Phablet is a phrase used to describe a half- smartphone and half- tablet mobile device (a phone/tablet hybrid). It is better defined as a small pocket-sized mobile device that is a bit larger than the size of an average smartphone, with a touch screen ranging in size from 5 inches to 7 inches.


While larger than a smartphone, it is much smaller than most tablets and can be held and used in one hand. Phablets typically use 3G or 4G networks for cellular calls and are Wi-Fi – enabled devices. Check this piece on TGF to know more about phablets.

PS: Words like “phablet,” that are created from parts of two different words, are known as portmanteaus.
