@gr36 While I love my 1st-gen iPhone SE, its small size is a handicap when it comes to some applications, particularly where the on-screen keyboard covers most of the screen. I'd be willing to go to a larger phone as long as it's comfortable to use, so I guess I need to go to a store and actually try holding them in my hand before I make a purchasing decision.

@gr36 I have never thought of my choice of phone size in terms of minimalism. The phone size I have typically chosen was the phone size that offered ME the best experience overall.

@gr36 Interesting approach to the topic. With feature phones there was a race to have smaller and smaller phones but with smartphones this has changed for me. Right now I'm using an iPhone 7+ and once it's announced, I'm going to upgrade to a 13 Pro Max. I noticed how much more use I got out of the 7+ compared to the 6 I had before and I expect something similar to happen with the 13 Pro Max.

@gr36 Agreed. It goes back to figuring out what works for you, taking inspiration from the experience and knowledge of other but ultimately not letting it lead to scenarios where you create an environment that works against your best interest/gut feel.
