    How sure are we that the Bionic will have a 4.5" screen? If this is the case I'll probably be getting a T-bolt instead. Not really crazy about that size either but don't want bigger.

    4.5 is OVERKILL, I'll say it again, if people need a screen that big on a phone, go get yourself a tablet or something. you're gonna need bigger pants and hands to handle a 4.5 lol

    Well not all of us are 5'2" with little hands and pockets. I personally am 6'4" with big hands and pockets. I currently have the Droid Incredible and am very tired of the small screen and long for something to fit my hand.

    You do realize the average American male height age 20+ is 5' 9'' 1/2. They make these phones with the average population in mind.

    Even being 6'1'' myself, I think 4.5 is rather large. 4.3 is definitely sufficient. Anything over 4 is really just for show. They should be working on resolution, not size.

    Is there really that big a difference in the overall size of the phones between 4.3 and 4.5?

    I didn't think there was but I guess the way people are talking there is more than .02 in difference...

    No kidding, my contract ends 8/31/2011 but I have a early upgrade. So I'm not gonna wait for my contract to end if it comes out before then.

    I want a 5 inch screen, 4.5 is a good step towards that. Why is it all the people with small hands are the ones mostly speaking up. 4.5 would a nice.

    For us guys with big hand 4.5" is a excellent size. But I truly doubt it will be 4.5". It is going to be 4.3"...

    I'm with you on this one! I'm 6'6. 4.5 or 5" would be great. My D1 has always been a little cumbersome for my giant hands.
