Size Matters | Big screen phones we love

By  GB Blog Official 2017-01-26 852 0

So why do I like large screen phones so much? Just one reason really: the infinitely better experience because of the size.

For me, nothing beats the full immersion of watching videos or TV shows on big smartphones. Young or old, if you agree with me, then you'll love this article.

I have to confess that large screen smartphones are a special kind of treat, generally 6.0 inch is more than enough, and most phablets are very cheap. Read on and you'll see what I mean.


8 Big Screen Smart Phones that Prove Size Matters
 

1. ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 4G Phablet


Display: 6.0 inch FHD IPS Screen (1920 x 1080) with 368 PPI 

CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8939 64bit Octa Core (1.7GHz x 4 + 1.0GHz x 4 )
GPU: Adreno-405
System: Android 5.0
RAM + Internal Storage: 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage 
Camera: 13.0MP rear camera with flashlight + 5.0MP front camera
Bluetooth: 4.0
Features: GPS, A-GPS, GlONASS, Beidou
Sensor: Gravity sensor, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor, Light sensor, Geomagnetic sensor, Gyroscope & Hall sensor

 

The versatile ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser adopts a huge 6.0 inch 1080P FHD screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for enhanced wear-resistance and a screen-to-body ratio up to 72%. Anti-finger print technology helps you get rid of annoying fingerprints.

The detachable back case, using an innovative imitation metal wire drawing process combines with the ergonomic arc-shaped curve for great texture and superb handling.

The impressive 13.0MP shooter supports F/2.0 aperture and zero delay shutter, with the right side of the lens featuring a double color temperature flashlight, while the left side rocks the newly upgraded infrared band laser focus module. The result? Better focus even in low light conditions and 0.03 seconds super speed focus.


 Pros: 0.03 seconds super speed laser focus, great for photographing; premium style and design.

 Cons: Power button placement on the top is not very convenient.
 


2. HUAWEI Mate 8 ( NXT-DL00 ) 4G Phablet


Display: 6.0 inch IPS screen (1920 x 1080 pixel) with 367 PPI
CPU: Hisilicon Kirin 950 (4 Core x A72 2.3GHz + 4 Core x A53 1.8GHz) + i5, 64 bit 16nm
GPU: Mali T880

Long story short: the Mate 8 is stunning. Its beautifully crafted, all-metal design with a subtle curve employs many of the familiar design characteristics from the renowned Mate series. Significantly, for something adorned with a 6-inch screen, it doesn't feel oversized at all, as they've kept it remarkably svelte and lightweight.

With an all-new Kirin 950 chipset that delivers powerful performance and low power consumption, the Mate 8 introduces a whole new dimension to smartphone performance. The Kirin 950 chipset is more streamlined, more energy efficient and much faster when it comes to everyday tasks such as browsing the web, watching videos, or launching apps.
