Why android phones have larger screens and dimensions (than the iphone)?
There are some theories why android phones evolved to 4+" displays and that's considered a "standard" size (if not small, considering the Galaxy Nexus and it's 4.65" display).
First being the way android renders the information on the display (same way windows does it) and to avoid text and icons becoming too small with increased resolution they had to increase the display's dimensions (physical size).
Second being the bigger physical size of the LTE chip + the increased power consumption, resulting in larger (wide and height) phone dimensions while still keeping the thickness at minimum.
What do you guys think?
