I'm using the sgs2 (owned the o2x, desire z, b7610 etc) and below 4" is not cool if not havinga hardware keyboard. I think the ideal size is indeed about 4 to 4.5". (If the bezel is very thin, perhaps sth like 4.7 is still okay)
4.7 inch (+/- 0.1 inch) is about ideal, at least for men. Big enough for more comfortable browsing, without having to struggle for one-hand operation. For ladies, 4.3 might be more suitable.
I have an EVO 3D well 4.3 with qHD is very good ,i like big screens.
I'm using a SGS+ and I think that a 4" screen is the ideal for a smartphone. But it depends on the user hand. Peole with big hands can easily manipulate a smartphone with a 4,5" or 4,7" screen.
I recently switched from an iPhone 4S to a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Screen not large enough to my liking.
AnonD-1035, 15 Mar 2012Most people are complaining the screen size of their smartphones aren't big enough. Well, I su... moreI am amazed how iPhone fans are so adamant and so sure that a 330 ppi 3.5" LCD screen is the future. The iPhone 4 had big issues with its antenna and was finally "enhanced"with the 4Ever. I am thankful that we have better choices. For your information, the Note is only 5.3" 285ppi Super AMOLED HD screen that has brilliant rendering. It even has an ACTIVE pressure level sensitive Wacom S pen stylus making it a portable digitizer for sketching our image editing efficiently than using a finger.
With Apple's pride, they won't go for bigger screens for their iPhone design. They will most likely just put up the pixel density and not even switch to AMOLED tech.
most people with whatever screen size they have are happy with it. So this news is fake?
I'm waiting for a phone under 60mm width with 480x800 screen with a good CPU & camera. All phones under 4" seem to be really low end!
Not everyone wants a huge phone.
I'm a girl.
Have girl hands.
Galaxy S2 is more than perfect for me. Not too small, not that big..
So yes, 4-4.5 is ideal
up to 4" screen is good for cellphone, phone should be like phone. big screen phone seems to be like ipad.

Guys-If it fits in my hand or even if it's a bit too big it's good because all i care is the computer power.
Girls-not bigger 4 inch don't give a thing about CPU.
Very good survey
In fact the size of screen is my choice to decide which handset I must buy. In my opinion bigger is better and 4.3 is appropriate.
I have now sgs2 4,3 screen its god very.i hate nokia 5800 3,2 .nokio n 900 3,5 screen goodbut it was to big.sgs to 4,0 very good .but sgs2 the best .the biger is better.
Why can't manufacturers make high spec, dual core Android phones with 3.7 inch screens? If there was one available from any manufacturer I would buy it straight away. Not everyone wants huge screens!
4.5 to 5 would be the ideal size. good for browsing and watching videos...
It all depends on your need. I am using xperia Arc and when I compare my phone with 4 inches screen or less it looks tiny for me compared to Arc. If you are used to bigger screens you will neglect small ones. After using Arc with 4.2 inches screen I would go for more bigger ones. Its easy for typing and good for videos.
A phone with 4.5 inches HD screen, good sunlight legibility, Gorrila glass, Aluminium body, touch sensitive controls, good battery back up, stereo speakers and all the latest goodies. If anyone can make such a phone, I believe it should beat everything else out there.
