    I like bigger screen phones. I have an S4 and seems small to me. Been looking at Nexus6 or Note4, but reluctant to give up UDP. When I got my S4, got comments that it was a huge phone. Don't see that, but to each their own.

    Coming from the Galaxy Nexus, I was reluctant to go to a larger screen but after checking out the LG G3, I bit. I like having more real estate for text display or for whatever app I am using. It is an advantage for aging eyes.

    I was concerned about carrying a larger device around but that concern was unfounded - for me. I have adapted to carrying and using the 5.5" screen, quite well. It is likely the upper size that I would consider for my phone use.

    I like 5.5" on my OnePlus. To me it felt like a perfect fit in terms of both screen and body size. I have to be honest, the screen on my Nexus makes the whole body a bit too big. I can use it fine and I can one hand it 80% of the time, but it's at the the absolute limit of being comfortable for me--and I have big hands. Any larger in any dimension and I'd really have to think twice about it.

    I want to say that 5.5" is the perfect screen size for me, but my i6 Plus defies that. It's simply too ginormous of a phone for the screen size. LG nailed that size imo by squeezing it into a tiny chasis.

    My Note Edge has a bigger screen, is easier to hold, and one handed mode is far better than the iOS Reachability equivalent.

    So I guess, for me, it would have to be 5.2" if you factor in the surrounding housing.

    I like the large screen real estate. Home buttons, big bezels, and then the added bulk that cases bring the larger screens are getting out of hand.

    Around 5.5" is a good spot for me but it's mostly because of fat fingers and bad eyes. It isn't that I can't use a smaller screen, it just becomes more difficult as I get older.

    My eyes prefer 5.5+. My hands prefer the 5.2 and ergonomics of the G2. My eyes won the argument.

    I own an S4 and Note 4, the S4 is way more comfortable and easier to use than the Note 4.
