Apple is notoriously slow for implementing drastic design changes. Case in point is the iPhone 5, 5C and 5S that only grew the screen to a 4 inch display leaving behind the 3.5 inch screen Steve Jobs hailed as the only true Smartphone screen size that made sense. I get that, the idea is to sell the crap out of your tablets and leave the Smartphone fitting nicely in one hand for operation and comfortably fitting in your pocket. The market however doesn’t care and it has demanded larger screen devices. Android and Windows Phone all have 5 inch plus screen sand Phablets. Apple reacted last year by extending the length of their screen .5 inches to make it a 4 inch screen and leave the width exactly the same. It helped…some.
So it’s a new year, Apple, you introduced two devices at the same time to suit two markets, a high end 5S and a cost conscious 5C. Now it is a new year and that simply won’t work. We want more screen size. I applaud the processor improvements even though most people never had a problem with the last processor and won’t notice the speed and coolness of the new one. A new A8 processor? Pretty neat. I won’t see a difference and I am better most other people won’t either. Candy Crush will still flash lights and make the same annoying beeping noises. We want a bigger screen damn it! It’s time already Timmy! All the other kids have a bigger screen why can’t we? I want to be one of the cool kids with a large screen Smartphone too!
Same rant, different day. Another concept video to rub the salt in. This one is a 4.7 inch screen which makes total sense. I’m not really a fan of the 5.5 inch Phablet screen size but would buy that if that was the only thing offered over the current 4 inch screen size. Check out the video so that I have done my part to spread rumors and propaganda for Apple on a possible new screen size. I think I am going to go sulk and eat a huge cheeseburger and fries for lunch and listen for my arteries harden.
