This iPhone size is perfect for you


The iPhone 14’s 6.1-inch screen is large enough.

A lot of people are excited about the anticipated iPhone 14 Max, a larger-screened version of the ordinary iPhone 14, which would give users the option to go big without upgrading to a Pro model. However, this is not the model I’m looking for.

In this case, it’s either the basic iPhone 14 or the 6.12-inch iPhone 14 Pro.


As a result, I’ve determined that a smartphone screen size of 6.1 inches or larger is optimal. Allow me to explain what I mean.

Bigger was always better.

As a young person, I had a beautiful iPhone 4s that felt like a miraculous little computer. Because of a bulging battery, I can’t recall how I managed to accomplish anything on a 3.5-inch screen.

To be fair, every top-end flagship phone I’ve tested in the last several years has had a massive screen. I’ve recently used the Google Pixel 6 Pro, Oppo Find X5 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, all of which had large displays of 6.7 and 6.8 inches respectively. That’s not even taking into account the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3’s folding display.


For my part, I’ve always been a fan of big-screen phones, as they allow me to get things done while on the go, watch videos and play games.

Nonetheless, I’ve come to believe that there is no actual necessity for phones to have screens larger than 6.2 inches in size.

With the release of the Google Pixel 5 in 2020, a shift in the company’s technological focus occurred.


Pocketable phones that can withstand a pandemic.

A few weeks ago, I had already gushed about how much I adored Google’s Pixel 5, but my regular phone testing schedule dragged me away from it. However, it had a long-term impact.

That was due in part to the Pixel 5’s beauty, but it was also due to the coronavirus restrictions that went into effect in 2020 and will continue through 2021.


As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, I was forced to walk a lot in order to get out of my small flat. So I needed a phone that was small enough to fit in my pocket but large enough to allow me to check Slack, Gmail, and other services without having to take my phone out of my pocket. As a result, the Pixel 5 has been a welcome addition to my nomadic lifestyle.

After a few days of adjusting to a smaller-than-usual screen, I’ve come to the conclusion that 6 inches is more than enough (please, no more sniggering at the back), thanks to the widespread adoption of smartphones with increasingly thin bezels. It became clear when I switched to the Samsung Galaxy S21, which has a 6.2-inch display with minimal bezels yet was still workable in one hand.

I’m now using the iPhone 13 Pro, which I believe is the best phone on the market. Because of the flat sides and 6.1-inch Retina display, the phone is easy to use with one hand, and the lack of rounded corners ensures it won’t fly out of my hands during a flurry of taps (at least for me).


The 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max, on the other hand, looks like an enormous slab of metal and glass that some of my coworkers use. There is no doubt that this is one of the nicest phones in existence, but I can’t help thinking that the flat design looks clumsy on a phone this large; I don’t expect the reported design of any of the 14 Max or Pro Max to change that either. The iPhone 14 Pro series, on the other hand, is rumoured to have a bigger camera.

Even though the iPhone 13 Pro is arguably my new favourite phone, the fact that you don’t make any substantial concessions when you switch from iPhone 13 Pro Max to iPhone 13 Pro is further evidence that the iPhone 13 Pro is my new favourite phone.

If Apple can do it, why can’t the rest of the phone industry? (yes I know there were differences between the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max). I’d want to see more high-end phones that fit into the “medium” category, but without sacrificing camera or storage capabilities.


When it comes to the Pixel 7, I’d prefer to see two screen sizes, rather than having to buy the larger Pro model if I wanted an extra camera or 120Hz display. And while it might result in an overkill of choice, perhaps the Galaxy S23 range could offer an Ultra model with both large and medium screen options.

Many individuals, I’m sure, would be interested in that. While the iPhone 13 mini may be a bit of a sales dud, I’ve seen a lot more people with 13 Pros than 13 Pro Max-es.

With that in mind, I can see myself opting for the iPhone 14 Pro over either Max model. But on a larger scale, I think it’s time for phone makers to accept the idea that a flagship phone doesn’t necessarily need a gigantic screen. Moreover, a 6.1-inch screen could be precisely the right size.
