In all fairness, the Butterfly is HUGE so a smaller device that controls it does make sense. I bought myself a One X+ recently, and I really fail to see how anyone can use a phone that's even bigger than that.

IMO 4.3 - 4.5" is the ideal dimension.

If the phone is so big, you may as well just carry your laptop around instead!

Ha, I had a long 'discussion' with someone about this the other day, as I suggested it justified my view that rolling too many technologies into the same unit was a bad idea.

I do intend to refer to my phone as a "dumbphone" from now on though.
