It’s almost that time of year when a new Nexus device is set to be announced and the leaks are suddenly pouring in life a gushing river. Here’s the round up on the latest.
I don't know whether to be excited or not. On one hand, a 6 inch screen sounds terrible, it'll make for a HUGE phone and who knows how the battery's gonna fair, but on the other hand, it could be really cool! Maybe watching movies and playing games on the thing would be great.
No thanks! It's a pain typing on my 5.7 note 3 with 1 hand! If anything ama drop down in size on my next phone!
I'm typing this on my note with one hand and it's not a big deal. But I do normally type with both thumbs.
It would be nice to use it as a hand held gaming system on the go! As a phone? Not so much....
I think the screen size on my Moto G (4.5") is my limit, as even with this size screen it makes reaching with the thumb to the opposing corner a bit of a stretch (and it makes holding the phone slightly less secure when thumb-reaching like that). And forget about reaching across the screen when it is in the horizontal position. So I cannot imagine a 6" screen, seems like you pretty much have to use two hands no matter what. But damn... 4k resolution on something so small? WOW!!! If I calculated correctly, that equals a PPI (pixels per inch) of ~785 (if they use the real 4k resolution of 4096x2160). Which is quite amazing, and I bet that screen will look absolutely gorgeous!
Okay then, I was debating about waiting or not, I'll just get the 5. The huge phone thing is stupid. I never picked up my Kindle and thought "gee wouldn't it be great to carry this around as my phone?" Such a pain shopping for phones these days too. I don't need a friggin tablet, and yet every phone is pushing 4+ inches in size....
