Consider removing 'Phablet' as a segment


#1

I’m wondering why there’s a device category/segment called Phablet.

It’s quite old fashioned, and practically nobody uses that term anymore. Same goes for Smartphone actually. They’re not smart anymore, they’re normal.

(Remember the last time you called your television a flatscreen?)

Today, people speak of ‘Mobile’ and ‘Tablet’.

Also, it’s not about the type of devices per se, it’s how people use them. A phone is used as a phone, no matter if it’s 2" or 6", and same goes for tablet. I see no use for a Phablet segment, other then giving me inaccurate mobile/tablet data.

I see your point. Maybe it would be good to discuss that on github.
