Which Refurbished Phone Fits Into Your Pocket?

Smartphones have been steadily increasing in size as brands like Apple and Samsung pack their flagships with better cameras, higher amounts of storage and more features. Most new smartphones take two hands to operate and while their advanced AI capabilities and photographic features make them appealing, they’ve started to stretch beyond the size that can comfortably fit into small spaces like pockets and pouches. There’s something to be said for a mobile phone that fits right in your pocket and is easy to carry from A to B.

Luckily, discreet and compact phones that fit nicely in confined spaces haven’t gone extinct just yet. Brands like Apple, Samsung, Google Pixel and other Android manufacturers still make models that make the most of your pocket space, even if you only have a small dress or jeans pocket (or internal pouch on your bag) to work with.

Besides being highly portable, there are many great things about smaller-sized phones. They’re less distracting and have surprisingly long battery lives when compared to their larger counterparts and are often more affordable, especially when you buy them refurbished.

Refurbished smartphones are second-hand smartphones that have passed through a strict testing process to make sure their features still work, and their standards of quality are high. When you buy refurbished, you can be sure that every part of your new phone, from the screen to the battery, meets the standards you expect as a customer in Australia. So, which of the world’s biggest smartphone brands offers smaller-scale models? Here’s a phone size comparison from OzMobiles to help make your shopping choices easier.  

Refurbished Samsung Phones That Fit in Your Pocket

The biggest Android brand in the world, Samsung has shown itself to be an expert at crafting all kinds of phones, including smaller-than-average ones.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Series

Samsung’s signature flip phone shrinks all the way down to a tiny square that easily fits into a front pocket. With the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 due for release this year, Samsung has firmly established itself as the leader of the clamshell world. Besides being easy to flip and slip into a small pocket, the Z Flip range comes with the usual Samsung perks: long-life batteries, powerful photo and video technology and a design that doesn’t neglect a sense of style.

Here’s a quick Samsung Galaxy Z flip phone size comparison: When closed, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is 3.35 x 2.83 x 0.59 inches, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 5G is 2.83 x 6.5 x 0.27 inches, and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G is 2.84 x 3.40 x 6.74 inches.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Series

While the Z Flip flips, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold opens and shuts like a book. Unfurl it, and you’ll have a tablet to work on. Close it, and you’ll have a smartphone that fits right in your pocket. It’s the perfect choice if you want superior battery life, graphics, processing and multi-tasking power in a package you can fold up and slide right into your pocket.

If you want a phone size comparison, here is how the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 measures up. Folded up, the Z Fold 5 is 6.1 x 2.64 x .53 inches, while the Z Fold 4 is 6.1 x 2.6 x 0.55-0.62 inches.

Refurbished iPhones That Fit in Your Pocket

Apple’s iOS system includes everything from tablets and Mac laptops to (on the other end of the scale) small-size iPhones.

iPhone SE Series

With Apple’s iPhone Mini range now discontinued, the iPhone SE series is the brand’s smallest smartphone line. It’s one of its most affordable models and a way to start enjoying the Apple range and iOS connectivity without flagship-level prices. The iPhone SE’s most appealing features include 5G connectivity, an A15 Bionic chip, a 4.7-inch display, Touch ID and a single-lens camera with Portrait Mode, Portrait Lighting and Depth Control.

The iPhone SE comes in a size that’s small enough for you to use with one hand with ease. The First Generation is available in 4.87 x 2.31 x 0.30 inches, while the second and third are 5.45 x 2.65 x 0.29 inches.

iPhone 12 Mini

The iPhone Mini is no longer available—unless you buy a refurbished iPhone 12 Mini. At just 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4mm, the iPhone 12 Mini is the smallest iPhone for generations. It has the same design as a standard iPhone 12 but is small enough to hold one-handed and tuck into a small pocket.

Despite its small size, the iPhone 12 Mini’s features are no less impressive than its larger counterparts. With its Super Retina XDR OLED technology, the screen is as good as any you’ll see on a larger iPhone. The camera set-up has two 12MP rear cameras, a wide-angle camera and a selfie camera, and the A14 Bionic chipset keeps things powering along nicely.

Other Refurbished Android Phones That Fit In Your Pocket

There are Android brands besides Samsung that produce small-size, easy-to-use smartphones. Other worthwhile options for a mobile phone that fits in your pocket include:

Google Pixel Series

At a size of 6.24 x 2.94 x 0.35 inches, Google’s Pixel smartphone range is an affordable Android option that has its own unique benefits. As you’d expect from the company behind the world’s most famous search engine, Google Pixel phones are easy and intuitive to use and take advantage of the latest upgrades in technology, including the best in camera potential. Google also doesn’t add any extras to its operating system—no bloatware or space-filling apps—so you get a pure, streamlined Android experience.

A Google Pixel phone will provide you with high-end cameras, amazing photo edits and features, a stunning and crisp OLED display and the power of the Tensor chip. With the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, the latest in Google’s impressive range, you’ve got plenty of choice when you’re smartphone shopping.

Oppo Find X2 Neo

Oppo is one of the big names in affordable Android smartphones and its Find X2 Neo model is a phone with big features, although it fits snugly in the palm of your hand. Backed by powerful specs like the Snapdragon 765G chipset, 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, the Find X2 Neo’s features include all-day battery life, terrific speakers and four rear cameras, including a punch-hole selfie camera.
