The smaller the better

Sure, but how small is too small? Phones are becoming so flimsy.

I have to admit, some phones are so small i would get worried about having one, it might get lost in my pocket because its so small..

I like the ones that are about the size of my hand, they are a reasonable size and work just fine.

I think anything is too small, if you have to hold it with your pinky out (like a tea cup).

The problem is when they get so small its hard to fit enough memory into them and easier for them to break.

personally I think it's part of a plot - make them so small you keep losing them and have to buy new ones!

seriously... think about it!

lol. You're closing in on the conspiracy!

Companies these days are trying to minimize everything so we can take everything along with us, everywhere. I prefer small phones over large bulky phones.

I think that about 3/4 of an inch is a nice thickness and about 2x3 inches is a nice size. My sister has the razor and I just find it to be way to small to handel I mean when I use it I think it is going to snap in half. I like my flip samsung because it is pretty much the size that I mentioned.

I did try out one of the new smaller phones, and it was way to small to feel comfortable in using ...one reason I'm still with my old Seimens for the moment!

I grew up with those huge piece-o-luggage cell phones that they had in the 80's, so all these modern phones seem pretty tiny and flimsy. Some, however, just seem nightmarish to talk on...and how the heck do you dial with those?!?

Exactly. Some of the ones I tried, you have to grow fingernails just to dial.

I just like the normal ones with NORMAL sized keypads, that you can dial with fat fingers, but are still relatively compact.

makes you wonder who they're marketing to - some women may have small fingers, but when you have to use tweezers to dial... sheesh!

I guess if you can't see/type the number-pad, then it is too small, isn't it?
