Out of all the best smartphone options we\u2019ve looked at, the Palm Phone PVG100 stands out among the best small phones due to its minute size. The 3.3\u201d screen is almost as small as the screen found on flip phones, which is why this device is essentially a companion phone rather than the main device; it\u2019s simply too small to handle all your daily tasks!\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Palm Phone PVG100\r\nMore of a companion device than a primary phone, the Palm Phone PVG100 is a unique, tiny cellular device with all the capabilities of an average cell phone crammed into a credit-card-sized frame.\r\n\r\nOverall Performance\r\nIt\u2019s certainly not a powerhouse, but considering its size, we were impressed it even had the Play Store. The PVG100 runs on Android 8.1 (generations behind modern phones like the Google Pixel 5) and is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8940 Snapdragon 435 CPU. It offers an unimpressive 3 GB of RAM but has a surprisingly large amount of internal storage considering its size (32 GB of eMMC storage). As expected, it doesn\u2019t have a slot for an SD card, so you are limited to 32 GB for all your files and apps.\r\nBattery Life\r\nRunning on a non-removable 800 mAh lithium-ion battery, the Palm will be dead shortly after you turn it on. If (for some reason) you plan on using it as your main phone, expect to be recharging the device at least 3 times a day, if not more. Fortunately, this phone offers fast charging, so you can recharge the entire battery in a little over an hour. Still, if you plan on using this device for any length of time, you will definitely need to bring a charger along.\r\nDisplay\r\nIf you can get past the fact that the screen is only 3.3 inches, you\u2019ll notice that the display on the PVG100 is actually pretty good! With an aspect ratio of 16:9 and a resolution of 720 x 1280p, this Palm phone comes very close to the PPI of the Apple iPhone 11 Pro (476 PPI) at 445 pixels per inch. The display itself is an IPS panel, so viewing angles are good though it\u2019s unlikely you\u2019ll be looking at the device from a distance. If you are looking for a better screen then you should check out the 6.7 inch display on the iPhone 12 Pro Max.\r\nDurability\r\nDespite its small size, the Palm Phone PVG100 is actually a very durable device. The frame is made of aluminum, and the phone utilizes Gorilla Glass 3 on both the front and the back. It\u2019s also IP68 rated (like the Apple iPhone 12 Mini), which means it\u2019s invulnerable to dust and can last up to half an hour under 1 meter of water without damage. The durable setup is actually very beneficial because should you lose the device, it will most likely still work when you find it.\r\nValue\r\nThis phone is an impractical and unique device that will probably interest some people, but it certainly isn\u2019t worth $249. It does offer all the features of a standard phone in a compact package, but you can get a similar (though admittedly larger) phone for much less. It actually does have protection plans available; you can get a two-year plan for $69.99 or by-the-month coverage at $3.49 per month. Unless you keep a very good track of your things, we would probably suggest the monthly plan.\r\nPalm Phone PVG100 Wrap Up\r\nOverall, the Palm Phone PVG100 is an interesting concept, but it\u2019s not something we can justify paying full price for. If you can find it on sale then it may be worth the price, but for most people, this device simply won\u2019t cut it. Of course, if you just want a phone that stands out in a crowd, then the PVG100 is the phone for you!
