Best smallish phone with LCD screen?


I just bought a Turbo to replace my VERY old Droid (with a slide out keyboard. Yep.) The Turbo's fab SUPER AMOLED screen is giving me a SUPER headache, so I'm going to need to return/replace it with something else. The phone is also way too big for me to operate one-handed comfortably. (A necessity, if you're a mom like me.)

I am on Verizon, so a Verizon phone is preferred. I'm thinking LCD screen, in a smallish handheld size, but not ridiculously small. Any suggestions?? What's the best smallish, LCD screened phone out there right now? (Or do I need to make a hop over to *gulp* an iphone retina screen??) My next ask would be an ok camera-- doesn't need to be top of the top... but you know. Mom.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions!!

Have you tried adjusting the brightness of your DROID Turbo screen?

The 2013 Moto X is 4.5 inches and a good overall phone.


Thread starter
Yes-- tried it. The lowest brightness setting is still quite bright and contrasty comparatively speaking. It's hard to describe, but the whites on the Turbo are more of a yellowy (brighter) hue, while the whites of my old Droid were a gray hue, (much easier on the eyes.)

The Moto X was my first choice actually, (though Verizon doesn't carry it anymore-- I'd have to get it from Best Buy or Swappa or something), but now my concern is that it also has an AMOLED screen, so I'd likely have the same problem. :( I think I really need an LCD screen, in a small sized phone.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact comes to mind (4.6" LCD screen, high end specs generally), but I suspect you won't be able to get that with Verizon.
