Big-Ass Phones Need To Die In A Fire

Considering the success of larger phones, this seems like nothing more than a pointless rantآ—and then there’s the fact that nobody is forcing you to buy a larger phone if you can’t deal with one. But I’ll askآ…how big is too big?

آ…we keep buying bigger ones year after year. This is all our fault. There are some improvements like slimmer bezels and thinner designs that make big phones more tolerable and easier to use, but they're still stupidly oversized phones. I use an iPhone 6 with a "reasonable" 4.7-inch screen. If I had it my way, I would buy an iPhone SE, but it's not good enough for me because it tops out at 64GB of storage and I need (yes, need) at least 128GB. My personal phone choice will never be a phablet. Like everyone else, though, I've learned to accept the phablet. The 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge is one excellent phone. So is the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 5. And so is the 5.7-inch Nexus 6P. Phablets will be among us forever.
