lanly, 17 Apr 2013I agree with you 100 % .iphone wasted more space at the top and bottom. nokia lumia 620 and ot... moreIts basic ergonomics.
iPhone is designed with landscape and portrait usage in mind.
When you use in portrait, normally using 1 hand, thus the bezel is thin, so your thumb have maximum touch comfort vs reach.
Same with landscape, (fine with 2 hands) but if you decide to hold your phone in one hand, you have to cover the front of the phone for grip. If you look carefully, you see the top and bottom bezel match that of a standard human finger width.
A phone without bezel will be uncomfortable, prone to dropping, and unusable with one hand, and your fingers will cover part of the screen. Not practical, but look nice thou ;D
7" screen amoled display with 1080p resolution with corning glass protection with dual sim gsm service with water resistant with radio with octa core chipset with video recording 1080p@60frps with hd front camera capable of 1080p video rec with s pen with 5000mah battery and other all latest features which samsung can
For me the best specs for a android phone is:
Thin and light phone,
4.5 to 4.8 inches (720p or 1080p)SuperAmoled Screen,
A 8mp or 13mp camera shooter and front facing camera(of course),
3100 mAh for long lasting battery
And last but not the least a FM radio because some people are still using it.
Totally agree. I carry 2 phones - a SG Note & a Xperia Go.
I would love for 1 of these to be a high powered, small on size phone. Like a powerful hatchback ;)
While we are at petitions - can we also have :
1. The Green & Red call answer & reject buttons BACK! Touchscreens are fine. But ever so often it is inconvenient to SLIDE across. (Love the option in all Samsungs to program the 'Home' button to accept a call & the power button to reject/end)
2. DEDICATED HARDWARE CAMERA KEY. Those are a boon to click in so many scenarios. While the volume rocker & power key are standard, I am sure a teensy camera shutter key is too much to ask for.
I'd like to see more high-end phones with slider qwerty keyboard and with Ubuntu OS, because Android dosen't have adequate keyboard support and is lacking sane multitasking (l miss my N900 very much)
AnonD-5533, 16 Apr 2013I would like to point out here that its not just the screen size but the overall phone size as... moreI agree with you 100 % .iphone wasted more space at the top and bottom. nokia lumia 620 and other models have more free space at the bottom. same is with htc one, though i don't say wasted but it took more space at the bottom to fit in the cap keys and speaker which resulted in the shifting of screen away from the center of the phone. because of that it is a little longer than one x which has also 4.7 inch screen, . samsung's latest galaxy phones especially the upcoming mega 6.3 utilize more area for the screen and put it exactly in the center of the phone.where the distance from top and bottom to the screen is equal. this should be followed by all manufacturers.
I'm not willing to drop on screen real estate. That is the best feature of these big phones. My kids love watching movies and playing games on a bigger screen and I don't want to carry a tablet around. Imagine I give them a small screen like the I-phone 5. No thanks.
yeah!, this is great ! .. for me an ideal size of a phone is just like the size of iphone 5 , for me 4 inch of screen is enough, 5 inch+ size screen of a phone is to much big.
AnonD-77780, 17 Apr 2013Xperia ZL. No, S4 is still not as compact as the ZL.Who said S4 is compact? Since the S3 release, the term "compact" has been deleted in their vocabulary. 4-4.5 inch phone with s4/zl features is what you call compact.. a midsized phone with powerful features :)
i dont compromise on adequate camera. i settle for impressive camera. i mean. how many people will use their phone camera? right. everyone.
AnonD-87833, 16 Apr 2013My Perfect Mobile -Display: Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors 768 x 1280 p... moreugh.. not even perfect.. 4" phone with 3100mah.. men that will be thick as brick..
Wish gsm arena can make petition for fm radio as standar.. we at here don always hav 24/7 connectivity, so and fm radio is a must!
We should start on online petition for inclusion of FM radio...
It was recently removed on Galaxy S4 and probably on all future Samsung phones too :-(
When Samsung announced Galaxy SII Plus, I was hoping that they will upgrade the chipset and the display with 720p, but it was disappointment.
That could have been the answer to this petition already...
What about Xiaomi 2s? 32GB version has 4.3 inch screen with the insides of an HTC one.
Someone please tell NOKIA to enter in this segment and remind them to make thinner phones this time.

If they want the best deal, they have to pick 5 inch 1080p.
There simply is no smaller alternative.
Hope to see smaller device soon.. these big plated phones are getting ridiculous.
