You could sell an 85mm wide phone with huge bezels and a tiny 3" screen and most people on GSM Arena would say "oh such a compact phone!"... unbelievable

This phone is 71mm wide, it is not a compact phone, regardless of the screen size.

I'm sorry but a phone measuring 147 x 71 mm is NOT a compact. It is simply *slightly* downsized. A true compact is something like what we saw in Sony's Xperia Compact series, something that is at most 130 mm tall and is easily usable with one hand.

sreeder1983, 06 Dec 2021This phone is trash! Mt S20 FE blows it out the water A $700 phone is better than a ≈$200 phone? What a revelation!

Kudos to Sharp. I have been using the Z2 and little problems only found. I have to change the battery if it goes weak. Everything is ok for the phone. Well, I don't think this Sharp Aquos Wish is that bad like other brands. It is up to the user to carefully manipulate around with the phone.

This looks like a worthy competitor to the Sony Xperia Ace 2 launched six months ago. Shame that neither phones are available globally.

It's sad that compact phones have become whatever this is.

I feel like I would not like this phone, but I do. Design looks very cute.

That bezel on the bottom tho! Cant they keep same bezel size like on the top to the bottom?

Technically all new Sony Xperias are easy to hold (less width) than this.
