    Why people are so stupid to understand that When mobile company remove some part , They save lots of money (profit) to make a product, But they are not reducing the product's price & even increasing the price. Don't talk rubbish, it's all about making profit. "Removing audio Jack, Apple make profit Not changing charging jack, Apple make profit Removing charger, Apple make profit Removing earphones, Apple makes profit Making small box, Apple make profit What consumers get ?? nothing but loosing more money, Apple knew how to make profit & empty people's wallet. People's are so fool to see that picture" "It's not innovation, it's cheating with people, the soon as people understand that, they can save themselves "

    You’ve mentioned about bigger storage for iPhone 12. Good advice but for me if anyone thinks about ip12 128gb should also take a look at pro model. Base pro 12 has 128gb better camera with lidar and stainless steel.

Leaning towards the 12, only reason im considering the pro is because its only 5 dollars more a month vs the 12 (128 gb) version i would get. Also really like the ocean blue color. Still thinking about which i should get.

    No, the 12 Mini isn't "SUPER small!" It's fucking normal sized. Everything else released in the last 7 years is stupidly large to satisfy morons obsessed with watching movies on their phones while mouthbreathing on the subway. Why should *mobile* phones, meant to be carried in the pocket, be too large for basically all pockets?

    Hold up, you say that the camera on the Pro Max is so much better, sure you get a wider focal length. However, you loose 0,2 on the f-stop value. Something to consider and a reason why the Pro may be more suitable

    you're missing another key point. iPhone 12 and mini are made of aluminum frames while the Pro and Pro Max offer stainless steel frames... as for the tech spec for all iPhone 12 collection, this website has all the details....www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_12_pro_max-10237.php and the MOST IMPORTANT is , only USA models offers both 5G Sub6 & mmWave. the international and the rest of the models only offer Sub6.

    When I watched the presentation, I hated the regular 12 colors. I always buy a case but the colors and material of the pro version were so much more attractive to me. That, the camera and the base 128gb was the enough for me to feel comfortable buying the pro.

    1. Don't buy a pro model for the best 5G performance 2. Buying the mini without realizing that the battery might be tiny 3. Buying the pro for better display, water resistance oder slimmer design (same as non-pro) 4. Buying the small pro for best camera quality 5. Not buying the cheap storage upgrade by the non-pros 6. Buying the 11 pro while the 12 has come out 7. Don't buy 3rd party QI charging accessory (QI max 7,5W) 8. Don't buy regular 3rd party case because of magsafe 9. Rumors say pro models got 6GB RAM while non-pros got 4 10. Don't buy apples 20W usb-c charger 11. When caged by verizon or at&t, don't buy unlocked 12. If you don't want to spend > $1000, do not wait for features like 120 Hz display You're welcome.

    If there's only 8 differences at $200 more for the pro. That's paying potentially $25 per additional feature added to the 12. Edit: Not accounting for storage And coming from an SE and a heavier than normal camera usage, it's worth it.

    Everyone is ranting about the battery life of the 12 mini? I'm currently using a 6s. Now I held a iphone 10/11 size 6.1inch and I just don't like the feel of it. It's so large, I just can't properly get to the corners of the 6.1 inch screen. However the battery life is kinda making my mind change. Butttt.... that 17 and 15 hour battery life... I was thinking; the 12 does have a bigger battery, but it also has a larger screen; larger screen=uses more power and 12 mini; smaller screen=using less power.. right? Doesn't that pretty much make the battery lifes the same or are my thoughts wrong?
