Nice to see some qwerty comments. I totally agree nokia made some excellent ones (using e7 atm). What is wrong with 1 decent android/wp qwerty phone from each manufacturer!
I don't care. For me 4.8" is better than 4" inch. And btw, you have Xperia ZL.
dn forget a BIG battery!! it should last 2 days without charging at least! like once on a whole weekend!
Totally agree. I have perfect sized HTC Legend but really need to upgrade it now but can't find any replacement device suitable for me just because all new devices are so big.
Thanks GSMArena - please make our voice be heard!
qwerty, 15 Apr 2013Id much rather sign a petition to bring more qwerty devices back, im currently using a blackbe... moreCould not agree more. I just dream about a quality Android device with a decent screen size and a good QWERTY keyboard. But there are none.
There is RAZR i/M and iPhone in this segment. Look at Sony V bezels! They are huge. 65mm width for 4.3" device is too much.
I would like to see one of the following:
1. A powerful version of Xperia mini pro.
2. A Samsung Galaxy pro that doesn't have cheap specs because it has a smaller screen.
3. An Slide qwerty phone like BB Torch with a screen no larger than 3.5 inch and a top range.
4. A fairy Godmother.
AnonD-109996, 15 Apr 2013I feel Sony Xperia S was closest to what you profess, but alas not the top of the line process... moreBoth the Xperia S and the Galaxy S2 had 4.3" displays, so what is your point? The Xperia s had was 128mm tall with a 4.3" display, while the Razr HD was 131mm tall with a 4.7" display while the Razr M is 122mm with a 4.3" display, so i think that the Xperia S is bigger than it should be
Id much rather sign a petition to bring more qwerty devices back, im currently using a blackberry and its terrible but i will not change i have owned an x10 galaxy ace and Razr Maxx and work in a phone shop so have tried every other. All touchscreens are awefull to type on full stop. Bring back keyboards for god sake
I got iPhone5 because of size and I'm disappointed.
All the back buttons are in the top of the screen, need to stretch your finger.
And I think bezel is too much for a high end device in 2013. Is iPhone 5 high-end at all?
The Xperia V by far, good specs, good battery, great display, slim. Looks good, great camera, almost perfect balance power and size, good work sony. Big screen is just a selling point and overkill in my opinion
it is true that phones got pretty big, but what's the point in having all that power if you don't have a decent screen to work on? you can not fully experience a high end smartphone without having a big screen on it, it's a pain to surf web pages and do stuff on small screens, i curently have a galaxy s2 and i love it but to be honest i would like a bigger screen, i like the s3 with its 4,7 inch screen, s4 is perfect having a 5inch screen in a smaller body than the s3, so i don't really see the prob, s3 sold great with its size, s4 is perfect bigger screen, smaller phone, i love the way full hd vids look on s3 great, can't wait to see them on s4.
Is this for real? We are now at the stage that we have to PETITION for a NORMAL phone lol 4.2 isn't nearly a compact phone. Just because phablets are IN right now doesn't make them a sensible gadget. I still think phones will come back to normal size soon.
I wonder why touchscreen-only phones get all the love.
Why cant we petition for a touchscreen phone that also has a qwerty keyboard. The best form of this type of phone is not even the Nokia E7 or HTC Desire Z, but the Dell Venue Pro.
I love my Lumia920, but I still use my Bold9780 with it because of the great keyboard. I want a keyboard-touchscreen combo like the Dell Venue Pro!!

xperia ray and the iphone 4s, are the best phones for people who would like m... moreMy dad has a Ray, and he's absolutely thrilled with it.
I have a 4,2" Arc S and it's great, just the resolution could be a bit better.
