Regarding screen size: for me 4.3" is big enough. 4.7" phones tend to be unconfortable in skinny jeans and hard to use single handed (ex: when you're behind the wheel).

Maybe it's a good thing if you can't use your phone behind the wheel. Most communications aren't that important that they can't wait until you're at your destination.

I think we can put in another way.
For me is a nonsense to talk about display size, because it can be a 4.3" but with a big bezel. ONE S has a bigger bezel for example (just go and read the dimensions, you'll see more mm than sensation). So the important thing is the overall dimension.
I think that the perfect phone has a 720p rgb full display (4.3, or 4.5 with no bezel I don't care), with a removable long lasting battery and with dimensions smaller than 64*125.

Sealed it better. It means the battery can be bigger while the phone remains skinny. It's not like you can't use an external battery anyway.

Whit the bezel getting too thin, problems arise. You will, unintentionally touch the screen with the side of your palm and it will be more likely to break it.

For me, the sensation has the perfect size. This trend for bigger and bigger screens is just madness. If I want a big screen, I just grab my tablet and give that a go.

You're right, but first I think that they could develop some kind ok sensor technology able to distinguish when you're just holding it and when you mean to touch it, second if it's impossible to reduce the bezel, well okay just make the screen smaller to fit 64x125

in terms of smaller housing on phone you guys need to remember that it needs to pass drop tests. that is the reason verizon didn't get the original razer. when moto brought it to verizon they took it at waist height and dropped it on the floor and the demo broke. it was rejected until it could pass their drop tests which were the strictest in the industry next to nextel. since then they have drastically reduced their drop test criteria. strength of the bezel is part of that test. they can create a super thin fast badass phone but it it breaks on a 1 foot drop then it will meet with bitching and complaining from everyone. the one s seems to be a nice combination of small and strong.

If Samsung made a Galaxy S3 with 4.3" phone with 720p super amoled HD+ and exynos 32nm quad core with MALI 605 that would sell like hotcakes. That would sell better than iphones. Course it needs to have a good design and slim profile. BUT Alas they are going with 4.7" i hear. Thats not good if you want ur phone to sell like hotcakes! Most iphone user would chose a 4.3" device if they were to switch in my opinion.

Rezound and Xperia S has 4.3 but xperia is still a meh phone, rezound is fat and ugly.
