3.5 inches

Dustin Curtis on Apple’s decision to use a 3.5 inch screen:

When you first see a phone with a 4-inch or larger screen, it seems like a much better experience. I thought it was a technical decision, and it could be, but since switching to an Android phone — a Samsung Galaxy S II, the “best Android phone you can buy, anywhere” — 15 days ago, I have realized another huge downside of larger screens: when holding the phone with one hand, I can’t reach the other side of the screen with my thumb.

Interesting point and also what I experienced using the Nexus S for a few months now. Although having large hands definitely helped using a 4″ screen.
