gerryjoson:acsonline: This is an interesting topic. Recently i switched from an iPhone 4 to an HTC Wildfire and then an HTC Sensation for a month - which is enough time for me to acclamatize to differences.
Loved the big screen on the sensation, great with navigation apps especially.. as long as I wasnt typing.
For some reason using the stock keyboard was a pain on the larger screen. Even Swype (which is what I normally use on Android) was just that little bit inaccurate.
Anyone else experience something similar?
Yes, I have a sensation and find I make a ton of mistakes typing on it, I put it down to the 16:9 screen being narrower
than my Desire HD, it's only 5 or 6mm, but seems to make a big difference.
I'd really like a 4"-ish version of the galaxy note, a stylus pen doesn't need a big screen to be efficient as long as the sensor is accurate.
I have been trailling a Sensation also versus my regular N1. I also find it harder to type on the Sensation, whether using the stock keyboard or Swype. I have no idea but possibly because my N1 has a screen protector which creates just enough friction so you don't slip all over the keypad while I am not going to put a screen protector on a eval unit.
OTOH while I didn't think I would like such a large phone, I am finding the larger screen size especially for videos (I watch a fair bit of Netflix on my N1) makes the viewing experience so much nicer. I wouldn't buy a Sensation because I don't like the customised UI much but it means when the Nexus Prime is out I will have experienced the larger phone size and screen and be ready for it.
I don't put phones in my trousers (I don't wear jeans). I either put them in a shirt pocket or hip case so size in that respect is not an issue for me anyway.
