In a sharp change of subject, we’re moving to a topic which has been on my mind a lot lately. Are smartphones getting too big? When the iPhone first came into our lives, its 3.5” screen seemed pretty big, and the smartphones that followed were about the same impressive size. Five years later, we have a 4.8” Galaxy S3, a 4.7” new Nexus 4, a humongous 5.5” Galaxy Note 2, not to mention the 4” iPhone 5, which is bigger than 3.5” for the first time since its launch. The general direction seems to be toward bigger and bigger screens, but is that a good thing? Do you miss the good old 3.5” displays, or are you dreaming of using the Galaxy Note 2 as your every day phone? It’s time to make your opinion count. Remember, you don’t have to own a smartphone to have an opinion!

Why are bigger phones better? Why are smaller phones better? Which is the optimum screen size for a smartphone? Tell us everything in the comments!
