iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone 11 Comparison

iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone 11

Smaller than the iPhone 11, the iPhone 12 mini is still a premium smartphone. Both are equipped with reliable, high-performance processors and allow you to take advantage of Apple's latest software. To decide between them, take a look at some of the differences.

iPhone 11 vs 12 mini size comparison

Obviously, the big difference is the iPhone 12 mini size vs iPhone 11. You get a 5.4-inch OLED display with the iPhone 12 mini and a 6.1-inch LCD display in the iPhone 11. 

The iPhone 12 mini weight is a modest 135g compared to the 194g of the iPhone 11. That gives you an idea of size differences: 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.3mm iPhone mini 12 size vs 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3mm with the iPhone 11. 

Looking at the iPhone 11 equivalent in the 12 series, an iPhone 12 and 12 mini size comparison is similar. The iPhone 12 measures 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4 mm, weighs 164g and has a 6.1-inch OLED display.

iPhone 11 vs 12 mini price UK comparison

The iPhone 11 price was starting at £729 at its release, and the iPhone 12 mini started at £699. Both, therefore, compete in terms of new prices, but it's a different story when you look at the refurbished prices.

The iPhone 11 is available on Back Market in refurbished condition for as low as £249, and the iPhone 12 mini is £319. Both are available for over 50% off compared to their brand-new price so both are a great deal -- but the cheaper refurbished iPhone is the iPhone 11. 

iPhone 11: one of the brand's bestsellers

True to the brand's usual aesthetic, and available in different colours, the iPhone 11 has won over many users. It has a lot to offer: a 6.1-inch screen (compared to the 5.4-inch screen of the iPhone 12 mini), a 12MP dual-lens camera system, 4GB of RAM and the powerful A13 processor. It is therefore perfect for both classic and intense use cases.

iPhone 12 mini: a concentration of performance

The iPhone 12 mini weighs just 135 grams and has a 5.4-inch OLED display. The colour reproduction is excellent and allows you to fully enjoy looking at your photos and videos. Only its size could pose an issue to your experience if you're used to bigger screens. In terms of performance, it improves on the iPhone 11 thanks to the presence of the more recent and slightly more powerful A14 processor, same as on the iPhone 12. This means you'll get a smoother, faster experience when using your favourite apps. It's also the only one of these two models that can be used with 5G service plans.

Comparable in terms of price and performance, the main difference between these two smartphones is the size of the screen. If you like viewing content on your smartphone regularly, the iPhone 11 is the better choice. For others, the iPhone 12 mini will live up to your daily expectations, and it'll be less bulky in your pocket
