I've heard good things about the Ace 2x. And you can't go wrong with the Nexus4 (although I have a feeling you might find it a little big), but it is a great phone you might want to try getting used to the size for.

What do You define as normal sized?

Note that even sometimes the most reliable phone has software or hardware issues. Sometimes it's just the luck of the draw.

The Nexus 4 if your looking for something from Koodo. If you want the best phone in my opinion for a smaller sized Android device in general then I would highly recommend the Motorola Moto X, the display is 4.7" but the actual size of the phone is about the same size as the iPhone 5. The moto X is quite a bit pricier than the Nexus 4 but the size is much smaller overall even though they have the same sized display.
I wouldnt recommend getting any low priced Android phones with the exception of the Nexus 4 or soon to be released Nexus 5, you can run into issues with the lower priced Android devices due to their lower specs.

The S4 mini would be a good choice if you're looking for good hardware in a smaller package.

The nexus 4 has no sd slot though.

For 16Gb, you don't really need an SD slot :P.

Another vote for the N4 from me. If it's too big, I'd recommend the Galaxy S4 Mini. I don't recommend the Ace 2X, or any other Android phone with less than 1 GB of RAM.

Definitely agree about the ram. My Nexus S has 350 mb of ram and at least 250 is always in use, leaving me about 100 mb to spare, causing my phone to be slow at times, depending on what I'm running.

Yeah the Nexus S is painfully slow and IMO they should have left it on ICS, when it went to JB I couldn't take it & had to upgrade. So glad the Nexus 4 has really turned things around and set up the Nexus 5 to be something awesome.
