Tech guys should know women don't want massive phones

  • Zeynep Tufekci said tech design is extremely gendered.

    "For one simple reason: Good smartphones are designed for male hands," she wrote at Medium. 

    Tufekci mentioned that her hands are just not big enough to be able to use smartphones with one hand. "For most men, it's just one small, added benefit," she said. "For many women, though, it's a reminder that the tech industry doesn't always remember or count your existence."

    The writer also said she believes the tech industry needs to take into consideration people from developing countries who are smaller in size instead of only focusing on men from rich ones.
