Over the last few years we have observed a clear shift in the direction of increasing diagonal smartphones. All flagships from Apple and Samsung, Motorola and other companies began to produce large vehicles. Back in 2011, the publication revealed that iPhone users would not mind increasing the diagonal. And in the summer of 2014, Apple went on about the market and presented large vehicles. Then the company got the taste and released an incredibly large – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It’s just that everything is not quite right. Like it or not, but high sales may not reflect the desires of all users. Some of them with obvious irritation we look at the big machines or just being sarcastic on this topic. Show new phablet to your mom, she will be shocked by its size. Or put a joke in the style of: “You call this thing a phone?” And it will be right. Such users cannot be called anachronistic who find it difficult to grasp the new trends. Because some phablets are so large that they are impossible to use with one hand. And even modern smartphones average diagonal look foolish in the small hands of some people.
That’s why Apple and wants to go back to 4 inches in the new iPhone 6c (or whatever it will be called?). Despite the apparent failure of the iPhone 5c and already erased the line between tablets and phones, there are still people who don’t like the size of today’s smartphones. Even if 60% of users rejoice in the great screens, the remaining 40% will be strongly dissatisfied. So, if the rumors are confirmed, a lot of people will say Apple thank you for the opportunity to save time which is usually spent on interaction with uncomfortable and large gadgets.
