Cell Phone Size

by cj_mathis / March 24, 2013 11:02 PM PDT

I have to galaxy s3 and I love my phone, the only problem I have with it is the size. It is to big.
I have an upgrade coming up and I am starting to look at other phones but, unsure what would be the best choiice.
I was wondering what other smartphones would be just as good but not as big.
Any help would be really appreciated.

Depends on what you mean with "just as good". Why is the S3 good for you (apart from its size)?

I see a tendency for phones to be used as a computer (for mail and chat and Facebook) or as a movie cameras (to make a movie) or as a game devices (for playing computer games) or as e-reader (to read the newspaper or an e-book) or as a device to view movies.
For those uses you need a bigger screen than just for making a call or sending a sms. A phone with a smaller screen would definitely be worse in stead of 'just as good' or better.

Your choice to find the right device for what you want to do with it. Or two devices, like a feature phone to phone and a tablet to use as a computer, a camera, a game device, an e-reader and a movie viewer.

I like the S3 because I never have any issues with it other than the sixe.

I mean I can't fit it in my pocket with my otterbox on it.

I use it for facebook,instagram, and games for the most part.
I have a laptop and a tablet so I don't need it as my computer so much.

Ihate that when I text or try to type something I miss keys and misspell words because the keypad is to big for me to reach all the correct letters.
I want to be able to text without a problem and not have to go back through correct almost every word I have typed.

I just really want other peoples opinions on what would is a good phone that doesn't have a lot of technical issues that
has a smaller screen and just smaller in general.

The iPhone 5 is not similar in price to the Samsung S III. I can buy a new S III for $99 at Best Buy. Not as cheap for the newest iPhone.
