Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Once, twice, three times - a Very Large Phone™

Re: Why?

Yeah, 4.3" is definitely pushing it. 3.7" was always the sweet spot for me. Can I find one though? :(

Re: Why?

My point is I do carry something in my bag. It's called a tablet and it means I don't have to carry a laptop 90% of the time.

If I'm on the tube or standing on the train I don't want to hold a tablet in both hands. I want to use a phone one handed. And I'm not that keen to go into my bag to get it. Hence the need for a powerful, pocketable phone.

Re: Why?

Thank you, thank you. :)

It seems like I'm not the only one who wants this either. I'm not completely keen on flip phones, but I'd get one if it's the only way to get into my pocket.

Why?

I really don't get the trend for making Android devices bigger and bigger and bigger*. I've just jumped ship to the new iPhone. I love Android, and Google, but I just can't get an Android phone which isn't either gimped at a processer/performance level (the "anything mini" line of phones are crippled, all of them) or three times bigger than has the right to be put in a pocket. I've go a tablet guys - i want a small device, but I don't want to put up with poor performance.

The whole Android/IOS debate is moot if the bloody hardware is too bloody big.

* Actually I do, if you put a bunch of people in a focus group and asked them if they want a phone with a bigger screen of course they'll say yes. Just don't ask them if you want to put them in your pocket.

Well done

I think you've avoided the problem nicely, what with putting Android in a separate category!
