    On the left is a Defy with a 3.7" screen and if what is on the right truly is the bionic we're waiting on, the screen is going to be 4", 4.3" max, based on a little pixel comparison in the photo.

    I sure hope your right. 4.3 is almost too big as it is...atleast for me.

    I'll be buying it either way. As long as they release it in a decent timeframe.

    I dunno.. my math sucks... can someone please find a way to use scale to measure up the photos for size percentage increase between the two objects?

    My comparison was using the selection tool in paint to get a rectangle, used the pythagrean(sp?) theorem to determine the diagonal length in pixels got like 340 for the defy meaning about 91 pixels per inch, then came up with 370ish for the bionic putting it at barely 4 inches, granted it prolly isn't the most accurate of estimations, but a long way off from 4.5.

    Ever since that picture was released, a lot of people have been saying that it's clearly a 4.3" screen, not 4.5". I think it's pretty obvious that the phone on the right has a 4.3" screen myself.

    I'll take any size 4-4.3-4.5 as long as they get it to shelves soon.

    Whether it is 4.5 or 4.3 its probably going to be an good phone (hopefully). Plus does .2 more really matter? If anything I could hardly notice it unless I put the two sizes side by side

    Measuring the pic in sheer metrics, milimeters, if the one on the left is 3.7 then the one on the right is only 4.0

    I agree. I don't think it's 4.5" either but it doesn't matter. I'm getting this phone regardless of the screen size.

    Definitely bigger than a 4". A 4" screen would represent just over an 8% increase in the. diagonal measure. If it was 4.5" it would represent an increase of just over 21% or a fifth more and it doesn't look as though it quite makes that, so my vote from what I can see is 4.3. I hope I'm wrong because I handled att's 4.5 and it felt just fine.

    I used "MeasureIt" a firefox addon for onscreen pixel measurement, the Pythagorean Theorem and a little algebra. It is clearly a 4.3" (diagonal) screen in the picture, if that is a 3.7" next to it.

    I actually don't care either way 4.3" or 4.5" - I still want it!:)

    Good. IMO 4.3 is the best size.

    Yeah I figured it was. It didn't look like a 4.5" even compared to that Defy. I'm still gonna get it of course dancedroid
