    ...or are you carrying a gun? Get your minds out of the gutter guys. Is anybody else concerned about the size of this bad boy? I carry my phone in my pocket like most other people and this baby is much larger than my t-bolt, which is larger than my D2, which was larger than my LG Dare, which was larger than my LG flip phone. It seems like we're going to get to a point of phones being too big to carry. I didn't like the size of my bolt when I first got it. I'm used to it now, but dang, I don't want to be carrying a tablet around with me. This phone looks awesome. I guess I'll just have to see it up close an personal before I make a decision.

    I always said that the size of the OG was great 3.7 but a 4.0 would work well also. 4.3 always seemed to big but 4.65 seems even bigger. Looking at a comparison charge though it is almost same size as 4.3" phones since there are no physical buttons. Considering the developer push that this phone will have i am going with it. I did play the RAZR today though so maybe i'll have one of those as well.. :icon_ lala:

    I remember reading that the device itself is not 4.65 but since there are no capacitive buttons, that's what makes the screen size 4.65

    I'm not worried about the size. (That's what she said) I always carry my phones in my back pocket and and when I go to sit down, I always take it out and place it near me. So, no big inconvenience to me. And in the colder days, I just keep it in my coat/jacket pockets.

    That was always my preferred method as well. Then I started forgetting it was there and sitting on it:(

    "what's that crunching sound?" That sounds painfully expensive.

    That's what a lot of people keep saying, but the dimensions of the phone make it a a full 1/2 inch longer than a T-bolt. If you look at the phone, there is a lot of unused real estate both above the screen and below the screen. The screen goes close to the edges horizontally, but vertically, there's a lot of extra space.

    From what I've read this phone is less than .25" longer than the Bionic/Razr and is not quite as wide (2.71" vs 2.67"). So, it's not really much bigger. The useful screen size is about the same 4.3" as the other phones but has about .3" - .35" of additional screen length for the soft buttons.

    Galaxy Nexus = 5.33" X 2.67"
    Droid Razr = 5.14" X 2.71"

    Those are the numbers I've read, if they are wrong, please disregard

    Yep, it's just barely taller than the Razr and it's width is thinner than both the Razr and the Rezound.

    Should fit fine if you're used to a 4.3'' device. This is getting into innuendo territory so forgive me, but I think a taller phone is better than a wider phone when you're talking about space in the pocket. Pant pockets are usually deep, but not always wide.

    Those numbers look like what I have seen, and it's true it's not "that" much bigger than the other new phones, but my point is that it is significantly bigger that what is out there now. The T-bolt for example was considered a large phone when it came out is 4.8" as opposed to 5.33" (or 5.4 depending on where you read it). That's a pretty big jump. The width is about the same.

    I'm most concerned with thickness (or girth ;)). My OG is wearing out the denim of my jeans; I have a perfect faded outline wear the phone sits in my pocket, and it even put a hole in another pair of jeans. Gr...
