Apple’s long-awaited newest generation of iPhones is here, and we’ve got all sorts of reviews and comparisons to help you make the best purchase decision. With the new iPhone 13
, iPhone 13 Pro
, iPhone 13 Pro Max
, and iPhone 13 mini
out, there’s no lack of new material to work with, and here in particular we will be looking at the various sizes and how they stand up against competing smartphones.
To many, size definitely matters when it comes to their mobiles, and the diversity of sizes on the market can make it difficult to choose what’s best for you. Some care about a snug jeans pocket fit, while for others, the larger the screen, the better. We want to give you the best possible context for an informed decision by putting various competing handsets side by side for a proper comparison.

Before we start pitting up the iPhone 13 family against competitors, it seems only natural that we compare the “siblings” to each other first with a nice visual.
iPhone 13 Mini vs iPhone 13 vs iPhone 13 Pro vs. iPhone 13 Pro Max: size comparison
As you probably expected, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro are the exact same dimensions, following previous years’ trends. The Pro Max is almost nearly a phablet, on the other hand, and users would be hard-pressed to fit it into any regular-sized pants pocket. The iPhone 13 mini would slip right in and stay snug in nearly any pocket, as the name implies.
If you don’t like to carry around a bag or clothes with oversized pockets, and value compactness over screen size, then you may find the miniature version more convenient than the others.
iPhone 13 vs iPhone 12 / iPhone 13 Pro Max vs iPhone 12 Pro Max
As you can see, Apple
kept last year’s and this year’s Pro Max models exactly the same in size; the only difference is in the design and specs. The base models’ dimensions also remain identical in size, as do the iPhone 12 mini
and iPhone 13 mini—so if you own any of the iPhone 12 series, you already know what you’re working with even if you choose to upgrade.
iPhone 13 mini vs. iPhone XS vs. Pixel 5 vs. Galaxy S10E
If you were eyeing the iPhone 13 mini in particular and haven’t experienced an Apple mini before, but may perhaps have owned one of the few small-sized alternatives on the market, here is the perfect place to compare the size difference between some of the top choices that are out there.
These three are some of the smallest competing alternatives to Apple’s most recent tiny-sized handset, pitted against the iPhone 13 mini. The Samsung Galaxy S10E
the iPhone XS
clocks in slightly bigger than the iPhone mini, while the Google Pixel 5 manages to be both somehow bigger and
much lighter than the XS at the same time.
Clearly, the 13 mini is still the smallest of the bunch, although it packs the power of one of the top flagships on the market in its slender 4.97-oz frame.
iPhone 13 vs. Galaxy S21 vs. Pixel 5 vs. OnePlus 9
Let’s be honest, the middle-ground iPhone 13 is going to me much more widely sold than the mini variant—so we’re going to need some decent visual comparisons of that one as well. It’s just barely over the size of the Pixel 5 (we’ll have to make do with comparing to that model while we wait for the Pixel 6 to come out next month).
It’s definitely more compact than the OnePlus 9, however, and has visibly significantly less screen real-estate than this potential Samsung counterpart (one generation behind), the Galaxy S21
iPhone 13 Pro Max vs. Galaxy S21 Ultra vs. Galaxy Note 20 Ultra vs. OnePlus 9 Pro
Finally, the monster of the bunch, the iPhone 13 Pro Max—it certainly dwarfs some other phones with its 6.7-inch OLED screen, same as its predecessor.
