    Default Why no 4 inch or less quad core or dual core phone?

    I so look forward to OEMs doing a four inch equivalent of the top end Android phones, but it seems the whole industry is moving towards the bigger screens...

    Is there any hope for "girly hand" me?

    Isn't Samsung launching something with the model number GT-I9300, which is a 4" HD phone with dual core? That's the rumor anyway.

    Cause they can cram a bigger screen into the same size phone so why wouldnt they? The only phones with larger screens that are kinda big are the Galaxy Note and some of Verizon's "Slate" smartphones.

    Htc one X was too big for my hands, based on the time I tried it in a store today...and I'm not being anal about it but I wished the HTC one V had the same insides.

    I've read the new droid Incredible 4G will be 4" like the di2. I hate anything bigger than 4, and in fact, the 3.7 original droid Inc is the perfect size in my opinion.

    As much as I loved my original DInc, I felt it was slightly too narrow. With the silicone case the width was perfect. I think a phone with a 4" screen is the sweet spot for me. That said, I couldn't hold out til the end if April, so I ended up with a Rezound, and you get accustomed to the 4.3" screen pretty quick. Couldn't imagine going any wider or heavier than this though...

    I'm actually liking my HTC One V so much even though it's a step down from my Nexus S in terms of screen size, I guess I'm more accustomed to the smaller phones than the bigger ones.. At least for daily use

    When I went to the AT&T store to look at the Galaxy Note I had to laugh at it because it was goofy big. I have had an EVO and Rezound, but I liked the size of my Nexus S 4G the best. The extra screen real estate is nice for some things but I wouldn't want to have a phone that big all the time. Especially now that I have an iPad, I really don't need the extra size on my phone.

    What a pity, HTC One V is the single-core, and the CPU is not so good.

    I think the manufacturers are just not able to put dual-core or quad-core processor in 3.2 inch phone . So they are making such a big phones.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the theme of this thread. However, despite the 4" screen the Droid 4 is still too big IMHO.

    It's not so much the size of the screen that's important to those of us who want our phones to be a bit smaller. It's the overall size that's the most important thing.

    I love my Incredible 2 and for me the size is perfect. But the specs are becoming outdated (no LTE, 1 Ghz processor, etc.).

    So I'm really looking forward to the release of rumored Inc 3. Still with a 4" screen, LTE, and a 1.2 Ghz processor. I'd rather see a faster processor, but at least it will be an improvement and I expect it will get me through the next couple of years.

    I even had a Thunderbolt for a while but it was just too thick, heavy and bulky for my taste. Even though HTC did a fantastic job of putting a 4.3 inch screen on a relatively small phone overall. If the Thunderbolt were thinner and lighter, I wouldn't balk at all about the 4.3 inch screen.

    I agree to a certain extent. I think that it is a great size for a touchscreen device. But if you are in the habit of watching movies, significant web browsing, or playing games, more screen space is an added bonus. But for me it would be a great size because I don't do a lot of that stuff on my phone anymore.

    I agree it's sad there arnt more high end phones under 4.3" especially with android being the platform of CHOICE. Sprint does have the lg viper which is a dual core phone.
