    5.7 inch screens are utterly stupid.

        Because ergonomics. Except everyones hands -except mine- grew a few cm the last few years.

          Well I personally constantly use phone for reading so I prefer bigger screen. Lack of convergence is almost criminal though.

            Convergence is not impossible on this phone, they are developing screencasting via wifi similar to Miracast.

              My Nexus 6p that I happily use everyday must be totally unusable.
              I do wish it had a slightly larger screen however.

                Same reason why those early brick cellphones you could use to bludgeon someone to death with were. They're so big as to be un-ergonomic, specially if you want to use them with one hand like I do.

                In my opinion 4" is about the right size and a bit under 5" is about the maximum that I can find comfortable.

                  I would like to see double the battery from 3050 to 6000 mAh and 128, 256, or even 512 GB on this bad boy but like it in its current state.

                    I prefer phones that are 6 inches. My hands aren't huge, but they aren't small like a child either. For me 6 is the sweet spot. I have the Nexus 6 and it gets the job done. Almost wish it was bigger at times for reading. Honestly though, I use head phones ALWAYS so putting a giant phone up to my ear never happens. Although the Nexus 6 doesn't look big when I am holding it and I am only 6 foot.
