    Sony, except the battery, but that is coming with new EU regulation.

    Actually cheap phones often have more of these things, although it’s getting rarer.

        They’re skinnier and shaped in a more compact way. And I think the lower models are still smaller, aren’t they? Even if not exactly the compact/mini models they used to make.

          Their aspect ratio is much wider. Still, they’re not using this to make smaller phones but simply make phones that are just as wide as other phones even taller, making the top of the screen even harder to reach. The Xperia 10 and 5 Vs are both 68 mm wide, which is just as wide as a zenfone, but 8.5 mm taller.

            Yea, and Zenfone 10 is the “small” phone, isn’t it? So this is as wide as that, and much skinnier than usual phone sizes. The assignment said “compact”, not “small”.

              The zenfone is sometimes called small because that phablet is absurdly one of the smallest phones you can get right now. Still, that doesn’t make it small or compact. The XZ1 compact was 64x129 mm. The zenfone is 68.1x146.5 mm. And with those bezels on the older Sony, the top part of the display were actually in reach of your thumb. The zenfone has a 5.92 inch display… That’s not small. You know which phone is just a μ wider but also smaller than the zenfone? The fucking galaxy S22. The Samsung flagship. Those aren’t compact or small and the fact that people call them that in the absence of actually small android phones doesn’t make it any better. The only compact or small phones right now are the iPhones 13 Mini and the se which are both the last of their kind.
