I know smartphones are ubiquitous now but I'm kind of in awe that they are still designed to slide right out of your hand or on whatever surface you put them on unless you buy an aftermarket case or a pop socket.

Seems like a poor design choice!

Combine that with the old "I can't reach parts of the screen when using the phone with one hand without holding the phone in a very precarious way" thing and you're just setting your users up for expensive accidents.

@publius I'm afraid to even set my phone on something that isn't 100% flat. It slides around that easily. Terrible.

@matty Or is it an excellent design choice? It's just not designed for users, it's designed for more sales.
