We recently got to spend some time with a Lumia 1620 smartphone carrying a large, six-inch display. The handset was met with scepticism - it seems almost comically large when you first pick it up - but then, you get used to it, you start to enjoy the bigger display, and before you know it, it becomes difficult to go back to a smaller device.

But given the array of smartphone sizes now on the market, it's clear that one size doesn't fit all. So for the latest instalment of our Question of the Week, we're asking: what is the perfect smartphone size for you? And will your next handset be larger or smaller than your current? As always, let us know using the comments facility below.

I received my Xperia Z2 yesterday and I'd say that's just on limit maybe being slightly too big (coming from an Galaxy S3) - Ask me this question in 6 months and no doubt I'll have gotten used to it, I do have quite large hands which no doubt helps - I imagine it would be a pain otherwise.
I've gone from 3.8 inches to a 4.3 inch S4 mini. It's true that you get used to a bigger size really quick and then going back to a smaller size just feels so wrong.

I don't think I could go much bigger though, maybe 4.8 inches or somewhere around there would be my max. In the end I still want to be able to fit it in my pocket without feeling like I'm trying to smuggle a tablet in my pocket.

6 inches..no thanks, not for me. (that's what she said?) :0)
I went from a galaxy S2 to a galaxy Note 3. I love the bigger screen (and I have big hands so it's fine for me). Proportionally, my Note 3 fits in my hands about the same as my wife's S2 fits in her hands!

Not even thinking about the next phone, I usually get a good few years out of my phones rather than always upgrading!
One that fits comfortably in your pocket.

Currently have a Lumia 520, wouldn't want to go any larger really.
Like my moto g… 4,5inch… Under that, typing sucks, over 5inch, it's getting annoying in the pocket
