Tuntuuko tuo näyttö tai puhelin liian isolta? Tekstin kirjoittamisessa isompi näyttö varmaan toimii paremmin mutta joutuuko pystyasennossa yhellä kädellä käytettäessä kurottelemaan liikaa tai vaikeasti peukalolla ylä- tai alalaitaan?
Pienemmät puhelimet ovat tuossa mielessä (ja taskuunsopimismielessä) tosiaan näppärämpiä, minulla on kuitenkin sen verran pitkät sormet että saan tuon kokoisen näytönkin yhdellä kädellä aika hyvin ulottuville. Kannattanee kokeilla ennen mahdollista hankintaa.
Further experiences: it now feels really clumsy to use traditional typing techniques in the touch screen – swype, the swiping keyboard of Android is so much better and faster. Its ability to guess words from the finger movement is not perfect, of course, but it is good enough to soon become intuitive. On the other hand, much of the Android applications are not working as well (feature-wise, but particularly being slower, or somehow unreliable or clumsy). But there are exceptions. For example, I think that the Android version of Spotify app actually feels better than the iOS one. There are apps like HS.fi (the newspaper app) that feel better in Samsung, due to what I consider the better screen of this Android phone. And as a downside, Samsung had so much trouble connecting reliably to the wifi network of my work place (University of Tampere) that I actually have turned it off over there. iOS devices has also had troubles with it (the Cisco router configuration they are using has something really funny going on), but not as bad as the Samsung phone.
Gut feeling is usually the best test. Currently I find automatically taking up the Galaxy S II rather than iPhone when I need to use a service or application, and that is really good sign about the current state-of-the-art level of Android user experience.
