Any words about the Galaxy Mini?
"Here's hoping we see a XZ Compact soon."
This, the last sentence is what I anticipate.

Anonymous, 14 May 2017I am looking for a 4.7" 720p pro mobile from android With tiny bezels. Have you seen the Samsung Galaxy A3 2017? It has a 4.7" HD screen. The top and bottom bezels are decent (nothing like the LG G2 mini in terms of bezels), has a fingerprint scanner and other features. The hardware is midrange but decent and so is the battery. The downside is the price compared to bigger phones with better specs but for 300 bucks you even get ip68 certification and that is a lot cheaper than an iPhone 7.
4.7" 1080p is what I want in Sony's next compact flagship but still maintaining the same body dimensions. It would slim the bezels to near-XA levels and keep it at a reasonable level still that it still gets to have a fingerprint scanner.

How tf do you activate or reach the hamburger menus of browsers or apps on the uppermost areas of the screen?
At least people can simply praise Sony to do well with compact flagships.
Henning Lund, 14 May 2017I had the Xperia X10 mini pro and was happy with it., but yes the screen was very small. Boug... moreIt was so small? Then I do believe it just did what its name says. It's a mini phone, so why is everyone expecting it to be at 5.5" anyway? That doesn't make any sense
One of my relatives managed to snag a Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus back in 2012 off of Ebay, my god, that thing was actually built quite well because they weren't known to take care of their phones at all.
I pulled out my old Moto E from 2014, my god, this thing still glides. Okay, it has issues with the new YouTube app, but it's better than you think it'd be taking into account this version never updated past 4.4.4
Of the mentioned phones in the article I have owned the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini and I still own the Nokia N97 mini.
My HTC explorer (PICO) is still in good condition and running smooth with custom roms. I feel it's the best compact smartphone I ever had. Now I'm looking forward to but new compact phone and with the price slashed of iphone SE in India, it seems like a good deal for everyone who wants to get compact phone in 2017.
4,6" screen with 16:9 aspect ratio bezelless durable and big baterry with 24/1 screen on time, HD is enough but FHD is better more than that just buy TV! Excellent camera is optional, great? A must! but i'll take DSLR any day. It seems impossible but chips are getting smaller yet phones are getting bigger
Back in the days when minis were actually minis. Now they are just lesser MAX sizes.
HTC Wildfire S was the best compact phone of its times!
I had used both X10 mini & xperia minis. I loved both of them.
Limitations of X10 mini like not having hotspot option (android 2.1 limitation) forced me to learn rooting and tweaking on android.
I was amazed when Google Sky Map (Now its just Sky Map) showed how accurate compass & accelerometer is.
I did use bigger android like UIs with them, like Go Launcher, one of the times uninstalling stock launcher brought me to lots of trouble..
I learned android from those little and durable xperias. I had them for at least 4 years. They were both fully functional the last time i saw them. Dont even know where they are now. Xperia mini kept its official (rooted n debloated) ROM while the X10 mini had a miniCM android 4.1 the last time i remember. Havent seen any of them for a year now. :(
