    i think 4.3 would be the perfect size. I had a Focus and Titan side by side and the Focus was just a tad too small, the Titan is just a tad too big...4.3 and possibly 4.5 would be just right. But I want to start seeing screens with little to no bezel. You could EASILY get a 4.5 screen in the 900 chassis.

    If Verizon would get off their arse they could release a 4.5 Lumia 910 with a 12mp cam and LTE in red and it would be a chart topper. Conversely, I think they could fit a 4" screen in the 800, **** maybe even back in LTE. No need to wait until WP8.

    I like the size of my Trophy, but I need to wait until upgrade time to see what is available. I am not opposed to a bigger phone, provided it is comfortable to hold, and fits in my pocket.

    For me, it's 3.7-3.8 that works. But I am very glad there are bigger screens out there for people who want them. :)

    The Titan is still comfortable enough for me to hold in one hand. It's not comfortable to operate single handed but I could definitely hold it and I'm a small 5' 3" person. I think the ideal size for me would be 5". Maybe a Note might work. We'll see.

    The lumia is kinda chunky. A lumia the size of a Galaxy Note would be horrible.

    I like the Trophy, I think it's 3.7". I looked at the Lumia and the Titan 2 and they were bigger than I would have wanted.

    I would pick between a 4.3" and 4.5" screen.

    I agree. When I had an iPhone I thought that I wanted a 4" screen, because I thought 4.3" would be too large. Then I got a Dell Venue Pro, and that had a 4.1" screen and it was fine. Then after that I got an HTC Titan and the 4.7" screen wasn't as big as I thought it would be. But it's still a little too big, when typing on my Titan and DVP back to back, the 4.7" screen makes me feel like I'm reaching a little too much, while the 4.1" screen feels a tiny bit cramped. So based on that, I'd say a 4.3-4.5" screen would be perfect.

    IMO ~4" is perfect. Squeeze that into something roughly the size of an iPhone = Money. My perfect overall Smartphone design ever is my Pre 3.
    Fits beautifully in the hand & KB is wonderful. If only they made the screen a tad bit bigger it would've been even better.

    For me a 4.5" screen is perfect. A screen larger than 4.5 becomes too bothersome to use for me.

    One thing I never got is how any phone these days can be considered too heavy. It's not like you have to be fit to hold a bulky phone. Samsung is making alot slim phones and people tend to compare other phones to them. I could understand if it was ridiculously sized.

    4" with a screen viewable outdoors.

    Never again will I buy a phone bigger than 4". Not worth the trouble for me :P

    It depends on the size of the user's hand. 3.5" seems to be the "one size fits all" solution, but for those with larger hands like mine, 3.8" is still suitable. I still have trouble trying to reach accross the screen, or reaching up to lock my HD7.

    I used to think 3.5 was ok until I got a 4.5. Then I realized my typos and video experience was affected. So 4.3 is ideal for me. It also depends on which was the manufacturer expands the screen. If they make it narrow then there is better one hand typing. If it's a bit wider then one hand typing is affected. With the Lumia I find I like typing in landscape for longer messages like this one. The flat edges make it fit just right in my hands.

    It depends on the physical size of the phone, but a 4.0-4.3" screen is perfect for me. Had the Galaxy Nexus and for the size I expected a better display and was sadly disappointed. Considering a return to WP7 with a Trophy off of eBay. Need to clear some stuff out over the next couple of weeks and will likely make the move back.

    A 1280 x 720 display and you were disappointed and going back to WP7? Umm, what WP7 device you plan on getting that will top that?

    I've own 3 windows phone, a Samsung Focus (original), a Lumia 800, and now a Lumia 900. The focus was an OK size, the 800 was just too small for me. I really like the size of the 900, but I can see some people would think it is too big. It's all about personal preference, and how good your eyes are!
