This is just too effing rich… for years Apple maintained cell phones larger than 3.5″ were too big, and weak justifications about needing a small screen for one hand use were immortalized by their fans. Until the iPhone 5 grew to 4″ – then single hand use became a diminished value. Not for any statistical reasons, but, you know… because Apple.
Except now the iPhone 6 is here with 4.7″ and 5.5″ screens. Hopefully Obamacare covers fanboy whiplash, because they’re gonna dramatically reverse positions with all that crap about single-hand use.
But there’s more.
Remember the criticism of Samsung for building Galaxy phones that had a cheap plastic feel, and couldn’t compare with the iPhone’s solid metal design? Well it’s become apparent that the iPhone 6 is getting bent after riding in a pants pocket. Physically BENT, as in broken and cannot be used anymore.
So now I’m coming across articles saying you should never put your cell phone in a pants pocket – only a crazy person would expect to treat a $700 device that badly! Never mind that no other cell phone manufacturers have this problem… it’s because of stupid users!
Ha! Maybe Apple should study the Galaxy’s plastic look-and-feel to learn how build a beautiful, thin, powerful cell phone that can withstand the mortal rigors of riding in a pocket.
