Does America want larger smartphones or smaller ones? And why can’t we decide?

We keep going back and forth through time trying to figure out what works best for us. We’ve gone from something large and clunky like the Motorola Dynatac 8000 in the 80’s to a very small Nokia n80 in 2005 all the way back to an enormous iPhone 6 Plus in 2014. Should we get smaller again?

Well, Apple may be releasing another size option to their iPhone 7: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and introducing the iPhone 7 mini.

With the 4.7-inch screen of an iPhone 6 and a 5.5-inch screen of a 6 Plus, Apple users have been discontent with the sizes because they can be difficult to operate and they’re too large for most pockets to fit in comfortably. Most wish Apple would go back to the 4-inch screens they released in 2012 and 2013.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple will go back in 2016 and release the iPhone 7 as a 4-inch phone. He predicts that the smaller iPhone likely won’t have all of the features the bigger phones have ,such as the 3D Touch. Although, it would include the latest A9 chip so the new version of iOS runs smoothly. According to Kuo, it may also be encased in metal.

Will the iPhone 7 mini be success? Will America be happier with going back to a smaller screen? Can we decide on a size? Find out on the next episode of America: We Love Smartphones But We Hate Deciding.
