Smartphones have changed the way we live, communicate and connect with other people. Well, you might have heard this end number of times from your colleagues, friends and relatives, but we genuinely can't think to dismantle a smartphone from our life.
It is a known fact that we now manage our work and family in a more organized way, all thanks to our smartphones. We're all addicted to our smartphones and we want them constantly around us. These days some people may be so engrossed in their phones that they would rather like to watch a full length movie on a mini screen, rather than a full fledged T.V.
Your smartphone is personalized in many ways: you can watch live T.V on go or catch a video in Full HD. If your smartphone has a bigger display, then you can take an advantage of Multi-Window like feature. Two apps side by side is indeed more helpful than a window floating atop another app.
The extra large screen also lets you type much faster compared to a 4-inch screen. Another advantage to get a large display smartphone is that you can share a video with a friend of yours. The extra large screen allows more people can see it with ease. Of course there are a number of advantages associated, if you get a large screen phone.
