Six to four

by Volker Weber

6 by 4

After just a few weeks on the Lumia 1520 I am struggling to get back on a smaller screen. The thing is, once you have a large screen like this, smaller devices feel very constrained. And then you need to use a phone and a tablet. With the bigger screen, you only need one. I believe that Apple needs to keep the 4" iPhone form factor, but add a 6" model. It would fit right between the iPhone and the iPad Mini.

The times they are a-changin'

Great picture, thanks.
I can understand the charms of a 6'' display, however the crucial question for me as a consumer without access to several devices at a time would be: If you had to choose just one phone, would you go for the 6'' or rather a 4''/4.5''/5''? In other words: Do you actually use the 1520 as your primary phone or rather as a very portable tablet in addition to a smaller phone like the iPhone or the 1020?

i would currently go for the 6" device. Especially if you can only have one.

Kann man im Windows Phone Store mehrere Telefone mit einem Account verwalten? Bisher hatte ich immer nur eins....

Max Nierbauer, 2013-12-04

Ja, man kann. Rechts oben ist eine Auswahlbox.

I'm afraid I must be living in a different universe - a 6" phone sounds horrible to me.

I know it's a little too small, but I like this phone: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Xperia#Xperia_X10_mini_.28pro.29

I really don't like the current trend to ever larger phones...

Gefahr zulaufen eine doofe Frage zu stellen: Was ist das für ein Bumper vom iPhone 5S? Danke :)

Max Könnings, 2013-12-09

Das ist kein Bumper, sondern das Apple Case für das iPhone. Leder, 39 Euro.
