You play video games, right? Then, perhaps, you've come across a Nintendo 3DS or a Nintendo 3DS XL. If so, you'll know vaguely how big Apple's new smartphones are.

Twitter user HaltroN1 created this image, which looks to be a fairly accurate comparison between the new iPhones and the gaming handhelds.

I realize that there are other smartphones that are way bigger than the iPhone 6 Plus. It's just charming that this Twitter user thought the best way to express their size was through Nintendo portables.

So far, this image has been retweeted over five thousand times after being uploaded earlier today in Japan.

Update: Japanese Twitter user Kazuharukina made this handy PS Vita comparison.

I honestly don't get the appeal of larger phones. Seriously it feels like one of those really popular concepts that I just cannot get my head around, like X-Factor or Family Guy.

The iPhone 4 was the perfect size, and looks way more elegant than those newer iPhone designs too. I'm not sure what's going on. To me it's like Apple is simply pulling a really big practical joke. How ugly can we make the iPhone before people (en masse) call us out on it?

What IS the appeal of a larger phone? Are you people not carrying them in your pockets? Those with ultra sized devices, how do you use them as phones?

(I was really hoping the iPhone 6 would be 4 sized, and the 6 Plus be the size it currently is for the bigger phone people)
