AnonD-88967, 16 Apr 2013Good. U got a point. But mate see iPhone design speaker at bottom pannel. Isn't that a good id... moredepends on the where in the back of the phone speaker is placed. My Xperia Neo V has a curved back and the speaker is just near to where it touches the surface so its soundwaves are squeezed and bounce off the surface hence creating a louder noise than what a speaker does on side or front. I have tried this out with many phones and its true, it does actually work very well!!
Well, sadly no manufacturer will pressumably apply top notch hardware to a phone which they can hardly make money out of.
Still, hope this petition works!
AnonD-70018, 16 Apr 2013Someone is finally asking for this! I think 4.2 might still be a bit too big, though. Honestly... moreEhhhh that the Iphone screen sizes ...You didnt really think , now did you
This Quest is surely what everyone wants , but it comes down to cost of these mid size super phones ...More tech costs more building costs more testing cost ... But if you just hang on a while this will be the norm.
Totally agree I want to upgrade my note to note 2 ,just not buying because of size
Personally i think that the HTC HD2 had the perfect size/format and you *could* replace the battery, and i would love to see HTC or Sony to come up with some high end stuff in a similar package (talking Xperia Z style here with a decent camera and Xenon flash). BTW why the hell they don't put Xenon flash on high end phones these days? Don't put much hope for Samsung as their design is well... below par
a phone -android- that i can control the entire screen with only one thump while it rests on four fingers + high specs + color black = a dream
but 4.2" display is too big..
3.5" display is best
4" display is the max
The perfect phone would be the Galaxy S2 I9100 with a quad core processor of the S3 or S4 as the screen will be smaller than the current flagship and battery will also last longer and the sleek design still holds its ground quite capably. Just the screen resolution needs to be increased with brightness. Else, the perfect design.
you guys just put on writing what i want. Definatly handy phone whit a kick so hard that you enjoy it.
This article is very good I feel that a phone is a device that can be operated with one hand and easy to hold and carry.
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2013Galaxy S3 mini would be pretty good for this.Latest chipset will be in the S4 mini I am sure. ... moreThe s3 mini had/has very mid range specs. Basically, they want the same hardware, exact same, with a smaller screen. S3 had a quad core 1.4GHz processor, S3 mni had 1GHz dual core. S3 had a Mali-400MP GPU, S3 Mini had Mali-400. S3 had 16/32/64GB options, S3 mini had 8/16GB. The S4 mini would need to have the same processor as the S4, same GPU, same battery, the only difference should be the size and resolution of the screen.
garry, 16 Apr 2013I beg to disagree. though having speakers in the front is a nice idea , the htc one's design h... moreGood. U got a point. But mate see iPhone design speaker at bottom pannel. Isn't that a good idea. ? B/c speaker @ back of phone just chokes the sound. Especially annoying for Calls. If v r in other rooms so it is difficult to hear.
I love big phones, but not too big- 4.6-5.0 is enough for me other than that considered as oversized. :)
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2013Galaxy S3 mini would be pretty good for this.Latest chipset will be in the S4 mini I am sure. ... morethis petition is about wanting high end component on mid size phone..
on s3 mini,there only mid end component eg: so. check what soc used in s3 mini..
and for upcoming s4 mini,rumours only states that their only used new generation of exynos but it is mid end soc. not like on s4..
Someone is finally asking for this! I think 4.2 might still be a bit too big, though. Honestly I think it should be smaller. Maybe 4 inch? 3.5?
My specs for a dream phone:
- 125*65*10mm size, 125g weight
- 4.2" display 16M colors, 330+ pixel density
- IP57 certified body, carbon fibre rollcage and aluminium cover
- 2200 mAh battery
- Quad core Krait CPU, Adreno 320 GPU, 2 GB RAM
- LTE, 3G, GSM capability
- WiFi b/g/n with hotspot and DLNA
- 8 MP back, 1.3 MP front cam
- GPS, with A-GPS and GLONASS
- 8GB user available internal storage, SD card slot
- HTML5 browser
- Dedicated mic for noise supression
- JellyBean out of the box
if i could have a phone tailormade i would go for:
an HTC ONE S that has 720p, quadcore Kraits, 32/64Gb internal storage (don't care for external storage if i have that amount of builtin storage), adreno 320/330 GPU, and a bit larger battery..
NOTHING DIFFERENT, it has to look exactly the same as the original ;)
The Xiaomi M2 and latest M2S are the last super smartphones of decent size (4.3"): IPS 720p screen with beautifull colors, 2GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of internal memory, Adreno 320, quad core processor (s4 pro at 1.5Ghz for M2 and Snapdragon 600 for M2S!!!) and decent camera (8Mpx for M2 and M2S 16GB, 13Mpx for M2S 32GB) capable of 8 shot per second and 1080p video (or 720p at 90fps to make slow motion movie). The MIUI ROM is imo fabulous and most important: the ROM is UPDATED EVERY WEEK! Just recently they updated to JB their first phones (M1 and M1S) from 3 years ago. What to desire more?
I feel like this is mainly a Samsung trait, but they being the leader of Android smartphones will set the pace for other makers to follow suit. It seems like Motorola and to some extent HTC understand that bigger isn't always what users want when it comes to new phones. Several of the upcoming Motorola phones - while they may not be as powerful as the latest Samsung offering - have quite modest 4 inch screen sizes. We also have to keep in mind that HTC's previous series of 'One' phones did come in three sizes, and while the small one was pretty basic, the One S was still a pretty powerful phone for 95% of us out there.
