729 for this iphone 12 mini in the 64 gigabyte variant 829 for the normal 12. let’s go ahead and get into this we’re going to take a Look at the sizes, as well as just this cool new purple, color from apple that we got for spring, so of course, in the box right away. What are you going to get butt deep purple iphone and how does it look? How does it look in person? Well, i can tell you it’s slightly more lavender esque it’s, slightly brighter than the previous purple that we got but right now, if i had to pick a color for the iphone 12. Just based off of this impression, i would buy this purple iphone 12 and uh. Mainly because it’s a newer, color and also because i’m, i like blues a lot and i don’t like the iphone 12 blue, and this is really close to like a bluish, lavender ish purplish kind of hue – that i really really like. Let’S go ahead here and open the 12 box and pull that out. Of course, the exact same thing just slightly larger there and you can kind of just right off the bat, see the different size there. On my hand, here are the sides here which are, of course, aluminum, and i love that i hate that my iphone 12 pro has the stainless steel sides. I, like the benefits that it has. I don’t like the way that it feels i just love.
The cold touch aluminum here on the sides and it’s a really really nice purple on the sides. I would say this is a nicer purple on the sides than the previous purple. We got from apple, so keep in mind if you like the last one. I think you’ll like this one, just as much, if not more than the previous one, i think it’s a really stunning color and it really complements the design of the 12 and the 12 mini. So here, of course, we got the front let’s go ahead and remove this and there we go so you can kind of see it from the front. If you want to see the purple outline there on the sides, it looks really really really really nice. Also, like the wallpaper at the bottom, has this purple tint to it, which looks great with the purple phone so yeah. If you’re looking into the colors for the iphone 12, i say like straight up: just bring this one right up to the top of the list which, whatever your favorite colors, consider this one as well, because it looks magnificent, just stunning, stunning, stunning, smudges, definitely kind of Noticeable as noticeable, of course, as the 12 in the black or anything like that, but i can definitely see them there under this lighting here, but not the worst thing in the world very easy to clean and uh. Not super super noticeable in case you’re wondering what else is in the box.
You are just gon na get a usbc to lightning cable, then designed by apple in california, and then a sticker back here, which would have been cool. It was purple given that this is kind of a new color for spring, but yeah, nothing special in the box. You do have to buy that wall adapter separately or use one that you already have so let’s talk sizes in case you are already settled on a color this one or another one. Are you wondering between the 12 mini or the iphone 12? Well, i think, for most people i would say get the 12 mini. I would get it if my hands weren’t just a little bit too big for the device that kind of cramps my hands out when i’m using it. I love the size. I love it in my pocket and all that, however, when i use it for an extended period of time, my hands begin to kind of feel like this. Like i kind of get this like it’s just a little bit too small, you can kind of see that there, if i cup it and i go to text with two hands, it looks a little bit small in my hands and it feels a little bit smaller. In my hands, the one right here, the iphone 12 normal size, which is the 12 pro that i have the same exact size – is perfectly fine like it’s a nice in between between the max and the mini.
Do i wish it was a tiny bit smaller? Yes, i do. I think that the perfect size for me of all time was the iphone 10 size, which was just a slightly smaller screen. It was like right in between this 12 and the 12 mini, but this is close enough to that and uh. It feels pretty good in my hands. It doesn’t feel perfect, like that iphone 10 did, but it feels good enough and uh yeah. I would love to have one of these mini devices, so if you can and your hands feel comfortable with a smaller phone, then definitely think about getting a smaller device. It’S easier to carry fits in pockets fits in like almost any purse pocket or bag, and it doesn’t take up a ton of space if you’re working out with it in your pocket. It doesn’t feel like a paper wit in your pocket, it’s, nice and lightweight, and it still has as good of a camera and everything as the normal 12.. So you’re not missing out on any features, maybe except for a slightly better battery life, but with wireless charging. With fast charging nowadays, i i don’t see that as a problem like at all – and some people give you the excuse – well, the mini doesn’t quite charge as fast with fast charging as the larger 12. Yes, but i don’t see that as a problem at all again uh, i just don’t, consider battery life a problem anymore over the past year and a half or two years that we’ve gotten iphones, really not a problem.
Now, in case, you’re wondering how these look when you’re, actually talking or texting, or anything like that here, i’m, showing a clip from earlier today. I did have to refilm this whole video right now at night, because when i went to edit, my audio system had actually completely broken and uh. None of the audio was properly recorded and that sucks. So i can’t really redo the same test right here at three. In the morning, because the light’s – just not as good and you’re not going to be able to see the color so i’m, showing you these clips here of kind of texting calling and just so, you can get a better vibe on the overall purple color again, not Much to say on this color, except for the fact that it’s, stunning and uh, you should basically go out and get this color if you’re kind of just not really settled on any color at all, just get the purple one enjoy this cool new color. It has a very nice vibe to it. It feels energetic not too showy. It doesn’t attract too much attention, it’s the right mix between like fun and serious and a very nice kind of design. Color so definitely consider this one. I would say that my favorite iphone 12 colors right now are the purple the white followed by the red color all right now, let’s go ahead and move on to the cases segment, this isn’t really to advertise any cases it’s not to sell you any cases.
This is literally to give you an idea of how the color looks in cases, so you can kind of make a decision or just get more of a vibe for the color. If you are interested in any of these cases, i’ll have the links down below in the description, but again not getting paid by any of the people with behind these cases, here is just a matte black case on the purple. You can see this very light. Purple finish here on the camera, which looks stunning and it almost looks like a blue, i would say this is more lavender than anything. This would have been a great color to just call lavender it just works really well and just looks really really nice and you can see that works well with this black. I think this is actually how i would sport it. This matte black finish just looks great on top of this purple. We have that one here for the mini, and then we have this purple case for the mini and here you’ll be able to kind of see the difference between actual purple versus the purple or lavender. We get on the mini, so we put this here and then we snap this and kind of snap all pieces in place here and there you go sorry for any fingerprints or anything that you might be able to see. But hopefully this gives you an idea here. You can see this purple there and this purple look nothing like the iphone purple, and this purple case almost makes the phone look like a really light blue or something yeah, almost like a fabric, softener color like downey, or something like that, but yeah it’s.
Just a really nice shade of purple, i think a lot of you are really really going to like it and let’s move on to the next cases here that are for the slightly larger device here. Alrighty then a kind of another matte finish case there with a slightly more translucent back. So you can see the logo a little bit better still looks great and you can just see that that purple color just matches really well with this. Here we have black and clear get an idea of that mm. Hmm looks really good let’s keep moving along. I think it just tends to match blacks and whites very nicely. So if you put a white case so like you know, this has a white border on it, it matches really nice with the purple and then, when you put a black case, it also does match really well. This is going to go with a lot of cases. Can you put a yellow case on this? Not really, but i guess you could but it’s not going to look as great as let’s say, the white phone or the black phone with a yellow case. So really just depends there. We go with a clear magsafe. Looking case looks really really good really like that. Last but not least, we have two leather cases, just to kind of just show that it doesn’t look terrible. I don’t think it looks great, but you could definitely support that and then blue a really deep blue here with that purple showing which i actually think works, really well and uh.
There you go. Hopefully, this all gives you an idea of the purple iphone 12 and 12 mini.
