Does anyone regret buying a big phone?
Pretty much anything with a 4.5+" screen seems to be hard to use with a single hand.
So does everyone just use them with both hands?
4.3" Desire HD was perfect.
4.7" Nexus 4 was a tiny bit too big.
5.7" Note 4 is great too because it has so many tools that make use of its size but also ones that make one handed use a breeze such as multi window, floating windows, screen shrinking, pinning the keyboard to one Side of the screen and a movable onscreen bar for the dedicated buttons.
I get you man, i used a few G3's and they were much easier to handle.
I might wait and see how the LG G4 turns out, might purchase it when the price hits the dirt in a couple of years.
4.3" is just about right
A slightly bigger screen would be nice but I can just hold the phone an inch closer to get the same overall effect of a bigger screen without it being harder to hold in the hand and bigger in the pocket
5.5" iPhone 6+ here, no regrets whatsoever. I feel bad for people who have to survive on 4" screens, when 5 is so much better when you get used to it. Only downside is the phone is somewhat slippery and I have dropped it probably 3 times since purchase
I've got the galaxy note 4. The screen is big as hell but I don't really have any issues with it. I would say I do use 2 hands more then one but when I drop down to 1 its still more then useable. Found out recently with these phones you can activate a 1 hand mode which makes the screen smaller. Never used it but it's there if you want it.
No, the only thing I regret is that there isn't a legitimate high end tablet that you can make phone calls on
My OnePlus is awesome, but it's still just a phone
I own a Note 4 so it's not really a problem for me because if and when I'm handling too many shit and can't properly use the screen there's an option to basically halve the screen with a single swipe so I do that. Not a problem at all and I enjoy the bigger screen very much, especially whilst watching movies and shit on QHD. I can't imagine life on an iPhone 4 or 5, shit is ridiculously small.
I use my Note 3 with both hands and usually the stylus.
But I prefer it that way, I'm not a phonaholic so I only use it when not doing other things.
What I don't like is how it feels in my trouser pocket.
It's really not an issue unless you're a hipster and wear those tiny jeans with tiny pockets or you're a manlet and wear weird jeans. The pockets are pretty much always big enough.
Ignore the trolls.
It is uncomfortable in regular pants/jeans when sitting down, cycling, whatever.
So unless you commute by segway it is an issue.
I usually put it in my jacket or shirt pocket.
I like my Note 2. Only thing I did to make it workable with one hand is install Pie Controls. I might go for a smaller phone like Sony's Compact series if I get a stylus for my convertible laptop because I don't see too many benefits of a big screen besides webpages, video viewing, and taking notes.
No, and even if I did, there is a neat feature on the note 4 to deal with it. It comes in handy at times. Saves battery too (e.g..in bed.)
Have a nexus 5, before had a galaxy nexus, the 5 is 5 inches and the galaxy is I think 4,7, would really prefer <5 screens to be more popular
[spoiler] Not that big hands to use 5+ inches comfortably [/spoiler]
That's simply untrue, my wallet is more noticeable, how are you wearing your pants/jeans, over your hips or something? Do you have really short thighs? What gives?
It's becasue my thigh muscle is round and the phone is flat.
So I get a pressure point in the middle of the phone while the corners press the other way against the fabric.
A slight curve would have fixed the issue.
My wallet is about the same size, but because it's soft it's not as uncomfortable.
If my legs were fat it wouldn't be a problem becasue fat is soft.
I suppose I wrongly assumed everybody has muscular legs, because I live in Amsterdam where everybody always cycles everywhere.
But I suppose when you have weak legs a big phone isn't a problem.
Anything above 4" isn't a phone, but useless garbage and you're better off with a tablet, which is also useless garbage and you'd be better off with a mini Thinkpad then.
>watching movies on a phone
I kek internally everytime I see this, reminds me of pic related
>i'm not fat guise i swear it's all muscle
>you don't believe me? I live in amsterdam so everybody cycles everywhere (me too get it?)
