Someone made an Android phone the size of a credit card and it costs less than $100

Despite the fact that phablets have become the standard in the smartphone industry these days, some people don’t like their smartphones to be very large. Luckily, there are still plenty of average-sized smartphones out there, although when it comes to flagships the offer is kind of limited.

Even though there are a plethora of average-sized handsets available on the market, we can’t say the same thing about small smartphones. And when we say small, we mean credit card-sized small.

A Japanese company unveiled its rather niche product (hence the name) called …


Razer Phone size comparison vs Galaxy Note 8, S8, S8+, Pixel 2 XL, LG V30, iPhone 8 Plus, and all the rest

With no RGB lighting in sight, gaming company Razer has just officially forayed into the smartphone market, a niche that is not quite welcoming to newcomers. The likes of Samsung, Apple, Google, Huawei, and LG are not going to voluntarily squeeze themselves so that the gaming paraphernalia giant could fit in. 

But what if it caters to a subniche that remains largely ignored – mobile gaming? True, mobile gaming doesn’t hold a candle to PC and console ones, but there’s still a large bunch of smartphone users whose needs for exceptional framerates …

HTC U11 Life size comparison vs iPhones, Galaxy and mid-range phones

The HTC U11 Life is… well, live, and it is the company’s newest affordable phone that will be sold in the United States.
The U11 Life is a 5.2-inch device with the Snaprdagon 630 chip inside, which usually translates into better battery life than usual, a key advantage for a modern smartphone.
But how does the phone stack up against the iPhones, major Android phones and other phones closer to its price range in terms of physical size? After all, many 5.5-inch devices these days might be just too big to comfortably …

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL battery test is ready: same size, better life

Gather around, Google phone lovers, we’ve got small Pixels and large Pixels, and both have undergone a rigorous battery life testing on our proprietary script that mimics heavy daily usage. The Pixel 2 and its XL brethren managed to beat their predecessors by a decent amount of longevity, and it’s not that their battery capacities have changed in any meaningful amount to boot.

Thus, with almost the same capacity as its predecessor, the Pixel 2 managed to outlast the Pixel with a full hour of screen-on time more, which leads us to the thought that the new and more …

Huawei Mate 10 vs iPhone X vs Galaxy Note 8 vs Google Pixel 2 XL: size comparison

After introducing its P10 and P10 Plus flagships in the early months of this year, Chinese phone maker Huawei is concluding 2017 with a bang. In case you haven’t heard, this bang comes in the form of the company’s Mate 10 lineup which just broke cover during a launch event in Munich, Germany. 
Three smartphones were announced today – the Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, and Mate 10 Porsche Design. The regular Mate 10 might not have a fancy label attached to its name, but it could end up as the most popular handset of the bunch. It’s much more affordable …

Huawei Mate 10 Pro vs Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL, and the best of the rest: size comparison

Out of the three Huawei smartphones unveiled today, the Mate 10 Pro is certainly the one that attracts the most attention. The Chinese company has clearly played to its strengths with its latest top-end handset, as it features a nearly bezel-less design, the powerful AI-enabled Kirin 970 chipset, and a very capable Leica-branded main dual-camera.

Despite its strong sides, the new handset will have to face a veritable murderers’ row in the high-end spectrum of the smartphone market. Other big names such as Apple, Samsung, Google, and LG have all released …

Apple iPhone X vs Google Pixel 2 XL vs Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30: Specs and size comparisons

It’s now clear what the main antagonists for late 2017’s smartphone championship are – the upcoming Apple iPhone X, the Google Pixel 2 XL, the exceptional Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and finally, the LG V30. An exceptional round-up of devices, for sure, with each vying for its rightful place in your pocket. But with the hefty premium prices that almost all of these command, you will most likely want to narrow your choice to a single of said devices. Sorry, three will have to go with only one spot available!

So, which one should you pick?

The Apple …

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL vs the Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X, and the best of the rest: size comparison

Google has just made its 2017 smartphone lineup official in the form of the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The Google Pixel 2 features a 5-inch 1080p display, retaining the more traditional design of last year’s model, while the Pixel 2 XL follows 2017 trends and is outfitted with a QHD+ 18:9 display surrounded by thin bezels. Employing two very different designs for its new flagship lineup is a smart move on Google’s part and an excellent way to cover all bases: have an “oldschool” device with larger bezels to cater to traditionalists, and have another …

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8, S8 vs LG V30 vs Essential Phone: "bezel-less" size comparison

Xiaomi, a company that is big in China, but has no official presence in the United States (and very little in Europe), has launched its best phone yet: the bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
The Mi Mix 2 is the successor of what’s arguably the first bezel-less phone: last year’s gigantic, 6.44-inch Mi Mix.
The original Mi Mix was deemed a “concept phone” and sold in limited quantities, and it never really proved all that practical, not least because of its huge size. The new Mi Mix 2, however, has taken some valuable lessons …

Motorola Moto X4 size comparison versus the competition

So, there’s a new noteworthy mid-ranger on th block, and it’s the Moto X4.

With a rather good hardware set under the hood, the X4 is no longer a high-end profile handset but a rather well-equipped mid-ranger that promises excellent battery life. You can read more about the handset here.
Now, let’s turn our attention to the overall size and dimensions of the Moto X4. Standing at 5.84 x 2.89 x 0.31 inches (148.35 x 73.5 x 7.99 mm) and weighing at 5.75 oz (163 g), and having a screen-to-body ratio of 68.46%, the Moto X4 is not exactly a sleek handset, …
