    yeah... but if the phone has modern day minimalist bezels... maybe it will be worth looking at. I went from 4.7" to 4.3" samsungs... massive difference. I can't see current SE owners upgrading to an SE2 unless the bezels are tiny to non-existing.

    Sony's new Xperia 5 while slightly bigger than the S10e, is a lot more manageable due to its 21:9 screen ratio.

    i dunno if i consider the xperia 5 to be "compact" anymore. i mean, it's fair to argue that phones overall are getting bigger so that relatively, it might be compact.... but at the same time, my hands and my pockets arent getting any bigger. i reckon the xz2 compact was their last true compact flagship-spec model.

    Been pretty happy with the S10e purchased from these forums in June or July.
    Reason I chose it was size, fits top pocket of the hi viz shirt buttoned shut where I can still hear it and respond.
    It has some annoyances such as the Samsung text prediction and vocabulary, Samsung's bloatware (same shit from Sony in my experience) and a battery that should have about an extra 10 to 15 percent more energy for comfort...

    Would love to have a better ROM, but that's beyond me time wise atm...

    SE2 is iPhone 9 and is a 4.7 behemoth.

    disappointed to say the least.

    Everything about SE2 is still rumours though - or have you got pics and specs from somewhere?

    i just want a Razr 2, the first gen gets the design and form factor right hoping the next gen bumps the specs and the battery up a bit.

    I'm really hoping Samsung build a competing product i don't know how many remember but SS made great flips back in the day I had three generations of them and they are some of the best I owned and imo handily trounced the Razr for build quality.
