New Phone Compare Features
The big new feature is side-by-side phone size comparisons. You can put up to five phones side-by-side and see which ones are bigger, thinner, etc. It's to scale and includes front and side views for the vast majority of phones.
Also, the whole Compare interface is now much simpler and easier to use. We've eliminated the separate page for building a list of phones to compare. Now you simply go the Compare page and start adding phones.
Finally, you can now easily re-arrange the phones being compared, if you want to see them in a different order.
Please let us know what you think. We'd love to hear your feedback.
... Maybe a phone vs. playing cards or some other familiar object would be good as well.
I considered that. I know some other sites do that.
I'm not convinced that's truly useful. Why not just compare phone X against an iPhone? (Everyone's seen an iPhone and know how big that is, right?) Maybe that's just me.
I appreciate the feedback, though. If we added that, you think you'd use it?
I've never actually thought about the usefulness of the feature, but I definitely see what you mean. Especially with as comprehensive as your list is, it would be even more useful for them to just find their current phone to stack up.
I've added screen size to that page, and added a little tip nudging people to use their old phone for comparison.
