Asus Zenfone 9 vs Google Pixel 6a vs Xiaomi 12 | Best Compact Phones Compared!

Comparing Asus' Zenfone 9 vs Google's Pixel 6a and the Xiaomi 12, to see which compact smartphone has the best camera tech, gaming performance, battery life and beyond! I've reviewed all three of these phones and I'd happily use any full-time although the Zenfone 9 really impresses - and the Pixel 6a is considerably cheaper, so budget may be a big factor.

For camera lovers, the Google phone performs well for the price. Some will prefer the boosted hues of the Zenfone 9, although Asus' blower does produce incredibly warm, artificial looking video. The Xiaomi 12 is a happy medium, not tinkering so much with the colours, although the selfie cam does struggle more in strong or low light.

Gamers will adore the Zenfone 9 and Xiaomi 12, which boast Snapdragon smarts, dedicated cooling tech and proper gaming tools. Genshin Impact on max settings? No worries! The Pixel 6a unfortunately is best used for PubG, CODM and other more basic Android titles.

Battery life is good on all three compact smartphones although the Zenfone 9 again wins this round, outperforming with a smaller capacity battery. It is defeated on the software support side, however.

So which do you think is best?
