    Well feelings are subjective. Also, I'm pretty sure Samsung would still make their phones out of plastic if they were making big phones. That's just their style and it holds up well. Don't you use an otterbox anyway? I don't see how you can even feel the plastic through that.

In the iphones case, size clearly doesn't mean cheaper.

    Bigger and bigger to me is like a hollow gimmick to make u believe you get more when you actually get less when it comes to advancements in the hardware itself. But as i said before, that's my view, and up until maybe 2009/10, that was just about where we all were when it came to our interests. Media and gaming really were the only real changes that disrupted this pattern. And as i always believed, media is secondary ro good communications.

    It doesn't hold up well. Have you read long term reviews on the GS3??? The quality is just not there. And yes, i use an otterbox or seidio case, but that would just make the phone ridiculously larger than it already is. Apple struck a perfect balance, the problem is that i like the Android ecosystem better. And i think there are plenty of people like me who wish there was a 4in high end device. It would sell, imho of course.

    It would sell yes but would it sell the 3million in 30 days like note 2 or the 20mill of the gs3 in like 3 months

    And i am in no way saying they should stop making your much cherished gs3s or galaxy notes. But to truly believe that my desire is rare is a serious lack of logic and common sense.

    We both don't know the answer to that. Its the same way they didn't know if a 4.3in screen would sell when they first introduced it in 2010....the evo on sprint.

    All we can really say is that the desire is indeed there! Apple enjoys huge revenues because or a 3.5 and 4in device. That's got to at least mean something.

    Not really as again how many buy it specifically because of size and not ecosystem or ego or early investment or any other reason

    I think that 4.3 is the best screen size out there, personally. Once it pushes closer to 5 it's just not easy to fly in and out of a pocket. I've always been a fan of smaller phones for this reason.

    I talk to people who are buying phones all day, I also talk to manufacturer reps and carrier reps regularly. From my experience that you are in the minority. That's not just my random opinion, its feedback from all parties involved.

    Size isn't the only reason they've been successful. that's been pointed out several times in the other thread. iOS users haven't had a choice period, and many of them have been quite vocal about wanting larger sized screens, from younger people for gaming/media/web browsing to older people who want easier to see/type on.

    Android users DO have a choice, and they overwhelmingly pick larger devices. You can argue that they don't have a top spec small choice, but the reality is, the majority of the consumer market doesn't care that much about their phone's specs. The community here is a very very small subset, and the ones who want that top spec device in small size is small even here.

    The one hand argument comes up a lot. My SGS2 is not huge by today's standards but it is still much bigger than any iphone. I use mine in one hand sometimes but have realized that I have set up all my quick access style apps so they are in just the right place on my screen. I keep them on the bottom usually with different categories for each screen. This pretty much allows you to use any larger phone one handed quite easily.

    I keep mine relatively clean as well. Apps that I use most stacked on my dock.

    Most of the time I use mine one handed. To the OP, there is no "best" size, it depends on the person really.

    Are you using a launcher for your apps that you scroll through on the bottom? I should try that again.

    +1 only I took a different phone path. I am pretty sure I will max out at 5 but if the note has too many 'wow' features, I can adapt

    Not sure what you're trying to say. At no point have I (or anyone else) ever said that nobody cares about size at all. Rather, that small high performance phones aren't in demand by many. In fact, In the same post, I said "and the ones who want that top spec device in small size is small even here." Which clearly shows that SOME people do find that to be important.
