5 reasons to buy a big-screen phone

The last couple of months have been pretty huge when it comes to big-screen phones. You had the Samsung Galaxy Note9 release in August – and the amazing new iPhone Xs Max, which hit the shelves last week. The arrival of these feature-heavy phablets got us thinking about just how amazing big-screen phones are. Need more convincing? Let’s show you the bigger picture.

Bigger multitasking

If you haven’t heard about the joys of multitasking yet, it’s a useful feature that lets you run more than one program or app at the same time. So, for example, you could be on a train streaming your favourite new box set, while getting involved in a group chat with your mates. That really is having the best of both worlds.

Multitasking splits your screen into two parts. And you guessed it, the bigger your screen, the better your multitasking experience will be - because you’ll get to see more of the two or more tasks you’re in the middle of.

Boosts your battery life

They’re larger – so it makes sense that their batteries are usually designed to last longer. This is because manufacturers are able to fit larger capacity batteries inside larger handsets.

Take the Huawei P20 Pro with its huge battery that uses artificial intelligence - making sure you get the most out of your battery. How? Its power management capabilities learn how you’re using your battery so that you can avoid the dreaded drain. Pretty smart, right?

Get a full view

Research shows that 57% of smartphone users use their device to watch videos on. That’s a huge amount! So why not opt for a larger screen to watch all of that entertainment on? Like the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. Its generous 6.2-inch infinity display curves round, so you won’t miss a single inch of your new Netflix obsession.

Entertainment not your thing? Big-screen phones let you view more of whatever you’re doing. If you’re a gamer, you’ll want as much screen as you can possibly get for full immersion. You’ll also see full emails without having to scroll, read bigger chunks of books and articles, and get a better grip on editing your photos and videos.

Typing is much faster

Nowadays people message each other far more than they actually call. That’s why having a fast, accurate and easy-to-use keyboard on a big bright phone screen is super important. Bigger phones give you more visibility of your keyboard letters – resulting in speedier responses.

Accuracy when typing could also improve, meaning less time trying to correct infuriating types. Some big screen phones even come with a stylus – but that’s a whole other article.

Find it in a flash

We’ve all been there. You have to leave the house in a hurry but you can’t find your phone. Well, the bigger the phone, the easier it is to spot when you need it.

It’ll be tricky not to spot a dazzling 6-inch Google Pixel 2 XL on a messy desk, that’s for sure. So, getting someone to quickly call it so you can track it down will be a thing of the past.

In the market for a larger smartphone? We’ve got all of the super-sized phones mentioned above - and more - at Carphone Warehouse.
