with the increased screen size and speaker taking up space in front, this will be "much" longer than G2... every 0.1 mm counts...

Why must the keep increasing the screen size every year? I think in 10yrs time, all of us will be holding a 8" phone?

This is 5.5" already reach note2 size, too big to handle imo as a phone.

They should have kept the same size and just improve some other aspects. Yes, bigger body can put in a bigger battery, but bigger screen also takes up more juice, LPPL.

I guess the smartphone industry has become stagnant. Nothing else to upgrade, just keep increasing cpu speed, screen size and new android (not much change anyway), nothing much to look forward to liao.

The volume up down button now become horizontal? That's a bit weird isn't it?

5.5'' is kind of 'too big' IMO. Then what will happen to their Pro series? Merge huh?

2k display sia. I think 1080 is already damn awesomely good. In fact can barely spot the different between 1080 and 720 (under normal usage), unless you stare at the font closely. Is there really a need for 2k display?

For today's standard and the rich multimedia contents and more graphical usage in social apps, consumers really need bigger screen size to be able to truly enjoy with their mobile phones.

So, 5.5" is just the right minimum size for new breed and new generation of consumers! We can't care much about old-fashioned minded consumers now whom even think that a 5" display is already too big as well as in the phone size as a result of increased screen size.!

Also, 2K display is wasted on tiny screen. Therefore, it has to be at least a 5.5" to make any sense out of non-sense's HTC M8!

6 months later, any phone with a 5.5" will be considered a small screen phone! That's how the trend will be and the majority of new generstion of consumers want!

Really funny. I now using note 3 and find it too big. In fact i have been using note 1 before it.

Yesterday I took my 4.5 inch HTC desire 310 out for shopping. Very happy with the size. I will probably buy a 5 inch phone when I can renew contract in Oct.
