  • IMO 4" smart phones are the max size....I'm more than happy to see a junior or mini as they currently call these, in the shops. Phones are too large, long and wide now notwithstanding that someone out there thinks these are cool? For me, something that slots into the back pocket or jacke pocket,is sufficient. Ideal size is between 3.5 - 4.0 ins...screen format. Yes, thin phones are welcome. Oh, need longer battery life too4 days min.......thank you market.....and come on sony, get these rolling out asap.

  • I agree, it's small. Definitely for someone who isn't a heavy user on their smartphone. Hard to believe that we're considering 4" screens to be small though, but that's the way the market has been pushed. Plus, I don't have tiny fingers. :P

  • That's not bad for a No Contract Android Smart Phone, however even a 4" screen is considered small (now it has to be a 4.3 - 4.5 even for the No Contract Market). The overall specs are impressive ....
