I realised today that I’ve been using my iPhone 13 Mini for just over 2 months and it’s totally integrated itself into my day to day carry. I wanted a smaller iPhone to help me with some RSI issues and generally be less of a pain to carry around and manage on a day to day basis.
Looking back I have no regrets. I’ve got my iPhone 5 size back and an amazing little camera.
I’ve had no battery issues and it gets me through the day fine. The only issue I’ve had is when I forgot to plug in power in the car and navigate on a long trip with Google Maps. The phone still got through a whole day but left me with 15%, which is still impressive for this size of phone.
I’ve settled on using the Apple leather case to help take some of the sharp edges away from holding it. Using the case is still fine given the size of the phone.
In the car I’m loving using the Belkin MagSafe holder, it’s really neat being able to just throw it on the holder.
I’m not sure if it’s my favourite iPhone ever just yet but I’m loving using it. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to anything larger.
