Do you remember when there was a race to create the smallest phone? Yes before phones were used much to connect to the internet and screen size wasn’t an issue, they were getting smaller and smaller to the extent that my chubby fingers struggled to operate most of them.
These days it’s gone into reverse and you now have the creation of the phablet – a crossover between the phone and the tablet. However these are too big for every day phone use.
The iphone 5 is much smaller than a phablet but is an ideal size for everyday phone use. The wonderful thing about iPhone5 dimensions is that it’s screen takes up most of it’s dimensions leaving a screen size of 4 inches diameter that has excellent touch screen navigation, so viewing anything on the internet is a good experience but it can still slip easily into a pocket.
