Why A Small Android Phone Doesn’t Make Sense In 2022

Samsung Galaxy S22

Some of the demands are a bit ambitious though, such as an antenna that allows the phone to latch on to 5G airwaves all across the world, a bootloader that can be unlocked, and cameras that are as good as the Pixel 5, especially in the low-light photography department. On paper, the “ideal” small phone envisioned by Migicovsky sounds great, but it also happens to be eerily similar to a few phones already on the shelves — the Samsung Galaxy S22, Asus Zenfone 8, and Sony’s awfully delayed Xperia 5 III. The only difference here is that the Asus offering packs a 5.9-inch display, while the Samsung and Sony phones push the diagonal screen real estate to 6.1-inches. In fact, these phones also go a step ahead by packing more cameras, sharper screens, and a design that is fresher and more refined compared to the mini iPhone that the Pebble founder is pushing as a template.

But who will make the Android phone that Migicovsky wants? Not him, for starters. It’s mostly a fan campaign, and the target is to get over 50,000 people to sign the petition, which “might” convince a smartphone maker to make such a device after assessing interest. And if that doesn’t happen, Migicovsky will embark on a personal journey to do so based on the experience and skills he acquired while running Pebble. It seems cruel to dismiss his ambitions, but the ground reality is that very few new phone brands leave a mark in the crowded smartphone industry, with OnePlus being an exception.

In a market brimming with chunky phones, the Galaxy S22 is the closest one gets to a reasonably small phone without too many compromises. And yet, despite all its flagship goodness, the battery life is ridiculously bad. Then there’s the issue with poor thermal management, as the phone quickly warms up after playing any graphically-intensive game for more than half an hour or just clicking photos and videos on a sunny day. Sony and Asus’ compact phones lag far behind Samsung in the longevity of software support, and also don’t necessarily offer a more refined UI experience, camera output, or battery chops to one-up their Samsung rival, which makes recommending them even harder. While a Kickstarter campaign from Migicovsky might appeal to those nostalgic about compact sizes, the caveats far outweigh the perks of having a small Android phone in one’s pocket.
