I have mammoth size hands, that I could easily use a Galaxy Note II with one hand (I've tried), but I don't have such big pockets on any of my pants - specifically my back left side where my Blackberry (don't judge, it's my old phone, my two year old son donated my android to the floor) currently resides - so less, I think would be awesome!!!!
it depends on you hands,my phone has 3,7 inch screen but i could easily use bigger screen,i saw xperia z and its not much bigger than my phone,anyways people carried lot bigger phones than these in past and those were considered compact dont see whats the deal
yan, 15 Apr 2013"Despite the large number of companies committed to the Android cause, there's not a sing... moreThe Xperia T shud b good enuff. The s4 krait shud b enuff for daily usage n the 13mp shud b more than capable as a mobile phone's camera. The 720 4.55 screen shud suffice as well
GSM Arena, you read my mind. Count with my sign and support for this petition.
Sony Xperia V would be the only phone that's close enough to satisfy these requirements. Only thing that doesn't fully do it is the Snapdragon S4. Don't know what's available in other places, this at least is the only one in the Netherlands.
people want to have with different screen sizes so manufacturers should design high end phones with different sizes as people want unlike samsung mini series i like to say the best platform in the world is android thats y even small manufacturers also will be growing and small manufacturers offer dual sim,large screens with low cost
A smartphone is a lot more than a phone and a lot of people now use it more for apps and web browsing than merely chat or make calls: there is no way that sacrificing those major aspects of a smartphone is better in any way for the user. I believe there are 2 possibilities to slim down in a more pocketable form these machines: 1) reduce bezels and 2) slim down the android UI (it still fill up too much of the screen).
I own an HTC One S and every time I look at a full screen app I always find myself thinking "this screen is gigantic" and then I go back and it feels so small because of the persistent notification bar and all the UI choices that reduce the actual screen to no more than a 3.5" area.
rumors say Sony will make the successor of Xperia Ray ( Xperia Ray 3 )
4-4.3" inch , MSM8974 2.3ghz, 2500mAh, 2GB RAM, 32GB Internal
just check esato forum for the detail or check this
I completely agree with you. There needs to be a compact high-end Android smart phone.
Well, the xperia s fits into that description. And the chipset is enough. Just needs better optomised software
But if I'm not wrong
Sony XPERIA series have had 720 displays with 4.3" screen size with dual core krait processor
It were them who made the really compact and sexy XPERIA ray which was a mid range device that TIME
But yes more makers should follow
HTC One x is the max size i can tolerate. I loved the HTC vivd but would have loved the same size with 4'7 and 720p screen and snapdragon. HTC one VX and motorola razr-i seem like bieng on the money.
Hate to mention the elephant in the room but and this is awkward... SONY HAS!!! Sony Xperia SP IT'S ON HERE. 4.55" 720p s4 processor decent camera etc Search it!
Sorry, but why can't you just buy a Motorola? They have edge to edge displays. Also, I have a Nexus 4 and it's not that big. It cam easily fit in my hands and pockets.
Let's not get too worried about 1080p on a 4.3" screen being an overkill. I'd like to see such a display being launched in a prototype first, and the manufacturer should let reviewers see it and write their opinions about it. it'd obviously be very sharp, and a gem of a phone to have. For me, 4.3 is enough. and of course the latest software, hardware and camera. OEMs need to understand that flagship smartphone sales would double if the body is compact. and yes, a bezel-less display would be a joy to behold..
I think the recently announced Xioami MI2S fits the description. 4.3 inch with a snapdragon 600 and 720p resolution and i think it beat the S4 in the antutu benchmark and it has a decent camera at the back and front.
I feel Sony Xperia S was closest to what you profess, but alas not the top of the line processor.
though, it was impressive how they fitted a 720p screen in 4.3", the same size of Galaxy S2.
hats off for sony for being too early to the market. not a good thing i suppose, but they did get it right back then.
