At a time when the screen sizes of most smartphones are getting bigger, smartphones are no longer a compact device. However, if you prefer smaller smartphones, do keep in mind that manufacturers come up with models that have screen sizes smaller than 6-inches every now and then. Thanks to the smaller screen size, the size of the battery decreases too, thus making the smartphone light as well. If you are someone who prefers compact smartphones over huge ones, here are four such smartphones that are available on Amazon. Note that these devices have been selected based on the features on offer.

Google Pixel 3a

Google Pixel 3a, with a screen size of 5.6-inch, is one of the most compact smartphones in the market. The compact size of the device helps you hold it in one hand and operate it with ease. As a direct result of the small size, it has a relatively smaller battery capacity of 3000mAh when compared to other smartphones. However, under optimal use, it should last for a day according to company claims. The phone’s screen has an FHD+ display that should give you good viewing experience. The smartphone comes with a 12.2MP primary camera and an 8MP front camera with additional features like Night Sight, Super Res and Portrait mode. It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 Processor and has a memory combination of 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. This should allow you to use apps at a decent pace.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro

The Apple iPhone 11 Pro comes with a 5.8-inch display, making it a compact smartphone. The design of the smartphone has round edges, allowing you to hold it easily. The smartphone is laced with premium features like a triple camera setup at the back, a waterproof design with an IP68 rating and an A13 bionic chip with third-generation neural engine. The camera system of this smartphone should allow you to capture beautiful shots in telephoto mode, portrait mode, night mode and also record 4K videos up to 60fps. Thanks to the secure FaceID detection, you should be able to keep your smartphone safe and secure from any possible intrusions. It also comes with fast-charging capabilities and has an 18W fast charger to support you.

Samsung Galaxy S10e

If you are looking for a compact smartphone with a punch-hole camera at the front, then the Samsung Galaxy S10e is a good option. It comes with a 5.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a 438ppi pixel density, which should give you great viewing experience. It has a dual-camera setup at the back with a 16MP ultra-wide camera with an aperture value of f/2.2. It also has a 12MP wide camera with aperture values ranging from f/1.5 and f.2.4. On the front, it has a 10MP f/1.9 front-facing camera. The rear camera enables you to record videos in HDR10+ quality. You can charge the 3100mAh battery wirelessly which should help you ensure that you can minimise the clutter in your home. The smartphone should offer a smooth system as it is equipped with a 2.7GHz + 2.3GHz + 1.9GHz Exynos 9820 octa-core processor, 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory. All of this should help you to use heavy apps smoothly.

Apple iPhone XS

The Apple iPhone XS is a compact smartphone that has a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED Display to give you good viewing experience. The ergonomic build design of the smartphone should make it easy to hold while using it for long hours, making this a good option for those who make a lot of calls. The premium smartphone comes with a dual rear camera setup with two 12MP cameras with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation), giving you the power to click steady pictures. The 7MP TrueDepth front camera should allow you to click good portrait shots with great depth control features in it.
