    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 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.

    The X at 4.3", the extra length compared to the EVO ...it was fine. I think the max I would do is 4.5". The Droid X was a lil longer than the EVO probably due to the antennas in the X. If a company has to make the phone a lil bigger, longer to have better antennas, I will gladly take the extra size.

    The one reason I kept my Droid X1 when I first got it was it had better reception than my Droid 1. The Droid 1 has great reception.

    Actually, the X is longer than the EVO because of the aspect ratio of the screen. Antennas aren't a factor. The X is 16:9, like an HDTV, which makes it longer and skinnier than the EVO. I believe the EVO is something like 5:3, which makes it wider than the X, but not as long. Both are 4.3" corner to corner, the dimensions of the screen are just different.

    That is one of the most ignorant statements I have ever heard, so since your hands are so small get a flip phone!
