All the newer devices have such huge screens. I can't understand it.

3.8" is the winner. Portable and with a good rez, crisp.

The droid incredible 1 was the last of the portable power devices. Everything went to 4" and larger after that. I have absolutely no interest in a 4 inch slab up against my face while on a phone call.

I think a 4" screen is a decent size. If I could get a 5" screen with less bezel around the device it might be okay. The EVO always seems like such a huge phone when I see it though. If they shaved some of the size off the top and bottom it wouldn't be so big.

My D2 is still smaller than my tri fold wallet so it's not like phones are that big yet. The screen is smaller than a business card and it would be nice if it was the size of one.

I've had an S2 for almost 2 months now and you definitely get used to the screen size. It's in no way too big after you use it for a week or two. If anything the phone is too light... I'm still not used to how light it is and often feel like it could slip out of my hands. I still need to get a case for it.

I have the HTC Sensation which has a 4.3" screen and the phone it self is the size as a Galaxy S but a little thicker. Me i picked the Sensation due to the higher rez screen and it makes a big diffrence. Can't go back to WVGA now but in some cases miss the AMOLED. But the screen an't bad on the Sensation and works much better in sun light then i thought it would.

Looks like I'll get a chance to see a Droid Inc1 in person. Can't wait.
