Over the last few years, there’s been an ongoing trend of smartphones getting bigger and bigger. Display sizes increase, bezels keep shrinking, and handsets continue to eat up more space in our pockets.
Large phones are great for playing games and watching movies, but when it comes to easily using them with one hand, it’s a different story entirely.

I too would recommehd the S10e – I was going to recommend the Google Pixel 2 for its small screen size (5″), but it is pre-2019/2020, specifically, 2017.
This conversation got us to wondering — Do you wish there were more compact Android phones?
