Is there a 4" Android?

What 4" Android models are there that will work with t-mobile? I really like Apple's new small phone but I hate Apple.

FYI: I am not looking for some old POS used Android 3G from ebay. I want a new, modern Android but small. Not looking to save money either just get a good smaller phone.

Unfortunately when they say 4gb of memory, they mean storage. This phone has 512mb of RAM. Also doesn't have lte. I'd avoid it for both those reasons.

The canonical good small Android phone is the z5 compact, but that's still 4.6". I don't know if there's a good answer to OP's question.

Not many 4.0", I think it's a little too hard to read and type on a 4" phone.

There are a few 4.5-4.7" phones and some a little closer to the 5" mark. Quite a few of the phones that are <5" have lackluster specs, the Moto E 2015 isn't that impressive but bests most of it's prepaid 4.5" competition. The iPhone SE still has a good camera and processor.

If you can stomach closer to 5", here are some options: LG G4c, Nexus 5X, LG X Screen, Samsung Galaxy A3, Samsung Galaxy J3. But some of these phones, even newly released ones, may never see marshmallow given the state of android updates.

Oh I like the Nexus 5X, I'll have to see if it runs on T-Mobile.

The 5X is fully supported on t-mobile, band 12 and wifi calling/VOLTE. Highly recommend, especially with the deals lately.

Nexus 5X is a great choice. I wish local retailers / carrier stores would sell it, that might shame some of the other phone mfgs into behaving better.

Set a deal alert for it and buy one the next time it's on sale.

Also, you might consider project fi over t-mobile if you're on Android. Google's even offering $150 off the 5X if you join.
