Apple has been busy with its 2020 line of phones. By adding an extra device to the usual three options, the iPhone 12 range offers many choices.
But if you’re leaning towards the smaller (and cheaper) side of the lineup, should you opt for iPhone 12 deals or the soon to be released iPhone 12 Mini instead?
With a pre-order date of November 6 set in stone, it really won’t be that long before the Mini will be on sale. And if deals on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro have been any indication, retailers will flock to offer the most unique promotions.
While the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini share many of the same specs, both with 5G, the A14 Bionic chip, Magsafe features, OLED displays, and more, two main factors separate the two handsets: price and size.
With a $ 100 / £ 100 price difference, the iPhone 12 Mini is comfortably below the iPhone 12, making it a lot lower than what the iPhone 11 deals cost at launch. And, love it or hate it, the iPhone 12 Mini has a fairly small 5.4-inch.
That makes it much smaller than the usual mammoth-sized 5G phones even smaller than last year’s Samsung’s S10e. While that will feel uncomfortably small for some after a lifetime of large handsets, it will be a dream to others.
Since the iPhone 12 and Mini share so many specs, the decision ultimately comes down to your size preference and how much you’re willing to spend.
