Today is Friday, November 13, which is the official release date of iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max. iPhone orders have reached customers, and Apple has begun selling new devices in retail stores.
We have seen multiple reviews of these two new iPhones from media sites, but now, ordinary customers have the smallest and largest iPhones on hand and have shared their views on the device online. Mcrums forum. For those who are waiting for their new “iPhone” or are considering buying, the impression of ordinary consumers will provide useful insights.
iPhone 12 mini
Mcrums Reader Elephantnut has many ideas to share. The flat edges form a “welcome deviation” from the round edges, but the design makes the phone look and feel thicker. White is the color of “elegant but cute”, more warm white than cool white.
The size of the display is great. Although I wouldn’t say it is within reach, it is much easier compared to a 5.8-inch iPhone. If your hand is small, the weight is lighter and it is easy to get the iphone over your hand.
True Tone seems to be more aggressive than my iPhone 8. Compared with the OLED iPhone X, my 12 Mini is yellowish/greenish when True Tone is turned off, and obviously yellowish when True Tone is turned on.
Mcrums Reader Hoobaman shared some useful photos of the iPhone 12 mini in the leather case to surprise those who want to know the appearance of the new leather case.
Mcrums Reader pinchies said that its size is good and can be typed with one hand, but entering the Control Center still “needs manual shuffling”. The screen is darker than the iPhone 11 and not as clear as expected. Mcrums Reader skyhawkmatthew disagreed with clarity, and said “The color and clarity on the monitor look great.”
Klasma, the owner of the iPhone SE before 2016, said that the iPhone 12 mini is heavier and larger than expected, and in terms of chassis size, it is not as convenient as the SE.
Other insights from iPhone 12 mini owners:
- It is so small and light, just like air
- Compared with other products in the iPhone 12 series, this notch takes up too much screen
- Compared with the old iPhone, the sound of the speaker is much better, but the sound is “thin” than the “iPhone 11”, with less bass
- The screw on the bottom of the mini does not match the color of the device
- The display is warmer than the old iPhone
- IPhone 12 mini is almost invisible in your pocket
iPhone 12 Pro Max
Mcrums Reader Vengapat9 returned the iPhone 12 Pro due to battery life issues and chose the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a larger battery. He said that mobile phones are “big as hell”, “a little bit small”, and larger screens display “even better” more information.
Mcrums Reader Gtg456x liked the larger screen size and said that it “doesn’t look big”.
I have been arguing between Pro and Pro Max. I have used iPhone for X for 3 years, but before that I have owned 7 Plus and have missed the experience of having a large screen in the past few years, but I am worried how much the size and weight of the 12 Pro Max will scare me people. Well, 12 Pro Max is here today, I tell you, this is the right decision! After only 30 minutes of use, I watched something on the iPhone X, and my goodness, the screen now looks small. How have I used it for three years? To be honest, it doesn’t seem to be that big yet. It seems to be the same as all the large phones of the past decade.
Mcrums Reader Ryancgray said that the stability of video recording is “incredible”, while Mcrums Reader lukeoneill90 said that the high-quality speakers of the iPhone 12 Pro Max are “burning fast.”
Other insights from the owner of iPhone 12 Pro Max:
- Golden is stunning and elegant
- Face ID is the same as 11 Pro Max
- Weight similar to 11 Pro Max
- It feels stronger and firmer than 11 Pro Max
- HDR video is amazing, looks very real and full of energy
- This is huge and it may take a while to get used to
