Great compact size
Zippy processor and great screen
Fantastic value
Not as powerful as an iPhone Pro or the newer iPhone 14 mini

The iPhone 12 mini has many of the same features as the larger iPhone 12, just in a smaller package. It's 5G enabled, has a fast A14 Bionic chip, Magsafe abilities and the same great display resolution. There's also a 12MP cameras system. The reason that you'll be paying less, is that it's, well, mini. That means that the battery life is a little shorter, but it's still a fantastic, super compact smartphone.

Is the iPhone 12 mini the best value in the series?

It depends on what you want from your iPhone, but its relatively low price and comparable features to the standard iPhone make the iPhone mini a great value option. Some will want a larger screen for while for others a 5.4-inch display is just fine for watching all the TikTok and YouTube clips they like.

If you want a larger screen, and longer battery life, then obviously you should look to the iPhone 12, or even the iPhone 12 Pro, but the best iPhone 12 mini deals will get a device that has 5G, a top processing chip and the same dual 12MP camera set up as the larger iPhone 12 for a great price.
