Smartphones: Does size really matter? I personally think 4.5 to 4.7” are perfect and I would not like to have anything bigger or smaller than that, but as it seems I will have to sooner or later… Personally, I think 4.7" is very easy/comfortable to use maximum limit, one can get along with 5" screens but that is pushing the limits for a smartphone. However, anything above, they are all small tablets IMO, no matter what fancy name are given to them. That is one reason, when last week I was forced to replace my S3 (my little daughter smashed it on marble floor ), I didn't pick up 1520, it just felt too big, despite all other things I liked about it. On side note, despite slightly misleading later part of the article's title, in this case bigger is not better IMHO.
