Will Manufacturers still make "small" phones like the sensation again?

If Samsung made a Galaxy S3 with 4.3" phone with 720p super amoled HD+ and exynos 32nm quad core with MALI 605 that would sell like hotcakes. That would sell better than iphones. Course it needs to have a good design and slim profile. BUT Alas they are going with 4.7" i hear. Thats not good if you want ur phone to sell like hotcakes! Most iphone user would chose a 4.3" device if they were to switch in my opinion.

Rezound and Xperia S has 4.3 but xperia is still a meh phone, rezound is fat and ugly.

I love the quality of HTC phones! But I am always relatively new to the game, usually get a older Android phone so I can get it at cheaper rates. I will probably look at the One S or the next HTC phone as a successor but for now my Sensation does a beautiful job! Much better than my previous Samsung phone, plus I hate the cheap feeling to Samsung's phones compared to HTC's!

But I agree with the OP, bigger than 4.3" is too much for me!

The perfect phone to me is basically something like the Sensation, a removable yet unibody back cover. I like the feeling of aluminum in my hands but the soft grip plastic also feels great! More RAM (maybe 1.5GB ), quad-core monster with 1.4GHz power! Good battery, all running the great Android OS in its natural state or a really nice, trimmed down custom overlay that doesn't gobble up RAM like Scooby-Doo with snacks!
