The size of the body has a big influence on the ease of carrying and one-handed operation. The narrower the width, the easier it is to firmly grasp and hold, but you also have to take into account the device's thickness.

On the contrary, if the width and height are large, it's difficult to fit in your pocket and is bulky even when put in a bag, and portability is impaired.

The OnePlus 8 has a width of 2.9 inches (72.9 mm), a length of 6.3 inches (160.2 mm), and a thickness of 0.3 inches (8 mm). Also, the OnePlus One has a width of 3.0 inches (75.9 mm), a length of 6.0 inches (152.9 mm), and a thickness of 0.4 inches (8.9 mm).
