  • Damnit why do flagship screens have to get bigger and bigger, lets keep it at 5″ or less, if you want bigger then make a phablet version of your flagship! I shouldn’t have to get a lower specced phone just to have a smaller screen.

    • You don’t have to get a lower speced phone to get a smaller screen; you can get a Sony Xperia Compact. Why does no one acknowledge these phones, which have a small screen, high specs, and great battery life? :/

      • I have a sony xperia z2, it is a great phone but I hate that I can never find good accessories for it, yes part of it is cases and covers because I like that damnit but stupid sony don’t make good car cradles for the damn phone and no third party does either because everything is samsung this apple that. So it can get frustrating that your awesome phone is hamstrung by stupid crap like that. It gets worse the further from flagship you go as well, no good solid model specific accessories.
