I don't know, I am a die-hard BB guy. Other than a Palm Pilot (7 series I think; the one that had wireless/email capabilities) I've never used a smart-phone other than a BB...and I don't use the BB as a cell phone! LOL.
That said, at a certain point -- size-wise -- you leave the smart-phone world and you go to a palm-top or tablet, or mini-tablet world. Where do you draw the line? My line is different than yours and so on. For me, a smart-phone is just that...a phone. It should fit in my hand comfortably and be nimble and easy to use, hold, maneuver, etc. I like the idea of the screen going end to end and being as large as possible inside of the form-factor, device size, etc. -- but to make these things bigger, get me to have to use a blue-tooth, ear piece, whatever...I don't know. For me, right now, that's just not me.
I agree. But smartphones are smartphones so screen size is a big factor. But, 4.5" is just about right. Above that, as you say, you need accessories. I do.
But then there are others who feel it isn't big enough and off they go and buy surfboards.
I reckon they should invent incorporated shavers on the screen, like an app, and guys like Roger could talk and shave simultaneously.
Well I can only imagine Roger saying the bigger the better with his Note fixation. Hey Tech if you don't use it as a phone you might as well go big and get a tablet. I'm pretty happy with the size of the s4.
