Big phones, big purses.
The iPhone 5 was just announced with a longer screen which allows for one more row of apps on your home screen. But is this necessary? The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a 5 inch screen! Why do we need this much real estate for our thumbs and pointer fingers?
Girls purses are getting bigger
The fact is most smartphones are girl phones. No guy would be able to fit a phone this big in his front pocket. This means only the women with purses can carry these extra large devices. Men tend to not have a way to carry a phone besides a pants pocket or maybe a goofy looking belt clip… The men are having increased difficulty with finding ways to carry their phones especially with these new ones like the Galaxy S3 that have humongous screens. The women here have the advantage with their large purses. Therefore, smartphones are for girls. It’s that simple people.
Purse designers are in cahoots with smartphone makers. The designers make the purses bigger which makes finding a phone nearly impossible. This creates a market for larger smartphones. Everybody wins.
