I respect the OP's opinions but mine are totally different.
I need a larger screen, and by no means do i have big hands or find it as easy to use a 5" phone.
But browsing and typing are just so so much better exprerience on a larger screen.
My last contact with ios was last year abouth this time, when i tried an iphone4 for a couple of months.
It was so much smaller!!!
Also i found that i needed much more time to do things with ios than on Android, for example typing was an auful exprience, app integration into system was zero, too many limitations for me.
Android is powerful, i can mod it, i can easily customise it to fit my needs, toggles, status bar, lockscreen, ringtones, alternate keyboard, sd card mounting, icons, launchers, u name it.
I am not tall ( 1.83cm and i have small hands for my height )
I never had trouble reaching the top right corner with my phones.
In the pics i show a 4.5" Chinese phone, and i think i could easily handle a 5-5.5" phone.
