[Deal Alert] Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact down to $399.99 ($200 off) at Amazon and Best Buy, $379.99 for pink on B&H

Phones are getting massive, and even the smaller versions of Android flagships these days aren't all that small.

If you long for a phone that you can easily use one-handed, this phone might be your match.
