The iPhone 12 mini is an appreciated addition for those of us who prefer the simplicity of iOS and the inter-connectivity of the Apple ecosystem. Often what drives us to the Apple product line is the superior software experience and the way each iPhone interacts with each other.
Unfortunately, Apple’s least expensive and most bare bones option this time around is forced into having features that drive up the total cost of the product.
Typical users arguably only need one camera, and likely won’t see the difference between a Retina and Super Retina display. Especially for those who are interested in the smallest display available on the market, these users are pigeonholed into an even bigger display with no other option.
Because past generations are not struggling at all for the vast majority of users’ demands, the general experience of using an iPhone 12 mini will not significantly differ from that of an iPhone 8.
Specifically, I think a user who has been holding on to an iPhone 6 or 7 for the past five years would get much more value out of the iPhone 8 considering that high quality used devices are selling for about $250, and prices are decreasing every day.
