The problem is in my opinion, the aspect ratio, now phones have displays too streched.
5,5 inch display with aspect ratio 16:9 are just right (iphone 8 plus)
6 inch display with aspect ratio 18:9 are just right (LG V35)
I feel streched and "bigger" screens as less usable display.
xiaomi vivo oppo, please create a phone with screen size below 6 inc !! 🙏
dxyuyu, 21 Jan 2023I'm waiting for a sub 5.5" galaxy Ultra Well... hate to break it to you... but keep waiting. It won't happen.
I have currently a phone with a 6.5 inch display. My next will be at least 6.7 inch with minimal bezels.

Anything from 6.4 to 6.7 generally works for me.
I have been using pixel 4a and it feels really handy. For me its perfect size and will mostly to upgade if same formfactor comes out in the market.
I am waiting a big phone like mate 20x, 7.3" 19:9, qhd, quick charge...

iPhone 3 was 1,1CM thick. That is 110mm. And because of it's small size, it was a pleasure to hold in hands
For me the optimal size for the screen is about 5"

Anonymous, 17 Jan 2023The iPhone 13 mini, made me switch to Apple.
Nothing beats the 5.4 incher.says nobody, ever haha
The xperias are too narrow. For me 6.6 inch up to 7 inch with 20:9 ratio is ideal. Current phone xiaomi 12tpro
NoBot, 17 Jan 2023I am sceptical about those numbers. It would be very interesting to compare them with last yea... moreAgain, iPhone Mini is a premium $700+ device, so it doesn't represent all the demographic, far from it. Now iPhone SE 2020, 2022 which is much cheaper sells a lot better
Compact phones are really needed. Specially in the budget segment. In public transport and road, and in any busy functions or any other place where there is a crowd and busyness everywhere, compact phones are the thing that comes handy.
I am sceptical about those numbers. It would be very interesting to compare them with last years sales for popular productlines which features all sizes, such as iPhone and Galaxy S. The iPhone Mini fate apparently demonstrated that users might vote differently from what they actually buy?
So, close to 50% of people voted for not bigger than 6.1 inch screen. And almost no good compact phone on market... iPhone 13 mini is not for everyone due to some terrible iOS solutions, Zenfone 9 is not available in many countries not to mention it's quite ugly and obsolete due to big bezels around screen. Anyway, both of them are still better than nothing. Galaxy S22 is quite compact device too, but nevertheless it has almost the same size as regular non-min iPhone
It depends. My wife likes the iphone mini. She has small hands, she is small and doesn't have big pockets or carry a large bag. I have the S22 Ultra and for me, that is relatively the same size as the iPhone mini to my wife. I have a hand span of 29cm vs my wife which is only 12.5cm. I am 1m98cm tall (6ft 6) vs 1m58 (5ft 1).
So manufactures should make small powerful devices as per the larger ones. I understand battery impact but they can make them slightly thicker in depth to compensate, I don't think that has as much impact as the width and length. If they just made, mini, medium, and large I think that works.
