Have you heard the phrase that says ‘the best thing comes in small jar’? Although currently the phones with the big screen are out of fashion, as the Pixel 3 XL, the Galaxy Note 9 or the iPhone Xs Max, because they allow you to have a more complete view of the images, the truth is that in many cases their smaller versions are more aesthetic, durable and easy to take with one hand. For this reason, we have prepared a guide with the best phones small market.
One of them could be the right one for your needs, tastes and pocket.
Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact
Sony is one of the few big names in the business regularly updates its range of smartphones small. The Xperia XZ2 Compact, the latest addition to the range Compact Xperia, and is the most powerful of Sony until the moment, in addition to an excellent choice of smartphone small that it holds easily in one hand.
Sony finally has moved away from the ancient philosophy of design Omnibalance and has taken “Ambient Flow”, a new design based on the water. It may seem a little old-fashioned when compared with the competition, but it is ergonomic and comfortable to hold. The Compact is not much bigger than the iPhone, but still may contain a 5-inch screen (a ratio of 18:9) in Full HD, with waterproofing IP65/IP68. There is a connector for headphones (there is an adapter from 3.5 mm to USB-C on the box), but comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back, which ends a turn with the Xperias without support for fingerprints in the U.S.
It is equally impressive in its interior, as the latest Snapdragon 845 comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. In truth, you will not have any problem with the performance on this phone.
Your camera is just as impressive as in the past Xperia phones. The XZ2 Compact has a camera f/2.0 19-megapixel camera that offers very good photos, even in low light. However, the most prominent feature here is its video camera super slow motion, capable of capturing up to 960 fps with an HD quality of 1080p. It is difficult to capture the moment, but when you do it, it looks amazing.
You can buy the Xperia XZ2 Compact for $650 dollars, and is already available at Best Buy, Amazon, Focus, and BuyDig.
Google Pixel 2
The small Pixel 2 of 5 inches, has an AMOLED screen of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which projects a vibrant image, it works with Snapdragon 835, and possibly has the best camera smartphone on the planet.
But not everything is perfect. Unfortunately this device does not have MicroSD card slots, or the port conventional hearing aids and their design can often be a bit outdated due to its large bezels.
However, the Pixel 2 has a feature that makes it shine and it is your camera, as Google added to this device, a lens 12 megapixel camera with an aperture of f / 1.8 that allows you to capture amazing photos.
If you want to acquire one of these phones, you must invest at least $649 dollars for 64 GB of internal storage or $749 dollars to upgrade the internal storage to 128 GB.
Despite its size, definitely Apple has used magic to put the qualities of the iPhone 6S in the small shell of IT, and it works wonderfully. Also, the design reminds us physically to the iPhone 5S.
However, not everything is perfect. Although the camera on the back is 12 megapixels, the front camera is a bit disappointing, since it has only 1.2 megapixels. In addition, this device is absent in the 3D Touch and the total duration of the battery many times do not endure for the whole day.
In case outside little, as is usual in devices of Apple, the storage is limited, with options of 32 GB and 128 GB available.
Currently the iPhone also runs the latest version of iOS, with regular updates and fast that continue to be the strength of Apple over the masses of Android, and since it is Apple, it is likely that the WILL continue to be supported for a few more years.
The iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus may be the most popular smartphones of Apple, but the humble iPhone 8 must not be forgotten. While it is not as small as the iPhone, the iPhone 8 only has a 4.7-inch screen, tiny in comparison with the rest of the phones on the market.
Its LCD display has the technology, True Tone Apple in its interior, which adjusts the color according to the lighting of the room in which you find yourself. In addition, it has a resolution of 1,334 x 750 pixels. The iPhone 8 is powered by the powerful processor A11 Bionic Apple, which means that it can go on par with almost any other smart phone “badge”. Comes with wireless charging, rating and IP67 water resistance.
Your 12-megapixel camera and single-lens is not as exciting as the double camera of the iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X, but the iPhone 8 does not disappoint. You’ll be more than happy with the photos that this phone can capture, and your camera selfie is pretty good. The most important thing is that this phone can run the latest version of iOS 12 without any problem, and it is very likely that you are kept up to date for a few more years, so you won’t lose your money if what you buy today.
Speaking of this: the iPhone 8 will cost $700 dollars, although it is likely that you’ll get a little less, according to go from the weeks.
Samsung Galaxy S9
Although it is not a phone, really small, we found it necessary to put it in this list because of its enormous qualities in a body relatively slender.
The S9 has a large display of 5.8-inch with bevels thin at the top and bottom of the screen. Its screen is AMOLED, which lets you project vibrant colors and a measurement super sharp 570 pixels-per-inch.
In addition, it is powered with the new Snapdragon 845 Qualcomm, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage and a space for a MicroSD card, which means that you should not run out of space. Best of all is that it comes with the port, 3.5 mm headphone jack.
If this were not enough, the Galaxy S9 has one of the best cameras in the world, as it is able to work with an aperture in very good light to deliver excellent pictures with low light.
