Small phones

They say that size is important, and we couldn’t agree more, especially when it comes to small phones! Sure, mobile phones with big screens are great if that’s what you’re into, but sometimes it pays to have something a little more compact. Something light, that slips into your pocket with ease, and only needs one hand to get everything done. All hail the small phone!

We’ve got a terrific range of small mobile phones and compact phones to suit every need and want, so if you’re after a Samsung small phone or a small smartphone from Nokia, Alcatel or Apple, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve also got great small phones for older family members, such as those from Doro, which make communication simple. Whichever brand you go with, small screen phones are a great choice if you’re not heavily into gaming or watching films on the go, and if you want to primarily use your phone as, well, a phone. Have a look through our range of slim and small mobile phones, and find the best small phone or the best compact phone for you today.

Small Samsung phones

What’s the best Samsung phone with a small screen? That’s a very good question, but if you’re looking for a great Samsung small phone that really does the business, you can’t go wrong with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 5G. For a small phone, this exciting and stylish model from Samsung has so much going for it, not least the fact that it can fold away neatly into your pocket or bag, before folding back out again to deliver a big phone experience. And while the main screen of this Samsung small phone measures a handy 6.7 inches with a terrifically vivid FHD+ display, the folded version features a super-convenient 1.9 inch Super AMOLED cover screen enabling you to send quick text replies at a glance.

And what this small Samsung phone lacks in size, it more than makes up for with power, with 5G capabilities for super-fast surfing, a 12MP double camera for gorgeous photos, and a long-lasting 3,700 mAh battery. Foldable phone technology is better and stronger than it’s ever been, and the Flip family of small Samsung phones are among some of the best small phones on the market today.

Small Android phones

If a small Android phone is what you’re after, then we have some great options for you. There are some excellent small screen Android phones on the market, such as the Alcatel 1B 2022. With a 5.5 inch display screen, it’s still big enough for those who want a clear view, while being one of the best compact Android phones for those who want a lighter handset. It’s 4G ready meaning it guarantees excellent coverage wherever you happen to be, and the 3000mAh battery means you’ll always have a good amount of juice to last you between charges.

But is that our best small Android phone? It’s certainly our smallest Android smartphone, but there are other contenders for our best, and we have some great deals on other small Android phones from Google, Honor and Samsung.

Small phone FAQs

Is 5.4 inches small for a phone?

It’s smaller than the average, yes, but with today’s small phones, you don’t lose anything in terms of quality or connectivity. What you do get is a high-quality small smartphone with all the features and functionality of its bigger cousins, but at a lighter weight while taking up less space in your pocket or bag. Plus, with a compact cell phone, it’s more likely that you’ll be able to do everything you need with just one hand, rather than two.

Are small phones coming back?

They never went away! However, today’s small screen phones are a lot lighter than those of a few years ago, and a good deal more powerful too, with bags of added functionality and connectivity. We’ve got a huge range of small screen mobile phones for you to choose from, including everything from small Samsung phones to small iPhones, such as the iPhone SE.

Are there any small Android phones?

If you’re looking for an Android phone with a small screen size, we have some great options in stock. As already mentioned, the Alcatel 1B 2022 is a compact phone that represents great value for money, and comes armed with an 8MP main camera and a 5MP selfie camera. The Google Pixel 6a is a little larger with a 6.1 inch display, but still enables you to enjoy a whole heap of big-phone quality in a small smartphone body. With a 12MP dual camera and 8MP selfie camera, it’s great for photography while it’s still a little sleeker than slightly bigger Samsung Galaxy and iPhone options with similar specs.

What are the best small phones?

It all depends on what you want it for. If you’re looking for a small smartphone for the elderly, then the Doro 8100 is a great choice. With a 6.1 inch HD+ display, it’s not the biggest screen available but it is super simple to use and visually it’s clear, plus, the sound is louder and the buttons are larger. There’s also an assistance button should you need to call for help.

However, if you’re looking for a small phone version of one of the leading smartphone models out there, then we have small Android phones, small Samsung phones and small iPhones which come packed with all the great functionality and features you know and love, but at a more pocket-friendly size and price point.
