4.0" is the most optimal in my point of view although I use 4.3" and I am aiming for 4.5 or 4.6".
I agree 4 inch is the minimum screen size where is best for web browsing and sms typing, thats why i would not buy iphone or anything smaller than 4imch
The larger the better, with high resolutions, scratch resistance and it must fit comfortably in my hands and also inside my pocket.
T Oh again you are doing it for Apple. Soon iPhone 5 will come with 4 inch plus screen and you will start saying Apple did it again.
Some time ago I read an article in your site telling 3.5 is the best size, now you are changing it to 4 to 4.5. Please stop these, otherwise you will loose millions of visitors to tour sitr
I think 4.65 inches would be a perfect size,even galaxy s3 will have the same size
I am not a girl, but I think 3.5" is the perfect screen size - pocket friendly but not so small that text is unreadable. Also, smaller screen have better ppi.
3 months back i went to buy a smartphone for my wife, my wife preferred a larger screen...i have 2 choices...htc sensation xl or samsung galaxy note. i showed her both and naturally she opted for Note! its not that much normal for women to go for that much larger screens but its not uncommon here as well. i think 5.3 inches of hd screen was a sweet spot for her even 3 months back and its practically very very easy to handle Note because of thin profile and lightweight!

The study is for UK and US, mostly on Caucasians or Africans. they have a bigger built compared to Asians so im guessing it is right for them 4-4.5 but if your less than 6 feet in height 3.5-4 would be ideal. i am 5'8 and im using a n8 with 3.5 screen.... tried the HTC Sensation and it was too big for my taste. so 4" would be the right fit for my hand.
For be de optiml size is between 3.7 and 4.3. The best screen size i think it would be 4 inch.
The thinnest possible bezel/edge or none at all would make a big difference, there's still a lot of "wasted" space on fronts. I'd prefer having a home button on the side and having a bigger screen instead, or a smaller phone with the same size screen.
though this is quite off topic i just want too share my sentiment on what i like on a phone particularly in OS. I love android the only problem is the battery hope android phones focus on the battery a very good battery please that we can use and maximize the potentials of the phones such as brightness :)))))
