[quotemsg=11482450,0,1017918][quotemsg=11481596,0,776510]I have nothing against the note(s). But for me--not saying for everyone else--4.7" screen is a really sweet spot. Big enough for quasi-practical use, yet still small enough to use with one hand. These phablets are getting out of hand (lol, I guess there's a pun in that). I'd sooner rather have a 4.5-4.7" phone, and a separate tablet (IMHO, 8" is the sweet spot for tablets). AIO to carry around all the time...not for me.
But they sure have been successful.[/quotemsg]
A bigger screen is always better for a device that encourage you to write on it. Of course, there is no reason for those who really really prefer a small screen to be forced to buy a phone with big screen. But for those who prefer the bigger screen, you know what they want it for: more space to write, bigger area to watch video, bigger area to view browser content. Do not be an Apple and think that there is only one correct way for the customers to use the device - the Apple way, all the approaches mean you are not doing it right. Haha.
Well, as I stated in my very first words, I was expressing my own personal preference on phone sizes and what I felt was comfortable to use in my hand. I flat out said that not everyone else may feel the same way. And followed up by recognizing that the Note line has sold very well (so obviously people want them).
It's an opinion of personal preference--not saying that others shouldn't have larger devices.
