Since the release of the iPhone 12 line, Apple is offering more options for its smartphone sizes than ever before. In the image below, you can clearly see how the sizes of all current iPhones compare, starting with the iPhone 5 and ending with the iPhone 12 Pro Max. As you can see, the latest lineup complements this range perfectly.

Analysts believe the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be the most popular smartphone for the 2020/2021 season, while the iPhone 12 mini should be the second most popular smartphone. I must say that many users enthusiastically noted the return to the compact smartphone market. Plus, the iPhone 12 mini has the same features as the iPhone 12. That is why choosing one model out of the two you won’t lose anything in performance, it’s all about size. But the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max already have additional features.
The iPhone 12 mini is actually a powerful device despite having a relatively small 5.4-inch OLED screen by today’s standards. Today it is difficult to find a compact and noteworthy smartphone on sale. Yes, the 5.4-inch diagonal is not a record for Apple smartphones, but it’s worth appreciating the efforts of the manufacturer, who was able to place truly advanced solutions in a thin and compact body. When compared to the size of the iPhone 12 mini, it sits between the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 6. For some future owners, the iPhone 12 mini, with its 5.4-inch edge-to-edge display and new design, may seem like the perfect smartphone.

It seems like another miracle from Apple that the smartphone with a 5.4-inch screen fits into a smaller body than the iPhone 6 with its 4.7-inch display. Against their background, the iPhone 12 looks like a giant, but this device itself is not that big, compared to at least the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 6.7-inch screen.
Are you planning to buy an iPhone 12 mini, or would you prefer one of the larger models?
