As you are all aware Chinese phone makers have fully embraced the 5-inch + screen market, leaving very little choice for smaller quad-core phones. Luckily there are a few and they are available at great prices.
The start of this year has seen a flood of Chinese Android phones with ever-increasing screen sizes, but what about for those of us who don’t want huge screen phones but still want the benefit of a quad-core processor.
Thankfully there are a few options available such as the recently launched JiaYu G3S and THL W100. Both phones come with smaller 4.5-inch displays and both are powered by a 1.2Ghz quad-core MT6589 processor and 1GB RAM.
