I totally understand that there is a market for phones with small screens (by today’s standards). It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a smooth, modern phone under 6 inches.
The Nokia 6.1 which is now 4 years old has a 75mm x 148mm, 5.5 inch screen. I’ve already decided that I don’t want a phone bigger than this at any cost (okay; ok… I can live with 75 x 150mm, but you know what I mean), because other than that a phone with a back cover no longer fits in my pocket. I also want at least two OS versions as updates. So, if I want to stick with Android, it has to be an Android One, smaller than 75 x 148 mm… and it doesn’t exist (anymore). There are about 70 Samsung phones out there, but:
1. This is not Android One, and I absolutely don’t want a Samsung skin on Android.
2. I don’t even want Samsung. I refuse to put another cent into that salty C brand after the bad experiences I’ve had in the past. (From some of my own and those of acquaintances).
In short, if I want a long-running, regular-size phone, I’m pretty much obligated to buy an iPhone. Fortunately, this is not really a problem; I mainly use the apps on both platforms, and I already have an iPad Pro 12.9 from 2018. I’d never buy an Apple computer (very little power for a lot of money, and I don’t like OSX workflow), but with an iPad I’m pretty satisfied with the same . I think I can live with an iPhone.
But this price … but yes; If one cheaper iPhone lasts 6-7 years instead of 3-4, it’s not (much) more expensive than two ~350 phones. Fortunately, you don’t need a lot of storage.
