When I look at my wife’s (genuine) HTC One X, and my friends Samsung Galaxy note I often feel the reflex twinge of screen envy, something I’m sure all iPhone users have been suffering from other the past 12 months of more.

Well if you want to wipe the smug face of those use use phone screen size to compensate, then the CarPad Note 5 F6 is the phone for you!

I don’t know why this Chinese phone is called the CarPad unless they are actually trying to claim that it is big enough to comfortably park a car on! Which it almost is thanks to it’s full 6 inch screen!!

    854×480 resolution on a 6 inch screen? Fail.

      Wow! Good catch! Fingers crossed it’s a typo! I double check now.

    @popo @andi I’ve used dell streak 5″phone which got 480 x 800 and honestly I never felt that display is bad or useless.

    In my opinion the display resolution is a over hype propaganda mainly by Americans, initially inspired by iphone owning Americans.

    I’m saying this as many of my Russian and European friends never talk much on display as a compelling feature in a budget phone. But my American friend always crib about it. 🙂

      I think resolution is one of those things you only miss once its gone. Like when I try to use an old iPhone after using a Retina display for so long.

    Hi again,

    This prediction game and ‘wish listing’ is getting to be too easy !!

    Strike another one for the 6 inch lists … hell no !! … strike 3 or 4 for the past day or so.

    Soon, our Chinese friends will notice the reader’s poor comments about screen definition … and they’ll fix that; you can be sure.

    I, too, have used a Dell Streak 5 for the past year – and I still use it every day. Every time I use it in public it still gets ‘oohhs and aahhs’ from passers-by.

    When I’m asked to explain that it is 2 years old most users seem astonished … and when I say it has never missed a beat in that time I get story after story of their personal disasters with smartphones from all over the place.

    Today’s ‘knock-offs’ have a rising habit of becoming 1 million unit sellers …

    Maybe the Samsung Galaxy NOTE2 will be a ‘6 incher’ after all ?

    Watch this space.

    Does it have the magnetic field sensor?
    Which other sensors does it have?
    Who is the manufacturer? What is the manufacturer web-site?

    My last comment here discussed the possibility that the Samsung Galaxy NOTE II just might turn out to be a 6 inch device. Some hopes !

    But I still LOVE IT.

    Now along comes the Carpad !

    Two points …

    1. The screen resolution is ridiculously poor and there’s no chance IMHO that it will succeed.

    2. On the good side … the overall size of this device means that it will EASILY fit into any number of various pockets … male or female shoulder bags etc. etc.

    Sad person that I am … I made a cardboard replica of an early Samsung ‘7 inch’ device – and this has sat on my desk for over a year. In that time the 7 inch tablets genre / type of tablet has become slightly smaller – and they ALL now fit into my jacket inside pocket.

    The CARPAD, here shown, will easily do the same … and that’s why I have been banging on about “6 inch” devices being the IDEAL TABLET FORMAT … for the past 9 months or so !!

    Way to go for the 6 inch format !!!

    I like the idea of 6 inch phones. 7″ is too big for a phone. 6″ is perfect. I own dell streak 5. I have been using it for close to 2 years now. It is amazing phone. Dell made a poor job of commercialising it. The phone, however, is the best phone ever made. I owned iphone, samsung, etc. Dell streak 5 is the best phone.
