    Or, similarly, a Windows 8 phone in that form factor? I have read rumors of Samsung and Nokia about a "hybrid device" and I am hoping that is what they are talking about. I am rocking a Samsung Focus right now, and used to have a Titan (screen shattered). That Titan gave me a taste of what I am really looking for, and I'm super attracted to the Galaxy Note and hoping that with Apollo we might get a device this size.

    That's a little bit too big for me.

    I can see how it wouldn't be for everyone, but I do have ham-sized hands, so I think I could pull it off. I'm 6'5", and "husky", lol.

    I would not buy a phone that large. I'm looking for something larger than my current 3.8 inch screen but I personally think the Note is ridiculous- and I don't think the idea of a "phablet" helps with that. This is just my opinion obviously.

    I think it would feel just fine in my hands, but I'm not sure about my pockets. I would worry about it looking ridiculous, and I sometimes put my Trophy in the same pocket as my keys (with the screen facing away), and I'm not sure that would work with such a big phone.

    I've felt so deprived on Verizon that I'd pretty much buy any new phone with a good camera and an AMOLED screen, though.

    I have a 7" Android tablet and a 4.3" WP so no, I wouldn't buy a 5+ inch WP. But if I only could have one device I would look long and hard at a Note-sized phone. If that were the case I would prefer it be a Windows phone.

    No. I am looking forward to a 10"-11" RT tablet to compliment my 4.3" L900. No interest in a 5.3" phone, especially with a stylus. Been there, done that for 15 years with Palm Pilots, Pocket PCs and WM.

    I would definitely consider a Note sized device, but I think a 4.7-4.8" screen would be more user friendly for me.

    the note is too big, i wouldn't like to hold that to my ear.

    i think 4.5 inch would be ideally the max for a phone.

    the old n810 had the 4.3in which i always thought was really nice.

    The Note is too big. I like belt holsters, but I cannot imagine carrying something the size of the Note in one.

    Maybe if it was Windows RT. WP has no use for all that room and has no stylus support.

    Not unless it has some insane hardware advantages over the other devices.

    I'm actually looking to go down a bit in size... I'm hoping Nokia delivers a pureview with a 3.8"-4" CB SAMOLED+ at least QHD rez (720p at that size would be more than needed) and dual core. Don't care about LTE.

    4.3 is the sweetspot. 4.8 inches is the limit for me.

    i would buy it for browsing gaming listening to music and watching movie or typing text like a entertainment gadget but i wouldn't take it with me as a daily phone for work
    i consider 4.3 to 4.7 perfect screen for smartphone since i have big hands i tried 3.5-3.7 phones i always press the wrong keys

    I'm with the others. I have a 3.7" now but, I want larger for reading, videos and games. Going over 5" is in the tablet range. As I agree a larger display would be usefull but, day to day uses are most important.

    If it can't fit in my pocket, it does not fit the need. 4.3-4.5 would be the sweetspot. No a belt clip wont work, It needs to fit in a pocket with no issues or large bulk...

    That's about 1.3" too big for me.

    I think I'd prefer a 4" screen but I'd go as large as a 4.3" screen if I really liked the phone.

    I think 4.7 or 4.8 is the biggest to be carried around comfortably.

    I'd love the bigger screen of Note, but you need a separate bag just
    to carry around the phone. For ladies may be, for a guy without a hand bag
    I'd say No.

    No way. I have a Trophy now and l, while I'd like a little bigger screen, I think 4-4.3" is what I want.

    Lately I feel like my WP7 is more of a gaming device than a phone so yes I would lean more towards a bigger screen and would be pretty comfortable with that.

    Yes, I would. If it was exactly like Note, with the pen and everything, then yes yes yes yes yes. In fact, if it was announced today to be released as a WP8 launch device, then I'd probably go put my preorder in this afternoon.
