Default How big is your phone's screen and how big does it make your phone?

Just curious, what some considers too big.

I have an LG Optimus 7 with a 3.7" screen and my phone is actually a little bit bigger than an iphone. I felt the size was good for me.

the HTC Titan (Windows phone 7.5) with the 4.7" screen was announced and for some reason I want that phone now. Its gargantuan for a phone (possibly borderline too big), just a tiny bit bigger than a GalaxyS II (which looks to be one of the larger phones out there), but its nothing compared to the Dell Streak which shouldnt even qualify as a phone......

yes i fully support Windows Phone 7. Im eagerly awaiting the mango update.

Honestly I'm not sure how to answer this. I have 5 phones active right now and they have varying screen sizes. I'd say the OS makes a big difference. For instance on the HTC Arrive with the new Mango update, the OS overall feels really comfy on the display despite it not being 4+ in size. But for Android on the Nexus S 4G or my Photon 4G, I'd have to say that I need the 4" screen.

My last smartphone was my Droid X and it was 4.3", which was perfect IMO. My mom's Bionic has a very similar feel and she loves it. I have a dumbphone now

People can adapt or get used to about anything. I thought my Evo 4G was too big when I got it. Today when I use my wife's Evo Shift with it's 3.6" screen, it feels tiny and I find myself squinting for no reason when using it. For those that like to carry their phones in their pockets rather than using holsters, 4.7" may be starting to get too big...

I think the poll should be:

How big is your smartphones screen.

3.2
3.3
3.4
3.5
to
5+

I'm in between 3.6 and 4.0. My old incredible at 3.7 felt small compared to 4.0 on my new incredible.

4.3. I used to think it would be way too big to carry, but now I look at my sister's iPhone shitbomb sized screen and it just looks stupid. I won't go any smaller than a 4" screen.

^That just plain dumb, dumbest dumb thing I've seen.

My phone is 4.1", loved it. Bigger screen is a welcome addition but the problem is 16:9 is too wide to fit in pockets. My cousin got Desire HD 4.3", felt too wide IMO, getting it out of pocket will be a pain. Something like Acer Iconia Smart 4.8" with 21:9 aspect ratio looks promising

3.2" atm but I would prefer 4"+. I'll suck it up for another year and upgrade my phone near end of 2012, assuming the world doesn't end by then.
