As headline, why does new phones has to be 4+ inch?
I am the kind of user who sees the mobile phone as a MOBILE phone....
With that I mean a phone you can use with one hand, easy to stuff in even small pockets. Like the iPhone is. Well until the iPhone 5, but that is another discussion..
I feel like I am being PUSHED by all other phone makers to buy an iPhone, if I want a phone which isn’t bad and has a lot of the same features as the new phones, I HAVE to choose an iPhone. But I do not want an iPhone.
For ALL other makers, a small phone equals a cheap feature-less phone. I am not talking small as in a 3 inch but the 3.5 to 3.7 inch, which phones were some time ago. My dream phone would be a Nokia Lumia 800 with Windows Phone 8 and a front facing camera. Same size, same shape and perhaps a better display (hate that pentile, but another story). As Neowin has written in its rumors, the phone which will be replacing the 610 will be….. 4 inch?!?! I mean don’t they go lower than that?! And HTC with their new Windows Phone 8 devices is also 4 inch? I mean is it illegal to make a phone smaller than 4 inch now a day, or is it impossible to make phone so small anymore, because Apple has done a fine job with it? I would love to have a phone with Windows Phone 8, but I don’t want a bag size phone with that, so I am looking at an Android. Which I must choose because I do NOT want an iPhone, and I do not want a handbag. So I am stuck in a dilemma. Big phone and Windows Phone 8 (thinking ONLY 4 inch [HTC 8S]) or the right size phone and Android and less features, not that I don’t like android but I just want Windows Phone 8 so much more!
Please leave a comment with your thoughts and your perspective of this, but this is just my point of view, and don’t make it an Windows Phone vs. Android vs. iOS thing.. it’s not.. Really.. it’s not!
