I am aware that in terms of the phone and smartwatch manufacturers operators are by far their biggest accounts because of course you cannot access an operator's services without the hardware.
It does seem though that every phone is going for bigger and bigger screens and those of us that just want to stick with 5.2 inch are getting less and less choice.
So, are operators pushing for bigger screens or is this just something the manufacturers are doing because, let's face it, there's only so much innovation possible when a form factor is dictated by the screen.
Read your post and this is the reason I wanted a larger screen.
I seem to be using my phone more and more like a computer
researching anwering emails etc. I can sit down in the evening
and instead of sitting in front of my computer I use the phone.
The larger screen makes it easier ~ I like the larger screen ~
It is larger to carry around of course but this doesn't bother me.
I bought the Samsung Galaxy A70
I have a computer with
a 17" screen find that more useful too.
My thought is that "possibly" research has found a larger
screen when available is being bought?
I guess it's more market force and that networks have no influence. I would think that more and more people want larger screens now. Especially the older generation such as myself and the younger users who like to show off.
I'm sure the marketing staff do their research.
I'm at the stage now where I use a large screen for comfort. It suits my declining eyesight and larger keyboards help arthritic fingers avoid spelling mistakes.
At the other end of the age spectrum, my grandson age 20, also prefers phones with larger screens. There is nothing wrong with his eyesight and he can knock out a message in seconds.
His Uni friends all appear to prefer phones with large screens. Better for streaming and watching videos.
