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.

Maybe you are lucky, but I think most people will have had a situation where they have wanted something and if they've got it, it's not lived up to their expectations for one reason or another.

That is all I was saying.

You were also generalizing based on your personal PoV.

No I wasn't. I specifically wasn't. I made my point and then gave my perspective.

People think they want a larger screen. Once real world usability (store-ability, handle-ability) of the form factor comes out the reality of whether they want it or not will be apparent.


See? I didn't state they would find it one way or the other. I said that you could only say what was stated in the article with truth, after the items had been bought and used.

It appears that kneejerk downvotes are still the norm here.
