Are there any good phones under 6''?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Was looking to buy an Oneplus 7/7t/7pro/7tpro and I just held a 7 pro and all I could think of was how tf can you daily something this big. Dont get me wrong, the phone is damn great, but I'm afraid to sit down with it in my pocket.

 

So thats why I'm looking to see if there are any options under 6'' (it can also be slightly above 6'').

 

I was looking at the pixel 3a, heard it has good camera too, but also heard its a ripoff considering the specs and the money tou paying for it.

 

I would apreciate any suggestions, no IOS tho, I'm not a big fan.

Most compact of them all: Samsung galaxy s10e, seems to be what you're looking for. 5,8" screen, has great specs and can be found for a good price.

 

The problem with the pixel 3a, even though it has a 5,6" screen, are the bezels that still make the phone big.

This really looked promising, too bad I can only find it with 6 gb of ram :|

 

I do need the phone to have good batery life and specs great enough to last me 4-5 years.

The 7 Pro is exceptionally big. This is not a normal sized phone

You can. Side pocket, not back pocket.

What are you currently using and whats wrong with it?

 

The S20 has a 6.2" screen and 4,000mAh battery. 8GB of RAM and 128 internal storage that can be further expanded.

For perspective the Oneplus 7/7T Pro has a 6.67" screen and the same battery size.

 

There is only so much you can ask for before resorting to aggressive power saving settings in software (Huawei's habit) or some voodoo magic to defy physics

You want a phone with < 6" screen, but don't mind the bezels? LOL

In that case, you can get Pixel 3a which is 5,6". BUT if you mind the bezels, get a Samsung S20 which is 6,2" but still smaller than Pixel.

Yup he spelled it out

 

The Pixel 3a is 151.3mm tall, 70.1mm wide, and 8.2 mm thick, for having a 5.6" screen

The S20 is 151.7mm tall, 69.1mm wide, and 7.9 mm thick, for having a 6.2" screen

 

My tablet also has a screen much larger than that of an office printer, but for some reason the printer is a lot harder to carry around

I own the Pixel 3a and it's been a stellar phone. As a light to moderate user, I can easily get a full days worth out of it and even though there is zero ingress protection rating, it's been fairly durable as well. I've dropped it in the shower, on the ground and off my desk at work. Granted I use a case and port condoms but still, it's been a trooper. If you want more specifics I can give them, but overall depending on your use it can be a nice deal imo.

The only make that does sub 6" and doesn't have Bezels making it the same size as a 6"+ phone is apple soooo pick your poison.

Oh yes I forgot to mention that while you have a 'problem' with the S10e having only 6GB of RAM, the Pixel 3a only has a 4GB model that is stuck with 64GB of storage.

 

The lowest model of the S10e comes with 128GB internal and can be further expanded.

 

Keep in mind the additional cost of data uploads and downloads when not on WiFi, if you are thinking about resorting to cloud storage. if you lose internet access while outside for some reason, well good luck to you. And even while on WiFi, access to cloud storage is much slower and transfers will take much more battery to get done.

 

This is in addition to its comparatively miserable battery life and whatever I said about it in an earlier post.
