    Small smartphone 2nd Dec 17 at 10:19 PM
    Mobile phone's are getting bigger and bigger but my hands are still the same size and there are less models to choose from.
    I'm looking for a sim free phone with a 4-4.7 inch screen. iPhone 5s size fits my hand nicely, so did the original moto g and an lg k3. The new moto g5 and Nokia 3 etc are too big to hold comfortably.
    So can anyone recommend a small smartphone I can buy new sim free?

    Another vote for the iPhone SE, visit and buy from an Apple Store for really good help with setup and migration from your current phone.

    Thanks for the suggestions two very good phones. As I am a light user eg no games or films etc are there any cheaper options? The A3 is around 200 or more and SE 300.

    Depends on what sort of spec you're looking for. A Vodafone Smart Mini 7 isn't exactly an iPhone SE but can be bought for £25 and unlocked for £0.99 on ebay.

    iPhone SE is the smallest one they do, great for small hands and not very expensive either. I paid just £279 for one last week.
