“Here are the top devices which treat you with amazing smartphone experience on a large screen, while remaining portable enough”
The cliché says, “Curiosity is the mother of all inventions”, while we believe necessity is what leads to manifestation. Need is what led the man to invent the wheel. Or probably laziness. Nonetheless, since the beginning of time, necessity for newer and easier ways of doing things has only grown and led us to today’s era of technology and innovation.
In a bid to offer more choice to consumers, smartphone manufacturers came up with large-screened smartphones, and this was an idea that seems to have clicked. These giant beauties have long been admired by people who walk along the lines of ‘bigger being always better’. So, if you are also looking for such a device that treats you with amazing smartphone experience on a large screen, yet remains portable enough, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be talking about the top smartphones which feature screen sizes of 6-inches or more.
After all these years of reviewing devices, we concluded that the ‘perfect’ smartphone doesn’t exist, but the LeEco Le Max forces us to reconsider. Why are we calling it a near-perfect device? Well, maybe because of the exquisite 6.33-inches of QHD screen. Or maybe because of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor running under the hood. Or could it be the fact that the phone sports the latest USB Type-C technology. Or is it the 21MP Sony sensor at the back? Or maybe, it’s because of the hefty 4GB of RAM, coupled with 64GB storage which is expandable up to 128GB. Or it could probably be all of those reasons packed in gorgeous full-metal body. The Rs 32,999 price tag isn’t too hefty either.
