Remember how Apple laughed off the giant 5-inch phone trend of 2010? “No one’s going to buy that,” said Steve Jobs at the time, “you can’t get your hand around it.” Well, a year later and Samsung would release the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note and forever cement “phablet” into our gadget vernacular. Meanwhile, Apple continued to argue body part dimensions well into 2014. It took a few years, but Apple and everyone else eventually followed Samsung’s lead, with the bigger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sending Apple’s already record profits into the stratosphere. Hell, nobody even says phablet anymore because giant phones are now the norm.
