Over the first three years of Android’s existence, we’ve seen screen sizes range from 3-inches to now, one with a shocking 5.3 inch display. For me, I am still getting used to the 4.3-inch screen on my HTC Sensation, which I think is a bit too big, coming from the original Motorola Droid and the iPhone 3GS, which were 3.7 and 3.5 inch screen respectively. But now, we have devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note that feature a 5.3 inch Super HD AMOLED display, which is almost too big to hold in your hands. Almost. 

The way I use my phone is with one hand, holding it while using my thumb to type most of the time. So, having a phone that can fit comfortably in my hand without being afraid of dropping it is a big plus for me. Now, what I’d really like is a phone that can change screen sizes. Say you want a 4″ device today, then you want a 7-9 inch tablet for tonight to watch a movie on Netfix, then back to a 4″ device for tomorrow. Now that would be awesome right? Think Asus Padfone, folks.
