Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Worth noting that today's 5" phones are generally the same size as the 92x phones, just with a 5" display and a little bit of extra height.
Namely the 4.7" 73x, 5" 830 and 640...
4.5 is the same as 5 confused lol?? looking at the 635 model right now!, the 640 vs 635 seems bit of a difference.
129.5 x 66.7 x 9.2 mm, 78.5 cc (5.10 x 2.63 x 0.36 in) VS 141.3 x 72.2 x 8.8 mm (5.56 x 2.84 x 0.35 in)
925 looks nice, but read it isn't great with battery! Think i will wait for the new win 10 phone releases. and keep 532 for now. No 4.5 are appealing to me with the features i need.
I think that when the next phones come out, it is a gamble as to whether there will even be a 4.5" screen. The entire industry is going larger.
The 925 easily got me through a day, but I'm not a power user. You are right to be wary though. Those batteries are aging now and it is a sealed unit.
I'd give that Blu Win JR LTE another look if I were you. The Snapdragon 410 SoC is a solid processor for that class, you get flash with your camera and 2000 mAh is a nice battery size to power a 4.5" screen - especially with the increased efficiency of the 410 SoC. Best part: Blu has pledged this unit will get 10. Blu has a trend going of pushing OTAs quickly after they get it from Microsoft. It's Factory Unlocked and no carrier in the way of your upgrade to 10.
Here's the spec: BLU Win JR LTE - Full phone specifications
Most likely this won't change with Windows 10. For some weird reason OEMs all seem to think that premium equals large, thus there are no full-featured phones with screens smaller than 5" anymore. If you want something small you have to either buy an outdated model or an "affordable" device that will have several corners cut.
Good luck to you anyway, I'm in the same boat. Had the 635 and 830, and both were too large for me. Now, not only because of size but for other reasons too, I'm back to the 4" iPhone 5S and am loving it, and also keep an 3.5" iPhone 4S around that I like even more and would use as daily driver if it wasn't for the dying battery that I didn't get around to replace yet.
I'm still using a 920 which has a 4.5 inch screen... Which feels about the right size.
