I love the smaller phones. My hands aren’t that big.
Dislikes:
Button gone on the bottom is gone. Everything is swiping.
No biometrics fingerprint. There is face recognition but not all apps. Not all apps have face recognition.

Go for either opera or Edge, I've even replaced original iPhone keyboard with SwiftKey and the difference is just amazing. I'm gonna do the same with 13 mini.

kartoonz, 21 Oct 2021then why is no manufacturer making compact phone?Many reasons.
1. People got used to bigger phones Very less likely to move back to compact phones
2. Very few options available
3. Battery life is a concern
4. Only apple has real compact phones rest all have smallest of bigger sized phones
5. Only few might switch to smaller phones from bigger phones
6. Only those who are currently using compact phones consider upgrading to latest compact phones, and to do so there is no worthy upgrades.
7. Companies have to redesign phones just to sell very less units.
Companies don’t want to waste time & money.

At 12watts that's almost as close with ARM mighty A15 SoCs.

Great phone for elderly people!

Everyone who has been using Sony Compacts for the last few years should consider this 13mini. Sure changing from Android to iOS is a drag, but there are some neat features too. Overall its the most logical 'phone to own if you understand that size really matters. Bye Sony its been swell.

KC, 19 Oct 2021Flagship compact phone simply cost more to design, especia... moreOK, but efficiency of the processor isn't a bad thing, they claimed that they made the pros of iPhone 13s run quicker, but i don't think you will have issues with it! It runs as quick and as for the battery life, it lasts all day for watching movies,, but the pro max has some good benefits to consider!

especially snapdragon or its equivalent generates so much heat,
so every maker tries to convenience everyone bigger is better.

For the maker,
Bigger phone means less R&D cost:
1. No need to consider how to squeeze more component into the body
2. Bigger battery to compensate the bad efficiency of the processor
3. Easier cooling solution
also, they are now selling: Bigger = Better = Better Value,
while actually Bigger = Easier = More profits

I wish many people buy the mini series just so we get small-er Android phones. SO many people are fed up by the market of 6,4-7" screen phones right now. Even the last compact phone, the pixel line, now got large for no good reason.
To all chinese manufacturers: If you offer a 6,4" flagship-phone, why often make the "lite" version even larger with 6,7"?
Im running a 6,7" phone myself though, just if you were wondering. I just wish there were phones for friends and family. They will switch to apple...
