I have long failed to see the point of these devices, which also include the Nokia Lumia 1320, Intex Aqua Octa, Micromax Canvas Doodle 3, Sony Xperia T2, LG G Pro 2 and several others. Theyre too big to be used on a regular basis. I mean, try putting one in your pocket and bending to tie your shoelacesthe edge of that phone stabbing your gut.
The only exception I made was for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (although thats technically 5.7 inches). Why Because of the embedded stylus and the bundled software which takes advantage of a big screen, such as splitting it into two or using the stylus to turn your device into an actual notepad. Dont buy into the finger is the only stylus you need hype, on a big screen, a stylus is a wonderful addition for quick notes and simple image edits (like giving directions).
But apart from that, a 6-inch smartphone dont make much sense. It is an experience that doesnt leave you satisfied as a tablet user, nor as a smartphone user.
India is a price-sensitive market, so there is the argument that a 6-inch phablet gives you the best of both worlds while spending on only one. But that doesnt hold true as much. You get good tablets for Rs. 10,000, you get good phones like the Motorola Moto E for Rs 7,000 added together, thats the same as the price of a Zenfone 6.
If you asked me, I would never recommend a 6-inch phone. It is denying yourself a good experience of a separate phone and tablet. Of course, if you have huge hands and a 6-inch phone fits perfectly in your palm, then by all means, go for it. But if you cant use it with one hand, dont bother.
