    Not being racist here...

    But the iPhone 13 video was used by an Asian (?) looking guy who delivers stuff for a living.
    (I guess Apple has also found a way to make the camera survive motorcycle vibrations, or is the bike too small?)

    While the iPhone 13 Pro video showed Caucasians and Africans making a movie.

    :whistle:

    Mm…surprised that a new Mini was unveiled. From all reports, the previous Mini sold very poorly.

    Decided that the next iPhone upgrade I'll get is probably whenever the iPhone-non-pro gets the 120ghz screens, may it be iPhone 14/15/16. Still very happy with my iPhone 12 mini as this has been the form factor of my dreams.

    I can settle for the non-mini version of what that may be. Prefer the mini, but the bigger ones are useable for me.. Except for the Pro Max ones, which are too gigantic and agaw tingin. :whistle:

    Does anyone here own a 12 mini? Planning to upgrade to a 13 mini as I want to try out a smaller form factor. I am coming from a XR. Thanks.

    What do you want to know? For starters, yes it is very comfortable to hold, it still takes the amazing photos you expect an iPhone to take, it is blazing fast like its bigger siblings, BUT the battery is a notch terrible than what you're used to. Well I'm used to bringing around a powerbank with wireless charging so it isn't much of a problem for me. :coffee:

    All points taken sir, thanks! I guess the best test is to try out a demo unit myself. Will weigh all the pros against the weaker battery life as I always carry around with me my ever trusty Anker.

    I'm using an iphone 11 & planning on switching to the iphone 13 mini when I renew. I want to switch to a smaller phone because I only want to use one hand. With the iphone 11, I sometimes tend to use both hands. Hopefully the battery of the Iphone 13 mini is better than the 12 mini. My only concern is the mini might be too small to watch videos?

    Well I can tell you that typing with one hand will be there, and it's been bliss on that part. Watching video on it is just okay, we've lived through days of watching videos on iPhone 4/5 before, so to some extent, it is plausible. Truth be told though is that I own a Poco X3 for my youtube and other video needs because I'm always distracted with notifications so this way I can watch videos seamlessly and if I need to answer a message, I can do that without pausing anything.. if that makes sense lol. For Netflix etc. and such, well I reserve that for my iPad Pro or television.
