The last iPhone I owned was a 3GS over 10 years ago, ever since I had switched to Android and was hesitant when looking for a new one if I should switch back. My boyfriend convinced me and I boy am I glad- this is a great phone!! The color is beautiful and so cute, I got a clear case for the first time to show it off. The size is just right imo, as phones just keep getting bigger and bigger nowadays...the mini really appealed to me because of this. I'm someone with small hands so this wasn't a problem for me at all. Not to mention the amazing speed of iOS and the incredible cameras, this phone has it all! Not having a home button takes some getting used to, but I love that the screen is edge-to-edge. All around, I'm so happy I got this phone and honestly don't think i'll be upgrading for a long time after as for me, it's perfect.

What can you add to this product. Never thought I needed this and now I can’t live without it. Pilots pal
great phone at a terrific price. glad I waited till my old 5s died to take advantage of this offer. super nice camera and many other great features. much more user friendly than old phone. best buy was the best place to purchase in my opinion. patient customer service rep. excellent service. Had a small issue which they bent over backwards to correct and make me a very contented customer. thanks Best Buy
COULDN'T BE MORE PLEASED. I WENT FROM AN IPHONE 7 TO THE MINI AND IT'S GREAT. I DIDN'T WANT TO CARRY A HUGE PHONE SINCE I CAN DO THAT ON MY COMPUTER. I LIKE THE SIZE (JUST 1 INCH SHORTER THAN THE IPHONE 12) AND HAS ALL THE OTHER WORKINGS. BEST BUY WAS GREAT HELPING TO TRANSFER MY DATA TO THE NEW PHONE. I'M NO TECH WHIZ!
