We can all agree size matters. For a while, phone manufacturers focused on making devices smaller, thinner, and lighter. No one wanted to be seen with a Zack Morris phone, but it seems like the Apple iPhone 4 was a turning point. Instead of trying to be smaller than the iPhone 4 companies have been going larger. Even Apple started increasing their screen size, albeit ever so slightly, with the iPhone 5. Huawei has unveiled a monster 6.1 inch Android smartphone, but is it too big?
For years now, the United States government has been keeping a wary watch on the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei. It'd be almost comical how suspicious they've been if it weren't an entirely serious matter.

After a yearlong investigation, the House Intelligence Committee has decided that any dealings with Huawei pose a risk to national security.
