I read design report #5 today. I have to say I was disappointed with the screen-size change. A 5" inch phone was already big enough as I prefer a 4" to 4.7" inch screen; the ease of handling with one hand for one handed use to ease of carrying as it can easily fit in your pocket. Not to mention if you were ever able to get a case for it, it would still be very manageable to use. Now move to a 5.5 " to 5.7". That’s not something I ever wanted. I want to support this project of course. I think having a Linux phone would be awesome. However I am now contemplating donating my already purchased phone to Plasma Mobile or UBports as I never wanted a phablet.
What i find interesting is that many people also think 5.5" screens are too big from a poll taken on Phone Arena.
Does anyone else feel this way? Would anyone rather have a smaller phone size?
There is always the hope that future iterations of this phone will offer a smaller model. After all this is the first generation. With it’s success we may get a smaller screen option with later generations. Any thoughts?
