Smartphone owners demand bigger screens

Four inches or more preferred

Application security programs and practises

If you're one of those folks who favour smartphones with supersize screens, you're not alone. Nearly 90 per cent of your fellow phone owners want handsets to have bigger displays.

So reveals market watcher Strategy Analytics after polling punters earlier this year. The favoured screen sizes range from 4.0 to 4.5 inches, it said.

“Almost 90 per cent of existing smartphone owners surveyed chose a prototype smartphone with a display larger than their current device,” said SA's Paul Brown.

There's a catch: folk are only willing to put with with bigger sizes if the handsets are thin and the weight remains low.

Men are - you'd never guess - more likely to be keen on extended-size devices than women, especially if they're Android fans.

Blokes, of course, have bigger hands and are more likely to be after a better gaming experience and to watch video - both key usages that are driving demand for larger screens, SA said.

More folk are viewing webpages on the move too, and that is also steering punters toward devices with larger displays. ®
