I'm getting really irritated with phone sizes. I figured they would have shifted back to being smaller by now, but NOPE. Sure there's smaller ones available, but they aren't flagship. I want a fast, powerful phone that isn't 7 freaking inches.

I'm well aware I'm in the minority. I'm not saying the phone companies are making the wrong choice - that would be wildly ignorant considering they're multi-billion dollar companies...

Just opinions.

I'm confused. :hmm:

If your primary use is as a phone/texting device, small is good. If it's browsing, map directions, pictures/videos, larger is seemingly preferred. The latter seems to be the majority of users.

I'm comfortable with my iPhone 6 Plus, fits in most pockets I have. Just my opinion...

I have no issues carrying the iPhone 7 in my front or back pocket. I prefer the larger size.

The only issue with the 7 in the back pocket is making sure you don't bend or crush it when you sit. You need to shove it to the side or something?

My front pockets can fit an iPad mini.

Speaking of which, my iPhone was at my office one day, and when my family and I went to the mall I had to bring my iPad mini. Wouldn't you know it, I got a call. So I put it up to my head like any other phone and had my conversation. People looked at me funny and I just explained to them this is an iPhone 12 and I came back from the future. :-D

Yes, I've taken calls on the iPad. I usually stick the iPhone in the back pocket when I'm shopping or walking and not when sitting. But most of the time? It's in front.

Ah yes, taking it out looks so much better than playing with your butt every time you sit. :-D

I do a lot of sitting and standing up during the day.  When I am standing up, I have no problem with iPhone 6 size.  It is when I sit that I feel it is too bulky.  With SE, this is not a problem.

As I have mentioned a few times already, I now have a Motorola G5+ which to me is something akin to "magic" being as how I am not as culturally advanced as some. I like it, nice size, good battery life, learning curve not too bad. The Android interface is pretty neat and as long as I can find a WiFi connection, I am not burning up any plan data limits. (don't use data that much anyway).  I agree though, that some of the newer phones are approaching tablet size to the point of being ridiculous. Well, maybe that is an exaggeration, but you know what I mean. Need to find a mid point of form vs function.

@Yukari I’m with you, the iPhones started getting annoyingly large, and I’d been hanging onto my old 5c with the hopes for a smaller option.  I picked up the SE a couple months ago and it’s been nice.  I hope they continue to keep a smaller option around in the future, for fellas such as ourselves.

    • It’s a great method for all you great ball strikers. But when you’re hitting over 200 balls with massive fats, smother shanks along with deep divots to begin with...it doesn’t really matter...you’re making a mess. This is why I always lay down the seed/sand mixture when I’m done.
    • Again… If you enjoy playing your way, by all means, have at it. I'm approaching this as a coach, an instructor, and the author of a book dealing with exactly this stuff as if you were asking me how to shoot the lowest scores and play your best golf. It is not by hitting irons only. I wrote the topic. Suffice to say I've read it. Your good and bad swings are consistent. If you were "inconsistent" you'd have rounds where you shoot 72 and others where you shoot 110. You're consistent enough that you tend to shoot a pretty narrow range of scores. It does no such thing. Comparing racing high-powered race cars to hitting the driver? Fail. Hell, a 2-iron would be the last club I'd put in the hands of a new golfer, and a driver is one of the easier ones - the ball is in the air (you're not hitting it off the ground), it has a huge club face, etc. Not if you want to shoot the lowest scores. Obviously there are "other options." You could play golf hitting every shot with your putter ten feet at a time. Pretty stupid way to play, but it's "another option." He did it by learning to hit driver. No, not bollocks to me. Driving is about twice as important as putting. Approach shots are almost three times as important. These are facts. The short game and putting only account for about 33% of the differences in your score. If I had you hit every shot of mine inside of 60 yards and every putt, you'd break 80. If we switched roles, I would probably not shoot more than about three to six shots better than you're shooting now. The old saying was wrong. It is almost exactly backward. Driving and approach shots are the skills with the highest "Separation Value®."
    • The point I was making is… if the rules limited golf equipment more than they did… people would still be buying new clubs and new balls. So I don't see how it's "all about the money" and you haven't made that point at all.
    • Thanks, I appreciate the feedback, it definitely gives me a lot to think about and work on! I know my swing is poor, but I’m very motivated to improve.  I’m also going to re-start lessons in January. I’m aiming for an update here every couple weeks so you guys can keep me on track—and I appreciate brutal honesty!!
