    That's probably the best justification analysis for the size difference preferences in our age group that I've heard yet.

    Right now my 1st gen Moto X is the perfect size for me. The 4.7" screen is a nice size. My wife's DNA isn't too bad. I could get used to that if I had to but I don't really want to go bigger. Unfortunately I may not have a choice with the phones getting larger and larger every day. I'll have to see what's out there when the time comes.

    I used to carry a tablet tethered to my phone but not anymore.

    I have done this in the past. If my Turbo achieves root I'll be doing it again real soon! Only thing is will we be able to hack the hotspot? And if not, will one of the software solutions work once rooted?

    I hope for hotspot hack. That's really all I want root for now, other than maybe killing adware.

    Foxfi doesn't work on the Turbo? That's what I used.

    5.5 - 6

    I have to say that before picking up the Nexus 6 I would have sworn 5 - 5.2 was perfect. However, after just a couple of hours with the 6, I must say it felt extremely comfortable and natural in my hands. That's probably also due to the fact that even with the S4, I generally use two hands anyway, and the things I've wanted to do with one a pretty much within reach. All hands are different though.

    4.7-5" my Galaxy Nexus was near perfect for size, easy fit for one hand use. GS5 is the limit for my big hands.

    5" with absolutely minimal bezel....4.7" with most of what's out today. I can almost palm a basketball - my hand width (pinkie-to-thumb) is 9". That's at least average for a man, and there's no way I can reach the ENTIRE Turbo 5.2" display with my thumb without shifting the phone in my hand...4.7" is about the limit for that.

    I am a 5.5"+ user! I really enjoy the size of my Note 4....I was always happy with 4.7 and smaller and it took a while to get used to my Note 3 when I got it. I can certainly say now that I have become comfortable with the larger screens everything else just looks to small. I am not a big "one-handed" user so not having that ability is no big deal to me.
