HumongousPhoneLover , 06 Jun 2016We are both wrong here lol. The proper definition is "phablet". 9.7 inches isn't even that big... morehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phablet
size greater than 7 inches is a tablet, not a phone
I like to use phablet and Asus make me a decision to choose this rather than Xiaomi Mi Max.
Phones, display size start as: 60"/70"/80"120"/150" & hands size !? Hey scientists plz help! many user have need to big!? No ultra big hands!!
AnonD-478769, 06 Jun 2016Dude, that's called a tablet, not a phone.We are both wrong here lol. The proper definition is "phablet". 9.7 inches isn't even that big, neither is 12.9 inches. I'm waiting for a phone with a screen size the size of a 60 inch TV or the size of a entire wall in a room using something like augmented reality goggles like the Microsoft hololens or using mixed reality goggles like Magic Leap. All these phones from all the major manufacterers whether they are tiny 4 inch phones like the iPhone se or big tablet phones like the ipad pro are all very boring to me. I'm waiting for the next big innovation something like the Microsoft hololens or Magic Leap that will allow me to use 1 device to replace all the displays we currently use like smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops and TV'S. We will probably have to wait between 10-15 years until these augmented or mixed reality goggles will replace our current smartphones and become mainstream. But I might be getting a little bit too ahead of myself cause the flexible bendable display smartphones will probably come next after our current smartphones. And then after the bendable display smartphones will we see the augmented reality and mixed reality phones. Who knows what the future will hold, only time will tell.
ABdude, 02 Jun 2016May i ask what phone it is? sounds interesting!!I use an ipad pro 9.7 LTE as my primary daily driver phone. You can turn any ipad into a phone by using certain voip apps that allow you to create a local phone number. Once you create that local phone number with the app you just use the app to send/receive phone calls and text messages like any normal smartphone. You have to buy the LTE version of the ipad in order to turn it into a phone since the voip apps you use require an Internet connection.
If you want a 9.7 inch phone without using voip apps then check out something like the Samsung Galaxy tab s2 9.7 LTE. You can make regular phone calls and texts on this Samsung tablet like any normal smartphone without using the Internet. The only reason I got the ipad instead is because iOS is better than android for tablets. Android still lags far behind iOS on tablet optimized apps.
Dominator, 05 Jun 20161 more brand copycat sony xperia z ultra,..that so funny,hahaSo you mean to say that once someone created something, no one else has the right to do something similar, or better than it?
