Do you really think that enough people would want a sub 4" SGS4 or One to warrant the development costs?
True Facts, 09 Sep 2013WP8 have choice to make small phones.
Android have no choice in making small phones.
Bec... moreIndeed. Its just WP is a better optimzed OS doesnt need multiple cores to run smoothly unlike android. Low end WPs will just run almost the same as their handware counterpart the only limitation is the ram but this is not a huge problem if youre not into gaming.
No low end android can run as good as low end windows phone. Android is just a power hungry monstrosity. Its just a matter of time WP will dominate low end market with 520s and 620s.

There is a demand for small phones as there are for large ones.
People have ZERO choice in this matter when it comes to android.
An android phone of ip3gs or ip5 or s1, totally have no processing power or battery life with current technology standard.

If they wanted to buy small screen devices they would make them.... small screen devices are now (typically) for people who want a basic, cheap device.
WP8 have choice to make small phones.
Android have no choice in making small phones.
Because if there is a iPhone5 sized android phone, it will have crap battery backup, and weak processing ability and lagging.
WP8 have no such limitation.
No to giant phones, 09 Sep 2013"Buying in the millions" have in no means any relation to innovation.
What innova... moreLike everything change is normally evolutionary not revolutionary. Externally a phone might not look like it has changed much but there are still massive technological happening.
For example, on the note 3 qualcomm has designed an envelope tracker that reduces 4G power consumption by 30%. The big improvements in devices at the moment are processor power consumption, battery quality, screen quality and software.... I get the sense you are looking for a folding device or something?
That thing is a looker much better than samdung note 3. If Nokia went android Samsung should be sweating buckets right now. Nokias build quality and design is top notch but WP OS is getting better now much more fluid and smooth than malwaredroid.

That's maybe a billion Androids, a billion iOS/Symbian/BB/Bada etc, and five billion people looking for normal phones.

looks good, with proper sdcard slot now.
can't imagine a "camera phone" without sdcard slot :)
I'll wait further info/review on this phone.

What innovation does it have, when i just increase the size, but dump the same storage and add more transistors?

wmpoweruser scaled a leaked photo of the 6" 1520 as 165.5×85 mm.
By comparison the 5.7" Note 3 is 151×79 mm.
The 6.4" Z ultra is 179×92 mm
For me I would prefer the Note 3 but everyone has different uses.
Nowadays phones have NO innovation.
All giant monstrosities whereby there is no challenge in fitting any mobile hardware inside, without thinking of size limitation nor weight.

6" is too big... 5.5 would have been a perfect size... considering the weight of lumia phones which are really bulky expect this to be somewhere around 275-300gms...
