Chronicle of backpocket-phone-fades saga
Contrary to what the anemic/bendgate bourgeois suggested, we typically place our phones in the backpocket. Primarily to build up fades and also for empirical reasons.
At the very beginning, we designed our pocket size based on the practicality to hold things (phone dimensions in this case). Apparently, we have to scratch that thought once the phalet size iphone 6plus came out.
