Shame on manufacturers i cannot find a dual sim phone with 4.5 inch screen and 3 gb ram even though i am ready to pay a premium i am stuck with s4 mini and i am waiting from F**ing 2 years to buy a decent phone. if iPhone makes a dual sim will switch to iOS i am fed up with andriod quality and manufacturers. Google will introduce some bug or remove a good feature in every new Android version to re-introduce in the next iteration to bring down user experience down so that they will upgrade when new version comes. Cheap tricks from google. Android manufacturers are flooding the phone market with big screen phones now so that they can introduce bendable phone from 2018 which could be extended to double the screen size when opened like a book. eg : Samsung GalaxyX therefore everyone has to upgrade again coz of the new Fad.That's how these manufacturers are/can sustain revenue growth. Truth is manufacturers cannot push for Hardware performance more than what it is now people are not expecting to watch 3d movies on mobile we can already see limitation on primary camera currently.

The quality of the screen/camera... moreHave been using phones with screen sizes of 4-4.7 inches for years now, without problems. And yes, I use lots of different apps. I really don't want screens larger than 4.5 inches. Would prefer even smaller ones.
I don't deny people to have large screens, but I really think the market needs to be diversified. There should be several options, not just big screens everywhere. I chose Android mainly because I wanted to have several options, but now the market doesn't offer me any phones I can use. That's very frustrating.
To me, a phone is about portability, so I don't want to be forced to use the phone with two hands. I need flexibility. Can't get that if both hands are required to use the phone.
Compact and mini phones do have demand but specs should not be midrange it needs to be high end
I think the usability of apps on small phones aren't as good. The quality of the screen/camera is wasted at that size. Apps will be way smaller, accessibility is lower too. These aren't phones, they are pocket PCs. Unless there was a small/mini phone that had only a few apps on it or was restricted, I don't think the small phone market will see many small phones at all. Evolution.

138mm?? WTF, even the BIG Redmi 2 Pro was only 135mm with 4.7". This is 5mm more than it has to be. It's just 1-2 mm shorter than the 5" Redmi 4X. :-/ Which is probably have th price of this with 4100 mAh battery.
i expect 4k video recording from this phone...........the design and specs of this phone reminds me the galaxy alpha,the predecessor of A-series
gab, 27 May 2017OMG, this phone is a GODSEND. a small phone with actual decent specs, AND is waterproof? im... moreSure, it's not so wide, but it still is quite tall so I wouldn't call it small. Even so, if you feel this is a phone for you, well...great.
