Remember the time when 5-inch smartphones were called spades? Then the optimal screen size was considered 3-3.5 inches. As practice shows, today there are not so few users who like small screens. Therefore, this review is especially for them. Just say that the choice of small smartphones is small, apparently due to not very high demand.
Although created on the basis of Android, the smartphone is a button. But it is push-button because it is a protected smartphone designed to work in the most difficult conditions. Therefore, it is difficult to break it, but it’s more convenient to press the buttons if you work with gloves on. The diagonal of the screen is only 2.63 inches, and the resolution is 432 × 320 pixels. There is a 5 MP camera, a powerful battery – at 4800 mAh. The cost is high.
LEXAND Mini (LPH7) Smarty
If we talk about simple devices that are not designed to conquer harsh conditions, we can talk about the LEXAND Mini (LPH7) Smarty.
This is one of the most compact solutions on the market – the screen diagonal is only 2.45 inches with a resolution of 432 × 240. The internal memory is only 4 GB, but there is a slot for a memory card. 4G, of course, is missing, but there is 3G support, which is also good. The camera is only 2 MP. The operating system is Android. Of the obvious advantages – a nice price tag.
Posh Micro X S240
It is argued that this is almost the smallest Android-based smartphone on the market, its screen diagonal is 2.4 inches, and the mass is only 52 g. It’s not in vain that it is compared to a standard credit card on renders. Interesting features include 4G HSDPA support+.
Alas, the model is not yet presented in our market.
The model was introduced a few years ago, but it is on the market and is in steady demand – obviously because of the low cost. In addition, the Torex Mini is a rugged Android smartphone with a shockproof casing. Screen diagonal – 2.5 inches.
Of the unusual solutions – a 900 mAh battery, which is clearly not enough even for such a smartphone. Although the manufacturer claims that the Torex Mini can last up to 4 hours of talk time and up to 10 days of standby. Believe the word.
