Re: 18:9

What the consumer *knows* is the feel of their past and current phones in their hand and pocket, and they'll have seen and felt their friend's Galaxy Note (big) and their sister's iPhone SE (little). Some of them will even look at and handle a range of phones in a shop before buying!

Unlike TVs where, all else being equal, bigger is usually better, people have their own informed reasons for not necessarily buying the biggest phone available - they might have small hands, or they have a physical job, or they primarily use their phone for one-handed texting.
