[Discussion] [Mi Bunny Asks #23] Do You Prefer Using Smaller Display Phones?

Hello Mi Fans,

Here we meet again after a brief vacation!


We live in a world of big phones. That started off a little rough, with "phablet" being tossed around quite a bit, but eventually the change took hold in the mobile market and now the big phone is just the normal phone. In fact, now when we hear about a phone that has a screen that will measure around 4.9 inches, that seems almost too small.

Now, I don't know about you, but I recently had the pleasure of switching from a large phone to a smaller phone. I went from my 6.5-inch display to 4-inch screen and it's a drastic change. I've been accustomed to using the bigger variants of smartphones for quite some time now, so going with a smaller option was striking. And yet, at the same time, I can't argue with the fact that, more often than not, it feels a lot better in the hand. Especially for one-handed use.

It's probably just muscle memory at this point, missing a thing that I'm used to, but I can't help but think I'm not going to be able to start actually preferring smaller phones.

Do you prefer phones with smaller displays? Or do you always go for the larger model when given the opportunity? Let me know where you stand!

In the beginning absolutely. The bulkier the phone the harder it is to hold and maintain control over. But then 2016 happened and we were introduced to the world's first Full Screen design. And ever since then there's really be only two camps. People with a non-Xiaomi full screen phone and people with a Mi Full Screen Phone. And the reason I say that is because the non-Xiaomi phones don't really have palm rejection so even if they do have a fairly full screen design (also so far only done for a few Chinese brands) they are very easy to mishandle thanks to false presses. Users of Samsung's phones and the iPhone X series have complained about this all the time. Meanwhile with MIUI we do have very good very sensitive palm rejection so you could literally have the thumb portion of your palm pressing on the screen and still use it just fine.

Once palm rejection is handled properly a full screen large size device is just as easy to handle as a smaller device making it much more preferrable over it and its smaller screen.

Hola amigo :-). You are right, mostly, at least. Small screens are easier for one handed use, and/or doing the usual stuff like web surfing or reading mails. Foe those doing spreadsheets while on the go, or design presentations, it's, sadly, rather the opposite. That's why I am having two Xiaomi phones :-)

I forgot to say "For me, personally......"
For others, bigger might be better!✌️
