Remember back in 2010/2011 when all the first 4G phones were coming out in America? Remember the kick stands?
I was just thinking a few seconds ago about this. I remember a friend in high school having the HTC Thunderbolt it came with a built in kickstand for that then "massive" 4.3" WVGA display! So with all these near 5 inch or above 5 inch devices (like the HTC One, Galaxy S4/S5, Xperia Z2 etc.) why not bring the kick stand back? You prop up the phone and just lay on your couch and watch a movie or YouTube video on it. I guess a kickstand would add to the bulkiness of the device.
It just seems like with even bigger screens than 4.3" in 2014 it would be neat to have a kickstand again!
