I hate smartphones with bigger screen sizes above 5.5".
They should be handy(compact). My choice of perfect screen size is 4.9", 5", 5.2" 5.5" max with best of all features.
S6 User, 01 Oct 2018Yes, I would be happy with 1cm depth on any size phone, especially if it helps facilitate bett... moreI'm certainly with you here! Let's get devices designed for the human anatomy, and not just some silly designers boring lines....
And this goes for the UI-guidelines of the OS too!!! Phablets would not be so bad, if they could be put in a mode, where the full display is used to show info, but all interaction is limited to a user selectable area each user can reach comfortably with their thumb!!!
But on the device body. If you take a standard phablet, you can easily put two-three pencils behind it lengthwise while holding it in one hand, with the same grip.... And this space could be used for a larger battery!!
PLEASE give us back the removable backs and batteries, so we can be offered more than one type/size of battery back-pack. My ancient Samsung S300 had THREE different battery-packs - and that was 15(!!) years ago... https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_s300-375.php
And please anyone don't answer me the BS on thick devices if the battery is removable, here is one 5.9mm thick - and that is over ten years back
And more recently e.g. the 6.7mm of the 2014 Samsung Alpha https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_alpha-6573.php
And add a mm for a pack with 2800mAh and an IP67 rating.
e.g. 7.9mm for https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s5_(usa)-6338.php
Non-removable batteries are ALL about planned obsolescence...
...This would ALSO make it easy to offer an optional sliding keyboard back-pack for the same device.
The same device could reach a BROAD spectre of usage patterns.
I would LOVE to have a device like that, and use the keyboard back for daily productivity, a minimal slim battery-back for the dinner jacket, and a large back for the small trip...
Man, i wish sony release new phone like Xperia Ray with better spec...
SagarSK, 02 Oct 2018I can even go and demand a 5 inch with very less bezels or bezel less. Of course with mid rang... moreGOD that would be perfect for me!! and even better if its 18:9 ratio so the phone isn't wide!
Apple, if you give me a SE2. I will change my main phone to iOS, heck i would even buy a apple watch along with it to complete the ecosystem
Oxy, 02 Oct 2018I will really love a phone with a 5,2 inch with bezelless design. I can even go and demand a 5 inch with very less bezels or bezel less. Of course with mid range to high end specs.
I too believe the phones are getting too big. One example is the non-existent differences between a Note and the homonym S Plus series. There should be only one phablet that people can choose. Like Apple is doing right now with the XS Max. You want bigger phone? We have it for you, that's it!
Ro, S9 bezel-rich phone?! Are you even serious? If this is a bezel-rich phone, what about the
Iphones 6, 7 and 8? Or any Sony phone out there?
Who wouldn't like an Iphone SE (2) with a bezel-less display, like the X? Come on. I've been mostly a Samsung user, but recently I told my wife I'd switch to iPhone for the first time if they would come with an SE 2 with bezel-less display and a camera that would be at least as the Galaxy S9's camera.
But of course they won't. Like you said, they don't listen to the market. Not until their' sales come down.
Whoever the manufacturer would be, Samsung, Sony, Apple, Huawei etc., if one of them would come with a powerful SE 2 like phone, or Samsung Alpha size with bezel-less display and so on, they would win a hole bunch of customers.
Bro BRING ON THE SIZE! I won't rest until there's a GOOD phone with the latest chipset that I can purchase in the US that is at the 7" mark, anything over that is too big but this is what I need, nay, what I CRAVE.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2018Then people would end up complaining that theirs just to many. Like what Samsung did before pe... moreHaving more choice is what allows us as consumers pick products that serve our needs the best. And while the majority of people will still go for those hot mainstream flagships, there will be no shortage of those willing to take the alternative route either.
The Galaxy S9 is a nice phone to use but i wouldn't mind if it was slightly smaller, say 5.5 or 5.6 inches.
It depends. Screen to body ratio can go this far and eventually the bezels will srink to non existent.
An the same time though I see an increase in phone length lately. Take sony for example. Z5 is 146mm, Xz1 148mm, xz2 153mm, xz3 158mm.
So yeah obviously phones are getting bigger my dude. But as i said, screen to body ratio can only go that far. Companies will soon won't be able to go bigger.
As of today trends eat the entire mobile industry, and that's a bad thing. If you want to stay in game yeah, check different ideas but never remove features.
I still rock my z5, and while xz3 is tempting, it's lack of 3,5 jack, fm radio, lanyard port and small apps makes me say no.
If you companies want to evolve, do so! But taking features away is the exact opposite of evolution kiddos. You are playing badly and during your turn you say "i play feature removal"
Yeah.. Good move..

a) you can drill a small hole through
b) the covered part are kept WHITE when a keyboard normally would display, so the software apartment expected the hardware department to make the keyboard transparent !!!
You actually need big screen today. Sizes have grown because UI was evolving and new features couldn't bee added without bigger screens. But that doesn't mean that compact phones (4.5") are useless today.
Advantage of bigger screens is increased resolution. Imagine a 3" screen smartphone today with iOS12 or Android 9. Also, try using Facebook or Instagram on these. Even if it is 1080p, you will need to hold phone pretty close to see the details.
I remember my first keyboard phone with 1.8" screen. I was young and I had small hands. I remember time, when 3" touchscreen fell the most comfortable to use.
These are screen sizes of phones, that I had :
I miss the compact phones too, but today 5.5" doesn't seem too big. If someone introduced 5.5" phone 10+ years ago, everyone would say ''It is a tablet''.

Also anyone who isn't bothered about the latest specs, I saw the budget J line mentioned alot, but the A line is the Midrange.
The 5.2" Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) (brand new) is selling for Â€/£180:

Personally I'm not looking for a 5" phone but for those of you who have scoured the Phone Finder with no joy, there are quite a few releases in October.
In the rumours section there are a couple like the 5.4" Google Pixel 3 or the 5.5" Nokia 9:
Hope you find what you're looking for soon :)
