What is the perfect smartphone display size for you?

We recently brought up the question whether smartphone displays were not getting a little too big for us to be able to use them comfortably. Sure, having the additional real estate has its advantages...

You're wrong bro, my both phones have 2.4'' screen size and 3.5'' screen size respectively, yet I voted for '4.3'' and above' cause I like it bigger.
All about choice bro!!

not so sure about that. people like me may have one size on their phone but wants a bigger/smaller one. in my case i have a 3.2" display but i definitely want to get a 4.0-4.2 display.

I didn't. I have a 2.9" phone currently, but I am aiming for a bigger one, preferrably over 4" :P

Until battery pack gets even larger, 3.5-3.99 seems like the perfect solution for me. Otherwise, bigger the better

One small thing, I do think it should be between 4-4.3 instead of 4.2 (who make sa 4.1 or 4;2 inch touch screen?)

4.3 - lg revolution, moto x2, sam charge. I like the size of the 4.3's.... maybe even a little bigger..... but I don't want to be holding a Galaxy Tab or iPad up to my head..."Can you hear me now?"

4.3! and im sure all those smaller iphone voting people vote smaller bc they dont have bigger... just wait till the new iphone comes out with a larger screen. this poll will look drastically different.

I have an iphone and i voted between 4.0-4.29. I am not devoted to any one phone. I like all the different OS. I switch phones every 3-4 months. Why? because I can and it makes me happy

I want the option for just 4.3" Anything bigger than that to me is pushing it, and would not be comfortable to carry around all day.

When edge to edge screens start popping up, 4-4.3" will be perfect for most people. Now we need to get them 1920x1080.

I agree its not always about the size of the screen, it depends on size of bezel also

4.5" is perfect for me because my phone is more for entertainment than for actual talking. It's a mini tablet size with phone capabilities.

Hercules! Hercules! Hercules!

4" would be the best for me as I have quite medium sized hands :)

It's not the Size that counts, it's what you can do with it!!

j/k. Bigger is always better! 4.5!

I have large hand and have a 3.7" screen now. I think that 4.2' would be the sweet spot. Large enough to display all the goodies and web content, yet small enough to hold comfortably for extended amount of time while still fitting in a back pocket. IMO

4inches is probably the perfect size. 95% of the phones with 4.3in. screens all seem too bulky or too long. Granted, some are thin but length and width wise they aren't as pocket friendly as say a phone with a 3.5, 3.7 or 4in screen is. The only phone I've seen with a 4.3in screen that doesnt look unattractively long or wide is the HTC Thunderbolt. But it is still kind of thick depth wise. So across the board for men and women 4in. is the perfect screen size for a smartphone.

I like my phone to fit in my pocket. If I need a large screen I have a tablet or laptop. These phone are too big these days. 3.5 is perfect.
