I imagine going lighter would've been a very easy transition. I'm always happy to eliminate weight from pocket or purse. Yeah, landscape would be great. And obviously the screen size. But, remember, my pockets are probably a lot smaller than yours and your dad's. And I hate carrying unnecessary weight in my purse. I also wonder how comfortable it will be for my small hands to hold up to my ear. I do still make phone calls! Not a whole lot, but some.
