CptPower, 17 Aug 2019Please tell me which phone of this size from past had simmilar or better specs for its price.
... moreWhy compare past devices? I am telling that this phone required zero R&D cost (i don't think a group of thinkers/scientists was needed to make a 3.3-inch screen with an outdated OS).
The BOM to make this phone would be tiny because everything is tiny. They have saved up big time on the costs. But no savings is passed to the consumer. It is not like they have a stable ecosystem or great services to offer along with this phone.
BTW Z1 compact was a powerhouse for its time. Any phone picked from Z1 compact era will sound like a bad idea now.
Inverted snowhuouV, 18 Aug 2019It makes no sense to spend $350 on a back up phone, better buy a dumb phone. If you're buying ... moreBut this tiny thing have everything it should be great even as main phone.
I bought the phone 2 weeks ago.... I am SUPER happy! Best, most practical phone in years. I had iPhone and other ones but this I really like.
It has no headphone jack and that is a deal breaker. I would've probably bought it to get away from the gigantic sizes of today but no headphone jack, no dice.
It's kinda wasted. here my suggestion, how about a size like an iphone se, screen design like a note 10+ and a stock rom from Miui.
lol, 18 Aug 2019why so hard to make it 4.6 inch again?thats exactly my question... the last amazing device i have seen was Iphone SE

Hilariously funny List of devices, thank you for that! I wanted to buy all of them.
I think, each of them does the job better as (strictly) secondary devices, not at least because of their reasonable price tags.
However, as a primary device the Palm is more sophisticated.
I bought mine new on eBay. The Verizon version is quite cheap there.
Nevertheless, sadly with this Verizon firmware on it, it is just in line with this China phones from above. Not useable as a main device.
Maybe things get better with this new release as an Â“openÂ” device..

There's an untapped market for small flagship phones. This phone ain't it but it proves it can be done in 2019. A mini iPhone or Pixel or Samsung S would sell like hotcakes.

I prefer the latter dude. Besides, I doubt this phone's durability.

it seems Verizon decided to release it as stand alone phone so it had network radio but couldn't make call himself!(it supposed to be accessory for android phones as Verizon charges 10$ per month for it)

Well at lest it is good for me but the price is yet unacceptable!
So not going to buy it!
