I still remember when years ago, phones were getting smaller and smaller. And now with the advent of smartphones, things are getting bigger and bigger again. I'm sorry but 5 inch is to big. I feel 4.3 - 4.5 inch would be the best sizes.

Probably has bad battery life as well, seeing as how all smartphones are currently.

Brightness on screen is a plus point for sunlight visibility, but for the final quality of the image and to be more pleasant to the eyes is the inverse that counts. For me, a less bright display scores more, and yet AMOLED panels performs best under sunlight.

A device isn't "mobile" if u hav t plug it into a charge point all the time! Really boring all these "advancements"! Im not buying ANY smartphone till there's drastic improvement in battery life, none of you companies r getting my hard earned cash for your fancy gizmos which die down in a few hrs!

come on ... 4.99" is too much for a phone. Sometimes I feel S3 size is big too. Keep making quality products with a 'better' battrey life.

Try playing graphic intensive games on that 1080p 5-inch screen and see how fast it will drain the battery. It's not practical. Phones will end up like laptops where it has to be plugged in all the time.

I recently compared my lame old Lg optimus with my friend's top range Galaxy S3 and was shocked that my optimus at min. brightness appeared mch brighter than the S3 at full brightness, (when the S3 was at min. brightness u cud hardly see anything n i ALWAYS use my optimus at min. brightness 2 save battery) I was quite astonished wth d result!

ironic that everything is silly or stupid until Apple does.
IPhone is pertect for one hand (typing)?
Don't think so. Everyone that i see in nyc who uses iPhone (made up primarily of kids, women, old people) use two hands with the iPhone so close to thier nose since they can't see anything properly on their tiny iphone screen.

By getting rid of those thick, fat, ugly, and mostly useless bezels like the one that the iPhone has, 5 inch screen is definitely possible without hardly increasing the current smartphone sizes. Unless all u do is txting, social, and games, smaller screens are a real pain in the butt and bigger screen are always welcomed...

Grow out of the tiny iPhonish screens like u grew out of the Converse... What's the point of dumping the much more useful physical qwerty keyboard for frustrating soft keyboard if u are still stuck with a tiny screen??? Get out of the trendy and form of function sillyess and let's get real and practical...
