The A 2017 Samsung series are also decent, the A3 being the smallest. Awesome build quality and ergonomics, though it's stuck on Android 10 for a couple of years now. Also the Galaxy A40 is decently sized (somewhere in the S5 range), though it's a modern Samsung with a notched display so not that good

    I really love my s5, currently running lineageos 18.1 full root so it is still useable, however the battery life isnt much so i cannot daily drive it.
    Which phone would you recommend for me?
    I want a small form factor, good battery life, 3.5mm and a micro sd slot. Thats basically all I care about :)

            best samsung phone ever, it had a remote control app where you can turn off any tv you like. I used to turn off tvs at sports bars with the app where people watch matches, it was hilarious

                      I still use a Galaxy S5 and have since it was released - I have unlimited data, VoLTE, and use it as a mobile hotspot while away from home to stream movies and game online on my laptop. The S5 is a very capable device.

                          Anonymous, 31 Dec 2022Via the calling codes. It may not be really related.Ok, I got it.
                          There are some Android/phone related codes which appear automatically, like *#06# which should show you IMEI IDs of the phone's 2 SIM slots.
                          But, the network operator codes need to be dialed (you enter the code and press the connect call button)

                          And they've both been working ok in my older Nokia phones, 8 year old Android based Redmi 2 Prime and my recent LG phone. So, it doesn't seem to be phone's issue.
                          So, try confirming this with your network operator's retail outlet, maybe the codes have changed.
