Almost 10 years after its launch, about 200,000 people still use a Xiaomi Mi 2

People don't want small mobiles, not even iPhone


Small phones are selling less and less.

People don't want smartphones or so it can be deduced from the market data. Before smartphones became popular, everyone was looking for small terminals that would fit in their jacket pocket. Nowadays, with multimedia content being one of the main uses of a mobile phone, it is quite the opposite.

Finding a small or compact Android device is mission impossible. Huawei already warned at the time that they would never manufacture this type of terminals again and that is that users are not interested in them.

Apple thinks the opposite and hence we have seen the iPhone SE 2016/2020 and recently the powerful and small iPhone 12 mini. But, How has this last terminal been in sales?

The sales of the iPhone 12 mini: it has not been so bad either

Sales of the iPhone 12 mini seem not to have been as expected

We read in Reuters that sales in the United States of the new iPhone 12 mini they only represented 5% of total iPhone sales in the first half of January. Lower numbers than the Cupertino company expected.

As we have said before, users increasingly want larger screens. We are not going to deny that we are consuming more and more multimedia content on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney + and YouTube, so it is essential to have large screens. In addition to this, we cannot forget social networks either, since Instagram, Facebook or TikTok are not enjoyed the same on a screen of less than five inches.

All of the above, analysts believe that Apple could stop producing the iPhone 12 mini in the second quarter of this year and is that the demand is not being expected, which does not happen with the larger iPhone versions.

Tom Kang, an analyst at Counterpoint, said that the data of the iPhone 12 mini does not surprise him and is that the sales of smartphones speak for themselves, since smartphones with screens of less than 6 inches they only represent 10% of total sales.

The iPhone 12 mini has a 5.4-inch AMOLED screen, Apple A14 processor, 64, 128 or 256 GB storage, 12 megapixel dual camera and all of this. at a price of 809 euros onwards.
