    I would think the main rule is, if it don't fit into your pocket easily, it is ridiculous.

    Of course, my pockets are so full already, I won't be able to fit a very large phone.

    what if someone wanted pure android, the fastest software updates, on a phone that is not bigger than the current nexus 4? coming from the original galaxy s, I really can't see a reason to pick an android phone that is not a nexus. agree about the xperia z though, it is a looker lol
    there actually is quite some room on the bottom of the nexus 4. so a bigger screen would be ok with me as long as the bezel is not larger (more importantly, not wider) than the n4.

    uhh no dawg i never said "yes i dont want a bigger phone and because i dont want one everyone else should not". come on now.
    Not arguing with you at all, I'm not focusing on you, just in general I think a lot of folks do this, especially in the phone world. I use my Note one handed for some stuff, but mostly I have to use two hands. And I'm cool with that. I understand some folks are not cool with it. Whatever floats your boat and everyone else's boats is cool with me, that's why I love all the choices.

    Not everyone has the same size pockets. If I wanted to wear a jacket everyday with pockets, I would carry an even bigger phone!

    the thing is, after many people migrated from other android phones to the nexus line (myself, included) they really just want to stick with it. so even though there are many choices, the nexus's size, in particular matters to many people (myself included).

    I get that, I have the N7 tablet, and I rocked the GNEX for 7 months, but dropped it for the Note in a heartbeat. I loved that phone, but I love the Note more for everything it offers. So I'm not one of those who has to have a Nexus device. But if they make one that is 5", I'll be happy to join the Nexus crowd again.

    If this turns out to be true, sign me up. I have very large hands and not-so-great eyesight. I do not fear the five inch beast.

    As long as they aren't afraid to put enough battery on it to be useful.

    I think we are going to settle in right about where we are, the 4.7-5 range which is fine for most.

    Bigger than five brings you to phablet territory then bigger than six you are in tablet territory.

    That 6.1 is really going to flop a bit. It is just too much for most everyone. It is a nice offering, but very few will go with it.

    Then you also have to consider the concepts we saw at the last show with the flexible screens....

    Tough to pinpoint where all of this is gonna shake out.

    This year should be interesting with a five inch s4, a better Nexus, and whatever Sony brings to the table. I am not writing the other companies off, they just need to show something cool in February.

    most folks continue to assume that what they like is what should be what everyone else likes. You said this...



    I have small/average hands and love the size of the Note. I don't like phones smaller than 5" any longer, but that is my personal preference. I don't assume anyone else feels this way, because it is my own opinion. And I'm sure there are plenty of large-handed folks out there with iPhones and Android phones smaller than 5". Hell, I see most people in my area using flip phones still!
    Flip phones? Where do you live? Siberia?

    the key point in this article is this:
    Shipments of smartphones with screens 4.6 inches or larger grew to 82.7 million units last year from 1.8 million units in 2011, says New York-based market-research firm ABI Research.

    I think you are bang on. I would also add that with the larger phone becoming so popular that many people are finding tablets to be less of a necessity. I find that I use mine much less after getting my Nexus 4 while my wife who has a Blackberry uses her tablet all the time. If you have a note 2 you really don't need a tablet unless you are replacing a laptop with a Transformer Prime.

    Im used to my note2 size already. Once you get used to it it really doesn't seem as big. I dont speak on phones much so I'm rarely holding it to my ears. A nexus 5 incher would be great especially edge to edge display

    since 5 inch phones will take over, all i can hope for is a bezel "as small as possible". i can't go to iphone (just saw my friends today). android is beautiful...

    Yeah I know but was not terribly impressed. I want to see more before I bump them up in class.

    How about we see how it stacks up with the other offerings at that show in February

    i think cpu/RAM wise i think the n4 will stand up just fine with the phones of the near future. the next big thing IMO is advancement in materials.

    By the same token, everything in the last six months will.

    We are getting close to the end of the line for Cpu and ram bumps. This is the year that should put the focus on display and battery life.
