Larger icons arriving on Korean Galaxy S2 phones

Samsung Galaxy S2 Senior ModeSamsung has announced a nifty new update for Korean versions of the Galaxy S2 Android smartphone. One of the main features of the update is the unofficially named “Senior Mode”. This update gives Galaxy S2 owners the option to enable larger icons on their phones, making them easier to see and locate. While having a big screen usually means more space for more icons, this feature will help those without perfect eye sight navigate their devices and launch apps much more easily. What a good idea if you ask me – not only will this help this with bad eye sight, people with very large fingers will probably appreciate the option as well.

At the moment, Samsung doesn’t have any plans to release this update outside of Korea but we wouldn’t be surprised if it gets released globally in the future. What do you think of “Senior Mode”? Is it a feature that all phones should have in the first place?
