I would personally like a compact phone with a 4.3-4.5 inch screen. A phone like the HTC one s but not as much wasted space on top of the screen and with a really good processor.
Fruitcake, 16 Apr 2013Since the Samsung Galaxy S2 we have seen no really outstanding 4" smartphone on Android,b... moreThere is no reason to pack a very high technical spec into a small screen device. It is just as wastage!
You can't compare iPhone 5 that has a small screen liked 4"with other 4"devices because iPhone 5 is the only flagship phone from Apple.
Since the Samsung Galaxy S2 we have seen no really outstanding 4" smartphone on Android,but with the Iphone 4S still the Best one out there,we have seen nothing really to compete with the 4S so Apple will be really happier,so hope now the mobile produces see this debate an start offering more High Class 4" Smartphones,i will like so see what the Galaxy S4 mini will offer us,an I bet its not a 13 mega-pixel camera but a 8 mega one,letting people down again
One more point is missed - BATTERY, what the hell is going on with flags??? Give as these 2000-2200mAh batteries in mid-range and use 3000mAh over in high-end smartphones.
So sorry, I won't sign this petition.
And with xenon flash!
Those mobiles with led flashs are useless in indoor photos and in dark places!
The question is: because the market, the mobile producers don´t want to make a high-end compact Android smartphone in mid segment! If they answer to the present request they will loose sales in the high-end android segment.
Its true and sad at same time...
Xiaomi mi-2, 15 Apr 2013Totally Agree! That's why I ordered the Xiaomi Mi-2. This is the last M size super smartphone. Agreed, I've bought a Xiaomi Mi2 (which has already been superseded by the Mi2S) but it's the best phone I've ever seen in person, my friends all have Note 2's and I don't understand the desire for such a lack of pocket space..
gsm arena we really appreciate ur efforts , time is not far away when we the consumers get what we want and not anything which the producers has to offer
Can it be not very expensive? Can it please be made by HTC or ASUS?
i agree with this petition @gsmarena , but i think there could be a smarter way of saying it .. like mentioning the dimensions of the phone rather than mentioning the screen size ,, if you ask me ,, the max dimensions for a smartphone these days should 126 mm x 65 mm(or 67) .. anything more than that starts going , such frame can suit a 4.7" screen if bezels are managed smartly! ,, so bezels should be smaller , not screens!
But mid size still sucks a lot, while there is a 1200mAh battery! Dear friends! I vote for smartphone with decent chip and chipset, screen 3,7-4 inch IPS screen, with nice resolution 270ppi+, 8Mp camera (for now), and at least 2700mAh battery!!!!
What is the point of packing a powerful processor in something that will not use it due to the tiny screen? The Nokia 808 is the only adequate camera and it is not even available in high devices. Go buy an iPhone or stop wearing the skinny jeans already peoples.
Let us ask for useful things like real buttons, not capacitive garbage. A real trigger button for that adequate camera. A real home button (thank you Sammy!), real menu and back buttons. Real call and end call buttons. A real freaking keyboard. The iPhone is for consumption, make Android useful again by giving us buttons, not toy touch screen interfaces for babies.
I would love to see a dual core or quad core 4 inch phone, with camera at least like the N8 quality, running android, got a flash light+xenon flash.
AnonD-46506, 15 Apr 2013Phablets or phone that have screen larger than 4.5" are stupid. I have a Nexus 4 but I do... moreWell your nexus 4 with its 4.7 screen is similar in dimensions with my sony xperia ZL (5 screen). So, instead of buying a tablet you should do more research. Calling anything bigger than your current screen stupid doesn't make sense at all. Ignorant!
For example Samsung. When Samsung made Galaxy S3 and Note 2 , they made Galaxy S3 mini, too. Right?
But why Galaxy S3 mini wasn't with the same specs like other two?
Is it just mistake? Well not to look paranoid, but I could say the no-high-end screen or the chip of S3 mini I could neglect. But to put only 5mp camera on it, is too much, to be just a mistake.
Only possible explanation for me, is that Samsung leave this size high end, for Apple. It can not be explained some other way.
Why? What is the deal? Ask them.
So, no petitions will help here.
