Apple

Since my contract renewal was up, I had the option to renew it and buy a new phone alongside with it. Since I have an unofficial policy of never buying into the same platform twice in a row, and because it has been a long time since I bought something from Cupertino, I decided to go with the newest iPhone, the 5S. I'm planning on a more thorough review sometime later this year after more thorough use, but here are a few short first impressions.

My phone is a 4.3'' low end android, about the same size as the Galaxy S 2. So really small for android standards, but it is still to big for my small hands. Using it with one hand isn't comfortable. The iphone is just the right size and making the screen longer instead of wider in the iphone 5 also was the right decision.

Of course if your hands are bigger it might be different for you, but I think nearly nobody has hands which are big enough to comfortably use those +4.5'' phones with one hand.

PS: of course the bigger screen is nice if you are using it with two hands, but you could also use a real tablet instead.

PPS: I still think Apple should offer more sizes
