Sick and tired of all these huge phones, no real choice
My wife is stuck with a modded Motorola Photon Q (with Android 6 CM installed) because it's STILL (5 years later, no exaggeration) the best landscaper slider available.
I have a pair of phones with 5.2" screens, but only because I really couldn't find anything smaller that caught my eye (after owning a Sony Z3 Compact that had problems, I didn't much feel like buying a Sony again just yet, which is a shame, because they're the only ones taking that segment seriously!).
If you want choice in the market today, you're screwed. If you want an enormous slab with the same features as other enormous slabs, you're well catered for. I can't believe leaving out a sodding 3.5mm headphone jack is something the market has decided is OK. Pathetic.
