Which small light and handy phone should you choose? TOP 4

A compact smartphone is currently a bit of a scarce commodity, but you can find several such models in stores. Fortunately, there are some really interesting suggestions among them. You will get to know them here. Which small light and handy phone should you choose.

Small, handy phone - what does it really mean?

It cannot be denied that one of the most visible trends on the mobile market in recent years has been the rapidly growing size of smartphones. It has come to the fact that when considering what screen in the phone will be the best, you can consider the technology of execution, resolution or refresh rate, but in the case of the diagonal you have to be prepared for more than 6 inches, regardless of the budget available. Apart from a few exceptions, which we decided to focus on this time.

Currently, a compact smartphone is one that has a screen smaller than 6 inches. By adding slim frames, you can count that the entire structure will easily fit not only in a purse, but also in a pocket, and its comfortable operation will also be possible with one hand.

Interestingly, Apple responded most loudly to the voices of users bored only with large smartphones. And it's not only about the iPhone SE (2020), but most of all about the iPhone 12 mini. Not only that, because in the end, when browsing the offers of individual leading manufacturers, it is Apple that we find the most (proportionally to the entire offer) of smartphones with screens smaller than 6 inches. The others unhurriedly decide to use similar designs, but it is comforting that when they do, the effects usually turn out to be very satisfactory.

A small phone doesn't have to be weak

If someone wonders whether it is possible to buy a compact smartphone with the top specification, the answer is simple - yes. The aforementioned iPhone 12 mini is the best example of the fact that a small, by current standards, housing does not have to mean poor or average components, but one that will meet the requirements of even the most demanding users.

Among the proposals with the Android system, we can also find compact and efficient models, although it has to be concealed that here most of the few small smartphones offer weaker components. In the end, it can be said that everyone, or at least almost everyone, will find something for themselves.

Apple iPhone 12 mini

For some people, the iPhone 12 mini probably comes to mind first. No wonder, because it is not only a proposal from a very well-known manufacturer, but also the smallest such efficient smartphone on the market. It has an OLED screen with a diagonal of 5.4 inches, and the dimensions of the entire structure are only 131.5 x 64.2 mm. Nevertheless, it hides the top A14 Bionic processor, which, together with iOS 14, ensures perfect operation of the interface, as well as all applications, multimedia and games. In the case of the latter, stereo speakers are useful, in addition, the iPhone 12 mini has a good dual camera with 4K recording at 60 fps, Bluetooth 5.0, fast Wi-Fi 6, NFC and a module for 5G network support. The advantage is also undoubtedly the IP68 water resistance, the battery with the option of wireless charging and, at least for some, probably also Face ID.

The most important features:

  • IOS 14
  • Display (diagonal) 5.4 inch / inch
  • Display (resolution) 2340 x1080 px
  • Main processor (name) A14 Bionic
  • Storage 64 GB
  • Camera (rear) 12 Mpx + 12 Mpx
  • Weight 133 g

Apple iPhone SE (2020)

The iPhone SE (2020) is only slightly older, but noticeably less advanced than the iPhone 12 mini. As a result, it is also quite affordable for Apple. Is it weak? Definitely not, because the A13 Bionic processor is the same that was also used in the iPhone 11 series. The smartphone works perfectly, which we also confirmed in our tests, you will not find an application or game that would "choke" it. The IPS screen here is only 4.7 inches but is surrounded by wide bezels. Despite this, the dimensions of 138.4 x 67.3 mm ensure comfortable operation with one hand. The photographic possibilities here are not impressive, but daytime photos look good and movies can be recorded in 4K movies at 60 fps. On the plus side, you need to note the presence of wireless battery charging, fast Wi-Fi 6, NFC and a waterproof housing (IP67).

The most important features:

  • Operating system iOS 13, iOS 14
  • Display (diagonal) 4.7 inch / inch
  • Display (resolution) 750 x 1334 px
  • Main processor (name) Apple A13
  • Storage 64 GB
  • Camera (rear) 12 Mpx
  • Weight 148 g

ASUS ZenFone 8

In the case of Android, the new-smelling ASUS ZenFone 8 is ahead of the game. In fact it is one of the best smartphones with this system at all. Of course, also one of the few with compact dimensions. It measures 148 x 68.5 mm, the AMOLED display used by the manufacturer has a 5.9 inch diagonal, Full HD + resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. The latter feature translates into perfectly smooth animations and images in dynamic games. Their trouble-free operation is guaranteed by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, a lot of RAM and fast UFS 3.1 internal memory. You can also count on stereo speakers, 5G support and a waterproof housing that complies with the IP68 standard. The 4000 mAh battery lasts for about 1.5 days, it only supports wired charging, but it is fast - 30W.

The most important features:

  • Operating system Android 11
  • Display (diagonal) 5.9 inch / inch
  • Display (resolution) 1080x2400 px
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Main Processor
  • Storage 256 GB
  • Camera (rear) 64 + 12 Mpx
  • RAM 8 GB
  • Weight 170 g

 Google Pixel 4a

Google smartphones are not the most popular on our market and their prices are not the most tempting. As for the capabilities of this manufacturer's equipment, however, you can not have many reservations, which is also proven by Google Pixel 4a with a 5.81-inch OLED screen. This is a mid-range offer, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, 6 GB RAM and a clean, well-optimized Android system from the same manufacturer. Contrary to market trends, it has a single camera, but you should not equate it with bad photos, because they fare really well here. There is NFC, there are stereo speakers, but the 3140 mAh battery unfortunately does not impress. A strong bargaining chip here may be the fact that it is one of those smartphones that will be the first to receive the Android 12 update.

The most important features:

  • Operating system: Android 10, Android 11
  • Display (diagonal) 5.8 inch / inch
  • Display (resolution) 2340 x1080 px
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G Main Processor
  • Storage 128 GB
  • Camera (rear) 12.2 Mpx
  • RAM 6 GB
  • Weight 143 g

The best little smartphone - in our opinion

You don't have to be one of the biggest Apple fans to honestly admit that the iPhone 12 mini is currently the best small smartphone on the market. It offers flagship components that, contrary to market trends, are closed in a really compact housing. For those who prefer the Android system, the ASUS Zenfone 8 may be the equivalent. Although it is a bit larger, but still compact, it also offers great specifications, which translates into very comfortable operation in practice.
