Personally? Yeah. A smaller screen means easier to fit in my pocket. Its a phone, not a tablet. It needs to be easily portable. I also dont prefer lighter phones myself. That was something I liked about the Droid 1...it had a heft to it that made it feel solid. I know most people prefer lighter, but IMO too light is a bad thing. I'm not allowed an opinion unless I physically touch it? LOL If a phone is lacking in a spec I think is important, touching it is not going to change my mind. But there is a Verizon store on the way home...I will stop by and handle the Spectrum myself so that my opinion will be officially valid. I will do the same to all the models in the store so that I can have opinions on those as well heh heh.
