    The companies that are making these cellphones should do a survey to find out from consumers what size they want the cellphone to be. Not everyone wants big cellphones or small cellphones. Let the consumers have some input about the cellphones because they are the ones buying the cellphones.

                    Yeah, I must be an odd one out. My Note 10+'s screen is 6.8" and I think it's just a tad bit too small; about 7"-7.1" in its current form factor would be perfect for me.

                      you see,i have pretty big hands and really big fingers. Really bad accuracy at typing and therefore messaging is difficult cos i broke my phone and am having to use and iphone 5 for the time being*. Getting a new phone and looking at the a70 with a 6.7" screen. Too big? I dont know, but i do know that anything below 5.6" is too small.

                      *on my laptop - thats why theres no spelling errors like usual

                        5 inche mobile with good specs

                          My 4 inch iPhone SE is perfect for me, if I need a device with a more immersive display to watch a movie, I’ll use my 8 inch tablet. Case closed. There’s plenty of cheap tablets out there that can get the job done. There’s no need for these ridiculous 6 inch phones, absolutely none.

                                5.6" is ideal for myself personally.

                                    Ideal size would by 4.5 inches but won't mind going for 4.7, it's really a shame that all major players have stopped making phones of this size...Even in this age of full screen, bezelless phones, I would never want to have my screen size increased to above 4.7 inches, I really wish and hope that manufacturers realize this and start making phones and not some thing that's more of tablet and less of phone...
