Since the launch of the first successful large-screened smartphone back in 2011, the Samsung Galaxy Note, there has been a growing demand for devices with larger-than-normal displays. While originally these were mostly in the upper echelon when it comes to smartphone pricing, we're now seeing more oversized handsets hit the market with mid-range specs and price tags.
