mini: the target of criticism of Apple and the example of why a “flagship” of this size makes no sense

I realize that When I saw the iPhone 12 mini, it seemed like a great idea at firstbecause it’s something we’ve all been asking about for a long time that Sony has researched unsuccessfully with its Xperia Z Compact, but this it could work very well in the Apple ecosystem for the symbiosis with iOS of the hardware and the generally good work of the Cupertino company.

I think the whole industry thought something similar. We ourselves praised the concept of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 even smaller than the iPhone 6 and it was aimed for a success this year, even though the empirical tests left us indifferent to a very distant reality.

The speech has been different since then the major American media You put the glove on the iPhone 12 mini, which suffers from fundamental problems that would explain why most cell phones have now switched to large format:

  • “I haven’t liked the size of an iPhone that much since I had the iPhone 5. Too bad the battery life is up.” (The Wall Street Journal).
  • “I love this phone, but we definitely can’t trust its battery.” (Engadget).
  • “I don’t want to gloss over it or be overly harsh with it, but the battery life of the iPhone 12 mini is significantly worse than that of the iPhone 12, which in turn was already below that of the iPhone 11, which is the champion in this area. The autonomy is good enough for me, but I’m already assuming that I use it differently than larger phones. “ (The Verge).
  • “Yes, I have found that the battery life in the ‘mini’ is not as good as in the 12 and 12 Pro (and in the 11 Pro, which I used for a year and the XS, which I used the year before) . But I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a 12 Mini just for this reason. The battery life of the iPhone 12 mini is good enough in the worst case. “ (Daring Fireball).

Current smartphones are not smaller because they cannot. It’s a simple matter of physics, because a very small size doesn’t fit a large battery that can keep a cell phone alive for a long time with state-of-the-art hardware.

I have the feeling Opinions are modulated by taste from the analyst himself, and it is The Verge that comes closest to the opinion I have on this case, and it is certain that we can all get used to using a smaller cellphone, a lot of people would want it, if there were, and surely everyone would be willing, perhaps, to sacrifice part of the experience and the heavier uses they would give to larger cell phones.

The trees certainly do not obstruct the view of the forest, and It is likely that the iPhone 12 mini will have sufficient autonomy for anyone who will buy itwho will surely be looking for this format right away as it is the only high end in this size today and you will already be more than aware of these issues by the time you look for it nightly daily fee which is still common for me due to my intensive use of a smartphone.

In any case, I can assure you of that now Most Android manufacturers want a model too ‘Mini’ like this iPhone 12, but almost everyone will have their tests and engineers done It would have been impossible for them to guarantee an acceptable minimum level of autonomy to market the terminal.

For me and to be honest This is another point for Apple, and not an enthusiastic review, and it’s that it showed us the way why we don’t see smaller phones in Android, and also makes sure of that Their perfect hardware and software control enables them to offer this fair autonomy for an iPhone model of this size … Do not you think?
