Perhaps the 6-inch phone is the new ideal size

Big Bigger Biggest.. They want it big, and prefer it just that way.. What’s this thing with people and them carrying about a big slab or tablet? Is it a personal thing, or more of the Nigerian factor? It is common these days to see people lugging about a big Android device or tablet. Some even go as far as using it to take calls (in public) by placing it to their ears.

You see, when you start playing with Android devices, you begin to realize that the experience gets better with bigger screens. People graduated from 3.5 inch to 4 inch to 5 inch to 5.5 inch, and now gloat for 6 or 7 inch phones. Note though that the pattern/trend might change from person to person.

Even manufacturers have picked this up. You can no longer find good specc-ed phones within the 4 inch range- except maybe the Sony Xperia Z mini series. Infinix upgraded their Note series to the 6-inch Note 2. Even TECNO has their DriodPad phones at 7 inches. The question is: How big is too big? Ever since Infinix launched the Note 2, the few people I know using it have testified of their love for it.

Also following this trend, Xiaomi is rumored to launch a 6.4 inch phone. Would you mind using a phone that huge? Perhaps, the 6-inch phone is the new ideal screen size.
