I recently acquired a new cell phone — the Nokia Lumia 1520. It was such a good deal and had such good specs that I never thought to look at the phone’s physical measurements. Was I ever surprised when it arrived and was 6.4 inches tall and 3.4 inches wide! Yikes!
This picture gives you an idea of how awkward I feel when taking a call on this desk-calculator-sized cell phone. I’m trying to figure out how to carry it. My last phone, a Lumia 920, was much smaller and fit in a nice leather pouch on my belt. But this one would have to be rather conspicuous. While showing the new phone to our Mercedes-Benz sales manager, he told me that they make covers for these. Before I could respond, he said, “They call them suit cases.” Nice.
