    Lol good point but my hand might be smaller than yours (not insinuating anything else) and 5 would be perfect for me!

    Motorola did that with the Moto X, one of the most compact high end phones that exists, and what do you mean? the manufacturers put screens on the appropriately sized body relative to the screen...this thread is about what we prefer, a smaller phone with smaller screen, not as you said "different sizes on the same sized body" nobody does that...if the screen is smaller then the body is always smaller.

    It's a personal choice, and indeed a bigger hand is indeed handy (see what i did there :D) for bigger phones haha

    Well, regarding bigger screen size every year, I think it is absolutely inevitable that people will eventually evolve into species with extremely long fingers :D

    Well i actually just ment the Xperia Z and also if you look at the nexus 5, the top and bottom could be smaller :)

    No we'll reach a peak, a standard, I think around 5' is just that.

    I'd like the bigger screen option. My hands are small but I don't like small screens.

    Well there's a purpouse for that, it's a design choice, it's for comfortably holding the phone in certain ways, the new nexus 7 also had big bezels (bigger than the old nexus 7), each company's design choice is slightly different, but the point is that usually, even when comparing the different design choices by different companies, a smaller screen always means a smaller body in some way (xperia line is an exception in SOME cases..)

    The bezels on the new nexus devices are for holding the device with your thumb, while casually gaming etc.

    That's what she said :)

    But seriously, I would prefer a phone with a 5" screen in a 4.5" body, but I am buying it anyway.

    By the time the speculation is over, this phone will be a full laptop computer.

    My sweet spot is about 5" as my N5 is pretty perfect in my hands. Honestly this is a big part of the reason i'm intrigued with Oneplus is to see how they fit a 5.5 inch screen in a 5 inch phone.

    Do you use a case on yours? I did for a while and then tossed it. I had to get used to the size again, but I have to agree...the N5 is a really nice sized phone.

    yeah i got a case on it, a surprisingly thin clear case. Usually i tend to rock my phone naked but at the time since i just got the phone i wanted to protect my investment so to speak so i hit up amazon and got a cheap case that didn't bulk it up too much and doesn't hide the design.
