You're the Pundit: Do smartphone owners really want a bigger display?

When it comes to evaluating the next big thing, we turn to our secret weapon: the TUAW braintrust. We put the question to you and let you have your go at it. Today's topic is smartphones. When it comes to display size, is bigger really better?

Recently, a number of manufacturers have produced touch-based smart phones roughly the size of baby dolphins. At 5.3" the Galaxy note makes the iPhone look like a wee little girly man in comparison.

Is the iPhone a sad shrunken remnant of outdated smartphones? Or are the new jumbo-sized units on the market our new pumped-up smartphone overlords? Sure, size matters -- but in which direction?

You tell us. Place your vote in this poll and then join in the comments with all your analysis.
