    With all due respect.

    It's not so much that Android OEMs can't make a compact flagship, it's that they simply don't want to. They don't want to devote R&D resources to make a product that will, at best, sell only as much as their actual flagship.

    What am I willing to give up for a compact flagship? A lot.

    Memory capacity. RAM. A bit of battery life. The unnecessary cameras.

    120Hz screens? 90 is plenty.

    Small phones can't have decent battery life? Bollocks, my good sir. The Xperia Compact series disagrees with that claim.

    4 cameras on a small phone? The Pixel and iPhone embarrass other OEMs with 2 cameras already.

    TL;DR - 12 gigs of RAM. 128 gigs of storage. Two 12-16 megapixel cameras. A 5.5 inch 90Hz display. On Android. Show me that, and I'll gladly hand you my money yesterday.

    It will give a good option to people missing flagship experience.
    Great photos can be taken with just two camera with refinement as proved by Pixel. said:
    Good RAM, good if not the best Processor, decent battery with warp/dash charge and obviously with Oxygen OS one can make it possible.
    In the end it should be as smooth as brand flagship.
    Let's try! 👍

    a compact flagship Is a Dream for me, i rather a device 5.6 5.8inch ( under 6), a 775g or 875 (if system have top optimization) , with a 4k battery capacity , and a refresh rate at 90 htzs . pop up camera Is officially shelved ? a clean display ( like 7pro) It s not a bada idea i think
    i really Hope in a compact device [e]1f60d[/e]

    And yet you copy their steps on OOS11... smh


    Anyway... nobody cares if you compromise as long as you execute with perfection.

    1. Battery life: Make the phone slightly thicker.
    2. Software: Stop trying to copy samsung skin and leave the stock android for less resource consumption.
    3. Display technology: Keep an HD 90hz display.
    4. Camera hardware: Keep a couple cameras and fix the underperforming processing. (Pixel phones have proven it is possible to do more with less.)

    you can bring small form factor phone with 9 series which could have all the flagship features and hardware
    instead of 3-4 camera module bring it with 2 camera module with flagship camera sensor , processor and all the good stuff in it at last .I am fan you OnePlus guys you are doing great job so keep it up and I am waiting for small phone or 9 mini .

    Maybe a little bit of all, kinda put all the second best thing in it except the processor. It should lie somewhere between the nord and 8t. ( A bit closer to 8t)
