I think your average sized phone for holding a 4.3 inch screen is perfect. But if you can make the screen bigger without increasing thephone's size, that would be great.

Yeah, they can do that easily if they make the mobile screens a more rectangular type. . .

If the Bezel is thin enough you can go up to 4.6" no problem!

the overall footprint and volume is what really matters.

screen size does not absolutely dictate device size. the galaxy nexus has a 4.65" screen, but due to lack of physical buttons, a thin bezel and a very thin device, it works very well.

if the technology continues toward smaller bezels and thinner phones, i could see a 5" screen being perfectly comfortable.

Even 5.3 inch isn't too much if you use Flygrip

To me it's 3.7 to 4.5 . However I felt that my mom's galaxy note is too big for a phone too small for a tablet . BTW 3.5 inch wasn't that bad like some Fandroids claim , I used a 3.5 inch screen on my iPod and n97 . Try the Xperia x8's 3inch screen , typing on it makes you go nuts

it is completely depends on your needs . 4,3 inch is good for me (because i have big hands :D) also 4,5 quite comfortable but above that would be not good.
