    Upon reflection, when I meant that the Mega sucks, I meant that the Mega would suck for me. Otherwise this goes back to my flip phone argument I used earlier in another thread. My mom would hate an iPhone, arguably the easiest device to use (one of the reasons they are so popular.) My mom just wants a *phone* and that's it. She won't even text...in fact, if the thing would have a rotary dial, so much the better...lmao. My point with the Mega is that I do not believe that the Mega's size is the only factor in why that phone may not be selling...when looking at the specs compared to a Note 2 (forget the 3...) the Mega would not be suitable for folks like us that actually use the S-Pen, as well as the other features that would lack in a phone like the Mega. Others may not even care and just want an entry-level phone that is good enough, and has a very nice size. But yes, I should have clarified that the Mega would suck for me...

    I prefer a smaller phone. Portability, ease of use with one hand and an element of discretion are what is important to me. The S4 mini was perfect for me in that regard. But I am not that into watching video on my phone that much so obviously your user case may be different.

    What I will say is this. Of my personal acquaintances and friends who have switched to large screen devices, all of them have been happy with the move, and none of them would consider moving back to a smaller screen device.

    Totally agree with this as well. I have an iPhone 5S and the Moto X. The moto X battery life is amazing and the phone is barely larger than my iPhone.
    I thought I would carry 2 devices all the time and have the best of both worlds. The iPhone is basically collecting dust at this point.
    The Moto X is my fav android device ever. (although I DO like the S4 a bunch)
    iOS and Android are BOTH great. iPhone 6+, Nokia 1520, 2014 Moto X, iPhone 6+, Note 4..
    Currently using 64GB Samsung Galaxy Note 5 & iPhone 6 64GB on AT&T

    I finally got to play with a moto x yesterday and today! It feels good in the hand; not too big or too small.

    Display looks really good, and the phone felt pretty fast too!
    The camera is nothing to write home about... but I guess is good enough.

    I still prefer my Galaxy S4 much, much better!!! :thumbup:

    This is what I've been saying for the past year!

    And yes, the Moto X is my favorite phone by far. The size is much better than all the other flagship phones out there.

    Us girls have it easy, we can get a phone with a big screen, and then just put it in our purses when we don't want to carry it. :P

    Honestly, I was a little worried about getting a Note3 at first because of my tiny hands, but I love it, and I can actually use it with one hand for 99.9% of things. But I get that such a large device isn't for everyone. Hopefully you find something that works for you OP; there have been a lot of helpful suggestions in this thread. Unfortunately, I don't think they will stop making large devices any time soon because of how useful they can be in so many different applications, so just stick with what you like.

    Try a Moto X. Same screen size, smaller frame.

    I for one love big phones. I wish the Galaxy Mega 6.3 had Note 3 like specs.

    Me too! If the thing can't fit into my pocket, then it's a tablet. I know the Mega could fit in my pocket, but that phone is for people who need something simple/affordable. The Round is supposed to have the same specs as the Note 3, but I'm good.

    Trust me, you're young now, but after you hit 40 or so, your eyes don't let you read the smaller screens even with bifocals. Enjoy your smaller screens now while you can, but be glad that they CAN make large screens for those of us who are "over the hill."

    I'm 40 and I've been visually impaired all my life, I still don't want a **** sized phone. Besides post-Gingerbread you can make fonts bigger and there are also font size apps in the store (I set mine to 140%).

    I carry my phone in my pant pocket, my HTC One X is hitting the limit in size, any bigger than that and I'd have to go back to a holster. However the Moto X and Nexus 5 with larget screen seems to have a smaller frame real estate, otherwise "mini" versions are what I'll probably go for on my next upgrade.

    That makes reading a slight inconvenience when I want to read PDFs and/or Kindle books. I enjoy reading books without an e-reader/tablet and the Note 2/3 makes that possible without setting fonts to 200% larger.

    I am nearing 40, and I do have most if not all of my vision left. However, stashsmom is right, vision will be an issue with me after 40. My sister is much older than I and she needs glasses for reading. I have to do what I can to prolong my vision as much as possible while making it convenient for me. I have big hands, or rather my hands are not tiny. (I'm not an orge...lmao.) If the phone can fit in my pocket, and the specs are good then I will use it. The market dictates that we get big phones, and people like myself want them.

    A phone is only big because of the bezel on the side and other parts of the phone. If phone makers made the bottom bezel smaller, then they wouldn't have this problem.

    I don't think its the screen size that makes the HTC One feel big, the addition of those speakers make the device taller and the weird placement of buttons make the device seem larger. The power button should be on the side like the Nexus 4 and Samsung galaxy phones.
