1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    +1 I played around with a windows 7 phone the other day and I really like the OS- actually, I think I prefer it to Apple's... especially since I highly doubt I'm going to buy a macbook anytime soon and am likely to stay with Windows-based computers. That said, 7 is a pretty new OS with some kinks to work out, aaaand verizon only has one option if you want a windows 7 phone. So I'm probably going to go with a Iphone 4s to replace my shitty old blackberry

    Unfortunate news about Jobs.
    My wife wants a bigger one still. I guess size does matter.

    Samsung Note 5.3" 1280 x 800. Actually she wants to use a 7" tablet as a phone if possible. Nuts.

    I'm OK with 4" but don't mind bigger. Will probably get a Galaxy S2 or next Nexus.
    Smaller than 4" and I can't type.

    Honestly, 4 inches is about as large as you can get for it to still make sense as a phone. These are devices you need to carry with you at all times and slip into your pocket. Any larger and you are looking at wearing it on a utility belt. Plus they become hard to use with one hand.

    I'm a tall guy with large hands and find it easy enough to type on my 3.5 inch iPhone, but can see how the screen being 4 inches would make it a nicer typing experience.

    Actually, I retract my previous statement. This phone sounds AWESOME:

    Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    9mm thin
    4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass
    TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz
    1GB of RAM
    32GB of built-in storage
    5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel in the front
    1080p HD video capture support
    LTE/HSPA depending on carrier
    Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
    NFC
    1,750 mAh battery

    low camera specs are the only thing. still going to get an iP4S as I think I'll be able to get it on my SERO plan.

    4.65" screen is enormous. be very hard to handle with one hand, depending on design.

    This is my parents we are talking about.... I almost considered recommending them a 3G for free heh. If it was me, yeah, I'd pay the hundred bucks, but for them, heh....I don't see them using the 4 to its full potential anyway.

    Curved glass on Nexus Prime looks neat and functional. The mic starts to get far from the mouth with these tabletphones.

    I tried typing on an Optimus with a 3.2 inch and it was like tupinb on a jwybgoRD wirg my fust. 3.5 inch slightly better but 4 inch was real nice. But I'm very new to the mobile keyboard thing, don't text.

    With the thinness of the Galaxy S2 I think I could pocket it.. the one hand use could be a problem.

    I think the sweet spot for these is between 3.5 and 4. Any smaller then 3.5 and it's a pain in the ass to type, any larger then 4 and it's just too big for most people.

    Honestly, the main selling point for the iPhone's screen to me is its quality. The pixel density is just about perfect for the size and the fact that it's an IPS display makes the colors and viewing angles great. Even if Apple went larger and did a 4 inch screen I would not be happy if they didn't match the overall screen quality. Only thing I would like to see improved is its anti-glare for use outdoors.
