Pocketing a Large Phone

The technology writer for the Houston Chronicle, Dwight Silverman, wrote an article about how he could not get used to the size of the iPhone 6 Plus. As a Galaxy Note 4 user, I could relate to many of his points. However, I think that large phones should not be put in pockets after all. Here is the comment I wrote:

After being eligible to upgrade on Verizon, I initially considered the iPhone 6 Plus. However, for personal reasons, I could not consider it as an option. I ended up getting a Galaxy Note 4 which is similar in size to the 6 Plus. I love it. The additional screen real estate is amazing. However, I never store my phone in my shirt pocket so that was not a constraint for me. Actually, I find that I often don't put my Note 4 away at all. When I'm at my desk or in a meeting, it sits on the table next to me. When I'm driving, I usually put it on the passenger seat next to me or, if that seat is occupied, on the dash. I think that using a phone the size of the iPhone 6 Plus or Note 4 means that it is stored like a tablet. And by that, I mean it is usually not in a pocket.
