If you find yourself wanting a bigger screen on your phone, you are probably getting into the phablet world. Never heard of a phablet? No worries we’ll tell you all about this new craze.
What is a phablet?
It is a PHone-tABLET hybrid that combines the functionalities of a smartphone with the big screen experience of a tablet. Normally the screen sizes ranges between 5 and 6 inches, just look at the iPhone 6 Plus and the new Nexus 6 for good examples.
Phablet’s Great Battery Life
Since the physical size of the phone is bigger it means there is more room for battery. This is the single largest improvement you’ll notice with a phablet, longer battery life.
Taking the Most of the Display
If you enjoy watching videos, playing video games, reading e-books or editing documents; the Phablet’s large screen will make your old smartphone fall short. Just look at the Nexus 6, it will feel big at first but once you get used to it very few go back.
When looking at the iPhone 6 you’ll notice it has a 4.7 inch 1334×750 display, however this pales in comparison to the iPhone 6 Plus’s display of 5.5 inches at 1920×1080. While the iPhone 6 Plus offers a great looking screen even that pales in comparison to some of the Android competitors, for example the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 a 5.7 inches and the Google Nexus 6 at 5.96 inches both offering an even more amazing 2560×1440 resolution.
What about the Phablet Camera?
While it’s true that the camera found in most phablets is the same as that found in regular sized smart phones, the one advantage most don’t think about is the view finder. You’ll find it easier and faster to take great looking pictures when you have a large high-resolution screen as your viewfinder. The days of looking through a little hole to see what you’re shooting are gone.
Take Multitasking to a New Level
Large screen size also means that you can take multitasking to a new level. Samsung takes advantage of the added screen space on the Galaxy Note 4 with its Multi Window technology, which means you can open up multiple windows on a single screen and run two apps simultaneously side by side. So, you can watch a video while writing an email or messaging your friend at the same time. Convenience offered only on a phablet.
