Does size matter?

How much fun can a guy have with six inches?
Is bigger really better?
Does size matter?
All questions that I have learned the answers to in the past month or so since I upgraded to a new cellular phone.
My old phone had a screen of only about 2 inches across, and my new one is about three times bigger or just over six inches across! A massive difference!
The last two phones I had, I wanted them to be small and ultra-compact. I am not sure why. Perhaps it was the James Bond or Mission Impossible effect. Secret agents always seem to have to coolest and smallest of gadgets!
This time I chose a phone that is one of the biggest on the market. At first I thought of it as bulky and awkward. But soon enough I really appreciated looking at photos on the screen or surfing the internet and Facebook with much more ease.
The only thing I haven't done yet is watch t.v. on it. Now the commercials for these larger phones show people watching sports, movies, etc. on them just about anywhere. While being able to watch sports or a movie anywhere is appealing... I just can't get the adage that a "big screen" t.v. is 50+ inches... not 6 inches!
The larger phone size is nice for many of the things I like to do on the device and I have had a great deal of fun with it. But I do not think I am ready to replace my t.v with it yet.

–Until then,
