Small Android phone?

Hey guys. I need a new phone badly. Has anyone recently released a <6 inch phone? I'm currently using the Pixel 3a and the battery is almost gone. Rather just get a new phone than replace the battery. The Pixel 4a is an option but it's already down to only 2 years of support. Apple seems to be the only one making smallish phones.

Sadly, they're few and far between.

The S10e came out a couple years ago. Samsung has started supporting their phones for 4 years, but you'll be down to a couple years by now on that one.

Pixel 5 is listed at 6.0" if you can change that < to a ≤.

The Asus Zenfone 8 got a bit of attention when it came out earlier this year. A previous thread on it:

Because of the Pixel 3a's large bezels, the S21 is only 0.4 mm taller and 1.1 mm wider despite an 18% bigger screen. A S20 is even narrower.

Yes and I'm hearing the S22 base will have a 6 inch screen.

get a iphone SE (2020) its pretty much like a 5s.

a family member got the iphone 12 mini which is also pretty much, very little difference between the small 5s/SE.

Or just go visit some mobile shops locally and see if they have what you need............sometimes u find something

I was dreading moving from my Pixel 2 to a larger phone because it's difficult to hit the navigation buttons/gestures with one hand. Then I found an app called "One Handed Operation +" by Samsung which creates a customizable gesture bar on the side of the screen. That plus home screen gestures from Nova Launcher means I never have to reach the very top or bottom of the screen ever. Now I'm on an S20 FE and loving it. Something to consider if that's the issue.
