Honey, I Blew Up the Smartphone

Smartphones are getting bigger and bigger. It was only 4 years ago when the iPhone’s 3.5″ display was one of the biggest available on the market. Now the iPhone’s display looks miniature compared to today’s line up of smartphones. The HTC Evo 4G was released with a 4.3″ display 2 years ago which was “hummer size” according to Steve Jobs.It didn’t stop there, considering Samsung had introduced the 4.5″ Samsung Infuse 4G last year. Samsung then stepped it up with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus that included a 4.65″ display. Before the Galaxy Nexus was even announced by Samsung, HTC one-upped the company with the HTC Titan that featured a 4.7″ display. I just got a hold of the Samsung Galaxy Note which has a 5.3″ display; the largest on a smartphone yet. It will only fit in loose fitted pants and looks plain silly in my jeans. The Note is targeted for those looking for a phone close to the size of a tablet, but do not want to carry multiple devices with them. The phone also includes an S pen (a digital stylus) which is convenient due to its large screen. The truth is, the Galaxy Note is enormous compared to other smartphones of the average user.

The real question is how big is too big? In my opinion, 3.7″ to 4.1″ is the sweet spot for most users. What screen size do you use and/or prefer?

    The Samsung Galaxy Note shouldn’t be considered a phone. it looks like a tablet that can be used as a phone ^_^
