Apple unveiled the iPhone 13 mini along with the remaining sizes of the iPhone at its September 2021 conference.
And the phones got a bunch of improvements that Apple says make them much better than the competition. As a result, it has become easy to compare the iPhone 13 with its competitors from Android devices.
But you should note the difference in the experience between Android and iOS, as there are some aspects that can not be known from the difference in specifications only.
Also, the iPhone has not been officially released yet. So this comparison is based on specs without experience.
And when you think about buying an iPhone 13 mini, you look at all the phones that compete with it in the same price category. That means $700 or $800 bills. But it’s a little different with the iPhone 13 mini. It comes with a screen measuring 5.4 inches.
This size is intended for a specific and specific category of users who are looking for a small screen size away from the additional features in the phone.
But the small size of the screen does not mean that the phone is weak in terms of specifications, as it comes with the same specifications as the iPhone 13.
As a result, this phone is aimed at a specific segment that loves small sizes of phones. These phones have become a bit rare.
Comparison between the specifications of iPhone 13 mini, Galaxy S21 and Oneplus 9
The iPhone 13 mini competes with leading Android phones in larger sizes. As a result, it is a major competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy S21 and Oneplus 9.
But Google is currently absent from this competition, because the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones have not yet been revealed.
The Pixel 5A is also a mid-range phone with a price tag of less than $500. So it is out of competition, and its performance is lower than all other competing phones.
The iPhone 13 mini lacks a high refresh rate screen, a feature found in all of its competitors. So we see the Galaxy S21 offers a screen that works at a refresh rate of 120 Hz and the OnePlus 9 as well, compared to 60 Hz in the iPhone.
Competing phones also excel in terms of camera lens composition, as they all offer a triple lens versus a dual lens for the iPhone.
Apple has not yet revealed the size of the RAM or the battery, and only said that the phone battery has improved from last year. But if Apple follows its old habit, we may see less RAM and battery than competitors in the same price category.
Competitor phones use at least 8GB of memory and at least 4000mAh battery.
The iPhone 13 mini is less in weight and size than competing phones due to the smaller screen size.
