What is the perfect smartphone display size for you? (poll results)

What is the perfect smartphone display size for you? (poll results)
Some say that bigger is better, but this may not be the case when it comes to a smartphone's display size. It is true that modern smartphones come in all shapes and sizes, some of them even going beyond the 4.3-inch milestone, yet somehow, such extremes are starting to look and feel a little too spacious for users to work comfortably with. That is why we were curious to know what the perfect display size for you was, and the votes from our poll are already in.

The results indicate that the majority of you, or 40.55% to be exact, find screens between 4.0 and 4.29 inches to be perfect for them. Anything in between 3.5 and 3.99 inches is what 31.5% of our readers prefer, and 24.86% of you are fans of displays measuring 4.3 inches and above. We were quite surprised to see that only 3.09% of you will fancy a smartphone with a screen size below 3.5 inches, which is not good news for the petite HP Veer 4G.

(June 2011) What is the perfect smartphone display size for you?

Less than 3.5 inches – The smaller, the better. Navigation is easy and the smartphone fits nicely in the smallest of pockets.
Between 3.5 inches and 3.99 inches – Small enough to use with ease, yet big enough to read fine text.
Between 4.0 inches and 4.29 inches – The extra real estate proves useful when viewing photos and videos.
4.3 inches and above – No display is too big for my hands.
