yes. 5.5" would be perfect!... except I also want it also to fold in half...
I have a Japanese version Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact using in the US... at 5.3" I am constantly fat fingering the text, which I almost never did with a 5.75" (Honor 8).
(Regarding the Japanese version working in the US... it is doing pretty good, but I will to try to flash it to a US version ROM due to limitations/issues - group MMS is disabled, has trouble connecting to a new 4G network when traveling (using Mint).. sometimes reconnects when I reset the phone in a new city).

........What are you waiting for Sony ????
I'm waiting for YOU!!!!


I would like a compact phone the size of Z5compact with a metal frame (iphone 12)and a back lid that would not come off.A phone with a decent processor(5G)&refresh rate up to 120 Hz,same arrangement of the buttons on the right hand side,3.5 jack for music and calls(90 degree handsfree jack).New cameras(housing and layout of samsung s21) and last but not least a radio(FM).
FM radio is very important for me and many other cellphone users.
I am a SONY fanatic and I want something of high quality like iphone 12 &Samsung S21.Suggested price 500-700 Euros.

  • Jango

Please be true! I've always gone with Compact models, I hope for a big leap from XZ1 Compact!

I hope they make this. I will buy two if they do make this. although, I am sure qualcom will rename the 775 chipset to something such as 875 or 878.

Yes, nowadays people are bored with Notch and big screen phones. We need someone to make compact as 5 to 5.5 inches phones now without Notch / Hole etc. 100% Display onto 5 to 5.5 inches only. Of course with SD835, 16mp camera at least and 4500mAh battery, at least 2.3ghz clock speed, under 10nm again, Gorilla glass 6, slim design is not necessary, and many more factors to say

If Xperia 5 II was a 2cm smaller I would buy it, it would be great phone, that's what we want!
135x65x9 & 140x70x9 are the best options in my opinion. no more then 19:9 ratio.

Until now my family is stuck on ZL, Z5 Compact, XZ1 Compact phones...
Z5's camera takes really good low light photos as well and snapdragon 810 still rocking.

Anonymous, 23 Nov 2020Your connectivity buttons are all there, dude.To add to that. People using social media, all version of "stories" are up there. You can press search button on twitter at the bottom but can't type until you tap the bar, on the top. Settings on Line app, whatsapp. There are no 3 dots (settings) to tap at the bottom of your screen. It's all on the top
