Since there are some hundred phones at the usual places then the answer must be no. There is no phone for you today. I get by with a simpler android phone but it works for me so for me, most phones are great.
In your case, and with so many phones out, there's something odd as you didn't find a phone you wanted.
I'm really tired of carrying my iPhone 5s around. It's heavy. It's clunky. It takes up valuable space.
I want a good, lighter, smaller phone.
I want to hear the conversation.
I want to be able to read text, but I certainly don't need the screen-size of an iPhone.
I like apps, of course: Notes, Calendar/reminders.
A simple camera is nice; videos are unimportant to me.
Voice control is nice, but not essential.
Speaker for hands-free use is vital.
But I'm not a gamer and I don't plan on watching videos on my device. I don't need Facetime type apps.
My feeling is that all the pads and notebooks out there can deal with the needs that fit their size and that phones now should be getting smaller and not trying to cross into iPad-like territory.
So here's my first question. Are there good cellphones that actually fit my needs?
And my second question: Am I alone in this configuration? Or are there others who pretty much want the same thing?
