iPhone 12 Mini vs iPhone 7 Comparison

iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone 7

As most other iPhones are, the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 7 are quite popular with users. With a sophisticated design, advanced features and excellent handling, they're certain to meet your everyday expectations.

iPhone 12 mini, the compact version

The iPhone 12 mini was designed for fans of compact smartphones. Weighing 135 grams, it measures only 131.5 × 64.2 × 7.4 mm (compared to 138 grams and 138.3 × 67.1 × 7.1 mm for the iPhone 7). Despite its smaller size, it does also come with a larger 5.4-inch screen compared to the iPhone 7's 4.7-inch display. The newer iPhone 12 mini is also more powerful. It has 4GB of RAM compared to 2GB on the iPhone 7. It also offers you a longer battery life thanks to its 2,227 mAh battery, an upgrade over the 1,960 mAh on the iPhone 7.

iPhone 7, a mini price

Released 4 years before the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 7 surely does not have the same components or the same features. However, it is still very pleasant to use and nonetheless respectably powerful. This is the case when it comes to photography. Just like the iPhone 12 mini, it has a 12MP rear camera. In the front, the lens is a decent 7 MP compared to the 12 MP on the iPhone 12 mini. The iPhone 7 does not have a rear zoom lens though, unlike the 12 mini. Several hundred pounds separate the price of these two smartphones. However, you should know that the iPhone 12 mini will be supported by Apple's iOS updates for a longer time.

If you want to enjoy Apple's updates for longer, it's best to go for the iPhone 12 mini. Released in 2020, it will still be able to install them for some more years to come. The iPhone 7, on the other hand, is the obvious choice when it comes to price. It is usually offered at under 100 pounds.
