    Isn't there any good phone that comes at the same size as the iphone 4?

    Blackberry one is superficially very good but OS is terrible

    The only high end phones the size of iphones anymore are other iPhones. The most powerful small Android phone is the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact with a 4.3" screen, and is indeed pretty high end with specs in line with last year's flagships. Aside from that there's very little else to choose from.

    Ignore Blackberries.

    Samsung Galaxy S3 mini is pretty much the same size as the iPhone 4 (maybe slightly bigger but not by much). Good phone as well.

    Moto X is a similar size to the iPhone 4 and the screen is larger by 0.7". Supposedly a lot more comfortable as well



    The X is also a lot better

    But that's an iPhone 5 in the picture.

    For what it's worth, if you're interested in Blackberries you could check out the Blackberry Z30 or Z10 that looks pretty much like the iPhone (in terms of dimensions) but has much better specs (z30). They run the new Blackberry 10 OS which is a pretty sweet OS imo. Very underrated. I've seen them available in Carphone Warehouse.

    Anyway, I'm already too tired of typing... You can check it out if you want it.

    Sorry, no idea. You might be best going into a store and asking them which phones are made for girly hands. Try them out, take a note and post here, and people can tell you which is best.

    you're right.

    there's not much of a difference between the 4 and the 5 is there, though?

    Thanks for the reply

    Surely I should opt for Xperia z2 since it's the superior version?

    Also have you heard abt the black phone?

    You were asking about small phones, and there is no Z2 Mini. If you're looking at larger phones now there's tons of other options to consider.

    Also have you heard abt the black phone?
    Pedestrian specs with data encryption 90% of people won't really need. Don't really think it's worth considering personally.
