If there’s one thing all prominent Android phones have in common (besides their OS, of course), it’s that they’re big. But Jelly, a new Kickstarter phone that makes the original iPhone’s 3.5-inch screen look monstrous, has me re-thinking my unconditional love of the Galaxy S8+.
As Android has evolved to make the most of all those extra pixels, plus-sized phones have actually outsold their smaller counterparts. More and more people are using their phones for the work they once turned to tablets for, and if you were to chart it, you’d see a pretty close correlation between the rise of phablets and the fall of tablets. But along the way we’ve lost something: comfort.
