Why are big phones better?
The trend for bigger phones started with the introduction of Samsung's Galaxy Note-1 with a 5.3 inch screen, released at the Berlin IFA Show in 2011. Most cell phone pundits and Gurus made fun of the Galaxy Note-1 and said people will never use such a big phone for various reasons like "they will look silly talking to such a huge phone" and "No pockets can fit such a big phone", "a phone meant for elephants!", etc. But they were all proven wrong
The Samsung Note phones went on to become a best seller and all other phone manufacturers copied the Samsung Galaxy Note phones by making bigger phones. Now the 5.3 inch Samsung Note of 2011 is a small phone compared to 2020 big phones having screens nearer to 7 inches.
So why do people love phones with big screens. The reason is obvious, because you can see bigger pictures and read easier with bigger fonts. Typing is easier with less chance of making mistakes, because the buttons are bigger and there is space between the buttons. The biggest problem with big phones is trying to operate a big phone with one hand. But mobile phone manufacturers have devised ingenious ways to operate big phone with one hand, like for example moving the App icons to the right half or left half depending on which hand you are using.
Why are mobile phones getting bigger?
We list below some of the reasons why people love bigger phones.

- Bigger buttons and wider space between buttons make typing easier and less prone to mistakes.
- Big phones have bigger batteries to make the phone last longer between charges
- The speakers in big phones are bigger and they are louder and sound much better
- Watching videos on big screen phones with loud and clear sound is a pleasure
- Playing games on bigger phone screens is much better
- Reading e-Books on a big phone screen is much better than trying to read on a smaller screen
- Possible to have two or more windows open for simultaneous viewing on a large phone screen
- Even though one hand operation on big phones is difficult, new phone software makes using large screen phones with one hand easy - for example having all the App buttons align on the right half or left half depending on which hand you are using.
