Simple question: What is your preferred size range for smartphone screens? 

 

For me it has to be around 5". Good compromise between screen estate and usability.

4.3" 'candybar'

 

Anything bigger is a two handed device.

Both my phones are 4.5-4.7", pretty comfortable with that size. I could go probably up to 5 but after that it's a small tablet, not a phone.
