from 3.7 to 4.5 is fine for me, if with a QWERTY HW keyboard, not bigger than 4.0
i think best size is 4" but i like my samsung GS2 with 4.3". it is very light. i don't think i ever use iphone becuase of screen size. it is more for women because it is very easy to use.
I love Galaxy note.It is pocketable,the bigger,the better.while reading text on a webpage u never have to struggle.that's the best part.
I find it utterly ridiculous that phones are becoming tablet PCs. I never want a phone that I can't hold with one hand, and on which I can't swip across the entire screen real estate with just my thumb.
The conclusion of the study is incorrect. The hypothesis might've included "ideal smartphone screen size", but the survey only gives you "popular smartphone screen size".
Got Samsung Galaxy Note with 5.3" and love it, couldnt go back to smaller one.
Quite comfortable with my Galaxy S II at 4.3 inches. Since I'm now accustomed to the large screen, I find anything below that screen size repulsive.
The Galaxy S II is pocket friendly (it easily slips in and out of my jeans pocket), if you use it without some bulky protective case.
Until recently, I was skeptical about big screens. I thought 4.0 inch screens were huge, not to mention 4.3 or 4.5. But when I got my HTC EVO 3D, I changed my mind. My preferred screen sizes are between 4.0 and 4.3 inches. Bigger screens than that are not as comfortable and smaller screens are too small for my fingers. 4.3 inch screens are perfect for gaming, youtube videos and everyday usage.
I use a Note. Before note it was S2. The difference between Note and S2 is like the difference between a 42" TV and a 32". I would prefer Note over smaller S2 Screen. Beyond Note anything bigger would be cumbersome.
I own galaxy s2.. Ideal for my use.. Wouldn't be satisfied with smaller screen..
for me 4.0" are enough, not too big for my pants and comfortable enough to see every details of pictures,, ^^
I reckon the ideal size should be 3.5-4 so that it can readily fit into the pocket without much hassel.
Having said that, the resolution of the screen should be good enough (say 480x800)to make the texts more crisp & readable while browsing.
I owned a Samsung galaxy s1 and i want a galaxy sII i feel its better for me.
