Any recent android phones smaller than 5 inches for Verizon?

My phone (Moto X 1st Gen) is showing its age and needs to be replaced. I'm looking to buy a small (preferably 4.5'' or 4.7'') android phone. There are many GSM options, but I can't find a single CDMA phone released in the past 2-3 years that will work with Verizon.

I use my phone for 4 things:

- Calls

- Texting

- GPS

- Music

I don't want to carry around a giant 5.5'' screen just for the above. I also don't want to pay for an iPhone, for obvious reasons.

Why is there not at least one modern phone below 5'' that will work for Verizon? Is anyone aware of any small phones that I may have missed, or any that will be released soon? If not I'll have to switch to a GSM carrier just to have a small phone, which is ridiculous.

I loved the size of my Moto X 1st gen.  It was the perfect size.  I eventually got a Moto X 2nd gen and got comfortable using with its larger size.  Most recently I got a Pixel phone which was the smaller version at 5" screen.  When comparing the phones between the three phones, the Pixel is about the same width as the Moto X 1st gen maybe just slightly larger.  The height was closer to the Moto X 2nd gen for the Pixel phone.  So you might want to consider looking at the smaller Pixel phone for your replacement device.

Thanks for the comment, but in addition to being a little large for my tastes, the Pixel is out of my price range. If I wanted to pay for a high-end phone I'd probably go for the iPhone 7 (even though I prefer android), because the form factor is perfect--very small and thin.

There are a number of new and affordable 4.5'' GSM phones, like the Samsung Galaxy A3. I'd love to find something similar that works on Verizon, but I'm not having any luck.

The iPhone 7 is basically the same price as the Pixel.

Both are low end phones and not necessarily worth considering.

Have you looked at the Moto G model 4th or 5th generation? They are unlocked and work on the Verizon Wireless network.

Thank you both for the suggestions.

However, like I said, I'm looking for compact phones with a 4.7'' or 4.5'' screen. Preferably 4.5''. All of the phones that have been suggested have a 5'' screen.

Low-end is OK--all I need it to do is run Google Maps, play music, and work as a phone.

I suspect the answer to my question is that there are no compact android phones available for Verizon, but I'd like to make sure before I give up looking.

Android users tend to be "techies" and early adopters as far as the technology goes. They don't want smaller phones and so manufacturers aren't making them. They make the phones people want.

There are a large number of compact GSM phones available, such as the Sony Xperia X Compact and the Samsung Galaxy A3. Also budget phones like the Kata V4 and ZTE Maven. So the issue isn't that android manufacturers aren't making compact phones, it's that they're apparently not making compact CDMA phones for Verizon.
