I've always been a proponent of smaller phones. I currently use a 6s. My interest in smaller phones is pocketability rather than one handed use. In the past I’ve found that even my 6s is a bit tall when going up stairs or trying to sit down. Then I realized it’s really only a problem with my older pants. Shallow pockets. Today, I had a chance to sample and pocket a Max. It was a bit big but probably workable. The slightly smaller size of the XR seems about right. Ironically, this experience was with newer skinny jeans. My problems are with my older standard jeans, which have shallower pockets. Smartphones have shaped the clothing industry and that’s given me my first interest in bigger phones. Curious if anyone else has noticed this trend.
