Now that the new iPhone SE 4.7" display is "small," an Android manuf. should make a 4.5" or smaller phone for the sizeable market that wants a small phone! Like a 4" Moto G Mini w/ a mid-range CPU starting at $199!
You, readers and bloggers, have either an Android smartphone or an iPhone, unless you’ve chosen an old-school classic “dumb” phone. In the US, there’s about a 50% chance that you have an iPhone right now. That’s according to a research site I ran into while sheltering and surfing in place. It also revealed more.

Last Summer, when I ditched my iPad and switched to Chromebook, I started thinking about doing the same with my phone - iPhone to Android. Naturally! It just makes sense to go all-in with the Google stuff. But I hesitated, finding it a bit more concerning to fix something that isn’t broken. My iPhone 7, despite its age, is working great.
