    Default Are all phones gonna be 5 inches for now on?

    Because every rumored phone Ive searched for so far seems to have a 5 inch screen or higher so are phones just going to gradually get bigger for now on or is 5inches the screen size stopping point?

    I don't think there is a stopping point. I heard rumor has it eventually people will be walking around with tablets up to their ears and pockets on jeans will have to be increased just to carry them. ;-)

    If ALL the flag ships are 5",then they will succeed just like this year ALL of them were 4.7"+ Until there are smaller flagship to compare to larger ones or they hit the too big threshold, these phones will stay this size or get larger. Right now if you want high end, you go big. This year if you want high end you will go even bigger. Until something changes, they will be bigger in 2014 and so on and they will all be successful because there is no smaller high end option.

    The high end phones with 1080p screens are going to be 5 inches or more. Anything with 720p or qHD will be smaller. It's the way the industry is going right now. As long as people keep buying bigger screens, OEMs will keep pushing them. Just like televisions.

    Blackberry 10 came out and the z10 has a screen size of 4.2" and that is the "flagship."

    I kinda expect 5" to be the standard size in the future, I do think that borders will be the next thing to change, I can imagine phones with edge to edge screens on all directions (well, maybe a little at the top for a speaker). I think that would make carrying around these large screen phoned much easier.

    I think this is BB last gasp for air.They still have a loyal following. It will be interesting to watch, but if the Windows phones keep improving there will be little room left for BB to be successful.

    Oops off track there "ADD" kicking in, I have a Note 2 and have a bad habit of buying the latest and greatest. This phone is big. I love it but will not want a phone any larger. This is the max size for me. The iPhone 5 feels like a tin toy in my hand and the screen is just too small.

    Moto X phone reportedly will come with a 4.8 inch screen, and the M7 will supposedly have a 4.7 inch screen. There may be hope yet.

    This reminds me of when the original Dell Streak was announced. Everyone said it was just too big, and yet it carried a 5" display. Amazing how it crashed, and burned yet now almost every major flagship will be this size. Maybe Dell was just ahead of it's time here.

    I have a sneaking suspicion the Streak failed not because of specs, but because of consumer perception of Dell: cheap, bland PC maker. Who wants a smartphone from that?

    It's looking like 5 inches or something close will be the standard. I have the HTC DROID DNA which is 5 inches and it seems to be that perfect size. Other than being taller, the DNA fits in my hand about the same as my EVO 3D which is only 4.3 inches.

    Bigger is better. Looking forward to a 7" HTC evo someday.

    I have giant hands though. Can't even buy a pair of gloves that will fit them. Lets not even go into my size 16 wide feet.

    Actually I did. That is until I saw the iPhone 4. I always loved the form factor, but couldn't get into Android at the time.

    If this rumored X phone goes 5" or larger, it's looking less likely to be my next.

    Not sure where I read this because I must have read close to 10 articles today on this phone, but... I read 5" display, yet physically smaller than the S3. Works for me.

    Not much of a choice if you want a smaller high end android phone.

    4-4.3 would be my sweet spot, but looks like ill have to do with the 4.7 HTC One.

    CURIOUSS:rolleyes:
    In my own opinion, I don't think so as every users has their own choices. The purpose while mobile companies create different sizes, style and design of phones is that users have different choices. People's interest, choices, liking and decisions when it comes to gadgets do change and that's one of the reasons why mobile makers don't just settle to a single style. Most people these days, do go with what's in and hot I suppose.

    It seems we are not getting or seeing all the phones out there. Samsung alone has several phones such as the Galaxy S3 mini a GSM only model, Galaxy Axiom a us cellular only. These are 4 inch screens. Hello Samsung we are calling from Sprint US.

    Depends what range you are in..

    Mid-range phones and phones aimed at 'developing markets' will mostly be smaller. Top-tier devices do all seem to be heading that way...

    As an aside, I saw a guy waiting in an auto repair shop surfing the web on his tablet.... his 20 inch tablet... lol... and I thought that the iPad was too big...
