Kelly, I'm with you. I even think of my small, razor thin clutches, I'm lucky to fit in a phone minus a case without transforming the look. A curved phone will not do in this scenario!

Great point about games, it may be something that requires a little getting used to. But a game with trajectory like Angry birds may always seem "off" with a curved phone

A curved screen is also likely to be far less appealing for games, which still represent the majority of app downloads.

re: Apple Explores Curved iPhone Designs
Even as someone who does carry a purse, I'm not sold on the benefits of a curved screen. I also fully appreciate the small size of the iPhone and hate the idea of upgrading to a bigger device that doesn't fit in a pocket - or in one hand. Apple can go ahead and expand their selection, but I'm hoping they keep smaller phones on the market too.

When did it become mandatory for a man to have to carry a purse? Five and six inch phones do not fit in your pants pocket. If you really need a big screen, buy an iPad, but leave the iPhone a phone first and foremost.

So what exactly is the appeal of a curved phone? It's just going to be more uncomfortable in a pocket than a rectangular phone.
