  1. My personal view on how a smartphone should be developed is to split the phone, one side to contain the screen with extra memory slot, wifi, the remainder the phone, battery, RAM, processor, with a minimal screen.

    Large screen can be as large or small as users wants. Minimal screen acts as qwerty board, so Large screen need not be touch sensitive.
