Even the smallest iPhone 12 benefits from the dual-camera system that is found in iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.

The sensor can capture 4K HDR videos at 60 frames per second.

The ultra-wide lens can produce a wide lens as compared to Pixel 5 and pulls in more of the surroundings. The camera controls all distortion and results in an image with more color and deeper contrast. Low light performance has been greatly improved while going from the f/1.8 on iPhone 11 to f/1.6 on iPhone 12 mini. It performs very well in dark settings while the Night Mode works well with both the rear cameras.
You will be more than amazed by how the camera can brighten the exposure while shooting in near-complete darkness and allow the photos to feel as though they have been shot in daylight. Portrait shots are doable as the phone alters the background to focus on your face through blurring or filling the background with a color.
