The list is missing com[act phone options like Rakuten Hand.
Also, please also tell us is there any compact phone that still use LCD screens since many compact phone buyers also favor LCD screen, instead of just listing OLED as pro.

I find current phone industry completely going nuts ... There is no phone under 140x65 mm form factor with normal battery. Hey ... four years ago these were capable of doing that with 2700 mA battery keeping above 70h. Now with all the progress these ... .... ..... are incapable of doing such phone?!!!??!! Sorry for Iphone mini for one million dollars. Sorry but I am NOT going to buy a phone these days. I am NOT giving money for what I do NOT WANT. Full stop. Do your JOB market analysers. As I am not the only one and you will NOT be payed anymore. How much I would like to scream this in the face of all these!!!!
This compilation confirms that there are no compact phones anymore.
Almost the whole list of Android devices is above 6 inches (that's gib), except for the Samsung s10e that is 5.8', acceptable but still big.
Well am quite impressed without post. It outstanding and has give me insight on the best phones in the market. Thanks a lot.
A pathetic device like iPhone SE 2020 occupies second place in this list, while many other models could compete here. Also where is the Pixel 4a, the phone that smashes everything in its way among its price range?
Does anyone know about a compact affordable smartphone coming up in the next few months?
So gsmareana, is there a compact affordable android on the hirizon?
Compact phones is not just a matter of external size, but also a screen size. Point is that you can reach all parts of screen with thumb, with one hand while you are holding in it.
Anything above 5 inch does not fit in this category unless you have really huge fingers or you can perform controlled thumb sprain.
By this criteria, seems that only Apple have product in this category, which is shame for others.
I once bought an iPhone 8 thinking it would replace my classic iPhone SE, but had to return it because I couldn’t operate it with one hand.
The new SE is NOT compact... it’s exactly the same dimensions and weight as the unusable iPhone 8 I returned.
I simply DO NOT CARE about big screens or better cameras or any of the other BS that has been developed since the old SE.
I will probably have to abandon Apple when this old SE eventually breaks or dies.
It’s shocking to me that no phone maker is addressing the market for one-hand operable phones.
Wow, I think only S10e is a good buy here in terms of performance and size. All the others are ugly or are not compact at all! Sony should definitely resurrect their compact phones these times with little to no bezel phones. funny how 6 inch phones are called compact now when they were considered as phablets during the days. 5 inch phones should comeback!!!
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2020Yeah... Would there be real best compact phone list... These are medium size phones not compac... moreso wisely spoken workds. Not one phone on this list is compact. The smallest one is 145 mm. The last true compacts smartphone is exactly what you said, the Sony Xperia XZ1 compact. They should aim to make more phones that are around 128x64x8 mm. That would be perfect.
