I do not need a new iPhone.

My iPhone 11 Pro is in tiptop shape and while I prefer the boxier look of the new models, there is no new feature I find intriguing — except one. The iPhone 12 Mini‘s size.

I held it in my hands briefly and immediately loved it. It is the perfect form factor. Were it not for the missing camera and the worse battery life, I might have caved.

Instead, I tried to get a similar feeling with my current phone. By removing the Apple Leather Case. Way better. I‘m working from home for close to a year now, the risk of it dropping to the floor and shattering is very small1. But this feels less bulky in the hand. Also, this green is pretty af!

Great upgrade, great price (free), 12/10.
