Best big screen phones

The best smartphones with screens 4in in size and above

Remember the days when mobile phones were becoming smaller and smaller? These days they're becoming bigger and bigger, mainly thanks to large, touchscreen displays.

Apple's iPhone may have kicked off the trend with its 3.5in capacitive touchscreen but the competition has well and truly surged ahead — many of the latest smartphones now come with displays 4in and over in size including the 4.3in HTC Desire HD, the upcoming 4.2in Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc and the 4in Samsung Galaxy S, Google Nexus S and Samsung Omnia 7.

We round-up the best smartphones with screens 4in in size and above.
