Best comment ever!
Maybe we should do a poll if we want to raise money so the administration could finally afford a pair of glasses and a ruler :))

What I consider compact is the ability to use the phone with one hand. I could use even samsung note series with one hand, but it doesn't mean it would be comfortable. XZ1 compact is the only truly compact phone of all these, next comes iPhone SE which is even smaller. One hand operation is determined by width, and is very good on almost any phone with up to 65-66 mm

Sorry guys but this was supposed to be about "compact" flagships... However, there are phones like S8, G6, etc which are definitely not considered to be "compact" phones.

Am shock how on earth a almost 6in phone becomes a compact an gsmarea has the heart to announce this well well

Look the s8 is much better because first, the s8 has infinity display like all phones do ,second,the s8 has iris scanner ,fingerprint , and facial recognition , ip68 water resistant.
I understand that all of you like different companies but the fair is fair

yeah i guess thats about right i would say the s8 is up there as one of the compack phones as it is not that large and it packs 5.8 screen cant say that about any other phone

using gsmarena's phone finder i searched for maximum height of 130mm and year 2017. result is: sony xz1 compact, nokia 3310 (that's a feature phone).... i don't see any samsung models. so unless "compact" means something totally different im not sure why you guys choose s8. i actually sold my s8 because it was too long for me and the balance in hands is a bit "off" and bought a sony compact

S8 is the best phone if 2017 and some fanboys like you got mad cause your favorite phone is not favorite between 18+ years people.

L in gsmarena stands for logic

XZ1 compact is 20cm less tall than the S8, why Gsmarena doesn't category XZ1 compact into the MINI group but steal the XZ1 compact crowns for S8?! That's not funny, Gsmarena!

The s8 is not 5" anymore.. its no compact

Daany, 24 Dec 2017Speaking of compact, is the XZ1 compact not the most compac... moreThe xz1 compat is the only compact. Thats why they decided to name them all compact, so tht they could make a poll with more than one phone. Then they feel smart and progressive about it. Lol.
