Apple iPhone 12 Mini Detailed Review

Display

Let us start with the super Retina XDR Display -  a  5.4. “OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen that produces incredibly sharp pictures in true tone.

The technological advantage the organic diodes have is that they can emit light and do not need a backlight. It is possible to turn them off totally to give you the true black or illuminate them up to 1200 nits * for HDR content. In comparison, LCDs require a backlight for illuminating the pixels at once.

 Texts are much sharper, true-to-life photos and videos with hyper detailing (even the old ones).   Reading the screen is easy even in intense daylight, and it is easy and comfortable due to a 625 nits (peak 1200 nits) illumination. nits is the standard unit of luminance used to describe various sources of light.

Summary

Excellent OLED screen pictureperfect display good enough even under sunlight

Battery

 The I phone A 12 mini is powered by a  2227 mAh non –removable lithium-ion battery, which is not very high as per industry standards ;

 mAh – Milliamp hour is the measure of electric power over time. A 3000 mAh battery means the power a device is drawing 100 milliamps for 30 hours).

 The battery is one area where the min falls behind a little more than its more celebrated siblings, the Apple iPhone 12, the  12 Pro and the  12 Max. The physical dimension of the Apple iPhone 12 mini limits the battery size.

 It can be on standby mode for up to 15 hours (multimedia). It permits fast charging and can do 50 % of battery capacity in 30 minutes flat. It also offers an exciting feature of wireless charging.

Summary

The Apple iPhone 12 Mini battery is not comparable to the bigger version Iphone 12 but still good enough for regular use It offers an added advantage of wireless charging

Performance

The phone is powered by the A-14 bionic chip with 5 nm SoC *, the latest processor of the Apple stable, which the company claims to be the fastest in the industry. It allows a rich gaming experience at 50-60 fps.

*SoC:  System on a Chip; as in the computer motherboard, the central processor, graphic processor, and memory fused on a single chip.

Summary

The unique ceramic shield offers excellent protection against damage from drops

Camera

Photography is a pleasure with your   Apple iPhone12- mini. There are two main cameras (both with 12-megapixel resolution), one of them comes with a wider aperture to take care of your low-light shots. The new wide camera takes in almost 25% more light. Therefore, you always get a high level of detail whether you are taking a picture in the daytime or by moonlight.

The primary lens has an f/ 1/6 aperture and the ultra-wide one, f/2.4. Besides supporting an improved HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging standard, the phone also supports advanced Night Mode and Deep Fusion. With Dolby vision, you can make videos of studio standards, with recording up to 30 fps.* The portrait mode recognises people and animals and provides the right edge detection for great visuals. Even if you are not at the correct distance, you still get perfect, sharp photos because of the default photo mode.

The selfies provide true-to-life details by capturing the tone of the skin accurately. For close-up selfies, the phone creates a bokeh effect (how the lens handles the out-of-focus points of light in the frame to improve the picture quality). Apple never believed in the megapixel numbers for the camera performance (a stance taken by many brands) but has proved once again that total technology and not just one aspect of a feature can give you better pictures.

  *Frames per second, or how many video frames the camera can capture per second (In this case, 30 frames.

Summary

You are always spot on with the cameras crisp textures unbelievable details and clinical precision allow you to take your dream shots every time in daylight or the darkness of night
