A survey, performed by Strategy Analytics in the UK and US amongst current smartphone users, shows that more than 90% of consumers seek larger screens than those found on devices they currently own.
The explanation for this is that more and more people use their smartphones for web browsing, watching video and video conferencing, as well as mobile gaming. And as we all know, all of these are better on a bigger screen.
Unsurprisingly, females polled tended to wish for slightly smaller displays than males. Also, existing Android users were more likely to seek larger screens than their iPhone counterparts.
Strategy Analytics warned that any increase in screen size must not be accompanied by a similar increase in thickness or weight, because devices must remain compact enough to fit inside purses and pockets.

I do not want a larger phone...4 inches is ideal ...my lumina 532 is not a super phone but does everything I need or want. Battery is very decent. I do not play any games.... I wish that Sony would make a high end 4 inch phone.
The best phone for me is apple iPhone SE. The ideal screen size for me is 3.5 to 4.5 inches. But if phone in this size is not available then 5.0 inches is best and not a single inch bigger than it
Not necessarily. Higher resolution will need more power coz there are more spots to light up. Bigger screen doesn't mean more power consumption.
