At Apple, if you want to buy a compact iPhone, you have to go to iPhone SE 2022. However, this model offers a dated design, which is not to everyone’s taste with large borders around the screen. Fortunately, it is possible to turn to the Mini range which is sold today at low prices. This is the case of the iPhone 12 Mini, currently on sale at minus 44%.

Why choose the iPhone 12 Mini?

  • It offers a small format with a quality Oled screen
  • It always delivers great performance: A14 Bionic
  • It is compatible with MagSafe wireless charging

With a starting price of 809 euros for its 64 GB version, the iPhone 12 Mini is now a more accessible smartphone. It is moreover proposed on sale at 449.99 euros on the Rakuten website.

Apple iPhone 12 mini refurbished at the best price?

A still powerful little iPhone

Released in 2020, the iPhone 12 Mini still has some good leftovers. It still appeals for its small format, similar to that of the iPhone SE 3, but whose front face is more pleasant to look at with its thin borders. It is also comfortable in hand thanks to its 5.4-inch screen and slips easily into your pocket. Unlike the iPhone SE (2022), it has an Oled Super Retina XDR panel and therefore offers better contrasts and more vivid colors than the SE 3 model which is confined to LCD.

The latest SE is equipped with the A15 Bionic chip, and is then slightly more powerful than the 12 Mini integrating the A14 Bionic chip. It is still convincing and efficient on a daily basis. The user experience will be fluid: whether for multitasking, running demanding applications or 3D games. Then, with iOS 16, you will benefit from the brand’s latest software innovations, with an interface that is always pleasant and easy to use. Note that the 12 Mini also has compatibility with the 5G network.

Beautiful photos, but poor battery life

Compared to the SE 3, the iPhone 12 Mini is more versatile, with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and a wide-angle. It offers beautiful shots, even after dark. On the video side, the smartphone is capable of recording videos up to 4K at 60 frames per second or even in HDR Dolby Vision up to 30 frames per second.

As for autonomy, the 12 Mini is not a champion in the category. The reason: its small size. According to the Californian firm, it can last for 15 hours of video playback and 50 hours of audio playback. In fact, it lasts a whole day, if and only if your daily use is moderate. Fortunately, it supports fast charging and wireless charging via MagSafe. With a 20W USB-C charger, it took 30 minutes to recover 60% power. Note that you only have the USB-C/Lightning cable to charge the device (no power adapter in the box).
