Best Small Phones (2019)


We review our favourite mini mobile phones available in 2019, across a range of budgets – including cheap smaller handsets such as the Xperia XA2, up to premium compacts like the Pixel 3. These are all under 6-inches and in many cases around the 5-inch mark, so one-handed use is refreshingly easy.

The Palm Phone is of course one of the top smallest devices you can buy in 2019, at just 3.3-inches. Despite that diminutive stature, the Palm is a fully-functional Android smartphone, offering complete app support etc. Here in the UK it’s a Vodafone exclusive.

Our list of the best small mobile phones also includes two Sony devices – the Xperia XZ2 Compact and the Xperia XA2, both of which boast strong specs and design for a good UK price. And we round it off with the iPhone XS, Pixel 3 and a super-cheap Alcatel handset.

What’s you favourite mini mobile? Don’t forget, we only feature phones that we’ve personally used and reviewed, so apologies if your pick of the best isn’t mentioned!
