Poll: What is the ideal screen size for a smartphone?

Poll: What is the ideal screen size for a smartphone?

For several years now, smartphone displays have been growing steadily and bezels have been shrinking. Now that smartphones are coming in larger sizes, with few compact options left in the market, we want to know: What screen size do you prefer for your smartphone?

Given the sheer number of smartphone users, manufacturers have had to adapt their devices to the whims of the majority. Recently, it's been all about bezel-less displays, making it difficult to find smartphones with a screen size smaller than 5 inches in 2019. In the future, foldable smartphones could make compact devices popular again, while still offering a big screen.

Do you prefer smartphones that are big or small? AndroidPIT

In this week's poll, we want your opinion on the matter. So, what do you think is the ideal display size? Does the screen have to be huge in order to get the most out of the multimedia content, or is a smaller size and easy transportability best? Or, maybe the size of the screen doesn't matter because other factors are more important (brand, performance, etc). Let us know your thoughts in the comments and vote in the poll below!

The choice is yours!

  • Actually i like the Note8 screen size! Was hoping that the Note 10 or Note 10 Pro has bigger screen than the S10 Plus


  • My FIRST smartphone, in 2010, was a Dell Streak 5, a FIVE inch screen, back when smartphone screens were 3.5" (iphone). People would constantly put their phones, over my phone and say my screen was bigger than their phone! Why do you need such a large screen? Ummm, because that is what I want? Now, a 5" screen is considered "small".


  • For me the ideal size would be closer to 6" rather than 6.5". I am happy if I can reach most of the scream using my thumb.

    PS: The SPAM messages getting posted is really irritating.


  • I have a Samsung a50, which is 6.4 inch but I love phones with max 6 inches because they are pocket-friendly. :)

    5.7 of my Note 4 is perfect for me. I do not like the new long skinny phones of today


  • In 16:9 aspect ratio 5.7 was ideal but in 18:9 6.7 to 7.2 is best for me. I have xiaomi max 3 and Huawei mate 20X and i really enjoy these big screens for reading, browsing and watching media.


  • i tend to have a "larger" and a "smaller" smartphone (and then both Android and iOS).
    So I couldn't vote. :-(


  • With my big hands, and with some gesture based customizations allowing one handed use when required or relaxing, I find my bazel less 6.41 inches Oneplus 7 to be perfect, and hereby I would further emphasize that a smartphone shouldn't go beyond that size, because size above 6.4 inches and weight above 190 grams makes smartphone usage uncomfortable.
    Further, for a general audience who emphasize more on comfort of portability and manageability, 5.7 inches at max is sufficient and there is really a market for compact smartphones which needs to be acknowledged and addressed by smartphone manufacturers.


  • 5.6~5.7


  • I went from a 4 inch display to a 5.5 and have now settled on a 5 inch display. My work provided me with an iPhone 6s which has a 4.7 inch display, but I still prefer the 5 inch display of my pixel 2.
