Are there any good small android smartphones? I've been using LG G2 Mini for almost two years now, and it has always seemed too big for me (neither am I happy with its performance).

To be honest, what I'm looking for is a phone that:

  1. is small (given the current trend, the smaller the better)

  2. has Android

  3. works well with Pokemon Go (good performance and battery). :D

I've used a little bit of iPhone 5s and it's just what I want, but Apple OS slightly plays on my nerves. Is there any Android phone that can compete with it over size, performance and battery?

A decent size of internal memory is also welcomed. My old LG G2 Mini got completely stuck even though I moved literally everything I could to the SD card.

  • How big is too big? 5.5 inches seems the common size now. – Journeyman Geek Aug 23 '16 at 7:53
  • Yup, and this fact is driving me mad. I don't know why people are so fond of bricks, especially when most of them also have a tablet. I prefer my cellphone to be handy. – Arsen Aug 23 '16 at 8:09

So, this isn't the smallest 4" phone, but I was amazed to find a phone like this, so I'm going to put it out here because I wasn't aware these kinds of phones existed - I recommend the Sonim XP7. This phone is kind of a monster. It's a little short on the internal memory at 16gb with no way to add more, so that is a concern, but... this thing has a 40h talk time. That's crazy. It's also very well reviewed for its GPS performance. The CPU and RAM match or beat the 5s. But yeah, it is a little bigger, and yeah, it doesn't really match up in terms of storage capacity. Still, you can find it on the used market for pretty darn cheap. Here's a comparison across all the considered devices.

  • @BigElittles If you look at Adam's profile, all is explained there. – ArtOfCode Oct 21 '16 at 19:10
