The mini = iPhone 12
Apple’s new approach to iPhone 12 series is very clear. Coming with the smaller iPhone — The iPhone 12 mini and going all the way to max ( Apple’s biggest iPhone ever ). The iPhone 12 mini has all the same features as the larger iPhone 12.

The mini battery life
The iPhone 12 mini is small, the iPhone 12 mini internals are small meaning the battery is also small resulting in average battery life, don’t get me wrong the battery life is good for a normal user but if you are a heavy user like me who game a lot and shoot photos battery life sucks. Plus Apple iPhone 12 Mini has a slower MagSafe wireless charging speed than other models.
iPhone 12 mini vs iPhone SE 2020
If you are looking to buy a compact iPhone you do have another option in the form of iPhone SE with a really lower price tag compared to iPhone 12 mini in India which one should you go for. Well, it’s all depends upon you. If you are looking for a modern compact iPhone the 12 mini is for you, unlike other small phones, Apple isn’t putting worse parts in it. On the other hand, iPhone SE ( 2020 ) is a phone that is made for the budget. End of the day it all depends upon you.
