    After Steve Jobs made the ill comment about phones being to big to hold. What do you guys think? I personally love the size of the DX (the gf is showing interest in the Dell Streak). So what do you guys think? Will/Should phones go bigger than the DX or 5" Dell Streak?

    I think the Dx is a good size not to big and i dont have huge hands at all. At first before i got to hold it i thought i wouldnt like it but it feels great you cant really tell how big it is the way they designed and distributed the weight

    I love the size. It's thin enough to allow for the extra screen space (which I love).

    I agree 3.5 is pathetic but idk about 6 the size of the X seems good and anything larger would be too big IMO

    For the size the graphics are horrible compared to an iPhone 3G. It's not worth the tradeoff.

    for the hype of all iphones, being stuck in a box for 4 years is not worth the trade off. I would rather use a sidekick than a iphone.

    I love the size, will make football games watchable during College season while not at home. I am a big guy with really big hands, bout time i got a phone that fit my hand. It is thin enough that it fits my front pants pocket better than the old HTC slider phones.

    IMO the screen is the perfect size! Not too big, not too small. I hit less buttons in error while typing and the display is gorgeous for apps/games/etc. I've had an iPhone for 2 years and I always keep it in my left front pocket. X goes in the same place and with it being as thin as it is, it really does not feel like I have anything larger to lug around (insert dirty joke here....pervs :p) lol

    Different sizes suit different applications. Jobs is nuts.

    I dont think bigger is better. Cuz some ppl will have size issues.

    Bigger has its advantages like most ppl already mentioned.

    The X surprised me at fitting in my pocket....lol I read where some ppl had issues with that. Its longer than the average phone, but it doesnt push out of your pocket when sitting down. Someone was afraid of that happening.

    And I had room for other things to fit in my pocket, thanks to the X being thin and narrow.

    Graphic are not horrible. Like the pics on the X isnt horrible. Some phones might be better at some things. Thats fine. But it isnt that bad to say its horrible.

    Like someone thought the X took bad pics....until they wiped off the lense....

    And comparing to the iPhone 3G....really? The X is horrible to that? I woulda accepted the iPhone 4.

    I think for the general population 4+ inches might be a little big. I don't think this phone will sell 3 million in 3 weeks like the iPhone 4. That being said, I love the size. I think the 3.5-4 inch screen is probably the sweet spot for the masses, but, who really just wants to be another face in the crowd?

    That has nothing to do with the screen size, iphone sells 3 million in a couple of weeks because it is the iphone. It could be a piece of crap and still sell, I could honestly see the iphone selling even if it had troubles holding a call, oh wait!:D

    In my mind the DX is the perfect size. It's the largest I'd go without thinking it was just a downplayed underpowered tablet ;p

    Please!... no larger than 4.3" PLEEEASE! lol This screen is already huge and on the limit of being a bit too large for my hands. I can't imagine having a 5" screen around. Steve Jobs was completely wrong when he said that no one would buy a phone with a relatively "massive" screen size. Take the look at the sales of the EVO and Droid X. We'll also have to see how the sales are for the Galaxy S lines (which will be difficult due to the late launch of Samsung Fascinate). Stevie is going to regret that comment, I believe. What else can he really do with the screen? Has he essentially reached the highest point? The only thing that I can see him doing now is making the screen size to 3.7" for next year or even perhaps 4".
