Samsung Infuse 4G vs. HP Veer 4G Size

Geek Out: Does Size Matter When It Comes to Your Phone?

I got two deliveries this morning: the Samsung Infuse 4G and the HP Veer 4G. Both phones are due to hit AT&T on May 15, and have quite the size difference between them. Initially, I thought the HP Veer would be my favorite of the two (since it's so adorably small), but after a quick tour around both devices, I'm kind of digging the Infuse's large 4.5-inch screen. It's almost like I'm holding a mini tablet that could still fit in my bag. Plus, it's so slim!

How do you feel about smartphone size? Does function trump form, or is it a special mix that attracts you to a new device? Talk it out in the comments!

I like the big screen on my iPhone.

I do like big screens on my phones but I wonder how big is too big. I went from a BlackBerry Curve (2.5") to a Motorola Droid (3.7") and currently use a Droid X (4.3") and I LOVE the screen on the Droid X. When I hold my Droid it just feels tiny by comparison even thought it's only a .6" difference. I think the screen is an excellent size and the largest I would go is 4.5".

I should give some of the props to the Infuse 4G's Super AMOLED Plus screen, too. That's probably swaying me toward "big" love as well.

I love the 4.3" screen on my HTC Thunderbolt. Though I do like the 4" screen that the HTC Incredible 2 has. But the big screen offers so much room to work with, and watching videos on it... love it. :D My phone has form AND function.

I could see going a bit bigger than the iPhone's 3.5" screen, but 4.5" just sounds too big. I'm pretty curious about the Veer though. Now that I have an iPad, I have found that a lot of surfing, reading, tweeting, etc. that I used to do on my iPhone has migrated to the iPad. I really only use my iPhone now when I'm mobile, so I could see where having a smaller phone could make sense.
