Research firm, Strategy Analytics, released a report earlier this week claiming that smartphone users want thin devices with large displays. They say that the sweet spot for these users is for a device with a 4.0-inch to 4.5-inch display, preferably one that is also thin and one that has a high-resolution display.
This is a trend that Sony (Ericsson) commented on in its recent Q4 results. At the time they said that the performance of the Xperia mini range was challenging due to the consumer preference for larger smartphones. We thought we’d take a quick poll of our readers to find out what sized phones people prefer. We don’t expect too many surprises, although we still expect that there will be a sizeable minority who are clamouring for a 2012 update to the Xperia mini.
