A colleague of a friend brought me an iPhone from Hawaii to Thailand in 2007. I jailbroke the phone immediately - less to tweak it and more so I could use the phone in Asia before it became widely available in Thailand in January 2009. I didn't realize how radical this was at the time. I simply wanted the best phone/tool for everything I was doing.
iPhone 12 mini looks awesome. loved my iPhone 4 & the best thing about the iPhone 5 is the 16:9 landscape ratio. The 4 fit comfortably in one's pocket and without 1cm top & bottom bezels, we're in probably in business!
