As the title says I'm quickly falling out of love with whole apple iphone, and the total bull+++ that comes from the company ie let's launch a 5C which is a iphone 5 but plastic, I have been playing with the note3 and extremely impressed with the feel of the phone, so why shouldn't I change?

You'll need big pockets

He's already tried it so I suspect will be fully aware of it's size.

If you want to make the change, I say go for it. The Note 3 looks like a good device.

Going from a perfectly pocketable phone to a un-pocketable phone would be the biggest down point for me. Any apps you've bought you'll have to buy again too.

Just don't please.

You know the note will fit in pretty much any pocket right? My pal has his note in his jeans and work trouser pockets every day.

In jeans pocket, really? I'm amazed they aren't afraid of breaking it every time they sit down.

Although I joke about the size of the phone (but mainly because of how big it is when held to your head), there is no denying it is a big phone.

although if you want something that is HD that you can actually see properly instead of a training phone it's the way to go.

Most of the Android versions are free. Apps tend to cost less on the Play Store as well.

Yep, in his jeans pocket and his work trousers. No breakages.

It is a big phone however.

Tiny compared to some of the other phones out there, this will be the standard size soon. I don't think there is any top notch phone now below 4.3 inches which everyone thought huge once.

Or a small tablet. To me its a compromise either way.

It would be interesting to know what the screen size sells the most.

Well I'd never own a phone that's bigger than my hand, a "mobile" phone needs to be just that for me, if it doesn't fit comfortably in my pocket(and so I can sit down without repositioning it) then it's too big.

That's why I'm happy with the iphone 5/5s size, slip it into your pocket and you wouldn't even know it's there.

I think 4.3 - 4.8" is a decent sized screen. I don't have any pocketing issues with the Nexus 4, perhaps it helps that it's also very thin.

I think 4.9" onwards can be awkward to use especially with one hand, but everyone is different and some may prefer it. I'm just glad that with Android, I can take my apps and account onto devices of all kinds of shapes and sizes.

I have a feeling the n5 might be 5"

Also screen size is a red herring some phones have tiny screens but are huge overall nearly as big as proper phones.

To a point, yes. I would really like to get a premium replacement for my ace 2, but no one does one.

The iPhone 5/5S for me is to small and the stretched screen for me anyway looks very odd.

As long as it fits in the pocket which it does, then to me its fine. No compromise. I don't have one simply as im not overly keen on Samsung phones these days.
