In real life, I (and I believe a lot of other people) love the full-art layout. It's probably second biggest selling point for those packs. You're right that the text is smaller, but the sideways layout is perfectly fine since ice is installed sideways (just avoid having a tell that you're reading the ice card in hand if you're playing as the Corp). You may have to pick it up the first time you see the ice to read it though.
I can see it as a pain if you have to read the card on Jnet, but the easy solution was already mention. I hope they continue with the full-art WC decks; I think it's been one of their best ideas in the LCG format. I think you'll appreciate them too, once you've memorized a few of the ice.
