If you’re looking at purchasing a smartphone, you’ll have many different options to consider. There are various platforms such as Android and Apple and the option to purchase a plan or buy outright. There is another criterion that you can add to your list of choices when buying smartphones and this relates to the size. With so many different brands to go with, you’re also bombarded with options on handsets. Today´s gadgets are decreasing in size as technology advances. When it comes to smartphone size, there is small, medium and large to choose from.
One of the models falling on the extreme end of the spectrum is the Infuse 4G from Samsung. It is the largest smartphone available on the market with it large bright 4.5 inch display. The Samsung weighs only 4.9 ounces which is slightly heavier than the Apple iPhone. Its large display makes its virtual keyboard easy to navigate and type.
With this phone, everything works pretty fast. It responds well to taps on the screen and if you want to open certain apps, they open up quickly. If you’re going to use the 4G, you’ll have a fine time with loading web pages fast and you can also do well with streaming videos. The phone has eight hours of talk time so you can be sure that you’ll always have enough battery for updating Facebook and checking emails. It is HDMI adapter friendly which makes it possible to watch videos on TV.
On the other end, the smallest smartphone in the market is the Veer 4G from HP. It’s a smaller model than the Pre. It comes with a 2.6 inch screen which you slide up to have access to a keyboard. However, the small phone has a few problems with using it with a handset. Compared to standard smartphones, this doesn’t come with a headphone jack. It might be because it’s just too big for the model. You can however, use the magnetic charging port for connecting your headphone adapter.
On the downside the phone has a maximum of five hour talk time, its lightweight design and small structure justifies it. If you need to type or use its virtual keyboard be prepared to experience cramped fingers. As for streaming videos and browsing the web, you might run into trouble with looking at its tiny screen. For the most part, the phone functions well whilst performing single tasks on the Veer such as checking email, researching on a restaurant.
So there you have it, the David and the Goliath of smartphones. Even with so much going for it, the Infuse could be too large for you. The Veer is just too small to be worth all the applications and features. When it comes to smartphone size, moderation still rules.
