no, its dumb...you have a lot of good small devices....and when you try a bigger one you always want a little bigger
first try then talk ;)
My preference would be 4.5" at 720p.
Have the weight saved from having a smaller device going to better build quality or higher capacity battery.
Motorola understands people very well. they are coming with some outstanding devices with mid size screen and high end specs. Here is what Motodesigner Jim Wicks said: "There are some people that like a big display, but there's also a lot of people that want something that's just about right... I think 'just right' is important, and we're designing so we don't disappoint those people."
the specs of phone that i really want is a 5.3 inch with dual core qualcom APQ8064+ 2.0 ghz and a 1.5gb of ram and above average gpu for 1080p 1600 x 2560 of resolution.. that will be so sharp, dont knw how sharp is the ppi yet
the 4.2 inch could be smal for my hand.. but its good for others so it would be ecxactly fit on their hands... and i would choose that tegra 4 cpu. for it is 72 GPU cores.. thats wwwwwwwwwwwoooooowwwwwwwww
To the many readers who want a smaller screen but wouldn't sign because they disagree with the proposed specification, you guys are missing the point.
The point is to make it known to the manufacturers that there is a market with smaller phone without compromise to performance.
Every brand has their preference. Samsung will likely always gives expandable storage and removable battery. HTC will try another aluminum unibody at the expense of the what Samsung gives.
But when top end small screen phone started coming out, only then can we start to choose our own preference.
Here is another matter stopping the manufacturers though;
Samsung for example, would rather brag that it sold 50million S3 than to report 30million of S3 and 20million of S3 mini sold (even assuming both have the same internal and price).

Signed petition couple of days ago. So, I think that Xperia Ray almost falls under "small, stylish yet powerful enough" device description. It's sad that Sony didn't present any successor of such a stylish and interesting device. I absolutely agree that not all people need big screens. Many never watch videos or browse internet on their smartphones, however they still need a flexibility of modern OS in compact, thin and stylish body. Let's see if manufacturers decide to make such device and meanwhile people who don't need a huge screens might look at iPhone 4s, 5 (agree that not everyone can afford iPhone) or Motorola Razr i (4.3 screen in compact body plus excellent battery).
Babu, 18 Apr 2013yeah I don't like huge phones, this are the features I would like to see on a smartphone 1. d... morei ma agree with babu's demand.same feature i also wants in my phone but the only change is thickness should not be more than 9mm. and the diplay should be of 290ppi or above so it will be more crisp and more easier to read text.
processor-1.2 ghz quad core
720 p screen
design like htc one...
HOPE HTC LAUNCHES HTC ONE PLUS AND HTC ONE MINI
Signed, and spread the word please! Everyday millions of people have hand cramp just because of massive phones!!
GSMARENA you need to pin this post. You cant hope that people sign the petition if its out of the news list !!
Rad-K, 18 Apr 2013Dat big screen! Can't jump to a smaller once tried let's say Note2. And of course the bigger a... morewe're not talking about a 3.5" inch phone here. A 4.3 screen can easily be fit into something even smaller than the razr i. I dont think its too much to ask for a flagship phone thats pocketable. How do you even get a note into your pocket?
