Rising Star II

I have the ZF9 and a bunch of other small(-ish) Android phones (3 Pixels, S23, Xiaomi 13 plus some weird small Japanese terminals like the Balmuda Phone, the Rakuten Hand, and my trusty old Sony XZ1 Compact); and I have used both the 12 mini and the 13 mini for a couple of months each.

iOS is quite poor compared to contemporary Android in many areas (file management, keyboard & language management, notification management, permissions management, home page and widgets, customizations etc.). But if you can live with iOS, the Minis are by the far the smallest, the most comfortable flagship phones to hold. They also take good pics (though Apple has gone rather far down the oversharpening alley, if you ask me). The only negative besides iOS is the battery, which is mediocre even on the 13 Mini compared to the likes of ZF9/10, S23 or Xiaomi 13. 

So the Zenfone 9 easily wins on battery and, especially, on Android. It also has other significant advantages over the 13 Mini (better display, USB-C, audio jack, typically a larger drive, fast fingerprint). Camera is worse than the 13 Mini's, but not by much; and I would argue it's a bit better if you use GCam, with its inherent limitations (I recommend Hasli 8.4 with the appropriate config file).

But keep in mind that the Apple is the significantly smaller phone. Indeed, it is currently unparallelled in size. So if this is a strong criterion (and you can live with iOS), go for the iPhone.
