I used to have a Galaxy Mega 6.3 and I LOVED watching videos, playing games and surfing social media on that bad boy. The only reason I sold it was because of the slow processor and the camera wasn't very good.
6 inch screen more or less is by far the best option to view text reading & for browsing surfing with eye relief & for best gaming portable console like experience & as well for immersing movies & acceptable viewing of photos & films

Hate the ergonomics of it and wish I had a slightly narrower phone. 70mm or under seems ideal for my use, people with smaller hands who also don't usually use their phone two handed would benefit from a 67mm or narrower model, even.
Nah.. Its too big.
How about use the same size as 5.5 and 5.7. The thing that make me excited to this S8 is the new chipset on how powerful it is in both gaming and others with newer cortex-A73 and Mali-G71 GPU it should run 2x faster than S7, the camera that shots like DSLR im hoping for 16mp dual pixel,the 4K screen and a large 4,500mAh battery

oh Common Please This Is Not Making Any Sense ? What's The Use Of Creating Samsung Larger Screen If Some Of The Customer Doesn't Like It ?
s8 coud be be made slightly larger (wider). people need time to get used to a new size
after months of use:
7.1cm body width of s6 is ok.
7cm body width of s7 is of course no problem
can try 7.2cm body width for new models. bring some tiny increase in screen size.
keep trying to find the perfect size. the test should be carried out as actual daily use for period of months. Not just simply picking up the phone for 1 or 2 minutes in store. Users' habit, skill, feeling can change over time after practising.
Finally, a 6.2 inch version, my dream come true !
Now, it would be perfevt with a microSD port and a removable battery !
Some of this could be that they are going with a taller aspect screen 17:9? like the Mi Mix. Not something I'm into since I think 16:9 is tall enough, even with soft buttons.
I wouldn't buy a 5.7" phone even if it had over 90% SBR.
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2016Wow, that's so true. Brainwashed fans Yeah....cause every other company doesnt do something like that

Should've opted to also upgrade their OS to Windows instead of just upgrading their hardware. Good hardware + inefficient, unsecure, dated, and buggy OS = average quality device.
Switched from Oneplus 2 to 950XL a couple months ago, and everything just works now. Plus there's actual security, advanced features, and the most advanced and useful UI (live tiles). I just wish I switched sooner.
i agree with Samsung's move. Almost none is buying anymore 5.1 in phones. Most people want big phones. So samsung make a 6.2 or even 7 inch phone for the new wave and a mini version of
