The iPhone’s display is still 3.5 inches while other varieties of smartphones are increasing their screen size with each new model. This got designer Dustin Curtis thinking…
I’ve been wondering why Apple chose to make the iPhone 4′s screen 3.5-inches when other comparable phones with Android and Windows Phone 7 have larger, more inviting screens. When you first see a phone with a 4-inch or larger screen, it seems like a much better experience.…
[B]ut since switching to an Android phone… I have realized another huge downside of larger screens: when holding the phone with one hand, I can’t reach the other side of the screen with my thumb.
So there you have it. Smartphone displays can’t get any bigger without ceasing to be user-friendly for the average person who wants to be able to walk down the street holding their coffee while also Googling themselves.
