Droid X Coming With a Large Screen

Are You Into the Large Screen Trend on New Smartphones?

Back in the day, it was all the rage to get a teeny tiny cell phone. The smaller was definitely the better. But now it seems that smartphones are getting larger — maybe not in weight, but in screen size. The new Droid X — which is said to drop on June 23, the day before the iPhone 4 hits the streets — comes with a massive 4.3 inch, multitouch screen, same as the HTC EVO 4G. Although these crisp and clear displays put your eyeballs at ease when watching movies, checking out photos, and playing games, they just aren't suitable for pocket-carrying or stuffing inside a small clutch. Not to mention, you're at a higher risk of damaging the screen with that extra-wide surface area!

Alternatively, the compact HTC Aria seems to be a fantastically compact option for Android lovers, while the iPhone keeps getting smaller and smaller every year. I'm not sure that I'm willing to sacrifice portability for the sake of a larger screen, especially since I don't really watch all that many movies or TV shows on my phone. What say you?

I love the large screen on my Droid X since it has been practically replacing my laptop for web browsing on the go. I have yet to use the blockbuster feature, but I will one day!

@SkinnyMarie Your husband won't let you have a smartphone but you clearly want one? Uh, is everything OK at home? This sounds like a red flag to me.

Well my Mytouch Slide has about the same size screen as the iphone..I think its a good enough size for me. I have a friend with the Evo and its great for him because his eyes arent all that good but my hands are small i cant really grip that phone lol

I like the 4.3 in. phones. But I don't think they should get any bigger because once you're past 5 in. it turns into a tablet. I'm really looking forward to upgrading to the evo 4g. I think alot of people are saying it's too big because the iphone stayed the same but had it gone up in size, everyone would be praising the bigger size. Eventually jobs will make it bigger and it'll be perfect.

I don't have a smart phone (husband won't let me :MOB:) but if I did I would like something reasonably sized. I agree with Le Romantique that the iphone is a good size and I think they should all stick to that size. As for a regular phone I prefer them to be as small as possible.

No, I don't like the bigger screens, and I don't like the touch screens, either. I don't need a huge display (maybe I will when I get older and lost my eyesight?!?). I just want a compact smartphone that's easy to store and keep safe since it goes everywhere with me. I love my blackberry pearl!

I think iPhone size is perfect. My friend has (one of the many) HTC's and its like a freaking iPad. So huge. It's cumbersome. I tried to used it once and I don't think my hand could properly grip it. haha PLUS I can read his texts from a mile away...
