Best Compact Smartphones Worth Considering in 2014
Smartphones have come a long way and are an integral part of our daily lives today – by looking at most people, you almost expect to see them start fusing to the human body soon. Today's phones are more powerful than the PCs we used just a few years ago – imagine that – and there is a wide range of models to choose from.
But not everyone is pleased with the direction smartphones are heading. The general trend with smartphones in recent years is they continue to grow in size and weight. We're almost at a point where phones with 5" screens are the new norm!
That means they no longer fit in the palm of the hand, and the worst part is that smartphones manufacturers have this weird notion that consumers opting for smaller phones don't want the latest and greatest features at their disposal.
Thankfully, some companies are wising up and addressing the issue, and some great options have emerged in the last 6-12 months.
We've picked some worth considering below; let us know in the comments if there's something else you'd like to see in your smartphones!

Born and raised in Torrance, California, Vlad has been obsessed the technology and computers since the day he could walk. If he couldn’t work in computers, he was definitely going to be an architect, even though he’s a product guru (and a hidden wordsmith).
Vlad has a Bachelors in IT and, a little embarrassingly, a pair of Darth Vader underwear. He’ll outgrow both when he completes his MBA.
Besides his obsession with tech, Vlad spends his time contemplating business structures, the role of politics in finance and more importantly, the cross-continental shipping policies of America’s mega businesses. We jest a little, but only because you’re meant to give your editor a bit of grief, right?
