    While I know there is no absolute right or wrong answer here I was wondering what most of you think. I think we can all pretty much agree that 3.5" or 3.7" screens are too small.

    The real heat is in the 4.0" vs. 4.3" debate.

    I find 4.3" phones to be too physically large for daily handheld use. For me, 4.0" is the sweet spot.

    I find both too big, but I'm 14 :p
    I prefer 3.7"

    I really can't vote on this. I think the 4.0" is the best size, but I prefer the 4.3" on a personal level. I'd carry something larger like a 4.5" or even a 5". I'd even carry a 10" or 7" Tablet around if I could make calls and texts messages on it. Anyway... that's my two cents.

    Given that your "beloved" iphone4 does fine with a sub 4" screen, I'd argue that statement only applies to geeks drooling over hardware specs.

    I guess reading is not your long suit. I said earlier that I am NOT an Apple fanboy and that I'm a long time user of Android (which I love). That, however, doesn't preclude my ability to objectively take not of the fact that their screen resolution and overall clarity kicks the shit out of most of ours. So my question was and is 'why can't an Android manufacturer market a worthy competitor to the 326 ppi retina display.'

    It's called "objectivity."

    Look it up.

    I'm guessing English is not your strong suit. Use of quotes is a common indicator of "sarcasm".

    Regardless, the vast majority of smartphone owners are apparently fine with a sub 4" screen.

    I prefer 4.0". I've had 4.3" and it's a tad too large.

    the funny things people say when discussing screen sizes

    I *like* my 3.5" WVGA screen, but would prefer 3.7" WVGA

    I would like a 4.0" qHD screen for texting tho, but none out there

    Whatever fits in my pocket (I guess 4" then).

    I can't vote, because the pollster doomed the poll by making an assumption about what we would all agree on. I find my OG Droid with its 3.7" screen to be the best size for me. A 4" screen might be okay, but a 4.3" screen (or larger) is too big for me - and I can't imagine being comfortable with either in my pocket (not that my Droid is in my pocket either).

    This thread topic looks this way to me:

    What's your fav color?
    [ ] red
    [ ] blue

    We can all agree that the other colors in the visible spectrum suck, so the real debate is between red and blue.

    moving on.... /thread
