Just do a size by size comparison and you'll see only those two can be considered compact. The S8 even if it has bezels is hardly compact, same with the others.

If that is the case, iPhone SE should have won this poll. iPhone 8? The most compact of them lot? iPhone 8 is little taller and wider than S8, then how come it will be a compact? I agree with the poll, S8 is by far compact flagship which has more screen in a smaller body as a bonus apart from flagship grade internals than all the flagships mentioned here.
Vineet290, 24 Dec 2017Surprised!! Android Authority crowned Huawei P10 as phone of the year 2017, and here it's on l... moreAnd the ranking of some flawed. I'm not saying that mate 10 pro is not a good phone, but it's battery score is 40 points better than the note8, and that puts mate 10 pro 7 points better than the note 8. In reality in all battery tests, mate 10 pro battery is not much better than note 8 despite a much bigger battery.
Should've been just a battle between the iPhone 8 and XZ1 Compact, nothing more, nothing less.
Anonymous, 24 Dec 2017So you call this 5.8in monstrosity compact? Then you should have also included the iPhone X in... moreYeah right. Idk how the heck did those bezel less irrelevants made it here. P10 with 5.2" screen was considered compact, so where's the regular XZ1 with the same exact dimensions but even better screen quality (HDR vs non-HDR)?
Whoever made the poll where they included the >5" screen phones is High AF and smoked too much weed. There should have only been two choices: iPhone 8 and the XZ1 Compact. All others cannot be considered compact because of their bigger screens.
Anything above 5.5 is not compact and how did Mi6 got more votes than P10 and Note8 is winning big size poll with probably iPhone X being second

Anonymous, 24 Dec 2017So you call this 5.8in monstrosity compact? Then you should have also included the iPhone X in... moreCompactness is more because of width rather than height & X is wider than S8 & much heavier.
Anonymous, 24 Dec 20175.8 screen in an 5 inch body....so yes it is compactwell, compact is relative, for me >5" isn't compact anymore, everyone has different opinions. But, most people in this world aren't born with big hands.
Definition compact is blur, why s8 is compact, is note 8 become mid size?
LyleJP, 24 Dec 2017Compact. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it does.iPhone SE is Compact. Xperia XZ1 Compact is Compact. The iPhone 8 is mid-sized. Everything else is big.

This time last year, I still used an iPhone 5. (itÂ‘s the first birthday of my iPhone 7, I bought it for Christmas :) I can tell you one thing: 4.7in is absolutely enough for everything)
So you call this 5.8in monstrosity compact? Then you should have also included the iPhone X instead of the iPhone 8, because that is even smaller than the S8.
Avovymous, 24 Dec 20175.8" ain't a compact to me :3It isn't at all. I know no one could reach any area of the 5.8" screen using just one thumb and one hand. Except giants, which finds tablets as their compact devices.
Kiyasuriin, 24 Dec 20175.8in 18.5:9 = 16:9 5.2in. so yes. IT IS compact. :P5.2" ain't compact either. In that case, why is the XZ1 not in the list with the 5.2" screen?
Forget about bezels. Pretty sure that a 5.8" screen required two hands to be navigated all over.
My thumb could reach the whole screen of the iPhone 8, so that defines a true compact phone. Can't do the same for the S8.
Anonymous, 24 Dec 20175.8 screen in an 5 inch body....so yes it is compactCompact means can be operated with one hand. It only feels compact, but the screen can't be used with just one hand and one finger.
