    I say Focus S. I use the HD7 and I think the screen is border line too big. Not too big to carry, but too big to use one handed. I am constantly hitting the search button with my palm when I am trying to hit something in the top right corner of the screen. One handed use of the Titan seems to be just out of the question. Honestly, I would prefer a 4" screen to a 4.3" screen.
    If you have small hands you should try a small screen. Here is an apple fanboy web page defending apples "right" way of doing screen sizes.

    Another week has started, and yet nothing for the US people. From HTC or Samsung. This is something to drool over to keep us afloat.

    Great job! Very nice review. The app list will offer a "jump" by first letter once you get past a certain amount of apps.

    How was 4s a bust? Its a dual core 1ghz (only to keep the Siri app happy I think as the 4 had a single core and was fast enough), dual core graphics. BT 4.0, great rear camera, HSPA, iOS5 improvements and arguably still one of the greatest cases on the market. The ONLY thing keeping me from another iphone is the small screen. I do not care if its 1080p its still only 3.5" and I can not make my videos or games bigger than 3.5". So its super crisp, but still need to have my nose against it to view it. That is the only thing making me switch from iphone to titan. I have made a mock up of the titan size and it still fits very comfortably in my pocket. I am only 5'7" and 155lbs, so unless you are a skinny jeans guy, you should be fine.

    I dont need a million apps, or 500,000. I just need the apps that I use and that is not many. Hopefully I will be able to find my favorite apps in win7 market.
    Review sites are saying the 4S' processor is a dual core 800mhz variant, but it doesn't really matter anyway. A dual core processor isn't needed as you said, and most likely isn't taken advantage of by the OS anyway. Once it is the phone should actually get even faster.

    My hands are a little small, but not freakishly small. I'd say they are the smaller end of normal. 3.5" is too small. 3.7" is fine, especially with a physical keyboard. 4" is perfect. 4.3" is borderline too big, its not a deal breaker, and I'd take 4.3" over 3.7", but I really just think 4.0" is the sweet spot. I just honestly feel that unless you want to use both hands every time you use the phone (other than maybe short texts) 4.7" is too much. I mean Dell was billing the 5.0" Streak as a tablet, not a phone.

    The Dell Streak is big, but more so because the bezel is huge. HTC did a great job with their bezel, that's why most sites are saying it feels great in the hands and fits good in pockets. *skinny jeans disqualified*

    That's all very well, but would it be OK with my Mankini 1jaxstate1 ? :)

    Good job on the review! Only disagreement would be having the address bar at the bottom. I think this is a GREAT feature!

    I am surprised there is no OC utility for JB iphones. They do underclock all their chips. The ip4 was a 1ghz downclocked to 800mhz as well.

    My hands are a little small, but not freakishly small. I'd say they are the smaller end of normal. 3.5" is too small. 3.7" is fine, especially with a physical keyboard. 4" is perfect. 4.3" is borderline too big, its not a deal breaker, and I'd take 4.3" over 3.7", but I really just think 4.0" is the sweet spot.

    Like I mentioned, I cut a cardboard sample of the titan and tried it out. It fits in my pocket just fine and actually does not fall sideways like my iphone in kahkis. I was able to hit most of the screen with my thumb one handed. Top right is a no-go of course. Typing one handed was not possible on my iphone and will not be possible on this either. The touch activates as I try to reach across. I was at the apple store today looking at the 4 compared to my 3g. The screen is a bit clearer, but not the "holy mother of god" increase that most apple fans claim it to be. I could still not see the small text on the iphone page at apple.com without zooming. The text I could read was just a little bit easier to make out than on my 3g. Maybe I will cut another sample of the titan and take some pictures of me trying to touch it with one hand. No reviews seem to do this. They are all two handed reviews.
