The iPhone 12 mini delivers at long last what many have wanted for years: a truly powerful, truly compact phone.
It manages to have a bigger screen yet smaller body than the recently refreshed iPhone SE.
That was, to date, the smallest iPhone you could get – but it was still using the iPhone 8 design with bezels at the top and bottom along with a home button.
The 12 mini, by comparison, is the same edge-to-edge, notched, FaceID-using design as Apple’s other iPhone 12 models.
It’s got the same squared-off redesign as the other iPhone 12 options and it reminds me quite a bit of the iPhone 5.
