Poll results: Android users prefer larger devices

We asked what you thought the ideal phone size was in a recent weekend poll. Well here are the results: the majority of AndroidPIT readers think 5 inches is the best phone size. But that's not all – there was another size that got almost the same number of votes. Read on for the details.

The results were close, but decisive. Of the 1,849 votes, there was a clear leaning towards phones larger than 5 inches, with 84 percent of votes sitting in the 5-inch-or-higher end of the spectrum. But the winning size was exactly 5 inches (the size of the HTC One M9 or the One Plus X) with 25 percent of your votes.  

However, 5.2 inches, the size of the Moto X (2014) for example, received a sizable 23 percent of all votes. This was followed by 5.5 inches at 19 percent. The biggest loser was 4 inches, which received a meager 2 percent of votes. iPhone 5se, anyone?

Below is a breakdown of how the voting went:

  • 4.7-5" is perfect. Most of us hold our phones close up while watching media for the most part.

  • My excellent Samsung galaxy Note4, 5.7 inch.

    My excellent Samsung Galaxy S5 is the perfect size. The majority of touches can be done with my thumb, though the top right corner needs my left hand. . The display is just right for reading and writing & It fits in my pocket with ease.

    Peace ✌

    I really love 5.7 and 6 inchs displays because I use YouTube a lot, but a 5.2 it's all right fitting in almost pockets and hands

    the key is it has to be able to fit comfortably in my pocket & use with one hand so a 4.7" screen is the sweet spot imo.. but a 5" edge-to-edge is fine also
