It takes guts to come up with something new, in this case a new form-factor. This is why practically every single smartphone looks the same – rectangular in shape, a flat slab with the only progress being made in display size. Of course, releasing it is just the beginning, whether it’ll catch on with the consumers, that’s a whole other battle.

+++ Size is great for viewing documents, webpagses and most things that contain rows of text. Being able to fit more onto the screen means less zooming and scrolling.

+ The quality is solid. You certainly won’t find anything here worth complaining about. The colours are accurate and contrast is not bad either.
