Do we really need big smartphones?
Technology and miniaturization are so advanced today that the manufacturer, although increasing the power or capacity of the battery and improving the camera, does not need to increase the size of the phone itself. This is confirmed by a company. Why, however, many manufacturers still increase the size of their smartphones? It has been proven that there are limits to ergonomics, and beyond, the phone simply is no longer convenient and practical.
The smartphone is still a mobile device and by definition, it must be compact, small and convenient. Functionality and convenience must remain a top priority for consumers.
Meanwhile, more and more often, the best specification of the best smartphone models is indissolubly linked to the worsened comfort of use, driven by large display sizes and protective quays.
Considering these prerequisites, the company is still developing the thinnest devices that technology implies. Some phones are no bigger than their predecessors. It was even possible for designers to reduce their width by more than 1.5 millimeters while maintaining a 7 mm thinness.
Such a slim phone not only looks attractive but also practical. It fits in any pocket, does not bother the user while walking and stands well in the hand. Thanks to the 5.1-inch diagonal, it’s much easier to access the menu items at the top of the display. The convenience is also enhanced by the almost complete elimination of the side frames.
Practicality is not only a result of the size but also of an appropriate, well-thought design of the device. The reasonable size of the display plays an important, albeit not, role. Some mobile phones Fingerprint Sensor is located at the front. This means it is always at hand, even when the phone is lying on a table or placed on a stand in a car. It is also essential that fingerprint reader speeds, where P10 is not equal. Unlocking the P10 with the reader is even faster than the standard slide on the display. The fingerprint reader can also replace the display buttons. With this option, the user gets, even more, space on the screen for the content displayed. The quality of the reader is unmatched in Huawei’s devices.
To accelerate and facilitate the operation of the phone, even more, P10Huawei introduced special touch gesture controls for knocking finger fingers on the screen. In this way, the user can start split-screen mode by drawing the line with the knuckle. By tapping twice, we can print a screenshot of the desired image on the screen, while pressing with two knuckles on the fingers starts recording the image. The most commonly used applications can be managed by symbols drawn with the knuckle on the screen.
Another convenient solution is the SwiftKey on-screen keyboard. The user can change the button type, divide it into 2 parts, make it smaller, or move it to one side of the smartphone. He or she has full freedom and will be able to write even longer texts much more conveniently, regardless of the size of the hand and the length of the finger.
The designers of the Huawei P10, despite its unique slim construction and the dual Leica camera, have also managed to avoid protruding lenses.
We also need to remember that the smartphone must have an adequate battery that provides enough time to work, even at a high load. The Huawei P10 has a 3200 mAh battery. Keeping the thickness of only 7 mm. And the diagonal screen size of 5.1 inches, this capacity is an incredible result. P10 allows 12 hours browsing the Internet or continuous viewing of movies. In short, the smartphone will spend the longest day without charging.
In summary, consumers do not need bigger smartphones in general, but they need better design. We need devices that are thin and easy to use. The smartphone we carry with you at all times must be properly designed and its software must contain features and gesture management capabilities that make it easy to use applications and services.
