5 small phones you can get for cheap on CompAsia - CompAsia

When it comes to smartphones, bigger is not always better. Even though options for smaller phones may be limited, the ones in the market can outdo many of the devices that are larger in size. If you prefer a device that is pocketable and can be easily managed with one hand, here are some top picks for you.

iPhone 13 Mini - Small superiority 

The iPhone 13 Mini is the latest Mini offering from Apple. Though it may be about 2 years old by now, it holds decent flagship specs and is able to perform most tasks without a hitch. The iPhone 13 mini houses the Apple A15 Bionic chip, which you will find in the latest iPhone 14. Aside from that, it has a brilliant OLED display, a highly competent camera and superb durability. 

GalaxyZ Flip4 - Half the pocket space 

At only 3.34 x 2.83 inches while it’s folded, the ZFlip 4 offers a flagship experience while taking only half of your pocket space. Powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, you can expect all your apps to run smoothly. Having a foldable also allows you to prop up your device for better looking selfies using the main camera.

S22 - Mini Android, massive power

The S22 isn’t exactly marketed as a compact phone, but it is under 6 inches and highly operable with one hand, making it an awesome Android alternative to the iPhone 13 Mini. With a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, Samsung’s iconic triple cameras, and the enhanced Samsung Dex experience, it drips in flagship superiority but at a pocketable size.

iPhone SE - Retro looks, respectable specs

Sometimes it’s difficult to let go of old habits. With the newer iPhones eliminating the home button, many were uncomfortable with having to navigate with screen-only interactions. Thankfully you can get the iPhone SE which is pretty much an iPhone 12 in an iPhone 8’s body. At only 5.45 by 2.65 inches, it has all the old school features you need, only faster. With the A15 Bionic chip, and a bigger battery, it is the upgrade that is same-same but different in a good way.

S10e - Adorable meets affordable

The Samsung Galaxy S10e is truly the last of the official compact flagships released by Samsung. Despite its age, it is still a very solid device and has some very lovable old school features such as an expandable microSDXC slot and earphone jack. And from $219 onwards, you can get this petite powerhouse.
