Smartphone users tend to prefer larger screens on their devices, according to a new survey from the research firm Strategy Analytics. The survey found most smartphone owners prefer displays that are between 4 and 4.5 inches. To put that in perspective, the iPhone has a 3.5-inch screen.

Many Android phones offer 4-inch displays, but the new trend seems to be making them much larger than that. For example, Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus has a massive 4.65-inch screen. The Samsung Galaxy Note is even larger with a 5.3-inch screen.

Strategy Analytics says 90% of those surveyed chose a larger smartphone over their own, as long as that phone was still thin and light.
