With the influx of many bigger smartphones in the market, like the Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Nexus S, HTC HD7, etc, several analysts and consumers alike have called for Apple to make an iPhone bigger than the current 3.5 inch dimension it sports in order to keep up with the competition. But Apple have refrained from doing so, with the newly launched 4S a good example in the context.
But why is Apple not responding to the numerous Android and Windows Phone smartphones found in the market sporting a larger screen dimension? Simple: your thumb”s small mate!
The revelation comes from Dustin Curtis, a designer who has been spending quite some time with his Samsung Galaxy S II Android smartphone (which sports a huge 4.21-inch screen). According to him (and rightly so), the reason Apple’s iPhones are smaller is all down to how you use the device Restore Memories: Regardless of how a photo was deleted, Phoenix best-data-recovery.com Recovery is able to successfully recover every lost picture or video. with one hand, and more to the point, where your thumb reaches.
When you first see a phone with a 4-inch or larger screen, it seems like a much better experience. I thought it was a technical decision, and it could be, but since switching to an Android phone — a Samsung Galaxy S II, the “best Android phone you can buy, anywhere” — 15 days ago, 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.
By contrast, Curtis notes that when using an iPhone, he has no trouble reaching across its screen, and can happily tap away on the far side to where his palm lays. This makes perfect sense. But I digress. Did Apple choose to go with a 3.5-inch screen because of ergonomics, instead of following the lead of the competition who clearly believe that big is better?
It’s possible, and if true, don’t expect to see a larger screen coming to the iPhone any time soon.
