    Anybody else a little suspicious of 800x480 on a 4.7" screen? I know that's the only supported resolution for WP7, but it doesn't seem like enough to fill a 4.7" screen.

    You guys feeling ok about enormous pixels?

    It's still close to 200dpi. Reply

    I remember when people were happy with 480 lines on a 20 something inch TV. Those were the days :o)

    I'd be interested to see the screen myself though. At that sort of size I would imagine that you could comfortably read text on it while holding it at a distance, rather than right under your nose as many people seem to love to do with their phones at the moment.

    4" screens are already... a bit too big, not so much the screen but the body around it. When they can get the screen to the edge with a 4" screen, a phone shouldn't be much bigger.

    Sure, for women with purses - a big-ass phone is fine, but for us American guys - it usually goes into our pockets.

    Thickness IS NOT a problem with phones. Its the width! My Samsung Galaxy is 1/3 thinner than my last SONY slider phone, but its a 3/4 of an inch wider and I can't tell which side is up because of its body design.

    How about put some speakers on the FRONT end of the phone, so we can actually hear the sounds or alarms.

    I have a phone with a 4.3" screen and it fits into my pockets just fine, but then again I refuse to wear "trendy" skinny jeans. Many phones with 4.5" screens aren't that much bigger, just makes the device a little longer. This can be a plus as it puts the microphone closer to the mouth. I haven't seen a 4.7" screen in person yet so I'll hold off on judgement. Reply

    4.7" too big? Nope.

    3.5" is too small though. 4.3" screens are gorgeous. You don't have to squint to see stuff or hold your phone up to your face for smaller print.

    Maybe he uses his phone to surf the web and read articles on non-mobile-friendly sites. Having a bigger screen means less zooming and scrolling around, and more content in general on the screen without it being super tiny. Reply

    I honestly dont know how anyone could possibly prefer a tiny 3.5" screen over a screen thats around 4.3". It's clearly better especially if the phone is super thin like the GSII which compensates for the larger width/height. If the iPhone 5 has a larger screen i'm sure all these mindless people will suddenly change there mind. Reply

    "...mindless people will suddenly change there mind."

    I'm not disagreeing with your point, I just found that part of your final sentence particularly amusing :o)

    I don't like it :| it better be customable, i don't like those green rectangles filling the whole screen.

    And windows 8 will have this look too ? :|

    They don't have to be green and it's probably not for you as it's been designed to be easy to use (Which it is)

    ...and Windows 8 will have a tablet mode with a metro ui look/feel along with the standard desktop that you know.

    Personally, I like it and at least MS have tried something other than desktop icons. Now if they'd only sort out getting these things in the shops then that'd be great :o) Reply
