Indeed there is. I remember the time when I decided to sell my iPhone 3G for an iPhone 4S. The key factors that drove me to upgrade were the new features baked into the phone and not the phone itself per se. A year after, the tech giant released a taller iPhone with a bigger screen; thus cementing the idea that Apple has finally addressed the importance of having a bigger smartphone screen. But why is it so important that smartphones get a bigger display screen?
#1 A Bigger Canvass Is Everything
Apart from the usual calling and texting functions, smartphones also allow multimedia consumption and mobile Internet viewing. This is precisely why having a smartphone with such a small screen is quite pointless. With all the great features smartphones now have, not having a big canvass for users to have fun with would make any media junkie want to sell used iPhones. A big screen allows for better media viewing (because watching Two and a Half Men on a 3-inch rectangle is not very good for the eyes and the neck) as well as maximum productivity.
#2 A Bigger Display Is a Bookworm’s Dream
Not only is a bigger screen helpful for multimedia enthusiasts, it also gives bibliophiles a better reason to give their dog eared, hardbound novels a rest. EBook reading is much more enjoyable on a crisp and sharp screen that can display more content, just like an eBook reader. As an avid eBookworm, I can say that reading eBooks is bliss on a 5 to 7 inch smartphone (which Apple has with the iPad Mini though it’s not really a smartphone).
#3 A Bigger Screen Equals More Power
Another great thing about creating a big smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy Note II is that manufacturers are able to cram in bigger processors and more features. Because of their hand-breaking phones, Samsung was able to put in a quad core 1.6GHz processor that’s more than 20% faster and has two times more RAM than the iPhone 5! I wouldn’t mind selling my iPhone for that!
#4 A Bigger Smartphone Saves You Money
What makes smartphones ‘smart’ is the fact that they supersede the need to buy more gadgets with different functions. A bigger smartphone screen could make you abandon your tablet PC, your Kindle or Nook, your mp3 player and even your laptop. All you’ll ever need from a device is on your mobile phone and thus, you save money and space from using just one device!
