The first 3 are a bit too much exaggerated to carry around as phones!! I think phones should utilise screens within 4.5"

Actually the 4.65 inch screen makes perfect sense for the ICS phone. Without any physical buttons, the screen would be able to take up more of the handset making it the same size or smaller than the Infuse.

Similar to Acer Iconia Smart 4.8 inch screen which is actually narrower than a regular 4.3 inch display.

Exactly! That's the thing I am talking about twenti7. Too many people see today's cell phones and look at the screen size. When they think of anything that is larger than 4.3, they freak out.
When in reality its not the screen itself that usually takes up the most space, it's actually the buttons bellow. Look at the G2x for example, it's 4 inches but it's actually not much shorter than the Droid X(4.3). There's a huge gap in the touch screen and in the touch buttons. You remove the buttons and make room for the screen, you can easily put 4.6 inches of screen on it.

You are absolutely right. I've been trying to tell everyone about this. Most people think that their phone will likely get the ICS upgrade, not true because of the longer screen and the internal OS touch buttons. The screen will likely be as wide as a current 4.3" screen or maybe a tad thinner but it will be longer, filling up the entire front side of the phone.

How long can one person talk about BADA OS
It's inferior and s**t in general.

Hey did you just read the article where it says bada outsold both WP7 and Winmo together ?
If you think bada isnt good, then you havent tried it.
Look, you should watch some videos of bada 2.0.1 on youtube. Remember though that these videos are beta version and they will be more laggy and buggy than the final version.
bada is a really good OS : )

Windows is just now starting out. If they don't pick it up this year, they will have problems. But there are other manufacturers that are coming on board. Acer, Fujitsu, LTE and Haweii (or however you spell it). Bada is even more late than WP7. And windows are barely making anything. So good luck with bada lol.

???
bada is not more late than WP7. Actually bada launched before WP7 launched, and they are selling better than WP7 and Winmo put together.

I can't say anything about bada 2.0 but samsung wave II and those low-end sammy phones' OS is just too bland, boring and very basic.
It's not s**t, I was just in a grumpy mood :D

Agree that the low end bada phones, aren't very interesting. But Wave and Wave 2 are really good though.

its not hard to outsell a not so hot smart phone OS with a feature phone OS.

Agree that you can outsell WP7 with almost any OS but, bada is not a feature phone OS. It is a smartphone OS, and actually has more features than WP7 and more features than IOS.
I can agree that at the moment Android has slightly more features than bada, but when bada 2.0.1 come out, bada will be the best OS around.

Seems to me that since it has taken so long for the sgs2 to get to the US it is going to be a bad idea to buy the sgs2 because it will be outdated rather quickly for us here in the US. Please give your opinion but it looks like I'm going to say sorry sgs2... your too late. -unhappy att customer

Well, I think one of these new beasts will be SGS2 for US. Then I'm fine with that as it's better than original SGS2.

phone tech is booming rapidly, all phones are getting outdated within months, just like how comps were during the mhz-ghz race. besides, hardware is outpacing software, most current software doesn't even fully utilize the available hardware. just settle on a design you like.
