We need to rethink what a “big” smartphone is

I’ve seen a lot of people complaining lately that the Galaxy S8 is too big. And if not the base model S8 then absolutely the Galaxy S8 Plus with its ludicrously large 6.2-inch screen. Compared to other devices we know in that space – like the Xiaomi Mi Mix and Nexus 6 – the Galaxy S8 Plus surely has to be a monster, right? Not really: it’s actually the same height as both those phones but significantly less wide.

I heard the same “too big” rumblings about the LG G6, although admittedly to a lesser degree. It’ll be too tall, they said, and yet, put it side by side with the regular sized Google Pixel, with its measly 5-inch screen, and the difference is not that noticeable, despite the G6 having a 0.7-inch larger display. The G6 is actually smaller than the Pixel XL and that device still only has a 5.5-inch screen.

Think about those display discrepancies in “old phone” terms. Take the Nexus 5 and Galaxy Note 3 for example. That’s a (close enough to) 5-inch screen and a 5.7-inch screen. But there’s over a 13mm difference in height and 10 mm difference in width between the two. Compare the LG G6 to the Pixel and that difference is down to 5mm in height and two and a half in width.

Of course, the Pixel might be a particularly bad example of “new smartphone” dimensions with its giant chin and forehead, but the LG G6 isn’t even the most extreme example of new phone dimensions. The Galaxy S8, the smaller of this year’s Samsung flagships, actually has a smaller footprint than the larger of last year’s Galaxy flagships, despite packing a 5.8-inch screen compared to the S7 Edge’s 5.5-inch display.
