iPhone 13 mini vs iPhone X Comparison

iPhone 13 mini vs iPhone X: has 4-years of "innovation" showed any real improvements?

The iPhone 13 mini and the iPhone X are 4-years apart from each other, thus the innovations are likely to be quite drastic from the two models. However, we dig in further to find out whether this is true or not.

iPhone 13 mini vs iPhone X: camera quality

When it comes to camera quality, they both have a dual camera system of 12 MP lenses, but the real difference is in the selfie camera quality with the 13 mini sporting a 12 MP lens in comparison to the 7 MP selfie camera on the iPhone X. Furthermore, when it comes to video footage, the 13 mini has Dolby Vision HDR quality, but this is missing on the X model.

iPhone 13 mini vs iPhone X: battery, resolution, and processor

The battery life of both phones is relatively different to each other; with a 2438 mAh battery on the 13 mini, you can expect up to 10 hours of web browsing or video streaming, while the iPhone X has a slightly larger 2716 mAh battery which allows you up to 11 hours instead. The display size is undoubtedly different (5.4 inches vs 5.8), but also the resolution too; surprisingly the iPhone 13 mini has a slightly lower resolution spec in comparison with 1080 x 2340 px compared to 1125 x 2436 px on the iPhone X. The color options are varied for the 13 mini with 6 different options, whereas the iPhone X is only offered in space gray and silver colors only. In terms of storage capacity and chipset/processor speed, you can acquire a storage space of as high as 512GB with the 13 mini, whereas the iPhone X can only go as high as 256GB. They also differ in RAM capacity; 4 GB RAM for an Apple A15 Bionic processor in an iPhone 13 mini versus 3 GB RAM for Apple A11 Bionic processor in an iPhone X. Both models are upgradable to the latest iOS 16.3. Both phones have slightly different designs; at 141 g weight and 5.4 inches screen size for iPhone 13 mini versus 174 g weight and 5.8 inches screen size for iPhone X.

iPhone 13 mini vs iPhone X: verdict

Overall when it comes to technical specifications such as camera quality, battery life, display size & resolution, available colors, storage capacity, chipset & processor speed and RAM capacity - there isn’t really too much difference which comes as a surprise. The iPhone X surprised us in terms of battery and resolution specifications against the 13 mini, and when it comes to camera the 13 mini overall edges the iPhone X, as well as chipset processor speeds. The other considerations are more of an aesthetic preference with size, weight and colorway - the choice is yours.
