Apple iPhone 12 mini Review - Small smartphone with small display

So cute! Smartphones are getting bigger and bigger, but Apple offers a real alternative with the iPhone 12 mini, which is unique in the high-end segment with its 5.4-inch screen. However, the small form factor also poses problems. Find out whether Apple's mini mix works out in this review.
Daniel Schmidt, 👁 Daniel Schmidt, Brian Burriston (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 🇩🇪 🇪🇸 ...

A total of four new iPhones were unveiled in the fall, and the iPhone 12 mini is the smallest of the new lineup which, unlike the equally compact iPhone SE, relies on an all-screen OLED display and thus has a much better display-to-surface ratio.

The equipment is very similar to the iPhone 12. It is powered by an A14 SoC with 4 GB of RAM, and the buyer has to choose between 64, 128 or 256 GB of internal storage. In contrast to the Pro models, the LiDAR sensor and the telephoto lens are not included in the camera. The cheapest model starts at 671.42 Euros (~$822 RRP net; 778.85 Euros/~$954 with 16% VAT or 799 Euros/~$978 from 2021 with 19% VAT). Our test device is the medium storage variant.

The small battery, in particular, is often criticized. We will find out together in this test whether this is really that serious and which other differences we can identify.

Case - glass and aluminum dominate the iPhone mini

Color variants
Color variants

The Apple iPhone 12 mini presents itself colorfully and is available in white, black, green, blue and red. The camera module on the back protrudes up to 1.6 millimeters (~0.06 inches) in height and ensures that the small iPhone bobs cheerfully back and forth on a flat surface. The frame is made of a matte aluminum and the front and back are made of glass.

The build quality is impeccable. The Apple phone is insensitive to twisting and only creaks minimally. The gaps are very tight and absolutely even. Furthermore, the smartphone is IP68-certified, which the Californians specify with a maximum immersion depth of six meters (~20 feet) for 30 minutes.

The red on the back of our red model is not as intense as on the iPhone SE, but looks more like coral in most light situations, which unfortunately does not show up as well in the photos, but shows better in the video below. Compared with the iPhone 12 Pro, the Mini feels tiny and fits easily in the palm of the hand.

Features - MagSafe also in iPhone 12 mini

The equipment is identical with the iPhone 12. The small smartphone still uses Lightning as its physical interface, which is not particularly fast in view of the data transfer speeds according to USB 2.0, but it is also compatible with HDMI and Firewire via an adapter.

Like all models of the current series, the iPhone 12 mini can also use the new MagSafe products, which are magnetically locked on the back.

Wireless communication at close range is accomplished with Bluetooth 5.0. NFC is also available for Apple Pay, but it still only works in read mode.

Software - iPhone mini without Apple ProRAW

With the current operating system version iOS 14, the iPhone 12 mini can also access the new features like the app library or widgets. During the test, the update to iOS 14.3 was already distributed, which adds Apple ProRAW for the camera and also includes support for Apple Fitness+ and the new AirPods Max headphones. However, the former does not apply to the iPhone 12 mini, which has to do without ProRAW.

In general, buyers of the Apple smartphone can expect long-term support. 

Communications and GNSS - 5G for single SIM only

The Wi-Fi module of the Apple iPhone 12 mini supports the current Wi-Fi 6 standard (IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax) with MIMO antenna technology. The manufacturer has improved the transmission speed with the latest update, but the smartphone still falls short of what is technically possible in combination with our reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12. The data reception is only on the level of Wi-Fi 5. However, this should rarely play an important role in everyday use, especially since the range and stability are on a good level.

The mobile features are very good and the iPhone mini supports a broad frequency spectrum for all standards, so it should be usable worldwide. In the test, it was unexceptional but had a good reception. However, the user has to accept restrictions in dual-SIM mode because 5G is not available then, but only LTE. The Mini also lacks mmWave antennas in this country.

The iPhone 12 mini supports the global navigation systems (GNSS) GPS, GLONASS, QZSS, BeiDou and Galileo. Whether dual-band or even tri-band support is available is not specified by Apple.

The satellite fix is quick and the smartphone makes a very good impression on our short bike tour and even records the route more accurately than the Garmin Edge 500.

Phone features and voice quality

The telephony app has a tidy design. The iPhone 12 mini supports VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling. Dual-SIM operation is also possible by using a nano-SIM card and an eSIM, but you will have to do without 5G.

The voice quality is really good when held to the ear and the user of the Apple phone is reproduced very naturally. The suppression of ambient noise sometimes takes a moment, but then works well. Even very loud noise is filtered out, but then the iPhone user sounds quite muffled and a slight background noise joins in.

The speaker works very well over short distances, but a reverb is audible from an arm's length away from the speaker.

