    The G4 is aaaaalmost upon us, but is the Size putting you off? I mean, small phones are a slowly dying breed (at least in the high end spectrum), but is this phone too big?

    It's a bit bigger than an S6, but not as big as a Note 4. Personally, I don't mind the size of the Note 4, but I've been a Note user for a few years now, so that might just be my adapted perception (to me, an iPhone 5S is super tiny!).

    What about you?

    My M8 would probably be close to the same size physically. I don't think I would have a hard time with the device. I am pretty sure this is the largest screen I could tolerate. I didn't care much for the screen size of the Nex6.

    I agree! The N6 was taking things a bit too far :P That is almost tablet-looking.

    I mean as far as total phone size this isn't on the high scale. It's about the same size as the S6 and others. I had an iPhone 5s then went to a 5.2" screen and could never go back to the little 4" screen!

    I went from a Note II to an LG Optimus G Pro, so this phone shouldn't be any different, haven't had a bit of trouble out of my G Pro so I have confidence that the G4 should be an even better phone.

    I'm used to the G3 - holding it easily and comfortably in my hand right now - so the G4 will be fine.

    I can only go by the size of the G3. For me it was a drop too big for one handed use, so I'm sure that the G4 will feel the same way. But to be honest, I'd rather get a G4 than most other phablets as like the G3 it is a great phablet that isn't pushing it too far into the unhandable zone.

    The note line is great and the nexus 6 is awesome. For the first time I even like stock Android. But both phones are too large for me by a lot. While the G4 is far more manageable for me.

    It's funny, I used to be the guy who always got phones that went with a large screen. People used to say that my 4.7" evo 3d was huge when most phones were only 4". But for me I found that while I love phablets, they are just too big for a daily driver. Too tight in most of my pockets and too big for one handed use. They are great for playing games or watching videos but are hard for me to use every day while on the go.

    Maybe one day I'll change my mind and the G line from LG will probably get me to switch faster than the note line. But my sweet spot is about 5" and I'm glad that with Android I have many choices to choose from.

    large sized phones used to deter me, my first android phone was an HTC Aria (3.5in screen) and even i thought it was kinda big coming from a blackberry curve!

    Slowly i've learned to love bigger phones, with the max size being my G3. But i don't think i'll mind the G4 size

    I had two of the biggest phones, Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus and no issues with the size whatsoever.

    What's amazing and love about the G series is how LG squeezes the display in that body.

    No, have had the G2 since release day and I'm ready for a larger screen. So I'm happy about the size.

    You want a really big phone deal with a Nokia 1520... That was frigging huge...

    But no.. The size isn't a concern for me.

    Read about the same size. Not THE same size.

    The g3/g4 is a perfect size..I would imagine the curve and leather enhance the g4

    No, I don't think G4 is too big. Some of the smaller and thinner phones are actually a bit awkward to use.

    I felt the same way when I first got the Note 2... and I even bashed people for getting the 'ludicrously huge' original Note. Four iterations later, and I'm still hooked.

    It feels too small for such a large screened device in my opinion. Honestly I truely believe there is no better "holding" phone in the 5.5"+ terrority. If you've held the G3 you understand what I mean. It's hard to believe the screen is as big as it is. The curved back and slight curvature of the screen make this phone feel small in a sense. I came from a iPhone 6 plus to my g4 but I've owned a note 4 and g3 as well. My wife was amazed how my screen is the same size as her 6+ yet the phone is perfectly sized. She said she'd like to sell her iPhone and get this because it would be more comfortable to use without giving up screen space.

    It's only too big if you're unwilling to give a larger phone a try. After owning a G3 for so long, the Nexus 5 feels small and the Nexus 4 feels tiny. And one of the good things about the G3, and likely the G4 since it's only slightly bigger, is that it packs a big screen in a relatively small body. I can comfortably use the G3 in one hand until poor app design forces me to reach my thumb to the top left portion of my screen.

    I'm 6' , wear jeans on the tight side most days, and carry my G3 in the front pocket. The G3 is the perfect size. I tried out a friend's N6 - bigger and even that was ok for front pocket but pushing it. 5.5" is the sweet spot for me. A little larger would also have been OK.

    Edit: I'm using a dual layer case.

    I already have a tight fit with the G3. I don't see why they made the top and bottom bezels bigger. I'll have to ahndle one. Maybe no case and leather might help.

    I think you'll be pleasantly surprised of the minimal size increase over he G3, the phone just feels better all around.

    I just made a cardboard cutout with the posted dimensions of the G4 and showed it around the office. As expected, half of them thought it was too big and felt weird to hold (then they take out their iPhone's and you realize why). The rest were a mixed bag of 'yeah, I could use this' and 'I don't think it's too big but I wouldn't get one for myself'.
