I'll start off this post with pictures of the OMC next to other phones to give people an idea of its size.

OMC next to HTC Desire HD

OMC next to the legendary OSF

I've added more pictures of the OMC next to other devices on my blog: http://www.todoleo.com/2011/08/orange-monte-carlo-bap-pre-review.html

that is enormous - is it comfortable to hold in one hand width-wise?

can you use your thumb to press the buttons or is it a 2 hand operation?

apparently it weighs less than the blade somehow, which is pretty impressive.

Not sure what brightness your DHD is set on but it's making the OMC screen look good!

Yes, I can confirm. Even though all three phones in the pictures are LCD screens, the Reds Greens and Blues in the OMC screen seem to be deeper compared to the Desire HD and the OSF. The OMC screen is great, I personally love it.

The screen is one of the good things about the Monte Carlo. Really nice quality.

Well was all set on selling my Defy and getting the OMC, however I've been offered a swap for an N1. It's not the larger screen I wanted but I got to admit I miss my Desire sometimes...

Any pic of N1 screen next to an OMC.

I can take a picture of the OMC next to my HTC Desire if you like. I don't know anyone with a Nexus One. Picture coming up soon!

Here's a picture of my OMC next to my HTC Desire. (The HTC Desire is running Launcher 7 because I enjoy a bit of Metro UI every now and again)

Yes, my HTC Desire is a first generation one and it has the same OLED screen as the Nexus One. I still love my HTC Desire, but browsing the web and doing things on the Monte Carlo's 4.3" screen is a real pleasure.

I'm torn for what to do. Kind of wish I could just do a direct swap my defy for an OMC or just get 160 for my Defy without the whole ebay slog. Or do I swap it for the n1 or just keep the defy.

I know the n1 and defy are technically better than the OMC but I have my reasons for wanting to go with the underdog.

I've just uploaded a batch of comparison photos on my blog.

Feel free to leave comments either here or on the blog itself.

Your blog has confirmed that the screen of the OMC is slightly larger than that of the Nokia 1100. Should anybody wish to dispute this claim, I direct them to this picture.

I'm not sure... I think that with my terrible photography and the angle/lighting in the picture I have given everyone the wrong impression that the OMC's screen is larger than the Nokia 1100's one. I'll just go and double check! ;-)

I've just double checked! For some strange reason the Orange Monte Carlo's screen is actually larger than the Nokia 1100. How odd! ;-)

Just to put the size of the OMC in to perspective... it's not huge!
