The iPhone 11 and the iPhone 13 mini are still two of the most frequently bought iPhones today.The iPhone 11 despite being released 2 years prior to the newer iPhone 13 mini, still offers some perks that customers may have overlooked.Let’s take a deeper look at the two devices and see if the newer model is really the better model or not.

iPhone 11 vs iPhone 13 mini: camera quality

Regarding camera quality, both phones are almost identical with a dual 12 MP rear camera and 12 MP selfie camera. However, the real and only difference between the two phones is that iPhone 13 mini comes with Dolby Vision HDR for recording, whereas the iPhone 11 does not.

iPhone 11 vs iPhone 13 mini: size, battery, and design

For display size and resolution, the iPhone 11 unsurprisingly has a bigger 6.1 inch screen  and 828 x 1792 px resolution while the iPhone 13 mini has a 5.4 inch screen with 1080 x 2340 px resolution. In terms of battery life, the iPhone 11 has 3110 mAh which can last up to 10 hours for web browsing or video streaming while the battery life of an iPhone 13 mini is 2438 mAh which can only last up to 8 hours instead. The storage capacity options are slightly better with the iPhone 13 mini as it can go up to 512GB whereas the iPhone 11 can only go as high as 256GB. Both phones have 4 GB RAM and are upgradable to the latest iOS 16.3 operating system. Regarding design; The iPhone 11 comes in six colors (black , white , green , yellow , purple and red) whereas The iPhone 13  mini comes in five colors (black, white, green, blue and red). Finally when it comes to chipset and processor speed, the iPhone 11 has an older chip with arguably lower speeds from using the A13 Bionic chip, but on the other hand, the 13 mini works on the A15 Bionic chipset where you can expect better performance than the iPhone 11.

And the winner is.... iPhone 13 mini!

To sum it all up, if you want better performance than go for the newer iPhone 13 mini model, otherwise the iPhone 11 will still do a great job.
