I fought them and I lost
Like many here i thought larger phones (ugh, phablets) were daft.
Then along came the note 2 and i've not looked back since. When you adapt, you become used to it and smaller ones feel limited again. I can't even put my finger on why.
Work provide an iPhone S, which works wonderfully as a work device, but I just can't use the thing for recreational stuff, much prefer the slightly larger ones now.
