I would looooove to twist your arm and convince you to get the 13 mini !!! The camera is an improvement over the 12, but a bit of a downgrade from the 12 Pro. I was a little butt hurt over the weekend with some pics I took, but today I really played with the camera more. There are certain things I can’t do, like take a very close up pic because the 13 mini gets a bit blurry. But I don’t take super close up pics very often at all, so it’s not a deal breaker for me. I gave my hubby the 12 Pro so honestly I can swipe the phone from him when I want to take an extra extra type of pic that the mini can’t handle too well.
SO with that being said, I’ve come to accept the mini’s camera does what it can, very well mind you, and all the other bonuses to having it outride the camera differences. I thought about returning the phone today & I was like NOPE can’t return it I love it too much LOL.
Would I say get it….YES. If you try it out and can’t deal, return it before the 14 day return policy is expired. As for the battery, I’m not a power user, but I use my phone a good deal…the battery lasts me all day from approx 730/8am till approx 9/10pm. Do I hit the red zone on battery sometimes, yes, but I don’t panic. I always have a charger close by if I need to bump it up a bit. There’s days I use Apple Car Play in my car, so it charges while plugged in as well. So just for today, off charge at 730am, used Apple Car play today, and currently I’m at 61%.
ANYWHO…I’m not going to be the bad influence to get one…BUT JUST GET ONE
