The Best Compact Smartphones

Q1/2022 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

There were no new entries last quarter. The Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 is a very interesting and robust alternative, albeit too heavy to qualify for this top list.

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 13 mini

Apple iPhone 13 mini
Apple iPhone 13 mini

If you are looking for a compact high-end smartphone the Apple iPhone 13 mini is your best bet. System performance, camera quality, and battery life are second to none other in its class. Of all the phones reviewed in the most recent past only the Asus Zenfone 8 gets even close in terms of size. It is very fast yet not as fast as the iPhone 13 mini, and its 5.9-inch display is quite a bit bigger than the iPhone 13 mini’s 5.4-inch display.

The iPhone 13 mini’s Performance and connectivity are second to none.

Apps are running smoothly and without any problems. The system is very snappy and fast, which is at least partly courtesy of the iPhone 13 mini’s great touchscreen. It gets very bright and is thus well usable outdoors. Given that the entry-level models have now been bumped to 128 GB of storage the woes of the past should be just that: of the past.

The Apple iPhone 13 mini is available through Apple as well as the usual retail channels, such as for example Amazon.

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 – Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is an all-around improved Galaxy Z Flip. It features a brighter display and offers an incredibly smooth system performance. Its camera performed very well, and its folding mechanism left a very reliable impression and promises to last a very long time.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G is a matured and well-engineered smartphone with a tiny footprint thanks to its foldable display.

The point of bending is noticeable with a minor dent in the display, which is unavoidable with a folding display. Functionality, however, is not at all affected by this, and we found no other issues with the phone. The small secondary display on its lid did its job very well.

The device is available through the usual retail channels, such as for example Amazon, with prices starting at around $1,650.

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.
