Re: One Reason, LTE Chipset

There has been a trend toward bigger phones for the past couple of years. But what has caused every phone maker to jump into the shoebox phone size arena is putting an LTE radio in the phones. The LTE chipset is huge and requires a big heatsink for cooling. Supposedly the next generation of chips will be much smaller and run cooler, but it seems to me once the trend has begun it's only going to continue.

I hate bigger phones too and will probably just keep what I have for a long, long time.
