    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.

    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.

    The perfect size of a phone would be close to the Droid X, but the screen size would be the size of the whole front side of the Droid X.

    I didn't have any problem with it. I gradually moved up with all my phones. I moved from a flip boost mobile pos to a no name samsung flip phone on verizon to the razr then got the razr2 that phone was sick loved how thin it was. Then went on to a env touch and that was my first big screen and phone at 3." Then i got this sucker and it felt nice cause typing on a 3" screen is impossible to me. I do miss its physical keyboard as that was the best key board made and to this date i think its better then the d3. Big buttons, properly spaced, easy to push (hated the d1 or og keyboard felt like i had to use all my might to press a letter), dedicated number buttons. Then i updated it through verizon cause of random shut downs and that update made me despise the phone other then it took 10hrs to charge everytime (im not kidding it literally took at least 10 hrs) and it stopped reading the battery correctly. But when i tried my brothers dx it felt right. And so i went with the dx2 when i could update which was june. There litterally no adjustment although i do miss the physical arrow buttons it made it easy to correct misspells a few words back my dx2 is not accurate at all in that department.

    I came into the world of Android late and I could have gotten an X but I thought it was way too big. I got the OG Droid and loved it but now look at it's screen and wonder how I didn't notice how small it was. Now I love my X2 and don't find it too big at all.

    More prophetic a thought than I initially imagined. I see "specs" being tossed about that screen sizes on future Droids are going well beyond 4",4.3", etc.
    These things are going to be mini-tablets before long requiring hands like Frankenstein or at least one HellBoy hand.
