I use redmi note 4 .. 5.5 inch and 165 grams.

Planning to buy a new phone but all new ones are big in size (6.5 inch ) and heavy (200 grams).

Are there any light weight phones now and light weight too ..

(the mobile companies are making only 6.5 inch or bigger phones now I believe! Apparently no less than 6 inch phone now..lol

+1;
All I could get in this category were Pixel series, iPhones, Samsung Galaxy S lite/e series; All these are premium and pretty costly; Not a single smartphone <6" in the budget section confused

Tough to find a compact phone in mid segment. All these companies launch dozens of phones every month, why can’t they launch one or two compact variants. Copycat mentality with little product differentiation.

I have been asking for so long.
One good news is… Pixel 4a .. the perfect size and weight but it is costly sad

The Nokia 6.1 plus was the last best compact phone. Sadly, it had its own set of problems so wouldn’t recommend

Compact phone is a new feature now. You have to pay premium for it.

So true.. smile

@@schumacher Yes, Nokia 6.1 Plus “was” a good phone… light weight, small size, 6 GB RAM etc. Note sure about the problems that you are mentioning… but it is now old… launched about 2 years ago. I would love more phones like this one.

I don’t there is any available phone in the market with above specs ( weight / size / thickness )

The only one that I can find matching these specs at present is Oppo F17 Pro but it is costly sad

The only option below 15k with 6" display seems to be Mi A3.

Just saw your reply. The Nokia 6 and 7 series had major issues with the charging port going bad after a few months of use. The phone just wouldn’t charge unless kept at certain angles. Just google for Nokia charging issue. Plus, buggy software updates.

Oh!
I think this is correct. I have Nokia 5.1 Plus and facing the same issue. Now I understand that this is common issue ( and a big issue ).

Will replacing charging port resolves the issue?
I tried changing cables and it is not much helpful.

Nokia has apparently agreed to replace the charging port if your phone is under within 18 months of purchase date..Technically, a 6 months extension from the warranty end date. So, you’ll have to replicate the issue at the service center in order to get a free replacemeent. Also, for a while they were duping customers claiming water damage to avoid this issue. So, its a hit or a miss.
