I miss being able to hold my phone comfortably in one hand.

This stupid propping it up with you pink sucks ass and isn't natural.

I get that they're basically super computers in your hand, but fuck man

That's literally my first requirement for a phone, that it be small and actually fit inside my hand without any straining. It gets harder everytime I need a replacement - like, dudes, if I wanted aa small tablet, I'd buy a small tablet. I want a phone.

Yeah, same here. Except it didn't get "harder" but simply impossible. There is not a single compact android phone on the market. You could get the iPhone se or the iPhone 13 Mini, but the compact iPhones are discontinued as well, so you'd switch ecosystems for a single generation of devices just to then be stranded again.

That is wonderful. Got really excited until I remembered @Opafi said Android. Wish they would release it with a Linux OS.

I have no loyalty to Apple at this point, but I am certainly not leaving just to end up with Google instead.

iPhone 13 Mini

That is surprisingly passable. I have been disillusioned with Apple for so long that I somehow missed a phone I would actually upgrade into intentionally.

I have been kicking myself every since I went to a 7 after I got caught in the rain with my original SE.

Zenfone 10 proves that you can fit a lot of phone in a small place and none if its problems are from its size.

Try a pop socket. Wife got me one and it gets rid of this issue for me.

Personally I don't have tiny baby hands, so I dont need to worry about that... but it would definitely be nice if there were more options to choose from.

[-] [email protected] -4 points 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago)

Yeah, but I've heard about your baby dick, so I'm fine with smaller hands...

EDIT: Sorry, it was intended as just a silly joke-response, no one's actually sensitive here!

[-] [email protected] 2 points 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago)

Yowch, someone's a little sensitive... Trump, is that you?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 8 months ago

Pop sockets. I never do the pinky thing.

There is no evidence to support that holding moden phones have changed bond structure in fingers.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 8 months ago

While you're correct, my own anecdotal evidence says that it's still uncomfortable as fuck, and I'd rather have a smaller phone. I miss my Nexus One from way back in the day.

[-] Retrograde 3 points 8 months ago

Small/thin phones are out there. Check out the Sony Xperia 5, I'm using the 5 IV and it's a brilliant wee phone and fits in your hand really nicely. Also has a headphone jack and notification LED.

The way I hold my phone I never have to use my pinky while typing and passively holding my phone I use my thumb along the bottom, forefinger up one side and balance the back with my middle finger.

Understandably lots of different shapes and sizes of hands means not everyone can do that but you should be able to find a grip that works for you.

That or buy one of the Sony phones. They are feature rich and offer small models.
