What is a better choice between iPhone 13 mini and samsung s22?

Using exchange offer, bank discounts and all I am getting S22 for around 50k(corporate account) and getting iPhone 13 mini for around 52-53k in flipkart.

I don’t have any apple products but have a galaxy watch and buds. But should I chose my phone just based on these 2? I could live without these if iphone is more compelling on its own.

My usage:

1) I don’t play games, may be very very lite games sometimes and that’s it.
2) But I do use YouTube, just surfing the net, quora and such things a lot. Btw I am a working professional and not a student.
3) Phone should work for atleast 4 years without any trouble.
4) Based on pts 1&2, I need good battery that will last a day of my type of usage.
5) I don’t do any customisations. I don’t even change wallpaper in years joy.
6) Should not miss on any apps that we use daily.
7) Camera is a top priority.(not just based on if telephoto is present or not)

Mind says S22 as it’s a newer phone than 13 mini and also I can get buds 2 for 3k and use it along my existing buds+ and watch stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

Heart says pick iPhone and live a simple life joy

But I recently found in DD a good price drop deal on iphone 13 and 13mini. Should I wait a week or 2 for any such offer to reappear or this is almost as good as it gets till big billion day sale?

Also should I spend a 7-10k extra and the s22+ / regular 13? But I am thinking it is a stretch if no good reason other than just screen size.

Long term usage(4 years), camera and 1 day battery with lite usage are most important

Considering your usage pattern, iPhone 13 as no brainer.

The only thing is I got to know about the offer price of regular 13…. It was around 63k I think, read in DD itself.
Now I am thinking if I have to wait till I find that price again sweat

wait for big billion day sale and pick a 13 mini. The mini series are one of the best who wants a compact phone.

Tried a friend’s 12 mini for size…. It is manageable but for media consumption it won’t be engaging I guess. Now that initial enthusiasm of buying a phone immediately has dropped especially as both s22 and 13 have their own set of cons for me…..

1)For iphone, I will loose basic things like WhatsApp data switching over from my one plus, my galaxy watch won’t be of much use and I have no apple ecosystem. No universal USB C.

2) For S22, reviews say battery does not even last 1 day…. such a basic thing expressionless

I am also thinking 1-2 years later S22 might become “any other Android” while I think iphone will “remain an Apple iphone”

You can transfer WhatsApp data using some software. Costs around 400.
