In a year or two I'll probably have to replace my phone. And I'm dreading the fact that a "phone" today is a 6-inch slab, which I definitely don't want. Wouldn't it be nice if any company still made normal sized devices which I could carry in a pocket and use with one hand…
(Just ranting here, move along.)
@isagalaev Not sure about your phone, but #iOS has 'reachability' with makes this fine, see https://9to5mac.com/2014/09/09/a-look-at-apples-reachability-one-hand-mode-for-larger-iphone-6-video
@MatejLach I have an Android phone.
But software notwithstanding, 6 inches is way to big for any of my pockets. I still think the best size was just over 4.
@isagalaev I made a typo, it's 5.8" not 6.8" and fits into what is essentially the 4.7" iPhone body.
@MatejLach ah... that's interesting. I haven't been paying attention to the Apple side of things for a while admittedly.
@isagalaev Honestly, the smaller variants are just fine one hand since going edge-to-edge with the iPhone X.
I have an iPhone right now, because they seem a lot better on privacy than Google does, but they're still an amoral corp, so am waiting for the #librem5 to ship and ditch the iPhone actually.
Unfortunately, the Librem is 5.7", but not edge to edge, so might end up somewhat of a phablet.
