The Best Compact Smartphones

Q3/2021 update. Smartphones with large display are a dime a dozen. However, things are rather bleak if you’re looking for a compact smartphone. Below, you will find the best compact smartphones reviewed by us.
Daniel Schmidt (translated by Finn D. Boerne), 🇩🇪 🇹🇷 ...

Smartphone with screens smaller than 5.5 inches were standard a short while ago, but devices with 6.3 inches or more are dominating the market right now. This is a a result of the popular aspect ratios 2:1, 19:9 or even 21:9. Then we have a new category of foldable smartphones, so devices with screens bigger than 7 inches will not be unusual in the near future. 

Compact devices are still popular, so we want to present the best compact smartphones in the following ranking. The display size ist not as important as the actual size of the smartphone, so devices with a good screen-to-body ratio will benefit. The contenders must not surpass a length of 150 millimeters, but we will also sort out very bulky devices.

The following smartphone ranking might be interesting as well:

Editors' Comments

This quarter sees a single new-entry, the Asus ZenFone 8. The remainder of our top 10 is still worth a closer look.

1st – Apple iPhone 12 mini

Apple iPhone 12 mini
Apple iPhone 12 mini

The Apple iPhone 12 mini is the new and highly anticipated iPhone SE while outperforming the latter at the same time with ease. It is also very similar overall to the larger iPhone 12. Next to other high-end smartphones, the small iPhone 12 mini seems incredibly tiny in comparison. Its 5.4-inch OLED display is very sharp, and the built-in Apple A14 is supported by 4 GB of RAM and either 64, 128, or 256 GB of storage space.

Compared to its Pro sibling the mini’s rear-facing dual-lens camera lacks the telephoto lens, the LiDAR scanner, and support for ProRAW. Apart from that we noted its bright and color-accurate display, its accurate location services, and its Sub6 5G with a wide range of supported frequencies. Due to the smaller capacity battery life was on the short side yet still acceptable.

2nd – Apple iPhone 12 Pro

Apple iPhone 12 Pro
Apple iPhone 12 Pro

The Apple iPhone 12 Pro is a well-made upgrade to last year’s devices with a design language reminiscent of iPhones of yore. The 6.1-inch display turned out to be excellent, and its triple camera is now supported by a LiDAR sensor for 3D modelling as well as portrait mode assistance in low-light situations. The rear-mounted internal magnets are new and support much more than just the brand-new wireless MagSafe charger.

We did not find too many flaws on the iPhone 12 Pro. Its peculiarities are not going to bother long-time iPhone users, and there are almost no annoying limitations worth noting. Except for maybe the lack of Bluetooth High Res Audio support and the fact that 5G is not supported in Dual SIM mode.

3rd – iPhone 12

Apple iPhone 12
Apple iPhone 12

The Apple iPhone 12 is practically identical to the iPhone 12 mini from a technical perspective with the only real difference being its 6.1-inch OLED display and consequently larger body at identical thickness. Thanks to its larger case it also features a larger battery ensuring noticeably longer battery life.

In our review we noted its good dual-camera, its accurate location services, and its wide array of supported frequencies. Considering its price, we would have expected a display with a refresh rate higher than 60 Hz. Its speakers also turned out to be mediocre at best.

4th – Huawei P40

Huawei P40

Who says everything needs to be “Pro”? The Huawei P40 is a compact flagship smartphone by Chinese OEM Huawei. Not only does it include top of the line high-end hardware, but it also comes at a surprisingly low price. Its 6.1-inch OLED display runs in FHD+ resolution, and the device is powered by a fast Kirin 990 SoC with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, the latter of which can be further expanded via NM card. The device supports modern communication standards, such as Wi-Fi 6 and 5G, and features a great triple-camera setup.

We liked the P40 a lot during our review but found its lack of wireless charging and its unexpectedly low IP rating lacking. Its biggest downside, however, is the complete lack of Google services.

5th – Asus ZenFone 8

Asus ZenFone 8
Asus ZenFone 8

The Zenfone 8 is a particularly compact high-quality smartphone. Its system performance is excellent making for a very smooth everyday performance. In addition to fast Wi-Fi and a bright AMOLED display it also supports 5G. It comes with 256 GB of internal storage, which is more than most competitors offer. Alternatively, an SKU with 128 GB is also available.

The Asus ZenFone 8 offers plenty of performance in a compact high-quality case.

We grew particularly fond of its compact and robust case. Some might consider it too thick but at the same time it gives the ZenFone 8 a more premium touch and feel. It is also IP68-certified against ingress of dust and water, and its camera offers a decent quality good enough for everyday use.

The Asus ZenFone 8 is not officially sold in the US. The unlocked international version is available on Amazon for $940.

6th – Apple iPhone SE2

Apple iPhone SE2
Apple iPhone SE2

Apple’s iPhone SE is based on the iPhone 8 and features the exact same case with identical footprint and somewhat antiquated display to body ratio. In return, its internal hardware is up to date as it features Apple’s fastest currently available SoC as well as numerous other noteworthy features, such as Wi-Fi 6, wireless charging, or an IP67 certification.

All in all Apple did a great job with the SE2, but it is not free of disappointments, namely the included power supply, the fairly limited single-lens camera, and its below average call quality.

Pricecompare

7th – Google Pixel 5

Google Pixel 5

The Google Pixel 5 features a 6-inch large OLED display with a good display-to-body ratio. Unlike its predecessor it no longer has any high-end ambitions but rather a healthy focus on the premium mid-range market. It comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of non-expandable storage. Its plastic case feels great in hand and is IP68-certified against ingress of dust and water. Wireless charging remains supported, the dual camera now includes an extra ultra-wide angle lens, and it continues to take decent photos.

Unfortunately, the Pixel 5 lacks Wi-Fi 6 support and its speakers were actually worse than on its own predecessor. 

Pricecompare

8th – Google Pixel 4a

Google Pixel 4a

The Google Pixel 4a's main benefits are its compact design and Google’s promise of long-time update support. However, those aren’t its only benefits by far. Its Snapdragon 730G with access to 6 GB of RAM makes for a snappy system performance. Its internal storage may not be user-expandable but at 128 GB it should be sufficiently large for most users. Uncommon for its price class are the support for fast USB 3.2 Gen. 1 speeds as well as a very good headphone jack.

In return, the Pixel 4a no longer supports face detection but comes with a traditional rear-mounted fingerprint reader instead.

9th – Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is a foldable phone inspired by the design of the folding phones of yore, and thus very compact when folded. It comes with a small Super AMOLED display on the outside that is used among other things to display notifications or control music playback. Unfolded it transforms into a 6.7-inch large smartphone powered by a Snapdragon 855+, 8 GB of RAM, and 256 GB of non-expandable internal storage.

In our review we praised the overall well-thought out concept, the great display, its good cameras, and plentiful connectivity. In return, call quality was mediocre at best.

10th - Samsung Galaxy A41

Samsung Galaxy A41
Samsung Galaxy A41

The Samsung Galaxy A41 features a surprisingly lightweight colorful plastic case with a 6.1-inch Super AMOLED display running at FHD+ resolution. It is powered by a mid-range SoC made by MediaTek, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal storage.

The Galaxy A41 is an improvement over its own predecessor, the Galaxy A40, and offers a good price-performance ratio.

Despite optional microSD storage expansion it can take two Nano SIM cards simultaneously. Its triple-camera performed decent in our test, and its battery life was okay overall. We did not find any noteworthy flaws.

The Samsung Galaxy A41 is not available in North America.
