Availability of Samsung Mini phones.

Will Verizon offer a Samsung Mini phone? I have an S6, while it is a nice phone, it's too big to comfortably fit in my pocket. It's the last big phone I will buy on anyone's network even if I have to go back to a Flip phone.

Thanks!

Verizon doesn't build phones.  Since larger screens are the ones that sell, you can expect thats what will be sold.  The only small screen is the iPhone.

There's not really any small screen phones. If you're looking for a phone like the Samsung S4 Mini or the Samsung S III Mini, then check out these phones below...

Apple iPhone SE: 4inch Screen Size

LG K8 V: 5inch Screen Size

Samsung Galaxy J3 V: 5inch Screen Size

Hope this helps.

The LG and Samsung seem gigantic compared to the s4 mini.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Alpha that I'm very fond of.  (I'm on AT&T).  Pity no one but Apple is making pocket size phones.

But you said it earlier. The larger screen phones are the ones that sell. No company is going to put money into developing and supporting a device that won't sell.

Apple came out with the iPhone SE after people SCREAMED for them to make a bigger device then screamed that it was too big.

I use the LG V10 which is 5.7 inches and when I compare it to my husband's iPhone 6S the iPhone looks sooooooo tiny,

Lol.  So true!  The 5S was the last really small screen without sacrificing specs.   The SE is the only small phone in 2 years.  And the battery life is pretty good compared with the phablets.

Love the Alpha, but the battery lasts half a day.  If AT&T would release the MM update it might last longer.  Still no regrets.

Yeah I know they seem gigantic but I work with phones on a daily basis (I'm a Tech guy) and my experience is - Smaller screen sacrifice in specs; however the SE is the only phone that seems to be keeping up with the big dogs even being a 4inch screen like you said. I mean, honestly I love my GS7E hasn't let me down yet, and the NOTE 7 I've used too and it's been good so far I am honestly worried about the upcoming SU hoping it doesn't break it.
