    Did anyone come from a flip or similar device and initially thought their Droid x or x2 was HUGE?
    Now it seems just right. Couldn't imagine it being more perfectly sized.
    I wonder with the Bionic if it will again be just a matter of adjustment OR is there ever a tipping point that it j u s t got a little too big.
    Dunno. Time will tell.

    My wife went from the GZone to the Thunderbolt & couldn't believe the size difference.

    I was looking at one today. I think I am leaning towards the Thrive, but yea, she will be really impressed by how huge it is!

    Honestly the X series felt huge to me at first. Now I'm thinking a 4.5 or 5 in screen would be awesome!

    A 5-inch screen would be perfect for video chats, IMO.

    I suppose it is a matter of breaking old habits. I had grown accustomed to holding the phone in my right hand and reaching/manipulating buttons with my thumb. At some point this is going to be difficult if not impossible which obviously then requires a two handed approach (more like a mini-tablet).
    Our "phones" are really more our mini-PC's anyway which BTW once accepted as reality will make the inevitable "bugs" more acceptable as well.

    I actually wish the X2 was a little bigger! It looks & feels tiny in my big ol' meat paws! I dont know how i ever managed with a D1.

    Yes, I apologize for the inappropriate thread title. I was actually sitting reading the newspaper and had read a Car Dealers ad with the same title.
    No excuse for bad manners, If a Mod can change the title i'd appreciate it.
    Frankly, never occurred to me the probable age bracket this forum probably spans.

    As far as design size goes, I once said when someone commented on how HUGE my X was. I said, " No, not really a HUGE phone. Actually a pretty small computer".
    I just hate potential drops that come with the additional width. But hey, time and design marches on.
    It's all good.
