Why leh? 5.5" like the Note 2 already cannot put in pocket. I think the GS4 is more or less the biggest a guy's jeans can accommodate. Anyway the 1520 is meant to compete with all the Ultra-size phablets launched this year.
I'm holding a 5.5" LG G pro, and it is just nice for men pocket, the max size I guess.

Nokia's making devices of all shapes and sizes, I imagine a hi-end one with a 5.5" screen is coming soon enough.

I hope so for a 5.5" Nokia, man! I have never owned a Windows phone and love to try it.

However, 6" is just too big to be carried around.

If you mean pants, can lah. 6" also can fit... But jeans is another story, especially when sitting down. As it is, I can't drive with my Lumia 1020 in the pants.

Maybe that's why Samsung & LG is coming out with their curved smartphones.

Size matters for some people ... erm after using my beloved Sony Xperia Z Ultra for the last two months plus, I have decided to keep all my phones to this size range ... must be bigger than 6".

U know there are always those who likes them large.

For baggy pants or work pants with a more relaxed fit, 6" phones still ok, but if you rock more fitted attire a 6" phone is out, unless you don't mind holding it in your hand the whole time or dropping it into a bag. The 1520 is really just too big for some people. I've said the 920's screen is about as big as I'll go, but I actually wouldn't mind a Note-sized phone. The 1520 though, that is completely out.

I'm interested to know if Nokia's got any software to take advantage of that ginormous screen, though. No need for any of Samsung's useless gimmicks, a multiscreen app would be a great start

edit: I just brought up the phone to me wife (who just got the 1020), and she might be entertaining the idea of getting it lol. She watches dramas on the train, a 6" screen would be perfect for this particular usage case. Women would have no issues with carrying a giant phone anyway since they'd be lugging their bags along with them too

Women almost always use their phones with flip-case, screen protectors & other accessories. No problem there.

Yes I get it there're guys with big hands. That's why it's important that Nokia launches 1520 & 1320. Samsung has proven it's a thriving market.

i think even without a phablet-optimised app, the expanded 3-row homescreen is one standout feature that u can greatly benefit from this huge 6 inch display. One glance at the screen n u can see all the notifications u need from the live tiles, without the hassle of scrolling up or down to see more notifications.

This, compared to most android phablets that displays the same amount of info regardless of screen size, is a big advantage.

I think Chinese characters are the major benefactor of a large screen.

Isn't the 929 Verizon-only? Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to next year's crop of handsets. Quadcore 1080p 20MP camera in a cyan 925 form factor plz, thx Nokia
