    The problems is a lot of people have never spent time with a 4.3 in screen and when thinking about them or seeing them in the store ignorantly think- "oh wow that's to big". Heck I used to be like that. Now I want to try bigger just to see how I'd like it.

    I wonder what the Asus PadPhone will be? 5 inches, 5.5 inches?

    23%? That's sounds like almost a 1/4 of the market. Wow, popular size eh? I can live with 4 to 4.5, anything less is to small.

    The size ranges in the poll were poorly chosen. There's one category for 4 to 4.29 inches and another for 4.3 inches and above.

    The real takeaway is that people prefer large screen sizes, with 65 percent of respondents preferring a screen size of 4 inches or more.

    I was unsure with 4.3 inch size screen before I picked up the Thunderbolt and now I can't imagine going back to a smaller screen. When I use my wives phone (Dinc) it feels so tiny.

    I picked up a friend's iPhone the other day and the 3.5 inch screen seemed way too small in comparison with my TBolt.

    It is because most of the people are kids or under 30 years old (going crazy to get the latest). People like me, over 50, need bigger screens in order to read what it is there.

    I'm only 28 and I love the big screen. Although my mom is 58 and she's really excited about getting my Thunderbolt when I decide I want to upgrade in February.

    4.3 or bigger at this point. I'll never go back down from here, but there is a point where it will be too big. I could live with a 4 inch, nothing less.

    I won't buy another with a smaller screen. As long as 23% of phones made have a 4.3" screen, we'll be fine

    Since bigger is better, what do you think of
    the Samsung Infuse's screen?

    4.5" in the new 4". By next year, we will not think anything of 4.5" phones.

    But the next step is that everyone is going to edge-to-edge displays. A 4.5" display would fit into the iPhone 4 form factor once the bezels are no longer needed.
