Xiaomi 12 and Google Pixel 6 are about 6 to 10 mm longer than the Samsung phone, and the Apple iPhone 13 is the same size as the S22. In terms of weight, Google’s Pixel 6 is the heaviest with 207 grams and Samsung Galaxy S22 is the lightest phone among its competitors with 167 grams.

The Apple iPhone 13 has a screen exactly the same size as the Samsung phone, which uses a Super Retina XDR OLED panel with a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels and a maximum brightness of 1,200 nits.

According to the numbers, iPhone 13 has the lowest battery capacity and Xiaomi’s 67W charging is also the fastest possible charging; Of course, you must know that the amount of battery consumption is related to the processor, the optimization of the software, the temperature of the environment, the temperature of the phone, and other such factors, and you cannot vote based on the numbers alone. The charging port of Xiaomi, Samsung and Apple phones is the same as their older brothers mentioned earlier in this text; Also, the charging port of the Pixel 6 phone is type C, which also uses the USB 3.1 standard.
