|My feeling is that mobile phones are becoming way to large; being in effect used as mini laptops/tablets. |
I liked the earlier designs which were small, the battery lasted an age between charges.
The clam shell design worked well too, and having used one a few times when visiting friends, who have pne for use when travelling, I finf that design has much to applaud.
The screen is obviously well protected is one point inits favour. Although I would still keep one in an all enclosing case; much as I have my iPhone 5s.
Rather than encouraging larger phones, I'd prefer they design smaller, more compact via the folding/clam shell design; and also improve battery capacity and life. And ensure batteries can be replaced by the end user too, should said battery die...
