Why is Samsung making such huge phones?

Recommended Posts

Maybe the back button could be where the index finger can go, on the back, maybe?

would be really cool if they did that, but apple would get all the attention for 'trying something new' when LG already did it

 

also, the leaked dummy models didnt have that, and they looked pretty legit imo

As a Xperia Z user, 5 inches is a tad too big for me. I think 4.7 inches is ideal for me, personally.

 

7 inch (and around that size) would mostly be used as a secondary thing for me, something to keep around the computer, in the car or whatnot. Where a 10 inch tablet would be too big. If you're able to use a sim card with both (and they are tied with your current phoneplan), then I don't see why you couldn't have them around. Though, mainly used as something to browse websites and view videos on.

Yeah, I kinda want to say the same thing in the OP with LG. Their phones got really huge, especially the G Flex at 6 inches.

It isn't really massive for 5 inches. It just wants to follow suit with this trend.

I was just today browsing an ad magazine of a local electronics store and the Samsung Galaxy phone and tablet lines' ads take PAGES there. That is on top of pages of Samsung TVs and other crap they spew out in every possible form, color and feature set. Options are nice but I feel that Samsung is going way overboard with their products.

Exactly. They just want to show their crap off.

Please tell me how every company should cater to your needs, also don't consider that there's people with different tastes than you.

Seriously I've seen way too many threads about people whining about big phones, does anyone force you to buy them? No then why do you care if that model exists?


Hey there. You are looking mighty fine today, have my virtual cookie!  :ph34r:

You mean disagree. He was talking about how small screens make typing and other finger things on a phone awkward.

No I meant agree you lunatic :P

They are experimenting. They want to know what is the upper limit. They have enough money to create whatever phone they want as long as it still looks like S3.

Fact is that Samsung is making millions off these phones. If making a large phone is dumb, then they wouldn't be a successful company. Majority of the people now are going with bigger screens, many were reluctant at first, but now having a 5'' screen is the norm. If you don't want a big phone, buy a smaller phone, don't question why Samsung is making larger phones. They sell, it's as simple as that.

Yeah, I seriously don't get why Asians like big phones. It just takes up space in your pocket.

Yeah. 7 inches on a phone is just plain overkill.

My Nexus 7 (2013) is that size!

 

It does fit in my pocket but as a phone that's a nono.

It's funny. A couple of years ago, we were trying to make phones more compact. Now we are making them big again. 7 inches is absolute overkill for a phone.

Yeah, I guess Apple is one of those companies who is still trying to keep their phones small, unlike Samsung here.....
