Size Matters

Why are all unlocked Android phones that support Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T in a single unlocked model also huge?  A 6" screen is not a luxury, it's a burden.  4.7" is as big as a phone can be and still fit in a normal person's hand.  Beyond that, you need two hands for anything besides talking on the phone or you'll drop it.  Motorola, LG, and Samsung need to copy Apple harder.  At least when it comes to screen size and cellular frequency support.  The batteries will last longer with the lower resolution too.  Make an unlocked Sony Z5 Compact for the American market and take my money!

Update:  Sony actually put out a version of the Z5 Compact for the US market.  It's super duper expensive and lacks the fingerprint sensor.   So so close.
