the age old story. its not the size of it, its how you use it. Perosnally my Note 2 suits me perfect.
Guys, Motorola is planning to do just that. First of their product under Google's influence might be showcased during their event in May. Well, they did mention we might not have top of the line specs, maybe not Snapdragon 800 but 600 and 2000 mAH in 4" device. Also Motorola had tendency to use AMOLED display.
That would suffice.
It's not necessarily the size, but the PRICE that remains to skyrocket out of reach for the average consumer!! Phones are already at $1000? If we don't speak up, we'll be forced to take out a loan that's equivelent to a car loan for a "pocket" sized computer......
companies like samdung is running out of ideas only way they can keep their sales up is by launch phone with large screen and promoting it as something out of the world.
Ideal smartphone size should not be more than 4.5".If anyone wants anything more than that go buy yourself a T.V.Samsung Galaxy S II was the only phone which I felt was perfect and is comfortable for everyday use.
ganaz, 20 Apr 2013not good specsHi Bro,
Note that the screen size i prefer is from 3.3 to 3.5 only. I think 3000 mAh woud be overkill plus it will make the phone bulky. No need for tegra as gaming experience on a small screen is not satisfying. I'm Not sure though if 720p display can be achieved on a 3.3 screen. =)
Bigger screen is better there is no dout . We are not like small children to difficult to carry ,hold and use any smart phones less than 6" and around 200g.If you can not afford big phones just buy galaxy y like small phones. Who and why this idea has been initiated to step backwards ? Nowadays phone is not just for talking and it has become a combination of computer ,camera, tv,radio ,gps ,technology ,invention and sooooo on.understand you baby Gsmarena!
Thin phones mean you can't get a good grip on it. Try taking pictures with a thin phone.
Why do u need a powerful cpu in a phone for? To play games? Get a handheld!
Battery life is more important and more practical. We're at an age where I want Wifi and GPS on all the time. I don't want to have to keep checking the battery level all day.
I am looking forward your reactions the day manufacturers will provide you a ghettoblaster sized smartphone lol. Will someone request them to make a new smartphone with the size of a ping-pong table? Is bigger really any better?
More seriously, from 3' to 4.5', it is still Ok. Below, it is inappropriate for web surfing, even less than a hour. Above, it is plain absurd, as you would have some difficulties to carry them in a jeans pocket, and not everyone has a purse. Of course, having better batteries would be much better, but there is no petition about it.

You get a high end high priced phone and 2 months later a another one is released with an update on software. Then you find out that you phone will not be updated. Do they want you to go buy the new phone. What of all the money you spent on the one you just bought. It is unfair. Only few of them (Apple & BB) are loyal to their customers. The petition should be for them support our high priced phones and not just dump us somewhere. Support your smartphones anywhere in the world as long as it is connected to a network.
I feel that the petition should be against the companies that do not provide any support for their existing smart phones. Not for making the screen size smaller.
why are you singling out Sony? 4 out of 6 phones mentioned are Sonys. Meanwhile it is Samsung that keeps increasing the size!
You need not ask for vote or signature,competition among the manufacturers and market share will force those manufacturers to be rational.
HTC One S comes close to an ideal great size and general good power, good look and feel. Take away some of the excess real estate and you could even put a 5inch screen there without increasing size. Totally agree that there is room for some containment to a professional looking and engineered pocket friendly size phone without compromise. The market beckons for it.my 2 cents..
Galaxy S3 MINI and S4 MINI are totally crappy phones with low specs compared to S3 and S4
S3 mini is just a little better than ace2
phoneaddict, 20 Apr 2013Signing this petition is a stupid idea. Let the manufacturer manufacture whatever size they wa... moreare u dumb? petition is for also making phones with small profiles but with high end tech in addition to the existing lines.... not only small profiles with crippled hardware as it has been for now... it is not to stop ur 4.6" 5" high end phones...
present phone is xperia ray, for it's size. haven't updated yet because can't find any phone with design and capability. Thought of Moto Razar M, however only LTE and screen not so good. Want a quality, top end phone, with small profile!!!! Dont want a frying pan in my jeans pocket.