Cameras - Good dual camera in iPhone mini

The TrueDepth camera on the front of the iPhone 12 mini has a resolution of 12 MP and can record videos in Ultra HD with up to 60 frames per second. If this is to be done with DolbyVision, the frame rate is lowered to 30 FPS. The optics are very good for selfies, which convince with a balanced image composition and only have to struggle with burned-out image areas in strong backlight in some places. It is quite amazing what Apple can achieve with its software algorithms. If you want to observe this yourself, you should take a photo and call it up directly. This is then first shown in its original state, since it takes about two seconds until the iPhone is done with the revision.

The main camera uses the same technical basis as the iPhone 12. Both lenses of the dual camera work with 12 MP, and the main camera also has optical image stabilization. Smart HDR 3 produces impressive photos with a fairly large dynamic range, especially with the main camera, which impress with a vivid color reproduction. The ultra-wide-angle lens also does a good job, but has to make concessions in terms of dynamic range and depth of field.

The iPhone 12 mini can record videos in Ultra HD with up to 60 frames per second and DolbyVision at best, which look very good for a smartphone under daylight conditions and can also convince with decent sound recording. In the dark, the HDR function visibly brightens the surroundings, but many details are lost. IOS 14.3 also adds the option to record PAL formats with 25 FPS, but unfortunately not with 50 FPS.

Accessories and warranty - The Mini also comes without a power adapter

AppleCare+
AppleCare+

The iPhone 12 mini no longer comes with a power adapter. Instead, the slim box only contains a SIM tool, a USB-C to Lightning cable, an Apple sticker, quick-start guide and safety instructions.

Optional accessories for the small iPhone ranged from power adapters and MagSafe cases to chargers and much more.

The warranty amounts to just under 12 months, which does not affect the retailer's warranty. Additionally, the insurance package AppleCare+ can be purchased within 60 days of purchase. This allows up to two repairs every 12 months for a corresponding service fee in case of unintentional damage. The insurance is available as a 24-month package for 169 Euros (~$207) or for 8.49 Euros (~$10) per month. The latter can be canceled monthly and can also run for longer than two years.

Input devices and operation - MagSafe and Face ID for the iPhone 12 mini

Those who have already owned an iPhone Pro or larger smartphone will be surprised how small the iPhone 12 mini is. It is fantastic in the hand and fits perfectly in every pocket without being too bulky. One-handed operation is no longer a problem, and you do not even have to use the one-hand mode in many cases.

The capacitive touchscreen is protected by the Ceramic Shield surface and offers great gliding properties as well as a precise implementation of inputs. It is even possible to type quite well on the rather small keyboard.

Unlike the iPhone SE with Touch ID, Face ID is responsible for biometric security. The three-dimensional facial recognition not only works very reliably and quickly under all conditions, but is also considered secure.

There are also MagSafe magnets on the back of the iPhone 12 mini, which can be used to lock corresponding accessories like cases or chargers to the smartphone. This works quite well, even though the magnets in the mini leave a slightly weaker impression than in the iPhone 12 Pro.

Display - The Mini also relies on OLED

Subpixel structure
Subpixel structure

The display of the Apple iPhone 12 mini measures only 5.4 inches (13.72 cm) diagonally and has a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels. The resulting pixel density (477 PPI) is very high and ensures a crisp display.

The brightness is around 625 cd/m² according to the manufacturer's specifications, regardless of whether it is a pure white surface or an even distribution of bright and dark areas (APL50). We could not reach the specified peak values of 1200 cd/m² in the test. The smartphone probably has to recognize the displayed content as HDR to be able to retrieve them. The full brightness is also available in manual mode.

HDR10 and DolbyVision support is also available. Due to the OLED panel's absolute black value, the contrast value tends towards infinity in theory.

There is flickering, as is typical for this display technology. As in the iPhone 12 Pro, the Apple phone works with different amplitude curves depending on the brightness setting.

OLED flicker at minimum brightness: 117.9 - 250 Hz

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 250 Hz ≤ 99 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 250 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 99 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 250 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9656 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

We check the OLED panel's color representation with the CalMAN analysis software. We deactivated the True Tone function, which automatically adjusts the display to the ambient light. Those who use it generally get a warmer display.

But the display is already a bit warmer without True Tone. The grayscale is on an almost ideal level and the biggest outlier in the colors is negligible with red (dE 2.06). Simply excellently calibrated.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.

The iPhone 12 mini remains perfectly legible outdoors, even though the brightness reserves are not as high as in the Pro models. This will only be noticeable on very bright summer days.

The viewing angle stability of the OLED display is on a very good level. There is only a minimal brightness loss at flat viewing angles, but no color inversions.

