In addition to the recently started poll about the resolution of the next Jolla Phone I would like to start a poll regarding the screen size.

What is the ideal screen size for you?

I have listed a few screen sizes below, just choose one of them. If your prefered screen size is not listed feel free to add it as an answer. Keep in mind that the answer has to be community wiki as well.

Screen size does not really matter, important for me are the dimensions of the device. The current Jolla phone is ok, but I do not want a bigger one. Smaller (just like the N9) would be even better.

So it looks like Jolla should really consider making two (different sized) new phones, with similar specs.

4.5", as is, since it is useable with one hand. And the tablet is on its way... ;-)

The tablet part has nothing to do. Even if it were a 5"-range phone to be used with both hands, you could not replace it with a tablet.

@pulsar just to help you understand: If I want a bigger screen, I would buy a tablet. That is my personal opinion, which isn't subject to discuss. And, b.t.w. I CAN replace it by a tablet, if I personally want to do so. I for myself know, what I can and what I can't. If you have a different opinion, please state it as such and don't tell people, what they can do or not.

Since this is a poll I've marked your answer as "wiki", as all the other ones.

I´m not a TOH-fan, but for those who bought a lot of TOHs, particularly if it is a more expensive one (like TOHKBD) it is important to get a Jolla 2 with same dimensions like Jolla 1, because the TOH compatibility. In this case it would be a good thing if Jolla 2 gets a bigger display by same size of device.

I by myself prefer a smaller device with same display like Jolla 1 (4,5'') because it´s more handy and doesn´t need more power. I think a longer battery service life is more important. For people who needs bigger displays there is a tablet available next year. And btw, the resolution of 960x540 pixels is enough for me. I don´t understand the olympic run for higher and higher resolutions on phone market. It makes the device unnecessary expensive.

There is still place to fit a bit bigger screen in the same shell as Jolla 1 - just loose the black borders.

When you buy a new car, do you carry over your old wheels or sell them together with the car? Sell the TOHs together with the Jolla (or continue using them with it if you are going to keep it) and buy new ones in the new format (it's not that hard making new ones for new phone models if the electrical interface is kept the same).

If I had custom made, oak rims with white rubber tires and LED illumination, I would definitely look for a new car I could fit these wheels to, rather than wait until the manufacturer remakes a new set for me.

As big as possible - at least 5". The world's population is aging and with age comes eyesight problems.

~5.3 inch phablet

I''m currently using the Samsung Galaxy Note2.

I find the size perfect and wouldn't want to go smaller, 5.3 inches I believe. I would go bigger, not too much though. A Jolla phone based on similar sizing would be my preference to a smaller form factor.

Same size as jolla 1 but thinner bezel. To be able to reuse all TOH...

I don't like the question, I am against a new size of screen because of phone toh compatibility.
because it could bring the discussion that jolla 2 toh could not be compatible with the jolla 1. And my opinion, all jolla phones should have toh compatibility (mechanical) together. If not compatible, then is bad publicity i think for jolla, because all developement will take direction of more complexity. For a small team is a risk to eliminate.

Otherwise, should you open a thread as request for a phablet (variant between phone and tablet) where toh are don't needed anymore. That's the best way i think. Really

Ideal size would be 3.9", like the N9, but the size of the Jolla 1 should be kept for compatibility with existing TOH. However, the screen bezel should be minimized.

3.5 to 3.9 inches 720p is enough. I like small phones which are easily holdable with one hand and also usable with one hand without anything extreme finger flexibility. I don't care of TOH compatibility.
