Size does matter

I’m sure we all love Android for many different reasons, but handset size is probably one of the things which keep me interested in the platform. If you want a phone that’s small, medium, large, extra large or even extra extra large – there’s probably an Android phone out there that’s work for you. The problem is, I can’t seem to find the perfect phone for me.

In theory, I want a phone that’s small enough that I don’t have to adjust my hand to access the far edges of the screen, but I love the idea of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra which allows you to own a single device rather than having to lug around a phone and a tablet. I also use my phone to track my running and biking activities. I’m sure it’s doable, but it would look ridiculous if I ad a 6.4-inch device strapped to my arm. Right now I’m carrying the HTC One, but I’m torn. Do I upgrade to something bigger or go for something smaller. Each handset has its own unique advantages and disadvantages and we all compromise to find something that fits our needs best.

What size phone do you think is best? I’d love to know that phone you’re currently using and if the size of the device played into your decision to choose it.
