The iPhone 6S vs. the ‘small’ Android phones that still exist

The newly announced iPhone 6S is one of the few remaining premium smartphones with a “small” 4.7-inch screen.

Most premium Android phones have already gone big into phablet territory and left the small screen game to budget devices.

These days, a small phone is any device with a 5-inch screen or under. Here’s how the new iPhone 6S compares to the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge, HTC One M9 and Sony Xperia Z5 Compact.
