The new iPhones are here and there are more than ever. We have the iPhone 12 Mini, the regular iPhone 12 and, of course, the iPhone 12 Pro pair. This year, Apple is changing things up a bit not only with a new design but new sizes as well. We’ll have plenty of articles that compare the new phones to older generations and Android competitors in terms of specs, cameras and everything else that’s important. Here, however, we’ll focus on size.
So, let’s begin with a comparison between the three sizes the iPhone 12 family comes in.
- 1 iPhone 12 Mini vs iPhone 12 vs iPhone 12 Pro Max: size comparison
- 2 iPhone 12 vs iPhone 11 vs iPhone SE vs iPhone 8 Plus size comparison
- 3 iPhone 12 Mini vs Pixel 5 vs Galaxy S10e vs Galaxy S20 size comparison: the smallest you can get
- 4 iPhone 12 Pro Max vs Galaxy S20 Ultra vs Galaxy Note 20 Ultra vs OnePlus 8 Pro size comparison: the biggest you can get
- 5 iPhone 12 vs Pixel 5 vs LG Velvet vs OnePlus 8 size comparison: the middle ground

Now, time to see how the base model, the iPhone 12, compares against other iPhone form-factors.

You might be wondering how small is the iPhone 12 Mini compared to other phones from recent years we consider compact. Well, let’s take a look and find out!
When it comes to weight and thickness there’s no competition as well. Apple made sure to highlight the reduction in those two categories on all of its new models. Bigger batteries? Not this year!

Time to go to the other end of the spectrum. For some people, even if phones share the same specs, the flagshippiest (that’s totally a word) among them is the largest one. After all, those are the most expensive ones. Well, here are some of the most popular big smartphones compared to the new iPhone 12 Pro Max:
While on the small end the iPhone 12 Mini had them all beat, on the other end it’s quite the opposite. Despite Apple stretching its display more than ever before, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is still the smallest of the bunch. And that’s how it will likely be in the future as well.
The reason is that unlike other manufacturers that opt for taller screen ratios, Apple insists on keeping the shape of its iPhones the same no matter the size. This means an even larger display will make the phone too wide to comfortably hold. Apple probably made the move to a larger screen this year thanks to the flat edges that allowed the devices to be slimmer, but it seems like that might be as large as iPhones will get.

This lineup might seem odd at first, but these are all $700 phones, at least at the beginning of their lives on the market. They’re obviously quite different but aim to be the common sense flagship option from their respective manufacturers. So, how do they compare size-wise? Let’s take a look!
Does that mean the Pixel 5 is the worst value? Of course not. There’s more to a phone than its display but delving into the specs, software and cameras is for another article. It’s worth noting, however, that the “iPhones are expensive” trope is old news. But that’s also worth talking about in a separate article. All in due time!
