    6" phone would be the max for me.

    I agree with you. But there are no cream of the crop phones in a small size. Although, I'd say that "for me," the Moto X is cream of the crop Enough for me. But outside of that, it's a ghost town of small flagships within android.

    Yea, the Moto X is cream of the crop. The display is sexy, the specs are awesome. There is nothing low end about this phone. I think that Google and Motorola are working on fixing that. Google is getting ready to rock the cell world via Moto.

    I agree! I really really want this phone to succeed! I think it's an everyday man's machine (and woman lol). Sometimes I hear mixed reports but I do know that the market can be very mean to very good things. And as for the Moto X, that is just about my only fear with this device.

    I think the biggest thing they have going for them is that Google is backing this thing, and owns Motorola. They have spent a ton of time and effort making it a very sexy and functional phone. I love mine with a passion.

    I would love for a Nexus 5.5. Big screen and stock Android would be perfect. I can handle my friends Note 3 without a problem so 5.5 would be even better.

    With what smart phones can do I think the screens are way to small. I have since abandoned my smart phone for a dumb phone, tablet and mifi. I save alot of money and now my tablet activity doesn't get interrupted with called or texts. I can upgrade to anything with wifi to get Verizon LTE speeds on any device be it my laptop or tablet. Now my smallest screen is 7 inch.

    Thank you for that! There are all types of sizes for each individual.

    Default Are phones getting too big?

    I don't believe that one size fits all, but I do believe that one size fits most. They usually call that "the sweet spot." For android OEMs right now, it seems that hovering at 5in is their sweet spot that they're pushing.

    That's the only part I disagree with. I think the effort should be placed on something 4.5 to 4.7 like the Moto X, and then a 5+in phablet as a nitch device for those who want big. Also, there's no reason that both devices cannot be cream of the crop and have identical specs.

    In my world, a GS4 would be 4.7 and a Note would be 5+. The way it is today, it's hard to differentiate why 2 5in+ phones exist in the same space, from the same manufacturer.

    Apple thinks about this all the time when they make a new phone and complimentary tablet offering like the iPad mini or air. They want to make sure that their devices don't overlap and cause the lineup to be illogical.

    So to me, android OEMs are chasing their tail more than anything else when they opt to go bigger just to say their product has improved over the year before. That's why I call it gimmicky! Nothing irrational about that view, agree or disagree.

    I think smartphone screen sizes are progressing like laptop screen sizes. HP and Dell started shipping massive laptops at the beginning of the 2000s - 17 and then 19 and then 20 inches - but the hype has largely died down. Most people in the market for laptops that serve general purposes generally don't buy anything outside of the 13-17 inch range. You still see a lot of 19 inch laptops on the market but they're more or less considered niche items.

    There are an increasing number of 5.7-inch and 6-inch phones on the market, but I think those phones will remain niche products going forward. But I think smartphone sizes are really stabilizing around the 5 inch mark and there's good reason to believe the iPhone will finally reach 5 inches soon or in the coming years. 5 inches is a really good size for a flagship phone. Most people are still floored by the idea of a 5 inch phone but I think most will warm up to it. I remember seeing a 17 inch laptop and wondering why someone would lug it around and now I'm envious looking at 17 inch laptops from my 13 inch MBP.

    Big screen phones dont work for me.
    I like pocketable phones that dont dont really feel like they are in your pocket, hate holsters.
    I like phones that are easy to use one handed
    The min. size screen I like is 4.5 the max would be 5.0,.... 5.1 would be to big.Thats why the Moto X is the perfect screen size and perfect overall size for me. .

    I agree! My only issue is that I think all OEMs should focus their flagships in this size. If they want phabs, that's great! There's a market for it! But everything high end is 5+ and that's not cool!

    Just got my 6.4" Z Ultra GPE. Honestly its big but its the perfect size for me. It may be a little annoying in a front pocket but I have big hands and a big head so it just feels like the right size.

    Yeah I think most heads are just too small for some phones but phone can't get too big. The market tells us what is right.

    Is there anyone out there that agrees???

    There's a lot if buzz over the new Sony Experia Z1 compact over at CES because it's top of the line in a 4.3in form factor. I think the time is coming that it's all coming back to reality. OEMs r realizing that "minis" shouldn't mean "mini specs" too!

    To me, everything over 5" and under 7" is a phablet.
