PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over the years, one thing has been very hard to grasp for some people: the fact that people want smartphones with 4.0"+ screens. These 'some people' seem to believe that because Apple chose a 3.5" display, any display size that isn't 3.5" is wrong. Keep that in mind when you read Samsung's latest little communiqué: the Korean giant has sold (not shipped, sold) more than 5 million Galaxy Notes. Which has a 5.3" screen.

What? I didn't mention Apple users once. I talked about some tech bloggers.


Yay, it was a painful process, but finally we get there. So your beef is with some tech bloggers that are enamoured with all things Apple. So write it that way. You don't like those guys, that much is clear, but your article was written like this is somehow the position of Apple, or a large number of their users.. It isn't..

By the way, if you actually read the articles you linked to, like this one (http://daringfireball.net/2012/01/why_are_android_phones_bigger) , it's not even that out there.. Larger screens because of DPI settings in Android which is true, and larger phones because of LTE chips which Anandtech claims need more space than could be found in a 3.5" phone. Doesn't sound like the ravings of a fanboy. And look what else they wrote: "I know there are people who really do prefer these bigger 4.5-inch displays"
Wow. It's like they really do understand that people like different things. It's not like it's a war at all, and Thom is the only one trying to stir up trouble.. Funny that.
