I wish phone companies made the batteries bigger when they made these monolithic things that ideally would fit in a normal person's pocket.

And here I am still rocking the 6S as the lack of headphone jack is a big deal for me. I hate the the whole “Us vs Them” thing but I can’t defend that design choice. I was actually considering trading up to a 6 Plus. My old eyes need a bigger screen

I agree with the complaining women.
I've been a very unhappy user of an iPhone 5s for the last 2 years. The only reason I got it was that it had the best specs (camera and CPU) in a size that I could still call pocketable.
This weekend I'm moving to an LG G6.
This basically means the end to this great period when I could easily:
- operate a phone with one hand (I have medium hands, glove M),
- carry it in a pocket in any trousers (even shorts),
- put it into a tiny saddle bag when cycling,
- easily check time on my phone (since it was always in my pocket, I haven't used watches for almost 10 years)
and so on.

From this weekend I'll have a phone like everyone else, which means:
- I'll usually carry it in a bag/backpack,
- I'll have to buy a larger saddle bag for my bike,
- I'll have to carry it in hand while moving around the office (like all those other people around),
- I'll have to fix my watch.

This is really pretty sad. This tiny gadget that became so important in my life... is not tiny anymore. Now it will start to make my life worse.

And who knows... maybe I'll buy a smartwatch?
In fact... wasn't this the idea from the start? To kill small phones and make smartwatches more attractive?
Where are the "mini flagships" from Samsung and LG? They used to be best-sellers just few years ago.

Couldn't care less myself, apple stopped innovating from the iphone 4, I've seen more progress made in sheets of paper.

Edit: Yes I owned a iphone 4 - It was great till It slowed down.

A phone doesn't need to be big and I actually abhor big phones..... the new Xs is described as a phone for one handed users, and the Max is described as for those who don't mind using 2 hands. Of course, it's needs to be understood what you are buying a "phone" for ?

1. Option 1 - As a tool to make phone calls, use apps, maybe catch some scores while traveling

2. Option 2 - An entertainment device to watch cat videos and memes, check out babes on Tinder, goof off on the company dime and other forays into mental masturbation

Last phone that impressed was the Treo 650 ... used it for 7 years and would still be if it didn't die.

I agree with the complaining women.
I've been a very unhappy user of an iPhone 5s for the last 2 years. The only reason I got it was that it had the best specs (camera and CPU) in a size that I could still call pocketable.
I just checked to see what my 5s was worth ... on trade in carrier will give me $30 :). No complaints at all tho... other than the LifeStrong case disintegrating slowly over time and the difficult to replace battery. Don't understand the bigger and thinner push .... I want smaller and thicker w/ slide off replacement batteries. I used to charge thre 650 every Saturday afternoon. Today's phone shave difficulty getting thru a day. The amphasis on form over substance is disturbing ... I fear I will walk into a hardware staore and see hammer's color coordinated to match my "outfit" and breathing LED strips along the handle.

I'll likely wind up with an Xs under a BOGO thing .... I know my son will be getting a X Max. The group he flies for pays for his and Im not going to say no to a free phone. Few options for pilots as support for flight maps, flight logs and other aviation uses are limited outside of apple. Entire industry if built around it. Have yet to meet a pilot w/o an iPad or iPhone in flight bag. That will make it 3 Apples and 2 Samsungs on my account. Could have just as easily chosen the max but too damn big. Waiting for the day when peeps will be walking around holding a small pizza box up to their ear to make a phone call.

I would like to get a 4.5" phone with flagship specs and a headphone jack rather than the trend for 6+", as thin as possible and no headphone jack. I found that my Sony Z3c was the perfect size for my hands and was great to use one handed and the XZ that replaced it is just a bit too big for my hands.

I carry around an iPad and find that a tad too big for one hand, if it were 8" it would be perfect for single handed use, for me.
I also carry a 4.5" and 5" phone the majority of the time and these easily fit in my pockets, but the smaller screen strains my eyes.

When I had the 2013 Nexus 7 I found I was capable of one hand use on the touchscreen.
But should this really be about "founding one is capable"?
Literally everything around us used to be made as easy to operate, aka ergonomic. Phones as well.
Touchscreens were already a small move agains this idea, but we got smartphone's huge possibilities instead.
But the move towards larger screen is really against sense. People stopped valuing features and ergonomics - they simply want the phone to be bigger. Bigger is better, right? :)

Just look at the lineup of any large Android smartphone maker. You'll see that the fragship phones are usually the ones optimized for one hand use and slightly smaller (but still way larger than few years back).
But the mid-range is just absurdly huge. Just look at Samsung S8 vs A8, Sony XZ2 vs L2 and now Apple XS vs XR.

6.2 inch S8+ plus here, still pocketable and can handle it with one hand just fine. I genuinely cannot understand why people still complain about this. The matter of the fact is the overwhelming majority of us do want huge phones and can use them just fine.

If you are annoyed by this then I am sorry to say this but your in the minority here, not the other way around and phone manufacturer will always cater to the majority.

Not really. It just reflects this world's current sjw and pc and culture
No, it reflects the infinite hype around any Apple release. Its almost keynote time, remember.

Don't be so gullible pls. Not all news you read is news. Just because some idiots post something on Twitter doesn't make something even remotely interesting or noteworthy. The solutions are readily available, there's a massive range of phones available in all sizes. So you don't buy an Iphone, Apple loses business (apparently, its a major issue *lmao*) and next year you get your SE back. Nonissue solved.

The best solution is: DISCONNECT. Really. If this news affects your temper, go outside.

Not really. It just reflects this world's current sjw and pc and culture
No it doesn't, it reflects a few loud people who are the extreme minority who are getting attention because the news outlets are entertainers on all sides, and need as many click bait titles as possible to get the ads to pay them.

If you want objective news then read Pro Publica, or other sites that are non-profit.
