iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone 13 mini Comparison

iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone 13 mini

Released a year apart, the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini are small in size but big in performance. Both are packed with Apple's advanced features, and their size sets them apart from other Apple smartphones. If you like compact models, you'll love these two devices. Find out here how to choose between them.

iPhone 12 mini, a successful ergonomics

The iPhone 12 mini is 5 grams lighter than the iPhone 13 mini, but still has the same screen size of 5.4 inches. It's easy to use with one hand which has its limitations if you enjoy viewing content on your smartphone. The same is true of the iPhone 13 mini. On the performance side, the iPhone 12 mini is impressive. It's smooth, even on the most recent and demanding applications. It also has a 12MP camera, like the iPhone 13 mini, but it struggles with storage capacity. It is available in 64, 128 and 256GB versions. The iPhone 13 mini, on the other hand, is offered with 128, 256 or 512 GB. The iPhone 13 mini price is £416 for the 128GB version on Back Market.

iPhone 13 mini, a stunning screen

Continuing on from the iPhone 12 mini, the 13 mini is also very nice in terms of ergonomics. It is easy to hold, compact and light. However, it differs from its predecessor in terms of the quality of its screen. Its OLED Super Retina XDR panel is a certain improvement, offering great brightness even in direct sunlight. It also has double the maximum storage capacity (512GB vs 256GB) compared to the iPhone 12 mini.

The iPhone 12 mini and 13 mini are both designed for users looking for compact smartphones that don't compromise in performance. The newer iPhone 13 mini stands out thanks to the quality of its screen and its doubled storage capacity. It will suit anyone who uses their smartphone intensively.
