    I saw somebody walking down the street the other day using a 7" tablet as a phone. I laughed out loud. I promise to laugh at anyone using this as well.

    Really , because I laugh when people are trying to watch videos on a stupid 3.5" iphone screen.

    More to the story - would you buy an expensive high tech gadget from ZTE?

    Re: News - ZTE’s 5.7-inch Grand Memo introduced at MWC

    im with Steve on this one, silly oversized designs... I know more normally means better but we are hit by a physical limitation! I can hold up to a 4.7" phone and I would agree people using tiny 3.5" screens are pushing it but I would rather one handed operations than two handed just to use a phone.

    I guess steve atleast that guy when whole hog and made use of the bigger screen instead of being half hearted haha!.

    It doesn't look *that* much bigger than the 4.7" phones. I have large hands, I reckon I could comfortably use this one-handed.

    Agree with Steve about 7" though, very funny to see. The mini bluetooth devices that allow you to make calls while leaving your tablet/phablet in your bag will become very common I reckon.

    Re: News - ZTE’s 5.7-inch Grand Memo introduced at MWC

    My 5.3" Note 1 is ok for occasional one handed use (and I only have average hands). This would probably be pushing it a bit but smaller bezels might help. I don't think i'd touch anything bigger than this but this would be ok.

    @Brewster0101 - Why wouldn't you buy from ZTE? After all Samsung, ASUS & LG all came from nowhere/budget markets. I'd rather buy based on spec and length of OS upgrades than a name.

    True dat!

    As did HTC. ZTE have been making other peoples phones for a while now, they are just starting to build their brand. HTC used the exact same method to enter the market.

    My girlfriend has actually had ZTE phones for a few years. The Orange San-Francisco 1 and 2, were both ZTE underneath - well made, quality devices.

    Just because "you" (generic dissenter of large screen phones) said it's too big doesn't make it so. "Why" is it too big? There are those who want a big screen device, that can make phone calls.
