Screen Size Getting Bigger
Here is everything you need to know about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus:
Perhaps what caught our attention most about the recent Apple announcement at Cupertino is its larger sized iPhone 6 Plus. For years, there have always been outcries from apple fans that existing iPhones have comparatively smaller screen sizes than Android. It is only natural for Apple to introduce the whole new larger iPhone 6 Plus: in doing so, Apple eliminated the key selling points of its big-screened Android competitors.
Apple has pretty much answered the objections from the market.
Other than addressing the market needs for bigger iPhone models, there are other reasons for bigger screen sizes too: it’s a classic conflict of aesthetics versus functionality for phones.
Don Norman, director of the Design Lab at the University of California at San Diego said, “Small phones were elegant. Remember, they were a reaction against the big old clunky bricks we started with. But then phones evolved. We don’t talk on them any longer. We use these devices for maps, restaurant reviews, and for texting our friends and listening to music. So the screen becomes very important, and small screens are miserable to use.”
So, would you be getting the bigger screened iPhone 6 Plus?
