Will VKWorld F1 smartphone Regain Popularity in 2016?

Will Small-Screen Phone Regain Popularity in 2016?
In 2011, Samsung launched the very first Galaxy Note which featured a striking 5.3-inch huge display. Since then, smartphone screens are becoming bigger and bigger. And even Apple whosticks to 3.5 and 4.0-inch screens released the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the even bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Nowadays, most smartphone screens exceed 5 inches and some even reach 6 or 7 inches. However, after the release of iPhone 6s, there are endless rumors that Apple will again make a 4-inch iPhone in 2016, which reflects the need for  small-screen phones. Sony already announcedtheir Xperia Compact line in 2013. And recently the Chinese manufacturer vkworld is also  going to bring a 4.5-inch smartphone-vkworld F1. Why do they try to produce smaller phone which seems incompatible with today’s market?

Does smaller phone have advantages compared to bigger one?
Holding experience:
-Width under 7cm is the limit for most people to use a phone with one hand. And it is impossible to make a phone with 5.5-inch screen narrow down to 7cm. When you stand in a bus or have only one hand available, it would be hard to use your 5.5-inch phone with only one hand. But if you are using a smaller phone like iPhone 6s or vkworld F1, there will be no such problem.

-Smaller phone can fit better in pocket while bigger phone often  exceed the limit of most pockets. And smaller phone is easier to  carry around and weighs lighter.
Customer preference:
-After Apple released its 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone, Chitika made a comparison between these two new devices in terms of traffic rate in U.S. And surprisingly, iPhone 6 accounts for 2.3% while iPhone 6 Plus only 0.3%.
That means there are actually many people who prefer smaller phone. And the market need for smaller phone is still not neglectable.

Power consumption:
-Bigger screen will definitely cost more power than smaller screen. With same IPS display and same resolution and same battery capacity, a 4.5-inch screen saves more than 20% of battery power than a 5.5-inch one.

Most big screen phone has to increase resolution to maintain high pixel density, which also consumes more power. But small screen like 4.5 inches can stays at 720P and still keeps 326 ppi.

Above all, the market of small phone is not extinct. And small phone has more advantages than we may think. Now we don’t have many choices of small phone other than iPhone 5s, 6s, Xperia Compact and vkworld F1 mentioned before etc. But in 2016, if Apple releases the 4-inch iPhone, many companies would follow it and at that time we will have more choices. And the vkworld F1 might be the first one to rejoin the army of small-screen phone in 2016.
