The iPhone 13 Mini was released alongside the iPhone 13, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max in 2021, and was extremely popular as it marked the return of the smaller 5.4" display.
In this case the iPhone 13 Mini sports a 5.4" Super Retina XDR OLED display with 800 nits of brightness and the same Ceramic Shield Glass you can find on all other upgraded iPhone 13 models released the same year.
iPhone 13 Mini vs iPhone 13
You may think you're giving up something when it comes to going with the Mini over the base model, but that is not really the case. The 13 Mini has the exact same A15 Bionic chip, 4GB of RAM and same dual rear camera. The only area you'd be relenting is when it comes to battery life. The 13 comes with a 3,240 mAh battery where as the Mini makes space by downgrading to a 2,438 mAh battery. If there would be one trade-off that would be expected it would be the battery to compensate for the size, so that is often not a concern with many fans of the smaller option.
