    Which phones running Android have the largest screens?

    I'm looking to buy a phone, but after doing so, am going to root and install a custom ROM. Buying the latest and greatest device on the market isn't exactly what I'm after anymore. Give it the right ROM, and it can run anything. With that said, I do want a pretty large screen to work with.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Mega
    HTC One Maxx
    Sony Xperia Z Ultra

    Of the 4, I'd recommend the Note 3.

    Also, moved to the Device Comparison forum. :)

    Note 2 if you want to spend a bit less money.

    International tablets, I think the 10" Samsungs can be had in phone versions.

    If you want a tablet that can be used as a phone:

    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition)

    10 inch screen. Look at the model numbers, only some work for calling.

    Thanks guys, i appreciate the comments. However I'm not looking for a tablet. While they are (obviously) much larger, a phone should be reasonably close to the size of a phone :)

    Also, tablets shouldn't take pictures. IMHO, it's very annoying to see people snap pictures with a bigass device in their hands. That's a phone's job.

    Actually it is a cameras job to take pictures..........

    Okay I'm kidding a little, but I am curious as to why you believe tablets shouldn't have cameras?

    The largest phone without entering tablet category that I know of is the Galaxy Mega 6.3inch. The closest competitor is the Sony Xperia ZL with 6.1 inches I think.

    Ah, you got me there! XD

    I'm begrudging of tablets w/cams because I've seen people use them in the stupidest ways.

    For example, I was at a concert hall and this one woman was holding up an iPad. She was trying to take snappies of all the action (which you can bet were going to Facebook). Meanwhile, everyone behind her gets to enjoy the screen glare, and watch her fumble around with a product as big as her head. Bad etiquette in my opinion, looks silly too.

    Ah yeh the tablet shutterbug, frequently with a 10inch iPad. :rolleyes: It's not as if the camera is much good, often worse than many cellphones.

    I wonder where you draw the line between what is a phone and what is a tablet. e.g. the 8inch Galaxy Note 8 N5100. This thing is massive when holding it to your ear, yet they sell it as a phone, it's sold by carriers who don't normally sell tablets. It's in Samsung's phone product range, by the fact it's called a "Note" and not a "Tab". So we have a euphemism for devices like this, "phablet". :D

    Nope, it's in their "Note" product range. Their Android phones are all "Galaxy" products. ;)
