The iPhone 12 mini fits the branding well, despite the fact it offers a 5.4-inch OLED display.

It’s not the smallest screen that Apple has offered in a smart phone to date, but it manages to cram it all in a smaller, lighter, and thinner package anyway. Compared to several different iPhone models, the iPhone 12 mini finds itself comfortably fitting between the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 6. For some future owners, the iPhone 12 mini’s 5.4-inch screen size, and overall redesign with the edge-to-edge display, may make it a perfect smartphone.

As a quick comparison between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, here’s how the two devices compare in size and weight:

Size & weight

iPhone 12 mini

  • Height: 5.18 inches (131.5mm)
  • Weight: 4.76 ounces (135 grams)
  • Width: 2.53 inches (64.2mm)
  • Depth: 0.29 inch (7.4mm)

iPhone 12

The folks over at iPhoneSoft.fr have put together a nice look at how the iPhone 12 mini compares to the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone 12. You can see the devices pictured side-by-side at the top of this article. It’s a nice way to see at a glance how the iPhone 12 mini compares to the 5s and 6, especially if you were fans of those handsets.

Plus, it’s crazy to see how a smartphone with a 5.4-inch display can be resized, reworked, and redesigned to actually fit in a smaller profile than the iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch display. Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 still looks like a giant — and it’s not even as big as the iPhone 12 Pro Max with its 6.7-inch display.

Are you planning on upgrading to the iPhone 12 mini? Or will you be opting for one of the larger new iPhones?