Performance - Apple A14 with lower GPU power

The iPhone 12 mini is powered by an Apple A14 Bionic with 4 GB of working memory, which we already know from the other iPhone 12 sister models and offers the same CPU performance despite the smaller case. The situation is different in terms of graphics performance, where it falls behind the iPhone 12 Pro by between 7% and 18% in the offscreen tests. However, since the onscreen rates are at least on the same level or even better, the reduction in GPU performance will be due to the lower pixel density.

In the comparison field, the iPhone 12 mini clearly leads the pack, especially since the Google Pixel 5 only uses a mid-range SoC. However, the storage speed is lower than in the Pro model, which is due to the lower sequential write rates. Nevertheless, they are on a high level.

The Apple phone does not show any weakness in the browser benchmarks either and dominates the Android competition.

Games - No challenges for the iPhone

The graphics unit of the Apple A14 Bionic delivers a lot of computing power and is one of the strongest of its kind. The biggest challenge in the benchmarks, which we run with GameBench, was Asphalt 9, which drove the GPU up to a load of 82%, but bottlenecks or frame drops did not occur.

The biggest drawback in detailed games is actually the small display. Everything looks great on the screen and the inputs are also perfect, but the field of view and the display are very small.

Emissions - Thin dual speakers in iPhone 12 mini

Temperature

The surface temperatures of the iPhone 12 mini remain very low at all times and only partially crack the 30 °C (86 °F) mark even under constant load.

We check how the SoC is doing inside the casing with several stress tests. The Apple smartphone remains stable in the older T-Rex scenario of the GFXBench battery test. This also applies to the demanding Manhattan test for long stretches, but the iPhone drops by over 20% shortly before the end. 3DMark Wild Life impressively illustrates the phone's performance. Although the stability score of 69.7% leaves room for improvement, the iPhone 12 mini is four times faster than the Pixel 5 (max. 1,015 points) even in the weakest run (4,612 points).

Loudspeaker

For sound reproduction, the iPhone 12 mini uses a speaker on the bottom edge as well as that of the earpiece. These can get very loud and sound quite good at medium volume, but the mids are a bit too thin, which is why there is often a lack of power and depth.

Better sound is output wirelessly via Bluetooth, but Apple also sets very tight limits here with the support of the audio codecs SBC and AAC, which do not allow high-res audio. In most cases an optional adapter is necessary for using wired headphones.

Battery life - Not an endurance runner, but suitable for everyday use

Energy consumption

The power consumption of the Apple iPhone 12 mini is on a low level and does not give reason for criticism.

If you want to supply the smartphone with fresh energy as quickly as possible, you should either use a 20-watt power supply from Apple or a stronger one from a third-party supplier that has to support PowerDelivery. Wireless charging is also possible. Up to 7.5 watts can be pumped into the iPhone via a Qi charging surface, and up to 15 watts via a MagSafe charging surface.

Battery life

The Apple iPhone 12 mini has a 2,226 mAh battery. It is certainly not possible to use it for days, but considering the battery capacity the runtimes are very good. On the other hand, they are still satisfactory and more than sufficient for one day of use when broken down to the bare figures.

Thus, users who use their smartphone a lot would be well advised to have a small power bank with them.

In the test: Apple iPhone 12 mini
In the test: Apple iPhone 12 mini

With the iPhone 12 mini, Apple impressively demonstrates that a high-end smartphone does not necessarily have to be big. However, the smaller space also has its limits and forces the Californian's smallest smartphone to compromise on battery capacity in particular. Nevertheless, the Mini manages decent runtimes, although the need for charging will likely be required by evening.

There are no other restrictions compared with the iPhone 12. On the contrary, the lower weight helps the smaller smartphone to score better in the overall rating. The dual camera delivers good pictures and only the optical zoom and ProRAW are not available compared with the Pro models.

Cute, sweet, or tiny are the first associations with the iPhone 12 mini, but the smallest smartphone in the series is technically a heavyweight.

Technically, Apple does a lot right, but the lack of 5G in dual-SIM mode is incomprehensible. The weaker GPU performance is not a problem in everyday use because less of it is needed due to the lower number of pixels.

The iPhone 12 mini is certainly the smartphone that some already expected with the iPhone SE and is only slightly larger than the popular iPhone 5s. Fans of compact smartphones can grab this one without hesitation.

As a child I was fascinated by my Commodore 16, and this sparked my enthusiasm for computers. Using my first modem, I surfed the BTX videotext system and later the World Wide Web. I have always been captivated by the latest technologies, and this is especially true for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. I’ve been part of the Notebookcheck team since 2013 and have also on occasion written for Notebookinfo.de, and I’m looking forward to testing new innovations for our readers. I like to spend my spare time indulging in photography and barbecues and being with my family.