>you gotta believe me guise I swear it y-you're all weak and fat
lel stay fat
>not watching porn on the go or every time you go to the bathroom
It's like you want to be sexually repressed
Also it depends on what you do on your phone and how often you use it. If you don't use it much, just get a tiny 4" phone. Otherwise enjoy superior screen size with QHD and high PPI with extensive tone/contrast control.
lol, I can overhead press 275 pounds and dunk a basketball, my legs more than likely make yours look like twigs, you just wear skinnier jeans/pants if your phone is uncomfortable
I imagine it's a difference in cut of regular jeans/pants in Amsterdam vs. Dallas
It was mean of that guy to call you a fatty though, I understand why you got defensive
I have a BlackBerry Passport (fuck off, don't need commentary) and it's 4.5" 1:1 (it's a big phone). It fits in my pants fine, and is okay to use one hands unless you need to type more than a few words, but I just find it clumsy and awkward. The big screen is nice, but not really worth it.
Again: Fatmericans won't have this problem because of all the blubber distributing the load.
Hard straight phone against hard curved muscle is always uncomfortable, even in loose clothing.
Honestly I don't know what BB execs were smoking when they greenlighted the Passport. It's even worse than not having a qwerty at all. Phone costs a shitton and yet its retarded design isn't good for any use at all.
Why did you buy an OPO, you do realize there's literally a backdoor in the firmware right? And you have impractical SD limitations, on low quality specs. Was it because it was cheap? It's how they get you into the botnet.
There was a PDF report of Chinese rootkits on OPO phones as well but I can't find a link because it was on a cryptic hacking forum nobody's heard of. Expect the news to surface soon though. Anyway, enjoy your Chinese botnet Xiaomi/ZTE/Huawei fags.:
Dude nice. How's the battery life on that thing? Does it live up to expectations?
Nah even 5.5 is too small for me now. It's going to be really hard finding a 6"~ phone with front facing stereo speakers in the future.
Goddamn fucking normies shitting up the boards with their irrelevant and meaningless complacency. Nobody gives a shit if you can squat your whale mother or if you have muscular thighs or whatever the fuck you're on about. OUT
My first smartphone was the Galaxy Note N7000 and it was a beast, my only regret resides in the fact that it was a samshit device. By now i'll get on with another brand.
The phone itself broke and Samsung took 5 months and 2 lawyers to get it fixed for me. I sold it right after.
5" is the ideal size.
I got the nexus 6 and the only thing I regret is the fact that I was born.... With small hands. I love the phone and the screen size but I'm going to have to jump to another phone soon because while trying my best to use it with 1 hand I nearly drop it every time. Thinking of going to s6 or s6 edge
I thought it might be awkward with a note 3 but I really wanted the stylus, so I bit the bullet, and after a while you just end up holding it differently, instead of the corner hold you hold it from the side
>some shit happens and the note screen goes full rearded all green and glitched
>ok i'll take it to samsung
>"we can't fix it you broke it you gotta pay 300$ for the fix"
>"fuck off" and get my device back
>now it has a crack on the screen and some oil or shit coming out of it
>they don't give a fuck
>recur to the law to try to get a new device or this one fixed
>meeting at consumer defense organ here with an samsung attorney, guy from the organ says they gotta fix my device
>samsung says they wont
>5 days later they call saying they'll do it "for courtesy"
>ok whatever, hand them the device again
>they keep it for a month and whenever i call they say they didn't fixed it
>new meeting with samsung lawyer, this time a different lawyer shows up and knows nothing about the case
>say they won't fix it
>consumer defense organ obligates them to fix it
>also the device has been with them for 30+ days and once that happens they have no choice but give me a new one (according to the law)
>go get my device back even without any calls or shit
>it's been fixed
I sold it 1 week after for a quarter the price and brought a Moto G.
