Pre-orders for iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max are set to go live at 5:00 a.m. Pacific Time on Friday, November 6 and just before that deadline, media sites are share their first impressions of the new device.
The Verge, Engadget, TechCrunch and Cnet all of them can make time for Apple’s smallest and largest iPhones before anyone can make a purchase. The websites don’t offer full reviews at the moment, but it is possible to visit an Apple site in New York to preview the new iPhone.
Based on The Verge, IPhone 12 mini “really” small by “the standards of the flagship smartphone of 2020”. The smaller size is easy to hold and the iOS “matches the 5.4-inch screen.”
IPhone 12 Pro Max is described as a “surfboard of the phone” just like other Plus and Max devices. Despite its large size, it “doesn’t feel too heavy in the hand” and unfortunately, Apple doesn’t take advantage of the larger screen because there is no multitasking option.
Engadget says the iPhone 12 Pro Max “feels a lot to hold,” but the stainless steel and glass feel more premium than the iPhone 12 mini. The image looks great, but it’s a controlled test area so there’s not much to glean from the camera tests at the moment.
Meanwhile, the mini fits in the hand and is easy to use with one hand, unlike the Pro Max.
Cnet call the iPhone 12 mini “the coolest of the bunch” because of the amount of features it has in a small body. It feels “incredibly small” in the hand. The IPhone 12 Pro Max “was huge, but not so weird.”
TechCrunch The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max “doesn’t seem too big” for someone who used to use larger sized Android devices, with the dimensions between mini and Pro Max being “pronounced”. The 6.1-inch average size feels like a “pretty good spot” for most users.
Full reviews of the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max are likely to launch next week before the device starts shipping to customers on 13th November. so at 5:00 am Pacific Ocean. Time is on Friday, November 6.
