    Pristine Refurbished iPhone 12 mini Unlocked

    For the second time after the iPhone SE 2020, Apple is presenting the market with a budget-friendly variant of its latest model, the iPhone 12. While the word budget is usually associated with less value and less specs when it comes to smartphone. However, things change when it comes to devices as premium and luxurious as Apple iPhones.

    Even though the iPhone 12 mini is considered as “the more affordable option” of the iPhone 12 lineup, there is absolutely no compromise when it comes to this device. The petite iPhone is almost as big as the good old iPhone 4, yet still, it has all the goodness and powerful specs of the iPhone 12 itself.

    Now, the refurbished iPhone 12 mini with all of its glory is available for an even lower price, but no value, condition, or specs reduction whatsoever. QwikFone is bringing you the best iPhone 12 mini second hand deal at the best condition, free accessories, and lowest prices in the market. Keep reading to find out our special deal and get the full review of the amazing iPhone.


    QwikFone’s Full Review on the iPhone 12 mini

    Apple iPhones always have a lot of opinions surrounding their launch. The iPhone 12 lineup was no different. However, the iPhone 12 mini, as a budget variant was the most incredibly appreciated device of the whole lineup.

    This small iPhone-4-sized device got the same exact capabilities as the entry iPhone 12 with an even bigger screen and an amazing resolution and display quality. Let's talk a look at the details of this iPhone.



    If you haven't been happy in the last couple of years with the increasing sizes on Apple iPhones and miss having a compact iPhone that is easily fit in a small pocket and held in one hand with no risk of dropping it due to it large size, then the compact iPhone 12 mini is here for you.

    The device has the same design, build, and components as the entry iPhone 12 which means you won't be skipping any features or downgrading in any way. Yet, the compact size will take you back to the good old days of iPhone 4!

    Besides the bulky body and the flat square edges, the iPhone 12 mini has an additional slot on the side which is the 5G antenna. The camera module is also thinner which means that, with a phone case, it can be leveled out.



    The top notch is still present in the iPhone 12 mini. However, it is hardly noticeable against the amazing Super Retina XDR OLED screen. At its compact size and with the front all screen, the display of the iPhone 12 mini is absolutely breathtaking. Compared to LCD iPhones such as the iPhone 8 and iPhone XR, this OLED display is certainly a leap forward and, combined with the rest of the iPhone 12 mini's capabilities is absolutely worth the price.

    With the addition of special features such as Dolby Vision and True Tone, the display of the iPhone 12 mini brings a new level of color quality to its users combined with the eye comfort thanks to the brightness and temp levels changing automatically according to the room's lighting where you're using the iPhone.


    Battery & Charging

    Apple is turning up the heat on the competitors in all aspects of iPhone that were previously criticized. With a compact iPhone, everyone expected to have a small battery capacity. However, the iPhone 12 mini came with the surprise of a 2227 mAh battery that supports fast charging as well as Qi magnetic fast wireless charging. With the right charger, the iPhone 12 mini's battery will charge up to 50% with 30 minutes as advertised by Apple!


    Photography & Videos

    Just like the rest of its specs, the iPhone 12 mini is not cutting its users short with the camera. The dual-lens module on the back provides you with great 12MP for wide and ultrawide shots supported with an Optical Image Stabilization feature that makes your on-the-go photos as good as those you capture on a tripod!

    As for video recording, it is easily said that the iPhone 12 mini has a better video quality than any previous iPhone model. Your video colors are going to be more vivid and lively than ever thanks to the Dolby Vision HDR feature supporting the video recording. Combined with stereo sound recording, the iPhone 12 mini is going to give you the best video image and sound quality for your content whether you're recording professionally or as a hobby for personal purposes.

    QwikFone's Refurbished iPhone 12 mini for Sale 

    At QwikFone, a professional team with over 10 years of smartphone refurbishment experience and iPhone repairs work diligently to ensure that all of our iPhone 12 mini 2nd hand devices are returned to an as-good-as-new condition with the help of their skilled hands and using the best quality spare parts available in the market.


    Refurbishing, Unlocking, Selling!

    QwikFone's iPhone 12 mini devices are all pre-loved and obtained directly from their previous owners. To make sure that the iPhone handsets' authenticity and ownership are all in order, a CheckMEND report is provided detailing the iPhone's ownership history.

    After testing each handset using the top mobile phone testing software in the market, the repair and refurbishing process begins. To provide the best quality as well as lowering the financial and environmental costs of the refurbishment process of the iPhone 12 mini second hand device, our specialists use refurbished OEM parts that are retrieved from other iPhone 12 mini devices that were beyond economic repair (BER) or Grade-A spare parts that provide a similar level of performance.

    As a part of our refurbishment process, QwikFone professionals also unlock the iPhone 12 mini SIM software making it accessible for all networks SIM cards. This means that the QwikFone iPhone 12 mini unlocked is the best deal not only to buy in the UK, in all of the EU as well.


    New Accessories, Full Set!

    One of the biggest issues that iPhone users took with the iPhone 12 mini release is the fact that all of this 12 line is not coming with a charger head. Apple explained this by saying that users already have charging brick from other models and an additional one sent out with each iPhone box would represent only an addition to the E-waste ending up in landfills.

    However, the new cable that is sent with the new iPhone 12 mini is not the same type connector as the older brick versions. So, eventually, users would have to pay for a brick separately for this iPhone.

    This is one of the main reasons why it is a better financial decision to buy an iPhone 12 mini used from QwikFone. Our refurbished mobile phone deal includes a full set of accessories with the charger brick, USB cable, and earphones all included in the price.

    All of QwikFone accessories are measured against the original accessories quality to ensure the perfect experience for our customers who choose the iPhone 12 mini 2nd hand deal.


    1-Year Standard Warranty

    To guarantee that the iPhone 12 mini comes in a like-new condition and function as expected for the first year after the purchase, QwikFone is providing a 12-month warranty policy.

    This warranty covers any malfunction that may happen while the user is enjoying his or her iPhone 12 mini from QwikFone. We provide free repairs within the warranty policy as well as free replacement iPhone devices for issues that are not eligible for repair according to our repair professionals ruling.

    Accessories get the same warranty period as the iPhone, but only replacing malfunctioning accessories is possible as we do not repair defective accessories.

    Our warranty policy applies only to phones that start malfunctioning on their own due to a manufacturing or refurbishment error. In other words, QwikFone warranty does not cover repairing accidental damages for free.

    We do, however, provide paid repair services for accidental damages and water-related damages. Since third-party repairs can and will void this warranty policy, our repair professionals provide these paid services to keep the warranty policy valid for the future as long as the 12-month period lasts.


    Return Policy for 30 Days

    At QwikFone, we completely understand the stigma surrounding refurbished phones, especially when it comes to online shopping where you purchase a mobile phone that you have never seen before and didn't get the chance to examine before buying.

    This is why we provide a 30-day return policy that guarantees a full refund to help our customers feel safe while purchasing their second hand iPhone 12 mini devices online. With this return policy applicable to all the refurbished iPhones we sell, simply, if you don't like the device or if you change your mind, you get your money back in full, no cuts, no questions asked.
