The purpose of Honami Mini is to appeal to the iPhone crowd who wants to switch over to Android, but doesn't want a half-arsed phone like all the other Minis out there. That's why it's not 4.5-4.7", because then it'd be too large. If you want a bigger superphone then get Honami itself. If you want something inbetween, then the ZR is a nice fit, even if it isn't as powerful.

4 inch is just too small now a days. I think the ideal screen size should be 4.5" or 4.6". I think Sony can squeeze a 4.7" on a 4.5" screen phone with the help of narrow bezel, just like xperia XL.

I wanted small but this is just too small. I wanted a 4.3 inch phone but I doubt this is even 4. Why Sony. Whyyyyy???

I could take sharper images with the 2005 phone with a VGA fixed-focus camera that I had. And now we're in 2013 and photos are blurrier than ever. And, of course, the wood behind the phones is sharper than the phones themselves???

i hope it dont have 3 onscreen buttons. I hope it has real buttons. But nice specs. Need a little less width. Looks fat due to this. Just my opinion

If those dimensions are right, then it is likely that the phone has a 3.7" screen. Xperia Sola (3.7") had dimensions of 116x59mm so this one might have the same screen with smaller bezels.

Or if it has as slim bezels as Xperia Zl had, then 4.0" may just fit in.

I will definitely buy. Time will come that 4.3 screens will be more expensive than 5-inch or more smartphones for delusional bear-handed people.
