the thinner form factor and the lightness makes big phones awesome, you really don't know till you have tried one and got used to it for a couple weeks. I still think this one is a bit on the large side, but i love my galaxy note 2 and i don't even need to use the 1 hand operation setting and i can still type just fine with 1 hand. I don't understand why so many people are accepting of "phablets" ( I admit that term just blows)

I really don't know where these companies get their data to think people want phones bigger than a laptop. I think this whole tablet/smartphone trend just blurred their idea of what a phone or should be.
