The Best And Smallest Smartphones For Every Budget (2020)


Luis Silva - (October 2020)


Smartphones are getting bigger every day. That's a fact.

A couple of years ago, no one would be calling a 6.9-inch device a smartphone. It would be more like a tablet. Today, that device, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, with its impressive 166mm/5.66 inches of height is, very likely the most taller of them all. Then, on the other end, there's the new iPhone SE 2, at 138mm/4.87 inches tall.

Now, a small device doesn't necessarily mean a smaller display. The Samsung Galaxy S10e is just 4mm/0.14 inches taller than the iPhone SE 2, but its screen is 1.1 inches longer. That's because it has a higher screen-to-body ratio.

Anyways, now you have a regularly updated list, sorted by each smartphone's height so you can choose the one that better suits your needs. There's also a list for every budget, although the global top 10 list does have a wide variety of prices.

If you prefer to pick a smartphone, based on its screen-to-body ratio, then check out the links at the end of this list. There's something there for you.

If you're on a budget, both the Xiaomi Mi A3 and the Huawei P30 Lite are good choices. If not, then you should consider the iPhone 11 Pro.

Tips: You can click on any phone to check out some of its specs. Prices marked with ! are from renewed/refurbished/carrier-locked phones. You can also find links to Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, and Walmart (and updated prices) in any comparison article.
