screenpollthumbTech Guide’s poll about the ideal screen size for a smartphone has yielded some surprising results. With so many options being offered by manufacturers we thought we’d ask our readers what they wanted.

Deciding on a screen size for your smartphone has become another variable people have to ponder before deciding on the product that’s right for them.

Tech Guide’s poll offered options from 3.5-inches all the way up to larger than 5-inches.

As of this morning, more than 500 readers took the Tech Guide poll and 67.3 per cent overwhelmingly favoured 3.5-inch as the ideal smartphone screen size.

A surprising result considering smartphone manufacturers are offering larger screens than ever before. Apple’s iPhone has a 3.5-inch screen.

Two of the more recent smartphones reviewed on Tech Guide include the Samsung Galaxy Note and the Nokia Lumia 800 with 5.3-inch and 3.7-inch screens respectively.

The next most popular screen size in the Tech Guide poll was 4.3-inches which won 6.5 per cent of the vote followed by 4-inch (6.1 per cent) and bigger than 5-inch (4.9 per cent) and 5-inch (4.5 per cent).

The least favourite sizes in Tech Guide’s poll was 3.7-inch which only scored 3.2 per cent of votes and 4.5-inch (3.6 per cent).
