Design Ideas For Phablet Smartphones

Saurabh Tiwary | 9th May 2016

Gone are the days when we used to have a tiny mobile phone having numeric keypads. The modern world is fond of using smartphones having bigger touch displays. Mobile phones are no more restricted to the application of making calls and sending text messages. Smartphones have gone a step further with increase in their size and have come up as a Phablet Smartphones.

Phablet Design


What is a Phablet?

Phablet is usually larger in size than normal smartphones and is smaller than a Tablet. As the name suggests, the word Phablet is the combination of two words i.e. Phone+Tablet= Phablet. Having known what a Tablet smartphone is, it is also essential for designers to know how to design apps and websites for Phablet Smartphones.


User-Interaction With A Phablet

Since Phablets are considerably larger smartphones, it is not easy for the users to conveniently interact with every element of display. Sometimes, people with smaller thumbs can really find it difficult to access menu on such smartphones.  So, it is very crucial for every designer to make a proper study before proceeding with any design.

Several Factors To Be Considered are:-

  • Most of the users move their hand over grip to access individual content
  • Though, most of the Phablet users multitask, but every interaction design should also focus on single window task management
  • Content or menus having higher priority should be placed within the reach of the thumb
  • Since Phablet users enjoy multitask, it is good to provide them with the mini windows apps for simultaneous app usability


How To Design For A Phablet?

A number of Phablets today come with a fitted stylus that not only adds to the ease, but also open grounds for the creativity of the users. So, it should be the prime concern of designers to allow users make best use of the Phablets.

What design enhancements can be done?

  • A lot of new Phablets offer double tap feature which makes it very convenient to access information
  • Mostly, users switch a lot between different information while using Phablets, so design should always focus on allowing concurrent functionalities
  • In some of the Phablet devices, users are also allowed to access content using one hand. So, it is good to provide choices to users whether they are comfortable with one hand operation or full view


So, that’s all about the basic design ideas for Phablets. Considering the large screen size of these devices, designers possess a lot of opportunities to add a lot to the design.
