Great poll, guys. This'll definitely be an eye opener for fans and manufacturers alike. Personally, any size below 6" is good, since a massive phone is but a small tablet, and it's rather inconvenient to raise and a hold a behemoth of those proportions to one's ear for extended periods of time. Obviously, workarounds exist, but it's just too much hassle, in my opinion. A 5.7" Nexus 6P would be perfect.
ViscaElBarca, 24 Apr 20166" - 7" The bigger screen the better!You need to get a job dude..
5.5" with good bezels. So far, the only phone with great dimensions at 5.5" is the LG G3.
My sweet spot is 5,5" been tested with many device from many brands and It fits for me. But I also like 5-5,3" because I can easily reach all parts of the screen with my thumb for single hand usage.
I think screen size between 4.7 - 5.0" is the best and battery sizes of nothing less than 3000 - 5000 mah/Li-po batteries should be recommended on the next generation phones/mobile devices....yah!!!
I want 6 inches but it must be 80% screen to bady ratio at least. Iphone and sony screen to body ratio is too small so keep away from big size and small ratio phones.
Rana, 24 Apr 2016My opinion is a mobile should be accessable with one hand comfortably.Remember this,most peopl... moreOne handed is also prone to more drops and ruining your mobile so regardless of size I always hold with both hands. And big screen just lets you do more and be more engaged in what you're doing. I love my 5.7" screen. It's the 950XL. The bezel is barely there and it's really slim and light. There is a one handed mode and very useable but it's a huge investment so I don't take chances. I think that's where the live tiles come in handy for me. I unlock with the iris scan which has gotten incredibly fast since the latest build and I see what I need to see. My grocery list is there, everything. If I do need to type I can just dictate. But again I never was a one handed user even with my smaller phones.
I think its a thing of personal preference.
Some people prefer more screen state while some prefer easy handling
But after all its a matter of compact body.I think there are two sizes :
1. A width around 69-70mm in which most of the 5-5.2 inch lies.
2. A width around 75-76mm in which most of the 5.5-5.7inch lies.
Above and below this lies some geeks and for them iPhone SE and mate 8 lies
G2-USER, 24 Apr 2016It is not about the screen size, it is a matter of screen to body ratio, and the handset dimensiontrue
I have a 5" phone and I think this is as much as I can go without having one-hand problems.
The bigger the screen, the less privacy you have. I'm not into showing off at all.
Also, having a big screen eats up the memory and drains the battery.
So in my opinion, a 5" FHD screen is the best choice. QHD is for VR and in normal use you don't even see the difference.
4,7" with extremly small Side Bezels and Little, but not Too small top and bottom bezels. These two should also have the Same size. Galaxy a3 has a very good Design imo
Rana, 24 Apr 2016My opinion is a mobile should be accessable with one hand comfortably.Remember this,most peopl... moreMuch too small for me , as I move around alot during the day I use phones for browsing , emails and even typing documents. under 5.5 is not easy to live with. If you work at a desk and have access to a pc all day than maybe you can live with 5".
A phone should be fully operable with one hand. So, I guess 4.7" is the limit. Do you remember the HTC One X? It was perfect in every way. Too bad they did not produce a phone like it ever since...
5" or maybe 5.2" max is the best size for a smartphone... Makes it bigger than 4.5,.4.6" if media consumption is considered and also makes it better for one hand use.. Although 5.5" can be the future if actual bezzless designs turn out to be good.
My opinion is a mobile should be accessable with one hand comfortably.Remember this,most people forgot that it's a mobile phone ; neighter a TAB or Laptop. They think bigger is better. So i think, 4.5" with 72% screen to body ratio & lees than 120 gram + under 7 mm thickness will be a perfect smartphone for handling. Think about it. (to All)
