One thing I raved about when I moved to the iPhone SE was the added convenience and the extra practicality that it offered. It felt right and in many ways is the perfect size married to a stunning design. It was like going back to an old friend from the terrible iPhone 6 design and I was all set.
And then I recently moved back to the iPhone 7 and it feels fine. Bizarrely, it feels perfectly normal to use an iPhone 7 even thought it is bigger than the SE, bigger to the point that it just steps over that line where I can use it one-handed.
I am sure that if I moved back to the SE I would struggle because of my eyesight, but in other ways I would likely get used to it in a couple of days.
Maybe it means that we are able to adjust much more easily than we expect and maybe it means that we should think about the screen size we need and not the phone size. An iPhone 7 Plus would feel huge, but perhaps I would adjust to that as well.
Ultimately, there is little point to this quick article except to say that I have become ambivalent to the size of the phones I use and possibly because I don’t get emotionally involved with them anymore. I want them to do a job and I am more easily pleased than in previous years. Consequently, I am more likely to accept minor problems as a natural part of the experience.
