Why thank you, good Sir/madam 🧐Okay I think I prematurely hit 'like'--I wouldn't say the ergonomics are terrible. I just know that many people find them more difficult to grip. Personally, I like the curve better aesthetically and ergonomically. Hold my iPP carves into my hands. Found the smoother edges easier on my flesh. However, my point in 'liking' still remains: I like that you pointed out that we might like the look of something more than the use of something: good point.
yes, terrible is a strong word 😄 what I don't like is that the curved aluminum is really slippery, and it slides out my hand more than the 5s did.
also, the curve kind of hurts my fingers when I squeeze hard to keep it from sliding out my hand. All in all, I just prefer the flat edges and think they are better for gripping things. The only way the round edge would be "better" is if it was a larger radius. (Think iPhone 3gs)
I absolutely will use the "slippery phone" argument that the radius of the edges of iPhone 6-X makes it slippery! 😂Definitely not. Curved edges are meant to contour to the hand comfortably (And please don’t use the ‘slippery’ argument due to rounded design). What it comes down to, ergonomics depends on one’s hand size and the overall size of the phone. I’ve never had an issue with the rounded edges being ergonomically frustrating based on my grip. In Terms of accountability and ergonomics, the rounded design simply just works. If we start discussing the squared edges for example on the 2016 iPhone SE, those became slightly uncomfortable given a sharp edges for one-handed use, which there was a few threads on that very topic.
It's also uncomfortable if gripping the phone tightly to avoid dropping it.
the edge of the phone doesn't "contour" to the hand because the radius is to small. The curve of the 3GS is a better representation of a curve that contours to the hand.
but please continue telling me what I shall and shan't do 😂 I'll have to give you a thumbs down. (Do thumbs down mean anything, really? Haha)
