I have to carry two phones; one for G-stuff, which is often unreleased software running on unreleased hardware, and another for my personal life. For the last few months, the G-phone has been a Galaxy Nexus and the Tim-phone a Nexus S.
I noticed right from the start that I was always using the bigger one whenever there was a choice, and I assumed that was just Ice Cream Sandwich being so much nicer than Gingerbread. But now they’re both running the same software and I’m still using the GN for everything.
[Sorry, Google, yes I have texted my kid and looked up map destinations on the “company” phone that you’re paying for.]
Yeah, there are a few occasions where I have to wiggle the phone around in my hand to reach some part of the screen. But the huge display and the soft buttons just make the Nexus S feel dinky and stupid and clumsy.
Remember, “data” is not the plural of “anecdote”. But unless I’m weird, big-screen phones are going to be appealing to lots of people.
