iPhone X vs iPhone 13 mini Comparison

Which is the best buy, the iPhone 13 mini or the iPhone X?

The iPhone 13 mini and the iPhone X were released 4 years apart, so you’re going to expect some difference in terms of tech and performance. The  iPhone 13 mini cost around a third less than the iPhone X when it was released, although today you can get a great deal on either phone by buying a refurbished model. Let’s see how they compare.

iPhone X – the first of its kind

The iPhone X wowed the world when it first appeared with an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch OLED screen. It was designed for an immersive experience and it delivered. Gamers and avid Netflix watchers were in love. The iPhone 13 mini also has OLED technology, so it has a similar screen, although it’s a touch smaller at 5.4 inches due to the smaller phone size. The iPhone 13 mini measures 131.5 x 64.2 mm and weighs 141 g the iPhone X measures 143.6 x 70.9 mm and weighs 188 g. The iPhone 13 mini also has a slightly better pixels-per-inch ratio, 476 compared to 458 on the iPhone X, and it’s brighter too. Both of these phones offer wireless and fast charging. 

iPhone 13 mini – more advanced tech

4 years really do make a difference and the iPhone 13 mini shows it. It has a much faster A15 bionic processor, the iPhone X only has A11, it’s enabled for Wi-Fi 6 and it has an extra 1 GB RAM, 4 GB to the iPhone X’s 3 GB. It offers double the storage too with 512 Gb. You’ll also get around 10 more hours of battery life with average use (32 hours in total). Camera-wise, there’s less difference as both have a dual 12 MP rear camera, the iPhone X has 2 X optical zoom, while the iPhone 13 mini has an ultra-wide camera lens. In practical terms that means the iPhone X will blur the background when zooming, while the iPhone 13 mini will keep everything in sharp focus. The front camera on the iPhone 13 mini offers 12 MP compared to 7 MP on the iPhone X, and you can record 4K video too.

Which should you buy?

The answer is it depends on what you want. A bigger screen? The iPhone X. Newer Tech? The iPhone 13 mini? A good camera? Both phones will do the job.
