Screen Size: Why I Can’t Make Up My Mind

One of the great perks of writing about tech is you get to play with all the latest and greatest devices. I love to try out new stuff and see what the latest trends bring. One of these trends is huge devices with screens that are 6 inches plus on a regular basis which I love.....I think.

Mini flagship devices are not in demand

Digitimes is reporting today that sales of so-called mini smartphones are on the wane as demand for the devices has fallen. The website claims sources within Taiwanese supply chains have confirmed that mini handsets have "fallen short of expectations" because of "uncompetitive performance-price ratios". The idea of the mini flagship was kick started by Samsung with the Galaxy S3 Mini, a handset I actually appreciated and so did the...
