That its big or that it is easier to use? It definitely is easier to use, in my opinion, it is just laggy to all hell. I hope it can be optimized with software not a hardware limitation, ie RAM or processor... but I am thinking it is hardware at this point, which is a bummer.
Everyone seems to agree the Tesla screen is faster and more responsive. As far as the UI, Tesla keeps things fairly simple and you don't have to go through a lot of sub menus to make changes (although many things can be done via the voice commands). Obviously this is subjective and once you've grown accustomed to the car, UI navigation becomes fairly simple regardless of the car.
In that it's portrait mode so you don't need to reach into the passenger's lap to access core functions which should probably have just been physical buttons in the first place, yes. Teslas have indisputably better software, but Ford has done well with their cabin design. Another success of Mach-E's big screen is what it doesn't display- the instrument cluster keeps your eyes closer to the road than Tesla's center screen does.
