I had a desire z with 3,7" screen and i sold it due to small screen, as a phone its ok, but if I have to look at photos or pdf docs screen is realy too small, was looking for something with 4" even waited for the new iphone to come as rumours said it might be a 4 inch screen, but it wasn't so I bought a sgs2 4.2" screen is great, now i would even consider a bigger screen if a phone size stays the same, something like galaxy nexus, but sgs3 is just around the corner so I just might wait.
Most people are complaining the screen size of their smartphones aren't big enough. Well, I suggest those people to wait for a phone that sports a 10-inch screen. Or how about a 100-inch Saxxxxg Gaxxxy Note?
As a matter of fact, when the iPhone was launched back in 2007, most people were COMPLAINING about the BIG screen of the iPhone. Bill Gates, a long-term rival of Apple, even said 'I like to dial numbers with one hand, and maybe I'm the only one.'.
As for the iPhone, from the 1st generation to the 5th one (iPhone 4S), all are equipped with a 3.5-inch display. I'm using the 4th generation one, that is to say, the iPhone 4. I can manipulate it with one hand with ease and I'm happy with it.
I just can't figure out why people would love to have a bread-size phone on their faces. They can't control their phones with one hand because of the unnecessarily huge screen. What a pity.
To me, 3.5-inch is OK, and screen size up to 3.7-inch would be nice. Otherwise, go for a 100-inch smartphone. :O)
By the way, I'd love to know whether Bill Gates would say the same thing about screen size of smartphone. Or maybe he hates his Windows Phone-running smartphone. (Most of them >3.5") Perhaps he loves smartphones with the screen size below 3.5 inches so that he can 'dial numbers with one hand' as the screen size of iPhone is already way too big for him.
Sarmad, 15 Mar 2012I must say that a phone must remain a phone and its screen size should not exceed 4". I l... moreI agree with you 3.7 inches is about right but for me anything over 4 inches is too big..The original Samsung galaxy s was just right for me.
I must say that a phone must remain a phone and its screen size should not exceed 4". I love phones with 3.7" screen size, they are very portable and pocket friendly. Size of hands also matter, maybe people with bigger hands need bigger phones but generally a mobile phone looks good at max 4".
Study shows ? With what demographics ? If a study is done for neanderthals it'll surely show that 10.1 would be ideal. C'mon gsmarena. You're not a newspaper that you have to fill up columns. It's all relative to palm size as someone has said already and that's why women prefer it smaller in this case :) and I concur that 4" is big enough already if you're holding it against your face and for upclose viewing purposes. Better screen res is what is important along with daylight readability rather than a bigger screen.
i think 4.3" is the perfect.good for net-surfing but fits in the denim or formal trouser as well. it will be handy too then.
though i am using a phone with smaller screen, my next phone will be with 4.3" with quad core processor hopefully.
4-4.5 is perfect for me I have big fingers and hands. I had iphone 3GS but 3.5 inch is too small for me. I hope next iphone will be 4-4.3 inch.
