wonder if iphone mini will still be around next year? tongue.gif

i actually love it quite a lot. haha.
but my usage draws me to pro max due to the display size as i spend a lot of time playing my mobile game.

I’m also tempted to try out mini after going through several reviews. Have been using 12 pro max for 2weeks. Good for media consumption. But the small size of mini brings back memories of my iphone 5s. Feeling nostalgic really. Small battery capacity will be my key concern.

Hahaha, we are on the same boat! I’ve been using the Pro Max for the past two weeks too and about to pass the phone to my wife while I move on to either the 12 Mini or 12.. was also thinking of the 12 Mini at first (also for that nostalgia bit) but after trying the display set, I think it’s a bit difficult to type for prolonged periods and am also concerned about the perceived below average battery life. Leaning towards the 12 now but still undecided smile.gif

Buy both bro. I’m contemplating getting a mini to try out. Will decide which to sell off after picking the better daily driver. But I spent too much this month on two 12 PM (one for wife) plus accessories, hence my current dilemma.

Hahaha, no la, times are tough. Would be irresponsible to get both after getting the 12 Pro Max laugh.gif

Which colour are you leaning towards for the 12/12 Mini? smile.gif
*
Black all the way. My favourite color. If there was a black pro max I would have picked it in a heart beat. Hence graphite was my pick for pro max. Wife has a pacific blue. Urs?

What’s ur colour? U could try out both n sell the other way after that. Not difficult to let go Apple product i reckon.

Nice, haha... my Pro Max is a Pacific Blue too, wife and I agreed on that colour. For the 12 I thought for certain I’d be picking blue when watching the launch video, but having seen the real thing I’m now thinking of red or green, so we’ll see smile.gif

Blue is nice too. Gotta pay Machine a visit to get a personal feel of the small toy.

indeed after using even iphone X for so long. will still find the mini is a bit too small. haha.

Ok havent given it a try. My last iphone was 5s before i switched to android. Moved from Mate 20x to 12 pro max. Mate 20x dwarves the 12 pro max big time. Now quite keen to get my hand on mini to test. Will find time to drop by Machine.

Nope bro, very very grippy to hold on this case, perfect for my dry palms.

I actually did comparison with my aunty's original apple silicone case, I would say that i can't see any difference at all LOL!

There's only 1 downside that i hate about this case, it's a DUST MAGNET!

Texture, thickness and softness all the same?

I read somewhere that it's best to take out phone casing when charging, is that necessary ?

If u think heat dissipation is an issue, use a mini fan to blow it or charge in an air conditioned room. My two cents.

read on some blogs stating that wireless charging make battery health drop faster than charging thru cable because of the heat. how's your experience with it bro? does your phone feel hot when it is wirelessly charge?
*
I normally charge in an air conditioned room. So haven't noticed any issues thus far. Nevertheless, if you fear with will degrade your battery faster, wired charging is the way to go. Cheers mate.

Guys is it just me? I was browsing lowyat.net using an Iphone mini. But within minutes I feel giddy. Videos are ok. No such issues with my Iphone 12 PM. Anyone with such experience?

Iinm a few pages in front someone experienced the same thing as you i.e headache while using ip12 mini. I think there’s updates to the issue too. The person got a new replacement phone.

Is this a common issue? Absolutely ok with the videos. It's just normal web browsing which causes me to feel giddy. Weird!

Anyone tried the CASEIER magnetic powerbank? Is it a real deal? Is the magnet suction strong enough with case without magsafe?
