In 2017, talking about "phablets" and the division of smartphones into "big and small" is somehow not accepted. A modern mobile phone is large by default, and the diagonal of its screen rarely drops below 5.2 inches. The reasons are simple - despite the initial dislike, users eventually realized that watching Instagram photos on a spacious screen and typing on Facebook is, in general, much more enjoyable than peering into pixels.

But what, at a time when Huawei P10 is considered "compact", to do to those who value, first of all, modest dimensions and autonomy? For those who think that even the tiny iPhone SE is too big? And at the same time he does not want to switch to push-button retro “tubes”, losing the functions of modern devices? The answer, as often happens in such cases, is obvious - go to Kickstarter.
Chinese enthusiasts from Unihertz have rolled out to the crowdfunding platform Jelly - a really tiny smartphone that nevertheless runs on the latest numbered version of Android - 7.0 Nougat and supports 4G, which is a rarity even in "full" budget devices.

The Jelly screen measures 2.45 inches, half the size of the Galaxy S7 or the old Nexus 5. The smartphone is so small (92 mm in length and 43 mm in width) that it fits into that "unnecessary" additional pocket of jeans, where not every bunch of keys fits.
At the same time, all the delights of modern smartphones are on board: a color multitouch screen with a decent resolution for such a diagonal, two slots for SIM cards, a quad-core processor, a gigabyte of RAM and 8 GB of built-in memory. All this is enough for the normal operation of the seventh version of Android: you can freely use instant messengers, surf the Internet or watch videos, even though the smartphone was not created for this. If you want everything to work very quickly, you can even order the "Pro" version, where both memory is twice as large.
The Jelly even has two cameras: a front one with 2 megapixels and a main one with 8 megapixels. You shouldn't expect outstanding image quality, but you can take pictures of text or take selfies if necessary.
The main feature of the device, in addition to its ultra-compact size, is the battery life. Not every smartphone can live three days without recharging in active load mode. And if you use Jelly only for calls and SMS, it will work for a week, bringing back the nostalgia for the days of Nokia 3310.
The Jelly can be ordered on Kickstarter for $ 69, the Pro version for $ 95. Three colors - white, blue and black. Delivery is scheduled for August 2017.>
