I always see you people complaining about new phones being too slim and not thinking about battery life, but let's be sincere: you would never buy a bulky phone, even if offered 5 days of battery life.

Some people would :^)

You're right, I wouldn't buy an inch thick phone. But if it were a 6mm thick phone, or a 10mm thick phone with twice the battery life? I'd go for the latter, no question.

You dont meed to be bulky to get a good battery life.

You just need to stop the senseless goal of thinness at all costs, a phone doesnt need to be any thinner than an iphone 5

I'm not actually asking for a massively thick phone, but just a couple of mm more thickness. That's it. We're at the point now where Apple is focusing so much on lelsothin that the 3.5mm fucking audio jack is now too large for them.

Seriously, fuck that. Add an extra 1.5mm, MAYBE 2mm to whatever the iPhone's current thickness is. There, you're done.

>>
>>52318215
You are right and wrong at the same time.

Yes no one would buy a 20mm thick, non-rugged normal phone. But there is a point where thinness stops being comfortable, useful and is actually detrimental to phone usability and for what, 0.5mm off while camera lens protrudes?

How thinner than lets say iPhone 4 do we need to get? Thinness is a meme and bragging right after a certain point.

The Athena was a miss though; can't talk normally (only loudspeaker) and the keyboard wasn't comfy at all (the keys were really soft and flat, no tactile feel). Playing OpenTTD was godlike on that though.

No, but there's a fine line in-between "bulky" and "slim", that was hit a long time ago.

I don't need to bend my phone either.

I loved the "bulk" of my old Nokias. Give me a phone that thick, good specs, and 5 days of battery life and I'd buy it in a heartbeat

If it still fits in my pocket, why not?

If I'd need battery life I wouldn't mind a bigger phone but I fucking sit at home all day arry day and nobody calls me anyway so I don't care.

And then they carry additional battery packs and charging cables, and spend most of their time worrying about battery life and searching for power sockets.

It's just an n9 with a keyboard. The n9 though was really powerful for its time, I think I read recently that they've ported kitkat to it.

You can use the power bank to charge your handheld consoles or your sandisk clip.

I have to say that I mostly use the power bank when I forget charging my phone or some other device. My phone gets 6-10 hours of sot, so it easily survives almost 2 days depending on usage.

As long as you can easily use a phone for more than one day, I see no reason to get a thicker phone.

My thing is, a phone comes out, and it's touted as being the best thing ever. Next year, a new version (version 2, let's say) comes out, and it's selling point is being even thinner. And people remark how nice and thin it is.
The NEXT year, version 3 comes out, and it's even thinner. Everyone exclaims how nice and thin it is.
My thing is, is the version 2 from last year suddenly unbearably fucking fat? Was everyone just pretending that version 2 was thin?

That's what I fucking hate. Instead of trying to make the model thinner when last year's model was perfectly thin, just keep it the same thickness, but with a bigger battery to balance out the updated innards.

I swear, I'm either just batshit autistic as fuck, or every phone manufacturer is catered to the worst audience. That issue I stressed in combination with the ridiculous screen resolutions. It boggles my fucking mind that that's acceptable.
