4" is ideal screen for me, nowadays. I have a Samsung Galaxy 2 (4,3"), wonderful phone, very light, thin frame, but a little too big. Let's see if the Galaxy 3 (coming soon) have a thinnier frame. In that case maybe a screen till 4,5" could be a good choice
my Motorola Atrix is almost the same size as a 4s and i get a bigger screen and a better spec phone. But i like the size it is now we just need edge to edge screens. Samsung im looking at you!
i think 4-4,3 inchs are perfect for smart phones.
it is nice to web browsing and watching videos.
Damn right. These phones are getting way "out of hand". I cannot carry the Samsung Galaxy S2 in my palm discreetly (I own Nexus one). I have a man size palm btw.
I hope men aren't buying big phones like cars to compensate for a small penis.
I find the 3.5" ideal for driving. It fit the shirt pocket and you can easily connect the hand-free mic/earphone.
Many are reluctant to use bluetooth due to report on harmful radiation. 4" and above will not easily fit the pocket.
iphone is small....but want much bigger screens....should go for tablets....big screen phones, neither here nor there....
In my Idea the best practical screen size is Iphone because you can scroll your finger everywhere easily.
schivmeister, 15 Mar 2012I find it utterly ridiculous that phones are becoming tablet PCs. I never want a phone that I ... moreAbsolutely agree with you. My right hand: briefcase, my left hand: smartphone. So I have to acess all features with my left hand only. For videos, pdfs etc: tablet.
The I have used 4.3" / SG2, 3.9" / N9 & 3.5" / i4S. IMHO ideal size would be 4." Thank you.
I am expecting one with scrolled flexy-retractable monitor equivalent to 8" display, with dual mode LTE (GSM+CDMA).
it depends on needs of every one, but it is clear that if you want to watch videos or play games the bigger one is better for you!!
and the problem is moving that device !! i think it is a little bit hard to put it in your pocket !
imagine that you seat in a car and your mobile rings !
it is hard to pull it out ! :)
I think Samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket is the best size for phone & screen both.............phone should be below 130mm long & below 69mm wide and screen size should be 4.5--4.65 inches
3.7- 4.0 is de best. Anything bigger is simply unreasonable and plain stupid. Go buy a tv or something
I also agree that 4 is the minimum you should go for smart phones. Also another factor is important and that is the ppi. With higher ppi in bigger screen everything would look crisp. I am surprised that Apple could not present us with a bigger screen with the current iPhone ppi (which is 330)where ease Sony have already done that on a bigger screen 342ppi on a 4.3 screen in Xperia S. I just bought one and it looks fantastic on 4.3 screen. Thanks to Sony of course.
