the physical design of our phones influences what they are used for. If people make fewer and fewer voice calls, part of that is because of the physical awkwardness of holding an increasingly large plate of glass to their ears.
For a while, Bluetooth headsets solved the problem, but then those became socially unacceptable and we had to go back to holding phones to our ears. While LG have been making gradually more curved smartphones, we’re still a long way behind the ergonomics of the 1960s — at least, if you want to make a voice call.
