  • A year or two ago I would've been absolutely psyched about the 12 Mini, would've bought it immediately. At this point I've spent years really trying to make myself comfortable with bigger phones and letting go of my SE (1st gen), even taking it into account when choosing clothes and accessories, so I don't care anymore. I use the thing for photos too much to care about having something smaller than an 11 Pro at this point.

  • I'm gonna upgrade from the original SE to the 12 mini😎 been using the SE for 4 years, still holds on good and it runs iOS 14. It's not perfect, and battery drains A lot. So it's time for me to upgrade and been saving money for three years.

  • I quite literally developed tenosynovitis in my hands from running holding my 10. I already have the 12 pro. It feels too heavy, too big, too everything. I'm 90% sure I'm going to be swapping to a mini when they get released. I don't have the largest hands either.
