When I was younger my parents would always say, “Sit back from that TV!” I was reminded of this because after staring at my Fuze for too long I started getting a headache. I did a bit of research and it turns out that sitting too close to the TV was actually bad for me. To me, a screen is a screen and if you are too close to your phone’s screen you might want to consider holding it further away or simply getting reading glasses. I have had plenty of optometrist visits in my life, my eyes are pretty bad. Every time I change my optometrist one of the first things they ask is if I use the computer or watch TV and where I sit to view the screens. So if my optometrist is concerned, shouldn’t we all be? My way of resolving this viewing distance issue in my life would be to get a larger screen. That way I can hold it back further and get less headaches from prolonged use. So far, the largest screen size for the Windows Phones coming to ATT is 4” on the Focus. I am going for it, not just because it is my favorite out of all of them, but for health reasons too :)


  1. HD7 is 4.3″ but it’s TMo :)
    Focus and Dell are both AMOLED – maybe the super bright screens are better to prevent eye strain:)

  2. Yeah I would love to have the HD7 too bad im stuck with ATT… blah. and I was thinking about throwing in the fact that they are AMOLED screens and say that its better to have a clear vibrant screen than to have a dull and dark screen (even more eyestrain.. lol) but I held back because I had no research for that one haha.
