Unless you need a bigger screen for watching content, small phones can be really helpful. They’re lighter, more portable and can fit even in smaller hands.
If you want a teeny tiny phone though, you might have to give up some extra functionality. Nokia’s known for its minute sized phones- the smallest mobile phone Nokia has is the Nokia 105 V5. It’s great if you just want to call, text or play the odd game of snake.
But if it’s the smallest Android smartphone you’re after, we have plenty pocket rockets from brands like Google, Honor and Samsung. That includes our smallest 4G smartphone, the Alcatel 1.
Don’t forget about Apple though! The smallest iPhone is the iPhone SE- powerful and compact.
We have loads of compact smartphones and it’s easy to compare sizes on our website or by asking instore. Just filter the models by screen size and this should help.
And they don’t have to be expensive either, a cheap compact phone – like a Pixel or Samsung Galaxy – is easy to come by. Check out the website to find our best budget compact smartphone.
Phone screen size is measured diagonally from one corner to the other, usually in inches.
It’ll be no surprise to learn that the average phone screen size is getting bigger and bigger. But we still have plenty of small screen phones to choose from!
