    The biggest talking point with this phone seems to be the size. Id be curious to see some numerical opinions!

    I myself have been waffling: at first I thought "Oh, way too big". Then this picture made me think its not the much larger than similar phones and I was getting it for sure!

    But this pic has me wondering. Looks pretty giant in her hand:

    So: What do YOU think about the size?


    If you havent seen yet, engadget has a gallery of 50 some pictures.

    well, i`ve held a EVO. it didnt hurt my hand (i have medium size hands I think). the HD2 windows phone...my hand could get cramped. it the same screen size as the evo but wider. some say this phone is skinnier than the evo but longer. if this pans out to be true...perfect fit!
    particularly with that hump in the back thats designed for you to put your index finger there to relax the phone on it (obviously). plus engadget states that its "shockingly light" or something similar to that :)
    which is perfect. its going to be noticeable when you talk on it (but who does that anymore) i use my phone mainly in the car through the speakers, or once in a while on speaker phone. my thing is...im a man. i need to have the biggest $#%^!!
    sorry im competitive!
    im looking at u EVO!! and uh...looking over you iphone.
    DROIIIDD!!!

    I made a little cardboard model of it (without the hump) and it feels good actually. Im 6' 1" and have slighty bigger than average hands I would guess and the size feels fine. You should make a little model and see for your self. The size is 0.39"x2.5"x5.01" if i remember correctly

    From the looks of that first comparison pic i dont see how the screen is as big as the evo with the glass bezel that goes around the screen.

    If you have larger hands this phone would be perfect. I can imagine that the Chinese workers who assemble this phone are thinking that it's the latest Android tablet...lol For me, the Evo is to big, so this is a monstrosity.

    i have big hands so i need a 4.x" screen. right now, typing feels like trying to kill fleas.
    this is not too big for me.
    i dont care about pocketability, i will use a holster for this thing.
    i played with the hd2 and fell in love with how it felt in my hands
    super duper excited that its FINALLY coming.

    you said holding evo 4g didn't hurt your hand but HD2 could get you cramped? Really, are you serious?
    This is odd since HD2 is about 15g lighter and smaller everywhere except in width which is barely 1mm wider. Hard to believe that you held both in your hands.

    I personally think it's a bit too big. I wish Motorola would have been able to cut off a bit from the top and bottom, like just past those 4 buttons, because to me, they're empty space. What I like about the HTC EVO 4G is that it really does use the space well. I do like the thinness of the Droid X though.

    A little too big IMO! If Moto would have just went with the same touch buttons as the original Droid, and ditched that Bezel with the Hump and all, they would have had an absolute killer on there hands. I know some will say it has to be held, but there are just too many things that make me weary, the size number 1, the buttons, the mirror bezel (scratch city) and the hump on the back with the 80's styling camera.

    See I think the size is perfect, granted I haven't held one yet, but if it is anything like the EVO I will like it. I don't particually care for the mirror bezel as you said, or the hump but I think I can get over it. :)

    Slightly bigger than the EVO to me means it is too big, now mind you I have large hands (6'3") and the evo felt a bit cumbersome to me the actual deciding factor is pocketability and to me the Inc is perfect. If I were a belt clip person, I'd be all over it but I can't stand belt clips so I'll be sticking with my Inc.

    Perfect size, I've held the EVO and it was great. I'm sure the X will be just as nice. I'm 6"2 w/big hands so I'm looking forward to getting this day 1....

    I was all set to buy the Incredible until I walked into the Verizon store and saw it was the same width as my Verizon XV6800, a Windows Mobile phone with a dinky screen. I want bigger!

    Then a coworker showed up a few days ago with the Evo 4 and I was disappointed in the size ... a little bigger but not enough bigger.

    Ideal would be if they went from 16:9 to 16:10 aspect ratio and made it just a big wider.

    The original 4.1" size that it was thought to be would have been a great size IMO. I held the EVO and played with it one-handed. Due to arthritis, carpal tunnel, and not having large hands it caused pain in my wrist. It is just a little too wide. I'm not gonna make a decision until I can actually get the X in hand though. But I still think the Samsung Galaxy S is gonna be the perfect size. For me anyway.

    I played with an evo today and a HD2 and they look huge but when i held it it did not actually seem that big compared to my incredible. I cant wait for the X to come out and be able to get my hands on it

    This poll is incomplete, it needs at least a "none of the above" or a "Is it way too small :D"

    LOOKS too big in the pics, but I'd have to hold one to know. I've held my buddies Evo, and while it's not that bad, I think something closer to a 4.0" screen would be pretty optimal for me. I have kind of smallish girl-hands, and the width of the Evo is almost too wide for me to comfortably use it one-handed. I can do it fine on my iPhone and my other buddies DInc, but I think closer 4.0" would be the best spot for me. But I'd have to finger-eff everything first to see how it feels in my hands.
