Manufacturer's customers are primarily carriers, and carriers prefer larger phones which display better, and can be priced higher, thus making service contracts more enticing.

MrGrumpy, 09 Sep 2019Pathetic IFA with nothing even remotely interesting. Xperia 5... morethat is why the mobile industry will never get anywhere at the rate they are going, running out of fresh new things...

how are they even going to come up with new stuff that is truly enthralling and captivating such that consumers would still look to their lead...

it is so stupid, ever since 2015s nothing new comes that is even cool anymore... all they ever do is candybar factor phones, can they even make phones that can be used as a secret taser or electrifying gadget?! now that will be seriously cool stuff!

On which planet is a 6.1 "screen considered compact? To be called compact it had to be at least 5.7".

ROG2 is definitely best flagship of 2019 for its price.
No other phone can keep up no matter how much they will try.

"However, the company faces a problem - it can't license Android for the new Mates". Elsewhere on the web says Huawei can use Android as it is opensource but will be blocked from using Google services like mail, maps, youtube. Confusing. Wonder if Huawei can be setup to masquerade as something else like no brand.

Pathetic IFA with nothing even remotely interesting.

Xperia 5 a compact? Don't make me laugh?
Phones with more cameras? They already have plenty.
High res high refresh displays? Utterly pointless on a mobile device.

Nokia flip was the most innovative and that's based on a 15 year old phone. Says it all really.

IFA 2019 is the most boring event of all time. Noting special or exciting nah da, adios 2019, looking forward to 2020 Barcelona.

Huawei is using old ARM, Pixel and iPhone have their "not nice" camera on the back side, this year all looks like a freak show.

Overcrowded smartphones. I prefer the new Nokia's flip phone.
