Default Too big for small hands?

I'm thinking about buying this off of craigslist pre owned off contract.
I'm used to 3.5 inches, And i'm just wondering, is the 4.3 inches really big for small hands? I don't have super tiny tiny hands, but my hands are smaller than average, and i'm just worrying its going to feel big and cumbersome. Would I be better off with going with a 4 inch screen, or do you think I will be fine with this 4.3 inch?

Also, does this phone have the tv animation when you lock the screen?
And does it have face unlock?

Maybe before you buy, go to Walmart or att and look/hold one and see how it feels.

I love mine.

I went from a Nexus1 (3.5") to the SGS2 and while it is bigger, it's not a huge leap. I also looked at the Skyrocket which felt much more cumbersome at 4.5", but that's more the bezel and thickness.

The TV style animation was introduced in Gingerbread and Face unlock is part of ICS, it's not phone dependent.

I know those features came with the updates, But not every phone company allows all of the features. Not every phone with gingerbread has the tv animation, It depends if the manufacturer wants it or not, So that is why I was wondering. So does the s2 have it or not?

Mine does, but if you are buying a pre-owned model there is a chance it's been rooted and flashed with custom firmware, then it would depend on what the previous owners put on it. I'd also make sure you are getting one with a clean IMEI/ESN.

I have small hands, like my friends will introduce me and show the new person my small hands. Recently they've been called "reptile hands.." okay..
But fits perfect for me I can type with one hand!
