5", 5.1", 5.2" And 5.5" Screen Phones: Which One Is The Ideal Size? by donhils: 12:39pm On Jul 24, 2016
Lately, phone makers have been hard at work in producing large screen phones up to 6 inches (which I find to be over the top), nevertheless, there are folks who prefer small or smaller screens like 4.5" or even 4" for whichever reason they may have.
For me however, I have a 5.2" Galaxy A5 2016, and a 5.3" LG G5, coming from 5.5" LG G Pro and G3, most times now I have mixed feelings about these screen sizes. Some times I feel I should stick with 5.2 or 5.3 but other times I feel 5.5 is better. Some guys argue that 5.1" as found in Galaxy S7 is the best while others say that 4.7" found on iPhones 6 and 6s are the best.
What's your take on screen sizes? Would u choose a 5.5" over 5.2, 5.1, 5.3, 5" or vice versa?

I use a 7 inches device. And it is not a tablet but kinda looks like it is. It's nice. I enjoy watching videos and playing games on it but it's not a pocketable stuff.

screen size is the diagonal measurement of d screen in inches. eg 5.5, 5.1, 4.5 inches
Resolution is d number of vertical pixels(row) multiplied by the number of horizontal pixels(column), which will give u the total amount of pixels in a phone. eg HD - (1280 x 720), full HD - (1920 x 1280), quad HD - (2580 x 1440), etc
