Says you. Just because you don't want a phone larger than 4.5 inches doesn't mean no one else does. I'm 6'4" 225 lbs. & I was a wide receiver in college. In other words, I have very large hands. I've held the 5.3" Note & it doesn't feel unwieldy at all in my hand. I could even see myself with a slightly larger phone. Everyone I know so far with the 4.8" SIII swears by the size & say they would never go back to anything smaller & they are all average size people. No need to go applying what works for you to everyone else. To each, his or her own.
