For years, we’ve felt the need to compare the relative sizes of different phones. We looked into creating a tool with static images, but that never seemed like the right solution. Instead, we worked with our partners at Binkies 3D to develop the 3D Viewer we launched a few years ago to let you see two phones side-by-side and examine them from all angles.


You can choose from a list of over 700 phones (and growing) and view them side-by-side with another phone. Just use our usual comparison feature, placing the iPhone 14 Pro and Galaxy S23 side by side, for example, and you’ll see the new 3D Size Up buttons that take you straight to the 3D view.

Note: Our desktop site can display specifications for up to three phones. There are buttons that allow you to compare two of them in 3D with just one click.

We’ve also included a live demo below to help us explain a few features. The first is the Full Screen button in the lower right corner. This view also displays four buttons that allow you to quickly switch between front, rear, and side views.

If you don’t see anything above, there are some potential issues. The demo above will not work if you are reading this on the AMP version of our site, use this link to go directly to the 3D size comparison page. Another potential problem occurs in Chrome: the 3D rendering engine does not work if hardware acceleration is disabled (look for “Use hardware acceleration when available” in the settings).

Another neat thing is that you can switch between different color options for both phones. Binkies 3D models recreate the colors, gradients and surface finish of phones so you can see how each element – whether metal, glass or plastic – picks up light as you spin them.

As this is rendered in 3D, you have the freedom to view the phones from any angle. This allows you to examine differences that are difficult to convey using static photos. The curvature of a phone’s screen (and back) – check out the Find X5 Pro versus the Galaxy S23 Ultra, for example.

Once you’re on the 3D Size Comparison page, you can use the search boxes to easily swap one model for another. The search on this page is filtered so that you only see phones that have 3D views available. Go ahead and explore.
