I bought an iPhone 12 mini because it's small -- it fits in my shirt pocket or the side pocket of a pair of cargo shorts. I bought it in green because I like the color and because it helps tell my phone from all the black ones -- and yet I wanted a case for it which seems self contradictory. The iPhone 12 Mini MNML Case doesn't appreciably change either the size or the color, so it meets those needs. Does it offer significant protection -- I don't know and I have no intention of doing field testing by dropping the phone on the sidewalk. Nonetheless this case fulfills my wants at a reasonable price. If I ever find myself abusing the phone I can come back and change the number of stars .
