/e/ smartphone with smallest screen

Personally I also prefer Phones with small screens but guess the phone manufacturers do not agree with that view. The current lot of phones pop out of shirt pockets and need both hands to usefully operate. The set of phones you mention are from a breed that is getting extinct. Most of them are on the ‘to be dropped’ list mainly because of lack of vendor support.

Hi @piero for users selling /e/ phones we have a section here. If you are interested in some form of partnership or seller agreement with /e/ you can contact the team at contact@e.email . I will discuss this internally with the team members as well. Not sure we have started such arrangements as yet but guess we should start thinking along those lines.

The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016 Exynos) “a3xeltexx” SM-A310 F/M/Y isn’t the smallest of the smaller than 5 inch Android™ smartphones. But it has a noble style of Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and metal frame.

Dimensions:

  • 134.5 x 65.2 x 7.3 mm (5.30 x 2.57 x 0.29 in)

  • 4.7 inches Super AMOLED Dispaly, display resolution in pixels 720 x 1280 (HD)

Note: in /e/ documentation - Screen: 540x960 (pixel) and Dimensions 130.1 x 65.2 x 7.3 mm do not correspond to the Samsung data sheet specs.


As with stockROM Android™ 7.0 (Nougat), it also supports 128 GB microsSD cards with LOS 17.1 and /e/ OS 9-pie, which can be used either as mobile removable memory or internal memory expansion.

you want a small phone, not bigger than a credit card?

The s5mini is also a great device

Nice, but probably a bit too small for my ageing eyes :slight_smile: It’s wasted if I have to carry a pair of glasses as well as my phone.
I still have a Sony Ericsson X10 Mini languishing in a drawer, after I stopped using it when I could no longer read the screen. It came with Android 1.6 (Donut), upgradable to 2.1 (Eclair), so it’s probably not going to run /e/ os very well :slight_smile:

For near to 5 years, I broswed the web with a 2.4" display (320x240) on my phone, with OperaMini (Java) ; Jelly 2.0 is a gigantic phone !

And since a few years, I’m 7/7 :nerd_face: too…

Heavy for me please :

ps have a look at the rugged phones by Unihertz, they are small and good for outside use. No /e/ on them though.

The Unihertz Atom XL is not the smallest phone per se, but it might be the smallest DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) Phone. This would be pretty cool to have /e/ on!

It can use cell service, FRS (Family Radio Service) frequencies like a typical “walkie talkie”, and if you’re a licensed amateur radio operator… you can talk on the 70 centimeter band. No cell service required! :slight_smile:

I don’t personally own one of these, but it might be pretty nice if I decide to get rid of my Razer Phone someday.
