iPhones Have Outgrown Your Pocket

iPhone Generations
First iPhone, iPhone 4S, and iPhone X
Current iPhones are just too large.  I saw one -- an iPhone 6 perhaps -- squeezing out from the front pocket of a young woman's stretch jeans.  With each step she took, the iPhone slid a little further out.  But she couldn't save it as her arms were full with two trays of sheet cake.

Walking past her, I made eye contact, and then looked down to her pocket.  She smiled and asked, "Could you?..."

I gently pushed the phone back into her pocket.  She thanked me and I continued on my way.

When I recount this tale, the guys would, in mock frustration, say "Mike, what's the problem?  Why are you complaining that phones are too big?  Did you at least get her number?"

Okay, this particular situation made for a fun blog entry. But being serious, a phone should fit in your pocket comfortably and be properly sized for one handed operation. The iPhones that came after the 4S pushed past those boundaries, delaying my upgrade from the 4S until it could no longer function well.
