I would also prefer a small screen but sadly it is fashionable to do 5.5+ these days
To my knowledge, 3GB is still defined as minimum, not as final decission. We’ll see.
Still, I can imagine 3GB on Linux surpasses 4GB on Android
I hate squinting at small screens. I have a Note 3 currently, and every time I have to look at smaller screens, it reminds me how thankful I am that everything is not cramped into such a tiny space
