screen_size_surveyPhones these days come in a variety of sizes, and over the years it has been noticed that OEMs are starting to lean more towards larger displays. However is there a size that seems to be the most popular? It turns out there is, thanks to a recent survey conducted by DeviceAtlas (via PhoneArena) in which it was discovered that 4.7-inches is the most popular.

The survey was conducted in multiple countries around the world and in several major markets like the US, 4.7-inches was the dominant screen size and accounted for 41.5% of the market. This is similar in countries like France, Germany, Italy, the UK, Australia, and Japan. While they did not state specifically which devices, we suppose Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6s probably had a role to play in its popularity, or at least that’s what’s being speculated.

However like we said this varies from country to country as there are some places in the world, like Spain, where 5-inch displays are preferred. If anything this data seems to suggest that while having a large display makes it more appealing to surf the web and watch videos, sometimes a slightly smaller display also means that it is more ergonomic. So, which screen size is your preferred size?
